    Broken Intake Grate Bolts

    I pulled my RXP out of the water today to wash and wax it. Once I got the ski out I noticed the intake grate was hanging down by the ride plate. It had snapped off one of the rear bolts head off and pulled the spud out of the pump support. I did a search and did not see any info. Has any one else had this problem? Here is a pic of the pulled out spud.

    Yes, do a search for a "girdle". This is a common problem. You need the R&D grate girdle kit to fix it for good. Check out this link, its about halfway down.

    I would recommend the speedfreaks pump shoe insert also, on the same page.
