    Unhappy Carbon Ring wear ? (2013 RXT260)

    I know this topic has been discussed much but after seeing a new Doo on the morning news sunk for hours in NYC I wanted to gather some knowledge.
    -so I checked my ski to find a Heavy stripe of dust at only 17 hours. (pic carbXX)
    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/06/...after-9-hours/

    Question 1: For those of you that have aligned a 2013 RXT, can it be done right with motor mount shims alone?
    -if yes, what shim totals are you seeing ? (L/R/C)

    Question 2: Are you finding any help from BRP or your dealer in advancing parts for the DIY ? or exchanging after they're removed ?

    Question 3: Will BRP step up and issue a recall for all these units being screwy ? Have they issued a TSB on the alignment ?

    I told You about doing Jimmy's recently... his was way out, and leaking- same ski as Yours. Got it straight with shims- I think only a mm or 2 more than they recommend on the rears.

    are you sure thats dust from the carbon ring and not aluminum rubbing into the hull?
    I ask because that gray color looks like the issue I had, my custom exhaust was rubbing on the hull, and leaving grey dust like that.
    I have seen black dust from the carbon ring when it hits water and the mud just slings out and created a straight line.
    the pics look gray, but thats just from the pics.

    Thats definatly carbon ring dust.. I recently purchased a rxpx 2013 .. 5 hrs on the ski I hit an oyster bed.. well i pulled it off and of course somthing stuck in pump.. i throttled it out and continued to ride for 2 weekends till i noticed a huge mess of carbon dust in the hull.. my first thought was out of alignment. So I checked the alignment and it was absolutely perfect. When I throttled the ski to get stuff out of pump it created cavitation and in turned trash was caught in my carbon seal.. which burnt it up. Just a heads up its not always out of alignment (as mine was dead nuts on)

    True, but if You've got it apart You may as well check it... if You can get the tool.

    Seems I've been seeing more out of alignment than not lately.

    THIS WAS A BIG ISSUE FOR ME.put alignment tool on and engine slightly needed to go to the right. but seadoo mechanic and with new seal will be OK.

    apparently seadoo have realsed a NEW REVISED CARBON RING approx 3 wks ago for this model jet ski and mine with IS. (NEW SEAL HAS LARGER INNER DIAMETRE- but less sealing face? smart idea seadoo?)

    anyone else heard about this ?!

ID:	334115this is mine. after he pushed driveshaft in with a tiny amount of force. says he can put shims under engine mounts directly but not under engine mount bracket as those bolts are very tight and we will get 'in a whole world of hurt which we dont need to be in' his words exactly. so now i have a LARGE REPAIR bill cause all the water leaked in and ruined lots!!

    dmp-your alignment looks pretty close...but a shim is needed.
    The "tech" was totally wrong about the shim placement. (as I'm sure you know now).

    -sorry to hear about your loss.

    Has BRP released a TSB (Tech Service Bulletin) so the tech's know to look ???
    -or to look for the carbon stripe ??
