I purchased a Thrust Vector for my SX192 from Jet Boat Pilot in 2013. I noticed the other day that the left fin had popped through the hex screw that holds it on. I called Jet Boat Pilot to ask about replacement parts. I was told that my Thrust Vector was discontinued and I would need the latest version. Then she told me they would send me a whole new kit immediately. when I started to give my information, she said she has it all from my phone number and the order has been processed. Today, a brand new Thrust Vector arrived at my door at no charge, they even covered the shipping. If anyone is considering shopping with Jet Boat Pilot, I have to say they are an excellent company with excellent products and customer service.

Great company with outstanding customer service!
Exactly what happened to me a few days ago. Port side fin was loose ( screws came off ). Went to the hardware store and bought new screws / washers. Glad they helped you out
A week after buying the same, I attempted to install the vectors while standing in the water, with my boat on a lift. Of course, I dropped a few parts. I had to pay handsomely to replace them.
Will is a hell of a guy! Helped me out after hours just to install properly over the phone! He my first stop for any of my Yamaha needs!
Awesome. Same happened to me. Calling soon
Will Owen took care of me in the same way last year. The hex screws for the rod came loos and I lost a part and the fin bent. The paint on mine was also peeling off in places. The product was updated and improved so they sent me new fins free of charge. I do recommend checking the screws occasionally. I've found mine to be loose a couple of times and had to snug them up. I used the blue locktite provided but I'm going to have to do another application.
Had a tension spring break on me. Called looking to purchase a replacement, and they sent me out a pair right away n/c. I was impressed.
Same here they are awesome!
Looking pretty common, happened a week just l after I bought mine. Used duck bill vise grips and squeezed it back together. Hasn't popped off since and that was about a year ago...probably should've tried what you did
