Does the Matryx 850 have a break in period in the ECM... like the BRP products?

 

I have personally never noticed a performance change in the 850 or 800 E-Tec that some guys claim if anything some of the fastest speeds I have recorded were in break in.  When I first picked up my 2018 Polaris Assault it was a dog and sure enough as the miles added up and the engine was worked it started gaining, and gaining, and gaining RPM.  That was the first modern 2 stroke I have experienced a performance change in during break in vs post break in.  If the 850 is similar I expect the same.  Time will tell...

My 2019 summit came out of breakin way early for some reason. Went from 80% remaining to no warning on startup, so approximately 80miles. My rpm went up almost 200 after that, so I had to click down.
My dealer confirmed that there was no more breakin period left on my sled with very low miles on it.

Jamie - Did you get a little more power each time you replaced the fouled spark plugs? All kidding aside, I did see polaris actually released the info pertaining to how their PCM controlled break in procedure works, with regards to oil / fuel consumption rates IIRC.

I can honestly say on the 800 CFI I never replaced a plug, it ran perfect from the get go.  Both of our 2018 Assaults actually ran as far as run quality very well.  Given the choice between an 800 CFI and 800 Etec I would choose the 800 CFI.  No idea yet on the 840 though I don't have any experience with them.

Not surprising as the 800 etec seems so anemic compared to the 850 etec.

The Matryx is a very nice sled. I will be on a 146 SBA next year for trails. Fit and finish is closing the gap hard between Doo and Poo. Doo is taking more of the fun factor away with their new suspension in trade for better cornering. The AXYS sleds can handle just as good if not better while still having some playfulness to them.

Regardless of bias there are a lot of Polaris sleds being sold right now and people seem to be switching from Doo to Poo. I sold 2 850 ProRMKs this fall and both buyers were coming from skidoo.

Competition is good.  You would think the new Polaris gauge will push BRP/Ski-Doo into a new gauge setup faster than they otherwise would have.
