Thanks Mark. It did feel really good to get it back on the road again. We took it for a 100 mile ride after the sun went down and everything was perfect. The steering seemed more responsive and smoother at low sppeds and it tracked stright as an arrow at high speeds. I can't wait to get the Corbin seat on next.First, congrats on getting your beloved machine roadworthy again!
Second, was there any discussion between you and the BRP rep regarding the potentially dangerous control problems you experienced? I would hope to hear BRP is looking for a fix to eliminate such a hazardous steering system failure mode...
Yes there was detailed dissucssion about the symptoms I experienced as well as speed, road conditons ect. It was interesting to both of us that what I experienced happend at speeds 65-70 mph at frist and then at all speeds with no codes being thrown. The DPS is to aid in steering at speeds of 35mph or less only and is not active above those speeds as I understand it. The DPS will be disassmebled to determine the cause of the failure. When that is determined then some sort of corrective action can be implemented. To fix something you first have to understand the problem, what caused it and if it is an isolated incident or not. No matter how good a system is, it can fail. After spending a good deal of time on the phone and talking in person to the Rep. I feel that BRP is taking this serously and will take whatever action is needed. It's in everyones best interest.
