    What were your max rpms? You may have lost the supercharger.. Take the intake hose off and try to spin the supercharger by hand.. If its tight your good if not and its loose then the sc is toast..
    When's the last time you checked impeller and wear ring? Spark plugs?

    i cant remeber exact but i believe 5500 rpms at 54 mph. ill try to take off intake hose soon as i get a chance. what do you mean its toast?? that i have to get a rebuild kit?? i never checked the impeller or wear ring. all do that also. i did a tune up on them 2 years ago on the 10hr mark as it recommended. thanks mattydipps

    08 did not have ceramics BUT you could have lost a washer or bearing...take the hose off the front of the Scer and see if you can spin the fan by hand with ease...

    I change my plugs once a year.. If you can spin your supercharger by hand it's likely the supercharger let go and dropped all the guts of the supercharger into your motor..

    By the rpms.. I would say your supercharger maybbe very loose when you test it

    Hopefully it's just slipping but sounds like you might be pulling your engine. I just recently did this at 9 hours total

    Where are you located? I'd find someone in your area if the SC took a dump vs taking it to a stealership

    Cool

    The 1st half of the 08 supercharged skis had ceramic washers.. none of the x models did.
    Seadoo used up what they had in stock then went with metal washers..
    I've seen a 08 rxt with failed ceramics..

    That's good to know....from the information I had received,and from what I have been told,08s went to the gold washers and the overflow ceramics went into all the sport boats SCers....Out of all the SCers over done I have yet to run across an 08 with ceramics....
