Dec 18th 2007, blew my 07 800r with 1800 km`s.
top end shot, reason by dealer....Unknown
Still waiting for it back, backordered parts....maybe thats telling me that there is a high demand for engine components? Could there possibly problems with the 800r engine.
Just some sarcasm with Brp. They are not my friend at the moment.
07 800R Summit X 159 - Crank @ 720 miles last season. 1st ride this season on New years eve, wouldn't idle and crank/connecting rod went at around 1700 miles on the sled during a climb. Crank full of Antifreeze.
Waiting for third motor. Second motor never had the "R" stamped on it.
98 summit-x rode it for 2 years, never a hitch, motor wise.
2000 Highmark 700. rode for 2 1/2 years, replaced pistons after 3000 miles, cylinders like new. rode for another 2 1/2 years, sold it to a friend, it is still going strong, I bet it has7000 miles on it now.
2005 rev 162. 3500 miles on it and it still runs like new. Did the typical rings at 1500 miles, and it looked like a new motor inside.
Slim, which sled had the big bore, the zx, or the Rev?? or both?
My zx has trail porting with crankshop pipes.
My rev has just trail porting.
I run FRESH premium fuel every ride.
My 670 x blew the odd belt.
My other sleds, I have never blown a belt. EVER!
I inspect every day I ride, and if it looks like it needs changing, it becomes my back up belt.
I agree that doo has to smarten up, and get their act together. Other than the usual, typical doo issues, like floppy boards, bad carb boots, flaking rings, etc, the sleds I had were good.
01. 1800 miles piston update (cracked) warranty. 2000 more miles added turbo and put wisco pistons in and put 3000 more miles and the crank bearings went. sold turbo and put in 950 BB and new crank. 2000 miles on this motor and no issues. so I guess I really haven't had any problems I didn't cause.
1999 600 Summit - no motor problems. Kinked the tunnel and she was totaled.
2001 800 Summit - new pistons under warranty. New pistons/ rings rebuild again at 1,600 miles. Ran great until it broke the tunnel cooler and ran out of coolant one day...
2004 800 Rev HMX - broke ring at about 1,300 miles and messed up lots of stuff. New short block under warranty, $50 deductible but in the shop a long time waiting for the short block. Runs great at 2,400 miles. Team secondary, Thing can, and lightened up a bit.
2006 800 Rev HMX - 1,200 miles, runs terrrrific!!!!!!!! Team secondary and Thing can.
2009 Rev XP that I don't have yet - ?????
