    Angry Brand New RXP/RXT both plastic bessel lens BROKEN?

    Hi Guys,

    Final got these rascals launched (07 RXP/RXT) and to my suprise this morning after on 3-4 days of being outside covered both the plastic bessel cracked in like four places each. The bessel is the plastic lens that covers the speado and tach, instrument panel.

    I know sunny Jamaica is warm (85-88 degrees) and the brand new Sea-Doo covers are black but surely this ain't right.

    Anybody got any ideas for me? I would think Sea-Doo knows they can get warm being covered and wouldn't use crappy materials that crack up after 3-4 days.

    Suggestions and theories greatly appreciated. My mind still spinnin at the moment.

    Thanks as always,
    Scottyj

    I agree, does not sound right ... I would almost suspect vandalism, I don't recall hearing about others having this problem.

    i agree... sounds like someone was trying to pop out some gauge clusters. they do break VERY easily, but ONLY when they are trying to be removed or pryed off.

    this wasn't from the heat or the sun or the temperature or weather. someone somewhere was fooling around with it

    No 04-05 are the same and 06-07 are the same.

    Same mind set for myself...i think something struck your vehicle at that location, or someone tried to remove the damn thing or did mess with it....

    I say, hide somewhere with a 12 gage shotgun then wait for them to show up, and shot these bastards in the ass....!!! They will learn not to mess with others toyz...!

    CaymanRXT,

    I'm in Montego Bay and thanks to you I've been dealing with your friend Paublo. Man what a blessing from heaven he is to have living down the street. He just changed oil on both after the first 4 hours. Couldn't believe oil with only four hours looked the way it did.

    I still can't figure out how or why the lens cracked. I'll post a picture tomorrow if I can figure out how to post it.

    So basically I'll replace them and see if they can last longer than 3-4 days. I'm 99.99% sure it wasn't vandalism or a thief attempt.

    Any other possibilities guys?

    Thanks,
    Scottyj
