    ride plate/intake grate installation

    Do you guys seal everything on the ride plate or do you just put a dab of sealant around the holes on the ride plate and intake grate? gpr1200.

    Well, do you seal the entire plate to the hull, as in put sealant in between the ride plate and hull.

    No. There is no need to do that. Just let it hang naked.

    And NO silicone on the intake grate either.

    And no silicone on your carburators either (hey, I'm on a roll).

    Hey wait just a minute. If you carbs are females wouldn't silicone make them bigger?

    so just bolt it all straight up into the hull is what your saying.
    Thanks and yes, silicone will make them bigger. They are only fake if you can't hold them or put your mouth on them.
