Default Adding red rail/ spindle color option on the Anniversary Edition Color scheme

Trying to gauge interest in Polaris adding the option to have red rails and spindles on the navy blue Anniversary edition color scheme. Currently on the build tool it only offers bare aluminum or black (which has navy spindles). In my humble opinion the red rail and spindle combo would make the Anniversary colors with blue tunnel ROCK! Trying to present the idea to Polaris. Thanks.

Was thinking same thing. Thought if I do it I would go raw and have them powder coated. Would be better if we could just order it that way. Not sure why we shouldn’t be able to have any color combo we want. Not like it cost them more.

The only problem with ordering them plain is the rails will also be plain. Wish they would have given a red option also. Either way I may change the spindles out to red.


On a side note if you have the spindles powder coated make sure to tell them to no-coat (plug) all the mounting holes.

The powder coat won’t shrink the holes enough for the bolts not to fit. The bushing fits pretty tight, I would defiantly plug that hole.

Honestly I don’t see why they don’t have it as an option, everything is mass produced so they’d have them all painted up but I’m sure it’s just confusion At the assembly line. I see in the catalog they offer the spindles and rails so ordering them separate might be a way too

Already sent Nick a message about this. They have the request but I'm not sure if they can pull it off. Nick tells me it's not easy at this point. I'll let you know once I know.

Notice the decal package on some differ from the others? The all black is different from the all red. Wondering if this is a error on the build tool?
