    Is anyone using the GPR RIVA one piece SS wear ring?

    Those of you who are using it, how did you find the fit? Is it worth the additional price? Is it true it seals with O-rings?
    Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    Regards,
    JP

    So the riva ss is the whole impeller housing with the ss wear ring built in?

    No it's one piece, solid. More expensive than OEM, but seems that you'll never replace it unless something terrible gets sucked through. I was curious how well the casting was. Tommy seems to like it; I think??

    I'm happy with mine. Seems to have held up a little better then the OEM, maybe diff hardness on the SS. I would only consider it if you ride in salt most of the time, OEM gets corrosion between the SS sleeve and the aluminum housing. Otherwise OEM is hard to beat.

    I'm mainly (so far) in salt, seems like a good choice then. I gather the tolerance is the same as OEM??

    Same tolerance. I went with one because I live on the coast and no matter how much I flushed the ski at the lake the wear ring would still buckle from corrosion. Mine is 4 or 5 years old and still holding strong. Like 300 hours of use here.

    Do you mean the ring isn't threaded? Did you attach nuts behind the plate?
