    Quick question about installing intake grate on gp1200

    Searching the forum has just made me more confused, i thought it was simple, put a little silicone on the intake grate and bolt it down, using red loc tite on the bolts.. but there is suggestions of using something other then silicone, can someone clear up what i should use, and if there is anything else i need to do.. thank you guys

    Intake grate is R&D dual bar, installing on 99 gp1200

    I would not suggest "RED" on the bolts...."Blue" is plenty and red can be very difficult to get apart and will likely snap the 8mm bolts off in the pump tunnel. I suggest 4200 3M fast cure for the best results. You should also pull the pump out so you can get the runners up the way up to the wear ring. This will provide the best results.

    Ok i got the blue, and the 3m, now about pulling the pump so i can get the runners up all the way up to the wear ring? this will be my first time messing with anything not engine related on my ski... is there a tutorial on this or should i try to look in the manual

ID:	203533So i got the grate off, i did notice something on the housing, i took a pic... also the aftermarket grate does not line up perfect to the housing in the front, there is a gap, is this normal ?

    if it's an R&D it's more than likely twisted. they have a great strike rate for poor quality.
    tunnel looks sealed well from pic, just run the silicone sealant into that bead and you should be right
