    rxp-x new noise...Help!!

    i have 5 whole hours on my rxpx and as we took off from the dock and once warmed up and on the gas i noticed like a siren noise/supercharger hiss/whine????? can't figure it out?? Has ANYBODY had this problem?? tried chopping the throttle under good speed and it ascended in rpm and whine but not a dead stop?? can anybody comment??.....i also rode around with the seat back and tried to confirm where this noise is comming from....sounds like the carrier bearing or the supercharger?????

    i noticed that at one point myself... around like 3 hours... but i haven't noticed it since... i'm guessing your fine man... it's been running fine... well i have put the exhaust kit on since then also... so maybe i'm just not noticing it either... lol

    Are your rpms normal or does ski still feel like it has full power? My IC hose popped off and the SC sound became alot louder, but there was a clear difference in power.

    pull the elbow off your supercharger to the intercooler....look for gray dust...if there is dust the blades are hitting the housing and grinding down....you will get a really loud whine....if thats the case take it to the dealership for warranty.....ive seen it twice before
