    RXP-X what is used from factory to fill gap rideplate +hull

    I have 2 RXP-Xs and one of them is fine but the other seems that certain pieces of the silicone that is in between the ride plat and hull gap is missing? does anyone know what they use ( the grey stuff) and what can i use to fix?

    3M 5200 is what the factory uses, many here(including myself) use Permatex Ultra Black in its place with no ill affects.

    I would clean it up some, trying to get the part that are not adhered real well, and fill it in. You aren't going to get it all out even if you remove the rideplate.

    that urethane windshield adhesive/sealer stuff is dang near permanant. I used it on an old ski and believe I could take all the rideplate bolts out and it would never come off.

    SD uses Loctite 5900, you can find all OEM parts @ epc.brp.com under products select SeaDoo.
