Intake Pump Sealing
I am going to install my R & D Seal Kit soon and am researching what all I am supposed to do but I am having trouble finding the info.
I see the Seal Kit pieces go inside the intake grate holes like a puzzle and it's better to coat them with some silicone but what about the intake grate itself? I see a lot of general coments about 4200 and 5200 but can't see exactly where this is being used and what exactly needs to be done.
And what about the Pump Shoe?
I used the search tool but couldn't find what I was looking for . Thought I saw something on here once...
All this for the FZS.
Thanks in advance for the help.

This is what I found on Riva's website...I'm getting ready to order and install a grate myself!
Hope this helps...

I should have taken pictures, but I've been busy getting ready for my trip, but here's what I did for my Riva intake grate install:
Remove Stock Intake Grate, 2 10mm bolts and 4 12mm bolts.
Clean hull surface and bolt holes to remove dirt, old sealant etc. I use Mineral spirits and it works well. Also I cleaned/wiped down the new Intake Grate with cleaner to make sure its ready to go.
Take the Pump Seal kit pieces, 12 total. 10 go into the Intake grate itself and 2 go into the pump to seal it. I used 5200 fast cure on each of the 10 pieces and put a coating around the inside of each piece. Put each piece into the corresponding hole and wipe the excess sealant away.
Take the 2 pump seal pieces, apply 5200 to the back of each and put each piece into the holes on the inside of the pump (below the shaft/impeller).
Once the pieces are set in the intake grate, apply 4200 to the top layer of the grate, around the top surface of the "flat" areas around the 4 12mm bolt holes and then on the flat surface where the 10mm bolt holes are.
Apply 242/blue loctite to the 6 bolts and place the new Grate into the tunnel and tighten down the bolts. Wipe away any excess sealant and you should be good to go. Very easy.

I use the Right Stuff to seal it. You can buy it at Pep Boys. Works quick.
