    I read where a lot of people do not use any cone. Do some reading and see what the draw backs would be. If you decide to take it off, I would remove the grate and cut the boot off with a knife.

    I agree. Pull the pump.

    Hi Frankie,

    Just to be clear... did the OEM nose cone "unscrew" and slide up the drive shaft? The reason I ask, there is no o-ring on the stock rubber nose cone. There is, however, an o-ring an an after-market Solas (green) nose cone.

    If the OEM nose cone has traveled up the shaft you can, 1. Remove the grate, slide it back, and painstakingly "re-screw" it back into the impeller. Or, 2. Remove the pump, slide it off the shaft, and forever rid yourself of this problem again.

    Others will disagree...

    Frankie, I now realize what you are talking about. The OEM nose cone is made up of two parts, and the forward plastic collar could be referred to as an o-ring.

    Though the picture is a bit blurry, it appears that the nose cone is toast. If you want to ride this weekend I wouldn't think twice about removing the nose cone entirely (via grate removal/knife extraction, or pump removal/nose cone extraction). Then, if salt water intrusion plays a part, replace it when time allows. Enjoying the ski is the most important thing... preventive maintenance can wait a couple of weeks.

    BTW... fresh water riders tend to leave them off, salt water riders tend to leave them on... hence my "others will disagree" comment.

    well, you're under warranty. some dealers might give you some sh!t about the rubber not being on there as it does keep water from washing out the grease on the splines.
    in that itty bitty pic you posted it looks like the rubber impeller boot is deformed, wouldn't do any good to re-install it if it is.
