    Washer failure?

    I was out riding today on my 2004 rxp with Jerry installed Riva washers, ceramic bearings and Vortech wheel. I was only turning 6300 rpm when I got out so I brought it home and before I pulled the charger i noticed the wheel spun freely. After I pulled the charger I noticed that it seems like one of the washers are missing on the side towards the housing. There is less than 30 hours on all of this since it was installed. Any thoughts on this? Thanks for everyones input in advance.

    Can't tell from pics. Looks like mine. If you hold the gear does the wheel spin?

    yes if you hold the shaft the gear spins. Also if you look down the shaft into the housing you can see the bearings rolling around and only a few are there.

    Call me....

    Mr. Obvious but it sounds like the bearings went....if you can take the pics again and put the camera in macro mode (flower icon if its a point and shoot). Jerry or someone might need to see them and the first ones are pretty blurry.

    Sorry I can't offer more help.

    I kind of figured the bearing failure but why would the metal washer be missing and the bearings fail.

    Here is hopefully some better pics.

    Thanks again for everyone's input.

    What I am trying to figure out is why a Riva washer and ceramic bearings would fail in less than 30 hours. I thought I was upgrading to avoid this!

    Is there as much involved in this type of cleanup in the motor as there would be with the ceramic washers?

    You should PM Jerry, I am sure he is out for the day, but that doesn't look or sound correct (there I go again, Mr. Obvious).........whoa
