09 rxpx blown supercharger help
i have an 09 rxpx with 54 hours. Today i was out and the ski went from 8000rpm down to 6000 at wot.. turned the ski off as soon as it happened. Got towed back to the ramp took it to my house and i can spin the supercharger by hand so its blown. My question is do i have to pull the motor and check these screens that ive read about?? i need to go get a 1/4 box end wrench to finish pulling the charger but is there a way that i can make sure all the pieces are there with out doing this?? Thanks mikefresh

Not good news i know.....but if you find a washer gone, then this is what youre going to have to do unfortunately.

Danmm.. defff not what I wanted to hear. Thanks for the quick reply . Do the washers ever crack and stay in place?

The 09 x model washers are not suppose to break..
I don't think you broke a metal washer.
The older ceramics break. 2007 and older

Only way to tell is to yank the charger.
I'm not sure of the # of washers on the charger.
Do a search on here and I'm sure you will find pics and your answer.

Pull the charger ... the washers dont break like the old ones....

You probably burnt the clutch washers.
When you rebuild have it completely rebuilt with new washers and bearings!!!
A bearing failure on a s/c can easily do 2k+ in damages to your ski.
Better safe than very sorry...
