Vary RPM, use low under 20MPH, don't redline it and change all fluids at 25/hrs. I just took it easy..
Ditto. Allow a few hours for the rings to seat and belt to wear in (doesn't take long), then drive it normally.Don't hammer on it till you get about 4-5 hours on it. Then you can run it however you like. I prefer to do an engine oil change at about 10 hours, just to get the break in material out of it sooner. But Polaris says 25 hours.
I agree. Not wide open, not babying it, but cycle it through the regular rpm range........Short trips not letting the engine warm fully attribute mostly to this. but low load, excessive idling, and babying your machine also don't help.
Get your machine, drive it a half hour warming it up good check all your fluids again, and then drive it the way YOU WILL USE IT.
