    Unhappy RXP X Ride plate

    My ride plate develops a leek some times, not when riding it never goes down in bottle level. But, When sitting in garage, the thing starts to leak a little, about 100ml a month,
    don't really want to go open loop as we use skis in salt water a lot and oil coolers don't like it,
    Ideas or options please.

    I've read about this before. I think its just a matter of pulling the ride plate off and resealing it. When its hot, everything expands and seals okay, but after its cooled down thats when you have the problems..

    Its is probably leaking from the top of the plate where all the little allen screws are at.
    When it gets cold the silicone applied under the screws shrinks and can cause a small leak.
    Get a flash light and look on the top of plate as you should have a trail of coolant coming from any screws that might be leaking.
    Can be easier to see with pump removed as well.

    +1, Pulled the pump and drain the coolant. Pull and reseal as many bolts with Ultra Black as you can get out. Just put the sealant under the head of the bolt. Let it sit for a couple days before adding coolant. This has fixed a leaking rideplate for me before. Its worth a try before pulling, sealing, and reinstalling the rideplate which is a PITA.
