Dealer. I'm having the impeller and sea strainer on my 2012 X2 upgraded at my dealer this week. Dropped off the boat yesterday. Call your dealer.

What does the new strainer do? Didn't have problems on ours.

Its does not allow the water in the system to drain out when put on a trailer or hoist. The currant strainer drains when the intake is not in the water. Sometimes when it drain air gets trapped in the system and causes the impeller to fail rather quickly

Ah ok, and because of that air the impeller runs a few seconds dry every time. Wich speeds up the wear on it If i'm correct.

Do the dealers have a service bulletin of it?

Yes you are correct, there is no service bulletin on the issue. It is a running change in the build.

Its all based on the dealer to handle with the customer. MasterCraft is providing the parts, no contact with the customers. Ilmor has nothing to do with it. MasterCraft is taking control of the issue and helping since Ilmor does not see an issue with the current set up.

I think it depends on how much you dig around for info on your boat or how good a relationship you have with your dealer. Depending on the dealer, they won't know every owner with an effected model in your area and if you never bring your boat in for service they will never know to advise you on the change or any service bulletins that effect your boat. A service bulletin is not the same as a recall, so the manufacturer doesn't have to notify you. When I brought my X2 in for the impeller and sea strainer upgrade there were 2-3 other things they had service bulletins for they they also worked on under warranty. The dealer is running a business and they only have so much time and money to do so many things.

>> For example, some dealers (like Bruce, above) are on TT and super helpful. If life is working out correctly this benefits them in the end with loyal customers and positive feedback. Not all dealers put in the effort, some just can't.

I think Bruce has the MCOCD and customer OCD - Everyone I have met at ACW is awesome - let me sit in boats no problem when I visit the stores...
