    Just wondering, what was wrong with the 03 clutch design. It seemed like there were no washers to explode then.

    They slipped early and burnt out.

    With washers you have 4 friction surfaces (each side of the two washers)

    So basically it was a way of allowing longer periods of time between rebuilds? It just so happened that they picked the wrong washer material at first correct?

    Yep that is correct. I'd say the ceramic washers was a bad choice in material

    Hmmmm....lil bit confused, I just bought the steel washers and had them installed on my 03 GTX SC about 2 weeks ago, was this a smart thing to do considering they didn't even have washers to begin with??? I was at around 9-9.5 lbs on the slip test w/ the torque wrench and we just added the washers.

    If you added washers to your 03 GTX then your GTX has had a supercharger rebuild some time in it's past to one of the more modern washer type clutches.

    Yep your right it was rebuilt about 2 months after I bought it, the SC I got back was painted black but bits of red paint are showing thru...just a little confused on if this will benefit my ski's supercharger long term or not.

    I must be lucky with my 03 as I have always used Castrol Syntec and have 155 hours as of yesterday and still pull 7,650 with a full tank. I never jump waves or let the hull get out of the water so maybe thats why?

    New to Greenhulk.net so I'm a first time post-er. So here it goes.

    Reading this post brings some relief. I've read and heard about the ceramic washers breaking and the possibility of damaging an engine. So if I read it correctly a 2003 GTX SC does not have ceramics washers in the SC. So I worried myself for nothing. No need to worry about broken clutch pieces damaging my engine. I have a 2003 GTX SC but have no issues with it. I do "cruise" when I ride and can count twice when I had it WOT. (I know why did I buy the SC). But the problem I should worry about is the clutch slipping?

    Thanks.
