    Question Carbon Ring ?

    I would like to know, How do you check if your Carbon Ring is bad,or worn
    out?
    On a 05 RXP.
    And if it is bad? How hard is it to take out and put new one in..?

    First off, are you cavitating out of the hole? Do you get excessive amounts of water in the hull after a ride? If the answer to these questions are "no", then it is fine. If "yes" you need to pull the seat off during a ride, gun it and see if you see water spritzing out between the carbon ring and the metal floating ring on the drive shaft. Or, put the trailer in the water and make sure the ski is strapped down good in the front and back. Then gun it and see if you see water spritzing out between the carbon ring and the metal floating ring on the drive shaft.

    If it is bad, you need to drain the coolant, remove the c-clip under the floating ring (with the pump on the ski, prefereably with the shaft removal tool), remove the pump, remove the drive shaft and change the carbon ring. I would recommend replacing the c-clip and the rubber boot as well.
