    Good morning to all. I recently purchased a 2011 242 limited S, and I am trying to buy a few parts for it. I am replacing the tan Bimini (which is brand new if anyone is interested) with a black Bimini, and I am being asked which model boat I have, either a SXT1800HK or SXT1800GK. I am not sure how to tell the difference, and based on looking it up, this concerns the jet drive? Any help would be great. Also, does anyone know where the best place to get a factory black 2011 Bimini? Would a newer mode
    Bimini fit the 2011 wake tower, like say a 2015 style Bimini?

    Thanks in advance

    glad to have you on board, be sure the check out the FAQ tab at the top of the page for lot's of great tips and DIY ideas,

    yamahasportsplaza is a good place to buy OEM, you might also check on ebay once you get the part # you're looking for,

    I'd guess the model difference is for the California model vs the rest of the US model. I don't think it'd matter for the OEM Bimini top

    You can check both models and see if the part numbers are the same. Likely they are, and as mentioned above, one is a California model. I'd guess it has some additional engine emissions nonsense on it.
