I was having a new engine installed in my 2010 RXTX. It was being replaced because of two overheats blistering the paint and then the block started corroding. My dealer got a BRP remanned engine and while he was testing it it locked. A second engine is on the way. Has anyone heard of such a thing? Out of fifteen years of owning Sea Doo's Iv'e never had such trouble. And it ain't this dealer's fault, who's service is great. Has anyone had such troubles? This machine seems to be cursed.

That sucks man.....I have never had to deal with that but I feel ya. Maybe get the new engine in that beast and then sell it? Maybe you got the Friday afternoon ski?

BRP Reman engine locked up... HMMM...
I thought that kind of thing only happened to motors from other engine shops... or to ppl that rebuild them in their kitchen or on the front porch...
Is it safe to assume this is a salt water only ski?

We have installed at least 100 BRP remans over the years and never had a problem like this. I have had one go boom, but BRP set the timing wrong and it came apart due to vibration in less than 1 hour.

Yup, it's a salt water ski. The engine was 20 minutes old and blew while the shop was testing it in fresh water. The shop is outstanding and as Tiny said they've done replacements and this is rare. I agreed with BRP that a BRP re-manned engine would be provided. It's just a bad unit. Shit happens but this is unsettling. I take long tours every weekend and want to be able to enjoy riding, not worrying about failure. Between my friend and I we have had 11 Sea Doo's. The other ten were bullet proof with only one minor electrical issue in 2000.

Well... I guess i kinda called the salt water thing... All the problems you are having are a result of salt. How to you rinse/flush after you ride? Sounds like the after ride procedures could have more to do with your problems than getting a bad ski... Driveline, throttle, ride plate fittings, intercooler, and engine corrosion all sound to me like salt damage...
