Rx1

Just purchased a 2003 RX1 and just woundering if I should really know anything about the sled that I should watch out for. I am going to Maine with it and don't want to have any issues with it.

Does anyone have a RX1 and do you like it?

I remember reading about a few recalls by Yamaha for it (Minor adjustment stuff) Also the 2003 models don't save the hand warmer settings so they must be reset everytime...I did a ton of investigation before I got my sled and ended up going with a Viper instead, but the RX-1 was second on my list. I just didn't like the electric starter only reliability and letting go of the accelerator causes the sled to immediately slow down, no coasting feature....

Hey thanks for responding. I will check in to those things. I never talked to anyone that has one, and just woundering about stuff like that.

Our Sheriff's patrol has two of them, and they have to work hard to stay up with my Wildcat.
With the longer tracks on them though, they are a lot smoother on the whoops.

Have you ridden your RX-1 much? What are your thoughts? I'm looking at a pair of 04 RX-1's.

I just purchased a 2003 RX1 Mountain, and I would like to see if there are any other problems to look for immediately.

Also, with it being a new sled to me- what(if any) steps can I take right now to help make this sled run well? For example- should I run some additives through its first tanks with me? Grease certain areas?

The sled has 1385 miles on it right now with a new yamaha belt and dealer oil change.

Thanks alot!
