My first ATV. Just wasn’t getting enough use out of the sled.
Took it for my first ride yesterday. Much smoother ride than I expected, that’s good.
Towards the end of my ride I decided to hit some 12” deep puddles at a higher rate of speed. Was fun but I sucked a little water in through the intake. Didn’t fully kill the engine, kept her running so I limped it the short distance home.
So I know I got some relatively clean water through the intake. Judging by the muddy prints inside the box I think my box drain is letting some blow in as well. Most likely throughout the entire ride. Not a great drain plug design. Loose fit, very soft rubber. Might hold static water but spraying water has considerable force.
A rubber cork from the inside would be a better upgrade
Any more professional upgrades? There’s not much room underneath the box for most upgrades I see on the web.
As for the intake I’m not looking for snorkels at this time. I prefer my vision unobstructed. Gotta wonder why Polaris doesn’t do a 180 with the intake and have it facing backwards. Would think that would help some without losing the height.
Also, what pressure are you rock guys putting in your front tires? I can feel the tire compress enough to hit the rim on a few occasions. It has Bear Claws if that helps.
Top speed of 50 + or - is a little disappointing but I knew it was geared down. Most of my riding is more technical than wide open anyway
If I figure out how to post a pic of airbox with Apple I’ll do so. Thanks folks.
