Eye Protection

Do not depend on eyeglasses or sunglasses for eye protection. When-
ever riding a Polaris vehicle, always wear shatterproof goggles or use a
shatterproof helmet face shield. Polaris recommends wearing approved
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) bearing markings such as VESC
8, V-8, Z87.1, or CE. Make sure protective eye wear is kept clean.
Off-road style gloves with knuckle pads are the best for comfort and
The best footwear is a pair of sturdy over-the-calf boots with low heels.
Always wear long sleeves and long pants to protect arms and legs.
Riding pants with kneepads and a jersey with shoulder pads provide the
best protection.

Equipment Modifications

We strongly recommend that consumers do not install on a Polaris ATV
any equipment that may increase the speed or power of the vehicle, or
make any other modifications to the vehicle for these purposes.
The warranty on your Polaris ATV is terminated if any equipment has
been added to the vehicle, or if any modifications have been made to the
vehicle, that increase its speed or power.
The addition of certain accessories, including (but not limited to) mow-
ers, blades, tires, sprayers, or large racks, may change the handling char-
acteristics of the vehicle. Use only Polaris-approved accessories, and
familiarize yourself with their function and effect on the vehicle.
