    Looking at a 2008 RXT

    I have been looking for a good low hour 2008 RXT. Any known issues with that year?? They usually sell fast in my neck of the woods if they are Fresh Water Use only. If anyone knows anything to look out for on the RXT, please let me know. I think I read 08 was the 1st year for Metal Washers being stock. Any help is appreciated.

    08 is the year they started putting metal clutch washers in but the 1st half of 08 they did still use the ceramic washers.
    Play it safe and completely rebuild the s/c bearings and washers.
    Other than that just ride it hard for 15-20 min to test it before buying.
    Good luck!!

    Or just remove the air intake and see if the charger spins by hand, if it does washers are gone. You can also remove the charger and check to see what washers it has.
