    cancelling S/C washers?

    was browsing around a local forum, and some one said that they cancelled out their supercharger washers.

    i wasnt sure if he was stupid/rednecking his seadoo/ or just a genious...

    ive searched on the web and cant seem to find any type of kit or anything...

    do you guys have any input on this?

    (and and his machine was a 2005 C180)

    thanks for the replies in advance.

    A direct drive? Ouch. It would literally tear itself apart.
    Imagine the sc wheel as an egg and the washers the styrofoam packaging. The egg can take quite a bump with that small amount of cushioning, right? Taking away the washers (styrofoam packaging) would be detrimental to the wheel, the engine, and your pocket book.

    try stopping that small cast aluminum supercharger wheel spinning around 45,000 rpms. the shaft will twist off or the wheel might desintegrate.

    Some 185 skis dont have S/C washers.This set up wasnt good for this application so they changed to the newer style(this one which all know with the two S/C washers)!I will try to get a pic of a charger that I have from my ski.It has never touched or repaired since it lefts the factory!

    i realise about the dangers... of cancelling them out... i KNOW how it works... and WHY the washers are there....

    im just not sure how he made it possible to be w/o washers....

    but for a jetboat... its not that big of a deceleration compared to ski...

    so the older 185 HP had no washers? was the C180 vailible with the 185HP in 2004-2006?

    S/C washers work like the friction plate in your cars gearbox.
    I dont know about the C180 but some early GTXs use this set up!(185 skis only!!)

    sadly we have no choice now do we?

    anyone else put a different type of S/C?
    like a roots type SC... maybe eaton? like the kawasaki?
    im sure it might require a dif. maintenance but maybe not every 80-120 hours......
