    Ride Plate sealant

    What do you guys use to seal your ride plates. Is 100% silicone sealant like you can get at Lowes good enough?

    I would at least use RTV sealant (found at any auto store...ie. Permatex) if not actual flange sealant like "Loctite 5900"...which is what Polaris uses stock.

    3M 5200 or 4200 marine sealant it is tough as nails and will not blow-out.

    I always use clear RTV silicone (permatex). It works great and is not too diffcult to get off.
