    Should I??

    I have a SS wear ring....Solas prop....on my ski with mods in sig....Should I shell out the 300 bucks for the triple bearing mod? is it worth it?? Will I hurt anything with out it? Basically I am asking do I really NEED it, or is it just a want option?? Thanks!

    You want it!

    Your options are to run the pump without it and risk your $220 impeller grinding into your $240 SS wear ring.

    AJ,

    I would say you should shell out the $$ especially since you are getting into the mods. Granted, this will not give you extra RPM's, HP, or mph, but it is a very good piece of insurance and stability. Just look at what happend to me when my single bearing went out. I almost lost my entire motor.

    By what's on his signature, he doesn't even have a Stage 1.

    - Why does he need the triple bearing mod?

    - Did BRP do such a bad job on the pump that it needs to be replaced?

    Just wondering as i see everybody pushing this mod and would like to know what makes the stock one bad.

    Has there been multiple failures by forum members on the stock pump?

    So this is a GTX specific problem?

    How about the other platforms?
