Riot Technical Issues

I just purchased a new Riot Thursday. Unfortunately, I have encountered several problems within the first (and only) hour of the break-in.

1. It will no longer start. It has power to the lights, fuel pump, etc... (maybe a brake sensor or starter problem)
2. Gear shifter will not stay in forward gear. Locking pin does not work properly.

I purchased it from a dealer in Oregon and I live in southern California so bringing it back to the selling dealer is not an option.

I do not know if anyone has encountered these problems. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Re: Riot Technical Issues

If the unit is new please contact the factory. They will take care of you.

Re: Riot Technical Issues

I appreciate everybody's feedback. I spoke with Jared at Redline and he was very helpfull. The starting problem is the brake sensor. I bypassed it and it starts right up (without a foot on the brake). Redline will be sending out the parts for me to replace them (including gear handle).

I also have a small hole in my right rear CV Boot. Redline is recommending replacing both axels since there was a problem with the splines on some of the early Riots. So I will be doing that as well (or if I can't, bringing it to a dealer). There's a good chance I may post a message asking if anyone has instructions when the time comes. I will most likely wait to replace the axles until after the Thanksgiving trip to Dumont, incase there is any setbacks replacing them.

A little bit of a rocky start, but I appreciate that Redline stands behind their product.

Hopefully, I can post some nice photo's of this thing attacking the dunes.

Re: Riot Technical Issues

I'll drop in and say hello. I will be the one in the black Riot. It would be great to meet some other folks with Redlines.

If you are planning on riding it with the hole in the boot, cover it... youll be amazed how fast it grows and how dirty it can get your motor....

I got one like that and it left a mess....

If I were you I would put a plastic shopping bag around it and tape it at both ends.... it will save you some time on cleaning.... and at least try to leave the sand out.... even touhg somw how it always get everywhere.....
