    2011 rxt-x engine died

    a friend of mine, bought it new, this year, maybe in march.
    after almost all of the season went by, his engine died.
    sc,oil. everything was ok.
    are the 260 engines defective ? or have any weaknesses?
    we wont know until they open up the engine what happened.
    (wont be in 2-3 more weeks as the marinas partly closed)
    thanks in advance.

    Do a little reading about timing chains. Not sure if this is the issue but could be a starting point.

    Good question; not sure of the answer. I would think that BRP would send all registered owners with affected models a letter regarding this.
    If in question, you should be able to call your dealer and have him look it up.

    I used to work at a dealership and they have not taken away my brp or yamaha logins yet. If you send me your vin I can look it up in the system.
