    Has anyone replaced a VX110 Ride Plate bolt retainers?

    Has anyone replaced the Ride Plate bolt retainers that are epoxied to the rear hull floor? I need to replace one that has damaged threads. If so how did you loosen the retainer without damaging the hull.

    In my GPR hull they were held by this green goop. All I had to do was use a heat gun until the goop changed color. Then took a chisel to the goop.

    I just replaced a bracket on my 09 fzs last week.Broke a bolt in it. Wasn't bad at all.

    Took rear of ski apart, all the exhaust crap. used a heat gun to get the bracket warm, Put a bolt into bracket and tapped with a rubber mallet to pop one side free. Reheated bracket, reached in and grabbed the side that was loose and pulled easy and it popped free with glue intact.

    It did leave the sealant from inside the bracket on the hull. i used a screwdriver to lightly scrape away the sealant. it comes off in big pieces. It will leave some small stuff.

    I sprayed the small stuff with industrial goof off(any solvent will work) and scraped with screwdriver and wiped with rag.

    i lightly sanded the area with 60 grit paper. Lightly sanded the new bracket. Used 3m 5200 fast cure to fill hex's in the bracket and the space between them. Put new bracket in place. Be generous with the 5200. The excess will squeeze out.

    I let set up for 20 min, then bolted on ride plate. Let cure for 3 days and re-tightened plate to spec.
