Rad4 driveshaft seals for - RXP/RXP-X/RXT/RXT-X/GTX
All the units I had and was able to sell at reduced costs are sold. If you wish to purchase a Rad4 Seal please contact Kevin at http://www.skimd.co.nz/index.php and he will get you what you need.
Rad4 Racing driveshaft seal is the original reliable bearing carrier that replaces the problematic carbon seal which causes holeshot cavitation and water intrusion into the hull. These are designed specifically for your ski, therefore two different seals are offered.
RXP / RXP-X - $190 shipped. (middle one in pic)
RXT / RXT-X / GTX - $220 shipped. (outer one in pic)
I have these on hand and are ready for immediate shipping from the US (Florida). To place your order please send me a PM. I can accept PayPal and will not charge any additional fees.
Driveshaft will need to be slightly machined at a local machine shop according to the directions that will be sent with your seal. Machine work is simple and should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. Below is a pic of my RXT driveshaft before and after. A couple pumps of grease after each ride is required to provide a long lasting seal life.
Here is a write up I did on the installation of the Rad4 seal on my RXT. I love it and works great!!
Update September 22, 2009:
I have one more seal left that will fit either the RXT, RXT-X, or GTX and then I will no longer be selling these so now is your chance to grab the last one at wholesale price!! Normal retail price is $250.
$205 shipped to the US!!
First one that sends payment gets it.

I love my seal...
I've been using the Rad 4 / RXP seal for the last 59 hours. This seal is an awesome replacement for the carbon seal, which started leaking water into my ski. I grease it every outing, and haven't had any noticeable cavitation.

It also solved my cavitation problem due to the carbon seal setup. I even had cavitation burns on my impeller so this seal will also save my impeller from further damage. Not to mention it eliminated the water coming into my hull. My carbon seal was even brand new and was properly lined up. Definitely a great addition to my ski.

Why do you think some people have had trouble getting a hose clamp to stay on where it mates up to the hull ?

How much to get the drive shaft machined? I don't really know of anywhere in my area that does that kind of work.

I can have your driveshaft machined if you would like. The cost they charge is $75. You can send me your driveshaft and I will send it back along with the new seal. The guy that machined my driveshaft is the one that does this work http://www.xmetalworks.com/ They do sick nice work.

I only have 1 seal that will fit the RXP, RXP-X left and 4 seals that will fit the RXT, RXT-X, GTX left at these low introductory prices. Once these are gone the prices will go back to the original price.
