    Their review talks about thicker seat foam. I wonder If that's a seat heat solver.

    Maybe helps a little, but I doubt it. The main part of the heat problem is the plastics behind the middle seat. Unless of course they covered it with something.

    After reading the review, sounds like all I need is shocks.

    From what I read in the UTV Action magazine my 2016 suits me just fine. I don't need no stinking computer to shift in and out of 4wd for me. I like to have a little control. That's 4 wheeling. I do like the switches, and shocks though. The thicker seat?, mines just fine. JMHO

    Tbh if the seat is a heat solver then it will most likely fit the 16 model. Other than the I-4wd, brake features and lighted switches any 16 could be made into a 17 LE. But no one wants the Honda bumper, skid plates, A-arm guards for the money. Any customer units i work on always have aftermarket ones instead.

    I know it's a longshot but in your opinion could mode memory be swapped?

    I'm not 100% sure how it operates. Some places have said its only after having put the machine into reverse that it remembemuch thars the mode. It's probably just in the programming on the ecm. If that is the case then it should be a simple swap to see if it works. In our diagnostic tester program there's a ecm update/flash option. We've never been able to use it yet, but maybe this could be a use for that feature. I cant see it being very much that would allow you to hold the mode.

    Alien Tech software is the real deal but to expensive just to play with roughly $15,000. to get setup in for class 8 truck tuning, it would be able to make the change you want if the user is capable.

    yes - you'll find plenty of info (and b****ing) about that. I'm one of them.
    Fortunately there are some fairly easy fixes but it's bizarre that Honda has not dealt with it properly.
    Search the site for Heat Shield and Bilge Fan.
    Once you get past that you'll be a lot happier. At least I was... Installed both heat shield and fan and it much better. And as a bonus turn the fan off in the winter for some welcome butt heat.
