Well, at 200 miles I figured it would not hurt to rip it up some today. I can tell you right now........the S is impressive. I was catching air on some of the whoops and the thing lands like a pillow. My buddy was on a Suzuki Z400 behind me and he was amazed at how the S landed with no backlash. I climbed some hills today and I feel like this thing really is capable of anything within reason. The major drawback I see to this thing is lack of EBS. Hopefully the Dirty Dawg clutch will help. I hope this Polaris turns out to be as reliable as the Rhino has been.

BTW Tim..........got LOTS of compliments today on the blue paint. Thanks again.

It has EBS, you just need to lean how to use it.

Gunny........as I told you before, the S has considerably different EBS than your LE did. Go ride it at Brimstone or Windrock and you will see what I mean. I am clear on how to use the S.......I have over 200 miles on it now. It has NOTHING compared to the Rhino in the EBS dept. The S is geared lower but still cannot hold a candle to the Rhino with engine braking. But what do I know?

Shane........can you chime in? What are your impressions of the S? If you had one complaint (other than the payment....LOL) what would it be?

Lack of EBS is hard to get use too. The CV boot that I problems with at Brimstone. The heat shield that make so much noise. Other than that I loving it. The Rhino had its problems also. Me and the other half went out for about a 30 mile. cruise this afternoon. The S was so much smoother and faster.

Faster, smoother and more fun!! I just know when I ride the steep hills I want more engine braking. The brakes on the S are fantastic, but when it is wet I like to have LOTS of EBS to slow me down.

Yeah guys you just have to learn how to use your engine. Are you guys stupid or something??? If you have to learn how to use a engine brake, then you probably don't really have one.

I guess down shifting a car classifies as an engine brake roflmao

I never said anybody was stupid, however remarks like this make me wonder uplaugh Yes LT the S has engine braking, no its not as low and strong as the rhino's but if you understand how it works and how it works best which is in low with the awd on it does help quite a bit.
I dont expect Big R to understand his seat time is in rhinos and golf carts. roflmao

I understand it all to well. You free spin in an RZR if you don't keep your foot on the gas. So no Gunny you really don't have an engine brake. You are some what down shifting. Just like a car. Put it in gear to slow down. It works OK but it is not the same as an engine brake.

That would be the same thing as the Mac dealer telling me "sure it has an engine brake, just down shift to a lower gear". roflmao

I drive a RZR- The engine braking sucks................It's just a poser as far as engine brakings concerend. If you free-wheel it, you will toast the clutch-bearing, many pics, posted everywhere. Poor design. period.

Like I said.........Dirty Dawg clutch kit. It's supposed to help tremendously. I ordered it last week so hopefully I will have it in before the Labor Day weekend ride.
