Front and Rear Brake. Check brake action. Check pucks to see that they are not over worn. There should be visible brake material on both sides of the brake disc. See Section 6.
Fuel Tank. Check fuel level. Fill as necessary. Use super unleaded for altitudes above 10,000 ft.
Engine Oil. The engine holds .6 qt. of SAE10W30/40 motor oil. Fill to the dipstick “full” line. NOTICE There is no oil in the engine at the time of shipment; you MUST add oil prior to first startup of the engine.
Miter Box and Transmission. They are filled at the factory and need not be checked at the start. The miter box should have 2.5 oz. of EP 80W90 gear lube oil. The transmission takes 6 oz. of EP 80W90 gear lube oil. The transmission has a fill to plug near the bottom of the transmission( shown on page 46). There is no fill level for the miter box. Over filling of either the miter box or transmission will result in leakage.
Throttle. Check for proper throttle cable operation. Look for smooth response to twist action.
Wheels and Tires. Check Tire pressure. Check wheels and tires for wear and damage.
Fittings and Fasteners. Check all fittings and fasteners.
Drive Chains. Check chains for tension and lubrication. Adjust tension for 1/2” – 3/4” deflection at mid point.
Engine Manual. Read your engine manual completely and follow all instructions.
