Have the VIN run at any dealer to get the machine's history.

Thanks for the quick reply. Any issues inherent to these machines? I have searched the forums and don't see much info on this particular year. Is this similar to other model years?

I still have an sp850 2015. Been a good bike. The heat shielding is a must. Mine melted the right hand side panel and burned my rain suit before the recall.
The one way bearing in the clutch went out at about 500 miles. I installed a two way from a scrambler and have never touched the clutch in 7500 miles.

Other than those two things, I have not had any problems. I do use my bikes pretty hard but don't abuse them in deep water or deep mud. Mostly mountain riding on the continental divide.

Thanks for the info! How did the bearing issue manifest itself? I'll be taking this for a ride today and would like to know what to look for.

Really hard to shift. Belt squeals when stopped. When it gets really bad, you have to shut off the bike to shift and it wants to keep going forward while at idle. Burning rubber smell when the bearing seizes to the shaft.

Not really a big deal. All three of my sportsman have had the one way go out in less than 1000 miles. MY12 MY15 MY18 xp1000.

My 15 pretty much sits in the garage now except for plowing snow. I ride the 1000 all the time for fun.

Pretty easy repair if needed?

Not really!! Dealer will want around $300. I do them myself for $39. You can do most of the work yourself except breaking apart the clutch. It takes some special tools. I made my own, but I work as a machinist so it was no big deal for me.

Once you have the clutch off, you can take it to the dealer and they can take the spider off and put in the new bearing. Probably for about $100. Depends on the dealer.

This is what I install instead of the one way.https://www.ebay.com/itm/2010-2019-P...kAAOSwOnJcHQ3a

Never had a problem after that.
