RXT Loss of power, Help...
Ok I'm new to the forum and need a little help and advice. Went to the lake this weekend and just as soon as I took off from the ramp I noticed that the power was way down, could still hear the turbo whining and all sounded normal, just couldn't find out why the loss of power, then I talked to two of my friends that have RXT's and they both locked up their engines with ceramic pieces in them. Whats the deal ??? Why not a recall yet? Anyway, My ski is still ran but put it on the trailer, whats the next step ? Do I just need the new (Ti) washers and/or Ceramic bearings... I have read alot of the posts, just don't know if I need total rebuild or just repair whats broke.
2006 RXT 48 Hrs 50MPH top speed

Okay....first things first....welcome to the board.
Now...no turbo...super charger.
With engine off...remove the inlet to the sc and try to turn the blades with your finger tip.

Excuse me, Supercharger... If it's whining it should be turning, right ?

You still need to check your supercharger. 50 mph is as fast as these ski's will go without the supercharger pushing. I would bet money that the ceramic supercharger washer went out and did some destruction to your engine.

You might be lucky and just have a hose that is loose/came off ... check the SC to TB hose and clamps and also check to see if you can spin the SC impeller as mentioned.
