    About $200 in parts. I don't think you can even buy 2007 SC parts anymore since they were replaced by the rebuild 2008 kit... Ron

    Over time most of the SC components will wear. The rebuild kit includes the gear, washers, spring washers, shaft, etc. I think the consensus is to rebuild every 100 hours. Check slip and components at 50 hours...unless you are running bigger SCs...then check after each ride.

    The reason I ask is because I just bought an 07 and is there any reason to go for an 08 upgrade kit or is it fine that my ski has had the ceramics replaced with the metal ones already?

    You should be fine with the '07 supercharger and the metal washers. But how many hours are on the charger and which metal washers ?

    I just bought the ski used but in total the motor has 24 hours on it. The guy i bought it from had them change it to the metal washers at the end of his warranty as a precaution. And that was at 22 hours.

    You might consider pulling the sc at 50-60 hours and checking slip (meaning how much torque is required to cause the washers to slip). If you are jumping wakes or surf alot or just riding in rough water at wot and coming unhooked alot then you need to check more often. These are the kind of riding habits that induce washer failure.

    Oh brother, a two year old ski with only 24 hours...
    makes you wonder why people even bother buying these things.
    For crying out loud, GO RENT ONE.
