    My supercharger pics at 110 hours

    Before I did the stage II I figured I would pull the superchrager and see what is up. What does everyone think? Should I put it back in or have the dealer upgrade me to the 2006 shaft and clutches? This is a 2005 RXP

    Tell your dealer you lost power and can only turn 6400 RPM's. Tell him you checked the slip moment and it was only 4 ft. lb.s

    Let him get you a new 06 spec kit under warranty.

    You gotta check the slip moment, that's the only real test...

    a picture like that doesn't tell us much..... it tells us the ceramics are still there, and that's ALWAYS a good thing!! \/

    you could try what jerry said. if it works, AWESOME!

    some stealerships are gonna be like OH, so now ur a seadoo mechanic and pull your own supercharger and play with it and check torque specs? that COULD screw you over depending on the dealer because they'll lay the blame on you tampering with it and they'll call BRP claims and say the customer came in and said his torque specs are low, then they put it on ur unit record and deny supercharger work no matter where u go.


    i'd check slip moment urself. if it fails, take it in and say u lost power and read online that the supercharger probably needs a rebuild..... if it's well within torque specs, leave it be for a little. now if it's not failing but very close and low in specs, then post back and we'll do some more brainstorming on the best approach to this matter

    I would have no problem checking the supercharger slip, and if there is a problem taking care of it for you, from the pics thier is not much to tell you would have to disassemble the clutch unit and check the washers and gear. I am located in Millsboro, De, just ask for Bill www.WMFwatercraft.com

    I have not checked the slip yet. what is the best way to do that with the sc out of the ski? I have the stand and the special wrench. I also have a torque wrench. Just not sure if I should be holding the nut on the end when I torque on the acorn or visa versa?

    Peter

    Thanks

    Wrap the gear in a rag and hold it in a vice.

    Put the torque wrench on the SC impeller nut and turn counter clockwise.

    Put the torque wrench socket on the nut that holds the impeller on, make sure the S/C'er gear cannot turn, and pull the torque wrench towards you.
