My 2013 maverick Xrs will only pull about 7600 rpms under full throttle from a stop to full speed. When it was brand new it would pull around 7900-7950 which was a big difference in power! Right from when it was brand new I ran it wide open lots as and on and off the throttle lots as I was more worried about breaking in the motor then breaking in the belt. :big smile: I was running in lots of snow so it is hard going. I also have a bit of a howl noise that just developed coming from my belt when just barely moving. Could it be a belt issue already?I only have about 100 miles on it now sorry for all the questions as this is my first side by side so it's all new to me.
