    Exclamation Get This Rust Off!!!

    G'day f

    Just need some advice on a problem i spotted when flushing and cleaning my ski. Its an rxt with 55 hrs on it, when i went to hose underneath I looked up the intake grate and noticed that the shaft that connects to the motor has rust all over it.

    Is this normal?? and whats the best way off getting this rust off?

    ALso I don't have many tools and not too mechanically minded.

    when u ride in salt water, it's normal and u'll wind up killing yourself before you are able to stop it from rusting.

    Just rinse everything off thoroughly after using it and you'll delay the rust process. It is going to take a long long time for the rust to cause a big problem though on the ski, so dont worry about it.

    On my ski i have a few spots of rust too and i ride in fresh water. This is normal and would be a hastle to take out just to clean the rust off.
