Unfortunately for me nothing. It's currently at Ball Equipment with the motor torn down. Hopefully I will get some news this week on its fate.

Whaaaat? When did you loose the motor?

Mine has been sitting idle nearly all winter. The lake I usually go on for cruising, ice fishing, yearly hockey tournament/ beer tent never froze enough for any riding. The bed has been serving work bench duty for a miter saw during my remodel projects.

It started using oil at the end of the season last year. Want to get it all taken care of before riding season.

Thats a bummer. Hopefully its more of a top end freshen up versus any major internals. At least its at the best Polaris dealer around!

I just bought mine this winter and put 200 miles on it. It hasn't even seen dirt yet!

Replaced the stock Arctic Cat Prowler headlights with SuperBrite LEDs, switched my street tires back on, and removed the plow. Tearing the engine down to re-ring it and replace gaskets with copper gaskets.

Spoke with Ball Equipment and it needs a valve job, rings and pistons. Now we are waiting to hear from the extended warranty company on the claim.

I hope for the best, but I can foresee a "wear and tear" denial in the near future :mad:

Nice lights, Jmarco! Usually, if you order ~6000K color, they come pretty close to matching the LEDs. But if your experience is like mine (I have a 30"er and HIDs also), you'll probably turn off the HIDs anyway when you have the light bar on. When I turn on my bar, they overpower the HIDs to the point where I just turn them off to save the amps!

That's what I was thinking to forde. Those are the ddm tuning 6000k lights. Everyone on "the other forum" suggested go with those. Looking at them now I think I should have got the 5000k. But you are right once I turn the light bar on I normally turn the headlights off

LED's have sure come a long way! Before, they never had a decent headlight bulb, now you have multiple brands available. I had a HID conversion on mine, but replaced them with LEDs! My amp draw per bulb (keep in mind this is for headlights) is .97, this is pretty decent when compared to the HIDs I replaced!
