    how many hours do you have?, they normally dont go bad for a while...

    best way to tell is fill the ski with water and see if it leaks out the driveshaft side...

    maybe you just got something in your pump for a few minutes, did you change your OEM to a Solas or anything, or is it stock?

    Have you got excessive water in your hull after a ride...if not the the carbon ring is okay. When it goes bad or get's pressed against with a 4" custom intake the water will come in like gangbusters. Cabon rings are usually good for 100+ hours. Just don't ever let any mods touch the black bellows.

    Yep, sounds good...if it were leaking it leaks a lot of water, not just a dribble. It happens so fast you can sink the ski...

    Your english is fine!!

    Good luck!!
