  • Spent last weekend over at Erica's house having lights installed by David M Harich AKA "Joker" and Erica Starling. This lights are awesome, so many different combinations available. The APP which control the lights come with unlimited possibilities, 20 different preset modes which you can change, 6 DIY modes for you to design your way and more coming. Take a look


    We are so excited to see Professional installs coming out by the likes of ericastar76 She has been so instrumental in ensuring Joker Slingshot gets his first customer installations perfected, Can't say enough good things about this woman, Thank you very much Erica.

  • SlingLow I would really like to know what you find out about the switch over ride when you talk with Guard Dawg rep. I just installed and haven’t tried this process yet, but I was told by GD just the other day that it had this back up ability and I could change the code to what I wanted using a sequence of numbers 1-9.


    :SUNSETSS:

    I called DGD yesterday and my 1st comment is that their customer service is first rate. I had a live rep on the phone quickly, just like the last time I called. Again, he was knowledgeable and had concise answers. Unfortunately they had no help for me. The code should work as described in the manual and it doesn't. So, I probably changed it and made no note. The problem is, I don't remember changing it and don't have a 'go to' two digit code that I like to use. So my options are 1) no emergency override. 2) Try all 90 codes until I find the one that works (zero is not used). The issue with this is that there is a lockout after 3 tries to prevent thieves from entering codes until it starts. Once locked out, you must wait 5 minutes before trying again. 3) Send the unit back to DGD for a reset which entails a $49 charge.


    I will likely start trying 3 codes at a time until I figure out what works or that it does not work, at which time I would take it up with DGD. If I don't have it solved by winter, I'll pull it and send it in for a factory reset.


    BTW, changing the code requires entering the active code first so I can't do that until I get it figured out.

    Remember folks - this isn't a rehearsal, it's The Show!8)

    Thanks SlingLow for the update. I believe I might go out and try this process. I know that the code that came with mine has not been changed by me anyway. I just installed the unit on Wednesday. I will let you know the results.

  • As every owner knows, the stock headlights on the SS are horrible. Many choose to add the Canadian kit to add two more bulbs and other choose to replace the bulbs with LED, or both.


    I went with the latter, I drive a lot of back woods at night returning from trips back home and we have problems with deer, cattle and pigs being on the roads, plus other critters like raccoons, possum and armadillo.


    The 2017 and higher aren't as easy to add the Canadian kit, since you need new shrouds. I went with the TricLED kit from Slingmods since it seemed to have better reviews. Install is easy, but I'm not a fan of the mount for the new light, only 1 bolt, no adjustment if you need to and it seems to shake a lot, since it only has 1 bolt. there is at least one more bolt mount on the SS frame on my 2019, they could have engineered the bracket to use it. Just my opinion, I'm sure there was a reason.


    For the bulbs, I replaced with LiteYourSlingz LEDs that have a lifetime warranty. They are great lights and a good cost I think. My only complaint is that they don't come with instructions. The two center ones are easy, plug and play similar to how a car's bulbs swap. The outside ones are odd, due to how Polaris wired them. For these, you can follow any install guide on how to remove the old bulbs, but then you need to cut out a hole in the rear of the rubber boot, about a dime sized hole, and pull the LED driver box out through it, leaving the wiring connections inside. The Blue wire on these LED's are the power, so it goes to the yellow Polaris wire, and the white is ground. Kyle was great trading emails and talking me over the phone on how to connect them, awesome customer service.

    Next up was ZZP's hood hinge kit. Easy install (as long as you pay attention to which side is which, ask me how I know :). Alignment of it needs to be done before you put the hood back on, simply close it with the bottom mount bolts loose to make sure the hood latches and is aligned.


    Support is awesome with Kyle, answering all of my questions. He even offered to help me over the weekend with a minor issue I'm running into, but I'm in no rush, may just meet him up at MV and get some hands on training.

    I think I'm going to follow along with you on lights & hinges. Your description of evening rides with wildlife matches up pretty well with our environment here in the Ozarks. I'm adding a light bar, but I need better light for every day use as well. Interested in how you find the experience after you get 'em installed and running.

    The smarter you get, the funnier I am.

  • I only took a short ride with the new lights, should get some time in tomorrow evening with them and certainly will give feedback.


    I initially thought about a light bar, but my concern is the legality of it here, and forgetting to turn them off if I meet someone.


    I also did the cross wire (forgot to mention it), to keep the canadian lights on all the time, not just high beams. Slingmods has instructions on wiring that (really easy). You can't do it if you don't have LED bulbs, will pull too much amperage I've read.

  • doesnt someone sell a led light bar that mounts on the center of the splitter? I know I saw it some place and I recall thinking it would be a great addition for those who want more light


    edit - it was similar to this, but I thought it was a vendor not an ebay thing
