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...

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.
