2020 Outlander XMR 1000r Max
I have an ongoing issue that has been present for the last eight months with my 2020 XMR 1000r MAX. When it runs it is a beast. I can go out riding and run it all I want for all day and all night with no issues. I can shut it off for a couple hours and will fire right up. When I park it and shut it down until the next day, it will not fire when I try to start it. Will just roll over and over with the starter. Then I leave it alone for a couple days then try it again, will fire right up and I can go riding. Lately it has been going up to 5 days sitting before it will start and run. Over the last 3 weeks I have been dropping it off at the dealer when it will not start. They have been testing it and cannot figure out what is causing the problem. They say it has spark and fuel but will not run. After screwing around with it for a couple days it will start and run. They have tried duplicating the issue by riding it around the dealership grounds and cannot get it to not fire. So I have been picking it up on Fridays and running it around in the mountains and dropping it off Saturday afternoons when it will not start. I picked it up three hours ago and went for a ride out back by the river and then came home. As I pulled into my driveway, I could smell gas. So I pulled it right up into the bed of my truck and shut it off. I could tell it was running crappy while the gas was running down the right side of my engine and plastics and soaking my pant leg. Lots of gas coming out. It stopped flowing after I shut down my machine and the fuel pump quit. I came inside to warm up and grab some coffee and let the machine cool down. This is when I am writing this post. Think I will pull the plastics on the RH side and see if I can find what is leaking. Or maybe I should just drop it off to the dealer and let them take care of it. The one year warranty has expired but I have the two year extended warranty on it. I am wondering if this is connected with the issue I have been experiencing for the last eight months.
