Drive Shaft Bearing Carrier
Has anyone ever used a different brand set up on there Seadoo to eliminate the carbon seal?
I know this is the for the Polaris brand skis but my 785 pro uses one and it works great with out any problems for many hours of racing,
can I not cut my shaft down to the same size, or make a similar set up that will hold up in salt water?

I like it - thinking outside of the box. The Yamaha GPR has a similar bearing that might be a better fit for the driveshaft?

Rad4 or Skat carrier and ditch the bearings and use Oilite bushings machined to minimal clearance on the shaft..
Ask BeerDart how I know this.
Measure whichever carrier you have ID and get the correct OD bushing and then machine the ID to match the Shaft OD
BTW, I believe STSPerformance has a Rad4 carrier with the Oilite bushing installed and a few spare sizes for the RXP/T shaft for sale.

Yes but when they do u will notice a little water in the hull instead of a torn apart seal. We all know where that puts you lol
