    How many skis blew their washers?

    Before and after I bought my RXT, I've been reading about all the people that have eaten the ceramic washers. I also talked to 2 different dealers, one that I've bought my Ski Doo's from for 15 years where I use to live, and my current dealer. The old dealer told me that they have had a "few" eat the washers, and the main issue that they found was when people had the skis in rough water with the pump/SC loading and unloading. The dealer where I bought the ski told me that in the last 2 years that 85% of the skis they sold were S/C's, and that they have replaced no washers, and only had one S/C failure that wasn't from the the washers. They tell me that with the water we ride in, which is pretty calm, that it should never be an issue. I have no problem spending the $100 for the washers, but I'd really like to see how many different people here have had a faiure. Not just that you put steel in, but that have actually failed, and how many didn't

    42 hrs on ceramic. About 12 hrs with stage 2 and ceramics. That was before I read about the metal washers. I'm changing them as soon as I get home from Iraq.

    My 07 RXP just hit 20 hrs and I think about it everytime I ride, I will be changing it out in 2 weeks ( after Labor Day) and will send it to Jerry to do what ever it needs.

    These poll numbers are SCARY! I know BRP is famous for not changing some things on their Snowmobiles (been there done that) that they should, but what is up with these washers?? It can't cost them any more to use steel. Of course they probably think that we will all want steel replacements when and if they change them.

    Its going to be interesting to see these numbers in a week or so.
