    Who sells custom pitched impellers?

    The factory wear ring killed my Solar 13/20 impeller. The ring swelled up so bad the ski would not start. I had to cut off the wear ring around the impeller and it got tore up so I am going to replace it.

    Any shop recommendations on buying a new impeller, I want a custom pitch 13/22 or 13/24.

    Impros would be one of the first places I would go shopping.

    If you can find it, I recommend installing the R&D dual washer kit (with some anti-seize compound) behind the impeller. Makes future impeller removal MUCH easier.

    R&D recently closed their doors, but you might find a dual washer kit in stock somewhere.

    I installed a stainless wear ring on my RXP and would not do it again. It's called a wear ring for a reason, the stock cheap ($) plastic one takes the beating and can save a lot of wear on your impeller when you ingest stones or crud. $40 for a new ring, easy to replace verses $250-300 for an impeller ($100-150 refresh from Impros), and when the stainless wear ring (can't remember what I paid) gets galled your probably going to have to cut it out. Had to freeze the ring and heat the pump to initially install, just wasn't worth it for me.

    The Yamaha design is bad. Aluminum with thin stainless wear ring (insert). The aluminum corrodes and pushes the ring up into the impeller. When you run your ski it will cut the impeller and wear ring. You will see rust spots. This ski sat for a month and the wear ring swelled up.

    I have a Riva SS wear ring. I am going to replace my Solas 13/20 and bend it myself. This ski was running 91mph. I am going to adjust the cams and bend the prop for more speed.

    I will do the transom mod and real seal since I am this far into it.

    I am pretty sure you were in the thread where he said he has pulled all R&D listings because they closed their doors last month.

    Is the wear ring a warranty item?
