Problems with my new 900 XP LE
I just bought a new 900 EX Browning edition last week, its my first UTV and I have owned nothing but Honda ATV's since 1985 and honestly have had zero issues with them. I have 90 miles on my new toy, LOVE the ride, Love the power steering, Love the power....ordered a cab and heater for it as well.
I went to ride yesterday (machine had around 60 miles on it with no problems) and noticed it did not feel right when I backed it off the trailer. I put it in high and stepped on the gas and it barely moved, put back in park and tried again and same thing...rode it back and forth a little and it started to get better but it was slipping bad. I turned the machine off, checked oil and it was good, saw no obvious problems and tried it again...after about 5 minutes of slipping it started to act better so we rode about 30 miles and it did not seem to slip again . I started to notice that when you put it in reverse it "slams" into gear when you step on gas, sometimes it rattles likes it hung between gears and the locks in, it has a loud "whine" when going down a hill at a idle, really loud. It has started making a loud noise when you crank it up a very loud "pop. pop. pop" almost sounds like muffler is hitting something but its not then it stops and then it starts again but seems to go away after you get some speed going. I am also not sure the 4x4 is working correctly, in high when you out it in 4x4 it really does not feel any different even when turning on hard ground.
I really feel like there is a serious tranny problem with this machine.
I know its uder warranty but I am not getting a warm fuzzy feeling for Polaris right now....anyone else had these issues? maybe I just got a lemon?
