    Putting Metal Washers in 2 x '06 RXPs. Should I do it myself?

    I've never had the SC off either of my 2006 RXPs. They are both pretty low hours (20) but I still want to get those ceramic washers out.

    From the HowTos I've read, it seems I need some special tools. Is it worth buying the tools, or just paying someone else to put the new washers in? I'd rather avoid the crazy prices of the dealer.

    Send the SC to Jerry. You should go for full rebuild since the bearings can also fail and damage the motor.

    check the sticky at the top of this section.It has a lot of great info in it..... It also states that Jerry charges $50 for labor on each charger plus parts to install the upgraded washers....

    Buy the tools and do it yourself or send it to Jerry here on the forum. If you have mechanical ability it's not really hard at all. Post pics and ask questions.

    Yep, really time for a full rebuild with the 08 spec charger. As stated above the bearing cages will get brittle and break, Jerry suggested every two years for replacement regardless of hours run.

    Full rebuild time.
    If the bearings fail its 2k+ in parts and labor.
    I've even seen a ski that needed a new motor after the bearings crapped out at max rpm.

    Better safe then sorry.

    Send them to jerry for rebuilds. I do recommend buying the tools to check and maintain slip though.

    Great advice! It's time for full rebuilds on those superchargers!
