    2008 215 S/C - ceramic washers, yea or nay???

    OK, Bombadier won't speak to me ("contact your dealer"). Dealers haven't got a clue ("yes it does", "no it doesn't", "ceramic what?").

    So....... Does the 2008 Sea-Doo GTX-215 Limited have the ceramic washers or not? The boat has 5 hours on it and I'm not made of money, so I don't want to replace metal washers if it's not necessary but if it has the ceramic washers, then I'll take it in and have the S/C rebuilt.

    Yes, I did search the website but didn't find a definitive, informed, answer. I also posted on the other site in the hope that someone there may know for sure.

    Thanks in advance.

    Even the gold ones weren't 100%. It was only an interim solution which also saw failures (not as many). These were then phased out to non coated 'regular' washers. So I would tread carefully. If you're not made of money you DO NOT want a SC to grenade on you. On an 08 it could effectively write it off.
