    i hope is covered by warranty. It was not much of a wave and it should not have came off that easy. I ripped off mirrors and other parts. Punching through an 8 footer. And had the seat blow off my gpr 1200
    and sink the ski. Going to riva tomorrow and talk to alex. I told him the hood was a weak point. That's why i put the mirror block off's on

    yea i would think it would be covered since it was the hood. Seadoo at the time changed the bracket that held the hood on from plastic to stainless after it wacked me in the face full throttle on a turn. Let them kniw it hit you in the face when it came off. Goodluck

    I took it to them today and they will see if yamaha will good faith it.
    Rob at riva service said he well do what he can. Yamaha dont warranty body parts. After the first year. It only has 50 hrs on it. And no i couldn'tsay it hit me. I was there in person. Good idea though.
