Picked up a 2013 xp 500 have problems

got a brand new xp 500, got home rode it for a bit, then it starts cutting out and dieing, takes forever to get it running agian,mwhen I do it runs for a bit and does the same thing, also there's a smell like stuck brakes but checked them and they are ok, have any ideas? Just curious if I can fix it easy I might just fix it and not bother with taking it back to th dealer

Nope I can roll it, plus I don't see one, there's no mention of one in the manual?

Ok, I planned on taking it back but thought if it was an easy fix, I do it but looks like a trip to the dealer is in order thanks.

My 2006 500 and my buddy's 2002 500 both have foot pedals for the parking brake.

No doubt you would! I use mine when my Ranger is on the trailer. How lame that they left it off.
