New Owners, I would like to use this thread to give you some of the most important information about your Slingshot in my opinion. Most information presented is in your owners manual. I will also present tools used in performing maintenance. I encourage you to read the Owners Manual. It is filled with very good information and written in a clear easy to understand way. It is laid out well with a correct flow of information. In the back you will find an index that will lead you directly to the subject information you seek. For the folks that want to perform their own maintenance, you must use products that meet the specifications of the Polaris Products. You will find that Polaris suggest you use Polaris Products, and take your Slingshot to a dealer, but they also indicate if you have the skills you can perform the maintenance, but must maintain specs condition for the maintenance. The owners manual has many references to safety while performing maintenance, they indicate the level of danger for a procedure for maintenance. Wear protective eye wear, cock wheels when lifting your Slingshot, and all safety steps. Think safety for yourself and the people helping and are around you when you work. If you are not familiar with jacks and raising a vehicle, you should seek knowledgeable help before doing it. Most maintenance can be performed without raising the vehicle. Oil and Filter Change is the most popular Maintenance procedure that most new owners want to do themselves. I have a video that will show this procedure and doing it without raising the Slingshot. It is a thread on this Page. There is a maintenance schedule in the Owners Manual that will give all maintenance schedules for all maintenance for the Slingshot. When you perform you own maintenance you must check all scheduled items on the list that are required for the scheduled time. When you do your own maintenance you are responsible for all maintenance items. When you take it to the dealer, they have the responsibility. It is more satisfying as an owner to learn the procedures to perform you own maintenance and it is much easier for your time and not having to take to dealer and waiting to be completed. Your first major Maintenance that must be performed is the 500 mile oil and filter change. So my advice is come to this thread and I will try to give you information that will speed up learning about your Slingshot. There are many other members on this forum that are very knowledgeable, if you do not find an answer to a question you have about an issue on my section Page, please go to appropriate area and post your concerns and many folks will come to your aid.
Here is a link for the 2015 and 2017 Slingshot Owners Manual for access quickly. If anyone can give me a PDF Link, I will place here for other years. I could only find these issues online.
New Owners, I know the feeling you had when you took possession of the keys. Here is a video of our First Slingshot Pickup and drive for the first time. I still remember the feeling, and I have it captured.
