Aftermarket grates for 2012 Challenger 180?
Posted this on another forum but didnt get many replies:
We have been searching all over the net for an aftermarket or a rock grate for the 2012 Challenger and no luck. Called sea doo, the customer service rep barely spoke english and didn't know what a rock grate or intake grate was.
A large sea doo dealers parts dept said no rock grate option from factory and to look on the internet.
What are the better manufacturers of grates? I looked at Solas but can not find one for the 2012 year. I put a solas impeller after the last ring got torn up.
Already on the 2nd probably will need a 3rd soon wear ring. Changing them is not that hard, but there has to be a way to go out on the water without sucking something up pretty much every time.
I have to pull out the pump tonight to remove what looks like a couple of sticks that are stuck on the sharp edges of the impeller and will not come loose.
Any help would be appreciated. Going 5 miles an hour after sucking something up or getting towed by a friend kinda sucks in a boat with 14 hours on it.
Below is what I found stuck on the imp after I took it apart:

Go to stainless steel wear ring, buy on this site. Don't run engine in less than 9 ft
