Ohh No!!! I need Some Advice!!
Ok well i finally decided to get rid of my ceramic washers after hitting the 100 hour mark.. I purchased a 07 supercharger with metal washers installed from a board member here that told me the sc had only 30 hours on it.
Well i finally was able to get some help to install the supercharger and add a green wheel. well we installed the charger and after 15 mins of riding my engine came to a Holt!!! I was able to get back to the ramp. put my ski on the trailer and take it home. Well in my head i was thinking OK the pump bearing froze up. so i pulled the pump and the pump spins fine.. Then i proceeded to take the hose off the sc and see if i can spin the wheel.. Well that was tight!!. so then i proceeded to pull the hose off the throttle body.. bam!!!!! I had gray powder all inside the hose. well then i took the supercharger off. Thanks to Scott(Treemn) and Jim(taylor215) That have helped me the whole way with the install.
Well anyway we took the supercharger off to find. the shaft tilted to the side with the bearings laying inside i only see 5 bearings. are there six? we also opened the housing and found the green wheel to be toast. that touched down..
My question to you. is What do i do now..
I know do like 5 oil changes.. already pumped the oil out. Nice fine shavings of metal inside.. What about the bearing if there is 6 of them.. Also do i need to do anything with the inter cooler.
Since the motor came to a stop do i have to worry about internal damage?
Im really upset. I have never had a problem with my ski since i bought it. That is why it had taken me this long to change the washers. I didint want to mess with a good thing..
I bought the spare supercharger because i like to keep my original parts. My ski still has warrenty.

What a nightmare !! You try to do something that will ensure the longevity of your engine only to shred a SC wheel. I feel for you dude! Who put the SC together with the Greenwheel ? Thats what I would look it. Was it assembled correctly?

Bomb: There's a very good chance that you have metal shavings in your oil pumps and screens as well as in the folds of your oil filter. Changing the oil helps, but you really need to inspect the rest....especially if there is indeed a bearing missing.

I Suggest You Take The Engine Out And Pull Out The Pto Housing To Removed All The Metal Shavings From Inside Your Engine And Inspect For Any Broken Parts Inside And Damaged. Better Be Safe Than Sorry.

Luckily when mine failed recently all of the bearings were laying inside the SC housing itself....if i were you, the motor would be pulled and taken apart, i've heard it's really easy to do.

I would look at your SC replacement. The SC clearances and specs are very tight and should be done patiently and by the book. Not much room for error. Unless it was just bad timing and the parts happen to fail at a bad time. If you saw shavings in the oil I would remove the engine and make sure you get everything done right, better to do that than do it half ass and have another failure.

What really torques it is his ski is still under warranty...
he takes it to the dealer and they are like WTH, how did this happen?
It's a tough spot to be in... one of the many reasons I keep mine stock.

what would u do if i had warrenty left till 2010. im sure there is a way around this.. I should have never touched the ski. i bought the supercharger with metal washers to be safe since everyone always said that i was crazy for running stock this long. 100 hours. now i install a supercharger with metal washers and this happens!!!
