    ceramic washer question rxp/rxt

    I am looking at getting a 09 rxp and 09 rxt new.....do these still have the ceramic washers?

    If so is this something I need to have the dealer swap out before I will buy them?

    why do you recommend the switch if they are both metal?

    I am glad they are metal now! I just took a big deep breathe when i read your post....I just didnt want to have to worry about swapping them and haggling with the dealer to have them do the swap....i would imagine the metal washers is what they carry so if i still asked them to do the swap they would be swapping out the same part

    There has been a few cases of the OEM metal clutches acually breaking..Dont get me wrong..These Metal clutches are still 100% better than the ceramics though...

    There are still people having issues with the Stock metal washers in the 08 and up skis, also they lose slip very quickly compared to the Riva washers. I ran less then 30 hours on a 09 RXP-X supercharger on my 07 RXT and had my slip go down almost 10 lbs.
