Another Cavitation or Supercharger clutch thread
Just had my 04 RXP rebuilt at 100 hrs (dropped a valve).
Took it out for the first time the other day for about 3 hours, and 3 times during the day i had some cavitation or S/C slippage
If i stopped and tried to take off slowly, it would only have approx 50% power, vibrate, and not sound right (deeper note i spose) up until about 6,000RPM's and it would bite in and take off like normal. This only lasted for maybe 5-10 seconds all 3 times and would still do it even if i turned the ski off and started it again.
This never happened before the rebuild and even if i tried, i cant make it slip/cavitate it seems completely random.
age old question, simple cavitation, or supercharger slip?

Cavitation, SC slip will make the motor "flat", no vibration etc.

I'd say the carbon seal isn't sealing properly. Check to make sure the carbon seal is centered on the floating ring and nothing is pressing on the bellows...
