Physical Control of the ATV

Removing a hand from the handlebars or
feet from the footrests during operation can
reduce your ability to control the vehicle or
cause loss of balance and ejection from the
ATV. If the operator's foot is not firmly
planted on the footrest, it could also contact
the rear wheels.
Never remove your hands from the
handlebars while operating, and always
keep both feet on the footrests.

Turning Improperly

Turning improperly could cause loss of
traction, loss of control, accident or overturn.
Always follow proper procedures for turning
as described in the owner's manual.
Never turn abruptly or at sharp angles. Never
turn at high speeds. Practice turning at slow
speeds before attempting to turn at faster
speeds.

Jumps and Stunts

Attempting wheelies, jumps and other
stunts increases the risk of an accident or
overturn.
Never attempt wheelies, jumps, or other
stunts. Avoid exhibition driving.

Improper Hill Climbing

Improper hill climbing could cause loss of
control or overturn. Always follow proper
procedures for climbing hills as described in
the owner's manual. See page 51.
