Glossary . . . Hull
Topic: Glossary of various hull parts
Common Name: Air intake, Air Scoop
Function: Directs air into hull while trying to keep most of the water out
Notes: Most of these crack after a few years - especially if the screws are over-tightened
Most do not sit flat on the hull. That is, the corners touch, but the middle bows upward a little.
Common Name: Lower hull fitting
Function: Fitting that the Nylon steering bearing rides against.
Notes: Will eventually crack if bike is ridden hard. Jumping and crashing seem to bring this on.
Is also a source of water intrusion into hull - should be removed and re-sealed with 5200.
Common Name: Grab Handles, side handles, lifting handles
Function: To assist mounting of the wetbike - not for lifting
Notes: The sun will dry-rot these things something fierce.
