    Just got an 05 RXT

    Hey everyone,

    I just picked up an 05 RXT with 48 hours in near perfect shape. I used to have an 05 a couple years back and it was great, and under warranty. This one isn't so i was wondering anything I should do to insure the life of the 05? I was reading about the sc and the dealer told me every 100 hours they fit a new one on the machine for 500 bucks. Is that right? It seems like people have had failures before 100 hours though.. Thanks!

    Welcome to GH
    Yes, the 05 needs updates
    It was one of the last years brp used ceramic washers in the superchargers
    and they are known to break and cause complete motor failures
    you dont need a new SC just a rebuild with good parts asap

    I asked about the ceramic washers and they told they had a recall and something was upgraded. Can you point me where i need to go to get the rebuild parts?

    Clean looking ski!

    Take a look at the following thread regarding supercharger rebuild. If the SC has ceramic washers you'll want to have Jerry rebuild your SC (the new SC rebuild kits include metal washers). And your dealer is correct, SC needs to be rebuilt every 100 hours.

    I have to call the dealer tmrw and ask him what he meant about the recall that was done. When I asked about the sc he jumped on telling me about the recall and that it is good until 100 hours and what they do for servicing them. It was such a fast process, they had this 05, an 08 rxp and a 04 rxp in stock. I beat them up a little on the RXT took a few minutes to think about it, out of no where some guy and his son were there looking at it so I pulled the trigger. They ended up buying the 08 and the 04 sold an hour later.

    As for pictures they are coming, that was the one from when I saw it at the dealer. They just took it in on trade the day before and didn't even wash it yet. I have it in the garage detailing, conditioning the seat, taking off the ugly numbers etc

    If they just took it in on trade they don't know if the washers were changed in the s/c.
    U need to pull it and check for your self.
    If they have not been changed its a ticking time bomb.
    Tick tick boom..
