    RXP Supercharger/Steel Washers/Warranty

    Hello all, a friend of mine just bought an '06 RXP brand new from a local dealer. After about 15 hours the SC went out.

    He called the dealer to get info about repairs and they said that if he bought the steel washers they would install them, but it would void their 4 year warranty. Is this true? Has anyone else gone through something like this?

    It seems weird that something which would IMPROVE reliability and keep the Ski out of the shop voids the warranty. Is the dealer feeding him a line, or is this really the case?

    Thanks.

    I guess this dealer hasn't heard the news. The 08 models will come from the factory with steel washers

    My clutch was slipping last spring,(among other things,long story),and the dealer replaced my washers.I asked them that if I bought the metal washers would they install them,I was told no and the mechanic was even rude about it.Sea Doo service Depts are oblivious.Pretty pathetic that these "qualified" techs know less than the average Joe on GreenHulk.net but it sure speaks volumes for the gang here!!

    ...We found that it depended on WHICH dealer you spoke to!

    The dealer who eventually fitted ours told me his is factoring in the price of fitting metal washers in all SC Sea-Doo's he will take in part exchange in future!
