    wear rind 2nd life??

    Hi guy's!!
    A buddy of mine has a 2007 gtx 155. His pump bearing is loose and he has a good gauge on his wear ring. I heard somewhere that the ring could be flipped and have a 2nd life. is that true??

    Ideal would be to get a new one, but yes, flipping it around will do fine.

    Some dealers do it,and tell the customer they placed a new one.

    In fact, it is one of my friend ski and no he is not riding it because the lakes are still frozen. So it is time to put it back in shape to avoid doing it during summer.
