Dealer/CVT Rant!!

Why is it that none of the half dozen dealers in my area can keep a few simple CVT shim's instock when they have to be used to adjust the belts after 20 hrs?

I tried to order some off the internet (tuesday), and pay for 2nd day shipping to have them here for friday, but they too didn't have them instock.

Then, on wednesday after getting frustrated with the online company, I found a local dealer that would order them for me, and the local warehouse had them instock. Unfortunally I couldn't just will call them from the warehouse so they would have to ship them in. But, i was assured that they would be ordered up and they should have them thursday, worse case Friday.

I was relieved to hear this, i need to install them this weekend inorder to have my Teryx ready for next weekend trip.

Now, its friday, Call them up to make sure they came in, What do i hear... No i am sorry, according to UPS it won't be in until Tuesday!!!

Edit I saw your other post.

You should be able to ride with one of the stock shims in and still have fun this weekend. Guess there isn't much demand for clutch shims. At least you have 6 or so dealers to choose from. In my area there is 2.

Lol, thats how I have it now... aprox 5/8" deflection.. A little too tight and she squeals like a pig when I stop in gear.

I am just frustrated when its a normal part that every Teryx will need after aprox 20 hrs.
