Default Hello from Winnipeg

Just signed up after searching for info on the Bonneville, specifically the super charger that required replacing after 268,000 Kilometers.
This appears to be a great place for information and assistance. Handy Tech forum as well.

The site indicated Canadian Supercharger was good place to deal with and I called and purchased a rebuilt supercharger. They are local and provided great service and support. Change went smooth on Sunday morning, with the package containing all the instructions and gaskets etc.
Nice to have that rattle gone from under the hood.

Have found other very useful information on the site and appreciate the work that members and administrators have put into the club.

Bill

Thanks for the welcome. From reading the posts they seem very friendly and cooperative. Could have used some help shovelling snow yesterday, but I guess you would not have much experience with that!!

Welcome to the club.

Too bad you didn't find us sooner, we likely could have saved you a TON of money on that "new" supercharger. That rattling you heard is typically caused by the $20 coupler.

I thought about just doing the coupler, but with 268000 kilometers i fugured it was best to do the whole thing.
