    Yamaha Waverunner FX Rear Compartment Latch

    Designed this (to be 3D printed) to replace rubber OEM latch, not tested yet (testing this weekend on mates ski)

    Also designing a 2nd version without rear pin will test this too and upload if it works.

    Maybe useful for others...

    Are you planning on selling these? Could possibly be a high demand for em' especially since the OEM ones are so hard to get. I had to wait almost 6 months for my set of OEM replacements!

    Nah, it's free to download. If you have a mate with a 3D printer, send him the STL file and a box of beers Just bear in mind would need to use PETG or Nylon as filament (coz PLA won't last)

    I hope so!

    Latch v1 works perfectly, however when I initially tested latch v2 on my mates ski last weekend, it was a little short/tight (couldn't close the clip fully) so I've increased the length by 3mm, but am yet to test. I'm seeing him in 2 weeks time so will test then. I've uploaded latch-v2, so give it a try and let me know in the interim if you can!

    Good stuff man. Im glad you are sharing the file for people too! I dont have a 3d printer, but plan on getting one for stuff like this. I just want to learn a little cad stuff first.
