PERIODIC MAINTENANCE CHART
Any qualified repair shop or person may maintain, replace or repair the emission
control devices or systems on your vehicle. An authorized POLARIS dealer can
perform any service that may be necessary for your vehicle. POLARIS also
recommends POLARIS parts for emissions-related service, however equivalent
parts can be used.
It is a potential violation of the Clean Air Act if a part supplied by an aftermarket
parts manufacturer reduces the effectiveness of the vehicle's emission controls.
Tampering with emission controls is prohibited by federal law.
Owners are responsible for performing the scheduled maintenance identified in
this owner's manual.
Careful periodic maintenance will help keep your vehicle in the safest, most
reliable condition. 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, genuine POLARIS parts are
available from your POLARIS dealer. Equivalent parts may be used for
Service and adjustments are important for proper vehicle operation. If you're not
familiar with safe service and adjustment procedures, a qualified dealer can
perform these operations.
Vehicles subjected to heavy or severe use patterns 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
• Frequent short trip operation in cold weather (engine frequently does not
operate long enough to reach full operating temperature)
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. Your POLARIS dealer or other
authorized person can assist.
