    I went in for washers today also but they only sell them in the rebuild kit. Just like here on greenhulk. Oh and I heard the titanium ones are pretty manly lol

    ow many hours on your SC unit. If it is anywhere near 100 you should just have the whole thing rebuilt. The newest seadoo rebuild kits include metal washers that are very good.

    There's no such thing as stainless steel clutch washers so if that's what your mechanic is installing you need to run and hide from him.

    The gold colored washers you are referring to used to come in the Seadoo supercharger rebuild kit and has since been replaced by a better washer that's gray in color.

    If your supercharger has never been rebuilt on that 04 RXP then you need to do it now. The 04-05 RXP had a poor clutch design that uses a thin gear that is very weak.

    If your supercharger has at some point been rebuilt with a newer style 06-07 kit and has low hours then the best thing to do is install a set of Riva clutch washers.
