Long story short, my 2006 600SDI lost a piston in Yellowstone. I managed to ride 12 miles back to town to the dealer. Dealer said 0psi on the PTO side. Loaded it back into our trailer under it's own power. Once back in Oregon, I moved it to a different trailer under it's own power.

As the sled has 8K on the clock, I decided to go with the long block. The local dealer talked me into letting them do the swap, as they have a "master Ski Doo technician" in their employ....

Fast forward a month and a half, and they called and asked if the sled had any other issues before it dropped the PTO side cylinder. I told them the sequence of events above. I have never had a single issue before this, and I've owned it since 2006.

The service manager said that they could get it to fire, but it won't idle. They called yesterday and asked for my blessing to order and install two sensors. At this point, it looks to me as if they are throwing parts at it and have no idea what the issue is.

Anybody got any ideas?

Who the heck knows..... The worst part of all of this is that we just ordered two new sleds from this dealership, and these monkeys will be the ones prepping them. :wacko:

I got the same problem . When cold pull 4 times fires and stalls ! 2 more fires stalls . If I can get to the throttle before it stalls and get it to rev up it will stay running . Once a little heat is I the engine runs like a dream.

Looks like the only platinum dealer in Oregon is Power Motorsports just out side of Bend. I ran a Platinum service dept. and those tech's are the no BS type, fix it or fall on the sword trying. Never found a sled they couldn't fix, though BRP shipped a few that would try them. :wacko:

Unfortunately, I don't think dealerships are paying enough to keep top quality techs these days. Buddy of mine worked at one of the larger Yamaha dealers and kept having to go into the shop to fix issues. He begged management.owners to raise wages and hire a couple of good techs, but they didn't seem to care.

Are you dealing with a Ski Doo dealer that has the Buds/CanDoo software so they can communicate with the ECM? If not they'll be just throwing darts in hopes of hitting what the issue is

I assume they have BUDS. They're a pretty big dealer.

Still waiting to hear back about which sensors they are replacing. Supposed to be $400 with labor.....

My guess they charge $80-100 per hour labor + the parts. $400 isn't a terrible price by today's standards, providing those sensors are in fact the cause.
Hopefully they've checked the wiring harnesses and all connections as they're famous for corrosion, and upon occasion can be easily damaged in the course of a shortblock swap.

Your into it this deep, you pretty much have see it thru now
