    yes it is the original OEM inserts on the 2003 that had the big problem

    the updated OEM ones will never pull through because of the long flat surface that rests against the hull

    if you look at the R&D inserts they would never spin but they will not provide the same support as the OEM ones (the support bar connecting the 2 inserts does not rest against the hull like the new OEM design)

    I don't know which inserts Pete had pull through

    I had the R&D replacements and they still pulled through. Replaced them with the Updated Yamaha replacements problem solved.

    I used the Island Racing flat bars withs holes tapped in for both the rideplate & the pumpshoe on my wifes 2000.They are about 1-1/2 inch wide and run from hole to hole.These give the most support of all,the hull is sandwiched between the plate/shoe and bar stock.

    Update to the new style oem. Soon or later the old style inserts
    will pull through the pump shoe and ride plate. Both happen to me,
    but I caught it just in time. As you can see, Pete was not that
    lucky on his ride plate.
