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)
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)

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 ?!

this 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 ??
