Completed.


Those look really nice. I designed these grommets for my 2002 X-30 not knowing other owners would want a set or if theses throttle panels were different from boat to boat in these areas. I mocked up 2-3 different sets on my 3D printer (love that thing) prior to finalizing the design. I'm glad people like them and it solved a recurring problem for people.

Ran a batch of 36 more today. I'm waiting to hear back from a lot of people so get back with me if you want a set.

The grommets fit great as is on my 2005 x10. You guys did a really good job. They should have come from the factory like this!

^ that looks awesome.

Off subject any reason they don't make kill switch keys in a material other than Plastic? Seems as if they are needlessly designed to break....

Yes stock throttle handle. One of the options I liked about the 2004 to 2005 model transition. I opted to pay a little extra for the 2005 because of some good extras.

I thought about that too. Black anodized and they would disappear into the panel. On my boat they look ok because of the aluminum insert
