    What's everyone using for RE sealant?

    Just wanted to see what everyone was using as a sealant/silicone when doing the RE blockoffs? I used some 3M 5200 on another ski and have some left over and thought about using that. It has held up VERY well on the GP1300r. I have seen where some have used the Permatex Right Stuff but thought the 3M might work just as well. Thanks for any input.

    I think 5200 is overkill. I put 5200 fast cure on my grate and im praying that i never have to take it off . I would use something thats removable like right stuff or ultra black. Thats just me.

    It was on the front part so the rear can still come out.

    My brother got a tube of the concreate epoxy that they use to epoxy rebar into concrete from work. So if they do pull out ill be ready to epoxy them back in.

    HILTI says that when the epoxy between the rebar and concreate drys(7min) the rebar will break before the epoxy joint will. So im hoping it will do the trick if it comes down to it.

    I guess if I do use the 5200 on the RE's I wouldn't have to worry about any leaks or anything. I used the Right Stuff on my Intake grate bolts and the stuff has already come off after a weekend of riding.

    Meeper, thanks for the dealer advice. I dropped it off yesterday and they are already done. Nice service.
