    Did Rhaas make you buy his kits? He supports the sport by giving back, and offering bolt on kits for folks who don't want to fabricate. I personally will always use OEM bearings over anything he uses in his setups. I had a talk with him about the bearings at Daytona last year.

    I would love to see your hacked up JS!

    The bearing and seal diameters lined up if you did this with a 550sx shaft? If so, that's good to know. When I put a SX driveline in my ski, I used an adaptor plate between the hull and SX mount. The bearing and seal diameter was enough off that I had to have it extended on the shaft by spray welding and grinding. It would have been nice being able to avoid that.

    I agree- taking a fight against Robin / Rhaas, particularly for stupid reasons, is not going to win you any support on here. He's one of the few guys on here who made a total life change to pursue his passion and help others out with that same passion. Given what's involved in that mount I'm not sure what the profit is, but having bought one, it's worth every dollar. Having gone the clap trap/ fab it yourself route, the Rhaas mount is elegant and a quality item. Super easy to drop right in and use. If it's not something for you, or is too pricey, then yea make one yourself and stop crying about it.

    Also given Robin's background, everything is engineered and manufactured as best the item can be. They are parts I myself would design and build if I had the resources. And I'm a mechanical design engineer for an aerospace company with 12 years experience.

    Sarcasm doesn't come off well with type.

    On another note about the 550 pumps
    Our liners are done and should be in the store mid January
    Full stainless liners so no bubbling at all. The last one you will ever have to buy

    Izitwet and Camasaki

    Iím putting a SX pump in my 90 440 but really donít want to spend that much on the Rhaas bearing. I did some research on modding the stock one and even started to grind on my boat to make it fit but got scared and quit. How thick is that fiberglass that Iím grinding on? Iím scared Iím going to get into the foam and ruin the boat.

    Don't know, cough up the cash and do it right.
    Hate to see a factory rear exhaust hull get chopped up to avoid spending a hundred bucks.

    That’s the way I’m leaning right now, you guys just made it sound like it was a more common thing to do then I thought so I figured I’d ask.
