Little nervous

Hey guys, I'm sure as a newbie I'm driving you all nuts by now. Question, I'm looking to go pick up an 850 Outlander max North edition on Monday. My concerns have to do with the heat off these machines, will I even be able to enjoy it this summer? I'm not a mud runner, just a casual trail rider. Is there anything I can have the dealer do to help with the heat, before I pick it up? Anything else i should have dealer add, I'm close to the dealer, so if it takes a couple extra days to get it ready I'm fine with that.
Thank you all for taking the time to address my concerns.

What are you worried about? Only time you'll have issues with heat are if the radiator is clogged with mud or if you live in a very hot area which I assume you do not if you're ordering a north edition.

New machines are reportedly running borderline lean, which is not only dangerous for the engine in the long run, but the extra heat is melting plastic parts all around the pipes. And it becomes worse if you add even the Yoshi accessory slip-on with the spark arrestor in place, which supposedly doesn't need tuning, but it really does, according to this forum. I definitely plan on a slip-on (debating which one), so will bite the bullet and either install a fuel controller or do an ECU tune. I'm leaning on the former, to avoid messing with the ECU, especially during warranty, since I'll choose the 2-yr warranty. I'll also add header wrap, and maybe even insulation on the known panels to melt. Better safe than sorry, in this case. Hopefully fuel range will still be adequate after the fuel controller. Good luck.

I have a yoshi and got a monster FI tune. Ive only taken it for 1 30mile ride. I am planning a ride this weekend. Will reply back with more info when I can.


I just installed the snorkel too. This adds (I had already added) the under exhaust header shield (comes on the XMR). I also put a bunch of heat tape/mat on the inside of both cowlings, and on the CVT intake and exhaust snorkel parts. I slightly bent the front of the left header heat shield out so it could suck just a little bit more air in....

I ride in the Utah desert on a 650 max in 95 degree heat all summer on sand and mud flats. Just kick the hot leg out, your head down, press the throttle! The breeze is fantastic! 😀
