So anyone else lose theirs?
My driver side plug is already MIA. Any tips on keeping them in before I order a couple more of em?
Maybe some bicycle inner tube as a gasket to provide some friction?
And of course Polaris didnt design a plug that wouldnt fall through the same hole it was supposed to be plugging.

Oring help

I know it's been mentioned but for those looking at doing the o-ring fix (everyone should) you need a 1/8" thick 1-1/2" id o-ring. Local hardware store should have them for under a buck.
We had looked at machining plugs with a larger od on the top so they would not be able to fall out it left lose, but sense the perfect fix cost under a buck we decided against it.

Mine is mounted from top, so far haven't lost it, but I like the idea of the o-ring to make the plug more secure.




Is this something they changed for 17 ? Mine fits some what snug and mount from top?

Just heat the ears on the plug a little with a torch or heat gun take a pliers and bend them down some and let them cool. They will fit good and tight and actually turn hard. I had to use a pliers to turn mine into place but they are not gonna fall out.
This is what I did but instead of pliers I just heated the ears and pressed it down on the shop floor and let it cool. Nice and snug now.

Thought we lost one in July...first trip. Bought two from CheapCycleParts.com

Doing a bit of a mod to my Rokblokz mud flaps...and there the lost plug is sitting on top of the skid plate right behind the front frame tube.

I'll have to follow the fix...
