    SC clutch replacement instructions?

    I searched and came up empty.

    I MAY be needing to swap out the ceramic washers in a 07 RXT leftover that I might be buying this week if the dealer will meet my price.(trading in my wife's 03 GTXsc)
    I won't have time to ship it to Jerry and have it back before I go on vacation 8/2.
    Jerry did the washers on my other 07 RXT a few weeks ago, and his turn around time is amazing, signed for at 4:30PM, shipping notice emailed at 7:30pm SAME DAY!
    The killer is the time it takes to ship at a reasonable price from Boston to Morgan City LA.
    I'm certain I can do this myself, but need to know how to set the clutch slip and torque settings.

    Thanks, I've read the Riva instructions 10 times since this deal
    came up!
    My questions are, do you have to have the special tools to do the job?
    How do you handle the gear needle bearings, this SC is brand new, so I don't think I'll need new bearings, but is there a trick when reinstalling?
    Are Greenhulks washers marked as to which side they fit?
    Does setting the nut to 22 ft lbs automatically set the slip moment?

    I hate being under the gun, and really want to be able to use the ski properly while on vacation.
    It's bad enough that that's where we'll have to break it in, but I think I'll try to convince my wife to let me handle the break in, I should be able to DOO it the first day!

    Special tools are good to have but not manditory. There is a bracket to hold the sc in the vice and a gear tool to hold the gear when checking the slip and a shaft wrench to hold the shaft while removing the clutch end nut. I used an impact wrench to remove the nut.
    Needle bearings in a new sc do not have to be replaced. Just don't loose any and make sure to put all back in, one by one.
    The washers have different hole sizes so they only fit one way.
    Setting to 22 ft lbs automatically sets the slip movement.
    Hope this helps...

    Yes, very helpful!
    I just ordered the washers and tools from Jerry's store.
    For what it would cost to have Jerry do the washers and shipping, it will pay for the tools, and I'll have them for future maintenance on my 2 RXT's as well as my buddy's 2 supercharged skis.

    I failed to mention the shaft wrench to hold the shaft while loosening and tightening the clutch end nut.
    It's a straight forward process. Not too difficult. Just take your time and double check everything.
