Re: Amsoil Ironman GNCC - Crawfordsville, IN - Oct 20,21
We parked it there because it was the only spot available by my buddy's camp.
Yes, I did want people to see it to warn others. Polaris failed to install heat shields for the first 6mo of production. I would happily share this info and talked to many people about it.
Polaris had a TSB notice that was not conveyed to RZR owners but was sent to the dealers instructing them to install heat shields. I had it at the dealer for service 3 times after the dealers had notice.
If they have a known melting issue they failed to address then it is Polaris issue. They have had several others burn too even with stock muffler.
Polaris did nothing for me but I did have insurance.
I support sxs racing, host a race and spent over $150,000 with Polaris. If people like me don't share these issues, then the public wont know since Polaris didn't notify their customers.
We raced ironman again and had a blast as usual.
I met a lot of good people and factory reps because we brought and shared with others.
If I just melted it down and didn't share with others than one of the others that learned of the problem through my sharing may get hurt or suffer unecessary damages. Sometimes you just gotta speak up for safety of others.
My 2011 XP quickly burnt to the ground because Polaris and my dealer failed to notify me of the TSB notice for heat shield. Now it's just a pile of metal.
Just bought an 12' XP and definately installing a heat shield and fire extinguisher.
