2010 RXTX 260 only runs 45 mph
2010 RXTX 260 (bone stock) 58 hours.
After a hard take off I heard something like a hose blew off and the whine of the supercharger got a little louder. The ski now only runs 45 mph max and 20 mph max on the learning key. I'm no mechanic but I did check hoses that I could see and looks normal. Is there a hose way down under I should look for? What else could cause the power and speed loss?
Any directions or pics would be very helpful.

Hoses between supercharger, itnercooler and trottlebody. If hoses are ok, do not run it before supercharger is checked.

S/C hose came off. Clean w/ Windex and replace the stock clamp with an AWAB clamp. Clamp is thin / fits well, teeth are not cut all the way through the clamp so it will not tear up the S/C hose and and you can torque to a much higher value without distortion. Replace all my clamps with these and no failures in 100 hours.

Dealer checked and it was the supercharger hose (large hose). I was 15 miles from home when this blew off so I had to run it with the hose disconnected. Will this hurt anything?
I rode the ski 50 miles after the hose was back on and it ran perfect!

No you didn't hurt anything.
When the hose came off the ski was running with no boost and 45 mph is tops without boost.
Keep riding and enjoy..
