    SC shimming and rebuilds

    Many here have purchased new SC whether it be a rude, B-kit or C-kit.
    We pay good money for these little upgrades.

    To anyone that has purchased such a gizmo; have you found the quality of the intial buildsup to par and perform as stated right out of the box? Or, have you needed shimming or other work to get the SC within spec?

    Thanks
    Scott

    the problem is... with all fresh parts installed by the manufacturer, everything is up to snuff when it leaves their hands

    the first day you ride your ski, all those specs change... consider it supercharger break-in, except it happens very very quickly, but it doesn't happen on a work bench

    some wear in more than others, some require building up more tension with a shim after that first ride, and some get by no problem

    Yep and IMO if you go more than two shims you need to look for wear an tear on the parts. I have gone 3 shims before, but than again I like Just 2. I will go 3 if I don't have the parts on hand.

    Shibby!!! you hit the nail rite on the head!!! I have checked clutch slip with less than 15 minuts of race time and seen the slip go from 140 inch pounds to 70 inch pounds. Just depends on the rider and the water conditions.
