They can swap parts off new machines, but keep in mind it all depends if the parts are easy to take off, and polaris has just about every service type job catagorized into time frames, for example to replace a front drive axle polaris will pay the dealer .75 hours to remove and replace the axle on a warrantied machine, now if the dealer has to remove and replace from a new machine to give you the part, who pays the tech to do this, comes out of the dealers pocket, not polaris's. Alot of people think on warranty jobs the dealer just submits a work order to polaris, and they pay what ever it is, this is not how it works, polaris and every other brand will only pay certain amount into labour, reguardless of what the actual amount of time put in comes to. My dealer has given me parts off new machines, to get me rollin, but only if it takes 5 mins. to do.
