    RXP-X Wear Ring Question

    I recently purchased a new OEM wear ring for my RXP-X on-line and when I had a good look at it I noticed a few subtle differences between it and the one I took out of my pump.
    First the material seems to be almost twice as dense and therefore noticibly heavier. It measures out at 1.5mm thicker and .5mm shorter.
    I also noticed that the exterior finish is very poor and has a number of noticible flat spots as if mold cast badly and it does not have the concentric machining marks on the exterior or interior surface like my stock one does.
    I'm concerned that if I put it in my pump that it will get marked up by the impeller and start my cavitation situation all over again.
    Has anyone experienced this with an OEM wear ring?

    Who did you purchase it from? The last one I got looked just like the one I was replacing.

    Wear Ring Question

    I bought it off a GH member.
    I just spoke with the local dealer and he advises that there are aftermarket wear rings out there.
    Who makes aftermarket wearings? Does this sound like one?
    Anybody ever used one successfully?

    That sounds like a aftermarket one to me. I wouldn't use it on a high performance ski. If you are looking for top speed and holeshot. They may work okay on a GTI or something, but not a RXP, RXPX. JMO.

    The OEM ring is uniform and has small grooves on both sides from being machined to specs I believe.

    This is one thing I always use a OEM for.

    The one on the left is the OEM the one on the right is junk to me. I have one like the right one new in a box, if you want to pay the shipping.
