Supercharger Rebuild Options
So my 2004 RXP has 80hrs on it, so before those ceramics decide to puke into my engine I am going to have the supercharger rebuilt. It seems like I have a few options to choose from. My dealer says they will install a completely brand new charger for 1400$. I can have it rebuilt for 360$ then whatever shipping costs me. I can also do an exchange on a new one for my charger+400$ for a rebuilt one. How hard is it to remove the supercharger and install it? The whole "Moving the exhaust" thing, makes me just want to pay the dealer to take it out and install and I will send it off to someone to have it rebuilt. I'm trying to save as much as possible as there are other things I want done to the ski.

It would cost about 400$ for the dealer to install the new charger and take out the old one. Is this reasonable?

Here's your best option!
Also in the above link is a link to a "how to" on how to remove your supercharger and send it to me for rebuild.

$400 for an hour worth of time?

The only thing holding me back from sending it you is that the shipping would cost a small fortune. I might just try taking it out myself. I guess if I can change the mid shaft on my old GP1200R I can do this too eh?

if you have basic skills with tools, removing the SC is not too bad. You will need to take your time the first time, but after that, it is a sinch. You will be able to remove and install it wih your eyes closed. The how-to jerry listed will take you through it step by step.

Okay, my uncle's a mechanic and maybe he can spare a day and help me remove it. Then I can send it off to be rebuilt.

Its simple to do.....and for all the MODS you plan to do, NOW IS THE TIME TO LEARN TO WRENCH on it.....because paying someone to do simple things that you can do yourself, thats what costs so much.
Learn to do it yourself, you will learn your machine. It helps you identify issues, fix problems when they happen, and it helps you contribute more to this forum down the road. Lots of people on this forum have been in your position, a newbie to PWC. They dove in, learned, gained knowledge, and are now giving back....
Research, ask questions, post pictures.....NO ONE will turn you down, everyone here will give you the advice you need....just need to ask.
It takes more time to get that rear torx bolt out of the SC than it does to do the rest of the job of removal....I can have a SC out (with the proper rear bolt in place) in under 10 minutes, and that includes moving the exhaust back 3 inches...

Ive heard of quotes for $1000 bucks down here..omg
You dont have much room in a RXP to remove the charger.
Once you get the special tools to rebuild the SC, and do at least one yourself, you find that its not that bad. I believe in self reliance lol
