    wear ring question

    On a 1200-1300 gpr wear ring, what causes them to get out of round slightly?

    Also, where is the best place to buy one, or what is a machine shop charging to make it take the plastic ones?

    thanks REG

    the water gets inside between the housing and the SS liner - corrosion, etc.

    This was a very common issue especially in salt water boats.

    I just bought a new OEM one for $162 shipped. It was from the Ebay Riva store. I'm not sure if they have anymore but there are different options.

    1) OEM new for $250
    2) Buy one from Jim's online store
    3) search classifieds on Greenhulk & pwctoday.com and hope to find a clean one
    4) buy a new one-piece wear ring from Riva for around $300 (it's all one piece and should last much longer.
    5) go to www.impros.com and check out their services. personally i don't have any experience with them, but it's an option.


    The plastic sleeve may be a good option since you ride in salt.

    I don't ride in salt, but the ski came from someone who did.

    I now have a new one on its way, thanks Water Worx.

    But, for my existing one, does anyone have the proper spec to have it machined for a plastic ring? Us SEADOO guys are hard to change...plastic saves you after a moment of poor judgement...
