    SC question to dealer

    So I called my dealer thinking I would get the slip moment on my SC checked and if it was slipping I would get some new washers under warranty. (then wait for Jerry's to come out)

    Here is how the call went
    Kinchyle: I was wondering if it was possible for me to bring in my supercharger to have the slip moment tested. I can go ahead and bring in the SC if that is ok. With the season starting I just want to make sure I'm ok.
    Dealer: Are you having problems ? What model is it ?
    Kinchyle: No problems just would like to make sure. It is a 05 RXT. I was also wondering if it was possible I could purchase the 2006 oem upgrade.
    Dealer: If you aren't having problems I wouldn't waste the money. You would know if your SC is slipping. You would loose 10-15 mph. The 2005 model was already changed for the updated clutch.
    Kinchyle: ok thanks

    I guess my dealers aren't so knowledgable... or is it just me.

    Should I have them check the clutch slippage. How much do you think they would charge ? Isn't it just putting on a torque wrench ?

    see if Jerry will do it for ya. Throw a couple bucks his way and send it to him.

    My dealer is much the same. I just want to bang my head against the wall when talking to them

    bang your head against the wall? why would anyone do that?

    If you feel you're capable of doing it, you can buy a good inch pound torque wrench and check it yourself for about what the dealer would charge you to check it.

    Just wait until the metal washers are available and replace them then.

    Well we went thru the same stuff kinda with our 03 limited's but we had the letter come down from sea-doo on ours. If it is still under warranty like the others said need to fib a little bit and tell them you are losing rpm's or not maintaining your top end speed. Good Luck HA HA HA
