Replacing super charger pulley
Hey guys gotta question. I know it's a while away but I gotta save up for it I need to know how much I'll need. This winter I'd like to replace the supercharger pulley wheel on my 250x. While I'm into it should I replace anything else. The whole assembly cost a couple hundred bucks. The problem I have and asked about earlier is the pulley got rusty and chews at my belt. I have put a layer of paint also a rust inhibitor on it. It has helped. Yes I use to keep the damn cover on. Not no more. This is the only rusty part in the engine bay. The oil in super charger is clear and seems to be running great. I have 215 hours on her currently.

If you buy oem it's sold as a kit with the dampener and cost well over 500$. I'd also check and of replace tensioner bearing

Change the coupler as well. I put a R&D OEN size supercharger wheel / Tensioner and a ADA coupler. Has made a big difference. And I find that my 260x goes harder.

I put OEM size Rogue racing pulleys on mine (main and idler), and 3 years later they are like new.

Nah sorry how do you think it flows better lol the pulley is a pulley thats all it is. If its the same od of the oem it aint going to produce anymore air or power. It may look nice and smooth but thats about it.

Any issues changing them out? Main pulleys not coming off easy? Bolts snapping? Looks like in a perfect world it's maybe a 1 hour job

As far as the coupler goes, I made the mistake of trying to take it off while the engine was still in. I ended up taking the engine out. I couldn't get it off. Even heating it up. Cut it off in the end.
