    WTF? RXP almost threw me off

    I was riding WOT when my 2006 RXP suddenly slowed down instantly and had me over the bars

    The supercharger was whining way louder than usual during that time. IT was a weird, loud, but deep whine. It ran fine on the way back to the ramp, but i was going pretty slow.

    Any idea what happened ? Did it slip ?

    Sound like you blew a boost hose off. Check all of your hoses and clamps.

    You are actually lucky that a large piece of gelcoat didn't peel off and do that to you... Ron

    I was blowing boost hoses off the other weekend and it never tried to throw me over the bars..Check your intake grate,sponsons,rideplate and see if you might have broke a bolt or have something hanging down

    You could be right but the fact his sc was louder than normal suggests a huse blew off and I can tell you that if you are in full attack position expecting acceleration and a boost hose pops off the sudden loss of power can get your attention quick.. However it is a good suggestion to take a look under the ski.
