So, I have been trying for months now to figure out what I am missing, as far as a belt tensioner goes on my XS-500 Coolcharger supercharger. I have to have the supercharger rebuilt, so I am removing the entire thing, and installing a spectra intake system in the meantime. I need to find someone else with this system who may have a bad blower, and wants to get it out of there. I really want to get this thing back to its true potential. My supercharger is useless without a belt.

I have the xs 500 set up and its got a lot of balls and a sweet sound especially after the headers are on it... But I'm keeping mine.... Where are you located... I've never seen another one in person

I am in Ohio. You are right on. I hooked it up with a belt that was a little loose because I dont have a tensioner for the supercharger belt, and i was hooked! I have to get this fixed. I have the headers, and dual exhaust, and it sounds awesome! would love to see another one so I could see how the belt diagram should be. have a machine shop to rebuild bad bearings.

Anyone have experience with these guys?
Looking to possibly buy a backup unit.

That is perfect man! on the second picture I can see where the tensioner is located, and it is just where I thought. I have a few bolt holes there that def look used. I can try to have one made now. Thanks for taking the time to get those for me. The Lade looks awesome! its nice to see another one of these systems.

Awesome news glad to help, let me know how it works out, it's not a dragster by any means but it is a lot of fun when the supercharger kicks in, best of luck
