It was sent to my local dealer from BRP, I was relentless on them, we were gearing up for a law suite if they had not worked with us. Not patting myself on the back but my dealer said it was us holding there feet to the fire that got that part made. We were documenting everything. I have come to believe the whole offroad industry is screwed up. They need more over site so crap like this won't happen. Anyway good luck.
Thank you for having the correct attitude. I am with you about this being piss poor engineering as I am an engineer myself. This is not a problem that one should face after they dish out a ton of money simply because BRP needs to have this lean of a mixture to pass emission standards. This gives them no authority to burn people's legs and the machine's own shock absorber. Similar behavior in the aviation industry would get them a criminal lawsuit.Sure we all can come up with some kind band ad but should not have to. The fault is with BRP, it's piss poor engineering. And not being honest. I took the stance I paid 12000.00 for the dam thing and not going to touch it with some some shitty fix.
I am in full support of what you are saying. You nailed it.In my opinion the exhaust heat shielding is a joke in engineering. Ad hoc parts with poor design and all they had to do is create an insulated tunnel (sealed) for the exhaust and add shielding back past the seat to solve the shock heat issue. Not some slopped together mix mash of bolted together aluminum pieces. I’m sure the tune helps, the overall design in my opinion lacks solid engineering. Now I’ve got to spend time and money to fix the mess, like others have.
