    2011 sea doo timing chain OMG

    I just recently built a 2011 gti turbo and 2 days ago found out that seadoo has a recall on almost all 2011 skis. here are a few pics on what it looks like.

    the right one is the crap one that is 2 thousands thinner.
    the left one is from a 2009 gti.

    you can clearly see that its no where near the same quality as the older ones. the links dont even look hardned.

    Which is which? you say left and right, but the two chains are top and bottom? Is the lighter one the crap one, or the dark one?

    What are the actual measurements; I want to go look at the ones I put in my skis this spring.....

    I would say the darker one is the good one.

    I'm in the same boat. Fixed a ski for a friend and that timing chain took forever to arrive! Now I want to know if the chain is a junker and swap it out before he has an issue.

    Where did you get the recall info? I checked the Seadoo site and there is nothing recent listed
