Greetings all. New to this forum, seems like the Textron area is pretty quiet but I’ll give it a try anyway. I bought a 2017 Stampede 4 XTR last year, new but had been sitting on the lot here in Alaska. Been pretty happy with it so far (other than oil filter access) but it’s started having an intermittent problem recently where the check engine light will flash and the throttle pedal won’t respond properly. Both times I was still able to drive, but would top out at about 1/4-1/3 throttle. The first time it did it, I tried clearing the codes and they came back. But 20 minutes later I cleared and it’s been fine. Yesterday it happened again, and I cleared them on the first try and it was fine. Electrical connections all look fine. The code is a P2138 , electronic throttle out of range. Anyone else seen this?
Ive only got about 200 miles on the machine, and I haven’t been thrashing it
on a side note, I’m considering a lift kit if anyone knows a good source as the long wheelbase definitely has some limitations in rough terrain? And a front locking diff. It seems like there isn’t a lot of aftermarket support for these machines, which is a shame as it’s a pretty good setup. I really like the low range, and the engine braking. Have Gone up and down some pretty long and steep mountain grades.

New-to-me 2012 CC Volunteer throttle cable broke during the wicked cold snap we had a few weeks ago (upstate NY). It was already a bit sticky, but at least it was usable.
Is it possible to replace it myself, or must I pay to have it hauled 50 miles to the nearest shop? I can access both ends, but the majority of it is pretty buried from the top and underneath.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Hi Joyner Gang
New to the Joyner group. I'm making long travel for the 1100 Sand viper. I'm trying to make something that will work as well or even better than the RZR Rino etc. At this time the front has 14" travel rear has 16" of travel. Still developing the suspension. comets are welcome. Ask questions and I will get back to the Forum
