    All the 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 SCs came with ceramic washers from BRP... Ron

    You really do not need to know, bottom line is to replace them!!
    If you start seeing 5500-6000 at wot then they have bit the dust.
    Not covered in warranty...
    If you wait until they go bad then the results are really bad because they desintegrate into the engine and most dealers do not do a good job of cleaning out the engine when replacing them.
    Just get the metal ones put in and forget about the worry. The metals will last 100+ hours and will not desintegrate. Do it asap.

    In case the new guys haven't found it, check the "SC Clutch Failure" link to the left; should explain it all.

    your ski goes boom!

    Seriously though, if the ski fails under warranty it will be fixed. The issue is that not many dealers know how to properly fix it, or they are jsut lacking in their diligence.
    100-120 $$$ is pretty cheap for piece of mind. So get them replaced now, either by yourself {how-to's on this website] or get a trusted dealer, if there is such a thing.
