WFO.....500 miles and running strong as ****. Last week we were in Glamis. I spanked RZR xp's all weekend long, and even spanked other Mavricks.
BTW...Stock tires air'd down to 6 psi, and this thing is eff'n awesome in the dunes. She even crused right up China wall. (pics are at Olds)

My dealer told me to "just run it". Given that it has a CVT transmission, I think it makes sense to run it like normal as long as the RPM's do not stay stationary for too long. They also mentioned that the dash display will tell me that the break-in period is complete.

I unloaded it, let her warm up then ran it down the snowy lease roads. Had a blast, got stuck a couple times in the field but the snow is still deep in them.
Sure looks a lot warmer at the dunes haha

Just think of the dunes like tan snow, but warmer
