Attention Vendors. Please email robert@rabtech.com any instruction manuals you may have for your products. They will be added to the FILEBASE tab for members to access.


    Perhaps Ruptured Duck or airoutlaw can assist with a more eloquent answer... but here goes:


    No you do not have cracked fenders as viewed in your pictures. It is also pictured on our "ejector side" passenger fender.... ejector side of molded plastics is most often from the side not in clear view, or in a prominant view by customer or others... it also is where the date code, part number is found and identifies as to what plastic material it is made of. Molded automotive parts are given a definition to each surface... A - being most visible surface, then B, C, and finally D - being the most hidden.. for example your skid plate underneath your car would be a "D surface" while the interior dash would be an "A surface".

    The ejector side of the slingshot hood is most likely a B surface. It is seen, but only when the customer opens it.

    Ejector side of molds means there are several moving steel parts. Because it has paint on these "seams" its not from hanging on the paint racks during paint line. And because these "seams" are not visible to the "A surface " or topside of the hood - one can assume these are ejector plate markings. Which is not a defect... crack... it is the quite normal for large plastic pieces being assisted in removal from the mold in the injection mold process.

    Due to my vacation time limitations - if/when ivor relinquishes SSR events completely... we will most likely attend other events or take the trips steve and I have discussed taking in the slingshot for years and just havent.

    What I find disturbing since Monopoly Guy (MG) took over these events is the lack of competition from vendors. Now only certain vendors are approved by MG. Ie. "no LED vendors will be allowed to attend and setup but company X"


    Not to mention the drama/treatment MG created on FB and at the past Texas event surrounding the Veteran Owned Slinshot group.


    I personally will attend these events but will no longer register for them. I'll show up and ride, but they isn't getting my money.

    This is exactly what I have issue with... Slingmods being shut out, and the events monopolized to pad the pocket of one man. We did not make any purchase from under the monopoly tent. And we looked at the merchandise in others tents and waited to return home to make purchases just so all the money went to the sole vendor... and none went to the monopoly tent. And slingmods has always - from the start had quality products with phenomenal customer service.

    We did get the hood painting done at Maggie valley by Sara.... hard to purchase that online...

    I enjoy the events ivor coordinates very much. No complaints here against any part or portion...


    I do have some reservations about attending SSR events when ivor is no longer the coordinator....


    Ivor is a great event director. And yes steve and i heard a gentleman in line in front of us just hammering Ivor about fees and such.... to which he heard :

    The main gate worked as both an entrance and an exit....


    We had a good time... at all 4 events... we have no problem with what we paid for each of the experiences.


    I'm not sure I would have the same experience with another coordinator...


    Some ppl are just natural born "ppl persons" and some ppl are just natural born "salesmen wearing a smile".

    So! Now Polaris has released quite a few new toys....

    Just a tad bit longer for the one we ALL are chomping at the bit to see released....


    Btw... if I had to buy a work horse -

    I'd go with the Ranger 1000.

    If I wanted to buy a TOY...

    Other than the Slingshot... I'd get me a High Lifter....

    Those things are built for playing in high water, and deep mud... and I've never wanted to go mudding, or 4 wheeling in my life.... but after seeing these... yeah, I'd like to give her a whirl in one of those..

    The Captain & I took a trip to Mount Magazine today and traveled down the Pig Trail (Arkansas hwy 23) - a favorite twisty route for folks who visit here.

    There is a major repaving project going on over most of the length of the Pig Trail from Brashear to Ozark, about 25 miles of roadway. Sadly, the entire length isn't being repaved, but about 60% is getting completely resurfaced. The work seems excellent and finished sections are smooth as the proverbial baby's bottom. The unretouched sections are generally in superior shape, and it looks as though the job should be complete before the Eureka Springs gathering in September.

    The bad news is that we drove over a lot of oiled & tarry gravel today and we were showered with pebbles from cars as much as 50 yards ahead of us. X( I can definitively say that stock fenders SUCK, and tomorrow I have to clean gravel bits and tar off Ruby - and get tar spots out of the Captain's blouse. (Methanol... lots of methanol and baking soda!)

    Been there! Beautiful Landscape and view... just don't get out and walk on the rocks and among the tumbleweeds!!!


    I THOUGHT ... I had experienced chiggers before.... until Oklahoma...

    I don't think that is necessarily true... If you drive a 57 Chevy it has no airbags and seatbelts and it is still legal on the road. It usually only applies forward, and not back... but as you said.... government who knows.

    Thank you for addressing that... its referred to as a "Grandfather Clause"....


    another example... fully automatic weapons with a "purchased before date" are possessed legally..


    if Slingshots were ever required to meet higher standards... there would be an "effective date" and those requirements would then fall on Polaris as the manufacturer...

    The one thing I learned and I'm sure Trump heard, was when Mueller said they could indict Trump once he is out of office.

    They said that about Obama, Clinton, Roy Moore, Jeff Sessions, Clinton Secretary / Aid with the funny last name I can't remember, and her husband named Mr. Weiner....



    What ?


    Who could possibly forget a name like that??



    The opposition always claims that they will have the other indicted, investigated, charged, impeached, so on, and so on, and...... its like watching the movie Jackass over and over and over... the first time was shocking! Disgusting! But now you've seen it so many times your no longer wondering who gets their grapes smashed again....



    Just to note; I found it rather convenient - Mueller refused to answer the Republicans questions... but I only watched about 25 minutes of it... before I figured out the story plot and main characters...




    I would've recorded it if Trey Gowdy was still on the committee.... Jim Jordan nailed Mueller... "I can't answer that"... "Why Can't you answer that? Its on page 193!" Jim Jordan


    if it was a republican question... Mueller couldn't give an answer... same thing happened with Clinton when she testified in the Benghazi investigation.


    This show is a rerun...

    Hey, when I have my phone connected and my headset connected to the Ride Command system (2019 SLR) everything works fine but I cannot control the volume from the Ride Command unit. To adjust volume I must turn the dial on the the Sena headset. Am I doing something wrong or is this just how it works? On my 2018 Spyder same type of setup, I can control everything from the bike and never have to take my hands off the bars to change volume.... Just curious...

    Ride Command


    I'm thinking bluetooth functions are limited without the Polaris Bluetooth Helmet... this manual is online, marked as a draft, but after doing some reading here and there, That may possibly be the issue..
