    Loss of power RXTX 300

    I'm on vacation and doing a fast pull, with my wife on the back, and the power suddenly chopped at about 66 MPH. The engine light came on and I have no power. I cycle the engine and the light goes off but still no power and if I push it the engine light comes back on. The supercharger is loud at idle now too. I can't see how anything could have gone through the supercharger impeller. Any thoughts? Popped off hose maybe?

    What exactly does no power mean?

    Zero thrust and the engine does no rev at all?

    Or the engine revs and the hull accelerates but overall it seems sluggish?

    You do not mean there is no electrical power, correct?

    Pull intake off supercharger and check the wheel. That would be what I would check first based off your physical observations. If the supercharger has changed sounds that is my first check.

    It might be as simple as you popped a boost hose off. Find you a T30 and a 10MM wrench and pull the top deck off and have a look around.

    Sorry I wasn't more clear. No power means I can barely get to 35 to 40 mph. I'm pulling the deck this AM and I'll give everyone an update. If I end up pulling the charger, it will have to wait til we get home.

    FIXED!! Thank you so much guys for the support!! As soon as I took the deck off, the top hose coming out of the supercharger was popped off right there on top. Thanks again everyone! I'm glad it was the easiest fix ever!!

    It's the hose coming off the supercharger going to the intercooler

    Do yourself a favour and check all your connections and make sure they are all tight.
