    Default Seat problem!

    Hi guys. Just wondering if anyone has ever had any problem with the main seat coming off their ski? I had three people on mine today and naturally one person was holding onto the strap. We did a turn and as i punched the gas, they pulled down on the strap and the whole seat came off! Ripped out from under me!



    It didnt just get ripped off the pin that it locks onto- it ripped the entire pin out of that black piece of plastic that sits above the engine. The pin was still in the seat!



    I couldnt believe it had happened, considering the small load that was put on it.....

    Default Unbelievable!....

    I've never heard that before, ever. I'd go to www.seadoo.com and on the main page, on the top left, they have a contact us link. I'd give them a shout, because either there was a defect in this construction or this may be a "recall" type item on such a new ski.
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.

    I'd contact seadoo for a recall on the seat unit.

    Well i rang the dealer today about my seat....

    Got the standard workshop response "We'l need to look at it before we determine its a warranty"

    Luckily she goes in for her 10 hour tommorow. See what happens i guess :s

    Good news today. I dropped the ski off for its service/ repair. They rang me a few hours later after fixing the problem under warranty. Turns out the took the part they needed of a brand new ski to help me out

    And here i was ready for the worst..... Looks like im back in business for easter

    Still thinking of contacting brp here in aus though, cus as you said karl, it simply shouldnt have happened.
