    No not really that bad, remove handle bars and cover, remove 4 bolts for cover and unplug display and pull right off. I would recommend resealing the display

    I got access to where the wires go to the back of the display. There is a rubber grommet that appears to seal it. Should I remove that and coat it with 5100 and pop it back in place? Then coat the outside with 5100 all around the wires?

    Edit: That is the only opening I see. Unless there are screws under the rubber seal around the edge of the display.

    Yes, put sealant all around the rubber plug, then put it back into the display. Then put sealant all over the wires where they enter the rubber sleeves. It will look like crap, but it keeps the water out.

    Use the Fast Cure sealant, which only takes a full day to cure. The standard takes a WEEK.

    Could you send me a link to the exact type of sealant you recommend? I am heading to the store shortly.

    Should I use the 5200 or the Loctite stuff. I will be installing the triple pisser kit soon and need the proper sealant for that too.
    Edit: I forgot to add the pic.

    I have used black RTV many times and it has ways done the job. I guess for marine use and under water fittings, like the pisser fittings, something stronger is recommended. I am afraid to use the 5200 because I heard it is almost impossible to get off and can ruin whatever it is applied to when trying to remove it. Like fiberglass for example. I don't have any experience using it but most people here swear by it.

    Yeah, 5200 will pull fiberglass apart before you break the sealant lol. For sealing the gauge, rtv is more than fine.


    Sorry, missed the tripple pisser thing, really if you drill a close fit hole, you shouldnt need much/any sealant on the thru hull fittings since they are above the water line. If you feel froggy you could put a little dab of whatever flavor or non permanent sealant on the backside when you thread the retainer nut on.

    That makes sense that black RTV should more than suffice for the gauge sealing. Hell, it has lasted the last 17 years with no sealant.

    I actually just found this in my pile of random silicone, epoxy, glue, etc. I think this will work perfectly for the gauge.
