    Small piece broken on R&D aquavein

    Can some jb weld be molded to this to fix it? I don't see anymore damage anywhere. It can out the box like this used. Piece wasn't in the box to put back on to weld it. Any concerns on the intake?

    Looks like it was packed pretty poorly and took a drop on the corner to me but if you couldn't find the piece in the box it could have happened before packing, did the box have any damage? I wouldn't use it though, ask for a refund from the seller or put in a claim with UPS (which will be denied if there's no box damage and the piece is missing).

    Any decent welder can add material to that. If you don't know anyone who can do it send it my way and ill fix it. Is just an aluminum casting.

    of all the parts on a ski you can band aid the intake grate is a part I personally would not screw with.... Im to old to go flying at 70mph because of a hundred bucks.

    Yamaha guys appear to have had good luck with them.

    I haven't heard many complaints in recent years for the one for the FZR, but they were a nightmare on the GPR's! We only dealt with it because the 800 grate was the fastest option.
