Servicing my 08

This is my first Rhino and I would like to do the service on it myself. I am still in the "Break in' period. I know the first service should be done at 20hrs...What service are recommened? I was told (by some friends of mine who also have Rhino's) to have the valves adjusted and change the oil....Is this all? I would also like to know if i should do fluid change intervals by hours or miles? And I would like to use Synthetics in it, so what and when should I make that change?

Any info will be greatly appreciated.... JB

IMO there is no break in period... Just drive it like you stole it. That is the best way to break in a motor.

At 20 hours you should...

Clean the air filter
Change the oil and filter
Change the front diff oil
Change the rear final drive oil
Lube the zerks and the steering linkage

The book states to do a valve adjustment at 20 hours. I did as the book stated for my warranty... If I had to do it over again I would of saved my money.

I think this will help...
