    Buy a wetsuit (NY) , check the carbon seal, wear ring, compression and oil (quality and levels) but I am assuming you probably did that before you bought it. Other than that, ride the heck out of it.

    Pics or it didn't happen.

    Rebuild the entire supercharger. Washers and bearings.
    If the bearings go it can do thousands in damage.

    Make sure the ceramic washers didn't already break.
    If they did its a couple grand to clean out and repair.
    If they are still there then don't ride it other than checking it out.
    It's not pretty when they break.

    Didn't your grandmother always tell you that "An ounce pf prevention is worth a pound of cure."

    For me now, buying a S/C'd Seadoo without changing bearings and washers would be like buying a vehicle and not changing all the fluids. It's peace of mind, knowing it is all fresh. Washers may be metal but that doesn't mean the bearings are fresh because you don't have to get anywhere near the bearings to change the washers. It could cost you an engine if they weren't changed and it spits them.

    It's THE most redundant statement I have found on this forum since joining.

    Rebuild the entire unit if you want 100% peace of mind.

    YES...
    the bearings keep the s/c shaft from wobbling around.
    When the bearings go it ain't pretty...
    Always have a complete rebuild on a s/c.
    If the bearings go in the s/c I've heard it can waist the motor.
    Ive personally seen it waist a flywheel, charger cases, charger gear, etc...

    Like I said it ain't pretty..
