    Get Les Cookes seal, its better IMO. You have to grease it everytime you ride so there is allot more maint involved but you will get zero cavitation issues from it and no leaks.

    Im not sure on the rotax seal but with Les's you dont have to machine the driveshaft.

    REC rider I wouldnt run 1 the maint is a pain if you ride allot and if its not looked after it will fail!!

    I run 1 in my RXP but I have to due to its setup and the hull,I dont run 1 on my weekend fun ski, also if you do get 1 you need to use very high quality grease to help protect it from corrosion ect ect.

    The RR racing needle brgs are too small in diameter and coil bind after very little use....(10 hours) Even when greased every hour. Keep what you have! The consequences are SINKING and a destroyed boot.
