Okay this is simple but I had to post it. I was out riding the WC today around the neighborhood and in some fields and when I got home as always I did a walk around to see if anything came loose or was broke... To my surprise I noticed my Magneto Cap Cover missing.... yeah this is a $2.97 part but REALLY????? When you spend 16k on a machine you would expect something that simple to stay on. it looks like it's the same for all the 1000 so I am going to my local dealer tomorrow to get one, but has anyone heard of this being a problem for AC? I know I should have bought Japanese.... J/K

Part number 7 is what fell off... click on the pic to enlarge

So what's up with that?

yeah I can't complain too much, but if I were deep in the woods or something it would piss me off if water and mud got in the threads... I know the cover is more of a 'dust' cover, to protect the seal. I just wanted to keep the forum informed so I can see if this is something that happens a lot or just an anomaly. But I only have like 2 hours on the machine!!!

Rode our for 60km and noticed the rear driveshaft boot came off. Just had to slide it back on and clamp better.

They read it they just wont speak up because then they admit there is a problem. Instead they report back to factory and make changes.:cool:

just be sure to use your stock lug nuts with aftermarket wheels and all will be fine.

This is the first year in production.

One must expect some deficiencies in workmanship and/ordesign. I watched this in Commanders and XPs when they were introduced. Hopefully nothing is too serious.

Cheers!
