    John,
    Dont listen to Mark,hes trying to be funny,Ceramics are the past and nothing but trouble...Either of them,Riva or OEM will work fine...OEM or RIvas have been used for quite some time now and IF setup correctly you should have no issues with either of them..With that being said you will still want to pull your Scer after about 10 ours of use to recheck/set the slip,then after that you should be good to go...

    seadoo centre washers

    i have been using seadoo centre washers for 6 years in my rxp along with their a-kit R supercharger. they are australian made and are very good quality, all edges are rounded off, i have over 120 hours on a set and never had to adjust slip they have held tight since install, and i ride hard in a lot of choppy ocean in perth, a few buddies also in perth use them, one has a brand new x- charger bought from greenhulk online store with the latest washers, when it arrived he changed out oem washers for seadoo centre washers, was told i could get 200 hours out of washers but i wouldnt trust the bearings for that long. i have measured several washers with a digital vernia and found seadoo centre washers to be slightly thicker than the new oem washers, and all other washers. i have 3 sets of unused latest spec oem washers sitting here that i wont use, seadoo centre is in melbourne so is quite close to NZ for delivery, just my opinion!

    You are so funny I fell off the chair,
    Just remember if you ride a Yamaha you need a tow rope.

    You are slightly better as the power is coming from quality.

    Just remember to tie it on to the trolley or it Will slide off !!!!!!

    Thanks and it comfirms what we are running, they are slightly thicker, and do hold up
    The New OEM ones are also ok, but the just need a bit of a rub up with the finest paper you can get 1500 or 2000, and a piece of glass, do this and the slip does not move, yip checking about every 5 hours of riding and Short course abuse.

    It doesn't matter what hull, as long as it rotax powered NA is nice, but I always prefer being blown.

    Latest innovation is TAP washers as if they are making any power you will be replacing them every time you need max boost. Garrett all the way or if your a little down on bucks due to constant failures of your gear there is always the Scarles or Turbonetics.
