    why the slip washer in the rxt??

    i have had a couple of supercharged cars and i ever have a procharger kit for my 900 rzr and i have never herd of a slip washer? all the chargers i have ever rebuilt were direct drive. is there some reason to have some slippage in a supercharged jetski vs a car? thanks for the help understanding this

    how big are the shafts on car SC's the shaft on a seadoo SC is small and can snap off if slip clutches were not there when coming off throttle

    sounds like someone needs to make a one way slipper clutch for them

    It would not matter what size shaft it had, you would just tear everything else apart. Have enough trouble keeping teeth on flywheels and even keeping the flywheels bolted on running big SC with high slip moment.

    The pump puts a lot of load on everything, more than you would think. Coming unhooked, hitting the limiter and hooking back up puts a lot of stress on everything. The drive system is direct drive to, without gearboxes with clutches unlike cars.

    What is different about Yamaha's set up? They don't have a specified rebuild interval do they?

    Best way to describe the Yami clutch is a Sprag setup, kinda like what you have on a typical peddle bike...You'd peddle, then free wheel it...

    One major difference is when the Yammi let's go it doesn't drop its guts into the engine wiping the engine out. Yammis have some SC issues also.

    Thats what I thought. Why hasn't Seadoo made something similar?

    I've only seen pictures of the yam setup and what you have to do when they let go, and based on that I'm more than happy to just rebuild my charger ever 100hrs. Not like its hard to get it out.
