    Intake Grate bolts

    So I was checking my ski out before I take it out tomorrow and I noticed one of the rear intake grate bolts is missing. Should this be a cause of concern for me or should I just replace it/loctite it/torque per the manual and not worry about it? Also does anyone recommend a place to buy replacement bolts so I don't have to go to the stealership?

    Thanks for all the help guys

    Thanks for the quick response. Yeah I was planning on replacing it before I go out tomorrow. Should I be worried that more will come out in the future or was this just a sporadic thing?

    Take one of the three remaining bolts out and bring it to Lowes/Home Depot. They'll probably have a matching stainless steel bolt. Just make sure you have the right length. On my ski (GPR), the bolts towards the bow are shorter than the bolts towards the stern... not sure if it's like this for every ski.

    Torque, loctite (or permatex), and try McMaster-Car online or see if a Fastenal dealer is local to you for the bolts.
