    Another exploded R&D intake grate!

    Well today the R&D intake grate on my 2000 XLL exploded and pitched the rider over the bars! These damn grates they are putting out are timebombs just waiting to go off and are going to seriously hurt someone! Has anyone tried to get R&D to replace one that fell apart? Mine has 3 mounts still in place with the entire center section of the grate gone and one bolt sheared off (no insert damage though, just need to EZ out the bolt).

    Yes, they will replace it with no questions asked, as long as you didn't grind or polish or cut on it.

    He's fine... a little sore today but the only thing keeping him from riding the ski the rest of the day was the fact that the grate was gone and the ski would randomly nose dive and turn because of it!

    I'm gonna call R&D asap...

    Gee, let me see. That's now - 8 broken grates in Texas in the last two years. Surely it's not the product. It must be the water.
