    RXP Broken

    Out on the river this weekend letting friends take turns on my '06 RXP. One comes back with the story of "we were doing 69 and then all of a sudden it wouldn't turn faster than 50."

    After I rode her, the RPM's won't come above 6500, speed below 50, and the supercharger whine is immediately evident when you take off.

    From my research here over the past 2 years, it sounds like I've been bitten by the clutch washer issue, but I had the Riva stainless washers installed last year.

    I'm bringing it to the guy who did my mods last year, but I wanted to get some feedback so I don't get ripped off.

    Thanks for the help.


    Mike

    Welcome to the forum

    yes, it sounds like the supercharger is the culprit. Remove the intake hose to the SC and see if you can spin the SC wheel. IF you can, then it is the SC.

    Thanks, for the tip and welcome. I've read forum posts for a while, getting good information. Sucks that this is how I have to use my first post.
    I'll check out the SC later this PM. Thanks, again.

    First I would check if the SC hose slipped from under the clamps or blew off ... that happens quite easily too. Verify the hoses from SC to IC/throttle body are on right and re-tighten the clamps.

    +1. If you are hearing the sc whine even louder than normal its probably just that a hose popped off.

    Checked the hose. It was popped off. Clamp broke. Inside with nice light oil coating. Thanks to all for your help. Are there any stickies with how to go about changing the oil yourself? Again, thanks for the help.
