You were able to notice the power gains from a filter and gse exhaust? Was the exhaust a slip on or header back?

I'm right under 800 miles at this point. I'm wondering if I can get a frame replaced under extended warranty
Soooo you beat the ever loving shit out of an ATV not designed to be jumped or launched or drown in “15’ of water” and you’re looking to Polaris to replace your frame...? Hope they don’t read your posts lol.

It was 100% noticable. Slip on and high flow filter

I ride it like a quad. I don't do anything it isn't capable of doing. Obviously I didn't sink it purposely and that wouldn't affect the frame. It's out of factory warranty. I wouldn't expect Polaris to warranty it, they're smarter than that.

I’d be willing to bet those two upgrades would have netted between 2-3hp. Your butt dyno must be really good for that strong of a response.

“Capable” is different than “designed for”.
You can take a corvette on an MX track and it’d be capable of catching air, but def not what it’s designed for. Little extreme, but most examples are.
In any event I’m glad there are those out there who push the limits when they ride.
Happy trails.

2 to 3hp on something that makes 80 is almost a 5% increase. Thanks for all your helpful comments
