protecting the clutch

I have an 04 with original clutch and 120 hours. I always let off the gas when the pump comes unhooked when jumping eaves, i always warm it up, and let it cool down by riding idle for a few minutes after hard riding. I also change my oil ever 25 hours and never use synthetic oil.
I don't know if it's luck or riding style that's kept my clutch working. Thing is about reading the posts here about failure. People tend to write about the failures and not comment on the non-failures...

Like Miketrin said I warm up the ski 2-3 minutes for riding it. Sometimes if my wife is taking the trailer out and parking it. I'll put it in reverse/nuetral and run it while I'm holding it in the water until she gets back. I also release the throttle slowly when coming off WOT.

I thought the 04s didn't use ceramic washers. I heard they just start to slip, but don't come apart.

04-06 use ceramics, that can break apart. The 06's were thicker than previous years.
Les's metal washers are made for all year SC'ers . 30+hrs and no problems yet with "B" kit SC .Some may need a shim after 10 hrs of break in.
