Default The dusting up around the bags after a ride issue

Has anyone else noticed how dusty it gets back there after a ride? It's almost like there's a vacuum at the rear of the bike or something

When you take off the back fender you will find a HUGE hole. Just get something and cover it. You should cover it from the wheel side like this.

Default Didn't work for me

OK, I'm the newbie here and I have NO intention of ruffling any feathers, but . . . . . One thing that bugged me about my new Cross Roads was the constant dust on the rear fender and seat area, so when I saw this fix I thought "Cool" and I tried it. I made a nice "dust pan" out of 1/8 aluminum, drilled and bolted it through the unused holes in the sub frame. After a 20 mile ride I was bummed to see the same old crud spread all over my midnight cherry baby. The third pic is from when I got home. So I have to call "BS" on this fix and head back to the drawing board. I think I'm going to try and form a foam or rubber seal to fit in the triangular area between the fender and rear frame casting. I'll let ya know if it works. Oh yeah, your not missing a part, the thingy at the bottom of the sub frame is a trailer hitch prototype I'm working on. Be safe, Bryan

I was asking up above about that hole were the seat hook goes into..see it in the picture with the seat off. I believe you have to form some sort of dome and also attach it from the tire side. Maybe I'm wrong here.
Post up pick with what you end up with....I am very interested.

Hobopro I'm sorry I didn't mention the hole that Noemtz is talking about. Others are also sealing off the area between the bags and the fender with rubber tubing.

Call Polaris and complain. I did. I told them it's a nuisance we can live without and if they figure out a fix, to include all model years.

The more calls, the better. 888-704-5290.

Please spread this around on any posts you see on other Vic forums regarding this.
