    Kawasaki ultra 260x intake grate silicone

    Hi guys, Iíve recently purchased a 2010 ultra 260x second hand and have noticed that the intake grate was siliconed on. I had to remove it as I got a rope stuck in there. It was pretty hard to remove the grate but got it in the end. Iíve got it all back together now but am wondering if I should re silicone it. Anyone have any ideas why it would have been siliconed in the first place? Cheers

    ok let's take the boat to the dealer before you kill yourself.
    not to be mean but if that great come off at speed you will get hurt........... very hurt
    you must silicone it back on and loc tight the screws torx to spec
    the silicon severs 2 purposes to stop air leaks in the pump region and help hold it in place

    NO it doesn't need to be siliconed on ………….
    As long as you apply some medium Loctite and torque to spec they wont come off !!
    the ride plate should be sealed on as it is the entry point to air to reach the intake grate easily ………
    having been on the Ultra 250/260/300/310 since 2007 and never sealed a grate EVER I can tell you it will be 100% fine for you ...

    The pump shoe and tunnel can be cleaned up and re sealed if you like but like sirbreaksalot said, none of the grates were sealed from factory.

    If you remove the spark plugs, it will be easier to turn the shaft backwards and may make it easier to get the rope out.

    I've actually done this and was able to remove the rope unharmed.
