Do's and Don'ts for New Roger Voyager Engines and Vehicles

New Product Inspection:

  1. Inspect Closely: Carefully inspect your new vehicle during the first couple of rides and for the initial 30 to 90 days. Most manufacturing failures occur within this period.

  2. Torque Converter Cover: For go-karts with a lawn mower-style engine and a torque converter, always reinstall the torque converter cover after replacing the belt. Failure to do so can pose a serious safety hazard, especially regarding long hair getting caught.

  3. Gasoline Leak Check: Before every ride, inspect the vehicle for gasoline leaks. If you detect any, cease riding immediately and rectify the leak. Gasoline fumes are highly flammable and can lead to safety hazards.

  4. Oil Level Monitoring: If you notice a rising oil level, it may indicate a sticky float in the carb, causing gas to enter your oil. Stop riding immediately to prevent engine damage and potential fire hazards.

  5. Safe Starting Procedure: Always start your vehicle in neutral while seated in the driver's seat with your foot on the brake. Exercise caution when working on the vehicle to avoid accidental starts.

  6. Starter Key Usage: Release the starter key once the engine starts. Holding the key for extended periods can damage starters and starter clutches, not covered under warranty.

  7. Intermittent Starting: If experiencing starting issues, do not continuously hold the starter key for prolonged periods. Give a few seconds between tries to prevent damage to the starter, not covered under warranty.

  8. Shift Safely: Avoid shifting from forward to reverse or vice versa until the vehicle comes to a complete stop. Hard metal gears in the transmission can be damaged by this action, and such damage is not covered under warranty.

  9. Sunlight Exposure: Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, as it can damage paints and materials.

  10. Avoid Jumping: Do not attempt to jump your ATV, Buggy, or UTV, as they are not designed for this type of use.

  11. Avoid Water Submersion: Do not swamp your vehicle by riding it in deep water, submerging the engine and electrical components. These vehicles are not designed for such conditions.

  12. Break-in Period: During the break-in period, run your new engine or vehicle at 60% of full throttle maximum. Vary your speed to allow the engine to break in across a full spectrum of conditions. Running at full speed during the break-in period is not recommended.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure the safety, longevity, and optimal performance of your new Roger Voyager engine and vehicle.
