    RXP-X 260 R&D Intake Grate Tore off !

    My R&D Intake Grate was Tore off the other day the front bolt and captive nut is missing and the three rear ones are still bolted up with a small part of the grate still bolted to it ,
    Is this a common problem Please ? ,I had removed the grate a few days before but i am 100% sure all the bolts where tight ,Is there a mod to stop this happening again or was i just unlucky there seams to no damage to the hull,
    Thanks

    I've never heard of this problem before. I am running an R&D grate on my ski now.

    I also have the R&D grate. did you fit the grate to the ski or just bolt it on? Did you use any sealer when installing?

    I am not 100% sure what you mean but i made sure the both surfaces were clean and just bolted it up with no sealant , I have fitted and removed intake grates many times before without any problems

    Maybe you torque it too much?

    The first time i removed the stock grate the front bolt had taken out the metal insert with it as well that should be stuck in the hull. Brought it to the dealer and it was fixed so keep an eye on it.

    Glad nothing really bad happened. All kinds of bad things can happen when you loose a grate.
