**** buyers beware **** stolen parts ****
Guys, a good friend of mine had his ski stripped of some parts making the ski not worth putting back together the night of August 6th. The ski was secured the following night but there was evidence they were back the next night to steal the rest.
We were waiting a little before posting anything to see if any of the parts would turn up but so far haven't come across anything so we figured to go ahead and post something so others can be on the lookout.
This could not have happened to a nicer guy.
He had ALL of his electronics including gauge, R&D controller, custom blue carbon side plastics and hood, custom glove box lid with silver carbon (bottom hinge was glued), seat with custom JetTrim seat cover stolen from his ski from the New Port Richey, FL area.
The side plastics were off my 06 so they were originally gold, then the face was painted blue (so the backs are still gold) and were hydro-dipped with carbon fiber, so they should easily be spotted.
The seat has a a custom JetTrim seat cover on it, exactly like mine (see pics) but with blue stitching, medium slip, and carbon fiber bottom. Design is not the normal design so it too should easily be spotted.
Appreciate if anyone spot these parts to let me know.
Thanks for your help,

Is it a 1200 or 1300? I have some leftover 1200 electronics and maybe some side fairings but they would have to be painted. He is welcome to them so just let me know.
Might have an extra seat that needs recovered as well. I'll look today.
I'll keep an eye out for those parts over here, going to be hard to hide and should pop up I would think.

It was a 1300. Thanks SO very much for the lending hand Duke and Mike. He had a couple of issues he was already a little frustrated with so this just put the nail in the coffin. I already tore the ski down and have been helping him part the ski out.
