i have a 2003 blair morgan with less than 2000 miles and the pistons are scuffed!!! nice job ski doo!! i called a dealer and he said wow i have seen the 600s but not 800s? i told him to come check out this page. he said it will be covered, they can fix it in oct or i can bring the parts and get new ones asap but i fix it ( not a problem).
lets get a list going with names and serial #s going on the 800s
im being told its normal? no mods other than a can on it, i spoke with dynoport explaind the "marks" rich told me dont wory about it!! he also told me there is nothing wrong with that motor and the peolpe who seem to think so are crazy! as the head goes he said dont do anything to it unless you trail port it ,if you do you could be looking at a melt down. as for pipes he seems to think its a big mistake to put twin pipes on any ski doo twin! also told me the motor is the same as any 2003 800 twin rev!
called the crank shop and kurt told me its a HO engine? that the head needs work and will pick up some hp but his dyno didnt show the extra hp? he also said the pistins are ok!
talked to rkt and hes telling me the pistons and head kit he has will give up to 12 extra hp for 600. bucks? he tells me the head is junk "dynoport says its ok"? dynoport tells me port and head work will give 8 /10 hp? for around 800?
three diffrent SO CALLED experts? you figure it out? ???
I love Ski doo, so don't get me wrong...but they do have a quality and design issue. They only run with one ring which can cause blowby to the crankcase. This problem is made worse by the amount of piston to jug clearance. The boys who know like Union Bay say to have your cylinders replated to tighten up that tolerance. You might want to get a service manual and check your conditions. As far as mods go, the "thing" can is the way to go. Do a search on the "thing" on snowest.com and you'll like what you hear from everyone that is running them. My dimes worth.
Rich Dalys advice gets my vote!!! After my crankshop experience I wont do any business with them... I ilke the RKT head but their hard to jet for flatlanders and Kelsey at RKT thinks Arctic Cats are a great sled and polaris is the bottom of the barrel....you figure the rest out.
believe me it's a tough world out there when it comes to finding good mechanics that aren't blowing hot air out there you know what.as for tt670 I think you need to figure it out ,don't believe everything your told.polaris is far from the bottom,i personally think every brand is at there peak and no one has any advantage over the other.but the only way to know is to experiment witt each brand and not to listen to some brand loyal goon
