    Exclamation Check a VIN for warranty work

    Hey, can anyone check SeaDoo VIN numbers to see if they have had warranty work done on them. About to close on an '07 RXP, its only got 1 hour on it but want to verify the washers haven't blown if possible.

    Thanks!!

    I would suggest that you either pull the supercharger yourself or have a qualified dealer pull it. Either way don't put it on the water without metal washers. I just called my dealer and the engine that he rebuilt at 40 hours is down again. It now has 42 hours. The first set of washers went at 6 hours or something like that. I am not trying to tell you don't do it but I would look before you leep.

    I am definetely going to change them out asap! Actually plan to do it Saturday morning when I get it. Hopefully I can get it down to Jerry in time for me to ride next weekend.

    I was just trying to see if anyone could check if the washers have blown on this ski before..
    I don't think I will be able to determine that before I purchase the ski. It would suck to by one that has already had the engine trashed.

    Do yourself a favor. Pull the intake tube off the supercharger and see if you can spin the blades. If the blades spin the washers are gone.

    clamp is usually just a screw type, need a flat head screwdriver.
    look around the rear engine compartment, see if it looks like things have been removed/replaced. major telltale would be clamps on the SC to TB hoses.
    i think stock they are oetiker type, not screw type clamps, if its screw type the SC has been removed/reinstalled.
    anyone else agree, on my clamp idea???
