My Clutch Failed the test bad, but never slipped
Took my SC out of the ski today. Well I shouldn't say I did solely, i removed the bolts and Rob @ Formula One Marina did the rest. i dunno what I would do without him. and Jay was there dressed all pretty for moral support.
anyways, 2005 RXT with stock original clutch and 93 hours. Both clutch washers were burnt to a crisp just at a first glance when he pulled the SC. and my oil looks pretty pitiful juding by what was dripping of the gears it was changed not long ago too
Put it on the bench and did a slip test on it, and she failed it pretty badly... Kinda weird considering my ski never has slipped at WOT, never dropped less than 8100, and jsut the other day I ran 71+ mph with a 14/18.5 spinning 8100 rpms..
today I installed the Les B kit with a new RR ECU, so i'm glad we caught the clutch before i went crazy with mods because I doubt it would have lasted much longer.
After i find my abnormally high rpm idle problem tomorrow, she goes in the water for some testing

when did you get the B kit? Can't wait to see the results of that

forget the exact number... but slip test was in the low 50's inch pounds... the lowest parameter Seadoo has i believe is 66 in lbs or something? i dunno
received the B kit yesterday, but it's not mine, she's a loaner for some testing... but i'm sure once i'm done playing with it i'll have to buy one for myself

I've said this before but here goes again.... Bearings and clutches every twenty hours.... It,s just not worth the pain in the ass. Maybe Les's clutch will be better...we'll see.
