    After how many hours should you change SC bearings?

    Need to just change bearings or there is more to it??

    Depends on how you ride it! Depends where you ride it! Example, I ride river and don't jump serious waves. If you don't let off the throttle when you're unhooked creates stress of the bearings as well. I replaced the bearings when I got the 06 clutch upgrade with metal washers at 75 hours on a 04 RXP. I had a hairline crack of the ceramic washer closest to the supercharger nut! It's a guess when to replace it, unless you owned it brand new and listened to the SC closely,

    Offshore riding is abuse on the SC i rebuild mine every 20-30 hours just to be safe , rebuild includes new bearings and if needed new clutch washers(metal ones ) and new spring washers it might be overkill but imagine blowing a SC 6 miles from shore in the gulf stream on 10 foot seas

    I have about 73 hours on my ski and Im about to change out the washers. Should I get the rebuild kit? Or can I wait until the end of next season? I already have the washers and will be swapping these out in the next week or so.

    U have 73 hours on OEM washers and haven't blown up yet ??? no need to buy the rebuild kit ! not to mention it comes with the ceramic washers, and thats asking for it !! new bearings and new spring washers is all u need $65 total and the metal clutch washers are strongly suggested

    I'm going to offer the bearing upgrade along with new spring washers as a kit. I'm not sure what the price will be yet.
