    Supercharger rebuild

    Hows it going guys, still new to PWC and the forum so if this has already been answered 100X please forgive me. I bought a 2008 RXPX 255, it had 61 hrs on it and I was able to enjoy putting another 25Hrs on it this past summer. I know that the 2008 was the first year sea doo changed the SC washers from ceramic but my question is, do the blowers still need to be rebuilt at 100hrs? I was told that the 2008's were the first year with the changed SC ring and they were now recommended to be serviced at 200Hrs instead of 100. Thanks in advance for any information

    Most would recommend 100 hours or every 2 years.

    If I were you I’d rebuild it at 100 with an oem kit, those are rated for 200hr.

    I rebuilt my 05 at about 135hr and the bearings looked completely fine, as did the washers and clutches. Just my 2 cents.

    I would rebuild it with an oem kit. A 2008 with unknown rebuild history is definitely due and it's a lot cheaper than fixing the damage if it does grenade.

    Keep in mind they suggest it as PREVENTIVE maintenance so the fact the old parts looked “ok “ is a good thing , you don’t ever want a SC to grenade on your dime , this hobby gets expensive real fast if you cut corners or roll the dice of luck .

    I sent mine off to PWC Muscle. Saved quite a bit of $$ but it was a real PITA to remove and replace. Its not difficult, you just need to get some speciality tools and you'll also wish you had smaller hands.

    The 200 hour rebuild started in 2011. See this thread.

    At your skis age I would get it rebuilt.
