    Worx front load grate front bolts not lining up? Is this common?

    Brand new ski...never seen water before or been run more than 1 minute total...unbolted stock intake grate to put on Worx unit. 4 rear bolts line up perfectly. Front bolts not even close...I'd have to angle and destroy my front grate mounts and or snap bolts off in the process. I took pics, not sure how to post them.

    Also, noticed that the front of the grates, stock included but not as bad...would stick down significantly and create a ton of drag and general cavitation from the lip. Anyone find a solution for this? I ground the stainless units for my GP1300 skis for a while till they were drag free and razor sharp.

    I'm referring to an issue with a front loader worx intake grate for a 2017 GP1800

    There is literally a 1/4"+ issue and I don't want to start enlarging the grate mount holes. I find it ridiculous that I'd even have to.

    Are you sure you have the correct product for this hull?

    Should be bolt on parts, I would send it back and let them recheck there product, and ask for a replacement.

    If you purchased it from Jerry, contact him. He will make it right.

    Jerry is working on it as we speak. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? It's a new ski...wondering if that may be it...or perhaps I just got a messed up casting of a unit.

    Yes I had the same shit...I had the holes welded up and then re-drilled. Didn't feel like waiting for the next batch.

    I'm not dealing with that. It's supposed to be a bolt on mod. I can see quality control having issues with other imperfections...but the actual bolt hole locations? no way.

    I had a slight discrepancy with my R&D ride plate on my 2013 FX SHO, I had to employ my trusty Dremel tool to make it fit nicely. But it wasn not as bad as your pictures show.
