Bought a blue '17 Zforce 800 EX EPS this week.  Pick it up Saturday.  Knew I shoulda sold some other toys first, but I couldn't help myself.  I did end up buying the extended warranty, so I'll have 5 years warranty and it wasn't all that expensive. 

Been doing some lurking on here.  So, the obvious first fix is the air filter.  What else should I be concerned with off right away?

I'd pick up a Thermosensor, and a few oil filters while you're there.  I grabbed a hand full of push pins , just in case. Only needed one so far but nice to have. Tire plug kit (Walmart) is probably cheaper. 
Mine came with the bottom half windshield, may want to ask about that.
Oh, if you're getting a filter make sure you get the cleaner and spray oil for it as well. 
I got some sticky weather strip foam to make a gasket in my glove box.
Mini compressor.
I ordered my LEDs from eBay, like $18 for the front two, and now the 32" one is I think under $30.

Know all about the UNI filters/oiling and whatnot.  Run them on pretty much all my toys.  Push-pins - got a bunch already.  Mini compressor - got one of those, too.  Oil filters, I'll probably wait on.  Tell me more about this thermosensor?  Is this a switch to turn on the fans?  Known to fail?

Thanks

Get the Uni on it before any riding. Yeah the thermoswitch is for the fan...and the new ones are better then the old ones so that's up to you. I have an old one and it's still working OK but most others have failed. Cheap enough to have one on hand.

Welp, she's home!  The Grim Reapers look nice.  Glad I had them swap 'em over.

Looks good. The Reapers are a great tire..for about anything. I think you will be happy. I sure am.

Love the Grim Reapers.  Nicely priced, too.  They were on my Prowler, so had the dealer swap the tires for me. 

On a side note, super disappointed there's no winch control on the dash.  Have to plug in the handheld unit for it to work.  Never noticed that until I went to load it up.

An easy fix though...or like some of us did..a Harbor Freight wireless wench remote.

$15 bucks on ebay will get you a good waterproof wireless remote.
I've got a pile of them on my desk, but cheaper & quicker for you to buy directly
If it has Pistons or Tits you will encounter problems.

Also Ron keep an eye on your water pump. Mine started leaking a couple of weeks before the Haspin ride. Took 2 weeks to get the right parts in,one reason we canceled. I didn't have anything to ride! Good choice going with the EPS, it would have been nice to have at Coyote Run!! I'll see you on BN!
