That's awesome news bro. And quite possibly the first positive Polaris warranty story I've heard. I'm glad you got your ride back.

Wow,

That's great that you got it covered by warranty. I haven't had not one problem with my XP since I got it.

Well just one problem. My boys can't keep up on the trails!!!!!!

2009 Polaris 850 XP More Big Problems

My machine also has 28 Hours, and I just got it back at 25 Hours from the Warranty Service appointment. This morning at 28 Hours (All in Low Range and under 10 mph) It made a dull exploding sound and started blowing white smoke and there is oil all over the side of the engine coming from up on top somewhere. Looks really bad. Immediately trailered the ATV and took it back to Dealer in Maple Plain. Waiting for a call. Never had a blown engine and this is my fourth Sportsman since 1999. I think I've got one now... Must be a design issue.

Woah! Keep us informed. I need to know what the issue was so I can watch out for it with my unit.

I know that there was a recall on a crankcase breather valve in July. They claimed that the broken valve could trap water inside and freeze in cold temps resulting in blown engines. When I found out about the recall I called my dealer and they didn't even know that there was a recall out!! They got the repair kit in a week later and had me fixed in twenty minutes.

Whatever it is I hope it's covered by the warranty!!!

Unhappy Polaris 850 Blew Up Again...

Here it is less than 1 year later and my machine on December 5, 2010, did exactly the same thing that it did at 28 Hours a year ago on December 17, 2009. Blew the Valve Cover Seal on top of engine and blew oil smoke and oil all over the footplates. Last time they said the rebuild was covered by warranty... This time, same repeat of incident but I don't know about warranty.

Machine is back at dealer in Maple Plain, MN. Temp was about 20 Degrees and it was started and warmed at idle for 6-10 Minutes before slow roll up driveway at under 10 mph. Blew after 60 seconds. I wonder if there is a recall for valve cover pressure or water vapor plugging up something. It's spooky to run in cold weather which is stupid for their most expensive machine...

Smoothbassman posted something about a recall above. I'd make sure they (the dealer) fixed that. I really hope it works out for ya. Sorry for the run of bad luck.

You should be covered for a repeat of the same issue. Normally they find some way to try and get out of it by saying something else occurred. Stay on them until it is fixed.
