Looking for stick on mats for FX SHO
This has been a nightmare. I decided to replace my original mats because the had a few minor stains on them. I figured it would be a cheap EASY upgrade. Wrong! After about 3 days work I got the old mats off. I ordered new hydroturf mats and the are glue on. I bought the glue the recommended and put it on lightly but it made the mats Grow! Once the glue dried the mats had stretched and did not line up right anymore. So I ripped them back off and spent another solid day removing the glue. Well now I am wanting to buy Stick on mats but can't find anyone to make them for the SHO. Are the OEM mats stick on or glue on? I'm not going through the glue deal again.

OEM Yamaha gun-whale mats are 3M adhesive backed and super easy to install. I wish I would have known you had a problem with the Hydro's. I have a roll of the 3M membrane double sided tape that is used on the factory mats I could have sent you. This stuff will hold a house on it's foundation as you can tell from removing the old mats.

Thanks for the offer CCW. I would have never imagined it would have been such a pita. The factory mats weren't even in bad shape. I am just super picky and like everything perfect. Argh.... i'm gonna order the oem mats in the AM. Is there a different year I can order them for and get black instead of Grey. I have an 08 FX SHO.

Get the Hydroturf with the 3M adhesive on them. You have to choose the PSA option before placing them in your cart. It costs a few extra bucks but so so worth it.

Id do Blacktip Jetsport mats in the wishbone pattern.

I didn't realize you could special order straight from Hydroturf and get the 3m stick on. I just placed the order through them. Black Diamond pattern.
