Having this problem with mine too. Gonna go with warranty I guess. Cleaned it out once to see if it happened again and it did. Then I found this thread. Thanks for the heads up! They should re-imburse me an air filter for last time though!

I decided not to go with warranty.

Why wouldn't warranty cover the air filter if the breather probem caused it?

Got another chance to go for a ride again. So far so good. I used to get so much oil it would ruin the air filter.

That's awesome! I'm glad to hear this solution seems to have worked for someone besides me.

so this last wekend my quad seemed doggy with around 500 miles on it so i pulled the filter to clean it and guess what?? yep oil in the airbox. after hours of reading these forums i seen supercore's post and thought it cant be that simple can it?? so i already had it apart and went out to look at it and sure enough the breather was sticking up about an 1/8 of an inch so i pulled it lubed and and starting working back and fourth until it was flush. i have not taken the quad out yet but i should this weekend. i am very cofident this is in fact the problem every one is having (and im a mechanic ).. just shitty quality control at the plant... i will update as soon as i ride

They just change my motor for that problem, I'm doing the break-in...I had 800km when the change my motor...I hope that new motor and new oil pressure relief valve will solve that trouble.

You're breather doesn't sound like it was tightened down at all if it was raised that much.
It will be interesting what everyones results are.

I haven't had to deal with them yet but they sure seem to get a bad rap.

Does the issue stem from dealers that just don't know anything about the products they sell therefore giving Polaris a bad name when they can't repair them properly?

I work in IT and I think that it's funny that some of my customers swear that a Dell computer they had was the best thing ever simply because "it doesn't get viruses like my HP" even when both machines are identical software wise.

As I said, whats dealer do is what polaris told them to do. If polaris made a bad design motor, the dealer cant do fuck all to repair it. Mine they changed the motor, why? Because they just dont know where the problem is coming from...
