How can anybody like electronic fly by wire gas pedal. Rode a friends junkie XP and can not believe how much smoother my 800 is and how much more control you have. Junk pure XP junk!

It's the wave of the future Sam. In time I'm sure there will be some tweaks to the CPU algorithms to make them a little more responsive and all will be good. Throttle cables will meet the same fate as carburetors. Could also be that there's a bit of a learning curve on getting used to a throttle by wire system. If you put 8000 miles on an 800 and jump into a 1000 I think it's unrealistic to expect them to respond the same.

Or you could just be fishing in which case I took the bait.

The truth is that ALL Polaris's are junk! But as long as we spend the $ on them, they will continue to make and sell them.

Yeah I'm waiting on Yamahas next announcement. These cheap-ass bushings, ball-joints, TR-ends and bearings, I'm done with. But I will defend the FBW tho. It takes a little seat-time to get used to, but after a while the weirdness goes away. I'd much rather have it than a cable.

I honestly cant tell its fly by wire on mine and I am pretty sensitive to performance things. I will tell you the suspension sucks for high speed connering compaired to my 900. So now I got to drop more coin to make it handle the way it should.

I've had TBW HD's since 09 & would never go back! Have you ever broken a throttle cable at 10:00pm at Clingmons Dome & have to push a 800lb bike you'd be glad you had one less item to break! It's
just more technology coming to offroad & you have no throttle lag instant power but it can be a bit touchy to get use to!
