The initial engine oil change should take place at 25 hours. Engine oil should be changed every 50 hours/6 months as part of regular maintenance. 


We recommend using Intimidator SYN5W-40. 


For a full maintenance schedule and how to change the oil refer to the owner's manual. 

Properly breaking in your machine’s engine is the single most important maintenance action relating to longevity and performance. By taking the proper break-in steps, you will set up your engine for a lifetime of reliable operation.

Operate the vehicle at various throttle levels. Do not use the same throttle level for the entire break-in period.

During the first 5 hours, operate the engine at varying throttle levels, but do not increase the throttle past ¾ power for any extended period.

Between 5 and 20 hours, operate the engine throttle normally, but do not maintain high throttle for any extended length of time.

After the first oil change, operate the throttle normally and freely. 


Please refer to the owner's manual for other maintenance and service information. 

The initial oil change should happen after the 20-hour break-in. Engine oil should be changed every 50 hours/6 months as part of regularly scheduled maintenance. 


We recommend using Intimidator SYN 5W-40. 


For a full maintenance schedule and how to change the oil refer to the owner's manual. 

The primary reason is the radiator clamps. Check your radiator clamps, if the clamps are blue, they need to be replaced. You can contact your local dealer to order new style radiator clamps. 

The fuse is located behind the display panel. You will have to pull the display panel out to access the 3-amp fuse. 

If your UTV is equipped with a turn signal kit, more than likely, the relay in that kit has failed. You will need to contact your local dealer to order a replacement part. If your UTV is not equipped with a turn signal kit, it is possible it could be blown bulb, blown fuse, relay failure, or a headlight switch failure. 

You can find this by locating the tire pressure sticker inside the bed of your UTV. Tire pressure varies depending on several conditions such as weight and model. 

We recommend taking the unit to a certified Intimidator dealer. The dealer should apply F26 compound adhesive to secure panel firmly. 

Use air when possible, blowing air inside the machine out. Do not spray the radiator with a high-pressure hose as it can damage the fins. 

While observing all safety measures in your owner's manual, start the engine and let it run for 2-3 minutes. Shut the engine off and pull the dipstick by twisting the dipstick (located on the passenger side of the engine) counterclockwise. Wipe off oil and replace the dipstick, screwing dipstick clockwise all the way back down. Finally, remove the dipstick again to get the final reading. 

For all models, we recommend DOT 3 and to fill to the level between MIN and MAX marks.
