    I think there is more to this story then we are lead to believe.
    Your sled doesn't run cooking cooking oils, motor oils require at least 1000deg to flash. You can throw a match in, even try to torch motor oil and you'ed be amazed how much torching you need to do before things light's up. The small electrical current from a sled electrical system will never set a sled on fire, unless there is fuel involved. Like a fuel line. But generally a fuel line that blow's and creates a fire has nothing to do with the electrical causing it. Its the fuel hitting the exhaust. It's been my experience that a large majority of sled's fires are people forgetting the park brake on, then driving away, that can cause a sled to burn down. I have seen one go down this way and a few other's cause alot of internal damage. You don't have to go far and belt's don't always slip on the 2 step levers.

    Oh turns out I dropped my sled off for a warranty claim. Dealer says "nope, not covered" and asks for me to pay out of pocket for fix. Call the manufacturers customer service line and guess what? No claim was put in. What a crooked dealer.

    I bought 2015 sp last year 600k on it with lots of extras 9750. That's BC pricing with all the crap dollars added to it to get it on the snow.

    I'm going there this morning to ask for my money back as they charged me 70 dollars to pull the primary clutch. I left it on so they could see that was the clutch that was associated with that machine. Will see how they handle it.

    I don't get why dealers fight warrenty claims. Doesn't make any sense to me.

    Cause they can make more soaking the customer than just getting their cost back from the manufacturer.

    Spoke to the dealer on the phone. Came to the conclusion that I ride too hard to have warranty. He said I must be "pinned all the time" (LOL). Polaris has no record of my sled ever being at this dealer, so I guess I'll try again. If you have to know the dealer I'll say it in PM.
