    Whats everyones opinion on a stainless steel wear ring?

    I was thinking of adding a stainless steel wear ring to my 07 rxp, is it worth the money for one?

    Thanks

    I like them better than plastic

    Rocks and debries will now ruin your impeller $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ instead of
    the "wear ring".

    I ALWAYS ADVISE the greaseing of the tunnal components so to ease debries threw it. Bill

    I would stay with the plastic ring. After I've sucked up a rock or debris from time to time (almost unavoidable) the ring gives and takes the damage.

    I'd rather change out a $60 plastic ring then a $300 impeller.

    How about your muffler bearing, do you grease it to?

    Jerry posted a while back how every year he builds up the edges of his blades due to wearing from the ring...

    I've heard of other guys actually just filling in the plastic rings with a filler and re using...


    Personally i like the idea of the "wear" ring wearing... but there is something to be said about the performance of the stainless..

    I just started thinking about this. Either way if you ingest nasty junk it'll wreck a S.S. impeller and ring just like the fibre one and stock impelller. I guess it's just a question of how much you want to spend when you ingest damaging junk and wreck the ring and impeller.
