I have an 07 PWT XStar. Last winter I noticed one of my tips was cracked.

I work with some great welders and can get it fixed. I removed the three screws but found the tip was still on tight. I suspect it is as easy as some marine caulk but want to make sure before I start pulling it off.

How do I remove it safely. More importantly, how to I replace and ensure it is water tight?

There's a glue / caulk around the flange. be care when removing but prepare for some gel work. If it was me I'd remove the craked baffle in both tips

Thanks for the tip - no pun intended. I appreciate the warning to plan for an additional repair if I start this project. I am just getting my season started and really dont want to start with a major repair and a gel coat project so I may hold off on this one.
