Then I stand corrected... JC. I am sorry you have experienced these issues with not only the Polaris, but other brands as well.
I only use my unit for play. During hunting season it is used to patrol my mtn property. Just yesterday I bailed mine out the dealership for a miserly 400 and something dollars. Inspecting the whole machine out plus full servicing oil change. I just about choked up my ham and eggs! With only 63 hours they put in a new drive belt, the old one looked pretty good to me, not cracked but used some.
I lost my part-time job 8 months ago and at my age, I know few will hire me. Unless it be a midnight position at a stop-n-rob. Tell you the truth I am somewhat smitten over the Yamaha TW200 trail bike. I believe after spending a couple of hours on a TW, it takes me back to simpler times when motorcycles were not complicated with catalic converters computers and such. The TW is the last of the mohicans. Carbureted simple Simon air cooled. Reminds me of an updated Honda 90/110 from years ago.
I could use the little bike to ride to the market, grab a burger, even head-off to the greasy spoon were my favorite waitress scratches my bald head~calls me Honey! Money is only so much and goes so far. I have often thought of selling my Rzr, and now I'm rethinking should I?
And yes, I own a perfectly wonderful Wrangler Jeep. With all the amenities and comforts of home. The wife's favorite mode of off-road transportation.
Here in our Valley, San Joaquin Farms is experiencing horrid losses due to sprinkler crop and equipment theft. Years ago I tried creating a nighttime low level interdiction and Surveillance patrol but only managed to run afoul of every regulator this side of the Mississippi. The Farm Bureau loved it! But? That was about all who did...
