Operating on Frozen Bodies of Water
Operating on frozen bodies of water may result in serious injury or death if the
ATV and/or the operator fall through the ice.
Never operate the ATV on a frozen body of water.

Poor Visibility

Operating the ATV in darkness or inclement weather could result in a collision or
accident, especially if operating on a road or street. This ATV is not equipped
with highway-approved lights. Operate this vehicle off-road only. Use caution
and drive at reduced speeds in conditions of reduced visibility such as fog, rain
and darkness. Clean headlights frequently and replace burned out headlamps
promptly.

Operating a Damaged ATV

Operating a damaged ATV can result in an accident. After any overturn or
accident, have a qualified service dealer inspect the entire machine for possible
damage, including (but not limited to) brakes, throttle and steering systems.

Physical Skills

Safe operation of this rider-active vehicle requires good judgement and physical
skills. Persons with cognitive or physical disabilities who operate this vehicle
have an increased risk of overturn and loss of control.

Hot Exhaust Systems

Exhaust system components are very hot during and after use of the vehicle.
Hot components can cause burns and fire. Do not touch hot exhaust system
components. Always keep combustible materials away from the exhaust
system. Use caution when traveling through tall grass, especially dry grass.

Unauthorized Use of the ATV

Leaving the keys in the ignition can lead to unauthorized use of the vehicle,
which could result in an accident or overturn. Always remove the ignition key
when the vehicle is not in use.
