    Question supercharger corrosion

    I ride exclusively in salt water all summer. I flush the ski religiously and spray everything down with lube on a daily basis. when i pulled the oem supercharger today to install the x-charger i found all kinds of corrosion after about 20hrs. most of it rubbed off with a good coat of oil.

    Now i realize the inside of the charger is bare aluminum. Now my question is how do i keep this from happening from my shiny new x-charger.

    Quit ridding in salt water... kidding When your flushing out the ski... shoot some XPS lubricant into the air intake, done deal

    Some X chargers oil themselves, your IC, intake, etc....

    i wish i had some fresh water to ride in
    so your saying while the motor is running just shoot it in from the intake side. i was thinking it might hurt the blades in the charger. but now that i think about it a light spray should be fine.

    is this what everyone does that rides in salt water
