    Cracked hulls on FZ's ???

    Hey guys,

    Just after any input to see if anyone has had any issues with cracks in the FZ hulls. We have a guy here who's FZR hull cracked (quite big not hairline) all on port side of transom from pump up to hull join and down to side Yamaha are aware and will be checking the ski out this week so I have been told just wondering is this isolated? And no he was not abusing the hell out of the ski in the surf........ just a bit of playing around. Look forward to hearing any more

    I have heard of this as well. A guy on my lake just notified our dealer about it, and Yamaha is looking into it.

    Did that ski have an aftermarket grate? I've read the FZ's have a new design where the pump shoe bolts to the transom plate instead of to the pump tunnel...just wondering if the new design is causing the issue.

    Nope stock intake at the time it happened. Maybe the foam baffles inside of the intake cowlings aren't needed

    Remove the foam pieces inside the front hood. They can suck in and block off the opening. When this happens the hull will suck in and crack!

    I'm confused!!!

    First 08GPR talks about cracks in the hull on the port side of the transom from the pump to the hull/deck join. This leads me to believe its a pump/ride plate issue or the ski just fell hard on the transom!

    Then 08GPR & Jerry are talking about the foam air vents which can cause the deck to get sucked in... this is different from the hull issue described above.

    Which are we discussing?
