    Ride plate bolts

    I noticed this morning that I have studs holding my ride plate to the pump. The 12F has bolts that fit up into the recessed pockets, which is the way i think this one should be.

    The large washers and nuts don't appear to be "factory" style hardware and there is a recess in the plate under the washer.

    What do you guys have? This looks realy lame and I can't believe Kawi would do this outta the box.

    Heres the pics:

    oops yet another terminal case of headuptheass. Be sure to let the dealer know the proper way of removing ones head from ones rectum, Cross the legs, hold the nose and grunt real hard. the popping sound they will hear is the cranium leaving the rectum.

    The dealer is 50 miles away and the hardware store is only 3 miles

    I just wish people could get it right. Tired of averything having a defect in one way or another.

    I would contact the dealer and request the dealer setup charge refund if you paid one since they didn't do the work and that should be enough to pay for the fuel to return the boat and they can check it out and make sure everything else that was suppose to be done is done. Funny just for this reason when I purchase my new left over '08 last week one of the things I checked was to make sure the bolts were out since this has been posted before.

    Those are curb feelers. If you get near shallow water, they will alert you.
