Drivetrains are built commercially tough. With regular oil changes they will work flawlessly for years. When you have trouble, we can repair or rebuild your drivetrain to factory standards. We supply all original parts for the do it yourselfers. I have instructions, pictures, and a toll free helpline to help get you back on the water.
