    Are you going to port the housing since its open or is that a blown charger?

    Thanks for posting that up.

    It's brand new s/c that had a slight sticking problem (when trying to turn by hand) but fixed now after disassembly, cleaning and re-assembly. Porting is an option, however, at the downstream the charged air still has to go through lots of loops. Not sure how much benefit would be resulted. Porting downstream parts like head & intake manfold might be a better bet.

    I obviously know very little about engines and they're moving parts, but I'm surprised at how diff. the Kawi SC looks from the SD counter part. That's very impressive engineering, and I enjoyed your pix, MG.

    When I removed the front pulley/center gear cases from the rotor housing, I was able to spin the rotors by hand but not as easily as expected. The front pulley/center gear cases components were fine - all turned freely and no foreign material found. So, I knew the trouble was inside the rotor housing. When I pulled out the Gear & Rotor Plate from the rotor housing, I saw some black powdery & wet substance covering inside wall of the exit side of the rotor housing - see the last pic of mine showing the inside. When I felt with my finger, they were more like wet dust. They looked almost like grease but too grainy like sand but much finer. I have no clue what it was. I think whatever it was causing too much friction/drag between the rotor blade tip and the housing which have very tight clearance. I wiped off the substance and reassembled the s/c back together using 3M silicone sealant between the mating surfaces of the cases, very very thin layer. Then I filled the gear housing with 125 cc of fresh s/c oil.
