Doe Seadoo Superchargers have "Pulleys"?
Im a car guy and have an addiction to superchargers and that intoxicating whine you hear at higher RPMs
Since im picking up a GTR215 next week im trying to learn as much as i can about it. Doing some googling it looks like the supercharger doesnt have a pulley like a traditional blower. Does that mean it spins directly off the crank shaft?
I have only ever riden my uncles 215 and rxp 260 for a brief time and never at WOT out of respect for his skis. Can you hear the whine at higher RPMs? if not will an intake amplify the sound?
Even if it doesnt would you recommend a CAI? my cars with blowers have always benefited from CAI for obvious reasons!
Thanks guys! cannot wait to get her out on the water

its a centrifugal Supercharger. and you will definitely hear the blower they arent too loud on the 215's but if you run an intake and maybe a lil more boost youll get a nice whine out of it not much though. Whichever mod you do first im pretty sure will give you the mod-bug so youll be sicker than a dog orderin parts for it soon enough!

Supercharged skis were made to run wot all day long.
Out of respect for the ski gag it and don't let up....
