Pump tunnel reinforcement
Hi I have a question for the FZR I am installing the Pump tunnel reinforcement kit and I am looking down into the ski at the tunnel and I see the two peace hull comes right up to the tunnel do I have to cut that away or does this reinforcement kit go over the second part of the hull on the bottom of the ski ? I hear the sho is different, the inside hull does not go right up to the tunnel, any help would be appreciated.

yes you will have to trim the hull liner in that area your talking about so the reinforcement can sit flush, put the reinforcement over the tunnel and mark where you need to cut with a sharpie, i use a dremel to cut into the hull liner and just pry it up with a flat head screwdriver, those pieces are not bonded to the bottom part of the hull so they will pop right up.
and if you havent removed the oem plastic reinforcement pieces, heres a tip to remove them in one piece, heat them up with a heat gun then wedge some flat head screwdrivers between the tunnel and oem reinforcement, continue to apply heat evenly and keep wedging in the screwdrivers untill it just pops off.
hope this helps.
if you have any other questions post here or pm me for my #.
also six10 epoxy is what you want to use to glue it in, it must be an epoxy based glue.

No, use a 2 part epoxy. I used something called SuperBond (Link Below) and worked very well and clean up was easy. Many others have used Six10 epoxy with very good success.
