Interesting.  But this also illustrates the frustrating aspect of all this.  We've been asking Polaris about this for 6 months.  As dealers you'd think we'd be able to get a straight answer instead of conflicting stories.  I hope it isn't another stalling tactic on the part of Polaris.

Polaris simply wants all production capacity going
into the SxS market. Parts is where the money is
to be made in this business. As long as parts are
on the shelves, they could care less about a cheap
full assembly at this point, especially since the bike
is no longer on their books. Last time I was up to
our local super store dealer, I was told that as the
Sportsmans get bigger, less are sold. They are at a
point that special deals are being made on pricing so
they can avoid a trade. Too much trade inventory in
the back lot. And speaking of the trade lot, I seen
very few sport bikes !! They don't want them !!

Polaris had told us that the assembly would be available 7/2/15. 
As soon as 7/2 came along they changed availability back to "supply chain delay"...  So, now we get to start this whole roller-coaster ride again.  [fighting0095]
Not to mention they bumped the price from $349 to $599 if the assembly ever gets off of perma-stall. 

I will definitely be having a con-fab with the parts and accessories division at the dealer meeting.

This just makes me lean further into building my own
from WRX parts. I did find another beater on craigs
list from a 500 Outlaw. $250 and covered in mud.
Damn expensive mud.....

I just did a price comparison for a custom build.

From rockauto.com I can get a complete rear wheel
hub assembly (dual bearings) for a Suburu WRX for
$52 plus shipping (one side).....The Polaris parts,
hub, bearing, and bearing carrier, to make the same
unit comes to $182......WRX rear CV Shaft assemblies
are 1/2 the cost of OEM Polaris, and 1/3 the cost if
the WRX assemblies are re-manufactured......Note, the
WRX hub assemblies are 1040 machined steel.

This winter, I will have some fun getting creative....

Sounds like we need to learn how to make these work on the outlaws....

Agreed.  I love the Outlaw IRS.  It along with the 700xx were the only two IRS pure sport quads, and were a blessing for those of us with bad backs.  Unfortunately, now that neither are made any more, I don't really want to give up riding because the manufacturer is apathetic about keeping parts in stock.  I'm all for an alternative that takes Polaris and their lack of motivation out of the equation.  I would be really interested in seeing what an experienced fabricator can come up with that will not only keep us on the trail, but maybe improve the durability along the way.

Talked with the head of parts at Polaris.  The assembly should be available the first week of October... Nothing like waiting a year for parts.

Polaris was trying to work with us on a "Plan-B" to help get you (us) guys rear axle assemblies, but there was another wrinkle.  Some parts were substituted and you can no longer get all of the parts to build a rear axle assembly yourself without re-using your old disc brake-side hub.  The disc brake-side hub is no longer available separately.  In order to get it, you have to purchase the whole rear axle assembly kit.  Considering what Polaris was charging for the hub to begin with, it is no surprise.  However, it still means that this hub is no longer a separately serviceable part.

I see Partzilla updated the price to $599, and Partsland
is still showing $359, and that's the figure that shows up
in your cart !!!  It's not like Partsland to stay up on things
like that. They always sell high. They don't discount.

I'm guessing that Partsland hasn't updated their price lists yet, unless they plan on selling them at a loss.  In which case we may have to start getting them from Partsland instead of directly from Polaris. :-)

I talked to Partsland late this afternoon. And your right,

$600 bucks and on supply chain delay.

It was $280 for the disc brake hub.  Now that it is only available in the full rear axle assembly, $600.

I would not have thought Amazon . com as being a
parts vender but, I've been chasing my tail trying to
find a specific Polaris brake rotor disc for my build
without being taking to the cleaners. RaceDriven had
what I was looking for, and Amazon had it listed $11
cheaper then others plus free shipping. I guess maybe
I'll check there before others  !!!
