    2019+ FX SVHO Pump tunnel reinforcement required?

    I would like to verify if pump tunnel reinforcement will be needed for the 2019 FX SVHO chassis.
    Additionally, is grate reinforcement required for the FX SVHO?
    I am interested in leaving BRP and trading in for a 2020 FX SVHO but i am vary of the upgrades/reinforcements needed for the craft to be "sound". I will be going stage 1 plus.

    Lets say i am looking to avoid defects within the pump tunnel as noted in the 2014+/- chassis for both the Yamaha and Seadoo's.

    Input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    The 2015-2018* Yamaha GP1800 and VXR hulls had a known problem with the hull cracking around the inserts for the rear bolts that hold the intake grate in place. There is a reinforcement method that strengthens the hull in that area.

    2019* onwards the GP1800R hull has reinforcement from the factory.

    The actual pump tunnel was always reinforced by the hull liner on GP1800 on all GP1800 years.


    My understanding is that the FX hull was not affected by the GP1800 issue.


    * GP1800 for 2018 might have also had the reinforcement from the factory?

    Thanks for the clarification?

    Any idea of the 2019 + FX SVHO chassis structural integrity ?

    What kinds of water would you be riding? Ocean waves at speed? Smooth rivers and lakes?

    90% of the time lake. But its gets choppy at times. Thing is my 2018 Seadoo RXT got pump tunnel cracks , manufacturer design or not i dont want it to occur again.

    Just by the sound of it no one has reported 2019 pump tunnel issues.
