I brought the Dragon in for a check-up today, just to let the dealer go over it and see if they could find any warranty related items, and they did find something. A broken primary spring. It wasn't doing anything super strange, though I did notice that the power seemed a little soft on Sunday (not enough to make me think anything was wrong, just seemed to be not pulling as hard on the top end as usual) and it was a little harder on gas then it usually is, as I ran the tank dry in 83.4 miles on Sunday. I routinely run 85 miles and I've never run out before. I guess that should've been a clue.

Oh well, considering the miles I've put on it in the last 6 weeks I can't complain about this. The sled just rocks, runs like a top all the time, does absolutely everything I ask it to do, including everything from railing around corners, pounding through the moguls, surfing the deep stuff, running water, slush, launching off of everything, including beaver damns onto open water. It's just un-fricken-believable.

A few plans for the future that I may or may not get around to...making a luggage rack to carry a gas can, a pipe and can and maybe...maybe, a 136" kit. I wouldn't mind a bit more hook up, but I'd hate to ruin the handling. I'd love to hear from anyone else who's done a conversion on an IQ and hear what they think.

NB, you mentioned a while back about a reprogram that was supposed to help your mpg, is the dealer doing this?

Still waiting to hear from Polaris, though now the word is that it has to do with the running temperature. The sleds always seem to run at about 110-115F (unless you're driving super slow and not throwing snow) and these cool operating temps supposedly keep the enrichening mode kicking in, meaning higher fuel consumption. No word on when the fix is coming.

Since I have got my sled I have always wondered if the low running temp was causing warm up enrichment all of the time, and leading to the bad gas milage.

If Polaris does not come out with a fix then we should try the radiator delet kit from slp. My guess is that would keep us running a little warmer, maybe in the 140-150 range.

Do you happen to know where someone could find literature on the computer program on this sled? I would love to find exactly what this sled is running for warm up enrichment and was temps it is at.
