In regards to the 2008 Ski-Doo XP, how did BRP fix the issue of the drive shaft problem?
I heard and saw so many stories & actual cases yet when I went to other dealers they absolutly would not admit that there was such a problem.
I am terrified about buying one so I’m going to buy an ’07 Ski-Doo instead.
Thanks for your email!
There was – obviously – a random problem with drive axles on XP’s – it was not just Summits.
However, not every axle will break. There was a defect in the welding of the spline stump onto the hollow tube axle portion of the shaft. Some of the welds were bad.
If you buy a used XP it has been our experience that the axles – if they were going to break – would do so in the first 2000 miles.
There was no distinction between an 800 or a 600 – if was going to break – it would.
Hope this helps,
