    rxp 215 intake grate ripped off!!

    The front bolt to the hull is missing but the threads look fine, the center bolt in the back is still there. The two inserts to the plastic pump support are gone along with some plastic that tore away. I need to know if I can just install a girdle and by-pass even replacing the pump support and just attach the back of the new grate to the girdle? This was a riva grate, I'm thinking of switching to r&d w/ girdle kit.

    welcome to the GH
    well you found out why BRP upgraded the "X" skis
    yours is worse than my was
    at a minimum you need a new "shoe", brp calls it a pump support
    yours is missing a big piece
    to upgrade to X you will need a ride plate, grate, drive shaft and of course a shoe

    does a new shoe come with new inserts for the grate to screw into? I looked at the diagram and the inserts are not listed. I really didn't want to get into taking off the ride plate but if it's necessary then I guess I don't have a choice.

    This is a view from the back or front? How much am I going to have to tear apart just to change out the shoe and install a new grate. I want to go with a girdle anyway to prevent from happening again.

    Thanks for your help, I guess I'll be ordering a new shoe along with the grate.
