    I like this forum also but read the other one as well. I had no trouble navigating the other when it changed formats. It does have a handy button for new posts since last visit so I don't keep rereading threads. I think a problem for all of us is that attendance has fallen off. Wondering if that is symptomatic of falling sales? And a decrease of vendors?


    Having been a former Can Am Spyder owner, I read that forum as well. It still seems very active which I believe has to do with BRP introducing new varieties of trikes. My buddy still rides his so we go to rallies for both.

    I haven't seen you on Trike-Talk in a while...?

    Just got my notice in the mail today, and since I haven't been keeping up with stuff- this was the first I had heard about the recall...... Called the only dealer in the area, got on the list, for when parts get off back order. Per dealer- eta from mother-ship Dec. 4. Since notice did not say stop-ride......I will continue to ride. Was out today- weather here is wonderful, and rain will probably start in another month, so I will ride as long as I can.

    As far as possible loss of lights- already been there and done that at 4 AM on the freeway going 80 mph with slingshot #1. Same time, had temporary total loss of power- in short everything you normally lose when the engine ceases to run. Even that was not CATASTROPHE Bigdog

    Regarding the "stop-sale"- Polaris would not knowingly releasing a new product with a known potential safety problem recall. If I recall correctly- all recalls have resulted in dealer NOT delivering new vehicle until it was up to snuff.

    This recall covers about 4 years of vehicles, if I am reading it correctly. For all the vehicles sold- I am figuring not that many have had issues with the fuse block. I've got a 2016 1/2 SL. Hasn't melted so far, and personally- I am comfortable in continuing to ride until parts come in

    SOP.......All the unsold Slingshots on the dealers floor will get the recall parts first.....The sold Slingshots will have to wait ...

    Till the dealer gets enough parts......All companies do it that way so as not to lose sales..

    Just recently i was offered 16k for my 18 Sl with the slingshade.. with just under 10k miles, But that was for a trade on a new 2020 $38k Tri-Glide... Not interested in selling, I was just kicking tires..

    Oh so you can remove the panels from the Slingshade on either side...?

    Yes you can, I have the Slingshade also.....But once you do remove them there is no place to store them on board...

    I took them off once this summer , The Sun would just beat down on me, I put them back on..Also like today i road 25 miles in the rain and stayed relatively dry......

    The only draw back with the slingshade is that [For me away way ] the roof is too low and if stoped under a over head traffic light i can not see it....So i learned the stop a few feet short of the light..

    I put onthe Slingmods Stealth 2.0 rear fender with the light bar and airfoil over a year ago, I Ride in a kinds of weather , Dirt roads also....And the most i ever had to do to keep the rear tub clean is to hose it off, I never had to even bend down to scrub it......Also it fills in the naked /empty look of the rear end...:thumbsup:...

    I used a phillips head screwdriver....Just cut off the head [blunt-it] ........Don't forget to remove the set pin [Allen] all the way and don't over tighten the pin you don't want to damage the rubber tip....

    For the price of the JIR's they should have included a spanner ...

    When i called Slingmods about that they said its not included ,And that they Slingmods doesn't even sell them..X(...

    A while ago i was at an intersection making a left turn...

    It was raining heavy , As i was waiting for a row of oncoming cars to pass, Some nimrod in the pack didn't have any lights on...I almost pulled in front of him thinking there was a big gap in the the line of cars he was almost invisible ....

    In Jersey the law is ; Wipers on' Lights on!...And for good reason..
