cavitation??? help !!
hey, i took my ski out today and i think what i experienced was "cavitation". I just got it back after supercharger bearing failure, all repaired and replaced by the dealer.. and i noticed 2 things.. 1) if i accelerate more than half throttle from a stop or give it more at slow speeds i get the feeling hat its "wheels spinning", and 2) it had about 15L of water in it after i rode it and it was a very dry ride.. usually there is like 100mL of water coming out of the bungs and i have never had more than that.. are they related??? it never used to be like this..
please help, this thing has been alot of trouble to me latly

Sounds like your carbon seal may be leaking, or you could have bad engine mounts, causing it to leak.

sorry for the double post.. just ignore the last one,
im pretty convinced its engine allignment (after doing some searches) as it was taken out just last week.. all i need to know is that would it damage anything if i continue to run it? 7 more hours and it goes back to the dealer (far away), i dont want to be making the trip twice

What about your pump assembly,does the impeller have any play in it inside the wear ring.My 04 RXP had this problem at 165 hours.
