    HELP!!!!!

    I was just in the garage looking under my ski before going to the cottage this weekend and what I found made me sick. My intake grate has let go. The center hole in the back has broken and the two plugs on either side have come out with the bolts. Anything I can do for a quick fix just to get it in the water this weekend? How do I put the plugs back in?

    Same thing happened to mine. If only the middle hole of the intake grate let go and not the screw you can maybe get a washer and a nut that will fit there and can probably go out like that. My friend did that and he has ridden like that for a while..not sure the exact hours.

    I have already fitted a washer and a bolt. It may cost me a bit of speed but at least I can use it until I come up with a proper fix. Will the R&D girdle work or not because my two bolt plugs have come out?

    Ran across a similar problem with my rxt this spring when I changed the intake grate. Gus13letter graciously sent me some threaded inserts from PPG to get me back on the water. I still have 2 left, and if you want them, I would be more than happy to ship them to you, just pm me your address!
