    **OFFICIAL SVHO Manufacturer defects thread**

    I figured it would be a good idea to centralize some known problems such as timing chains, flywheel bolts, ect here in one location. If we compile the documentation it could lead to clues as to certain build dates or scenarios to be cautions of.

    An example of the report should include the following at a minimum:

    Example
    Problem: Broken timing chain
    Year: 14
    Ski: FX SVHO
    Hours: 22
    Build Date: 1/14
    Location: Miami, FL
    Stock/Mods: Mods
    If Mods Include them here): R2, Ribbon Del, Intake/Exhaust, Retainers Only
    Max RPM (If Mods): 8500
    Boost (If Mods): 14
    Ride Style (Rec, Drag, General Racing, Combination): Combination Rec / Drag

    *****Anything else pertaining to the issue include that as well. Example: Paint peeling (Location and salt/fresh water can be a contributor..) We are looking for details *****

    If anyone recommends I add to the above let me know. Please participate if you have experienced a failure. The incidents are becoming more prominent as time progresses and quite a few people would appreciate the opportunity to find, and possibly correct, known issues before they take place. My hope is that patterns may develop within this thread giving us an idea of the causes...Please do not post here if its hear say, factual known occurrences only. Thanks all

    Was on it's maiden voyage. I'll post the engine build date later, under cover now. I know the DOM of the ski is 6-14.
