    upgrading washers/bearings- help

    we have 2 07 rxt's and are gonna do the washer upgrade ..question is , i see that there are a set of ceramic bearings for this as well, any input on that?? i am familiar with the ceramic bearings for motorcycles wheels and the added performance, just wondering if it would help much here with the s/c or are the washers enough... fyi.. my boat will remain 99% stock for atleast the 2 year warranty period.. thanks

    The general recommendation is to replace the washers asap, now.
    The SC should be rebuilt at at 80-100 hours so wait on the ceramic bearings and do them then. The ceramic bearings is a good mod but not a necessary mod on a new ski like the washers are.
