I have not had that problem, but I think that it is odd that you have the same problem with both machines. That makes me think that your problem may be caused by similar riding or storage conditions. I would check all electrical connections on both machines. I think it is very possible that you will find corroded connections and grounds on both bikes. A poor ground can be bad for the lifespan of a generator.

Yeah, it is odd that both machines would have the same issue. I know that there are posts out there about Polaris snowmobile stator problems. You should see if there is a TSB on thsi issue from the dealer.

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ?

      Well, it overheated then started blowing white smoke!!
      I have it torn down & the cylinder appears to be warped. Going to have the head checked out next but in the meanwhile... Does anyone have the torque sequence/specs for the head bolts??

      Just purchased a 450 EPS and I'm wondering about accessories. What are some good websites for aftermarket accessories? Looking for front and rear brush guards and LED lights.
