Changing Carbon seal
I'm getting ready to change my carbon seal before riding season here starts. I haven't ever had any problems with mine but since the ski has 200 hrs on it, I figure better be safe than sorry. So my question is, What all is necessary to change out other than the obvious carbon ring. And who all is running the bellow band and is it worth it?

ok where do you get the rubber o rings and what size. What about the hose clamps, I was thinking new hose clamps might hold a little tighter.

The OEM clamps are pretty good.
If they appear to be in good working order no need to replace, but that's your choice.
Also I have replaced several hats and this part does not seem to wear.
I measured a few used ones with a new one and they were identical. Jme
The two parts that wear the most are carbon ring and accordion boot looses pressure.

Carbon seal, boot, o rings, bellow band and clamps. I havent replaced the hat/collar either. Cut the old bellow band out with a utility knife or razor blade... Makes driveshaft removal easy and you are replacing it anyway.

I can't believe you guys haven't mentioned getting a new driveshaft "bumper or plug" and **C-CLIP**!!!!
Those c-clips WILL cause you to SINK if you don't replace it! I just bought 5 of them just so i can replace it anytime I pull the driveshaft!
Edit: and multiple driveshaft plugs since they tear everytime you yank the driveshaft out.
