2nd issue

Well gotta call from dealer there doing couple updates on the new bike and when they were driving it around the hub fell off and it had the tracks on so tore a bunch of stuff up. sounds like the nut that holds the hub on backed off said the cotter key was missing. well guess no coyote hunting this weekend.

That's really bad news. Who forgot the cotter pin?

Does the track bolt on to the stock hub? Or does the track take the place of the stock hub?

Oh not good. I would think the dealer would look it over before they sell it to you. Thought about requesting a full safety check while they are repairing it? You know stuff like cotter pins, brake caliper bolts, lug nuts.

Yep I think they owe you that at least. 30-60 mins. of just looking and checking.

Got a question, who put the tracks on? Sometimes, the installer will pull the hub off to get better access to install the A-arm shock dampener. They may have not put the cotter pin back in. If that is the case, it's not Arctic Cat's fault.
But if the hub wasn't removed to install the dampener, then yeah, might've been AC's bad.
Either that, or the dealership really f&$%#ed up driving the machine and either jumped it or hit something with the track (which can happen because of how wide they stick out)....
Glad it didn't happen while you had the kids in it.

Sorry to hear about the tranny issues. Do you have warranty to cover it. Which bushings on the front shocks, the mounting bushings? That is a new one I've never heard of. Tell us more.
Bad brake line??? Rubbed a hole in it or what. Leaking banjo fitting?
Tell us more, that way we can watch out for it on other machines.

Are you still running the tracks on it..
