    thanks i was turning 8200 with a 14/19 so would 14/17 insrease revs to high or was the high revs due to a worn wear ring i had the 14/19 setback they took 3mm off the back of the prop so it picks up water earlier and reduces revsthen they repitched it to 14/20i dont no whether u do this mod in the states they said it would give me 8000 revs so is the prop to big for me to turn with my mods sorry for all the ? jerry thanks mark

    A worn wearring lowers the rpm's.
    So the wearring didn't bring the rpm's up for sure.

    it may and i dont know for sure .

    .but my logical mind says rps would come up..due to the water being able to slide by the ends of the prop..not being forced out of the rear..causing less thrust...worn out ringshould cause a loss in speed but less resistance to the motor causing rpm to come up so logically thinking ..the results he had should be correct

    +1 i have a 155hp sportster 150 and a worn ring is ALOT more noticable on my boat then on the ski's. With a worn ring it was all over the limiter no way will it lower the rpms.
