I know this has been discussed many times before. We just bought our SS last Saturday and just love it. My only concern is the gear whine and growl from the angle drive. I am a retired Ford/Lincoln heavy line tech and have rebuilt enough rear ends to know that this noise is not normal if it was set up right. When I asked the service manger at the dealer about it he said it should get a little better but will still make noise. I really think Polaris needs to address this problem. Maybe thats why they want us to wear full face helmets so we won't hear how loud the gear noise is. Will see how it is after we get more miles on it.
