2013 550 limited. Only 1100 miles.
2nd owner didn't maintain it, barely used it.
Got a great deal on it, $3500 w new plow.
I've looked it over but looking for must do...
Some thoughts...

Wash thoroughly
Check tire pressure
Remove tires and check brake pads.
All boots look good. No leaks.
Change engine oil
Change differential fluid ?
Change transmission fluid?
Plug is probably from 2013 ... change?
Check coolant level.

Anything I'm missing?
Must have accessories?
My first cat, last atv was a grizz 660

Yes to all. But the transmission fluid is the engine oil. 1 in the same.

Use a ATV/Motorcyle oil only. Get a spark plug, Check your motor mounts too, mine are rubbing on the engine a little.

This is all standard stuff to check, otherwise it is a very solid machine.
