Thanks for asking. Sled is at dealer and they’re waiting on parts. I’m waiting to hear back on an ETA.
I’ve asked my sales guy about a next step and he said the GM is reaching out to Yamaha to see what can be done.

Earlier post asked about location and dealer...I’d sooner not say, as I don’t want
to give the dealership a bad name...they’re doing all they can for me, and I appreciate it.

Did you happen to ask if the dealership could give you something to ride until your sled is fixed correctly.

I didn’t. I wouldn’t have the opportunity to ride before the weekend, and it’s supposed to be ready before then.

Picked it up Thursday afternoon. Many thanks to the crew at the dealership who worked w Yamaha to get in parts early to get me on the trail 3 weeks earlier than they first thought.

Got a 60km ride in yesterday. All seemed good.

Leave today with family for a 3 day sled trip to Sudbury area w 2 other families, so, here’s hoping!!

Nice. I think you will be glad you hung in there.

I just came back from Quebec with mine (AC 9000 version 146 Crosstour) and it was awesome. 228 miles on the last day and the sled kept me both comfortable and smiling.
