    Had to get my brake light issue checked at the dealer- before the 2 year warranty ends. Had them give thumbs up on the seats, so I could quit getting silly letters and emails from the Mothership. Brake fluid level sensors are now on order. Getting used to annoying little red light on the on the dash..... Ride On!

    @Tripod
    Larry- there are no words to describe.......... You have enriched all of our lives, (yes, even with your sometimes twisted humor.) I hope you stay in touch every so often when you catch up with life and have some time. We never had time to properly say goodbye and God speed.

    If @Tripod is serious about deserting us- he posted on the correctly named thread.
    If true- our loss. Who the hell will remember some obscure thread or bolt size, or engine code discussion- from this forum or TDS?
    You will be SORELY missed my friend.

    We show four associated recalls for ours , T18-01-A to inspect and test the frames, T18-01- B to replace the Driver's seat frame, T18-01-C to replace the Passenger seat frame, and T18-01-D to replace both the driver and passenger seat frames............

    me, too.......

    @MWSlingshot
    Once you get ahold of a "specialist', make sure you have a no-later-than day they will call you back with an update. Also- tell them you want a emil summarizing what is going to happen. Make sure you reply in writing (email), "per our conversation on 3/--/18, Polaris has committed to ........." You want that paper trail. They record every conversation on their end, and you certainly want a record on your end.
    Persistence on your end is critical- they are notorious for letting deadlines slip........

    Well, it’s been a week in the shop and nothing had improved. The word from Polaris is keep looking. No parts have been replaced as of today and the consensus of the dealer is ECM and throttle body both need to be replaced. Polaris won’t approve it and send the parts.

    You already have a case number with Polaris- your dealer instigated that the moment they called Polaris with the issue, requesting assistance on diagnosis. If you want to call Polaris, the first thing you need to do is get the case number from your dealer. That way, you can get past the receptionist at Polaris, speak with a "specialist". (I promise, I am using that word in quotations for a reason.......) After you get off the phone with the "specialist" he/she will call your dealer and most likely be extremely ugly-yelling about what an irate nasty customer call he received, and why the hell the dealer had not corrected the problem....... (I speak from past experience.) In my humble opinion, the most prudent way to approach the situation is to be honest with the dealer. After you get the case number- explain to them that you are going to call Polaris, to see if you can help expedite a solution. Make sure the dealer understands that this is no reflection on them. In my particular case-in the beginning, the first "specialist" I had was extremely rude and ugly, both to the dealership owner and the service manager. Luckily, they knew I was calling Polaris, and had every intention of being polite. Another tidbit- I went through several incompetent "specialists", until I found the one willing to be cooperative.
    I know that you do not want to hear this, but one week is truly nothing- in all honesty, it will be, at minimum, 30 days before you can start demanding Polaris take immediate action on this issue.

    @edwardaneal
    Would you be kind enough to share name, & number of with another Californian who is getting shafted by Insurance. Mine is written 100/300, driving just 1000 miles a year. Clean record. That was the only way they could write it and keep it under $1000 per year, and it is just barely under.........
    (This is my second SS- since about june or july, 2015- combined mileage of over 38,000 miles.) thanks!

    Unfortunately no, I’ve been so busy at work I haven’t had a chance to do any work on the Sling . I have to cover for someone else on Saturday so my only day this week will be Sunday. I’ll be up bright and early and start lookin for any plugs with moisture in them and checking my battery ground. Then I’ll move on to the throttle position sensor and the wires going to them. I did notice that my stock POS radio was acting up on the Saturday before this happened and my Bluetooth was still trying to connect to the Slingshot radio a couple of day later. I don’t know if that has anything to do with my problems.

    After you mess with the battery cables- if that does not solve the issue- I would go to the little fuse box, and remove the fuse for the radio. That is a 2 second trouble shoot. It will kill all power to radio & back up camera- but if you have a bad radio or camera, it will screw up the electrical system. My first ss, which was bought back, allegedly had this issue---- somewhere in the wiring, and just replacing the radio did not fix the problem. (I had different codes, but the thing would redline on all gages, on a regular basis, and lose power.) Final straw was a freeway incident @ 4:30 in the morning- total power loss.

    Yes - if you can believe it or not Feinstein is not far enough to the left !

    But in Cali- the primary 2 top winners for each district go onto the Nov. ballot. Doesn't matter if they are Dem., Repub., Independent, or Alien........ I believe that this was passed by an all Dem. State Legislature, and signed by a Dem Governor....... There are so many Dem.'s running- we might just end up with a Republican! Wouldn't that just fry their butts?

    Something not being talked about is the proposal only raises semi-automatic long guns to age 21 ... shot guns, pump, lever, or bolt action remain 18 ... so not eliminating all options ......

    That would eliminate my very first gun, which I still have- my wonderful little Armalite AR 7- 2.5 #, breaks down and stores in the stock- great little rear sight. Indispensable for back-packing, camping in the great outdoors......
    I love this weapon!

    @KayTwo I would say damn ballsy- Just imagining all the flack she took from helicopter parents, soccer Moms, etc. Pisses me off- overtime I see a little one mis-behaving at a store, and all the Mom does is hand the kid a smart phone, or buys them another toy- They are as obtuse as to what is going on in their kids lives as the Mother who truly neglects her kids.
    My son's school just finished their parent teacher conferences. There is not a teacher who has less than 150 kids, (5-6 classes per day X 30+ kids.) The teachers tallied how many parents cared enough to show- average number was <10. No wonder these kids are screwed up!

    The following is a FB post written by an Eustis, Fl. middle school teacher- voted teacher of the year at her school. Pretty well sums up a lot of the "human intervention". Sorry it is long- for some reason the link didn't work.

    Okay, I’ll be the bad guy and say what no one else is brave enough to say, but wants to say. I’ll take all the criticism and attacks from everyone because you know what? I’m a TEACHER. I live this life daily. And I wouldn’t do anything else! But I also know daily I could end up in an active shooter situation.
    Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parental support when the schools are trying to control horrible behavior at school (oh no! Not MY KID. What did YOU do to cause my kid to react that way?), lack of moral values, and yes, I’ll say it-violent video games that take away all sensitivity to ANY compassion for others’ lives, as well as reality TV that makes it commonplace for people to constantly scream up in each others’ faces and not value any other person but themselves, we will have a gun problem in school. Our kids don’t understand the permanency of death anymore!!!
    I grew up with guns. Everyone knows that. But you know what? My parents NEVER supported any bad behavior from me. I was terrified of doing something bad at school, as I would have not had a life until I corrected the problem and straightened my ass out. My parents invaded my life. They knew where I was ALL the time. They made me have a curfew. They made me wake them up when I got home. They made me respect their rules. They had full control of their house, and at any time could and would go through every inch of my bedroom, backpack, pockets, anything! Parents: it’s time to STEP UP! Be the parent that actually gives a crap! Be the annoying mom that pries and knows what your kid is doing. STOP being their friend. They have enough “friends” at school. Be their parent. Being the “cool mom” means not a damn thing when either your kid is dead or your kid kills other people because they were allowed to have their space and privacy in YOUR HOME. I’ll say it again. My home was filled with guns growing up. For God’s sake, my daddy was an 82nd Airborne Ranger who lost half his face serving our country. But you know what? I never dreamed of shooting anyone with his guns. I never dreamed of taking one! I was taught respect for human life, compassion, rules, common decency, and most of all, I was taught that until I moved out, my life and bedroom wasn’t mine...it was theirs. And they were going to know what was happening because they loved me and wanted the best for me.
    There. Say that I’m a horrible person. I didn’t bring up gun control, and I will refuse to debate it with anyone. This post wasn’t about gun control. This was me, loving the crap out of people and wanting the best for them. This was about my school babies and knowing that God created each one for greatness, and just wanting them to reach their futures. It’s about 20 years ago this year I started my teaching career. Violence was not this bad 20 years ago. Lack of compassion wasn’t this bad 20 years ago. And God knows 20 years ago that I wasn’t afraid daily to call a parent because I KNEW that 9 out of 10 would cuss me out, tell me to go to Hell, call the news on me, call the school board on me, or post all over FaceBook about me because I called to let them know what their child chose to do at school...because they are a NORMAL kid!!!!!
    Those 17 lives mattered. When are we going to take our own responsibility seriously?"
