    Need help with RXP

    Something is wrong with my 2004 Seadoo RXP and I'm scared to continue riding it and break it further. I'm trying to at least get a diagnosis before tomorrow evening (Wed) so that I can order parts asap.

    The problem:
    -The ski is making a high pitched whining sound. (Higher pitched and a different tone than the normal sound it was making from my intake, etc. I noticed a difference, you may not be able to notice it.)

    - The bigger deal is that it's topping out at 70 mph and about 7200 rpm or so. This ski was doing 81.5 at 8600 just a few weeks ago. There is absolutely no torque either. This ski used to throw you back out of the seat.

    HEre's a video:

    (Just watch from :30 to the end....I had to let off a little bit in the beginning. Not easy to hold the camera without a wrist strap, steer, hold on, and squeeze throttle at the same time)

    Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm new to fixing my ski - any suggestions on how to troubleshoot/fix this? What can I look for specifically to determine if this is definitely the problem?

    Sounds like you have a supercharger bearing(s) on its way out. I wouldn't start that ski up again. Pull the charger and inspect before you risk it.
