Good deal. Arctic cat doesn't like to pay that's no shock.

What happened exactly with the e brake causing the fire? Drove with e brake on?

Saw a Guy do that in Gordons Well dunes last season. No fire but smoking badly.

Glad to see AC is picking and choosing who they want to cover……… This should have nothing to do with the dealer, but manufacturer of the product (Arctic Cat). Also, it seems that AC is helping those that don't have fire insurance coverage and screwing those that have full coverage -This should be against the law...

What about their attorneys having you sign an agreement not to hold them liable in the future????? Arctic Cat has my phone number and they should be the one stepping up... Instead my insurance company (plus my deductible out of pocket) and future increase in insurance premiums is being affected. Screw Arctic Cat!!!!!!!

My understanding is there's a different type of material used for the rotor and pads. I wonder why the change………………… This is about as bad as their attorneys sending out a sticker to admit guilt of known fire problems...

Glad it worked out for ya. I've read about this a lot on here. Should be a factory recall. Unfortunately i guess people have to get hurt or a bunch of lawsuits (rhino) before they will do that.
