What would you do?
Just picked up my brand new 2011 FZS this weekend from a local dealership where my cottage is. Once I took the cover off and got it out in the sun, I noticed a spot on the left side near the back that looks to have had some damage and somebody patched it up. Problem is, they didn't do a good job matching the metalic paint. Here is a picture of it. I already left a voice mail for the marina, and I am waiting to speak with them. Makes me very upset when I spend that much on a brand new machine and it has this! What do you think they should do?

Get a new one or get them to throw in a 5 year warranty.

It looks like the paint could have just been dulled there a bit. It can happen in that area if you pull the ski with the cover on it. The wind whips across the cover and dulls the finish on certain areas like that one. Have you tried buffing it out to see if it shines up? If it is just dulled from the cover slapping against it in the wind, then it should shine right up with a good buffing pad and a minor swirl remover compound.

+1, It could be a wear mark. IMO with a brand new ski, the dealership should be the one to do any repair like that, just to be safe. You bought a NEW ski, you should receive it in NEW condition.

If it shines up and turns out to be a cover scuff, you can place a piece of 2" wide blue painters masking tape on the area to protect it in the future when you have longer tows. I carry a roll in the car since my cover does the same thing - although in a different area.
If it's actually shipping, assembly or showroom damage which the dealer has repaired - I'd insist on a new ski. Was the cover on the ski when you went to pick it up from the dealer?

If they are willing to guarantee or warranty the work then I would let them fix it.
