    Severe Damage to 2011 VXR - Help

    Hi Everyone,

    A few days ago both of my Yamaha VXR's were knocked off of their lifts during a storm and, subsequently, were repeatedly smashed into the large rocks along the shore. Needless to say, the damage was very severe. Deep scratches and gouges in the hull/bumper and seats. Additionally, one of the PWCs had both mirrors knocked off. They both still operate fine, but clearly need serious work and I have absolutely no idea where to go from here. Is it possible to fix damage this severe? Can/will Yamaha provide a new 'body', and if so, does anyone have an estimate as to the price? Finally, I've read through other threads and found that the NanoXcel body is best to be repaired using epoxy resins, but does anyone know of a good brand to use and where to buy the product?

    Thanks in advance for all of your help!

    I hope you have insurance. Sounds like an insurance claim to me.

    Yeah if you are spending the cash for dock lifts and keeping your bikes on the water you better have invested the 25 bucks a month into insurance. I would assume you have unless your bikes our on your own property and not a marina or boat club, so if so put a claim in, that's what insurance is for brother.
