    09 fzr r&d intake grate

    going to change my intake grate and my ride plate soon, my question is, is the ride plate and the intake grate glued to the hull with silicone? i had changed the intake grate on honda r12x and it was guled with silicone, but not so sure on the yamaha? if they are indeed gules with silicone, what silicone do you use when you put it back together?

    I suggest using 3M 4200 FC on the mating surfaces of the intake grate. Any silicone you use around the edges to seal it will just blow out.

    The intake grate instructions from Riva and R&D recommend silicone on the mating surfaces.

    Pump shoe kit is simple.. One set fills the gap on the casting of the grate and the other goes into the gap on the pump. You might have to trim the material abit to get it in all the way.
