I bought a 2018 450 sportsman with 5 miles on it from Schauer power sports. The reason Larry the salesman stated the prior owner returned it was that it didn't fit his trailer. Given what i know now i believe it was because it wouldn't start within the first 5 miles of use. Every eleven hours of use with 3 service calls that are not!! covered under warranty my plug has to be changed. Polaris and the first dealer all tell me the machine is fine I'm just not operating it properly. You have to use 87 octane gas. You can never shut the machine down until it has come to full operating temp and you can't let it idle. Ok to me that's ridiculous but after the first service i followed that to a tee except for the gas because I didn't learn about that until the second not starting service call at 20 hours of use. At 30 hours of use and not starting I took it to where I purchased it which is a 7 hr round trip. They told me well we have to look at it to help you and either way will make it right. So after explaining to them the plug issue I called them eagerly hoping they would find the magic solution. The service manager said yep we fixed it we changed the plug. Of course I was upset as i wanted a solution to why it fouls out every 10 hrs. I asked for a trade in at that point. They offered me 3500. With that math when i have 60 hrs on the machine it will be worth o dollars which I really can't argue with. So polaris and the service dealers feel its perfectly normal to change a plug every 10 hrs because they all continue to tell me I must not be following there 3 protocol rules of use even though I do. Anyone else having this issue with there 2018 450. I owned a 300 polaris 2 stoke for 11 years ran like a dream how far they have fallen!!
