    Red face Drive Shaft Damper

    Does anyone know if it is a bad idea to reinstall a driveshaft without it's plastic damper? If so, where do I get a replacement damper for my 2007 RXP's driveshaft? Any help would be much appreciated! TIA

    Your taking about the rubber piece in the middle of your driveshaft, Right? it acts as a Damper...to fill the "VOID" your driveshaft moves forward and rearward. if you lost it look for it at the inside hull of your ski. It's too big to go through the OEM drain plugs at the back They might be available at the Jerry's online store thru RIVA Racing.........good luck

    I

    I didn't lose it. It got tweaked when I had the shaft machined, now it won't stay on the shaft. I guess I need a replacement.

    I might be drunk at most times and probaly the town drunk in this Green Hulk Website......but for crying out loud! who machined your drive shaft with the rubber thingy on it

    What was machined from your drive shaft and what were your objectives. I get nervous when people talk about machining things.....means they are taking some materials out in small increments out of an OEM part......Scary

    in my honda, i left it out and the leaking caused my pump brgs to get water, rust and fall apart. Lessons learned.
