Supercharger Reduild and more
Hello ... Is $450 a good price to pay for complete service to include parts and labor.. Supercharge rebuild, oil change, plugs changed, winterization, Full Service.. I live in Northern Virginia? Thanks

Is that a full rebuild on the s/c. Bearings and washers?
I always suggest to doo both because bearing failure usually does 2k+ in damages.
If it is then yes that's a good price.

I'd wait to change the plugs till after the 1st tank of fuel on next season. Or swap the old plugs back in for the 1st tank then put the new plugs.

Make sure its a genuine rebuild kit, seems cheap seeing as the kit itself is $350.

I kinda doubt you are going to get what you pay for. an OEM charger kit is well over $300, jerry charges $75 JUST for the labor when the charger lands at his door.
I'd be insisting on references on this if I was you, and also proof of liability insurance if it isn't some guy working out of his home.
Call anybody else to get a quote. I can almost guarantee it will be $200-$400 more then this quote.
I quote $700 JUST for a charger rebuild ( with an OEM kit-charger by jerry) I do the remove/install and wrangle the charger shipping.
Last season one guy companied about the price, so I have him a better price if he just brought the charger in.
Well his "buddy" who was an "expert" boat mechanic couldn't get the charger off and in the process stripped ALL of the torx bolts
I did find 3 1/4 inch drive 8mm sockets in the bilge..so I guess his expert didn't have the right wrenches to get the job done.
He really didn't like the price, but two other shops he took it to in order get the bolts out wanted even more then I did and I charge lots to remove bolts buggered by shade tree experts.
At this time of year you should also be seeing a reduced labor rate.
My guess is their idea of a rebuild is washers only.
As stated by the others. Bearings are a MUST...and in my view a Seadoo OEM kit is a MUST.

Seems a bit low I payed almost $320 for the rebuild kit alone. You get what you pay for. OEM is always the safest bet when it could end up being the difference of an engine. Just my thought

+1 get references and talk to people who've used him before. Price doesn't reflect quality work or quality parts.
No Dooing the job right could cost you a motor 4k+

Thank you all for the input. He is a See Doo mechanic who works with a friend of mine who is a motorcycle mechanic in the same shop / dealership. He is doing it as a side job and my friend is getting employee pricing on OEM parts. I hope this all works out as I see it is great pricing. Thanks again everyone...
