2013 Cross country bought in Sept took it in to have them check what I thought was a leak the rear exhaust gasket. Mechanic found both front and rear heads are leaking and Polaris is replacing heads they say there was a problem in the mold process of the heads. Polaris is shipping out new heads but it will be two or three weeks before I get my bike back, no bike for the holiday that sucks.

Dam sorry to hear about the bike. They wouldn't let you keep it until they could get it in?

Unfortunately if I took it home and something happened internally they could use that to say they are no longer responsible. Unfortunately my other bike is also in pieces but for modification purposes so we'll just have to deal. My wife being the positive one reminds me that I will be getting the Arlen Ness Diamond cut heads as a replacement (no cost to me) and since they have to pull the top end off and "Diamond Heads" is located here in Vegas I can have the jugs done at the same time.

just brought my bike in last week for leaking around the front cylinder, it was where the seal was for top and lower jugs. It is being covered under warranty but was not told if they were replacing the gasket or the cylinder. Guess I will be calling to get details.

Yep, Mechanic said Polaris knows about the problem and I am getting new heads since I just bought the bike in Sept. Mine leaked around the front of the front cylinder to the left side of the bike and the rear cylinder just under the rear exhaust also the left side.

I might ask them about it but I don't want to do any work that may void the warranty. When I bought the bike I got a 5 year full warranty as part of the sale promotion.
I have a Honda Fury that I'm in the middle of fabricating and modifying for the upcoming Las Vegas Bike-Fest in Oct. so most of my spare money is going that way at the moment. The little woman is behind it but I don't want to push a good thing you know

I've got 7200 miles but I noticed it a while ago. I think its done it since day one I just thought it was road oil and dirt at first. Then the exhaust gasket but after I re-torqued the exhaust and it came back I started looking a little closer and noticed it was between the fins that separate cylinder and head. then noticed the same thing from the front.
