    Welcome to the forum. The first thing to do is to change the ceramic washers to metal washers. While you're at it the ceramic bearings are also a good upgrade, but some stick with OEM bearings. The bearings are normally good for 100 hours.... Ron

    new ski's

    The stock ceramic washers can heat up and shatter and cause serious damage to your engine. Metal washers can be purchased through the forum's store (on the left..top of bar under "links". Go to seadoo and then to SC parts.

    You can remove your supercharger and send it to Jerry (greenhulk) for a very fair price and the turnaround time is excellent!!!

    Your dealer may possibly do this for you as well.

    Another good thing to do is upgrade the zipties on the bailer tubes to small hose clamps as those things are very weak and can cause leaks.

    The bailer tubes are the two hoses in the rear of the ski by the VTS motor.

    Good luck and welcome to the forum. Make sure to buy all of your parts through the online store. There is a discount on Riva and R&D products of 10%. Coupon code is "greenhulk"
