    2019 Carbon seals bad on 2 Fish Pro's with 13 hours!

    Fish pro now has 13 hours on it and I just pulled the deck off to spray some Fluid Film to prevent corrsion as I mainly use this in salt water and saw this. Looks like a 5 year old PWC! After I saw this on mine I pulled my buddy's off and his looked worse with only 10 hours on his. We don't run them out of the water for than 30-45 seconds when flushing them.

    Take it back to your dealer for to replace your carbon seal, this has happened to other skis, dont ride your ski till you get it fixed

    I just pulled the deck of my buddy's and it looks the same if not worse. How the freak is this possible out first payments where due yesterday.....LOL. His has like 10 hours. We never run them out of the water. Only keep it running with the rinse hose for maybe 30-45 seconds.

    This isn't an unusual problem as seen in this thread. The root cause is usually poor engine alignment. I believe some assembly process at the factory went out of control.

    I tool a video real quick before I left for work. I don't see any vibration except for at startup. Since these are fishing machines we stop and start them probably at least 10-15 times per outing.

    My dealer just got back to me after I sent them the pictures. I guess there was a bad batch of carbon rings and there was a TSB on it along with loose intake grate bolts.

    Well I picked the 2 Fish Pro's up from the dealer today with new Carbon Seals installed. The old ones with 13 hours where smoked the new seals seem 1/8 inch longer. Also the Fucking scratched the shit out of the IBR assemble on both PWC's so BS! We use these 99% in salt water and if left as is will corrode

    My carbon seal failed on my 2019 GTR 230 at 10 hours too, that must be the point at which the faulty seals tend to go bad. My dealer replaced under warranty and I've been fine, have about 45 hours on it now (all in one season). Lots of start/stop for wake/tow sports too.
