Has anyone got a machine coming on the first allocations? I ordered mine on February 8th and still no word as to when. I heard September, now October some time. Has any one gotten a date or serial number yet?
It's like my Father used to say:Everyone seems pretty calm in the forum. I have read a lot of discontent among the troops on others.
They make kits so snowmobiles can be run in the summer, a studded rear tire and front ski retrofit, and your Spyder might handle the snowhttp://mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm
Do you agree with this than? It does follow what you are saying, Going through the power band, not full throttle! I was planning on going 20 miles, hopefully not in the snow, shift up to 4th gear and done over and over giving a health throttle crack and good load on the down shift. I was also strongly considering dumping the oil after that. Motorman suggests not using synthetic for the first 1500 miles either.
I have asked to take a factory tour, (no answer yet). Based on my plant visits to other auto and cycle plants, and the amount BRP publishes it has spent on the program, I would say the Spyder likely has a chassis dyno mid-assembly line. If it follows what I've seen in the past at other plants, after all the mechanical systems are installed, it would be run up through the gears, and a breaking test performed. The lines I have seen there is a "prompting screen" telling the "driver" when to shift and brake and the dyno is equipped with pass/fail analysis software.Thanks, fun subject. As you stated previously, are not the engines run at the factory as well? Do you think they put them through the paces there?
We are. Of the first three that we get, 2 are sold and 1 is going to be a permanent demo unitI know Joe (From the dealer here in town) told me that they have one ordered to keep in the showroom and use for a permanent Demo unit. Not sure if the other dealers are going to do this same thing.
