2019 Turbo S Dynamix issue

I have around 200 miles on my Turbo S now and have to say the stock suspension is terrible. I am not sure if there is something wrong with my dynamix system or if it is just that bad to begin with. So here is what happens. I mostly ride on tough technical trails and rock crawl. I am not a guy that rides fast and I never ride in the dunes. I mostly trail ride at slow speeds. So here is the problem I have. When looking at the dynamix screen on comfort mode everything goes to 0 and stays there. No matter what I do or how fast I ride it never moves from 0 and feels like it is on 10. You feel every bump or rock on the trail or road. In Sport I get some movement from 3-5 and it stiffens very little on steering input, braking and accelerating. It doesn't move much no matter how fast I am going. On firm everything goes to 10 and stays there.

I rode 90 miles on Sunday and I would rate the trail a 4 out of 10 with a few pretty rough spots but mostly just desert and mountain trails with lots of rocks and bumps. There was also a few high speed sections on roads. That ride was 90 miles of getting beat up pretty bad by this car that is suppose to have the most advanced suspension going. The XP1k I had with an eibach Dual rate spring set would have easily gobbled up everything this trail had to offer. I am at a point where I don't know what to do with this thing. I have checked everything I am capable of and everything seems fine. I can go into the test mode with the key on engine not running and it looks like every thing works fine. I fire up the car and drive it and it's like the dynamix is not working at all. I am going to take it in and have polaris check it out. I want to get the springs replaced with a true dual rate setup and get the shocks revalved but I don't want to do anything until I can figure out if the dynamix system is working properly.

Can someone please tell me how their dynamix system works so I know what it's supposed to work correctly. What are you seeing on your dymanix screen it each mode and how the car handles normal conditions. My wife was very unhappy with how it rode and even made the comment that we should have kept the old machine because this one was terrible. She won't go riding with me again until I get this fixed.

Re: 2019 Turbo S Dynamix issue

Definitely something wrong. I’m comfort mode mine rides great and is the first compliment I get when people get a ride. If your in comfort mode and hit the brakes the front won’t show anything? Mine goes to 1 instantly and stiffer if I hit them hard. Definitely should have some numbers moving in comfort mode

It gets way stiffer with aftermarket springs. I did ST stage 4 springs and cruising speed was way harsher. Does your dynamix work as the OP described?

Re: 2019 Turbo S Dynamix issue

I have the S and my brother has one, we had the same problem, every little ditch you would cross the wheels were off the ground also, we both installed the ST level 3 springs, that kit is only top springs and cross overs, both of us are very happy with the ride now, I also added the Walker Evans links on my ride, we rode 3 days my brother was following me and watched how much better the wheels stayed on the ground compared to his, he is adding them to his. With the links you get some body role in curves if you switch to firm it has no role at all. With these new springs you have 3 modes that really work now

Yours was either not installed/set properly or you got the wrong springs.

Back to the OP, The solution to your problem is to swap out the springs/coils. Iíd recommend Eibach or Shock Therapy. It will make a world of difference. Stock springs are like bricks that just get worse with time and sag.

This really surprises me!

I don't experience any of this. I can ride 10 hours now and feel like I would love another 2!! Use to feel beat up after an 8 hour ride in my XP

That's running whoops at up to 60 MPH, rock Crawling, Dunes a couple hours - riding all different terrain over 3 days 6 to 10 hour days.

I absolutely love the Dynamix - we feel a total difference when switching between the modes and I definitely have stiffening in comfort mode when cornering hard, hitting brakes hard and if I gun it!! Haven't even thought about upgrading springs.

Oh and we Love the Rise we feel in the machine when switching to firm - use this rock crawling A Lot, or just when we see someone ahead bottom out - Love It!!

Same here. I just got the turbo S after trading in my 17í XP1K with ST stage 4 springs. It was a sweet ride, but the 17ís ride didnít even come close to the turbo S. Iíve put about 200 miles in the last 3 - 4 days and couldnít be happier. Sorry that hasnít been your experience. Doesnít make sense. By the way, outside of seats, mirrors, and an S & B separator, itís 100% stock. Iím also in Arizona, and ride high desert bumpy stuff. Super plush relatively speaking.

Did you add a bunch weight or something? Iím not sure how much the springs can take. All modes work as advertised for me. Good luck.

Re: 2019 Turbo S Dynamix issue

I took it to the dealer today and they ran some diagnostics on it and could find nothing wrong with it. They did the re calibration on it anyways and guess what it's working now. Go figure that one out. The service manager came in and said the technician just took it for a test ride and everything was working as advertised. I told him to go get the technician and lets go for a ride. I jumped in the passenger seat and we took off. Everything seemed to be working just fine so I loaded it up and took her home. I am going riding on Saturday so we will see how it works. If I still don't like it it's going in to be revalved and resprung on Monday.

I need this thing to be plush at low speed for riding tough technical trails and rock crawling. I am not a high speed guy and I don't go to the dunes. This machine will rarely see above 40 mph. I know this thing begs to be pushed hard but that is just not the way I ride. If you push hard on the kind of terrain I like to ride in the dynamix will be the least of your worries as you will be broke on the side of the trail.

Good luck man. I hope the "fix" works out well for you.

Re: 2019 Turbo S Dynamix issue

Did You notice it changing the number on the screen since in the shop or does it stay on 0 at slow speeds. How about braking and accelerating from a stop does it change. I was thinking you have to be driving over a certain mph for it to change. I’m having the same issue, I’m looking into having it re calibrated since it worked for you. Any feedback is appreciated.

I own a 2018 and a 2019 turbo s, my first impression of my 2018 was exactly what you are describing, too damn stiff at low speed. I eventually removed the front sway bar completely, added the walker links to the rear and found that the ride height was sitting at about 13" with me in it engine running on comfort mode- I added enough preload to the stock springs to get ride height to the advertised 16" ground clearance and what a difference! These shocks are internal bypass so the need to be sitting at the correct ride height to work properly. When I purchased my 2019 turbo S I did not even ride it until I set it up exactly like my 2018- no front sway bar, walker links in rear and added pre load to get correct ground clearance and I could not be happier with the ride!

In comfort it stays at 0 at low speeds but it will change if cornering hard, braking, and accelerating. For it to change when cornering you have to be driving at some speed. In sport mode it changes for everything now.

Carsner2004

I am in the process of doing exactly what you did to your two machines. Yesterday I pulled the front shocks off and took the front sway bar off the machine. I set the factory preload on the shocks and reinstalled them. I will set the ride height at 16". Then I will do the rear the same way. I think I will invest in some walker links as soon as I have the $$ to do so. For now I am going to make some quick disconnects so I can also disconnect the rear sway bar and see how it does.

I am going on a tough technical ride tomorrow and will be able to really see how it goes. If I still don't like how it rides the shocks will come back off to get re-valved and re-sprung on Monday.
