Here's the Battery Minder family from Polaris.

== OWNERS MANUAL


993127 All the MY21 Matryx sleds are in the same Owner's Manual, just download it, then view or print parts of it, as you wish.9

== SERVICE MANUAL

9850064 R01 Oct. 13, 2020 version

== CLOTHING

286144009 Womens vest XL $200

286144106 Mens vest L $200

Insulated vest with integrated battery-operated heating
Comes with two charging cords; 12v cord that can be charged through a vehicle and 1 USB charging cord

Those extra cold rides just got a whole lot better thanks to this heated vest. Made from high-quality nylon, its heated feature makes it ideal for long rides in tough conditions. It plugs directly into your snowmobile via an RCA plug and comes with a rechargeable battery that you can charge at home via a wall plug. This vest offers 100 grams of insulation to keep you warm and dry, no matter what the trail will throw at you. For a comfortable experience throughout all your adventures, throw this on and hit the trail.

== GLOVES Touch Screen

These make it easier to use the Polaris 7SDD GPS/gauge, as well as Smartphones.

At this time, Polaris DOES NOT have touch screen gloves.
So here are some of the choices out there...

Carhartt touch screen gloves

Columbia Sportswear touch screen gloves

Duluth Trading touch screen gloves


FLY Aurora Insulated touch screen, gauntlet ebay $65

North Face touch screen gloves

Refrigiwear thermal touch screen gloves. globalIndustrial $9


== STORAGE

Polaris is introducing a new storage mounting system along with the Matryx snowmobiles. It is called the Lock & Ride Flex system.


At this time they have M2 passenger seats and 4 storage bags that mount on the flat tunnel behind the driver's seat and attach to the tunnel. The MY21 Matryx sleds have 2 pair of these Lock & Ride Flex attaching points on the tunnel.

The M2 passenger seat needs 1 pair to attach. The Adventure
storage bags use 2 pair to attach. The Sport storage bags use 1 pair to attach. So at this time, you can attach 1 M2 passenger seat and 1 Sport storage bag, OR 1 Adventure/Sport storage bag, OR 2 Sport storage bags. Polaris is working on racks and liquid containers, but they are not announced at this time.

2884939 Adapter Retrofit kit to mount Lock & Ride Flex storage accessories on AXYS or PRO-RIDE snowmobiles with full flat tunnels & T-Slot Tunnel Attachment System in the top of that tunnel. It is a wide piece that mounts into the T-Slots and provides the sockets for the feet/tabs on the bottom front of Lock & Ride Flex storage to fit into. This is not compatible with attaching the M2 passenger seat. $29US avail

Any of these four Lock & Ride Flex Tunnel Storage bags require some assembly and initial mounting.

TOOLS REQUIRED:

  • Safety Glasses
  • Screwdriver Torx T25, Socket for T25
  • Socket for 8mm hex & 10mm hex nuts/bolts
  • Ratchet handle for sockets
  • Torque Wrench

Update Shocks used on Matryx sleds. Added Tracks available during Snow Check.

Over the past weekend, Polaris released a coupon good for $150 off on $1,000 purchase of Accessories, Apparel, Parts, Lubricants & Polaris Power. You need to pull down the coupon and use it either online or at your Polaris dealer, before the coupon expires Sept. 30, 2020. 1 coupon per customer. The coupon available at this time is just a United States promotion.


The fine print indicates "For purposes of this offer, PG&A specifically includes the following brands: Polaris, Ranger, Polaris General, RZR, Sportsman, Polaris Ace, Polaris Northstar Coolers, all Kolpin (both Polaris & Kolpin part numbers), all Pro Armor (both Polaris & Pro Armor part numbers), Trail Tech (all part numbers), Polaris Snowmobiles, Polaris Timbersled and Polaris Power. "

I guess If you've got a sled coming with the new 7SDD group ride display, you could buy a Trail Tech Voyager Pro for one of your other sleds, and since the Voyager Pro supports Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) radio communications with the 7SDD, you could see that sled's location & speed & direction on your Matryx 7SDD Group Ride map screen and they could see you on their Voyager Pro screen. No cellular phone service needed.

Great information Excursion. Do you know if the new lock and ride will work on a 2020 sled? I would think the tunnel would but how it would fit up with the seat and tank on 2020?

There is an adapter kit available to allow lock and ride accessories to be used on Axys models. The tunnel T slots are the same. If anyone has other aftermarket accessory mounts they will fit on the Matryx as well.

2884939 Adapter kit to mount Lock & Ride Flex storage accessories on AXYS or PRO-RIDE snowmobiles with full flat tunnels & T-Slot Tunnel Attachment System in the top of that tunnel. $29US ?August 2020

This adapter kit was mentioned in the 2021 Accessories catalog. BUT, I know some accesssories like the M2 (Matryx passenger) seat, have two large prongs in front that go into the driver's seat base. You would need the sockets for those prongs to be on your seat base, I would imagine.

on edit: Just Noticed that the Accessories Catalog on page# 67 says that the M2 Matryx passenger seat, is NOT compatible with these Adapters!!

The name of this new Matryx storage mounting system is Lock & Ride FLEX. Pictures of this attachment kit are not yet available.

I think you should check with a Canadian dealer or with Polaris, to see if the coupon is good for Canadian customers.

If you follow that link that I gave you, at the top of the screen you will see a black bar with a drawing of a globe and "EN-US" to its right.
Click on that and change your country to Canada - English, and that offer of a coupon will no longer be displayed. Your pricing will also change to Canadian Dollars, so if you are from the US, you should change it back.

I haven't seen any conflicting information from Polaris. The online specs at this moment, for the 2021 INDY VR1 show the IFS shocks, exactly as in my reference post, "WER Velocity shocks." No mention of 2" body. What have you seen from Polaris that is different?
A link or a print screen would be helpful.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The $150 PGA coupon does seem to be offered to Canadian customers as well, you just have to walk thru the website in the correct fashion to get it displayed to you! I have seen it twice now in the last 24 hours.

---------------------------------------------

Remember, the fine print in the brochures and in the ordering contracts... about machine specifications & features being subject to change up to the time of delivery. In this time of shortages, and vendors being closed or doing limited operations, it must be difficult to produce whole goods on schedule. I don't know for sure if Polaris has built ANY MY21 snowmobiles, let alone the Matryx line which has many changes from previous years production.

In a lot of the press releases from media outlets they said it’s 2” on vr1 also on the display models and ones that where going around to the dealers they had 2” IFS shocks. The polaris spec pages are always full of errors

Thanks, my post matches what is in the big 2021 Snowmobile Brochure also. We'll have better information when Owners Manuals and Parts Listings start showing up for the MY21 Matryx sleds.
