    Talk me off the ledge

    One of the only things AC had going for them as it relates to me, is my local dealer being Country Cat. Well, my XX has been sitting outside in their lot with weeds growing around it (and now a foot of snow on it) for the past two months waiting on a part from AC. No communication from AC on when it will be available, or if it ever will be. I was one of the last hold outs in not bashing Textron/AC and how they are treating their customers. Now, I'm just another one of the many folks getting chat on by them. I got to thinking, if I was one of the guys still making payments on my XX and parts are not available, could there be any legal recourse? Don't manufactures by law, have to make parts for a certain number of years after manufacturing a specific machine? All this makes a guy want to light it on fire and find something else to ride and bitch about.

    This is what I was afraid of and one of the reasons I now have a Honda. Good luck and I assume they have tried to reach a regional rep??

    If Country Cat cant get the part, imagine how tough it is for a smaller dealer. What is the part? Dune trip coming up...

    that does suck, what part you needing? I found out this last year one shop says back ordered but found another who could have it for me in a couple days..country cat and some of the "bigger" dealers the same..case in point, I needed the bearing for the out put shaft and it showed discontinued..4 of the Bigger shops said at least 3 months, one said I needed to buy the complete out put shaft assembly to get that bearing and also 3 months out, and one shop knew about the discontinued bearing but had me a replacement to my place in 3 days..Im finding out dealers aren't being well supported and equally taken cared of..I called 5 of the so called biggest dealers in the country and only one was informed and able to help..

    I feel your pain... tells us what your hunting? There are alot of people on here with connections that may be able to help source what you need to get you up and running. I recently ordered something from BassPro for my XX (XTR) and had it in 2 days.

    Research the lemon laws of your state , they may or may not apply to a SxS (not sure if you can license them in MN to be street legal)

    Then call the owners of country cat and tell them to fix the dang thing or refund your money.. Somewhere on the site someone posted the procedure for getting parts in a hard to find situation.

    Have you tried getting the dimensions and going to a bearing house to get one? Anytime I need a bearing I just go to IBT and they measure and have what I need. There is one not far from me if you can get me dimensions I could check for you.

    I would post a link but think that is a no-no?? Google IBT bearing and you will find it.

    Porkchop I have ran into similar problem trying to order water pump for wildcat xx. Textron is telling me it is back order till 03/20/2020. Can I ask you what the circumstances that lead up to your wildcat xx needing this bearing replaced on the crank?
