Brake Lever

Operating the ATV with a spongy brake lever can result in loss of braking, which
could cause an accident. Never operate the ATV with a spongy-feeling brake
lever. Always contact your dealer for service before operating the vehicle.
Squeeze the brake lever toward the
handlebar to apply the front and
rear brakes. These brakes are
hydraulically activated disc type
brakes that are activated by only
one lever.
Always test brake lever travel and
master cylinder fluid level before
riding. When squeezed, the lever
should feel firm. Any sponginess
would indicate a possible fluid leak or low master cylinder fluid level,
which must be corrected before riding. Contact your dealer for proper
diagnosis and repairs.
