@Farmer....I too am a proud new owner...and I'm not bashing the machines capabilities as I've run it through one **** of a test in the rice fields of South LA. Its been stuck thrice in as many months, so too, I'm well aware of its limitations, which by the way are neck and neck with the other SxS's I own! As many, myself included, have said. It's an easy fix. There just isn't one available yet. I'm not one to rig job anything, I'd rather it be done right once than patched together till a better alternative is there. The "pioneer has to go" did exactly what I intended it to do, got yalls attention! Will mine "have to go"? If between the logic minded folks on here and a few others in the industry I've rallied for help can't come up with something better than nothing to solve this issue, then Yes, mine will go.
@David. I agree, It would certainly be a shame, but as I mentioned earlier, I spend the majority of my day on the bike. Staying dry is important to me. I will be swapping the front tires for a set of Less aggressive rubbers this week and try that for a few days as we have rain/sleet coming Tuesday. Maybe that will help.
@Barry...I second the belts. Didn't want another one either. Like I've said. The pioneer is a beast off-road, I've proven that daily. I was skeptical with absence of a low range, but that hasn't seemed to be an issue at all. Hopefully the right person will see this and get the ball rolling on a fix that will benefit us all! Theres are a lot of industry folks reading this forum behind the scene. The number of guests on here is crazy. There is a ton of good info here already for aftermarket designers to embrace. This thread just adds to that.
Thanks to all for the responses today.
