I have the same ski and need the same part. One guy I saw at the river the other day had rubber side gunwales on his VXR Pro. Asked him where he got them he said watercraftsuperstore.com. I got online couldn't find them, then I called them and they said they didn't have rubber ones. In fact the OEM plastic ones are obsolete. Sounds like Yamaha doesn't even make them. Been trying to find for awhile with no luck. He had custom paint job, maybe the shop made them for him. Don't know. He said he installed them but since I can't find them, not sure what to believe. Let me know if you have any luck.
okay maybe a dumb question but this ski has a bilge that works off vacum from the pump and its the strainer under the engine that picks up the water and pumps out while the ski is moving right correct me if im wrong
