Thread: Pump Seal Kit

  1. #1

    Pump Seal Kit

    I was wondering what has to be removed besides the intake grate to install the pump seal kit on a gp1300r.

    Does the kit make a noticable difference?

    Honestly, if your this far, do the tunnel reinforcment as well! These tunnels crack/pump shoe in rear wants to pull down. Its a safety feature that everyone should do.

    I Agree with Woody.

    As for the pump plug kit (PPK), the pump shoe needs to be removed to install the plugs.

    Here are the instructions:

    It helps with cavitation because it fill the voids in the pump shoe. those voids in the pump shoe can induce cavitation due to trapped air.
    the ten individually molded cavity plugs that are designed to fill the large cavity air pockets in the OEM pump shoe.
    By plugging these cavities completely and resealing the shoe with 4200/5200, your pump cavity will be 100% free of any possible air pockets or leaks that promote cavitation.

    What do you guys think of just filling the voids with 4200? Then letting it dry until sealing the shoe to the hull?

    Could you fill them with hot glue? Its get hard and shouldn't blow out. Just a thought
