    Ceramic or not?

    I bought a 2007 Rxp 215 used last year with around 50 hours on it. At the time I was told that the washers had never been changed out. I decided to pull the charger and was going to send it in to have the riva washers put on before I take it out this season. Before I send it in I wanted to verifiy that the washers that are on the charger are in fact ceramics. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

    Those pics are pretty blurry man, but from what I can make out I'm pretty sure they are ceramics.

    That one looks greenish. They are ceramics as far as I can tell. Get them changed out ASAP, especially on a RXP.

    I should be receiving my charger back this week. Is it necessary to put anything on the gear of the supercharger before reinstalling. If so what is recommended? Thanks in advance.

    When you put the charger back in make sure your the everything inside the pto housing is oiled with your typical motor oil (gears,shaft, washers, etc.) Make sure that the unpainted surface of the rear housing that slides into the pto housing (silver area w/ the o rings) is greased with some waterproof marine grease.
