PTO bearings are spose to be packed with grease according to the dealer. They were dry. Not the first time my dealer has seen this.liquid said:negative blue, ski-doo hasn't had crank issues with any of the 800's since they started building them. maybe you didn't fog the motor properly over the summer.
I wasnt inferring you were being cocky at all.....just stating what I had heard from a reputable dealer. Trying to decide if I should spend another $10,000 on 2 new 06 800's to get another 2 years of warranty or if mine will hold together.liquid said:yes the pto bearings are greased but you still need to fog the motor, maybe you did but you didn't say otherwise, also i am not being cocky, it's very possible that yours went bad for factory defect but i ride with 4 of them and one has 7000 miles with no problems but new rings and another has 5000 miles and has never had a single bolt out of the motor. the other two are lower mileage and they are trouble free also except for a thermostat in the blair morgan which i had to replace for him in the u.p. outdoors when it was -10.
