Helmet plug and spare belt..... I think that skidoo should give us stimulus checks to pay for our fuel and lodging too!! I love the saying for the price of these things, get a second job!
See post below.You don't bring a phone with you? Not even for emergencies?
100%. I did use it once this year to try the BRP Go! app. Started with a full battery, stuffed in in the glove box, rode 175 miles, it still had plenty of charge when I got home.I'll bring my phone, already fully charged and use it only if there's an emergency. I don't care what time it is, what direction I'm going, who's doing what on Facebook......
I like the idea. Some dealers will install accessories for free if bought through them so kind of the same.Ok, can understand, everyone rightly has their own situation, perspective, totally good.
What about this, on a spring order sled have a box you can check that will get you these two items if you want them at a truly reasonable price so you don't have to dink around putting on the heated shield plug that can get done on the build, and when you pick up the sled it has a spare belt and your good to go.
Easy solution for all of the folks who would want these both, and my guess it's more than a few.
Yeah - that was it! It didn't a thing to do with the Covid and every type of powersports being sold out. It had to have been that "free" belt and oil.I like to keep my phone plugged in so it doesn't freeze. Last time it froze it wouldn't turn on for a good 6+ hours. I could see no belt coming with a sled but the RCA plug... considering the manufacturing cost (pennies), the fact that most people use them, the fact that Skidoo's flagship helmet requires it, and the hassle to install the plug on a brand new machine... the RCA should be standard, no reasonable debate possible. Some people don't use their hand heaters, should those be optional add-ons? Some don't use the e-start. Some never go 100mph. Some don't use the LinQ system.
Polaris had a deal in December, free belt and gallon of oil with every sled purchase. Polaris's sold like hotcakes in December! Maybe they were onto something.
I don't know if that's a fair analogy. At the risk of jinxing myself, I haven't changed a flat tire in 20 years. Belts on sleds, three in two years although not mine. If I get a flat, worst case I call a wrecker or AAA. Out alone at night and sled blows belt in north jingweeds it's possible to freeze to death.Spare belt?...................Tesla's have no spare tire
I was watching a dozen or so sleds at dealerships and they didn't move much until the free belt promotion. So I do believe there was some correlation... a Polaris belt and gallon of oil is an easy $250. If sleds were "flying off the shelves" like they normally do in October/November then Polaris would have no reason to give away $250 in December.Yeah - that was it! It didn't a thing to do with the Covid and every type of powersports being sold out. It had to have been that "free" belt and oil.
Gotta admit, that one made me laugh out loud - thank you!
