New Outlander L 500 Owner

I splurged and picked up a new 2015 Outlander 500 L yesterday after never owning an atv but having driven a few in the past. A lot of work buddies ride trails on the weekends and I have a couple places to ride around home.

I looked at reviews for different brands and considered used vs new for a few days before coming to the conclusion that this was a good buy for $6499 (local dealer gave $500 off) plus the 5 year warranty.

My initial concerns after picking it up yesterday evening was insurance and maintenance. I added full coverage insurance today but as for maintenance goes I’m not sure yet how I’ll handle it. The guys at the dealership (which is over an hour away from me) was stressing about how to ride gentle during the 10 hour break in period, to stay in Low when driving under 15 and up hills, to use High for over 15 on straights, then bring it all the way back down to them for an expensive 24 hour turn around maintenance… I just don’t see this happening for every maintenance because of the long drive and I’m sure it’s well over priced; so what has everyone else done for their initial break in period and routine maintenance?

I’m reading in the booklet that the first 10 hour maintenance sounds pretty straight forward about checking everything and changing the oil but I’m not sure yet about the part of "Check valve clearance and adjust if needed." Are these all things I can do myself?

Anyone else already broken in this model and have any pointers or information that I may need to know, or have any issues with the quad so far?
