these bulletins were posted several weeks back.

 

Rave valve, and how to check if yours is needed to be replaced.

 
 Bulletins 
-2014-10    
 
800 etec, upper rave valve piston contact at/around 3000 miles,
only on some vins. look for dot code under pto rave.
1 dot ck vin/date. no dots or 2 dots your ok.
 
Bad quality control. the dot (round punch mark) if there is on the flat 
surface just under the pto rave cover. just use a mirror as it's easier this way. 
also on the outside of the pto cyl is a date code, if the code is less than 336 your ok ,
higher than 336  replace both rave valves ONLY IF YOU HAVE THE 1 DOT .

Thanks for this Rockerdan.  I'm guessing my sled met all the criteria as I just got a call from my dealer saying my sled did apply and had the recall done.  I'm not sure if I'm happy about this, or not…

Thanks for the info Rockerdan.  I just called my dealer and he ran my VIN, he said it has a 'clean bill of health' and we talked about this issue and the display ground wire for a minute.

 

As far as the rave valve TSB (2014-10), I'll confirm with the visual check on the PTO cylinder for 0 or 2 dots as well as the date code less than 336.

I havent heard from the dealer, but then again, I wouldnt expect ANY dealer to call if there was a problem. LOL.

 

Be nice if you could punch in your VIN on the skidoo website and it would tell you what bulletins are for your machine.

also, My dealer said most guys who are over 3k miles would likely get a rave CODE CEL , which points to this issue.  But even some with 3k+ miles and no CEL have got the update.   I believe BRP replaces the entire rave valve setup with new ones.

OK So I checked on mine when I went in on the weekend. They said bring it in around 5000 KM and they will inspect the RAVE.

 

Guess I got one of the lucky ones. Built on a monday or friday..  :rolleyes_old:  :rolleyes_old:
