    Take Top off or Not?

    Wonder if some have just driven without taking the top off ?
    I realize you should probably do it to winterize or change oil BUT have many of you just ridden the Spark ??

    I know I didn,t strip down my Can Am Spyders for weeks after I started riding them and
    Everything was fine.

    My dealer did warn of taking the top off to many times because of the Seal???

    I'd willing to bet 98% of spark owners never take the top off (themselves).

    Most people just ride them without worrying about those sort of things.

    im taking it off to check clamps and plugs just to confirm its all ok. more of piece of mind for myself. rather find it now.. it probably wouldnt hurt anything to ride it a few times first but defiantly inspect by end or break in period.

    I got everything BUT the electrical harness does NOT want to come off?
    I pull red tab forward- then press the small red nipple and try to separate but Nothing?
    I,m not going to break wires trying to do it.

    I,m going to leave it on and have the dealer unplug the connector in the Fall and then I will take the top off, remove battery, Change oil , winterize- Then put top on for winter storage.
    Going to be 75-80 a few days this next week!!!!!!
