Hi.

Anyone else who has problems with the throttle? When you go around 5000-6000rpm and release the throttle it's still hangs on in about 1-2 secs.. If so, what have you done to get this problem solved?

is RPM or is it throttle, it could be not back shifting fast enough when you let off.

Mine does the same, the throttle releases but the sled acts like it’s powered in cruise control for a few seconds. Seems to get worse the colder it is - have not identified a fix as of yet, any ideas welcome

Have you taken it to your dealer?

Hi guys I’m new to the forum. I too had this ghosting throttle issue as well as det codes coming up quite often. Took sled to dealer as well as contacted Polaris. New flash was installed at dealer. 400 miles later and the results are: no more det codes. Sled seems quite a bit stronger. Ghosting throttle gone. It does however seem to load up with fuel when coming to stops. So much that when shutting sled off at a break it will sometimes backfire on start up. I’ve reported my findings to Polaris and hopefully they will tweak flash a bit more. Want it to run like my wife’s 19 800 xc

Just got my '19 flashed as well, SSA-19-02. Had a small run tonight and seemed ok but need more seat time.

Was running like junk for a little ~30 hrs changed plugs and much better then flashed. Was told to swap in new plugs but haven't yet.

P.s outgoing plugs were fouled and black.
