Re: XP melting poll

Mine didn't show signs of heat after wot runs it was after a slow technical ride where the fan cut in a few times. I'll be doing something before mine actually melts like others have.

Re: XP melting poll

OH, the way I drive. Although since I like turning, sliding and not crashing in the dunes, I suppose I feather it more than a guy driving 8 miles down a desert road.

Re: XP melting poll

i think your ridding habits makes all the difference in if they are melting.if u do a lot of slow ridding no air flow.i do a lot of fast ridding and have no melting what so ever

I agree, I also think the poll is mis-worded. The best answer for me as the poll questions were asked was I don't think it's a problem because for me it isn't, but if it were worded it's a problem, but I haven't experienced it I would have picked that answer.

Re: XP melting poll

Mine melted yesterday during a hill climb on a wooded trail. Has anyone contacted the dealer about this? Will they replace the piece that melted? I plan on contacting them tomorrow about mine.

Yeah sorry the poll isn't worded how you would like it. I guess you could start your own poll and word it how you want. If I could go in and change it I would, but that's a no go. So I guess you can either pick the closest one or choose none of them and complain about it some more.

Yes they should replace the piece as long as they are not backordered.

Re: XP melting poll

I did not think it was going to be a problem until I serviced mine after the Memorial Day weekend at Waynoka. It got pretty hot on Sunday and that must have been when mine melted. Going to do the heat shield or an exhaust wrap.

Re: XP melting poll

There is less people having problems than I initially thought. I still think I would do the heat shield just to be safe. We will se if polaris does something to fix it in the newer models.

Re: XP melting poll

Hey Jarhead,

I wasn't trying to be critical of your poll question, only clarify that the problem is worth watching but that I hadn't experienced a problem. Your poll is a smart.....You know where there's smoke, there's fire! Let's ride!
