VX Deluxe partsYou will then be given the choice of OEM versus aftermarket parts in many cases. Your choice can be based on performance as well as appearance. Combine this with shipping, sales tax, and actual cost of the part and you've got some decisions to make.

We have listed a few suppliers here along with brief descriptions of each. Hopefully the following will guide you to find the VX Deluxe jet ski parts you need, with timely delivery, and a competitive price.


OEM or Aftermarket VX Deluxe Parts

The use of OEM (or original equipment manufacturer) Yamaha parts will always be recommended by Yamaha for any repair, of course.

OEM parts are basically parts that were built by another company for sale only to Yamaha. The manufacturer, in turn sell these official VX Deluxe repair parts to you. The parts are not available directly from the company that actually made the item, but through a Yamaha authorized parts dealer.

This is perfectly fine, but some watercraft owners still look for aftermarket solutions to their problem. There are positives and negatives to aftermarket Yamaha parts.

The biggest advantage is the pricing which is typically below the OEM cost. As for disadvantages, there are a few bullet points to keep in mind should you decide to pursue aftermarket parts. Some manufacturers will claim the aftermarket parts create safety concerns for a jet ski or personal watercraft.

There is also a lack of a recall system in the event a potential problem arises with the aftermarket part. Also, the possibility of voiding a warranty on your jet ski looms overhead if your watercraft is new enough. One other disadvantage of using aftermarket parts for your VX Deluxe, could be a diminished value on the watercraft when it comes time to sell.

How to Find VX Deluxe Parts

Finding factory original replacement parts for your VX Deluxe jet ski doesn't have to be difficult. You can point, click, and select your parts from home or even your phone when your ski or waverunner needs attention.

Pretty much all suppliers give you the choice to select from original stock, and aftermarket VX Deluxe parts. Some of the most commonly replaced parts are pump seals, gaskets, trim cables, steering cables, seat covers, starters, throttle cables, carb kits, impeller housings, reverse cables, cdi boxes, wear rings, impellers, trim motors, igntion coils, starter relays, voltage regulators, jet pumps and rebuild kits, drive shafts, general pump parts, primer kits, rotary valve parts, and floor mats.

These repair parts can typically be selected from the factory jet ski diagrams (or micro-fiche as it was once called) and home delivered at the same price as your local PWC dealer and sometimes even less.
