Where To Get Replacement Parts for 2008 VTX?

Recommended Posts

MalibuKent

Hi,

Other than Malibu dealerships, does anyone know where one can get/order replacement parts? I sent an email to Bakes, but was wondering what other options there may be. Specifically, I need a pair of bow rails for my 08 Wakesetter VTX.

Responses/suggestions will be much appreciated!

I was going to suggest Bakes. but you already have that covered.

the only other places I could think of would be ebay.

but I'm sure a shop could make them for you too, a quote on that wouldn't be too hard it's the tubing some welding and labor.

the interwebs are loaded with different options too, just probably would take some digging, I betcha the EXACT rails for your 08 VTX would include a heafty charge due to the prices of OEM replacements for items that don't have normal "wear rates".

I think you are in a tough spot considering the specific fitment, unless you can find out if those rails were outsourced and who the manufacturer is. If Bake's can't get them you may want to also try Peter @ Smootwatersports (member here). He is a Malibu dealer so can get them for sure.

also, would stock replacement be stainless steel that's $$ if you got it made out of Aluminum could you save some scratch?

contact marinehardware.com

They make or have some of the original/replacement parts, not all of them are in the catalog.

Contact Peter @ Smooth Water (he is a member here). A dealer, but better prices than most dealers.

Curious. Does your boat have the holes for them already, or are you just trying to add them? I thought they all came with them back then.

I have a set of rails that came off my 07 VTX.

I don't think those will work on an '08. The '07 have the rocker bow rails, and the '08s the mux bow rails.
