Yah, I understand what your saying. I'm a pretty good mechanic with these things and do most of my own work at all levels, I've even rebuilt a few engines (valves, pistons, cams, timing chains, etc), but getting older and do not care much to do that anymore. But I'll tackle most of the rest, my one plug for Polaris is parts cost is usually reasonable (may need to be) and everyone makes accessories. I Ripped a CV boot on my general last weekend and was looking online, hell I can get a whole rear drive shaft fully assembled now for the General for $65 bucks from Moose manufacturing, they usually make good stuff; that shocked me!! For that I'll carry an extra. Dealer is tempting me, says I can get more for my General now than I paid for it; he's going to call me when they get an RMax (deluxe edition, I know it's not called that, but what ever) in stock for me to test ride. Just looking for a few honest opinions; I usually keep my stuff a long time, I ride it hard at times but it always gets cleaned up, checked over and plenty of TLC after rides.
