 a post i found on the great ski doo

Posted: Sun Apr 19, 2009 6:17 pm Post subject: My 09 600 Renegade E-tec blew up today

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, I was working today and flying up a lake with the Ski-doo 600 E-tec and the engine seized up. I was about 20 miles up the lake and I had no choice, but to start walking. I hit the start button and it would not turn over at all (seized). So, while thinking about the long walk ahead of me, I hit the starter again and it fired up on one cylinder so I turned around to head back until it would seize up again. This happened every 500 metres and I would have to wait 10 min for it to cool down. Finally, about 2 miles from the truck it quit, never to go again. A guy showed up on his RX-1 and we got the sled back to the truck.
2100 kms
3 jugs of oil
15 mpg (Cdn)
Blown engine
Hard to handle
Not impressed
Didn't mind getting towed by a Yamaha

It would have been a mesmerizing ride on the lake today, bright sunny day, the lake (which is 40 miles long) was table top. Shoulda brought my Yamahas.

 ahaha tony you make me laugh going through all this trouble just to try and tell off a 14 year old. you must be at least 20, i think your the one that needs a life, do you enjoy trying to tell me off, like do you go and show all your friends and think your cool. there are many reasons for that etec story man,and if you knew anything about sleds i wouldn't have to explain that to you. same thing could of happened to my friends nytro man. we went on a trail ride, we were in the powder just fooling around, than his sled turns off, and he cant start it. what do we do ? let it cool down start it go again than it turns off again. see these things just depend on the rider and how they treat the sled. just use common sense man. you should atleast have that. aha man a 550 fan and a phazer, once again common sense on who would win if you knew anything. as for the nytro ill give you that they are on top when it comes to acceleration and what not, but thats just pure four stroke design. but when it comes to the hills, the only time they are climbing in the videos is most of time with a turbo why ? because of their weight isue, once again COMMON sense, anyways cant wait to see what you are going to come up with this time

 the ski doo's blow up becouse the mfg has them running so lean to try and keep up with the fuel economy of the yamaha's and keep up with the new emmisions restrictions,and it could never happen to the nytro because it is a 4 stroke do you even know what that means? yamaha holds the guiness book of worlds record in most milage 42,000 yes thats right 42,000 miles on yamaha vector and the record for most miles in one season 12,000. the motor has never been opened. yamaha also holds the world record for the highest top speed and the world record in grass drags with the lowest e/t and the highest top speed. youtube search "syracuse nationals" and you can see it happen. as for the 4 stroke on hills in the video i think they are racing up a ski hill, duh. and as for the turbo every video i have, the guys have turbos on their sleds wether it is a 2 or 4 stroke. do you really think chris burandt can cat walk a sled like that that is not turbo'd??? see the big ass snorkle sticking out the side of his artic cat. as for my age it is 36 father of two. As for me to get a life I am working right now at the company i own so i can sit here all day long making money to do this. i never post in the evening since i do have a life. as for me trying to impress my friends no one even knows i am on here so i dont know what the heck ur talking about. the only thing i see on any of your posts is you trying to sound like a know it all and bashing everyone. even your fellow country men tell you to shut up. i dont see anyone on here telling me to shut up. as for weight my sled is lighter than a comperable 2 stroke wet, meaning filled with all its fluids. your 14 dude and know nothing, you have done no research on any of your claims. as you can see i can back mine up with facts. and anyway where are the pics of this "race sled" you have? you dont even have a sled do you? again nice sled shovel i like how you made it your own, looks sharp

 Everyone watch out lshannon9 has worked at a Ski-Doo shop since he was 13, he is now 14 and Knows everything. I agree the 600 rev is a pile, I smoke all my buddy's 600revs everytime we race to a 100mph and I also beat a Rev800 to a 100mph but he didnt stop. he was a little embarassed after talking so much shit infront of all his friends on how Yamaha's suck. I am on a 07 Phazer 500 4 stroke yamaha. And I will Race anyone to a gas station, unless they have a yamaha. I have seen 9 broke down Ski-Doo's in one day of riding. They deffinitly have a belt alignment issue and what's up with the body panels popping off. By the way nice sled Pickupashovel. Looks sharp.

 ohhhhh a phazer 500 everyone better watch out for this guy ! you can say what you want about that bull shit belt alignment, it depends on how the rider drives it. my friend has a nytro and blew 6 belts in one season .... yeah what do you have to say about that ? not only that but his was in the shop every other week with electrical problems.... mine well it just went in for a yearly check up than drove out and never had a problem. and as for your little races, another one of my friends has a phazer, lets just say it sees my bumper when ever we go out for a ride.

 u cant compare the iq 440 n ski doo 600 cuz the iq is geard low n shit but lshannon9 ski doo 600s arent tat good my 01 edge 600 smokes them everytime from 0 to 100mph so i would just shut the fuck up. polaris has the best snocross sled n good trail sled. ski doo are ok but not as good as wut pplz think and ya a 600 snocross sled will beat the 440 or they wouldnt even make them dip shit fuck learn wut ur talkin around.

 i know what i am talking about, i have worked at the ski-doo shop since i was 13. i obviously know that a 600 race sled would beat a 440 race sled he just said he could beat his brothers 60 so i doubt it was a 600 race sled. and why dont you go and learn about whats going on in a conversation before you start saying stuff
  • + 0
 yeah yours is kinda a race sled, the clutching and everything is different, i doubt it is a 600 race sled cause it would eat ur little 440 for a snack if it was a race sled. you wouldn't even come close to me if i pulled up next to you.
