    Supercharger rebuild kit-Worth it?

    I have just bought a 2007 rxp 215 and already want to change the washers. Does anyone have suggestions or point me to a post about the advantages of these new washers or just going and getting the new rebuild kit. If I get the whole rebuild kit, will this solve my problems for good or will i still need to do routine maintenance.

    The 2004 - 2007 Sea Doo SCIC engines all came equipped with the prone-to-fail ceramic washers. Some have failed with less than two hours. When the fail, the creamic bits get into the oil, into the seives (little engine filters) and even into the timing chain. If they get in the timing chain, it usually fails in a couple hours causing bent valves or worse (think Honda timing belt failure on an interference engine). If you don't have an extended warranty, you better be thinking about getting the 2008 rebuild kit for about $300. The price has come down quite a bit - the drive gear itself used to list for over $400. The kit has everything you need to rebuilt the SC - except the special tools. Lots of guys take the SC off, send it Jerry (Green Hulk) and have him do it fo $75 IIRC. There's link on the left about the rebuild service. My guess is that Jerry has rebuilt more SCs than anyone else. So, don't wait for a failure, Get-R-Done now... Ron

    At the very least change the washers out to be Riva metal washers... if you can afford the 08 kit then go with it... but even if you do you STILL need the Riva metal washers.
