    i just purchased a 08rxp and 08rxt and was wondering if it is recommended that the washers in the supercharger need replaced.

    Some will say yes some will say no. Here is the way i look at it, it has metal washers from the factory now and it is also under warrenty for a year so if u ride it hard this year and it breaks its covered, if it doesnt then when u rebuild them use the riva ones.

    Welcome to the forum!!!!!

    Its not a must like it was with ceramics but there have been some stock 08 skis that have lost there washers.

    With that being said if you can swing it I would change your washers.

    I ran my T-X to 40 hours and needed to be shimmed at that point as lost some slip and rpms. Since then I decided to change out my stock washers at 48 hours to the Rivas.

    It a good piece of mind if you can afford it.

    You should check them now. That's a big rpm loss. I wouldn't wait any longer.

    A couple weeks ago my buddy's RXPX with 44 hours was varying a little on top end. Checked SCer, 4 ft/lbs slip. The 08 RXP and RXT maybe okay with the smaller SCer to 100 hour SCer rebuild.

    Yes, warranty will cover it but sometimes its a nightmare to get a new motor. A friend of mine got his RXPX motor "rebuilt" after his washers failed at 60 something hours and it lasted maybe 2 hours before it snapped the timing chain.

    If it were me I would thro those junk OEM washers in the trash and get real ones just for the peace of mind..
