    Speaking from a Kawi perspective on stainless wear rings. I have replaced them in my pump because of an impeller bearing crash. They are cake to cut out. I also refurbed my own stock impeller by welding up the edges and machining it back down on a tool post ginder on my lathe. Worked tits. I set tight clearances that way.

    I had a Sea-Doo Speedster 200 and run stainless steel wear earrings in both Motors Express them in using a press I never had an issue either in the intercoastal or in the ocean I highly recommend them but everybody's got their own opinion

    Yes! It’s definitely worth doing on the boats. The boats use the same wear rings as the skis.

    I strongly recommend against a stainless steel ring. I tried it out on my ski and ran it for a few hours of ocean riding. Sand chewed it up bad and ruined my impeller. $190 part, ruined my impeller, and was impossible to remove so I had to have it machined out $$$. IMHO there needs to be a “fuse” in the pump and it shouldn’t be the impeller.
