Tech Tips: May 2015

Did you know that you will lose 2-5lbs of tire pressure during the winter storage months?

If you ride (or have a loved one that does), please remember to check your tire pressure before you hit the open road. Under-inflated tires can be dangerous for you and your passenger. We use and recommend a mini air compressor from Slime to stay as safe as possible the entire season. 

We're offering them for only $42.95 until 5/31/15.

NEWS RELEASE: MINNEAPOLIS, MN (March 7, 2015) – After unleashing the much buzzed about Slingshot®, Polaris® debuts the most exclusive Slingshot® yet at Daytona Bike Week today. Delivering on the same high-octane experience, the limited edition Slingshot® SL LE is packed with head-turning features including striking Nuclear Sunset Orange coloring throughout. This sharp 3-wheel roadster is also equipped with dual windscreens and an interior LED white and blue lighting package for an exhilarating nighttime driving experience.

We encourage you to see and experience it for yourself.”

  • •  Optimized weight distribution and proprietary low-profile tires for maximum cornering

  • •  Lightweight and powerful, the Slingshot delivers exhilarating acceleration

Tech Tips: March 2015

Did You Know The Service Interval of Antifreeze is 2 Years?

As a friendly reminder we would like to remind you to check your antifreeze.  The average service interval of antifreeze is two years, we recommend to drain and fill your cooling system with extended life antifreeze to extend the service interval to 5 years.

 

  • Directly from Polaris:
  • New Extended Life Antifreeze Service Information:
  • [April 24, 2014]

Polaris is transitioning to a new antifreeze formulation in all liquid cooled applications. The current green 60/40 formulation will be replaced by a new yellow 50/50 Extended Life formulation which extends the antifreeze service interval from 2 to 5 years. Current green antifreeze is 100% compatible and can be mixed with the new Polaris Extended Life Antifreeze; however, mixing will not extend the service interval. To receive the full Extended Life product benefits, drain the entire cooling system and fill with new Extended Life Antifreeze product. The new Extended Life Antifreeze will be available to order at Babbitt's in the following quantities: 1 us quart and 1 us gallon.
