    Routine inspection found salty S/C

    Got working on my RXP last night as I noticed lower than usual RPM when I last rode it. 7950 vs 8090 and the boost was down to 7 vs 9 on my mechanical guage. With 60 hours on it at least 30 since I last checked out the S/C I figured it was a good time to inspect the S/C and leaks ect.
    I found loads of salt in the S/C intake and on the impeller.
    The pic is from someone else on this forum but the results were simular.
    Anyone else have this problem?

    nope...i kept the breather attached to the intake to avoid such a thing. do you have an intake?

    on another note, I would still like to add a fogging attachement, even though I think thats after teh SC'er.

    maybe a hole for you to fog the SC'er will solve your problem.

    Sean:

    You mightbe on to something here. It would be real easy to plumb in an inch of straight 4" just before the SC. Then drill and tap a hole, just big enough to get the tip of a spray nozzle into the tube. You would have a cap after your finished.

    At the end of the day, take the cap off, start the ski for about 10 seconds and spray fogging oil in and let it rattle around inside the SC housing. Stop the ski, replace the cap and your done.

    Us fresh water guys would not need this, but it might significantly help or eliminate this sort of thing from happening for the salt water skis.......

    The rear intake is the best of both worlds (if you're running one)! Best rpm gain & best at corroding your SC! Too much moisture gets in, wether it's splash getting in or just sucking in the droplets on the screen & grab handle area.

    Riva intercooler is leaking, I think I caught it early enough, checked the plugs and they were perfect. This thing is only 2 months old that sucks. Riva better give me a credit towardf my Ultra 250 parts. Talk about not salt water friendly. I would tell anyone riding in Salt water to avoid this intercooler. $900 down the drain, hopefully my engine did not drink to much.
