    The bottom is from a 2010 style setup. My buds 10' RXP-X had that screw on type shaft. BRP went back to the older style since then, from what I heard...

    there is 2 rxt drive shafts that have that thread on them.
    the 09 rxtx, longer of the two,
    and the S3 2010/2009 rxt/iS or the 215 09
    rxp, rxpx and gti different again

    You have a 09 RXT-X shaft.

    if the o/a lengths are the same
    put on the retainer and c-clip and measure from the pto end of the shaft to the flat carbon seal side of the retainer, then screw on the retainer on the rxt shaft and measure the same thing, if they're close it will work.
    you will also need to change to the ball bearing bellow on the pto.
    be sure to run the prop to shaft seal as those shafts corrode real fast

    OK thanks, 09 rxt ..... so should I use it or get the old style?
    and I see that the 09 rear is turned down so the prop cap/seal fits loose...it there a fix?

    Not sure about the 09 shafts but 2010 tx shafts were failing(splines) on the impeller end of the shaft. That's why most of us upgraded or had it replaced under warranty.
