My drive is 2 months old and just noticed a crack in it today. Hopefully the replacement is the new design.

I just bought a 2017 slayer 13 yesterday. My propel drive doesn't have the four bolts it only had two. Did the dealer give my the wrong drive?

The change to a 4 bolt design was an inline change that took place earlier this year so some 2017's will still come with the two bolt design.

Ok thanks. Mine was assembled in March. I'm going to take all precautions prevent any cracking on my drive.

Just noticed my propel drive is cracked.  Will Native honor warranty for second owner?  How much is a replacement drive?

The warranty literature that comes with a new kayak states the warranty is for two years and is not transferable from the original owner, however there have been some instances where second owners have had some success with a resolve for a repair or exchange with a refurbished drive at a lower cost than new. This would be something you would need to bring in and discuss with a local native retailer. A brand new drive is about $925.

Is there anyway that the people with a pre-2017's drive can order just the new updated top portion of the drive which contains the thwart tube, clamp and upper gear assembly. I didn't know that they were able to separate until watching the propel drive fully stripped found on https://www.youtube....8&v=nbjdhKkZeYY. Skip to 15:30 to see exactly what I am talking about. It would be nice to know that people that do have cracked clamps can just order a new upper unit instead of a buying a brand new drive or having someone weld the crack.

Unfortunately the drive housing sections are not available as replacement parts.
