Polaris had a few issues with the Classic FST when it hit the snow in December. A few FSTs made it into the hands of consumers with a starter problem.
Almost all Polaris turbos had the remedy applied before arriving at the selling dealer prior to delivery and it was evidenced on only a handful of units in the field built and delivered early.
After this issue was pretty much under control, a reverse gear problem surfaced requiring the sleds electro-mechanical chain case system to be disconnected and temporarily locked in forward only. This work was performed by dealers. Owners who neglected to have this service performed ultimately ended up walking home – not good.
The fix is coming from Polaris and the reverse system will be restored to 100% reliability.
