    Riva Supercharger washers vs 08 Sea Doos

    Since I lost the washers in my 08X, I was curious are Rivas washers better than Sea Doos stock 08 metal washers? Since its warrentied would it be worth it to buy Rivas on my dime and have them install them on their dime?
    Thanks

    Do not use the OEM washers. Get the Rivas! They arent coated with that titanium-nitride **** for a reason. The coated OEM units ****ing suck!!! Im having mine replaced before **** goes south.

    Heed all the censored jargon. Dont use the OEM crap.

    Cause when BRP stole the idea Riva was coating theirs. They since stopped since Jerry's were better and uncoated. Remember BRP is always 2 years behind on stealing improvement ideas.

    The coated washer worked just fine in all my race boats.You have to use their oil though.I've raced 50 hrs on a set of coated washers at 8,600 rpm's and never had to shim either.

    Jammer, he is trying to say it wouldn't have taken the Chinese two years to make knock off washers. If a new product comes out here in hte States the Chinese have reverse engineered and manufactured it within two months. Do a Google search for Chinese iPhone. They had a knock off within a month that some say was better than Apple's.
