    00 GP1200R Cavitation issue

    Hello, have a nice little cavitation issue, wanted opinions. Wear ring looks good, new impeller on order, been reading about pump liners and pump seal kit. I had planned on just resealing with black RTV silicone. What do you recommend me to do?

    For the money I would just buy the ppk, I would use 3m 4200 or 5200 fast cure caulk... Bare minimum I think I would use the right caulk and fill the voids with caulk (instead of the ppk pieces)

    Thanks stl, btw what's is so special about the adhesive you recommend? Just figured since I'm a freshwater guy, the rtv would be okay, but if you think otherwise I will be getting the 4200 or 5200. Thanks!!!

    RTV not that strong of an adhesive. You'll blow it all out. I use 3m 5200. Sand all the pieces down flat, put a good amount of 5200 all over the pieces and put it back together.
