RXT ceramic washers
I bought a 07' RXT supercharged last year from a dealer in Ohio. When I was at the dealer I specifically asked him if it had the ceramic washers in it and he told me that "the 07 didn't have them and that they corrected it in the 07 model" Is this in anyway true and if not how hard is it to replace those with metal ones? Also, can't wait for Lake Erie to warm up enough to ride!!

he's full of crap it will have ceramics and I would strongly advise replacing them asap.
As for how hard to change depends how good you are with a spanner?
You need to remove the s/c and the drive gear off the back and remove the old washers and fit the new ones there are some special tools to make it easier but can be done without them. Or you could send it to Jerry.

I figured that! I'm a mechanic but, have one question. Do I need to drain the oil first?

So there is no oil surrounding the gear on the shaft?

1.Do I need to take the supercharger in two pieces in order to get the two screws holding it to the engine? (open to the inside)
2.Are all those pins holding that gear on?

That still doesn't answer my questions though.
