    Shredding the lake & Supercharger

    You guys that are shredding the lake every weekend . How many hrs are you running before you check the supercharger for Perfect Performance. 50-100 hrs maybe be good for you sisters ski? But not a ski that is on the rev limiter all day.

    You shouldn't ride on the limiter...100 hrs and the bearings are usually ready.

    I check the slip every 25 hrs and completely rebuild every 2 yrs or 60-75 hrs.
    I know some people run longer but I've seen a few grenades and I consider it cheap insurance.

    Over 250hrs on her and she's stil rippen 8k++ every ride.

    I just had mine rebuilt at 165 hours (prior owner did not do maintenance) and one of the bearings was already bad, lots of scoring in the race, probably very close to letting go and doing some damage.

    Wotxxxsd, do you remove the charger every time you check the slip? Is there an easier way to do it? I'm at 45 hours, and everything is functioning as it should, but I would like to check mine.

    use old school inch-pound torque wrench, the kind with the long pointer
    put it on the SC wheel nut and tighten it
    watch the pointer, when you feel it slip note the number
    do it a few times until your sure about the number

    According to the shop manual a dial torque wrench should be used to check slip. Example:

    Slip can be checked with the supercharger still on the engine or in a vise.

    The SC impeller nut is left hand thread so wouldn't you want to turn counter clockwise?
