    2005 GTX SC. Supercharger not engaging???

    I have a 2005 GTX SC with about 115 hours. Supercharger was recently rebuilt with the steel washers. Two problems are present:

    (1) when the ski is running the supercharger doesn't kick in. The engine RPMs only reach about 5,000. Sometimes the supercharger will kick on for a short while but it will drop back out again in no time. I took the supercharger out and checked it and it looks fine. It is still in tact and bearings appear to be fine.

    (2) Now the ski is starting to click when I hit the start button. This is not the single click that happens when the solenoid is out (I already replaced that). This is a continuous, "click, click, click...." when I hold down the starter button.

    I am not sure if these two problems are related or not. Does anyone know what's going on?

    Also, I forgot to mention that the machine is not throwing any error codes.

    The charger doesn't kick in, it's directly driven from the crank. If you pulled it, what was your slip? It may have been set incorrectly.
    Pop off the intake tube and try to spin the charger wheel with your fingers. If it turns, your slip is waaaay to low.
    The 'clickclickclick' may be your battery.
    Good luck!

    I did try that. With the intake tube off I tried turning the supercharger. I could turn it maybe a 1/4 turn before it stopped. Is this my problem? If so, how to correct? Are you saying that I installed the supercharger incorrectly?

    might try and share a little more background to help us help you.

    did it run good the last time out? what all happened that made you rebuild the charger?

    Fresh gas and plugs?

    ect......

    The continuous clicking sounds like your battery is low on juice.

    Was the SC rebuilt with a COMPLETE SC rebuild kit or only changing out the ceramic washers?

    Who worked on the SC and set the slip?

    Turning the SC 1/4 turn is not good, slip is way too low.

    DId you have the washers changed out due to a prior SC failure?

    If you sent the SC to Jerry for a complete rebuild you did good (1st sticky in this section), if not .......well there may be your problem.

    You also need a new battery.

    You have a serious issue, that needs to be resolved before you run this ski anymore!

    We need more info to help you!

    Yes, brand new gas and plugs. I sent the supercharger to Jerry for rebuild (isn't he the one in Berwick, Louisiana?). If the slip is set incorrectly do I need to send it back to him?????
