So I have had my bike since January and pretty quickly the two metal coolant pipes coming from the water pump have syrface corrosion caused by the insanely thin paint wearing away. It is such an exposed part I don't know why Yamaha didn't improve the coating.

I mentioned this to the dealer when booking my service and they are replacing the pipes under warranty.

So just a PSA if your pipes are similar it is worth speaking to the dealer. I'm going to ask for the old ones back so I can get them powder coated as I'm sure the new ones will eventually end up the same.

Had the pipes replaced with no issue. Bike looks new again so very happy. I couldn't keep the old ones as they needed to be sent back to Yamaha. Gave them a good coating of protection spray as soon as I got home so will just keep on top of it.
