Before you ride, perform the pre-ride inspection as described in the Owner’s Manual. Read, understand and follow all the instructions, warnings and safety precautions in the Owner's Manual and on all product labels. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death. 

1. Visually inspect the vehicle, looking for debris, loose fasteners, leaks and worn components that may impair the vehicle’s operation. Pay particular attention to the radiator area for the accumulation of debris, which can cause the engine to overheat, and clean any debris that is found.

2. Check the condition of the tires, looking for any sign of punctures or damage, and inspect the tread depth. Also check the tire pressures and verify that they are set to specification. 

3. Ensure the rim is not cracked or bent and verify proper lug torque. Steel Wheels should be torqued to 60 ft-lbs (81 Nm), and Aluminum Wheels should be torqued to120 ft-lbs (163 Nm).

4. Inspect the front and rear suspension for leaks, debris and damage. 

5. Move to the brake pads and rotors, looking for corrosion, nicks and burrs.

6. Ensure the vehicle is on a flat level surface to inspect the fluid levels. 

7. Turn the two quarter turn latches on the hood and slide it forward to remove.

8. Inspect the coolant level in the overflow bottle and add coolant as needed. 

9. Inspect the windshield washer fluid level, if equipped.

10. Realign the hood retention tabs and secure the two quarter turn latches.

11. Inspect the brake fluid reservoir in the driver’s side front wheel well for proper fluid level and add fluid as needed. 

12. Move to the rear to inspect the air filter, ensuring it is properly installed. Ensure the airbox cover is secured and fastened. Note: Air filter removal is not needed for visual inspection.

13. Clean the area around the dipstick.

14. Remove the oil dipstick and wipe with a clean shop towel.

15. Reinstall the oil dipstick fully and remove it again to inspect the oil level. 

16. Ensure the oil level is between the min and max marks on the dipstick and reinstall the oil dipstick. Do not overfill.

17. Verify proper operation of doors, if equipped.

18. Check the condition and function of the seat belts. Always wear a seatbelt when riding. The vehicle will limit speed if the driver’s seat belt buckle is not latched.

  • Inspect the full length of the seat belts for cuts, wear, fraying, dirt, debris or stiffness.
  • Test the buckle and latch for proper operation.

19. Turn the key ON and inspect the fuel level, ensuring there is enough for your trip.

20. Verify proper operation of the headlights, taillights and brake lights.

21. Verify proper operation of the horn, if equipped. 

22. Check the steering system for smooth operation from full left to full right.

23. Verify proper brake and accelerator pedal movement, taking note of any binding or sticking.

24. Inspect proper operation of the parking brake.

25. Start the engine and verify there are no warning lights illuminated.

26. Lastly, always practice safe riding by wearing the required safety gear listed in your Owner’s Manual.
