    06 RXT Clutch

    Hi, I'm new to this site, but was wondering if you more experienced guys can confirm that the 06 RXT comes with ceramic clutch disks? I have just bought a new ski, and after a bad experience with my previous GTX clutch, I was planning to replace it with steel, once the warranty expires.

    Thanks for the info guys, the only issue is, I'm told that my warranty is void if I alter the ski. It's brand new, only 3 hours on it so far

    Trust me, you think that`s a problem, wait till your ski injests the ceramics, then it`s pure hell trying to get them to replace the engine. BRP will tell dealer to put on bandaid and send back to customer for the next failure which occurs real soon! . first they will only clean the front screen, but the ceramic debris is still in the oil passages and eating the oil pumps alive. Then as minutes/hours go by the engine starts to destruct, maybe you`ll just lose oil pressure and maybe a rod will go thru the block. BRP will only replace engine if catastrophic failure occurs. So if you don`t change the washers now, and the motor craps the ceramics, make damn sure you blow that sucker up good! Wish I did...

    another thing, if you only have standard warranty, your ski might last that long after the ceramics go, then you are on your own. Don`t mean to sound so harsh, but please read on and do a search on the subject and you will see it is a design flaw that BRP def knows about...PR...

    Definately take those out....I have 130 hrs on mine and have gone through 2 sets of washer ( I am lucky ). But I am replacing mine this month for the steel ones.

    Like PR said, BRP will have the dealer put a bandaid on it hoping it will last until after the warranty expires so then they can azz rape you!

    Thanks for the prompt replies guys. I will see if we can get them to honour the warranty with the steel washers inserted. I previously had a 04 GTX SC that chewed up factory steel washers, and at that time, the fix was to install ceramic. Just confirm that the 06 RXT definitely has ceramic not steel from new?
