    Default Blue on Black: 2016 Mojo Surf Edition

    At the beginning of the season, I took ownership of a beautiful 2016 Moomba Mojo with the Raptor 400. I’ve spent innumerable hours on this forum reading and learning. I probably would not have pulled the trigger on the Mojo before coming across the wealth of advice and general community engagement that is this forum, so thank you to everyone who is such an active contributor.

    In an effort to share some of my own learned advice, and just share the evolution of my new “mistress”, I thought I would document some of the following:

    Picking up: Bone stock 2016 Moomba Mojo Surf Edition.

    The snap-in rubber floors flew out during the drive bringing her home, so step one was a full GatorStep installation:

    Limited on file upload per post, so here is more of the GatorStep after installation:

    While cleaning and applying GatorStep (very easy process, just take your time) I went ahead and added sound dampening to the floor and V-drive cover. Very worth it IMO!

    In addition to some of these cosmetic enhancements, I'm highly intentional about engine/transmission/v-Drive maintenance. Take care of your machine, and it will take care of you forever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUWVYarVKAg

    Conducted and oil, oil filter, V-drive, transmission, and coolant fluid change(s) at the start of the season. Made the chart below (can't figure out how to upload PDFs?) which now hangs in my garage along with similar cheat sheets for other vehicles/engines.

    Also swapped out the flame arrestor, and I was blown away at the difference between the new and old! FEA2B66F-4EB6-4461-BFB1-793EA4175997.jpg

    Also ordered and installed a FAE. This is not an easy process but if you go slow, follow instructions, and "practice" the installation (before doing it with the sealant) it will go smoothly. As the instructions say, be very liberal in your application of the 5200 sealant. It should look messy right after you finish and you can easily clean up later.

    I also purchased the upgraded baffle, which is a serious pain to remove. That said, one *major* suggestion/tip/trick for removing the stock baffle: Take a wire coat hanger, bent it, and pushed it up between the stock baffle and rubber exhaust rubbing, with the straw sprayer of WD40 in between, (see picture below). Spray some WD40 once inserted. I did this in 3-4 areas working my way around the baffle and it slide right off like butter.

    Looks like a lot of love went into that! I really like the look of the gator step you put in. That is on our list, but the carpet was in really good shape when we took ownership of our 2016 two years ago. Maybe in a year or two it will be time.

    Right on, we are normally in Turkey Creek or the Salt Peter Bluff area down past Choto. Sometimes we will ride over towards Louisville and Poland creek, but not too much this season. Our SA is silver and white
