    Riva grate question

    Guys:

    I replaced my stock RXP grate with a Riva toploader.

    There were no instructions with the grate, so I installed it the way I thought it should go.

    I have been reading about how others installed theirs and I see that they used a bed of silicone. I did not.

    So, I am going to the cabin this weekend (Where the ski is now), and am going to take off the grate and bed it in silicone.

    What are the sizes of the bolts that hold on the grate (So I bring the right tools).

    I know the front one is bigger than the rear three.

    Sizes of the bolts? Anyone,,,,,,,,,,,, anyone,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Bueller? Bueller?

    Bring between 12mm and 16mm sockets. I can't remember exactly but I know its between that range.

    Also bring some Permatex black silicone.

    I did both, you can also make them smooth on both ends...
    fill in the crack between the rideplate and the intake grate.
