Jet Ski Covers...HELP???
My 05 SXR 800 and 04 Ultra 150 covers are becoming very brittle. They have small tears in them here and there but hasnt really bothered me until now as they will be outside stored as before when inside a garage or on a covered boat lift. So I need to replace them with new covers. I am very particular to the fit of a aftermarket cover. I hate a non OEM cover that is all loose and doesnt fit snug. I have found a new OEM Kawasaki made SXR cover but all OEM Ultras are gone or used. I have read that Jet Tribe are great but then again awful, so not sure about them. Covercraft makes some but haven't found any feedback on them. Can anybody advise on the best outdoor pwc jet ski cover to buy as replacements to OEM???

Plenty of threads out there on this...
All I've purchased are non OEM, so can't contribute much to your question.

I have used Poppy covers, they work good. Just don't trailer them

Read both of those threads already and the Empire covers don't seem to fit very well like the OEM covers. Wish the Poppy covers were made for other brands than just Sea Doo! Covermate doesn't have good reviews for the skis I own. They say the Ultra purely won't fit and the SX-R is ok.
Only real option I see left is a Jet Tribe but not sure how they fit or hold up, anybody got info on them? All reviews I have found say some like it and some awful...

I've got a Jettribe cover for my SHO.
Fits reasonably well and the 4 straps on it mean you can get a good fit. Doesn't flog around when being trailered behind my ute (pickup for you yanks). Waterproof and materials seem quite good. No regrets or dramas with the purchase here.

Try ebay and see if anyone has NOS for sale you see seadoo oem covers all the time. I know its not the same but could be a start. easy to search

I can get a new gray OEM SXR cover for $195 so might jump on that one. Only found a red used OEM Ultra but mint cover for $300, think that is redonkulous for a used cover!! Plus its red, so still searching but whats the next best option if I don't find a good replacement cover?
