What to do


Recommended Posts

My son bought a used ATV scambler and has had shifting problems since he bought it. He took it back to the dealer and they said it was the clutch. They changed it for him at a price of 450. The problem never went away so he took it back again. This time they found bits in the oil. Bottom line they are rebuilding the engine. My son then got deployed to the desert for the second time. When I asked to be reinbursed for the clutch they are him/hawing saying it was worn. I disagree! Worn clutches still work!! Any ideas?

Whst dealer did you bring it to? With as much as I work on Polaris atv's, A worn clutch doesn't cause shifting problems if it is shifthing in and out of gear your talking about. Now a worn clutch will cause shifting problems when accellorating and decellorating. Sounds like they don't know which kind of shifting problem you have. granted the new clutch may fix one shifting problem, but not the other. And these bits you talk about. Would they be metal. Last time I checked the scramble had a seperate motor and tranny. If it's got tranny problems right from the get go the dealer should take care of it. Because most likely they knew about it but got burned by the person that trade/sold it to them.

I guess I've never seen a scrambler with a 5 speed tranny. But it may have a couple of bent shift forks in it. which will cause it to jump out of gear and and grind up the tranny. Can't say I'm not suprized, by tousley hosing you. Jason the service manager is an id10t. And his brother david the sales manager is just as bad. And yes they probably knew there was a problem from the get go. But will deny it the whole way. sorry to hear you are having so much troble. I hope that they do repair it at no cost to you. Next time bring it to HP in South St.Paul.

    • If you fish the river it could. Ive done it and seen it done multple times. Hit a log that is.
    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!
