Questions with pictures attached
Alright. I decided to throw on the intake grate today since I really have nothing to do and it's cold outside so that means no riding
I noticed a few things when pulling off the OEM grate. In the first pic it shows a bit of surface rust on the prop shaft. Is this normal? Also the actual prop looks like theres some rust on it. Theres less than 40 hours on the ski and Im suprised that the prop and shaft are in this condition.
Second and third pics are of the sealant used from the factory. Now I may not be the brightest person in the world but you think they could have done a better job. If this was my work I would be fired. Im think of taking out all of the sealent I can get to and re-applying it SMOOTHLY. One one of the pics you can see how much threadlock they used, came off a bit clumpy.
How many of you re-applied the sealent?
Can I WD-40 the prop and shaft?

Mine has some surface rust on the shaft. I just spray the BRP lube on it, WD-40 will work fine, when I clean it up after riding. If it's just surface rust then it's nothing to worry abt IMO.

I've heard a LOT of complaining about that lately, I'll be cleaning mine up this spring also...

This stuff works great.

i'd take a razor blade to that silicone to clean it up before you go tearing it apart to redo it...
