Ski Doo Primary Clutch Recall

Ski Doo Primary Clutch Recall

Post by James Aust » Sun, 01 Nov 1998 04:00:00


I decided (spur of the moment) to bring my sled in on Oct. 20, and I had
it back the same day. They didn't even want to look at the clutch, they
just replaced the part.

I don't know the story behind your dealer, but you just made me
appreciate mine a whole lot more.

==========================================
does anyone know if SkiDoo is backed up or behind on deliveries of
replacement clutch halves? My dealer has been telling me for the last
two months (yes MONTHS) that they do not have the replacements from SD
yet. They already have my other clutch (had to turn it in for
examination re the recall letter). ? I have this feeling that a well
organized company such as Bombardier would have these available. maybe
my dealer is giving me the run around??? ? Help....

I brought my sled in for the clutch recall on Oct 23 and the dealer told me
he had one set of replacement parts left and that the rest were back ordered
for weeks.
I still dont have my sled fixed yet. I think the Dealer is giving me the run
around.

Chuck & others,

I talked to a Ski-doo Rep. at the snow-show a week or so back. After giving
this guy a serious chewing out I finally got some answeres out of him.
It seems that Ski-doo did have all the clutches made and ready to ship out to
the dealers but that the entire amount of clutches was rejected by ski-doo
(aperantly they did not meet specs.). They are manufacturing them as fast as
posiable and are sending them to dealers in smaller amounts. The rep. told me
as an example "if your dealer sold 40 ski-doo's they'll send him about 10
clutches (roughly 25% of what he sold) as a start.
Upon further pressing of this guy he also addmited that (actully he guarenteed
me) that their WILL be some people out there that WON'T   be riding at least
untill late Dec. maybe longer.
Hate to be the bearer of bad news.

Mark

Ya had my clutch replaced about a month ago, I had the first one done.
But, I had mine in the shop the day after the letter arrived at my house.
It still took about two months before they even got the parts.  My clutch
did have the cracks they talked about in the letter, so both inner and
outer sheves were replaced, free of charge.  I have a 1997 Formula III
600.
