Hi All

New to the forum. Just purchased a 09 XP550 w/ EPS. Haven't had to much time to give it a proper break in yet. But I did notice that I can start the ATV as long as it is in "P" or "N" According to the manual; I should also have to have the break engaged; but I don't need to on mine. Before I go complaining back to the dealer can anyone else verify your operation on this machine?

Thanks:tee:

I have an 09 XP550 also and it "will" start without holding the brake.

Ya mine is the same, The brake I think is only for safety, but think about it, wheres it going if it only starts in P or N?

Thanks guys. I stopped at the dealer on my way home tonight to confirm this also. And if the bike is in "R","L" or "H" it will also start if you pull in on the brake lever.
Cheers!

You never know what can happen when starting, I always start mine in park and hold the brakes. Welcome to the site!
