    I think I blew my motor on my 06 RXP???

    Was out riding yesterday with a few others (4 of us total riding in a group)...... we were cruising between 50ish and making occasional full throttle blasts. I noticed what sounded like a whine/whistle similar to how the supercharger sounds but slightly louder. After about 30 seconds of me actually figuring out that is was getting louder the ski hesitated and then just nosed over and died out. When I went to attempt to restart it...... It sounds like a bunch of bolts rattling around in a cofee can. I pulled all three plugs and there is no damage or indication of leaning out. I do have metal washers installed (that is the only modification). The ski has 72 hours on it and luckily is still covered by the B.E.S.T. warranty for another 2 year. Just wondering if anyone here has experienced a similar situation and how long Im looking at being down for.

    Thanks in advance

    Mike

    Im not sure but it sound like maybe your sc bearings have failed if you remove the intake hose on the sc look to see is you sc wheel has ground out on the housing. If there is damage then this is probably the problem. My m8 had his go on him. Different circumstances as he was just cruising out of a no wake. I would have sed it was ur washers but you have metals so these should not be causing you any probs. Hope this helps R88

    i vote SC bearings also to start...

    unfortunately... if it locked up and broke the shaft or gear you may be looking at a new set over overdrive gears, a new magneto, a new PTO cover, and a few other things...

    pull the SC out, see how bad it is

    Broke about 1-2 miles south of the Oar so it was still a long tow..... over an hour. Ran into Bruce and he along with the others who posted above think it may very well be the SC bearings. Hopefully I can drop it off at RJ's today and have it back in the next 2 weeks. I still have my RXT to ride so all is not lost. Im sure I will see you out next weekend. Glad to hear your other ski isnt messed up too bad.

    Thumbs up UPDATE

    Just got a call from the tech...... one of the SC bearings let go which caused the shaft to shift sideways and destroy the gear(s) that drive the SC. He said nothing went into the engine intake and that he had the engine running without the SC and its perfectly fine. B.E.S.T. is covering everything and from the sound of things I should have it back early next week.
