    Supercharger washer wear/slip

    hello all
    was riding my 2004 rxp last saturday up on the murray river. anyway was seeing around 8000rpm all good. came to a stop and went take off again and there was no boost to be found - 6150rpm so rode the ski back 2min drive and shut it down - just cruised it back didnt hang it at 6150rpm
    found that the supercharger wheel could be turned with my fingers - not good.
    the charger is a xcharger fitted with an et137 compressor wheel.
    the xcharger its self has around 60hrs on it and when the et137 wheel was fitted around 35hrs the charger had new bearings and a viton seal installed, the spring washers and clutch washers were reused.
    doesnt appear to be anything missing from the charger washers wise and im guessing they are the ome metal x charger washers. theres just not enough tension on them too keep the gear from spining.

    my question is what course of action should i seek, there was a small amount of metal - tiny metal particals in the filter - 6-8hrs old. not nothing major
    does the pto have to be pulled? or do i just get the charger sorted out? considering nothing has blown too bits i doubt much metal material has gone threw/anywhere in the motor

    any help would be great also what am i looking at parts wise? new washers and spring washers? whats the go?
    cheers tom

    btw it was 43 degs (109.4 degree Fahrenheit) where i was riding hence 8000rpm, iv also done the 08 oiler mod in the pto, new oil and filter was added around 8hrs ago.
    the days preceding this were spent in the sea with lots of chop/jumping un hooking and as such - hard on the washers.

    Sounds like your inner washer hat on the shaft possibly shifted. No need to clean out the engine, just fully rebuild that charger.

    Also an oil change could help just in case....you havent done one in sometime....maybe it will remove that small metal particles...
