    gtx ltd issue that needs resolvin

    Story for those that care,

    Bought sea-doo, rode for 26hrs, blown supercharger due to extreme riding.

    Replaced at dealer then it sat with a full tank of gas for over a year. Then I went back out, topped off the gas some more.. started up rode great 8000rpms. Drove for about half a tank then it started at WOT going to 0rpms for about a second then back up. After 2 times I notice the rpms only going to 6900 with top speed of 60. Then gradually rpms went down to about 6500, but I got home. Occasional 0rpm at wot all the way back. I was like great blown super charger need to do those damn washers. Went to put it on the trailer... driving to launch. It was doing 8000rpm 70mph. So I rode it around some more.. no problems.. Still at about half tank. Topped off shell premium went out again. Rode great until about a half tank.. same story as above. The whole first half of the tank I am pretty much WOT because we have a lot of glass around here.

    Any ideas? I have a mechanic and I really don't want to bring it to the shop because of the hasle of not having a truck.

    Did the SC get fixed by dealer with ceramics?

    As far as I know the supercharger was fixed with the normal washers. I guess this means ceramics.

    Any other ideas? Anyone seen this type of issue before? Works fine for about an hour of wot then intermitant 0rpm at wot? So far I guess I'll empty the gas tank and try fresh fuel.. Does this mean I have to take apart the glove box? I tried a hose down where I put gas in, but it didn't get to the bottom of the tank.

    Remove the access panel in the hood compartment the remove the rubber filler hose from fuel tank. You can get all but about 1/2 gallon. Fill with quality fuel and replace the plugs. I bet they are shot. Bad cause will cause intermittent problems. I chased a bad fuel problem for 3 days last year and it took a full tank of quality fuel to clear it up.
