    Question Questions???

    What do you guys think?

    I just bought a new 2011 RXT. I got through the first 10 hours and had a slow ski. Due to elevation, I sent my impeller to Erik @ SpeedFreaks. Erik asked if I had messed with my impeller. I did not. He said that it had been grinded on and that someone had messed with it??? I have never touched it except for taking it out and sending to Erik. Here is a pic. How or why would my impeller be like this???

    TIA,
    Jeremy

    Nope, just the 10hr service, because it was free...

    Oh, and why would the dealer do that?

    Mainly to be nice. The local service guy here does it if the prop is nicked any. Do you think they would have done it then. I don't believe they come like that from BRP!

    Makes sense. I was just worried. Didn't have a great deal of confidence in this particular dealer and was wondering if something was messed up, like when the ski was being put together they grabbed a used impeller off the shelf by mistake or something like that.

    So @ the 10 hr service this was probably done. Thanks MSRXP for easing my mind...

    I would vote yes that it was done. That are cast and installed. They do not hand file them. I would say that the dealer inspected the pump per the 10hr service and saw a few nicks and decided to handle it rather than replace it. Costs them less... I would bet the farm that it was done then... I have NEVER seen an OEM prop being filed from BRP. JMO! Good luck!
