    They are fine. we install an anode in them to help protect them. I change my xs cooler every 2 years weather it needs it or not

    in my 4 years of experience i would say the leak rate is about 3% of all coolers.

    I bet that is more down to manufacturer defect then corrosion.

    Over 3 years and 100+ hrs on mine. All salt water, flushed after every ride. I cleaned and tested it for leaks about a month ago. It's still in great condition.

    mine's probably just as old, with even more hours on it, and No problems at all. I ride salt 80% of the time, and just switched to a turbo with it.
