Hello, Everyone! We just took delivery of our new olive P-4. After owning several atvs, looking forward getting use to a side by side. Question that i have is, are any of you doing any sort of "break in" for the UTV?
Welcome Mr Electric.....I have the same machine in Olive. Hope to see some pictures of yours and looking forward to discussions on how you work or play with your purchase. We have a pretty informative group here so far.
Take it easy for the first 50 miles or so is what I did. Then I gradually started working it harder. It really seems to have loosened up after 100 miles so I am sure the mileage will increase. I changed the oil at 140 miles for the first time but most Honda mechanics I know would go a bit farther. The owners manual says at 100 miles. I always think the first oil change on new engine is critical. Welcome to the forum.
Reading through the owners manual I am surprised to see it only asks you to take it easy for the first day or 15 miles.
This seems a little light for a break in period but the engineers at Honda are a lot smarter than I am.
