    STX-15F parts prices went up big time

    I have been waiting until spring to order parts to rebuild the engine on my 15F. The prices on the Crankshaft and Crankcase have gone up big time. I think this is strange considering the price drop on this model in the showroom.

    Here are the prices I pulled from Babbitt's website a while back:

    Crankshaft - $693.58
    Crankcase - $786.06

    Here are the prices today:

    Crankshaft - $828.90
    Crankcase - $939.44

    I have confirmed with Riva that there has been a price increase. My rebuild just went up $300 with taxes. WTF!!!!

    I do like the 15F because of the fuel range but $900 would rebuild my motor at least twice plus some ...which is why I went stxr...

    IM thinking of buying another next year and not sure If I want a four stroke due to high prices of a rebuild.

    I just dont know how many are having problems....of course on here I think you here of more problems than the ones that are always running.

    Is your unit stock....what happened to it.??

    My unit is stock. The dealer didn't install a new impellor properly before I purchased it, it came out, pushed the crank out of place and after a while did a number on the engine.

    so did this all happen after your warranty expired?
    or was it a maintenance fix that failed?

    and Im sure parts prices are increasing because:
    1. its summer time approaching and people are going to begin working on getting this skis ready, including those they broke last summer. demand increase = price increase
    2. the ski model has been out for like 5 years now. parts are starting to be needed as wear and tear takes its toll. notice how late model (but a few years old) cars/trucks get stolen right and left. Parts are in demand and profit is to held from stealing and stripping them down.

    The price of gas and steel is blamed for everything else,so why not this.
