    Supercharger Rebuild Update (100 to 200) hours

    I just bought a leftover 2011 RXT-260. One of the questions that came up was "Since the 2012 supercharger rebuild time has been increased from 100 to 200 hours is there any plan to make that retroactive to 2011 or earlier. The salesman didn't know but we went to the parts department and confirmed that the supercharger and rebuild kit have the same part numbers for 2011 and 2012 so they should have the same rebuild time frame. Next a trip to the service department. The service manager said you still need to do the rebuild at 100 hours on the 2011 but after the first rebuild, it would be 200 hours for each rebuild thereafter. I'm was still not convinced they were sure of what they were telling me.

    I contacted BRP and here is the response.

    Thank you for contacting BRP.

    In response to your request, we recently revised the recommended maintenance on the 2011-2012
    Sea-Doo supercharger. The new requirement is now 200 hours, irrespective of the number of years.

    Thank you for your time.

    It does look like the dealer sales and service departments are a little out of the loop. If you have a supercharged 2011 approaching 100 you may have just gotten a 100 hour reprieve. I would verify it with your local dealer to make sure you don't get stuck with any warranty issues. Hopefully they will put out an ECU update to increase the maintenance interval.

    SORRY ABOUT THIS POST. I JUST FOUND BOATADDICT'S POST FROM 3/12. HE ALREADY REPORTED IT.

    Yea, and lets not forget the ceramic washers that BRP installed in their SCs for years either. They jumped right out there and fixed this as soon as the first machines suffered failures also. Point is I wouldn't trust those guys for shit, dealers or BRP! A good rule to follow for stock machine with stock SC is check slip every 25 hrs, replace washers every 50 hrs, complete rebuild every 100 hrs reguardless of what they tell you. You have to ask yourself, are you gonna trust those guys to rebuild the engine properly under warranty when the SC lets go and sends crap all through the engine?

    I had my S/C rebuilt by the local dealer here and after 12 hours...and NOT hard running (unhooking)....BOOM !!! ( bearing let go...Touch Down!)..Took the S/C off and walked into the dealer with it....Their responce...."Too Bad..So Sad" .... As previous post by "dnielsen" states...trust....or lack there of... Won't see my feet enter their door any more..(told them that too!..)..I have had a couple people tell me I'm a bit picky when it comes to maintainance of my ski....well ...I do pull the SC out every 25 hours or so..and check slip etc..... ounce of prevention..... you know the rest.....

    I would request a copy of the bulletin if possible. As in automobiles and boats,the manufacturer is only as good as the dealer. You have good dealers who really appreciate your business and are willing to work with you and you have those that are real jerks. Sometimes you have to drive a little to find a good dealer but it could be worth it!!

    It sounds like these kits used different washers and bearings than the previous kits, Anyone know the specifics of them?

    I would like to see these 200 hour rebuild kits field proven before I would run 200 hours on them myself.

    The SC clutch takes on some serious strain from the jerky RPM's of a PWC so 100 hours is more than enough But let's see it field proven
