Rough day at the lake
Towed a boat and two skis to the dock, watched two guys moving about 50 wipeout on a ski so I picked one up to get him out of the boat traffic and he looked pretty rough so hopefully he's fine, dropped a phone in the water, watched my rpm's drop to 5800 and no power, had a trailer light out so I got pulled over coming home and tomorrow it's back to work.
I'm hoping the rpm drop is just a vaccum issue. I checked the SC wheel and could only spin it one way (If I tried hard enough it would move a bit the other way). Should there be absoloutly no movement regardless of how hard you try to spin it if the clutch is still good? There is no free play both ways so I'm assuming it's ok.
When it happened I opend up the throttle a couple of times to see how my RPM's were and it was usually in the 5800 range. I hit some wake and then went up to 6100 so I though maybe something was loose causing a leak. I havent found anything yet but I'm not sure about that j pipe going from the IC to the throttle body, it's kind of hard to check with any certainty, atleast short of reseating it to make sure it's on there.
Guess I'll go dig around some more and see what I can find. Found the phone too and suprisingly it works after about an hour in the water..

Wow what a day! Hopefully the ski is something minor.

the supercharger wheel should not move in the lock direction at all, if it slips or rotates any in the lock direction it is Bad> Tommy Jordan

Yeah I just checked the SC again from a better angle and it spins both ways, just couldnt get enough of a grip from my original angle. I guess I'm upgrading sooner than I hoped..

if you can afford it get the 2011 and the riva gear dampener at the same time it would be a very wise investment.

Fix the clutch yet?

I took it to the dealer so they can fix it under warranty and they're pretty busy so they wont get around to it until monday. I figure after I get it back I'll upgrade some stuff in hopes of limiting the issues. Next time I'm on my own with this one since my warranty will be up, it happened at just the right time I guess. I thought originally that my warranty was up but I have it for a wee bit longer so thats good.
