Default A couple questions...

Just brought home my 2013 High ball and have some questions.

Looking through the owners manual I see that the display has an "accessory mode" that can show trip 2, avg fuel consumption, etc. When I cycle through with the switch all I get is trip 1, odo, and rpm.

Am I missing something?

Second, I mentioned the "5 year warranty" which is on the website and if I would receive any paperwork on it. All the owner kept saying was "it's not a drivetrain warranty, and costs $400" or something like that. The website clearly says, 48 month extra Polaris warranty. What's the deal with that?

Thanks!

if you push the little button on the left hand control back side and didn't find #2 trip and more then dealer has to unlock it and that will coast you a few buck.

It sounds like your the second owner. Go to your dealer and when you see the service manger ask about transferring the warranty

So 2013s they don't just give you the updated display? Nickle and diming again? lol

Nope, brand new bike. I'm going to a victory ride today and going to ask the victory rep how it works.

That additional info on the display is a $50.00 upgrade/download the dealer can do for you.

I called Mies first as that's where I got my bike. They kind of heard of this but could not tell me "yes" we can do this, but we can try.

Hi,

I have unlocked (from the dealer) the speedo functions, it is well worth it, don't hesitate for the few bucks it costs.

As for the extended warranty, there are 2 types.
The advertised 5 years is indeed a basic full coverage 1 year warranty plus 4 years of polaris star, which covers drivetrain only.

When buying new or perhaps even used, who knows, you can buy the complete coverage extended warranty but the cost is rather high.
