NO BOOST! help...
Hey everyone, so today was my first day in the water after my winter build. Riva B1 wheel, Dampener gear, Power Cooler with HKS Bov, R2 re flash. I did all the work my self and being a type A i really took my time to followed all directions to the T.
In the water, does not matter what throttle position, (max RPM was 7500) boost gauge was always reading variable vacuum at idle and 0psi under load.
Checked all the boost hoses, clamps and lines but to no avail. Took the intake off to see the wheel, no problem, one way ONLY rotation without any slack at all, no shaft play, no rubbing. Started it up, using a mirror i can see the wheel turning without any problems, idles well. Under throttle blips no BOV venting at all. Took off the post IC silicone hose to throttle body, gave it some gas,.. nothing. Like the SC is not compressing anything at all.
What should i check/do next?
As always, thanks for your time and attention.

ok if there was a big leak the engine would not go past 5000 rpms same as if the SC clutch is gone, it happened to me once, I lost the J pipe clamp ( it wasnt that tight) and RPMs dropped to 5k immediately. I wish I could you help you more how about if the gauge is not reading right?? is that possible?? in generel, how does the ski run??

Has anyone had a BAD sc wheel? I followed Rivas instructions methodically.. Will call them tomorrow.

by the way. same thing is happening with my friends FZR BUT there is 1 difference, his engine doesnt go past 5k rpms so after talking to the guys here,we all agree it must be the clutch has gone. I havent changed it yet but I will in the next 2 or 3 days, and FYI on the trailer it would go all the way till 7500 rpms but in the water nomore than 5k rpms and his wheel is spinning as well.... do you get my idea?

take the hose off the top of the supercharger should be a bunch of air at 5000 rpm. If not wheel must not be turning much

Could the impeller housing be leaking??? only had mine apart once and that was over 2 years ago. Cant remember if it is an o ring if you needed to put some sealant on there. Ski |shouldnt" hit 7500rpm AND have 0psi of boost(unless you have a really beat up or under pitched prop) . Boost should start around 5500-6000 IIRC. Check you boost gauge lines if you have an analog gauge. Or for leaks around a digital sender if thats what you have. Would make sense to loose boost there and get weird readings at your gauge.
