Hello Folks - newbie here with my first post so go easy on me. I picked up a Buck 400 in May 2020 direct from Massimo when they were doing a closeout sale on the 400 models. I read the reviews and was skeptical.
We live in a golf cart community we do not plan any off roading - just some very mild work tasks like hauling firewood / brush etc. Honestly, all we do is cruise around our neighborhood roads. I pulled the trigger b/c the price was cheaper than a 2WD lifted golf cart and the Buck had way more features.
We have a few steep hills and after about 20 - 30 minutes of cruising, my check engine light comes on. It only happens when we are going up or down one of the hills . We head straight home and things seem fine the next day. Light never comes on unless we tackle multiple hills during one ride.
Should I be worried?
PS - Unit is 4 months old and has 258 miles on it - barely broken in. I've yet to go full throttle on a flat or up a hill.

We just bought a 2014 Massimo 1100 with only 27 drive hours on it. We took it out a couple of times and then the check engine light came on. We took it to an authorized massimo shop and they can't figure out what's wrong. Any advice?! We are in Utah.

Hello, just got my first sxs. 2019 Polaris RZR 570 EPS. Will be using for dirt roads, wooded trails and taking it easy on sand dunes.
Wanted some opinions on how I'm breaking it in. It had 2.5 miles on it already from the dealership.
First day, took it out for 9 miles on dirt roads going between 20 and 40 MPH in high. Never slamming the pedal. Second day same thing but for 30 miles, lots of stopping for cross roads.
What else should I do? Been following the manual best I can. Do I need to run it in low gear some? Is 30-40 mph considered high speed?
TWO SEATS OR FOUR, THERE’S A TALON THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU.
If life is better side-by-side, how do you make it better than ever? For 2020, we’ve doubled down on our Talon line with two more exciting new models—the Honda Talon 1000X-4 and Talon 1000X-4 FOX Live Valve. For starters, they add a second pair of seats, so now you can double your off-road fun and share it with even more lucky passengers. And if you want a two-seater, don’t worry—our revolutionary Talon 1000R and Talon 1000X announced last year are ready to roost.
