Hello Everybody,

 

I just brought my 2014 MXZX 800 Etec into my dealer for a 'pre-season' and I was informed that there is a recall on my reed valves.  I wasn't given much detail and can't seem to find much online about this. 

 

Anybody else out there have this recall done?

 

Just looking for any insight on this issue? 

 

Thanks!

Anyone know of Doo's recall notification protocol?

To be honest, it doesn't really feel like there is much of a protocol.  I don't think the public gets access to recall bulletins, and I've never received anything in the mail stating that there's a recall on my sled.  The only reason I know about this one is becasue I was at my dealer a few weeks ago, and they mentioned it to me.  MIght be worth calling your dealer to ask.  Please let me know if you doo, and what they say.  Maybe only the Shorty's are affected and the Gade's are ok....

Ok thanks.

 

Sounds like it's a similar recall situation with the auto industry......probably only notify where the law says they have to ie safety recall or some other predefined functionality issues

That's a great thought...  That never even crossed my mind.   When I was at the dealer they mentioned the recall was to "improve the longevitiy of the motor" (or something to that effect).  But has nothing to do with safety.  I'll bet you're right, they are likey only required to notify us if it's a safety thing.  Thanks Neurotoxin. 

 

I'd still like some details on this specific recall if anyone knows anything.

Just got off the phone with my dealer... He pulled up the bulletin while on phone, said at 5000km to bring in sled and get the
exhaust valves checked, replace if needed!!!

I'll be out of warranty before I hit 5k

 

I'll make sure I get them inspected yearly though

Thanks Gonzoz.  Just to clairify - did he say exhaust valve or reed valve?

OK, so I just called my dealer again...  Gonzoz was right.  It's an exhaust valve thing.  NOT a reed vavle.  I was originally told it was a reed valve - but that was not correct.  And apparently it won't be on all 800's.  They need to check a "dot code" or something like that - and that will let them know if the replacement needs to happen.  Guess it depends on when your 800 came off the assembly line.  Apparently there are 2 other recalls - 1. computer update so fix the "dimming of the headlight at start-up" and 2. Provide a seperate ground for the gauge cluster. 

 

Thanks for the help guys!

I dropped mine off Moday morning and they said they hoped to have it done by the end of the week....  Doesn't bother me when there's no snow on the ground!!
