polaris 800 engine problems
i have 4 2010 polaris 800's all with less than 500 miles on them. 2 have seized pistons, one was a failure of both pistons, the other one had only one go down and a third one with constant overhead problems.
the first seize was after a 5 mile ride, shut down for an hour, then start back up, ride a mile in soft snow about 4 feet deep at about 30 mph. the second sled was going down hill on a trail when the piston went, both lean seized. the third sled can overheat at weird times like going downhill with a 100 lb rider (why not uphill? - tho it can do that as well) talk about gunshy and gutshot... just waiting for another seize. the dealer says put scratchers on, which i have... that doesnt really instill confidence. these sleds should be able to motor down any trail under normal circumstances and not blow to pieces... whats going on? we run premium fuel, put polaris fuel conditioner in it, run pure polaris premium oil and no one is fat. these sleds arent being pushed at all.
i have 2 polaris 600s that are 4 years old and they are bombproof.
