    Supercharger @ 100hours?

    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted some reassurance or clarification.
    I have a 2004 RXP, think it has 82 hours on it, a friend of a friend who works on them said @ 100 hours these things need to be rebuilt!

    Are they not as solid as the 4-tec?

    Thanks

    No they are solid once you get the ceramic clutch washers out..They have wear items that need attention,Clutches,bearings and spring washers..You have to think these SCers can and will spin in access of 45,000 RPMs..Run that at that kinda RPMs for 82 plus hours...

    Your friend is right..You should have it rebuilt around 100 hours..

    I took my stock ceramic S/C to 200 hrs(06 RXP), then it was rebuilt with steel washers. I was really nervous the whole time I was going to lose my engine but I had bought a 4 year warranty, so I chanced it. But even if you are running steel washers you will at least need slip adjustment at 100 hours no matter who's steel washers you are running. Then while you have it already out, do you go ahead do the rest? I 'll probably just do slip adjustment at 100 hours, since I don't have to worry about the washers taking out my engine

    With the metal washers you may need to have the slip checked before 100 hours depending how hard you ride the ski..Keep an eye on your RPMs and the performance of the ski..If she seems like shes loosing performance and the Rs are dropping chances are youll need the slip reset..

    If it was me, I'd send into Green Hulk for rebuild. He can give you a price. The seadoo dealer rebuilt mine under warranty. Never been the same since. Lost 2-3mph and lost 200-300 rpm's. Most dealers are a joke and their techs don't have half the knowledge people on this site have!

    Definately do the rest! The sc gears wear, and the bearings WILL eventually fail, and cause major damage WHEN they do fail (trust me I know). 100 hrs is pushing it , and for the high rpm ECU's more frequent rebuilds are needed sooner.
