    Front 'bumper' removal?

    Not sure how others feel, but the front 'bumpers' on the newer Yamahas really catch my eye ... I think they really are ugly and I wondered if there was any way to remove them/cut the top part off, or? Maybe its just me, but I think they really detract from the looks of the top deck and wondered if there was any way to eliminate them ...

    No, not planning on getting one now ... its all about the money. I still have the RXP, my Glastron CVX20 jetboat, and I would need to sell one ... and I like them both. If I had piles of money and time, maybe ... I do like the FZR/S and the mods and potential, just don't use my toys enough as it is ... but I love to see what is going on with them. I just would have to hack off the rubber bumpers somehow ...

    I never really left the dark side IMO ... have had three Yamis and still enjoy my brother's GPR (was mine). I have zero brand loyalty and hate 'brand' pissing matches ... all skis have good and bad points, ain't none that are perfect!

    Now im just thinking out loud here. And I may be wrong. But would the rub rails and nose piece from a VX fit on the FZ's???????????? VX doesnt have the "sharks teeth" on them up at the front.

    Is Leaders in Lansing or Kazoo? Heck, if I did grab it, it would likely come back to you modded ... I can't resist mods ... it would be fun to try to find some place to ride this summer possibly, I would enjoy taking a spin on it.
