    Where to buy impeller?

    So I sucked up a decent size rock and it got wedged between the impeller and the wear ring.. couple of nicks on the edges of the impeller I think I might have lost 2 mph up top. I was wondering how much a new one would be and how hard it would be too replace?

    Its the impeller pitch. First number is the leading edge, second number is the trailing edge. If you ski is stock, then you want to buy an OEM yamaha prop from your VXR.

    Not the r&d replacement? is oem cheaper? I imagine not at the stealership but maybe somewhere online?

    buy a skat trak or solas concord 13/19 and you will all set, it will be the same pitch as OEM and a better impeller

    the pictures are pretty cool.. saw the solas impeller mishap - isolated issue or is this common?

    If you are staying stock and just want a better prop I'd suggest a 12/17 or 13/17 Skat Swirl.
