    Are these what you are looking for?

    Check the service manual carefully. I think the Genesis uses TWO bumpers on one end of the drive shaft, and one on the other end.

    When I didn't want to spend $9 shipping for a .20$ part.
    I went to an auto parts store,cars use a lot of different rubber bumpers on body parts,with a little triming ,worked great.

    Check inside the engine coupler and impeller. Sometimes the bumper will stick inside them when removing the driveshaft.

    A trick some people do with seadoo's is use dimes instead, Superglue I think 5 dimes together and to the shaft where the bumpers would go to get the correct spacing and never worry about destroying rubber nipples again. Should work on polaris's too.

    dimes dont allow any give,i think manufactures put a rubber bumper in there for a reason,so the driveshaft wont bind or be in compression.use the teflon or rubber bumpers ,if nothing else a chunk of rubber cut the right length can be put in coupler ,it doesnt have to have the little tit that goes in shaft>Marvin
