Tubing cracking on RXP canopy... anyone else?
Very strange.. I have an 06 RXP with only 25 hrs on it which remains covered when not in use.. suddenly last week i noticed that the plastic tubing (decorative) that runs along the top of the canopy had spider-cracks in it. I [literally] tapped it and it cracked and broke apart. Later the same day I accidentally leaned on the other side and cracked it as well. I have to assume that sunlight made it brittle... but after only 2 years, thats pretty bad.
This happened to anyone else?
Cheap plastics are nothing new to seadoos... the old XP pastics used to come apart at the handlebars and etc. The RXP seemed to me to be so much better in terms of its overall integrity..
im disappointed. I dont know how much it will be from the dealer to replace the parts but i wont be surprised if its 30/40 dollars each.

agreed. it compliments the look of those handlebars as well.
i think im just most disappointed at the quality here. I had an 01 xp and a 98 gsx before that and the plastics came apart around the handlebars and etc. The hardware stripped when i tried to repair/replace the warped peices. When i got my RXP a couple of years ago, I really felt like they had put together a better ski. Seeing this happen after only 2 years was a little disheartening... it reminds me of all those old headaches

Hi bigdaddyRXP, when I was looking at the stainless braided hosing for the hood (it's hot) I noticed the carbon fibre trimming on the riva rxp ski. Do you know where I can get that part?

Even Better Some Vent Tubing From An Old Gsx, All Seadoo Does It Cut The Ends Off And Uses It For The Black Tubing...i Found Some Used In Good Shape At My Local Dealer, 10 Bucks Did Two Skis Worth
