    Removing the cone

    Well this is what Solas has to say. Are they covering their ass or is it what they found out after years of development?

    Hello Edwin,

    Thanks for writing to us.

    One of the function of the Cone is to protect the rear bearing on the hub. Remove the Cone will expose the bearing directly to sea water. This will expedite the damage to the rear bearing.

    Subject: cone


    What will happen if I run my solas impeller on my 2006 GPR1300 jet ski
    without the nose cone? A few of the guys are doing it but I am wondering
    what can happen in the long run?
    Thanks
    Edwin

    then leave it on. You will just be a little slower than others.

    But I might not be messing up the inside of my pump like others.

    I agree with Abbott if you guys are worried about these potential problems then either leave the cones on or put them back on.

    All I know is Abbott's and mine are off

    I think what Abbott and I are saying to get the max speeds of of these ski's you will have to comprize some thing. Guys like us who very rarely ride in saltwater have less to worry about. Plus appling antiseize to inpeller shaft will help to keep the corrizon down.
