    Just because it is metal doesnt mean that is not going to break.......I remember when I had my b-KIT one day at the lake I was riding the ski like I stole it, I heard a noise coming from the inside of the engine bay so I stop and pulled the ski out of the water. Pulled the s/c just to inspect it and found both clutch metal washers cracked in half....

    I had the stock metal washers fail on me at 75 hours.
