Bought me a Polaris!

Postby BruteForce » Thu May 16, 2013 6:16 pm

Yup! After being a Kawi guy for over 10 years now, I decided instead to buy a 2013 Polaris Sportsman 850 XP (limited Browning Edition). Wow! What a difference in the power department. Not a fan of the seat, but everything else is just awesome!

..been gone awhile as work (resigned my old job last Sept, took a 2 month sabbatical (riding in Utah, of course), then started a new job in Feb of this year.

Congrats on your new machine! Looking forward to pictures.

Damned new PoPo is in service again. Second time for the same issue. Riding down the trail, get a whiff of fuel, check-engine light comes on and the machine damned near throws you over the handlebars as it comes to a slow crawl.

First time in service, they replaced the MAP sensor.. No idea what they've found yet.

How annoying! Nothing like making a choice on something and have it pooch out on you. We bought a ski boat once and on the acceptance ride, the thing came to a grinding halt. The poor dealer had to paddle us in (all the while insisting he would do it, no help needed). Problem? Stuck carb float! It made me always worry that pounding some wake or something would do me in somewhere on a lake. Always had tools just in case.

Hope this gets dialed in for you. Looking forward to some pix!

Picked up my Polaris on Monday. ECM + another MAP sensor were replaced. Additionally, dealer service tech. told me the position of my GPS mount (right side of handlebar) was causing the throttle cable to move slightly, contributing to the check engine conditions.

Fingers crossed my machine is fixed because this Friday, I'm driving 200 miles South to hit the Paiute trail and will be riding a ~120mile loop!
