Rotax Aircraft Engine Manuals: All manual Editions and Revisions are current as of 27-Mar-2017.
Ski-Doo Snowmobile Manuals All of the manuals listed below are full factory service manuals (unless otherwise noted) with hundreds of pages containing step by step instructions, full wiring diagrams and detailed illustrations on how to repair, rebuild or maintain virtually anything to your sled. 2018 Kia Amanti Repair Manual. The DELUXE versions contain full exploded views with part numbers, flat rate times, racing handbook and content for most of the models covered by the manual.
Boy me, I'll bet you're a real pain in the ass. So, you buy a used 7 year old snowmobile, even though it only will go about 30 miles an hour, and you complain when you have to do some repairs to this 7 year old snowmobile. Then you bitch when ski-doo won't give you a new motor on a 7 year old snowmobile.
You can't be serious, can you? And you expect the pictures to all be exact in the manual? And you lump all Rotan motors into one big heap and call them all junk? I hope I never sell you anything in the future, even something like a fork. After 30 years you would piss and moan that one tine is slightly bent. With your attitude, I'm sure ski-doo and all their shareholders are very happy that you are choosing Polaris over ski-doo. You may receive a letter from Polaris offering you money to be used towards a non-Polaris snowmobile though.

I >went to the dealer and asked what this piece was for.
He brought up a >microfiche for my machine THIS MICROFICHE WAS NOT THE SAME AS IN MY SHOP >MANUAL and lo and behold there was the 'sleeve' >THIS SLEEVE WAS NOT on my engine in the first place. That is why the >flywheel flew off and stripped the keyway. It is supposed to be placed >on the PTO side in between the 2 bearings. When my husband removed the >crankshaft the 2 bearings were tight together next to the gears. This >threw the entire engine off balance and at any time could have exploded >when the machine was running, causing severe engine damage and possibly >the rider may have been injured as well. >I looked into the history of the machine and any warranty claims.
>Here is what I found: Nextgen Training Manual. >1 week after purchasing the new machine the throttle cable was replaced. >>1 month after purchase the belt was replaced. >2 months after purchase BOTH pistons were replaced. >After that I am sure the original owner sold this machine.
One would >have to wonder why all this needed to be replaced on such a new engine. >>ANYONE WOULD THEN KNOW THAT BOMBARDIER SCREWED UP!!!!
