This is what I used (RP-355), the way to go IMO. Stoltz has just started offering those, designed specifically for our trailer. I think I posted some pics above. (Hard to keep track of those roller threads...)Ok, so on a 242 E series which bow roller should I get?
LOL, not sure what you used the hammer for...So, I installed my 3.5" Stoltz roller kit today. As others have mentioned, simple install and the kit fit nearly perfect. There was a slight bit of play, but a couple taps with a hammer tightened up the brackets.
Here are a couple comparison pics.

congrats! dont forget Thrust Vectors. theu are worth every penny.Just purchased 2017 AR195, should be delivered at dealer within next couple weeks. Went with the black hull, thought it was pretty sweet looking. Did a lot of research, really like the Scarab Impulse 195 also, but couldn't get price even close so the Yamaha won the bid. Plan to install second battery, tint the windows, new roller on trailer and alter wake tower so it will lower into my garage. Pretty excited!!!
I'm in for $58,000.00 (out the door) Canadian funds! our dollar is only worth 75 cents to the US dollar. I think I read that you can get one for 35,600.00 US? I ordered a Black/Yellow as well and have ordered the yellow supercharger decal off the 2016 grey/yellow Ar192 seeing the 2017 AR195 doesn't have that decal. My mods are tint the windows, add the Schotts roller, change the rims on the trailer and add Rigid Industries Marine lights on the tower. Where you from danclemo? I'm from LaSalle Ontario in the Lake Erie Great Lakes Region. Congrats on your AR195! Beautiful Boat at a good price.Just curious, what did everyone pay for their AR195 out the door? Felt like I got a pretty good deal, I went to 3 diff. marinas and one was much lower than the other.
This is a pretty confusing topic, actually.The newer models have the built in keel, thought was basically the same thing? Is the thrust vector still required? Thanks all.
Yes i ordered it right from the Yamaha dealer and he got the order # off a 2016 AR192 (grey hull color with yellow graphics) The price i mentioned of $35,600.00 was MSRP on the Yamaha U.S website. so you did well. Been to Port Huron many times when my son played baseball for a team out of Sterling Heights a few years back.I live in mid Michigan, so Port Huron is about an hour away. I shopped around a bit and ended up getting what I thought was a pretty good deal. I got the boat at $37,100 OUT THE DOOR and included the full mooring cover. They also gave me a good deal trade-in on my old boat so that ended up lowering purchase taxes almost 1K, so I actually got boat for about 36,100 out the door with cover. The other marinas were closer to 39,500 ish.
I'm interested in the Black/Yellow supercharger decal also, did you just order that from Yamaha? Do you have picture of it handy, I will go look at some older boats and see I can find picture. That's sounds like nice addition.
