    Had the same problem, started using the brake to stop instead of downshifting and rarely have that problem anymore. Mine never died though just low RPMs

    Red Rocker  John Price the Velcro pads were really a left over from Ventisists use of them on hard pan seats , non upholstered.

    Each seat now comes with a small strap woven through the back 3 '' down from the top and 24 '' down from the top . the straps are plenty long enough to reach around any seat and will have some left to be trimmed if need be and just clasp together . the quick snap buckles can be quickly unfastened and the pads stored behind the seat or elsewhere when not in use .


    One of the things I quickly learned on my first 500 mile leg down to Maggie in the damp mist rain on and off all day, was in cool or damp weather you won't want them as they let the cool damp breeze blow under your bottom , tucking them behind the seat plants yourself down onto the vinyl again warming you up. It's in the hot weather that these pads really shine , providing that desired cooling ventilation.

    Excellent, I have already placed an order

    Glad to hear your horn is still working. Generally, once the white wire strip starts coming out, it doesn't seem to want to fit back in and will end up twisting and breaking. At least that was my experience. I replaced my stock steering wheel and then tried a couple more, but after several no-problem swaps, I managed to screw up my clock spring. I'm finally getting motivated to either replacing the clock spring or adding a momentary contact switch independent of the clock spring.

    I actually was able to soldier the connection at the pin when I broke mine. I'm sure it won't last forever though, but It's got a couple thousand miles on it so far

    I've been to the closest two dealers to me, each is about an hour and 15 minutes one way. I won't recommend them for work to anyone. The dealer I bought mine from did most of the service work, and they screwed something up both times it was in there. Not to mention, no one gave me any advice on it when I bought it, including shutting the hood (it was loose at the windshield both sides on my first drive home). I had aftermarket lugs nuts completely trashed by using an impact, after I told them not to use an impact. The popped off my driver's arm panel to replace it from the star damage from the inside mount, and chipped a big hunk of paint off the deck at the rear. The first time I drove it after they returned it, the radio fell out. Told them I wanted a laser alignment, and they charged me $170 for that...... later I found out they didn't have the laser alignment. The second dealer I went to, took 1 hour and 45 minutes to check to see if the rubber plugs were in the swing arm (just a visual inspection, when the swing arm recall was done some of the swing arms didn't have the plugs in them). Of course, they took it around back, and put the hood up. Then didn't touch it for 1 hour, and 30 minutes. I could see it from the waiting area.

    That said, I have a dealership I trust and like now. Clinton County Motorsports or CCM. They checked my seat on a Saturday morning, ran the VIN, and cleared all recalls in minutes. They treated me like I was a valued customer. They are 2 hours one way, but in the event that I need something done at the dealership that I can't do myself, it will go there. The two that own it work there on the floor, one in the parts area, one in the sales area. I've had little work done there, only the recall but they seem very concerned and genuine. From what I saw, I'd give them a solid 8 and since there's always room for improvement, no one gets a 10.

    Neilson (I think is the name) in the Chicago area is supposed to be really good from what I hear from many that go there. Also there are a couple in Florida that are supposed to be top notch also.

    @Goat_Hogs Did warranty cover the paint issue on the driver's arm panel? I have some checking as well and am waiting for an answer from the dealer.

    Sunsports in FT. Myers FL. Wouldn't take mine there for anything. I went in for the clutch sensor 2 weeks after purchase. They tried to hand me an invoice before they would take it back in the shop. After a little discussion and a 25min wait the girl informed me that yes it is under warranty but they are really busy so could I come back in a few weeks. I then drove straight to Destination Powersports in Punta Gorda FL and they scheduled me for the next day and did my 500 mile service. It is currently in for a small laundry list of warranty work and it hasn't been so bad yet so we'll see. I hope I don't have to edit this when I get it back. Sunsport-0, Destination-7+

    I got them a couple of weeks ago with the SSV speakers. I love them both. However, I also got the headrest SSV pods w/speakers and they are even better than the arm rest speakers. Regardless, I left the front speakers as OEM and you cannot hear them. Before I had the arm and headrest pods/speakers, I had to turn the radio up to around the 9-10 level. Now that I have them, 4-5 is plenty high. Installation was a bear as I had the SSV works rep on the phone for over and hour when wiring the speakers, amp, and radio.


    I thing I would recommend that I got, was to get an amp for the arm speakers. The SSV amp is good and priced good.

    Miller Time do you have any panel vibrations from the lower frequencies?

    LOL that was my brother, he's a mechanic on heavy equipment so I assume he is used to it. I am not, and I have to tell you my back and ribs are killing me!

    I used a Clarion amp, and you are correct the installation was a bear

    I just installed them, I need to go back and add some rubber edge trim and possibly some weather stripping as I am getting some vibrations with certain low end frequencies. Other than that they really fill out the sound in the cockpit!


    Swapped out windshields last night. I absolutely loved the madstad 9" that I got a few years back...but I was ready for a change. Went with the new Klockwerks Flare windshield...and as soon as this stupid cold front gets out of Colorado I will have a better feel for what I bought.

    I really like this, please post the results

    Just to be clear - He never actually said you would gain horse power - it seemed more as if he were saying the response and snappiness would be similar. He also said it helped a great deal with boosted applications as well


    As a side note we have at least two vendors here selling the Pedal Max, Slingshot only and All Things Slingshot - - If people have questions about this you can always go to the vendors page and ask them - hopefully they would have some personal experience to share

    I have the Pedal Max installed and love the response and performance. There is no more lag or hesitation. I keep it set at 50%

    Tried pushing down to relieve the pressure and it still won't unlatch. The cables are still intact. I'm thinking the CAT is causing pressure to the hood and keeping that side from releasing. Not sure if I can reach under by the tire and pull the cable or not. Also thank you for all your help. This forum is amazing!

    My drivers side hood latches won't disengage. I recently had a cold air intake installed and now a few weeks later the hood won't unlatch on that side. I really don't want to drive it to the dealer. Any ideas are welcome. Funny that before the CAT install that side wouldn't latch all the time.
