    Engine has a bad miss in it until temperature reaches around 150 is this a common problem with the x2?

    There is a speed limiter until the blue temp light goes out and then the engine returns to idle.

    Funny. I don’t spend every waking hour worrying about or working on my sxs. Just asked a question. Problem wasn’t happening all the time, went from a 12 rhino with no issues to a x2 twin. Didn’t know you had to be a certified mechanic to ask a question here....

    Danny you took that wrong. No one was being rude. Your title is "engine missing". So the first thought is where did it go?:)

    My bad... it was grill night yesterday....over indulged if you know what I mean. On a serious note it’s never the the same warm up period each time, it actually took longer in 70 degrees then 40....

    I was messing around on the Yamaha site and was wondering about this warm up light. I looked and apparently its blue for warm up and red for overheat. Kind of a cool feature. Makes sure the engine is up to temp before you stand on it. Its always a hard thing for me :)

    I wonder if it is strictly based off the engine coolant temp reaching a certain point, or if there’s more to it than that..? I could have used it on my Ranger in the winter when I was plowing. I would start it up and let it idle for a few, but I guess I never knew before I laid the coals to it and put it to work.

    It was 72 this past Saturday & the light went it in less then 10 seconds, almost the same temperature a week before that and I waited 3 to 5 minutes

    Almost makes it seem like there is a wonky sensor in the mix or something. Seems like it should be fairly consistent.

    I’m going to keep track of the temperature & the time it takes for the light to go off....

    Is changing the oil on the x2 the same as the x4? I only seen one video on YouTube & it was the x4....
