Hey, Polaris, here's a fix.... Spec .095" or .120" wall tubing for your darn cages.

These things are now more than fast enough to take sprint car level tumbles, it's time to give them a cage that's more appropriate rather than the minimum ROPS spec.

Re: Well Captain This Blow’s

I remember a couple years ago car shopping for my daughter. Found a nice use CPO BMW X1 that was listed for sale on the dealer's website. Went down to make an offer and was told they couldn't sell it because it had the Takata air bags. Had no answer as to why it was listed for sale on their website. SMH

On the upside, you might be able to find a low mileage used one that somebody wants rid of cheap.

Re: Well Captain This Blow’s

There is one group they certainly are not listening to.
Those of us who have asked for quality control to become a priority; who want to see a new machine released that doesn't start down the recall road too many of us have lived with.
Frankly, it is a bit more than a bit frustrating.
Have they learned nothing from the past few years?

Re: Well Captain This Blow’s

It is interesting. Last year (2017) at the world Polaris meeting in Las Vegas, Polaris more or less said that they were temporarily acquiescing the top end of the performance segment away to Can-Am for their X3 Turbo (this was pre-S) and completely focusing on quality control.

Americans don't demand or expect quality so it will not be in the business model of the big successful companies.

Re: Well Captain This Blow’s

Now that is interesting.

Polaris is rapidly entering a damned if they do damned if they don't place.
Stock on showroom floors is being pulled but they also have a fair number of these out in the world already. What are they going to do...buy those back?
Is the fix so elaborate that the machines must be returned to the factory?

Holy cow...

I hope for everyone's sake they get this right, completely, and move forward.
I want to see the competition between the manufacturers continue, we all benefit from that.

Re: Well Captain This Blow’s

The only reason polaris would take the s off the floor is to bolt a new cage on. There is no way polaris is going to stop selling these machines, it is the best one they have built yet. I like mine a lot better than the x3xrs that I had. Just my opinion. Although a 8 or 10" longer wheel base would be nice.

Sounds like he is feeding you a bunch of BS. The fix part number (new cage) came out 2 days ago with the ability to pre order the parts.

Re: Well Captain This Blow’s

nothing will change until people stop buying their products. By the looks of it thats not going to happen. Go buy something else and send your sales guy the picture. Once enough people do that things will change.

Re: Well Captain This Blow’s

Read the other thread, sounds like they have moved in the right direction. The shipping weight of the replacement cage, complete, is over 170 lbs.
It sounds like perhaps they have built a cage worthy of the machine. Lets hope so.
Really want them to get things right.
