I'd say the first thing you need to know is that you stole it! Then check everything like Mike said and every bolt and nut on the thing. The front suspension needs to be checked for loose nuts after every weekend outing.

Re: Just bought a revolt help!!!

Drain the gear box inspect the oil and change I use redline heavy duty shock proof gear oil
if you don't already have the breather system like we all have done make sure it is very full
I use a pump oil can that has a flex hose on it and check it after u get back from every ride it will pump the oil out through pressure gear box's are going to get expensive and hard to find
read up on transmission breather

Re: Just bought a revolt help!!!

Do these machines have a temp sensor I can tap on to so I can put a aftermarket gauge on it to read the temp at all times

Yes they have a water temp sensor. Its located between the intake runners on the water manifold. I wouldn't tap another gauge into the wiring though. Chances that the aftermarket gauge would read correctly are not good. All aftermarket electric gauges that I've seen come with the sensor so why not use it? That is what we do. 1/8" pipe thread sensor is easy to put in the left end of the water manifold or just drill and tap a hole some place else in the water line.

No that catch can will not work. You need a breather bottle. Moroso makes one and many other companies also have a breather bottle with a K&N style filter on the top with a drain on the bottom. The one that most of us use here have 2 inlets so the dry sump oil tank breather hose and the trans breather hose can be hooked to the same breather bottle. The stock Redline ECU turns the electric radiator fan on at 180 deg. So that is what they usually run at.

Re: Just bought a revolt help!!!

That one has 2 inlet hoses go towards the bottom and it has a cap on it right now but you can put a knn filter on the top and they would be a breather wouldn't that also drain back into the transmission ? Because how will the other one with a drain valve at the bottom drain back into the transmission could you explain I don't seem to understand

If you saw what we drain out of our breather bottles you would understand why we don't want it in our oil. It is mostly water that condenses from getting hot and cold. If the breather is working right you won't get hardly any oil up to the breather bottle that is mounted up as high as the oil cooler. I've seen guys use the bottom inlet bottles so it will drain back but you wouldn't want to mix the engine and gear oil also. If you don't mind the water in the oil or mixing the two together go for it. I get about a pint of watery fluid on a 4 day weekend out of mine.
