YES.. our 15 242 is also coming off in layers. Open the hatch and be greeted by foam hanging down. This si blocking the fire extinguisher ports.. so it is a major safety hazard and yamaha could be in bog trouble if their is a fire and it is blocking the suppression port.
John: The complete" fix" is extremely easy.
And relatively inexpensive.
I suggest you might try it. The time involved, besides driving to buy the can of 3M spray adhesive, is approx. 5 mins.
Let us know if we can assist you any further.

Poor execution by Yamaha on the insulation. I looked at new ones sunday and the foam was already coming down. Looked mickey mouse, hopefully will be done like it should for 2016 models.

Well I forgot to tell the dealer about the foam so I just did it myself. Had a can of 3M already and it worked great. But hey they buffed out some docking scratches for me and I didn't even ask them to so I will handle the small stuff.

Just passed over 25hrs and am experiencing the same problem. However I purchased a can of 3M's "extra stength" liner adhesive. Its supposed to be high heat and high moisture resistant. -- time shall tell.

@john94si - I whole heartedly agree!! HUGE safety concern.

There appears to be 3 layers of foam. The first layer of foam is separating from the hatch, and the other layers are separating from each other. This happened to mine. I used LOCTITE professional performance 300 heavy spray adhesive. This product worked for me.

Did the fix with the 3m 90 Hi strength. Seems to be holding for now. I'll report back after the 4th after we have some hours on it.

Yep, new 2018 212X here. Same problem. Mine ripped in several places the first time out from folding over itself and getting pinched between the hatch and the engine compartment each time it is opened and closed. There are actually two separate foam pieces (part numbers) for this. Both of mine are torn. Dealer will replace both at 10 hour service.

Mine unfortunately is dried out and is starting to fall apart and come off in chunks (with the accompanying nasty black dust). It is an '06...so, I get it, but I'm dreading the thought of replacing it. Has anyone undertaken what I anticipate being a very messy task?
