Re: RMK slider wear
Thx for the responses...
I finally got all my parts and will be out this Friday to see if it will correct Polaris' major screwup.
My dealer was "unaware of any problems". I asked him if anyone was actually riding any of the RMKs that he sold. Plus he didn't have any hifax in stock!! I don't think there is any way the hifax would have lasted the way it was set up (per Polaris spec.). I loosened the track about 1-1/2 turns on each side before I even took it out. Of the 150 miles, only about 30-35 were on trails. Have now loosened the track up more (approx. to what Chuck suggested above) after putting on the new hifax, pads and extra wheels.
I've had several Polaris in the last few years, but if this is the way Polaris delivers and warrantees a sled in its 4th year of production, up theirs! Maybe there's an nice blue Yammi in my future.
P.S. If those new closed-window tracks are so good, why is Polaris trying to unload them? A local dealer (Xtreme - Erie, Colo.) has them advertised in the paper for the last 6 weeks for $250 delivered to your door!
