  1. Oil/filter change then drive it. If it consumes oil more than normal (check forums) then take note and go after the insurance company/dealer again. Obviously check all fluids, rad, trans, gear as they likely pounded on it pretty good. I feel your pain, however, as I wouldn't want it back either. Good luck.
  2. You're likely right. This has been going on since 06 when I wanted a Dragon bad! I rode Polaris for years and was hoping to upgrade from my 95 XLT but story after story about engines going down was enough for me to look elsewhere. I ended up purchasing my 08 Vector used and haven't looked back. It obviously isn't the ideal sled as it is lacking in suspension and handling compared to newer, rider forward sleds, but I have no worries whatsoever that it will bring me home when I venture out. It's strictly a trail sled but it's no slouch by any means, plus the gas mileage I get with it can't be beat either.
  3. I get that on my POS phone. Even if the pic looks correct on your phone, edit it, rotate it until straight again then save it.

    Sledding Winter 19

    I didn't start my boy on my 600 until a couple years after he got his license. Experience also goes a long ways. He rode a Kitty Cat, a 340 Indy Lite plus he atv'd and whatever else before then too. I have no idea the story of this kid and if he had experience or not but putting an 11 yr old on a newer, (if it was?) 600 cc sled at 11 is pretty idiotic, imo. "Police said in a media release, "The exposure of young people to the operation of motorized vehicles like snowmobiles and ATVs is an important part of their development into safe and competent riders. Even when children are closely supervised, parents must be aware of the potential for disaster that arises when inexperience is combined with the power of these machines. Please take all possible precautions and be mindful of the extreme dangers when teaching your children to operate snowmobiles and ATVs. Smaller, less powerful machines are available and help to minimize the dangers of learning to ride."

    What? The CDN dollar has been in the shitter for months now!
  7. Now that's a gesture and one I have never heard of before. Good on Polaris for doing that. Hopefully they can figure this/these problems out soon.

    That is what is going to kill snowmobiling here in Ontario. Every year, just when you think you've seen it all, more stupidity shows up. I honestly don't know how people can be so stupid nowadays? I know they have always been around, but their numbers have exploded like mad it seems!

    Just like Wynne did to Ontario, Trudope is doing to the rest of the country. Would you or anyone else be talking about an upcoming recession if all these businesses didn't/aren't leaving Canada? And it has a lot more to it than just oil and you know that! Trudope has fucked up doing business in this Country and it will be a tough task to bring them back, but don't worry, a recession should be short lived because we are protected against floods.

    My buddy's son did that in a house league hockey game. He turned his stick upside down and skated around like that for a bit. He was tossed and got a 3 game suspension for abuse of an official.

    Look at the idiot here. He doesn't even answer the question. Great leader he is! We have to be afraid of construction workers but it's OK to bring ISIS members back.
