    Advice on preventative maintenance an sc rebuild

    I have an 04 gtx sc ski and it's so much fun, but it's on a trailer now. It ran great last time I rode it but lack of power and I realizes the sc needs rebuild. I'll post a picture once I get that last bolt out and want to make sure it's rebuildable. I want to do that if it is but while I'm working on it I'm going to replace clamps and such but what about my stock valves, it's been a neglected ski my dad never winterized it and it overheated once but it still runs but I'm afraid of dropped valve and don't really have much money any advice?

    do a compression test and a leak down test will check your valves
    new valves about $1500 for everything

    Well i can do the compression test with my sc off and exhaust hoses and such undone correct? Ground spark plugs and turn her over with a compression checker if im not mistaken? And valves are about 550 for all of them, your including cost of springs, bolts, rockers? Labor? Hmmmm

    I dont have a lot of money, not trying to get faster i just want it to not blow up like it did on my friends ski, 05 rxp with less than 100 hours. I can keep everything else stock right? Ferreas, head bolts, and head gasket and the engine of the ski should be pretty reliable for a little while longer?

    Edit: And about the supercharger i got the three bolts out (actually one was already out.. thats the dealers handy work for ya) and it is stuck! Ill try to get some pictures soon

    I also had an electrical problem, i have never opened the fuse box but i was in for a surprise! Way to go again dealer but a 3 amp fuse instead of a 1 amp for the information center and mess up the gasket so it lets water in so when i pull the fuse out it breaks leaving a piece in it its like they dont care...
