      Curious-- took my bike in for check on squeaky front forks, throttle surge, false N's between 1/2 and 5/6 gears, rear suspension kicking me a foot into the air over the bump etc. Got a bill for 2 and 1/2 hours of labor from the dealership. I work at that said dealership-- no ASK POLARIS ticket was ever opened to see if this would be covered under warranty, but I still got the bill.

      Troop , how much wind deflection does the dirty bird fairing make. It is pricey I wonder how it compares to my fly screen. It diffently looks better ! Thanks

        Having had a fly screen on a prior bike, I can safely say the fly screen does do a bit better job of wind deflection. The DBC does direct a pretty good bit of wind to my mid torso. It is a sportier look but not an effective wind screen for practical use.

        I like that DB headlight faring.. is there any wind protection..? What's that gauge you got stuck to the frame? Air temp? I bought the same exact mirrors, saw 'em on Meg's bike first... sorry lol

        I lowered my bars so that the switch box is 1.25 in. above the tank when steering is in
        full turn... lock to lock. About 2 in. down. I'm 5' 10" ... in the morning. Seat and pegs are in natural position. Haven't rode for more than 2 hrs. yet, but I think I like it.
        Are those driving lights? or another set of blinkers on the front fork? Those pipes look perfect for the matte black! Thanks again!!

      Troop-- what color xarcs are you using for the front turns-- yellow right? And when you buy the rear, are you going to do the dual color, red and yellow or just yellow for turns?

      Troop-- did your paint match up perfectly on the front fairing? Got my paint back yesterday and it ended up looking like primer… did your paint guys get it right the first try?
