Kawasaki Engineer Interview

I recieved a call from Kellys Kawasaki today and was asked to bring my Teryx down so the Kawasaki engineers could check it out and ask some questions. I filled out a survey while they were checking out my ride. The survey covered suspension, engine and drive train, fit and finish, handling, what type of riding and how much, what terrain, and a lot more than I can think of now. they test drove the Rex and then we all met and talked about common things that other owners had brought up from around the country, about 50 people were interviewed. They said my belt deflection was good, I have just under 500 miles on mine (no mud time) and the said to check it again at 200 hours if nothing changes in performance. I have a few add ons, Dynatek, BS Sand front and rear seats,crow belts, moose center consol, ITP ss 108s, rear cage from Zoneworx, intercom system, and a small gps. I was the last one in AZ to interview and they were leaving to California in the morning.

I asked about how they would break in a Teryx, they said drive it hard, but just don't keep the RPMs maxed out for long periods of time till you get some hours on it and make sure you warm it up. One of the engineers said you could go longer than 20 hours between oil changes, but oil is cheeper than engines. Did any one else do the interview?
