Ski Doo 800 Recall

Postby - -CHIG- ->>> » August 28th, 2001, 3:36 pm

After hearing rumors online about Ski Doo recalling their 2001 800 twins for replacement pistons, rings etc. I checked with my dealer today and he confirmed it. He hasn't received a bulletin from the factory yet but he knows it is on the way. Not sure what the recall is for or exactly how many parts are involved but he believes that Ski Doo will also warranty these engines for another year.

Ski Doo 800 Recall

Postby Xtreme » August 28th, 2001, 11:46 pm

Skidoo 2001 Twin Cylinder 800 Engines -
(All models equipped with a 793 engine type)

Here is a copy of the WARRANTY BULLETIN # 2001-12 letter sent to owners:

Dear Skidoo Owner,

At Bombardier, we pride ourselves in providing our valued customers with the best quality, durability and reliability available in the snowmobile industry. We also place top priority on customer satisfaction, and that means standing behind our products, especially on the rare occasion when something does not perform to our high standards.

Such is the case with the pistons in some of our 2001 twin-cylinder 800cc engines. Due to an unexpected variation in some of the pistons provided to Rotax by a supplier, there is the possibility of deterioration that could lead to engine damage. To ensure that you get the maximum performance from your Skidoo snowmobile, Bombardier will make the following improvements to your snowmobile at no cost to you when the work is performed at an authorized Skidoo dealer:


SKIDOO RECALL AREA:


PLEASE NOTE:This recall list is NOT all inclusive.

The following recalls are the ones that SnowmobileWorld.com was able to obtain from various sources. Most manufacturers are unwilling to provide this data to the general public as they believe this type of information can lead to declining enthusiasm for their product.

We at SnowmobileWorld.com provide this recall and bulletin information solely for the purpose of user safety. We have received numerous reports of customers purchasing used snowmobiles that have NOT received corrective action and owners that are unaware that a recall exists.

If you know of a snowmobile related recall not listed here, please tell us about it by contacting us here.

SKIDOO CUSTOMER SERVICE:
(800) 375-4366
Provide and install new, improved pistons

Clean the carburetors

Update the cooling system with some of the components introduced on our new 2002 models

Provide and install new standard spark plugs which are now recommended for this engine type and are standard equipment for 2002 models with twin-cylinder 800cc engines (Note: For future reference, please change the spark plug number to NGK BR9ECS in your Operator's Guide, page 120).

These upgrades will improve the quality and will not compromise performance of your engine while ensuring its long term dependability. You can rest assured that your authorized Skidoo dealer has all the tools and skills required to make these improvements and inspections, and to put your sled on the snow in peak performance condition.

As previously stated, these enhancements will be at our cost, not yours. We strongly recommend that your sled undergo this work prior to the start of your riding season. It is also suggested that this upgrade be completed before your dealer's peak period begins early this Fall to assure your complete satisfaction.

Unless your dealer has already contacted you, please call its after-sales service department today to make an appointment. Tell them it is in regard to campaign 2001-0011.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation. Best wishes from Bombardier for a safe and enjoyable snowmobile season.

Yours truly,

The After-Sales Service Team


SNOWMOBILEWORLD.COM EXCLUSIVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION::::

This warranty campaign is being placed in action due to a thorough investigation by Skidoo concerning piston skirt failures last season. Skidoo has identified that there exists a probability that piston skirt failures will occur in the 2001 800 engine line. Skidoo also believes that this problem was caused by a manufacturing process variation at Rotax's piston supplier caused by a fire at the supplier's manufacturing facility and a subsequent move.

Skidoo has also observed causes of detonation which they associate with an overheat condition at the spark plug seat.

PROBLEM SOLUTION: (what will be performed under this bulletin)

 Replace pistons with the new improved pistons
 Update and bleed the cooling system
 Clean carburetors
 Replace spark plugs
 Reprogram MPEM

Skidoo notes that engine performance will remain the same after improvements.

PARTS REQUIRED FOR WORK:

793 Update Kit - Part Number 590 122 300
Programming Cartridge - Part Number 512 059 590

HOW WILL WORK BE CARRIED OUT:

Dealers will receive an amount of kits corresponding to 50% of their invoiced vehicles involved. The upgrade kits will be shipped by the following schedule:

25% of the units invoiced to each dealership and involved in this campaign on the first week of September;
25% of the units invoiced to each dealership and involved in this campaign on the first week of October;
