    06 fx140 cruiser ride plate question

    Hello all,

    hope this is posted in the right area. I recently acquired an 06 Yamaha fx140 cruiser needing some work. I got it partially disassembled so I'm trying to figure it all out going back together. Im installing new ride plate brackets and my question is, when I bolt up the ride plate, is any sealant necessary between the ride plate and hull? To me, it seems like it would be appropriate but there doesn't appear to be any residue there. Also, I've read mixed opinions on using sealant on the impeller housing when installing. Can anyone confirm that as well? Thank you

    hi there, and welcome to the forum well for the ride plate you dont need any sealant, But the metal spacer between the hull and rideplate you can lightly apply some sealant there just to hold it in place so installing the ride plate will be much easier.

    I don't think the 06 had a spacer

    Thanks for all the input. I had read somewhere that it was necessary to use sealant on anything that mates to the hull, but not required the impeller housing. Anyone have any experience with 3m 5200? That's what I was planning on using for the ride plate brackets and wondering how long I really need to let it set up before putting the ski in the water.
