I just got my prop and was wondering if anyone else had a vibration in the steering or a kinda clunking feel it didnt do it with the old prop. i heard from the correct craft dealing somthing about shaving the rudder was wondering if anyone else heard of that.

its a 2000 xstar btw

The new prop may not be seated correctly. Far as I know shaving the rudder is to correct the pull on the steering wheel, not correct a vibration...

i have the same prop on the same boat and haven't experienced any vibration. the only difference you should notice is that you have a ton more torque and you'll be riding at a significantly higher rpm.

If it didn't do that before and you're using a brand new prop, Sparky is right. It's not seated properly. The square key rides in a channel. Usually the channel has a curved transition area. If the key rides up that curve, it will cause the prop not to seat evenly and hence the vibration. I'm pretty sure it doesn't have much to do with the rudder if the vibration wasn't there before.

I have the 1234 (oposite turn) and love it. No vibration. I'll third the seating. Have it checked/check the fit.
