Polaris admits error, only after my Dealer fought them for two weeks. Service Manager Madison would not accept anything else. With all the bad stories about Dealers on here, looks like I am lucky to have Ritchie Brothers Polaris in Maryville, TN. All parts and labor covered, a longer shoulder bolt has been specified by Polaris.
If you have not checked to make sure that your Brutus has bolt shoulder contact in the counter bore, expect a failure there. It's easy to check, remove the bolt, verify that the bolt shoulder is longer than the through hole in the mounting bracket.
I will post the new bolt part number when I get it. I hope this post saves some of the members the headache I have been thru...
