    Anyway one of them blew the wear ring. Yea we know bad design...
    question is??? What are you giys replacing them with? Rivas? Stainless? On my 300 i like the stock but the spark I believe would benifit from the Riva... anyway your thoughts?

    I replace my wear ring with the OEM one due to the type of water I ride in.
    if your kids are riding it having the OEM one might not be a bad idea in case they suck stuff up

    Regarding the IBR, might seem strange but check your battery connection. Sometimes an iffy battery connection can affect the IBR while the rest of the ski works fine.

    Thanks jerry and edge. Yes sir I am aware of battery voltage and IBR. Low volts and IBR will most likely throw code
