    Ceramic Washers vs. Metal Washers

    I'm new to the PWC world.

    And I've heard a lot about the Ceramic Washers and how it is a big deal when buying a new jetski to make sure it has Metal.

    Is that a big deal guys ???

    Major deal! The question I would ask is if the ceramics blew up in the motor or oil pumps!

    very big deal either change out the washers yourself or send it to jerry and he will do it for you for like 80 bucks plus the cost of metal washers which you can get from the online store.

    If you are planning on buying the new 2008 Seadoos (from reading your other thread) dont worry about it. Seadoo has gone to a metal washer setup from the factory now.

    Yes. Do a board search about ceramic washers. You will find all you need to know.

    2003 SC model: no washers, gears rode on top of each other.
    2004-2007: new SC design, ceramic washers from the factory, prone to breaking and going into your oil pumps and destroying your engine.
    2008: same SC design, but metal washers instead of ceramic washers to help protect the engine

    need more info? check,

    Yep, 2007's need the fix. If you go with 07's and need help removing the supercharger let me know and I will give you a hand. Then you can send it off to Jerry.

    Chances are it's not going to have metal unless its an 08 model. It's a big deal for you to change them out as quickly as possible to metal. Read all about what can happen if you don't
