1200 and v-800 Oil Contamination of TRA Drive Pulley

Dear Ski-Doo® Owner,

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Act, the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Act and other applicable laws.

Which models are involved?

Certain 2009 and 2010 Ski-Doo models.

What is the potential problem?

Due to a possible oil contamination of the drive pulley tapers during the assembly process, the drive pulley governor cup taper may start to slip and lead to a bolt breakage. This may cause debris to come out of the engine compartment at high speed and debris may act as projectiles. This situation can potentially cause serious injuries or even death to riders or bystanders.

To confirm that your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is affected, contact your authorized Ski-Doo dealer or BRP at 1-888-272-9222 between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Eastern time 7 days a week.

In cooperation with Transport Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. and BRP US Inc. (“BRP“) are conducting a voluntary safety recall of certain 2009 and 2010 Ski-Doo models. Our records indicate that you are the owner of a potentially affected vehicle.

What should you do?

He will clean the drive pulley fixed sheave and governor cup tapers and replace the drive pulley bolt and conical spring washer. The dealer will perform this work at no charge to you.
