    coupler dampner question

    My 98 xl 1200 Dampener is missing 2 of the small prongs , does anyone think this will be an issue? I am re aligning my motor ( vibration and I must have screwed up cause it's off after 10 hrs and may have always been off ? ) and have it out
    pic = not mine but note the small teeth mine is missing 2 in a row

    this is an inexpensive part so why not just replace it

    My 97 has been through 5 or so since 2002. I am very anal about it and when I see a finger laying in the hull, I do change it.

    Crash, stand up move on offering to send him one for free!

    Definately replace it. The imbalance will only accelerate the wear on the other fingers.

    Thanks guys! I wasn't sure about the small fingers because not all couplers implement them! and Phillip I know they aren't to $$ but I always cringe when I have a ski out of commission while waiting on parts
    Crash thanks a ton! Z
