Rxt drive shaft 05/06 hull insert swap out
I have a 05 with what I believe is the skinny shaft I believe they swapped mid year
Do I need to change the hull insert to upgrade to the late 05 or 06 shaft?
Or just the boot and carbon seal?
If I do need to change the hull insert is it just a straight swap and epoxy it in or do I need to do fiber glass work?
How can I be sure exactly which shaft I have?
If I'm planning on running a speed freaks bellow band do I run the stock carbon seal?
Is a bearing seal better?
Lots of questions I know but I need answers to them all
I'm stuck and want to get my ski back on the water ASAP

Run the 06 shaft, hat, and clip. and the 05 bellows and carbon ring.
the hat will be bigger than the carbon seal but it works!
I don't know the answers to the other questions. some one else should chime in.

Do I need to change the hull insert to run the 06 shaft?
Biggest problem I have is I'm not sure which shaft I actually have... The manual and part fische isnt much help or I'm just not reading it right

The hull hole insert is too small to run the 06 shaft.

The 06 and up have a bigger carbon seal and bellows and hole.
So when u use the 06 shaft, hat, clip the hat will be larger than the original carbon seal but it still works.
I'm running this combination now on my ski.

the only difference between the 05 and 06 shaft is that the diameter where the hat sits is slightly bigger on the 06 shaft.
and the hat is bigger in outside diameter.

Thanks for your help guys
06 shaft clip hat , 05 bellow 05 carbon seal, don't need to change the 05 hull insert
05 Insert (in ski now standard) has a smaller hole but still fits the 06 fatter shaft ?........forgive the innuendo hahahha
Is this right?
