Ok, it's been a while since I've signed on but now that I have I'm concerned. RobG I respect your opinion and have concern that my 2004 Rinny has been a poor deciscion. I have the stalling problem that my dealer seems unconcerned with and my Buddies new 700 Polaris seems to be a dream. The 500 polaris he had was un-problematic and now he's loving life...MORE,the problem is my cash was invested on the Rinny and now I'm tapped!!! Is there any hope for me and my rig? I do like the machine but now I'm friggin' scared based on your analysis. Looking for some hope here...anyone?
