Operating an ATV with sticking or improperly operating throttle controls could
cause an accident. Never start or operate an ATV that has a sticking or
improperly operating throttle. Always contact your dealer for service before
operating the vehicle.
Failure to check or maintain proper operation of the throttle system can result in
an accident if the throttle lever sticks during operation. Always check the lever
for free movement and return before starting the engine. Also check
occasionally during operation.
Modifications to the electronic throttle control could result in failure to perform as
designed, which could result in an accident. Do not attempt to modify the throttle
control system or replace it with any after market throttle mechanisms. Always
ensure that the throttle cable is installed and properly routed to the throttle
Engine speed and vehicle move-
ment are controlled by pressing the
throttle lever. The throttle lever is
spring loaded. Engine speed returns

This ATV is equipped with Polaris
Electronic Throttle Control (ETC),

throttle cable should stick in an
open position when the operator releases the throttle lever, the engine
will stop, and power to the rear wheels will cease.
