I thought I would spend the two and a half weeks that I've been waiting for my replacement clutch cover gasket, which was shredded beyond belief from the factory ,doing things to this machine that people have suggested.
So far I have installed the rollover valve. Bent the float rod for the gas gauge. Siliconed the plastic wheel hub covers , which fall off as soon as you look at them.
Tightened all the beadlock bolts to 41 foot pounds, which were at 29 to 31 foot pounds.
Removed the primary spring.
Installed the badass belt.
Installed accessories including the Super ATV flip up windshield, fender flares from Mud Busters and the Tusk bed extender/tailgate.
Did I miss anything?

There is a way to bend the float rod so you get a more accurate reading on your gas gauge. I don't know if there's pictures floating around on here but there are on one of the Facebook groups. The Facebook group seems to have more comprehensive information on this machine.

First thing after break in is get the dynojet PV3 ecm tuner. Don’t bother with COPS or VFJ mail order ecm tuning. The windshield, metal roof and front mudflaps are a must for me also. Also take a look at your clutch weights for wear.

Why this tuner vs others? I am not tuned yet and was about to pull the trigger on vfj

Why a badass belt vs oem?
My oem belt was at the minimum spec to change out. And the badass belt claims to be a better compound, and takes the heat better, so I tried it this time. And it’s cheaper than the kawi belt. I’ll see if I get more than 850 miles on it like the kawi belt. The kawi belt still works fine, and is in good shape. It just got to thin on the top. So I lost some top end speed. And with the new flash, I wanted everything to be at its best with the clutch weights and belt. I kept the kawi belt for backup.

I wish I would have seen this list before I rode this weekend and lost a wheel hub cover. I would also add you should check your adjustment of the shifter link and make sure it's back all the way so you don't get the popping out of gear problem.

I got the pv3 because I can flash the ecm myself. And can change the tunes as my krx gets upgraded. But the big reason is I don’t have to mail the ecm off to some asshole that has total control over my machine. If you decide to do an upgrade he doesn’t like, he can cut you off. I can flash back to stock on my own. With VFJ you have to wait on the mail if something acts up. Plus dynojet is supposed to be working on different tunes. Go look how many they have for the rzr guys. And if you want to get into the technical side, you can download the dynojet program, and build your own tune. Like I said, the main thing is I have control of my ecm. You literally plug it in and press a few buttons. Also if you have any issue you can get in touch with dynojet. And they can have you email your info, and look into it and email you back a fix if needed. I was leaning VFJ, but just didn’t like his style. I’m so glad I waited and found this pv3 about 2 weeks ago. Contact Craig to order and save a few bucks. My KRX runs great now with the pv3. Not the slow and rough acceleration when moving slow. And don’t even think about the COPS tune.

How much was the PV3 from Craig?

You don't have to wait for break in for the tuner. It would actually be better to break in with it since it runs it a little richer...lean af from the manui

That is likely true, but I don’t have the patience to not see what the tuner improved, and I still think a little break in can help.

Welp, I am a certified HD mechanic and can assure you we put them on brand new bikes with zero miles and there's a huge difference.

Well I guess the first thing I would add is the PM3 then. I’m just glad I didn’t get one of the mail in flash tunes.
