2012 GTR Corroded Rideplate
Picked up a ski on the weekend (2012 GTR 215) with 60 hours on the clock. Jetski warehouse at the gold coast did a presale check and it ran fine.
Yesterday I took the ski out for a ride, ran it in eco mode, all went fine no issues. Kicked it up to touring and had a temp warning. The coolant had leaked out
The ride plate was inspected by JSW and it's found to have had corrosion on one side where the coolant pipe runs through. The ski was last serviced at 53 hours.
Should something like this happen if the ski doesn't live in water and should this be picked up by routine maintenance? I've been quoted just shy of $900 for a fix

I have over 100hrs, no issues with corrosion. If this was your first ride after you bought it from them I would raise hell. Now they want $900 to fix it?? The fittings are a type of plastic shouldnt corrode. The ride plate is aluminum shouldnt rust either. Did you actually see the area affected or just going by what they told you? Any warrenty left on the ski?

any aluminum Part unprotected with Paint and such, exposure to salt water will corrode.

And the plate shouldn't corrode because it has a sacrificial anode on it.
