    Same hull and liner design on 2015+ VXR as GP1800. NanoXcel 2 vs. NanoXcel material, but the core stress issue is the same.

    I have read about fewer VXR hulls than GP1800 having this failure but more than zero.

    If I had a VXR I would consider doing the intake grate bracket reinforcement. One time hassle, then no worries.

    Cool thank you. I'm thinking about possibly swapping out the Grate and the ride plate at the same time. I'm not a big mod person but those seem like to pretty simple things to help the handling and performance.

    Has anyone compared the brackets off of the 19's and the 18's? Are they longer and cover more hull area similiar to the fx brackets? or are they the same as the 18s

    I am unaware of anyone having a genuine factory production 2019 GP1800R.

    I did look at a pre-production GP1800R in October, but it was not final so the brackets it had are not relevant.

    I do not have any info on whether the hull insert brackets for intake grate will change for 2019 GP1800R nor whether the hull liner will still be cut away in that area.

    Still look a little small, Im moving on to a 18 and before it touches water I plan on doing the reinforcement, safe insurance. Will just use Jerrys way

    Are the 2019 GP1800R parts diagrams online yet?

    2019 FX diagrams would also be interesting

    There’s no cutout like in the previous years.

    Could still upgrade '19 with the longer FX bracket if a guy wanted a bit more surface area.
