GGrrrrrrr Polaris Undersized Battery
So what happens when your battery goes weak and the engine seems to crank just fine?
Well the ignition system made by PVL freaks out and the back firing begins, LOUDLY!!!!
Not only did it pop the exhaust pipe off the exhaust manifold but it took out the ole' coupler. Man does it look like it caught fire.
I decided it was time for a change and fit a Bombardier size battery in my Matrix. A little foam cutting and NO problem with fitment. 510 cold cranking amps instead of 300, niiiiiice!!

Thought I was the only one who put bowties on all of their toys! Funny how picky that PVL electrical system is...The battery on my Harley is slightly smaller, and it's never had a problem starting that big twin.

The carbon fiber bow tie has a funny but sad story to it.
Our little Avi club has been wanting ONE thing that brought us all together and we decided it was going to be a carbon fiber bow tie.
Well after about a year, a bunch of failed attempts, and crappy products, one of the members here at the GH decided he could whip these out for our club.
Well, the product is nice BUT not cost effective to produce. The cost and time to make the product escalated....................long story short, that's the only one made.

when my pro did that it caused one of the jetworks balls to stick and running it didn't unstick it.needless to say it burnt a hose coupler at the stinger while on the water

That's good to know! I actually ran it a little ways before it completely burst and had no over-heat issue BUT I'm going to pull them apart and have a look see. I also removed all of the pipes and checked every coupler hose, all the others look killer.
