I have a 2010 xtz with a gen 1 engine and a transmission noise,and 110 miles out of warranty. Does the engine have to be completely disassembled? thanks everyone!
Sounds like the secondary thrust washers failed like mine and many others have. You might want to negotiate for a new motor since the washer will work it's way through the oil galleys and most likely take a chunk off of one or both pistons. Also the new short block has a redesigned secondary transmission without the thrust washers in it and a better lubrication system. I would not chance the rebuild and another failure. Good luck to you.I have bad gears and brgs on the cross shaft with a black grit and metal shavings in the pan and arctic cat wants to rebuild it,seems like they want to band aid it until my warranty runs out!!! I don't want to have a 2010 with 500 miles being rebuilt!
Sound advice from a guy that has been through this before.DLA67 and DIESEL , you both are going thru the same run around crap i got from my dealer last year with mine . mine was making horrible noise in the transmission and they assured me that they " compared " the noise from my trans to a brand new machine and it was the same ! so i had to run it out another 150 miles or so until it took out the entire transmission and lower end on the motor ! i then got the newest latest short block assembly replaced under warranty .i feel your pain believe me ! my opinion is all of those gen 1 transmissions are going to **** out if you do anything more than use them to check the mailbox , AC knows theres is a problem with them but they refuse to publicly admit it .
if you guys do get ahold of a AC rep dont just bash and bad mouth the dealer . be professsinal about it and remain calm . dont demand that your motor be replaced . work with them . ask to have the motors removed and opened up and inspected . DLA67 you know you have problems , theres a good chance depending on the failed parts that the parts and labor will equal or be greater than a new replacement, as was in my case . work with your shops and make a deal to open up your motors if they dont find anything wrong then youll be out a little cash for the R&R but it will give you piece of mind . if there is something wrong then you have a warrantable claim .
Soaz did yo have a warranty or did AC cover it anyway? What did the new short block cost? Thanks
