    He's a;ready put 10 hours on it with no issues. I think we're past the catastrophic failure point. I would be concern that the PO had some supercharger issue. You need to confirm if it has had some previous failure there

    There has never been a supercharger issue. Verified from original owner. The ski did sit for a year and a half before I bought it as he bought a new RXP.

    Huh well oil filter doesn't have a speck of metal on it after 10 hours. Could some of metal prior be from improper storage?

    If you have no plans to pull the motor and inspect it at least have a look at the front oil pump/screen. It's easier to get to than the rear one and will show if you have/had larger metal floating in the oil.

    Not planning on selling it unless I decide to buy my cousins mint Honda r12x he's selling. Just hit 18 hours since oil filter mishap and no issues and no metal pieces.
