    RXP S/C Need Advice ASAP

    My supercharger broke when I had 31 hours on my RXP. Everything was fixed and I was out on the water 2 days later. After putting 2 hours on my ski the supercharger quit again. My RXP was in the shop for about 3 weeks but I am going to be able to ride it this weekend. I am leaving to my lakehouse Saturday night or Sunday morning. It's 3 hours away from my home and there is no computer access, so i was wondering if anybody can give me suggestions on how not to ride in order to keep everything working? Don't hold WOT for more than a certain amount of time? Don't jump out of the water purposely? I've read numerous posts on people's supercharger clutchs slipping and other things on the s/c breaking and I wasn't sure if it has everything to do with the engineering behind the watercraft or if it is from abuse or riding a certain way? As of now I don't have a BOV or a boost gauge so I cannot relieve the supercharger or check if the boost it puts out is in the right range. If there is anything I should avoid doing to help preserve my supercharger's life please reply ASAP.

    Fizzle, i try not to hold WOT when running thru chop and coming unhooked. Hold WOT as long as you like in flat water though.

    Also, when running WOT and you are ready to slow down don't just let go of the throttle. Ease out of it slowly. This will put much less strain on your clutch.

    Massive deceleration is the biggest strain on the clutch. On flat water, ride it like you rented it. But try not to completely release the throttle at WOT if you don't have to. In the heavy chop, let off the throttle when you get airborn. This doesn't guarantee to save your clutch, but it reduces the stress on it.
