Thread: Ski melted
07-01-2010, 08:36 AM #1
Has this happened to anyone? The ski is parked outdoors in the sun but has a ski cover and a car cover on top of it. I was shocked when I took off the covers to use it and saw this. You would think that they used better plastics. I've had 5 skis of different brands parked in the same spot for many years and this is the first time it happened.
It's a good thing the part is light and cheap at $39 though. Thanks for coming through, Jerry.

is it a Kawasaki ski cover ?
Reason I ask is if it was too tight across that area it wont help, your problem
even tho that screen shouldnt melt .
I have felt mine after sitting in 35 degree C for a few hrs and it does get slightly soft,
so imagine it under a cover with no breeze to cool and possible extra downward pressure

Here are some more pics.
I removed the whole hood for easier access.
I bought some roof insulation material to put in between the ski cover and the car cover. I'm sure this will work. (I hope)
At this point I noticed that the part where the handlebar grips meet the ski cover were melted also.
