04-05 clutch , What to do ?
Is it 700 total for the hydrolic ? Do you need anything else for it?
Les sells the metal washers that fit the 04-05 clutch for like 80.
Are Jerry's metal washers only going to fit the RR or 06 shaft ?
upgrade is like 400 and washers probably 100 = 500
Would a 05 shaft and Les washers be ok ? What happens if the metal fails it just slips and you see boost lost and just put on new ones right. Or replace them every couple seasons /100 hours. The metal washers don't break up and go into the oil pump etc, right ? What happens to them after slipping ?

Les recommends you change them every 100 hours. They are a great upgrade and the best way to go for the 04-05 clutch.

what is going to cause the metal washers to begin slipping? weakened spring washers? or the metal will in time get ground down a little... in which case we'll see if the oil pumps really do get saved or not, lol. Change the oil OFTEN!

Them metal washers wont grind down anymore then lets say your cylinder walls....and if they doo the particles that do get ground off will be so minute that you wouldnt be able to see them with the naked eye.... I think these washers are going to be an amazing thing for us seadoo owners!

Thanks Jerry for the response. One more question. If the shaft for the 04-05 breaks with metal washers, what is the worst case scenerio. Do you just loose boost or can there be internal damage ?
I'm thinking of using the metal washers on the 05 shaft. If it breaks then I'm going to take my SC housing into the dealership for warranty and get the 06 shaft.
When it gets out of warranty I'll probably do the hydrolic or the whatever is "new" in 3 years.

Severe engine damage can occur if the shaft breaks. Your supercharger gear/clutch components can drop down onto the crank gear which could drive it through the block. Last time i checked new engines were $5800, but you would probably be able to find one much cheaper on ebay.
Remember, there is a reason Sea Doo went to the thicker supercharger shafts in '06

Guess it's the 06 shaft and GH washer
Watch next year SD will go to a 07 shaft upgrade with metal washer
