    Slipped SC. belt

    Pushing it hard in very rough open sea..even it has been front submersed while jumping in waves. High wave make my utra heavy front be subsided and quickly recover and jump in other wave..anyway a lot of fun..after 1.5 hour later it starter loosing power..at begging I though some water inter it..Pulled it to beach slowly in very low RPM I check supercharger belt it was miss alingment and out of pulley..what make it be loose or miss alingmet..does the jumping inpact and make it like that

    Water in the belt will cause a hydro plane effeft. This usally happens when the coupler pulley is partially submerged in water during higher RPM's.

    Easy fix and in the future if your goin to go wave jumping then get duck bills or VersaPlugs to help aviod collected water from getting trapped.

    Easy fix if you have a 14mm socket and belt tenson tool.
