    We just purchased a new 2019 Honda Ridgeline and while on the computer recently I thought that I would just check up on the history of what recalls our Ridgeline has had, and if they have been addressed. After extensive searching what I have found is that I can find if there are any outstanding recalls that have not been addressed, but what I was really looking for was a comprehensive listing of all the recalls that have applied to our Ridgeline and their status. Apparently there is no such listing available online and I need to go to the dealer to get a printout.


    So, compliments to Polaris for providing us with this easy and immediate access to this information.

    Please people, I am not here to argue, I was just trying to help by sharing with the OP that our experience has shown us that when properly serviced the brakes have been doing their duty as required with absurdness without concern or complaint, where adding a brace would be an unnecessary expense.


    Bill

    Airoutlaw, in my opinion, if it is a chronic occurrence of having to press on the brake pedal hard enough to cause extensive flex under normal braking, then I would recommend getting the brake system serviced, we are having no braking issues with our SlingShot sans brace. The brakes on our SlingShot are compatible with our other vehicles with manual brakes.


    Bill

    Thanks everybody, got it done thanks to the advice. Now going to install the DDM master cylinder brake stop so the brakes don’t feel so spongy.

    Have you ever had the secondary brake bleed done by the dealer, if the brakes have been serviced properly there shouldn't be any need for installing an extra brace?

    When I got the SS the wife said she was going to get lessons to learn how to drive a stick because I told her she was going to LEARN on this SS. I then saw the article on Polaris teaching riders to drive stick for free for the month. I was sitting next to her when I saw it........ I was about to say something and then I hesitated. I told myself that if I tell her about this, I would then realize the exact moment when I made the decision to have my wheels get curb rashed, make-up all over the interior, trash in the SS, paint scrapes, dings, etc. I decided to keep the information to myself. I will more than likely tell her about it, so I can have her help drive on longer trips, but I just hate the way she drives and she never stays focused which scares the pants off of me. She drives sooooo cautious that she will cause a accident from other motorist trying to get around her. I have no issues driving long distances, so I may just keep this info to myself.

    How sad that you think of your wife so, :( I trust Justina more than I would trust most any guy, from operating a bicycle, a farm tractor, to an 18-wheeler! In fact, it was Justina that rode our SlingShot off of the showroom floor! :thumbsup:

    (Going to have to eat a lil more crow on this one! :|)

    Image result for polaris slingshot belt + Image result for liquid wrench dry lube = A practically silent rear drive!

    Wind, tire and traffic noise were much louder then the rear drive after applying this dry lube.

    If I understand correctly, what this does is to quicken the throttle movement, am I correct?

    That is my understanding as well.



    So, then cannot a driver get the same sensation without spending the extra money by just mashing down harder on the accelerator?


    Bill

    Entry based just to try if earplugs will work for you the cheap foam ones should work, but I really like Kyle D's response!


    Bill

    Just a lil discovery that we have made where when wearing our full faced helmets wind/road noise have automatically been muffled and we have had the intercom to converse or listen to the radio. Recently we have been experimenting with wearing half helmets, but this has introduced the issue of wind/road noise which has made conversation and listening to the radio with just the speakers difficult. Now this may sound counter intuitive to those not already aware of this, but we have started wearing ear plugs for the wind/road noise and wallah, by diminishing all of that background noise we have found that conversations are now easier and the radio is clearer at even highway speed.

    I was told last year at SSITR's that my battery was having issues. Still haven't replaced it but with the new rear exhaust I am thinking of going to the newer lighter Polaris battery. This will move it another few inches away from the heat.

    Just a thought that maybe you might want to reacquaint yourself with some of the issues that others seem to have experienced with the smaller battery over the full sized ones?


    Bill

    For the first time I happened to run into a rain squall yesterday wearing my (relatively) new half-helmet and quickly found myself missing the protection of my full-faced modular.................


    Bill

    Oregon's autocycle regulations state no endorsement required but a helmet still is.


    Ultimately, there is a sure fire way too assure that you will never get pulled over due to the lack of donning a helmet.....................:whistling:
