    Intake Grate Seal

    I removed the intake grate on my 08 RXP-X today. I noticed a black sealant. What is that? anyone have any idea so I can put some back on there when I'm done.

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    I put just a touch back on. Not too heavy as that shit gets everywhere in a hurry....... Don't go crazy with it........ Blue loctite on the bolts. While you are down there, fill those ride plate holes and replace that stock grate with an R&D and you'll pick up 2 mph easy and it will settle down a bit.

    R&D Grate

    Is it a one for one swap or is there more work that needs to be done that?

    The riva grate is a direct bolt on. No modification necessary
