The power plugs in an 08 is a Powerlet. They hold much better but not many things have the proper connection, unless you change them. You can simply get an adapter though.

Yes, they rattle. Just crank the stereo and test the throttle and it will go away.

Unsolicited, and probably unwanted, but hey,,,,,
1. Add lower deflectors, good for cold, great for heat, let them sit for 12 hours before use & trust the 3M tape. Good Luck on the wait. Look around on eBay.
2. Don't trust your kickstand, check it twice. No switch or positive down position, but it is designed to retract if you touch it down while in motion
3. Trust your tip over (TO) points, IF YOU HAVE THEM, use them, instead of a foot or ankle to catch a falling vision. GET your feet up quick when you move from a stop, TOs run on ankle blood.
4. Place a foot on your floorboard and jiggle the bike while gassing up, and take your time. It takes a bit to fill both tanks.
5. Replace your horn or get loud pipes, this thing is fast and nimble, but cagers attack it for no reason. Jealous or hypnotized, who knows, but they steer right toward you.
6. Don't ever take off the trunk unless you are OK storing it forever. Rides almost like a different bike without it.
7. Stay off your front brakes below 5 mph, and pay attention in parking lots. The fuel tanks are forward and low: great for the twisties, but takes some getting used to.
8. If you remove the trunk or drop test the TOs you are honor bound to tell us. It makes those of us who have tested them more than once feel better ( so I hear).
9. If you take any of the above advice and it turns out badly, blame yourself, I am not to be trusted.
10. Make sure you lube any mechanical control points routinely, but do not oil cables, it tears up the interior Teflon
11. Once you have leaned that thing as far as you think is safe in a sweeper, keep going if you haven't heard the floorboards scrape. It's lean angle is just ridiculous for a 900+ lb bike
12. Practice using our Forum Search feature. It works wells, saves tons of repetition, and avoids snarky-smart-Alec answers like I sometimes offer.

Wonderful video thank you. I have seen the front blade removed once on the day I bought my vision in 2010. I have not adjusted my mirrors from day 1 because I did not want to risk damaging them. How stiff to move should they be?

I have never moved mine either. The previous owner put convex mirrors on the stock mirrors for a better view. They work well, but I wish they were bigger.

Welcome aboard.

I have a USB and heated gear powerlet adapters. They work well.

The outlet in the glovebox is only hot with the key on. The one in the trunk is hot all the time.

Open the glovebox and grab the corner of the body panel in front of the seat. Pull straight up, there's a grommet on both sides that hold it in place.

There are two 4mm Allen screws on the front of the seat under the panel . Pick the front up and slide forward. The heated seat plugs in the back.

You can also download the manual from the Polaris site.. Great bikes, so far, just mounted USB charging unit on my handle bars for the phone and used a cool stream blue tooth interface for the radio..

If you watch the trunk removal video on YouTube you'll get a full concept of the seat, heat, license plate, trunk removal. The Witchdoctor's video is not as thorough as the Andy, VOG, video. IMHO. Welcome new pilot. You're gonna love driving this ride. But where's the pics???
