    If you aren't leaking, or cavitating at holeshot it should last a long time. They are pretty thick, and really don't wear much, but they can get hot and crack, or wear un-evenly.

    I had a SC clutch come apart 24 hours ago, and they are taking a look into the engine again , I`m getting way to much metal in the oil filter pleats for 3 consecutive oil services one worse than the other and the next. So something is def grinding away. I should know more in about another week, if I`m lucky!?...PR...

    I haven`t seen it yet, but my tech says it is wearing normally. For the price, I though it was another preventative measure while the machine was in a bazzillion pieces ...bc it was disturbed to remove the drive shaft to remove rear cover. That would really suck if I had a leak comes springtime when re-commisioning the ski ...PR...

    if you have been a good boy and not ran it for a long time on the flush hose, I would say leave it alone.

    GTXX: I never run it to long, but I have seen dealers run the ski for minutes without hose hook-ups and rev the crap out of it, can`t say for sure if this has happened to mine, but hey you never know now do ya!?...

    I`m just hoping for that nothing else goes wrong with this POS after all the BS i`ve been thru with it...PR...
