    OPAS question

    I have an 05 RXT...I just want to keep my OPAS in the tucked up position...how do I do that? When im flying down the river at WOT I see my OPAS are dragging. But ive checked my screens and no clogs anywhere...

    so the inside diameter needs to be 1/4 inch, the piece needs to be 2 inches long, and the 3/4 stands for the outside diameter? Am i even close?

    3/4 inch PVC cut at 2 inches long. Cut a 1/4 inch groove out of the length so it will be able to "snap" over your OPAS rod.

    Hope that helps.

    except it's 1/2" PVC that you use. has 1/2" ID and 3/4" OD, cut a slot , I used a 4" grinder, took like a minute to slot both pieces

    i guess it'll all work. I used 3/4" PVC when i did it on two skis. 1/2" might be more exact, but good luck ever getting them off without cracking them off or grinding them off. it was hard enough to get the 3/4" pieces off when it came time for OPAS block offs

    If you have a problem spreading open the tubing, then just warm it up a little either in very Hot water for a few minutes or use a heat gun on low...PR...

    very easy to get the 1/2" off, just disassemble and pull the shaft out of the PVC.
