    Front Hood Opens on It`s Own - 2018 Fx svho

    2018 Fx svho-- My front hood opens on its own sometimes after hitting a wave. Mine opened and slammed shut and cracked the top portion of the outside latch and cracked the top portion of the bezel around the instrument cluster when it slammed shut. Brought it to the dealer and Yamaha would not cover it.

    Has anyone had this happen to them?

    Thanks From CJ

    No problems on my 2018 FX HO other than it's a little hard to get it to close and latch completely. On my to do list this Spring.

    my 16 and 18 FX both did it, specially when pulling it on trailer. Just needs a good elbow grease closing.

    My 2016 fx svho does that same thing when I come down hard from a wave. I just slam it back shut. I should probably see what is going on.
