    Question regarding 2008 Ultra 250

    I am looking at online classified ad for a used 250x. It states "Supercharger needs to be replaced due to being dried out not from abuse." Anyone know what this guy mean by this ? My guess is the SC ran without any oil and ceased, or the SC ceased and broke apart and trashed the engine. I am awaiting an answer from him on it but thought I would post here. Thanks

    That's very vague so it could be any number of things.
    Also, they didn't make the 250x till 2007.

    Yes very. Also my 07 has been great but I'd be worried about that. Do urself a favors and look into new engines and don't ride a 300 first lol. Unless we are in the ocean at WOT he pulls on me every which way and I have r/stage 1 with some extras as well

    I made a typo. It is a 2008 bought in 2009 as a leftover.

    Little better. Still find out what it'll cost to fix. That might be a nice down payment

    it dried out because it was abused, i would steer clear who knows what other maintenance he didnt perform, it will cost you in excess of 2k to replace.
