    X-charger, to fill the hole or leave it empty?

    I have read that some people are blocking the hole that seadoo put into the x-charger for more oil. Still not sure if I should plug it or not, dont want to pop a seal or starve bearings. Just got an x-charger for my 04 without the 08 oiler mod, that will be installed this winter. Any help, words or suggestions would be swell.
    Thanks

    I just put an X-charger in my '04. Left the hole open. People were blocking the hole because of oil in the intake. The hole on the shaft doesn't cause this but rather a bad oil seal on the charger.

    Keep it open.

    Others have said good things about this seal and I'm having my X rebuilt with it.

    Thanks for the info, I thought they went from having too much oil in there where the bearings are. Also thought you needed to take the whole charger apart to change that crappy seal.

    Went through 2 X-chargers. First puked oil like a mofo. Got a second one and same deal. Soon as I plugged the hole it stopped. It is what it is I guess.
