Hello everyone, I am a first time polaris owner. I've been faithful to another brand for 20 years, but I read all the great reviews about polaris and decided to go out and buy a sportsman 570. My first ride I noticed it was making a horrible noise as I was driving it. Turns out it was the shifter linkage rattling on the exhaust "easy fix" My second ride I noticed that my taillight was not working. It ended up being the bulb was installed wrong "easy fix" On my third ride I was driving up a slightly muddy incline, so I put it in "awd" 2 seconds later the front end starts making a horrible popping noise. I put it back in 2wd then drive for about 10 mins and try again with the same popping noise. When I get home I notice that the bike has multiple loose screws, nuts, bolts, hose clamps, and none of the zerk fittings were greased. "Easy fix, but irritated. The forth ride I was at the deer lease. The bike was on the trailer as it was raining the night before. I started the bike, put it in gear, gave it throttle and nothing happened. I drained the belt housing and it was full of water. "Easy fix, but I'm pissed" when I get the bike home I go over it with a fine tooth comb. I can ramble on about more minor things like the plastic pieces coming apart, and the high beam light not working, but oh well. This bike has 4 easy hours on it and 53 easy miles. It's brand new and I have had my tools out every time I've ridden it. I think I made a mistake by purchasing a polaris. Hopefully it is a good machine after the bugs are worked out. Oh, I guess the water is getting in the clutch housing from the 1/4 inch gap in the housing that I guess I will take it to the dealer to fix.
