    How can I tell if supercharger is going bad

    The last few times out my stage 1 fzr seems slower both in acceleration and top end. If the supercharger was going bad would I still reach max rpms?
    I'm only 50 off right now.

    thanks

    50 rpm is nothing, Here in Florida with the high heat and hot waters you can lose 300 rpm from winter to summer.

    Jim, you see a boost drop or the same boost ? Same boost with heat soak that causes the rpm drop, pushing that hot,humid air into the motor?

    our boost numbers are lower in the summer, In the winter we see 1 to 2 pounds of boost more.
