my girls want to ride

Recommended Posts

In 2005 I purchased 2 Polaris Phoenix quads for my girls. The rarely rode until recently when they were bitten by the riding bug. In 2006 a bulletin was put out by Polaris indicating the regulator rectifiers on this vehicle were defective. While my girls didn't ride enough to have the part break during the warranty period, I was never contacted by the dealer (Chaparral Motorsports) or Polaris. As a result, the rectifiers ran high voltage thru the stator and starter motor which are now broken. Chaparral told me this was a manufacturer issue and Polaris told me to go pack sand because there is no warranty left. My girls want to ride. There must be a workable solution rather than paying in excessive of $1200 to fix problems from a defective part. Can anyone give help, advice or suggestions to resolve this problem?

Thanks for responding, but they told me to go pack sand cause it wasn't their issue. They weren't very customer oriented.

      Hey All,
      Looking for some recommendations on an ATV for my Daughters-in-law to ride when they visit with my sons. We ride mostly woods trails. It needs to be fairly easy to ride, automatic is't necessary but shifting should be forgiving and it needs to be under $2000. I have a Banshee and a Polaris Sportsman 500HO now.
      One DIL is tiny, 5' and about 100lbs, the other is about 5'8" and 130lbs. I'm concerned that steering on the Sportsman may require too much upper body strength and the Banshee is definitely not a beginner's ride.
      I'm thinking about a Warrior (may be under powered) or a Honda 400EX but I'd love to hear what others might suggest?

      Went for a ride at Murdock Basin, which is on the South side of the Uinta Mountains. I hadn't been there in about 13 yrs & I had forgotten just how rocky this area is. I did ride some trails I hadn't ridden before & even found one short ATV trail.
      I had the "Check Engine - Transmission Signal Fault" message, but the bike never did go into limp mode, so I just kept riding & a little while later, the message disappeared, so all is good. I did check the wires when I got home & put some dielectric grease on the connection thou.
      Over all, it was a great day of rid'in, I hope you enjoy the video.
