    Strange colourway

    Just noticed the back panel (under seat grab rail) of my 2012 XT is painted yellow from the factory?!?!?

    I have never seen another like this. It has not been aftermarket painted. How strange

    Anyone ever seen this before (FROM THE FACTORY) or have I bought a bastard child?

    That looks sweet!

    Did you buy it new or used?

    I bought it used. I only just noticed the odd colour. I am 99% sure it's not aftermarket painted. I used to use a Porsche bodyshop to have plastic parts painted for prototypes at my work and they NEVER achieved this level of finish on plastic. I'm not convinced that it isn't actually moulded in this colour plastic.

    I'm worried that it signifies a strange detuned export model made specifically for some unpronounceable island in the middle of the Indian Ocean!

    I know, I'm gonna convert it to rollers. It's a Respo trailer (respo.se). Not keen on bunks.

    Maybe you've got a BETTER early pre-production model with some extra performance factory goodies hidden inside.

    That color means your ski has 20+ more hp...

    If it was orange you'd have 30+ hp..

    Looks nice..

    You should concentrate on leveling the ski out and getting the bow roller above the eye hook on the ski. That way the strap goes under the roller and holds the ski down
