    2004 RXP supercharger blown

    I have a 04 RXP with 72 original hours on it. I was out yesterday for about 5 minutes and it was only reaching about 58mph. Then as I was riding back into shore it started losing speed and the engine started sounding like it was a 2 stroke almost.There was like a crunching kind of noise. I shut it off right away and got towed back to shore. Also the other day it came up on the screen as overheating and I stopped and let it sit. Then it was fine.So I think just the supercharger is blown but I don't know.Any help or ideas on what had happened would be great.

    Yikes pull the charger and don't run it anymore. Could have had a valve break, first thing pills blower and go from there

    Do you think it will be a real expensive fix at the dealership? More than just rebuilding the supercharger?

    Dealer would probably push for a new motor if its jacked up badly. I don't trust dealerships so is find someone close

    An 04 with ceramics? Yikes.
    I sincerely hope it didn't eat the washers.
    Pull the engine and pray.
    Good luck.

    Crunching noise is no bueno. Ceramic washers are THE weak spot on our older RXPs. I hope that's not what happened to you - those washers fragment and end up in the motor, and make things ugly fast.

    My question is what makes you believe it is the Scer??You stated it overheated the prior week,have you checked youe exhaust system??Make sure nothing has melted or blown out???IF you think its your Scer then pull the front hose off of it,take your finger and see if you can spin the fan by hand..if so then your clutches are gone,if not then pull the charger and inspect the bearings,your Scer is in need of an updated rebuild BUT make sure your exhaust is ok too...a blown exhaust will cost you power and make all kinds of noise also,ask me how i know....

    Here at the hulk we call it the "Stealership"... for a lot of good reasons usually.
