Oil is slung away from bearing and could run dry.

I have just one word of advise if you have a 2009 1000cc cross fire check your bearings you will have some gone I am sure of it checked out 4 of them in the past 2 weeks and they all needed that 5203 bearing.

It sucks but this should be on anyone's maintenance list that doesn't want to be stuck out in the middle of nowhere with a blown up box. It is not terribly complicated to do but a little time consuming. Worth the peace of mind.

OK, I had my 06 700 DD blow up under warranty. I had them fix it, it leaked. I fixed it, It leaked. I got it to seal changed the fluid like I do every year, It leaked. Now you are telling me my 09 800 xf is gonna have problems. So I REALLY am nervous about crackin that baby open to fix a bearing that may or may not go out. Really how big of a problem is it? I would rather just drain and refill without cracking this thing! IF I replace the bearing can't I just put in a bearing instead of lathing and all this other bla bla? Honestly can it just go in and work?

Default another 2009 DD with 1200 miles goes bust a month after 1 year warranty is up.

seems the reverse bearing (the one all the way in the back) went out on it.

Is this mostly the '09 XFIRES that are having this problems??? 800 or 1000?? Don't like the sounds of this ...I have a 09 with 2000 miles on! changed fluids at 1300, is this a update from CAT or not??!!
