2015, 700 wildcat limited edition (blacked out), seen and hole behind passengers seat melting in. Replaced the heat shield as it was making a noise also. Was on a few rides and bike worked great with no issue. Wife and I went for a drive, going very slow just enjoying the woods when bike shut down. When I looked at my wife who was sitting in passengers seat there was flames coming from behind her seat. After reading a few comments on this and seeing that it is an issue. Has anyone seen a fix to the problem. I am going to cut the bad piece out and build new out of fibreglass and put new heat tape on the whole thing

Welcome scottmclellan. Here is the sticky link for all known Trail issues and fixes. If you haven't already, I recommend harnesses for your Trail. Harnesses will save your life one day.

Thread cleaned up. I have been driving SXSs longer than anybody on this forum, since my 05 Rhino. I will always recommend harnesses and safety to all members, new or not. If another member does not agree, that's fine. There is not going to be a debate, or have a new member's thread derailed.
