    Thumbs down Brand New GTR 215 ... Dealer says blown motor!

    Just did a few searches and I can't find anything similar for a brand new GTR 215 but 30 mins in the water after buying two new GTR 215s one wouldn't restart after being shut off. Finally it cranked over and barely ran, then shut back off...

    Took it to the dealer and they said the piston went through the side of the block and they are waiting to hear back from Sea doo for permission to pull the motor.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Any input on this ....


    Thanks

    Did the ski ever flip or take on water?

    No, never rolled.

    Assuming this ski has an intercooler, it may have sprung a leak and caused this problem. Water in the intake system is called "hydrolocking" the engine and has the same results you have!

    See doo good about "buy backs" or replacing the NEW ski?

    I don't think they will give you a new ski, they will probably just replace that motor.

    If you honestly did nothing wrong. Don't sweat it!

    Nothing wrong so I am not worried on that end.... I more or less wanted to know if anyone has heard of this being a problem especially with less then an hour on a ski...

    It's likely some sort of factory defect or something missed during the engine assembly process. We never see these type post on the forum unless the ski has been submerged. I would be curious to see what the culprit was.

    Damn man that sucks! Hopefully the dealer takes care of it. Where are you from and what dealer was it?
