broken drain assembly
FZR has both drain assemblies broken, they look like they were way over tightened and there is no protective coating on them. Anyone had this issue before? I checked them on my 2007 FX HO and they were fine. Ski has less than an hour on it.
Here's a link to the part, its part 30 on hull and deck section.

Fixed it today, seemingly simple task no?....no... its impossilbe to get to the nuts from inside the hull even with a 3 foot socket wrench You can get the first nut on by using a right angle needle nose pliers but the other, forget about it! Ended up taking a 8mm nut wrench and bending it to a 90 degree angle with a propane torch Using that you can stick the nut in the wrench and squeeze it through the drain plug. <--- only way to do it. Hope this saves people time in the future!
