    SHO supercharger rattle

    I was washing out the cooling system and shut down the engine when i could hear the super charger(i think) winding down. There was a slight rattle.
    Questions:
    Is the supercharger fan on a run free bearing,ie does it run on when the engine stops or does it stop because it is gear driven?
    2 Has anyone heard this same rattle? is it a device to stop water run back or the likes?

    It is a bit strage to me!!

    +1 -- Normal. You really hear it if you have the power filter kit.

    Yep quite normal....and the wind down.
    Took mine back to the dealer months ago after the first wash up and flush at home after the first ride.........told me normal and as I wasn't convinced they fired up a brand new one with zero hours to prove the point.
    Does sound a worry though. I didn't even think of it this weekend after having been out both Saturday and Sunday.........was very hot here with the ocean like glass.
    Sorry for rubbing it in. LOL.

    Hopefully somewhere between-Say- Nerang and Coomera, but anywhere on the GC really.
    Have friends in Nerang, and would like to be within half an hour or so of them (a promise I made to my wife to get her to sign the bloody visa app ) Been 7 months now, so hopefully will hear in the next few months, and get out there end of March-ish.--Ready to pick up my FZR!!!! Gos, I think you have replied to me on AUZPWC-I am Mongoose on there as well.
    ROBMEOFF-Sorry for the mini hijack!
