The ceramic washers have had a problem like this in the jetskis for a few years now. In 06 they increased the size of the SC shaft. It seems to have helped some but people are still playing it safe and swapping their fragile ceramic washers out for metal ones.
The ceramic washers desinagrate on failure if they slip too much. These tiny pieces of ceramic material get in the engine through the oiling system. Front and rear oil pumps have to be taken apart and cleaned if the washers fail. $$$
The metal washers don't have this problem. If they start to slip, they can be shimmed and retorqed.
The following is a link to a jetski performance site that handles parts, including washers for the 4 tech motors. Jetski and boat share the same motors.
Here's what the clutch looks like on the SC.

I'm just not going to take the chance and will put metal washers in my SC this Spring before the season starts.
I know the warranty covers the stock clutch but it's just the amount of time to be without if it would go out. It's already a short season in Minnesota, no need to be broke down during what there is.
