I would just like to say hello to everyone and thank you for letting me be a member of SF group.Now that the formalitys are out of the way Ill tell my story. On January 18th of this year i purchased a new Polaris Trail RMK.My 1989 Yamaha XLV found it's self a new owner, so off to my Polaris dealership i went.It was love at first sight,there it was in my garage,my first new sled.I registerd the next day and out across the lake i went.Soon i was at the dealership buying all kinds of colored accessories and other goodies to personalize my new sled.At about 285 mile,s I brought the sled to my local dealer for its first maintnance.All checked out good with the exception of the skid plate accessory.I needed to cut vent holes in the frount of it so that the muffler could stay cool.So I did. The weekend came and my freinds all wanted to go Trail riding on the powerlines to the railroad beds and so forth.At about 20 miles into my trip of rough riding over bumpy terrain i began to notice my sled starting to make alot of noise coming from underneath.I stopped on the trail several time's to check it out but couldn't find anything wrong. It seemed to me as though the noise was getting worse so i ended my day early and back to my garage i went. Curious as to what was making so much noise i checked the engine, but it was fine.So i looked under the sled,tipping it on its side,i noticed scratches along the tunnel.So i tipped it back down and removed the seat and gas tank to get a better view of the damage.There it was,5 scrathes and 1 tear right through the bottom of the tunnel about 5 inches long directly under the gas tank. It seem's that the dealer installed tunnel protectors were not installed correctly and the dealer installed studs ripped a hole through the tunnel under the gas tank.A little upset i was.It was off to the dealership i went.I explained what had happend and left the sled with them for repairs.After 5 day's i went back to the dealership to pick up my sled.They told me they had made the needed repairs to the snowmobile, and it would be good to ride again.I brought the sled home only to find out that the dealer did nothing except install peices of tunnel protecter to the area under the tunnel were there was none before.There was still a hole under my gas tank through the tunnel. Furrious I brought the snowmobile to another dealership,closer to home,not the one i purchased the sled from.They told me the sled was unsafe to ride and should be repaired correctly with a new tunnel and tunnel protectors of the correct length.Well here i sit not out snowmobiling having fun,but venting my $1600 problem. I have been a vistor to this site on many an occasion, just to see what others have to say about there snomobiling experiences. Ill keep all of you up to date on the outcome of this tragedy. Thanks for listening.
