    No! Catch can catches blow by from the engine...SC is lubed from inside the engine. The catch can will accumulate oil and water and should be emptied occasionally.
    The supercharger works from the engine oil. Not connected to the catch can.

    What year SC shaft do you have? on the '08 shaft the SC bearing get it's oil through a oiler hole in the SC's shaft.

    Actually the crank case vent does help lube the sc and probably the top end. Its not necassary but does help prevent corrosion and if you ride alot of salt water it can be important. If thats the case it may be a good idea to do a LIGHT fogging with a thin lubricant after each ride.

    Regards

    Fogging the intake of your SC will prevent corrision build-up on the compressor wheel and the inside of the SC casing. You want to do this while the motor is running.. spray a quality lubricant(wd-40, sea doo brand, ect..) into your air intake close to the SC as possible and also it does'nt hurt to hit your Throttle body butterfly while your there. you don't want to put alot, just enough to mist the area.. the majority of the SC's oil comes from the shaft, so your not oiling the SC just fogging the area to prevent corrision.

    ALEX I agree with the fogging but I disagree with the thought it will do anything for salt build up. I have seen salt stay on a crankshaft for months in a 2 stroke and rust the first time its exposed to air. It will keep moisture from the surfaces. I work in a shop that deals with salty Skis. The only thing that deals with salt is a fresh water rinse followed by a protectant. This isnt a good idea on a supercharger or engine intake so your idea of WD40 or fogging oil is a good idea. Maybe the salt cant hold on with all that WD40 now that I can believe in.. SALT SUCKS.. I have 2 4stroke engines on the bench both with salt water damage from just riding in salt water.. Valves on the Yamaha and Valves and rings on the Doo..... FOG THOSE ENGINES
