SuperCharger Rebuild - Did I just blow $600 for Nothin??
So - at 99 hours I decided to be proactive and get my SC rebuilt at my local dealer here in Canada.
I bit the bullet and the boat is back in my garage - haven't taken her out yet...
Anyway - that aside, it was't that bad price wise - $600 CDN taxes in including parts and labour.
So....I asked for all the parts back after the job was done. (See attached photos).
Apparently, my supercharger was in great shape.
Funny: I have a 2008 speedster 150 and these washers look metal to me - not ceramic. I asked the dealer if they were ceramic and he was "pretty sure they were". Damn!
Your thoughts? Did I just blow $600 for nothin?
These parts look near pristine to me. And what the heck are all those pins for?

Still due for a rebuild. I see the old needle bearings...where's the old ball bearings and cages? Of course...you coulda saved some money, peace of mind...and just sent it to Jerry.

You needed a rebuild. The fact that the parts still look good is good though. Could indicate your ski is running good etc. Jerry does it cheaper but shipping may coast lots from where u are to the states??

yup..those sure look pristine..
right up to the second where they destroy your motor and leave you stranded on the water in the path of an approaching thunderstorm
$600 well spent if you ask me. $6 an operating hour is nothing at all. And I read somewhere that the service interval with the newest s/c service parts is now 200 hours
money well spent..now you can go thrash your boat with confidence!

Those are ceramics. The other is stuck to the gear. Money well spent.

Dealership / stealership probably gave you somebody else's used parts.
Sorry I just don't trust them...
I've seen people pay over $1000 for supposed problems.
When in reality all the stealership did was change the oil and spark plugs.
Hope your stealership is honest....
If there is such a thing......
