To do or not to do? Supercharger rebuild on 2010 RXTX
I have 85 hours on my 2010 RXTX 260. I will pass the 100 hour mark in no time. My dealer quoted me $800 to rebuild the supercharger (required at 100 hours). I am scratching my balls at this point.....
I like the ski when it runs properly. I've had a few minor issues with this ski over the years and my dealer is 90 miles away. I'm seriously thinking about trading or selling this ski. Or do I bite the bullet and pay the $800 and hope I don't have to drag this damn thing to the dealer another 3 times this summer???
If I trade for new it will cost me 5k-6k. If I sell it outright I will still have to come up with several thousand to replace it.
Any thoughts fellas???????

My SCer just let go at 65 hours. All original. So IMO I would atleast inspect it.

Send it to Jerry to have it rebuilt using this thread. Save you a bunch of money and it's so easy even I can do it.

Dude, pull the SC(three bolts) and send it to Jerry. You'll only spend almost half that. Rebuild kit +$75. He just did mine last month and had him drop a wheel in too.

Send it to Jerry.. Does great quality work and he's quick about rebuilding the SC and mails it back 1 to 2 days after receiving the SC. He just did mine

pulling a charger is just a little more complicated then changing a flat on a rental car.
the how to here is good..and no worries using jerry to do the rebuild
take lots of pictures and notes and save yourself a few hundred bucks.
the rebuild kit is around $350 ( that's everything, including bearings, seals and clamps )
you may need some specialty tools ( a tile nipper can be used to reattach the otiker clamp on the charger hose, one is included with the kit)
according to Seadoo, with the newest rebuild kits you can extend to 200 hours
( I'd go 150 if your wfo and in the air a lot)
