Welcome Roady,
Congratulations - probably the best choice that you can make in my opinion [smile]

Good to see that you lashed out and got a machine with all the refinements - they are a sweet ride.

I have not heard anyone else having your issues with any tune (so far).  Did they give you an ETA on the arrival of new tune?  I had a mate who had to 'wait for a new tune'... ended up waiting 4 months and the issue was still not fixed on his Scout.  Ended up trading in for another bike.  I don't mean to scare you with this comment but if it was me, knowing how Polaris work, I would be asking for a firm date... they don't know exactly when the ECU update will be released but they do come out more or less monthly.  AND get an agreement now on what they will do next if that Feb-2017 tune doesn't fix the issue.  For example, replace the ECU itself, not just the tune.  They always drag their feet because a replacement ECU costs $1,500+ and often have to wait around for one to get shipped so it is worth finding out if there is a stock of them in AU.  Polaris 'prefers' to fix issues with revised tune (free) instead of component replacement (and the owner has to suffer waiting around for who knows how long).  I can understand using that method when a majority of bikes exhibit the symptom but when only a handful (or just one) of bikes have that symptom (meaning, it is not the norm), it seems unfair to the owner who just handed over $40K+.  Timely repair would be appropriated.

Another option is, can they install the same tune you had on your bike when you first picked it up?  As in Nov-2016 or Oct-2016 ECU tune?  I say this because you said your bike was fine when you picked it up but started playing up after the first service when they installed the latest tune.

Your dealer said to you to keep on riding and if anything goes wrong, you are covered but if your bike is running lean (too lean?), it could damage the bits inside the engine?  

Keep us informed of how this gets fixed mate.
