    New "RIVA Super Washers" about to hit the market

    I was contacted by Riva today as they are about to release their own metal clutch washers.

    From what i understand their washers have been in the works for over a year and are supposed to far surpass the durability and quality of any of the current washers on the market. Including mine I guess it's not such a bad thing as i sell Riva products too and if we can all benefit from a better product then so be it.

    I was happy to hear that these will be "NON COATED" washers

    They said expected release date was the beginning of May.

    be curious to find out what "superior" means.

    what kind of hours are people seeing on your washers before they need shimming?

    I don't know, but im going to find out as i asked for a set to test. They said that the combination of metal and treating processes make their washers hold up better against friction and heat resulting in a longer life span.

    I have seen my washers go 50+ hours without a need to shim. In comparrison i have seen the coated washers only go 5-10 hours.

    Jerry, wouldn`t you agree that your washers will last even longer than 50+ hours in rec riding scenario, not balls to the walls abuse riding?...PR...

    I think they will last 100 + hours, but will probably need a re shim between 50 and 100 hours depending on how hard the ski is ridden.

    Jerry, Is Riva going to come out with an 07 finger throttle without the entension kit? Have you heard anything on this? I can't wait to hear the results on these new washers! Right in time!
