2008 Rev XP Driveshaft

Mar 6/09
If you have heard about the 2008 Ski-Doo Rev XP driveshaft issue. Here are the straight goods. There was a slight change in the formula of the metals used on the driveshaft components during production. The result was an axle that was stiffer but more brittle than the originals that were rode and tested last year. The spin weld that passed all the testing has been failing under extreme service, IE racing, mountain riding, a lot of full throttle lake running, or hard running with studded tracks(heavier). There was a Race Bulletin published regarding this issue. It explains how to simply weld up both ends to reinforce the spin weld to prevent any failure. clic here to view this 2008 Ski-Doo Race tip# 5
All 2008 Ski-Doo Rev XP driveaxles need to be replaced. Please take yours immediately to your selling dealer for free replacement. This is necessary even if the axle was replaced or welded in 2008.
