2018 Polaris General deluxe
Helping a friend who just purchased a 2018 general deluxe nearly identical to mine. As the title states this machine is very unstable on paved secondary roads, gravel logging access roads even trails this is not while trying to spin or even accelerate but steady speed 10mph and up. It wants to dart around left/right like the front end is worn out or toe is way out of whack but it isnt. It only does this in turf mode when the rear diff is open, once rear diff is locked it's a different machine, drives like it's on rails, no darting, very stable at any speed like mine. Nothing is loose or worn out as far as suspension or bearings go, have had it off the ground and everything is tight and spins free, tire pressure is good, even rotated tires. it does have adjustable control arms front and rear, the only thing I havent checked is the toe ( not camber, its good, yes I know the difference) on the rear wheels, this is the only thing that makes any sense to me is if one or both the rear tires is towed in or out and is pushing it left to right when rear diff is open? I know this is generally not something that is adjustable but this seems to be an uncommon issue to me as well. It's mind blowing how different this machine drives from unlocked to locked diff. Locked diff 65 on black top with one hand on the wheel no problem taking in the sights. open diff and 40 with 2 hands tight on the wheel feeling like it could run off the road at anytime if you tried to turn up the radio. Any input is appreciated, thanks in advance.
