    Yes this happened to me on my FZS September of last year. This the main reason I got the extended warranty. The bill was over a $1000 to change a 4 dollar part! The dealer had it for 2 months.

    If I remember correctly, there were issues with this on some of the initial production 1.8l skis (SHO's?)
    This can also occur is the magneto/transfer shaft were removed and not reinstalled correctly.

    No recall that I have seen.
