Oil on the intake tube !!!
LAST WEEKEND MY INTAKE TUBE KEPT COMING OFF. I USED A "T" CLAMP AND IT STILL CAME OFF.
WHEN I TOOK THE AIR TUBE OFF IT WAS VERY OILY.........
SINCE I HAVE THE CRANKCASE VENT TO THE ATMOSHERE, THE ONLY WAY TO GET OIL IN THERE IS THROUGH THE SUPERCHARGER THRUST PLATE.
I REMOVED THE S.C. AND REMOVED THE HOUSING, THERE IS SOME OIL RESIDUE IN THERE, IT IS LIKE A LIGHT COATING IN THE HOUSING.....
THERE IS NO FORWARD OR BACK MOVEMENT ON THE SHAFT.
IS THIS WHAT I NEED TO REPAIR THE PROBLEM?
R&D FZR/SHO Supercharger Rebuild Kit for C3/C5 assembly
IF IT NEEDS A REBUILD KIT I MIGHT AS WELL ADD THIS TO MY LIST TOO......

Are you using the stock oil breather box or a catch can?

With the C5 & offshore racing you do, it might still be venting some oil vapor into the hull. I had that problem when I was using a can in place of the breather box. I had a light oily film on the whole intake tract. You might want to rinse your IC with some soapy water too, just to make sure it's not losing efficiency from being coated with oil.
Probably not a bad idea to replace thrust washer. It does require some machining to your housing. R&D offers the service or they will send you specs to bring to a local machinest.

I have an engine 101 question. Where does the oil catch can go? I blocked off my beather hole on the intake and stuck a breather on the tube.

That's good that the IC hose was not oily. If it's not enough to make a mess off the entire tract, I probably wouldn't worry about it. I remember Rossnemo came up with an evac system to pull vapors from the case but don't remember how it turned out.
