03 GP1300R impeller/housing information
Bought this used last year and after pulling what was left of the cat out of the exhaust and installing a D-plate it ran "ok", top speed was ok but low speed was terrible. I basicly had to wait on the ski to build up some speed before nailing the throttle. I did some reading and learned about the impeller/ring clearance problem, so today I pulled it apart and found a mess!
Looks like someones had this thing posing as a wood chipper!!!! The impeller is destroyed, at least I found my problem I guess.
My question is this, im new to PWC's and need your input here. While I've got this thing apart is there anything I need to do or watch for?
Bearings are good (smooth and minimal end play)
Impeller is trashed
wear ring looks ok but will be replaced
Ride plate nuts are spinning (will be updating the backing nut)
What impeller and ring should I be ordering????

One thing I did notice is the clearance between the impellar and the housing doesnt look that bad. I haven't measured it with feeler gauges yet but will do that tomorrow night. It just doesnt look like it would be bad enough to cause this takeoff problem. I'm hoping it is though!
