    Best wear ring replacement?

    My buddy sucked up a rock on a 2006 RXT today. Are people still doing SS wear rings or is there something new? What about for an RXP-X as well, any different?

    After using up my oem ring I went with SS wear ring....over 120 hrs on it....but I don't run in shallow water. The odd stick usually ends as salad...no harm to the ski.

    the OEM wear rings were improved a couple of years ago, I have almost 100 hours on one and it looks great. no way would I go stainless with my ski.

    I disagree! If you are getting that much edge wear over time then you have a pump bearing problem.

    With a plastic wear ring performance drops off considerably over a very short time on highly modified skis.

    I have the same experience as you. SS is the way to go. Yamaha and Kawi use SS liners. Sea Doo should also!

    i agree, i tried a SS ring with brand new guts in the pump and the prop just doesnt last, those blades are always going to flex and hit the wear ring you can even hear it rubbing on the hose, ting ting ting....

    i used the new OE ring and its been holding up really well so far many hours with 2rude on it.
