Default Re-Engineered REV Recoil Assembly

If anyone is tired of buying 20$ recoil kits every season, because of all the problems associated with the current design. Let me know as I am currently in the process of making a new assembly that should last forever.

It would use your existing recoil housing, but the internal components would be CNC machined from aluminum and anodized for a better heat resistance and smoother sliding surface. The plastic tabs would be gone forever, and replacing them are thicker stronger aluminum locked connection....The plastic is known to slip past the tabs and become useless.....I've had to rip apart my recoil out on a ride and put it back together and it's not a fun experience.

The internal parts are known to come off their housing and rattle around and damage other parts. With this new design the snap ring is replaced with a ring type cap with a hole pre drilled so you can drill through the top plastic and use a cotter pin to seal everything.

I am currently using a bolt and a washer at the end of my recoil assembly and it seems to be working for the time being.

I need to know if there is any interest for me to show a prototype on the forums or if anyone thinks they would be intersted in seeing how it works? before you decide you want one for your sled.....This is for REV model ski doo sleds.

Mine is an 07 MXZ 591cc 121"

Aluminum housing;

Aluminum Pawl:
http://m.ebay.com/itm/192073811611?_mwBanner=1

Only 2 pieces that need to be aluminum. Frankly, just the pawl needs to be aluminum if some heat shielding is applied to the recoil housing. I have studied and repaired these things for years and it comes down to really being clean and using the proper lubricant. All that is maintenance. Obviously lower to no maintenance would be great. The aluminum pawl has eliminated failures. The second it starts to drag, it gets cleaned and lubed. Just my input.

Yea I've heard that there is a model with an aluminum pawl and that is possibly it yes….but I am in the process of making a complete new assembly…all aluminum and hopefully anodized….eliminating all failures…no more snap ring either…going to use cotter pin like in the power modz video….
