Turning the Vehicle

Your ATV is equipped with
a solid rear axle, which
drives both rear wheels
equally at all times. This
means that the wheel on the
outside of the turn must
travel a greater distance
than the inside wheel when
turning and the inside tire
must slip traction slightly.
To turn, steer in the direc-
tion of the turn, leaning
your upper body to the
inside of the turn while
supporting your weight on
the outer footrest. This
technique alters the balance
of traction between the rear
wheels, allowing the turn to be made smoothly. The same leaning tech-
nique should be used for turning in reverse.
Practice making turns at slow speeds before attempting to turn at faster
WARNING! Turning improperly can result in vehicle overturn. Never turn
abruptly or at sharp angles. Never turn at high speeds.
