I went with a 2020 Outlander 570 XT picked it up yesterday. But now I have another question I can't find a clear answer in the manual. How long should I break it in before the first oil change? And do I need to do anything at that time other than change engine oil ?

I started adding the Schaeffers moly to my transmission when I did my first oil change and my trans shifts easier ever since

Early and often - never hurts, but does it help? Probably not. Today's engines with advanced oils, most everything else will wear and fail before the engine becomes the reason to park it behind the shed and leave it to your grand children to restore to something that rolls or to cart off to the landfill.

I have a 1983 XR350 that I cannot even buy a wheel spoke to replace a single broken spoke. I had to buy an entire wheel from a salvage yard in Florida. A $125 used wheel to get a dollar spoke, WTF?
