Supercharger clutch failiure, help needed
hey guys, i was out today on my ski, and was jumping the wake of the back of a boat. the ski ran fine for about 2 hrs, then one jump i lost power, there was no supercharger power so i ran to shore on the engine powr assuming the shaft had snapped or something, (ski would not boost and was max speed 43mph) upon inspection i could spin the c3 in both directions freely, and running the ski there is no classic supercharger rattle ive just stripped the charger off and the c3 and shaft is in perfect shape, with no play at all, the cogs attatching to the crank spin with ease, so im assuming the cluth has blown
my questions are, how much of a job is it to do? and what is the price involved ie how much is a new clutch, is there an upratted clutch? im on and off the throttle like a yo.yo so thats probably whats done it.

I am looking at all your mods and I do not see a Blow Off Valve. It is recommended to get one to relieve pressure.

does anybody know of an uprated alternative to the original?
does anybody have any detailed instructions or pics for the clutch removal?
does anybody know any prices or where to buy?

Sucks dude! Just had to have mine replaced on my conversion.
This should help a great deal.
Get the whole bearing kit. Around $375 from Riva. Get all the gaskets too.

In my heart, I know I should order a clutch replacement kit right now.
