    Stainless wear rings...

    I see from the store that there are now 3 stainless wear rings available - Skat, R&D and Riva.

    Apart from the price does anyone know of any noticeable differences between the 3?

    Very good question, I've never used an SS wear ring, just changed out the stock ones whenever they got used. I'd like to know too !!!
    Has anyone had a chance to look at each of them to compare construction as well as performance ??

    ok, everybody is saying that plastic is better as when you pick up a rock, it will keep from chewing up the impeller. Well my viewpoint after my recent incident, once you sacrifice the ring, you sacrificed the pump. With a stainless, you might have chewed up impeller at least you can get home. Anybody has any experience on chewing up something with stainless steel ring?

    Go stainless , it just spit it out ... Depends on size , this effects all skis regardless .

    You notice it more because the spark liner is set back not in the pump as such .

    Did SeaDoo make a mistake with the spark and pump design. The pump is a the round part before, during and after the impeller. In the case of the traditional BRP pump, the liner sits inside the pump around the impeller. In the spark, the same plastic part that people call the wear ring, is really an easily replaceable part of the pump. After my incident, that part of the pump was gone.

    So I am beginning to wonder if should have been made of thicker plastic to hold to issues like mine or go back to the plastic inside and steal outside. Looks like I am going stainless.
