Recoil update

Called Livingstons in Nh to do the recoil update on my 02zr8 today. Tim was very nice to me but said he would put me on a waiting list to do the work. Said it was from between 6 to 8 weeks till they would give me a call. I called them because the sled was bought there. Imagine how long the wait would be if I bought it somewhere else.

Wow, that's a long time. My dealer had my recoil parts in within a couple days, but that was over a month ago. I know some guys on here have done it themselves or know how to do it, if you are interested you can ask what is involved...Marc

Check that, I was thinking you could just get the 8mm nuts and loctite, but now I think of it I believe there were more parts involved, sorry...Marc

My dealer put on a whole new recoil. I sure wouldn't ride to much without the update. When the recoil goes, so does the stator. I speak from experience. Without warranty it would be an expensive experience. :wacko:
I'd put the recoil on myself before I waited 6-8 weeks.

My dealer advised that it will only be replaced free if it breaks first. They told me to break it before I bring it in to satisfy the AC Warranty Dept. I took it off, inspected it, re-loctited the nut and reinstalled it. It only fails if the nut comes loose and apparently some were never loctited during manufacturing. The updated recoil simply has a thicker bolt which will also fail if that same nut isn't secured and loctited. It'll just take longer to wear through the thicker bolt.

There was a recall on the recoil. Mine blew apart last spring and they replaced it along with the stator that it tore up. I only had 200 miles since the repair but they said the new recoil had a different part # so they replaced it again. I can't imagine AC wants to pay for new stators for all the sleds out there. Is't it interesting how each of us seems to get a different readout from our dealers on these things. AC sent the recall notice to me so it sounds like some dealers are a little laid-back to me.
