Congrats and welcome! I also removed a bunch of the graphics on my gray one. Too flashy for me... Heading to Moab in 10 days to see how this machine does.

Went out for a break in and shake down. Did 50 miles, put about 4 heat cycles on it.

Was in a sea of RZR's. But did good, until the end when the speed sensor took a crap, speedo would go from zero to 75 and cause the governor to kick in, kept freaking out and throwing a P0500 error, gonna have to bring it in for warranty.

5pt harnesses, roof (need to figure out which one) are very first on the list. Then radios, ipad (lead nav), fire extinguishers.

What's the easiest way to remove the stickers from the plastics? Heat gun?

wife's hair blower does the trick for me...start at a corner, after initial heating of that area and then slowly pull while keeping the heat going...

They pulled right off mine without heat...But then I'm not in the frozen tundra like Dean...LOL.

Congrats on the new ride Novaman.

I know your intentions to race in a stock class with it...keep us posted on the build and first race.
Sucks about the ECU problem...doesn't sound too difficult to fix though. Get all the gremlins done now..then walk away from those stock XP's.

Just an FYI I was told that Score is getting rid of the Sportsman UTV class, and replacing it with a Pro “Stock Production” class. The goal is to reduce costs substantially, and to really show the performance of these stock machines.

Wyane Matlock who is a Baja Legend and multiple Score Champion on quads & UTV’s, was/is advising Score on this class. Wyane is currently a Facotry RZR driver in the Turbo Production class. Thing about it, is there is not as much “Production” left in the class.

This new class will allow for items like factory fuel tanks, factory suspension, working doors with secondary latches. From what it sounds like only Safety items like cages, seatbelts, window nets etc.. would be required.

I think this class would be s great class for the WildcatXX to shine in.

Get the oil filter changed as soon as possible. Don't wait until the end of the break in. It is probably already clogged with assembly lube and bypassing. Someone on here cut theirs open and found it full of goo. I did the same to mine after the first couple hours and it looked like this....

Mine is still on my bench waiting to get cut open.
Interesting though- mine was a larger WIX from the factory.

I did mine at 100 miles. I will do it again at 500.
