GPR Wear Ring question
On my conversion I noticed I had a pretty large clearance between the prop and wear ring so I need to get another. My question is, what are some opinions on buying another stock metal one vs one that has been machined to accept the plastic ones? I've heard a few good things about the plastic ones but also heard just as much bad stuff. Wondering what everyones experiences are and what some of the faster guys are running?
Thanks in advance for any responses

I use a WSM replacement housing and ring. Can't say anything bad about it.

i can have old housings bored to fit the IR wear rings. I know TJ has a pile of them, and I do too. OEM works well, but is pricy. anotehr option is to have impros install a thicker stainless liner. Not sure of the cost, but it's probably around what a new OEM unt costs. benefit is that the liner is much thicker and won't bubble like the stocker.

I use a wear ring that has the plastic liner.
I personally like the thought of my wear ring being sacrificial and not the impeller.
The plastic liner has a tighter fit also for clearance.

sold! Plastic liner it is. Thats a good point Billy about having the wear ring take the hit before the impeller.
mikey can I send it to you to have done? just pm me where to send it and how much. Thanks bro!

I gotta talk to TJ about the ones he has. If i have 6-10 done at a time it should be cheaper than the $100 I paid for 1. already have the jig and dimentions too.

let me know, I have a few to be done also if the price gets cheaper. But is that 100 plus the plastic wear ring you paid?

yeah joe, but that was for 1. it's all about setup time with machine shops. still cheaper than buying from anywhere else tho. last time I looked a modded housing and wear ring was around $190.
going to get a quote for 10 and see what happens.

I have a used Island modded liner coming off a boat for sale. Will come with an extra plastic ring too

i didn't think there were wear rings available for the GPR stock pumps...I have two 2006 gp1300rs and I'd love to know if theres something available for them. Sorry to hijack the thread.
