When to replace wear ring?
Is there a time limit, after x amount of hours, in when to replace a wear ring? I'm putting im my stage 1 kit, the ring has about 55 hours on it. there are no chunks missing or gouges. There is an area that is rubbed down alittle thats from the impeller spining. I guess it hard to be more descriptive. what do you think

It really depends on the water you ride in and how much stuff gets sucked in there as far as how long they last. A visual inspection serves very well to check wear.
If I was going w/ a stage 1 and my boat had 55 hrs. I would run a new one just to be sure I was getting the max potential out of the mods.

Changed mine at 65hrs and man... what a difference. You definitely can tell when you throw a new one in there..

you measure the clearance and replace when it is out of spec. Do a search for the numbers.

Just put in a new one, $50 well spent.

Stock radial clearance is .006". The spec from Sea-Doo says to replace at .014". I replaced mine at .030" and it was night-and-day.

Thanks for the input. I went out to day and bought a new wear ring. I know my gap was greater than .030" I noticed the difference more when i was putting it together. With the old ring the prop fell out and the new ring i had to jiggle the prop to get it to slide it.
