    Question about drive shaft

    what is the benefit of the bellow band that goes over the carbon ring? As I have the drive shaf out and have to replace the carbon ring and have seen in the online store the bellow band so was curious what the best benefit was for having it? Also when installing that does it just go right over the new carbon ring??

    thanks again

    The bellow band goes over the bellow which houses the carbon seal. It restricts the movement (swelling and shrinking) of the bellow reducing cavitation. If you are replacing the carbon seal, replace the bellow, carbon seal, AND the c clip. You must change the c clip. Or you run the risk of it coming off and sinking. The bellow band is a great addition to any ski ( that it is made for). I have had mine for 6 months now and I can definitely tell the difference. Worth the money IMO!
