    Exclamation Supercharger rxt-x blew up , updated with pictures!!!!

    My supercharger on my 08 rxt-x blew up yesterday. (30 hrs on it )

    After inspection this is what i found:


    Low oil at the dipstick
    Both metal washers gone
    Impeller damaged
    Bearings bad
    Oil filter with metal pieces in it.
    Metal pieces in the intercooler
    Rubber hose to intercooler had holes in it
    (this was caused by the metal pieces of the impeller)
    Oil in the hoses and intercooler,supercharger,throttlebody



    I live in the Netherlands, Europe.
    I have no warrenty,if not bought by a local dealer ,but instead imported
    from the US you have no warranty.

    Yes i know pretty stupid,but i thought what can go wrong?

    So i gonna do it myself.

    Need a new supercharger with riva washers,the seadoo's suck.

    Replace the hose which is damaged.

    I am gonna pull the front cover and inspect the oilpump.

    Since i am missing two washers, who knows what i will find!

    This is my plan:


    Try to repair without removing the engine.
    Replace supercharger
    Replace hose to intercooler
    Pull the oil pump front
    Pull pto cover , inspect oil pump back
    Inspect timing chain
    Change oil until the metal pieces are gone.
    After every oil change pull the pump and oil filter.

    Here is my question:



    There was some oil in the throttlebody will this cause any problems?



    If you have any suggestions please help.

    I did read al the threads on this problem so i do hope i didn't miss anything!!

    My friend you have to inspect the engine completely ... open the head and see if there is any metal gone to the engine head ... or you are going to lose the hole engine and try to drain the oil from the engine if you find any small metal you better to take the engine a part and clean it very will and put it back together just to protect your pocket from paying for new engine...

    After inspecting the damaged parts,there is no other option then to remove the engine.
    Will be a lot of work,its the only way to be safe there are no metal pieces left in the engine.
    The supercharger is so badly damaged,i will place a brand new one.
    Intercooler looks ok after removing all the metal parts and oil that was in the intercooler.

    My other ski had ceramic washers which i replaced after 165 hrs,never any problems.
    The metal ones on the rxtx whre gone after 30 hrs,they are certainly no improvement!!!!!

    I do hope the riva washers are better quality!

    Pictures of the damage

    Here are the pics what happens if your supercharger lost the metal washers.

    And if the bearings fail your impeller looks like this.

    Look at the metal parts which where in the intercooler

    I'm wondering what went first, the bearings or the washers.
    How much is the OEM supercharger?

    The supercharger costs $ 698 in jerry's store if i am correct.

    I will ask him to put the riva washers in,don't trust the oem washers anymore!

    I will order the parts after i opened the engine,who knows what i will see.

    Lets hope there not to much damage to the internals of the engine.

    I hear ya, hoping for the best. Oil pump is a valid concern like Strad said. Check with Shibby1485 for his thoughts on this too. From what I hear, if you had a Yamaha FZR the supercharger alone would be $3,000. These toys ain't cheap...

    Thanks for the info.
    I already read shibby's post on the failing supercharger.
    That helped me alot.

    Wow those yammi parts are expensive,first let us see how reliable those chargers are!!!


    I sent Jerry a pm for the supercharger,he will include an engine manual.

    That will help for sure !!!!!!!!
