'06 Speedster SCIC boost-dump valve!?
On my '06, between the supercharger and the engine - where the s/c hose connects to the engine, there is a small nozzle that looks like and is about the same size as a grease nipple. At idle rpms out of the water, it was dumping boost. My buddy's '05 doesn't have these. Any idea what they are/what purpose they serve? I'd really like to know before investing in new s/c impellers that all the added boost won't just get dumped off.

take a picture... you sure you aren't talking about the Throttle Body lubrication port that they added to the 2006 machines?

Pics . . .
I gotta take a break from trying to figure out how to upload pics here or I'm gonna start breaking stuff. Max pic upload is 4kb & my pics are like 900 kb. Definitely not the lube for the throttle body, though right in front of the throttle body. Brass "nipple" or small post with a hole in the center . . . almost like a huge carb needle that is centered on the engine intake right in front of the s/c hose clamp. I will try to upload pics later today, or will email them to any address you direct. Thanks!

what is this valve?
This link is to three pictures of the "valve" in question. It's the brass-colored post coming out in front of the s/c hose clamp.

yep superduty is correct... that's just a lubircation port for the throttle body.
Do you have a plastic yellow nipple on the engine cowling somewhere? if not, then you never got the lubrication setup from the factory. if you DO see the little yellow plastic nipple/cap on the plastic engine cowling then the hose fell off... find the hose in there that connects from that yellow nipple and put it back on that brass barb by the throttle body
or just get a rubber cap and cap that sucker and zip tie it on
