It would be interesting to know if this turns out to just be an insurance claim, or if BRP steps up and replaces the sled.  Total loss 1 day after purchase ??  Damn, that sucks....

Just a guess, but first thought is that SkiDoo isn't going to step up to compensate the owner unless there's evidence of a failure in the manufacturing process. Second thought is that there's not enough left of the sled to establish that claim. Wanna bet he goes back and buys another SkiDoo with the insurance proceeds?

Thye all suck when they break.

Breaking is one thing....   Evaporating in a ball of flames 1 day after dropping $xx,xxx is a whole other ball of wax...

Better one day old than one day out of warranty

I don't think that warranty is in play. Insurance, yes, warranty, no. Do you believe that a manufacturing defect caused the fire? Actually that doesn't matter, can you prove that a manufacturing defect caused the fire?
