PERIODIC MAINTENANCE CHART
Periodic Maintenance Overview
Inspection, adjustment and lubrication of important components are explained in the periodic maintenance chart.
Inspect, clean, lubricate, adjust and replace parts as necessary. When inspection reveals the need for replacement
parts, use genuine Pure Polaris parts available from your Polaris dealer.
NOTE: Service and adjustments are critical. If you're not familiar with safe service and adjustment
procedures, have a qualified dealer perform these operations.
Maintenance intervals in the following chart are based upon average riding conditions and an average vehicle speed of
approximately 10 miles per hour. Vehicles subjected to severe use must be inspected and serviced more frequently.
Severe Use Definition
• Frequent immersion in mud, water or sand
• Racing or race-style high RPM use
• Prolonged low speed, heavy load operation
• Extended idle
• Short trip cold weather operation
Pay special attention to the oil level. A rise in oil level during cold weather can indicate contaminants collecting in the
oil sump or crankcase. Change oil immediately if the oil level begins to rise. Monitor the oil level, and if it continues to
rise, discontinue use and determine the cause or see your dealer.
The break-in period consists of the first 25 hours of operation. Careful treatment of a new engine and drive
components will result in more efficient performance and longer life for these components.
• Drive vehicle slowly at first while varying the throttle position. Do not operate at sustained idle.
• Perform regular checks on fluid levels and other areas outlined on the daily pre-ride inspection checklist.
• Change both the engine oil and filter after 25 hours or one month.
• See "Owner's Manual" for additional break-in information.
