    Carbon ring options?

    I had a slight water leak last summer and was thinking of installing a new carbon ring over the winter, but Jerry, I think you mentioned a different option from Les? Can you add more details?

    there's a few options

    1. stock carbon seal setup

    2. rotax racing sealed driveshaft bearing kit (requires having the driveshaft machined down

    3. les cooke sealed driveshaft bearing kit (slides onto stock driveshaft, no machining required)

    4. split driveshaft from rotax racing ($$$$$$$$$)

    5. split driveshaft that jerry is currently waiting on from Daniel i believe that will work with stock pump

    options 2 and 3 require that you grease the zerk fitting on the seal before every useage...


    les cooke seal pictured below::: rotax seal is the same but as mentioned requires a machined driveshaft, which is the "lightweight" driveshaft you may have seen advertised elsewhere. minimally lighter, but for the purpose of being able to run this seal.

    1 more post and i'll stop

    Mitch Newlin (mitch411rxp) has one of the rotax racing driveshaft seals and machined driveshafts for sale that he's parting out from his race RXP if you were interested in that

    With the rotax racing and les seals you have to be carefull when removing the pump as the shaft some times comes out the motor and you loose a bit of oil and can some times be a pain to get the shaft back in the motor.

    I know me personally.. i'm all about install it and leave it alone! ... the last thing i really wanna deal with is getting a grease gun down into the already cluttered hull each and everytime i go riding... however, i do realize that top performance has it's trade-offs from time to time

    i've hard grease it every 2 hours, and i've heard grease it before each use.... what is REQUIRED, not suggested... because i ride 200 miles at a time for 6 hours pushing the machine to it's limits. I don't want to learn on a trip that it needed grease and my bearings siezed and i'm sinking now or something

    Jerry... will there be a split driveshaft setup available by retail to the public that utilizes the stock pump, or will that be a one-off item that a few people have?
