    Default New 200 hp defective engine oil pan covers???

    I first noticed what I thought was paint starting to crack, boy was I wrong..Unbeknownst to me, the entire midsection cover was breaking apart. When I came back to port the whole midsection cover was missing. It had been broken off. Then upon examining my port side outboard, I noticed it was cracking. I have less than 40 hours on these engines and I have not hit any sandbars or debris in the water. Do you think suzuki will warranty this? IMO its a defect, the water gets funneled into the lower part of the midsection, causing too much stress on the covers. Has anyone else had similar issues? This is the port side outboard..you can see its cracked and will eventually come off like the starboard side.
