    Impeller maintenance or replace

    Off a stock RXT-215. 50 hrs. I'm planning on removing the impeller (once I receive the removal tool) to further inspect and dress the leading edge to remove the dings. The leading edge seems pretty thin but I don't know how thin they are when new. How does the condition of this impeller look to you more experienced guys out there?

    Looks a bit far gone to do a home "Dress up" job... IMHO
    Personally i would consider that one ready for a trip to Impros.

    Impros appears to be the most common place to send them within this forum, Here is a link: http://impros.com/store/index.php/se...er-repair.html .
    SBT Does them as well http://www.shopsbt.com/jet-ski-impel...LLER_TEMP.html ... I have used reman props from both... The cool thing about SBT is they will send you an already reconditioned one to install if they have one in stock, so you don't have a lot of downtime, and you just send the core in after you swap it. You don't have to wait for 2 way shipping that way. SBT is also $20 cheaper because Impros will charge you $20 because it's a 4 blade. If it's a stock ski, stock prop, no plans to mod, i would actually use SBT.

    I got the impeller off. I don't see any numbers stamped on it anywhere. How do I know what size it is? Not to mention I don't know what any of the numbers would mean anyway.. As far as I know it is the stock impeller off an 07 RXT.

    I emailed Speedfreeks Racing yesterday with a question regarding repair. No reply as of yet.
