You need to quit worrying about this and bringing it up to everyone else who gets their new sled. Its very clear that all the Rmotions are doing this, so just let everyone enjoy their new sleds, and worry about your own.See if the inside of your track is rubbing the top of the shock near the drive shaft ?
Hey ,did you see the recall on 2011 Etech 800 pistons?You need to quit worrying about this and bringing it up to everyone else who gets their new sled. Its very clear that all the Rmotions are doing this, so just let everyone enjoy their new sleds, and worry about your own.
Generally I don't due to lack of time. I have been to St. Germaine, WI. That was some awesome riding. The last few years a bunch of us have gone to Caledonia,MN for 3 days or so. It's only 2 hours from here and has some pretty good riding. Where all do you ride?Yeah man for sure. I'm planning to order a sled this spring. Do you take your sled anywhere like Wisconsin or the UP?
i bet my 800 is one of them you seen as my family have a place near mountain. but anyway my 800 had 4500 trouble free miles on it untill i lost a reed pedal taking out my cylinder. guess i was lucky i made it past the 3k isoflex problem but now everyone knows the reeds go out at 4500miles. guess most didnt know about it because they had everything replace at 3k when they replaced their engines do to iso and cranksAccording to the internet, Cats welds break on groomed trails, Polaris' 800s blow up every 25 miles even after the mandated 25 re-flashes, Yamahas are so heavy they're not allowed on lakes for obvious safety reasons, Ski-Doos Iso bearings only last 3000 miles at best, everybody that runs Amsoil burns down their motors if they even pull it over too fast, and all these people saw it themselves and/or their riding buddies have one. I haven't seen 4 800 XPs all year, much less see 4 of them a weekend getting pulled out of the woods while the owner stopped to talk to me about how he already diagnosed it was a crank bearing failure.
I guess it's just the constant 'i heard' rumors that makes a guy afraid to even ride his sled any further then he wants to walk.
By the looks of all the new 800s on Doo-Talk, my guess is they are a proven bad a$$ sled and that's why all the guys are buying them. I know i'd love one!
