    Ceramic washers

    I'm buying a 2006 RXP WITH 45 hours. Owner says original washers were never changed. Is it safe to use until the hours are closer to 100 or should I immediately pay for a sc rebuild? I'm guessing the cost at a dealer would be $500-$1,000?

    I could really use some advice. My 1996 GSX finally packed it in and I'm new to this high performance equipment.

    Immediately have it rebuilt man thats a ticking time bomb....the relatively small fee now would be a good insurance policy for having to dish out money later for a new motor. Send it in to Jerry he will rebuild it for you and you'll be good to go. It would probably also cost less than a dealership.

    while your at it id knock out the 50 hour service so you dont have to worry bout anything else for the rest of the season.

    Mine went off at 27 hours. If you are not planning on changing them you might end up with a 3000$ bill. The cost of metal washers is around 100$. Maybe you could talk to Jerry. Test the ski make sure it revs about 8000 rpms at WOT and 68-70 mph top speed just to check that sc is ok and then go for a change.

    Do yourself favor and have the S/C rebuilt. There are 2 types of S/C with Ceramic washers those that have failed and those that are going to fail!! Jerry seems to do a great job on S/C rebuilds and very competitive on pricing. I am speaking on the failures from personal experience. I think I owned one of thre first RXP's to have S/C washer failure. The ski had 72 hours on it and the Ceramic Washers broke into several pieces it was so bad I had to get a new engine.

    Do a complete s/c rebuild.
    Washers and bearings.
    I just had a friend who's 06 rxp bearings in the charger went and it was an expensive fix because they went out.

    It's a lot cheaper to change the washers and bearings than to fix all that breaks when they do go out.

    It's a ticking bomb till there changed.

    If your interested I have a 215 charger that Jerry just did a complete rebuild on $329.00 last year and since only put 3hrs on in. I'm currently upgrading to an X Charger. I will sell 215 charger for $400.00
