    Yes please----tell us all. Bigger, softer and better buffers perhaps on the hood?
    I just wish someone would hurry up with their mirror block off kits.
    I've had one mirror off mine and it looks too 'dorky' with the holes etc. on show.

    Mine aren't bad yet, but once your pics are up I want to see if I can get a dealer to reinforce them as a preventative measure before the warranty expires.

    The repair was a couple of pieces of black rubber knobbies that were inserted. Yes, it is a little harder to open..you have to push down just a little to open it but not much. Some of the rivets were redone as they were hitting on the metallic black instrument panel..at least it's evenly spaced but it does raise the mirrors up off the fenders a litte and has a wider gap where it lays down.

    Is it the best way to do it? Probably not...by all means Yamaha should have replaced the whole lid...that was a little disappointing..especially after reading and hearing all the hype about how Yamaha is "supposedly" notorious for doing things right. I hate when you have to Jimmy-rig anything as a means of making it like it was supposed to be originally from factory.

    The tech is a good guy and really tries hard to please their customners..I'll give him credit for that.

    What do you guys think?

    Mmmmmm, as I thought------just bigger and fatter rubber buffers, as should have been there in the first place.
    My original buffers are still there, but I have put some heavy duty self adhesive tape onto the the part where the buffers come down on, to stop the small hard ones marking it anymore.

    I often wonder if YAMAHA ever read and take notice of these forums?

    I often wonder too.

    The bigger rubber buffers are from HydroTurf...they just cut them down to fit.

    I bet they're already too busy planning the next generation of skis. It could be worse. When I come into this forum it's littered with little jitters or hiccups here and there, but at least we don't all have blown engines and sinking skis. lol
