Removing Rideplate RXP
Ok how much force does it take to get a rideplate off a ski for the first time?
Also just making sure, but can someone list all the bolts/fitting/esc that I should have removed before trying to pry that thing off?
I'm pretty sure I have everything right but would hate to make a stupid mistake and really mess something up.
Thanks in advance,

The six on the rideplate, the 4 on the intake great, and the two pieces were the hoses go in the inside of the hull to the rideplate. Just get a jack and put it between the rideplate and the hull with the pump off. Use a piece of wood to not damage the hull. Use a knife or razor blade to cut some of the silicon as you go jacking the plate.
Good luck and i hope this helps

There was a thread on this not very long ago and there were pics of everything. I just got mine off last night and sent it to Jim so all i did was remove the ride plate bolts, intage grate bolts, and disconeected the hoses from inside. btw i drained it before i started anything. Then i just put my jack and piece of wood where the pump was and started pumping, it came off eventually with no damage to anything.
