WARNING Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. 19 Prevention Overview When using this ATV, prevention is the name of the game. “Had you only known” something could go wrong, you would have prevented it. If you don’t notice your conditions and surroundings before riding your ATV, you give up control over the situation. Using ATV prevention techniques helps you forecast potential hazards before they injure you or damage your ATV. Following the safety instructions and warnings in this manual will help you “P.A.S.S.” the safety test. P.A.S.S. stands for “Prevention,” “Active Riding,” “Sound Judgment,” and “Supervision.” Remembering P.A.S.S. and what it stands for will help you have a safe, predictable ride every time you go out on your ATV. Safe Riding Clothing and Gear (Operator and Passenger) Always wear clothing suited to the type of riding you are doing. TRV riding requires special protective clothing which will make you feel more comfortable and reduce chances of injury. You’ll find it important to dress correctly for riding in order to prevent scraped skin and serious head injuries. It’s easy and could save you time in the long run not having to contend with an injury. Of course, it also makes sense to remember the seasons. Wear a hat under your helmet and a snowmobile suit in the winter and lighter, protective clothing in the summer. Following is the minimum protection you need to wear during every ride: 20 ! WARNING ATV-0004 Gloves Your hands are targets for flying objects and branches. Along with providing skin protection, gloves will shield your hands from harsh weather. Wear gloves that are weather resistant and have a gripping surface to keep them from sliding off the handlebars. Off-road style gloves with knuckle pads are the best for comfort and protection. Boots/Ankle Protection Wear a boot that covers the largest possible area of your leg (preferably up to your knee) and can handle significant impact. Choosing boots with low heels and a good tread will help prevent your feet from slipping off the footrests in wet or rugged conditions or getting hurt if they get hit by rocks, dirt, or branches. Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. Prevention If you drop or damage your helmet, get a new one immediately.

The more thick and durable the material, the better protection it’ll provide. Riding pants with kneepads, a jersey, and shoulder pads provide the best protection. Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. 21 PREVENTION Helmet Prevention Condition of the TRV The second step in Prevention is checking the condition of your ATV. Chances are good that you’ll be using your ATV in some rough terrain, and there’s no way you want your brakes to go out when riding downhill. You need to check the following parts on your ATV before every ride. 1. Tires and Wheels 2. Controls and Cable 3. Lights and Electrical 4. Oil and Fuel 5. Chassis and Drive Train 6. Miscellaneous Items One easy way to remember what parts you need to check is by using the acronym “T-CLOC.” It stands for: T C L O C TIRES AND WHEELS CONTROLS AND CABLE LIGHTS AND ELECTRICAL OIL AND FUEL CHASSIS AND DRIVE TRAIN 1. TIRES AND WHEELS A. Brakes Correct tire pressure is crucial. Consult the General Maintenance section of this Operator’s Manual for tire pressure guidelines. Incorrect tire pressure can cause poor handling, instability, and a loss of ATV control. Squeeze your hand brake lever. If it feels soft or “squishy,” it could be low on fluid or have a leak — refer to the General Maintenance section of this Operator’s Manual for instructions. Don’t use the ATV until the brakes are operating normally. Check: 1. Tire pressure 2. Tire surface (tread and sidewalls) Check: 1. Hand brake lever 2. Auxiliary brake pedal 3.

Check: 1. Forward 2. Neutral 3. Reverse 22 ! WARNING Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. Prevention B. Throttle 5. CHASSIS AND DRIVE TRAIN The throttle should have a free, smooth range of motion. If it seems to “stick” at any point, refer to the General Maintenance section of this Operator’s Manual for instructions. Driving your ATV with a sticking throttle can turn your leisurely ride into an unwelcome accident. Don’t drive your ATV if the throttle sticks. Grass and leaves can gum-up your suspension and shocks. Clear and clean the suspension arms, shock springs, and fenders. Check smoothness by turning the handlebar full-left and fullright. Check that there is no binding, restrictions, free-play, or looseness in steering components. Check: 1. Free, smooth range of motion 3. LIGHTS AND ELECTRICAL Turn the hi-beam and lo-beam on and off to make sure they work. At the same time, check that the taillight and brakelight work. Also, check the status/ warning indicators (reverse, neutral, and HI-LO beam) on the LCD when you start the ATV. Don’t drive the ATV unless all systems are working. Check the ignition switch and engine stop switch. Check: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Hi-beam Lo-beam Taillight/brakelight Status/warning indicators Ignition switch Stop switch 1. 2. 3. 4.

Riding on rough terrain could cause loosening of nuts, bolts, and fasteners. Especially on long rides, carrying the right tools can prevent an inconvenience from becoming a crisis. It may be necessary to make an urgent phone call. Carry these items on your ATV: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Bulbs Duct tape Rope Spark plugs Spare parts Tool Kit Water is so important that you need to carry it regardless of the duration of your ride. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can creep up suddenly and can take you out of commission. If you become dehydrated, you could find yourself physically unable to safely operate your ATV. Identification If something does happen to you, the emergency personnel will want to know who you are and whom to contact. It’s possible you may be in no condition to give them that information. Put your I.D. in your pocket before you ride. Without it, you’re anonymous. ! WARNING Maps may be unnecessary when you’re familiar with the area. But when you’re riding on unfamiliar trails, it’s good to know where you are, what’s coming up, and how to get back. Emergency Kit with Flashlight and First Aid Kit Water 24 Maps/GPS (Global Positioning System) You’ll need several items in your Emergency Kit including a flashlight. The matches will come in handy if you need to start a fire to stay warm. Flares are appropriate for signaling help. A first aid kit is very important if an injury of some type should happen. A good First Aid Kit should include bandages, antiseptic spray, gauze, tape, etc. Carry these items: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Flashlight Matches Flares First Aid Kit Money Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. Active Riding Overview “Active Riding” is the second part of “P.A.S.S.” It involves an understanding of how your body weight, balance, gravity, and physical forces affect the handling of the ATV. For example, when you drive a car quickly into a sharp turn, your body is pulled to the outside of the turn by centrifugal force. Although a car is relatively stable, enough centrifugal force can cause the ATV to overturn. Constantly shifting operator and passenger weight is one major difference between driving a car and riding the ATV. Knowing how to shift your weight is necessary to avoid rolling or flipping the ATV. ACTIVE RIDING For complete operating instructions, see ATV OPERATION section in this manual. ! WARNING Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. 25 Sound Judgment Overview You are not invincible. Knowing that the first “S” in “P.A.S.S.” stands for “Sound Judgment” means you need to use yours. Do you consider yourself to be pretty conservative, or are you a heavy risktaker?

Trail Riding Terrain Always pay close attention to the terrain you’re on, even if it is familiar to you. You can’t assume that the landscape you’re used to doesn’t change. Changes to landscape can happen at nearly any time. Fences can be constructed and excavations dug in a short period of time. Weather, climate, and development take their toll. Use sound judgment when trail riding; that means riding on a trail that fits your ability level. If the trail is pretty rugged, standing up on your footrests will make it easier for you to endure the rough terrain. Make yourself visible by using headlights and taillights, and pull completely off the trail if you need to stop.

Sound Judgment Laws and Regulations SIPDE Any police officer will tell you that ignorance of the law is no defense. Your best defense is to check out your local, state, or provincial laws before riding. It’ll also make sure that you can continue to ride in your favorite areas.

It’s crucial that you consider yourself a supervisor for all riders of your ATV. Whether you accept responsibility or not, the truth is that you are responsible for others riding your ATV. TRV’s are a little different from the handling to the stability to the controls. So regardless of how much experience your family members have, they don’t have experience with your ATV. Let experienced riders get familiar with your ATV—show them the basics before they take off.

Unless they’ve had over a year of experience with riding an all-terrain ATV or taken a training course, it’s your responsibility to keep them off your ATV. It can be dangerous (especially for underaged children)—all the more reason for you to be firm. Experienced/Trained Riders 1411-956 If anyone is going to borrow your ATV, you are responsible for their supervision.

Varying Temperature Adjustments To ensure proper starting and operating performance, adjustments should be made for varying ambient temperatures. See an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer for recommended temperature adjustements.  NOTE: These recommended adjustments are the owner’s responsibility. Shifting CAUTION Always shift into low range when operating on wet or uneven terrain, when towing or pushing heavy loads, and when using a plow. Failure to follow this caution may result in premature V-belt failure or in damage to related drive system components. 3. To engage reverse gear from neutral, move the shift lever outward and rearward into the R position. CAUTION Always come to a complete stop before attempting to shift from one range to the other or into reverse. Always shift on level ground, or engage the brake lever lock before shifting into another range or into reverse. ! WARNING CF130B Do not start the engine or operate this ATV with the clutch shield removed. Severe injury could result. The automatic transmission has a dualrange transmission with reverse.

To engage the low range from high range, move the shift lever outward and forward. 1. Squeeze the brake lever on the left handlebar to apply both the front and rear brakes.  NOTE: The high range is for normal riding with light loads. The low range is for carrying heavy loads or trailer towing. Compared to HIGH range, the LOW range position provides slower speed and greater torque to the wheels. 2. If your wheels lock, release them for a second; then apply them again. 40 3. Never “ride” the brake. Even maintaining minimal pressure on the brake lever will cause the brake pads to drag on the disc and may overheat the brake fluid. ATV Operation Excessive repetitive use of the hydraulic brake for high speed stops will cause overheating of the brake fluid and premature brake pad wear which will result in an unexpected loss of brakes. ! WARNING Use only Arctic Cat approved brake fluid. Never substitute or mix different types or grades of brake fluid. Brake loss can result. Check brake fluid level and pad wear before each use. Brake loss can result in severe injury or even death. Parking Parking involves following the previous rules for braking; then: 1. After the ATV stops, shift into neutral. 2. Stop the engine using the engine stop switch. 3. The operator should swing the right leg over to the left side of the seat. 4. The operator should step to the ground on the left side of the ATV. How to Handle the TRV (Active Riding Techniques) Active riding involves moving your body. You and your passenger must learn to lean and shift body weight into turns to maintain control. Safe riding techniques include: • • • • • • • • • • • Riding Leaning, Weight Shift, and Balance Wide Turns Sharp Turns Quick Turns K-Turns Riding Uphill Riding Downhill Sidehilling/Traversing Swerving Crossing Obstacles Riding 3. Turn off the ignition. Once the engine’s warm, the ATV is 4. If you have to park on a hill, shift ready to go. the ATV into low gear; otherwise, try to park only on level surfaces. 5. Engage the brake lever lock. Dismounting the TRV After you’ve followed the procedure for parking, it’s time to dismount: 1. The operator should double check that the brake lever lock is engaged. 2. The passenger should grasp the left shoulder of the operator with the right hand and with the left hand grasp the left-side handhold; then swing the right leg over the seat and step to the ground on the left side of the ATV. ATV-0012 1. Keep your feet on the footrests and both hands on the handlebar. 2. Hold the brake lever, and release the brake lever lock. 3. Shift into gear. 4. Release the brake slowly and apply the throttle. 41 ATV OPERATION ! WARNING ATV Operation Leaning, Weight Shift, and Balance When you turn, the trick is to move forward and slide over to the side of the seat that’s on the inside of the turn. Support your body weight on the outside footrest. At the same time, lean your body and the passenger body to the inside of the turn. Pay attention to the handling—if you feel the tires coming off the ground, reduce speed, shift more of your body weight and passenger’s body weight to the side that’s lifting, and make the turn wider if possible. Wide Turns Many accidents happen during turns. If you don’t understand turning techniques, it’s easy for the ATV to get away from you by losing traction, plowing, or tipping. Use this method for wide turns: ATV-0046 ATV-0013 ATV-0045 ATV-0024 ATV-0044 1. Ease off the throttle as you approach the turn to slow down. ATV-0025 2. Use the principles of leaning, weight shifting, and balancing— shift your body weight and passenger’s body weight to the inside of the turn. 3. Gradually increase your speed as you come out of the turn. 42 ATV Operation Sharp Turns Quick Turns ATV OPERATION After mastering wide turns, practice Quick turns are the most difficult turns the advanced skill of sharp turns. and should only be done after you are experienced with your ATV. ATV-202 1. Ease off the throttle as you approach the turn to slow down. 2. Use the principles of leaning, weight shifting, and balancing— shift your body weight to the inside of the turn. 3. You might have to lean into the turn more than you do in a wide turn. 4. If shifting your weight and balance aren’t enough to keep the ATV tires on the ground, straighten out the handlebar as much as you can. 5. Gradually increase your speed as you come out of the turn. ATV-203 1. Ease off the throttle as you approach the turn to slow down. 2. Turn the handlebar and shift weight and balance at the same time as you enter the turn (use the principles of leaning, weight shifting, and balancing—shift your body weight and passenger’s body weight to the inside of the turn). 3. Follow this with slight acceleration. 4. For multiple turns, repeat this movement as needed. 5. To make your turn quicker, try raising yourself off the seat a few inches as you shift your weight. 43 ATV Operation K-Turns Use K-turns if you accidentally stall while riding uphill; you need to take action before the ATV rolls backward down the hill. ATV-0037 1. Stop where you are, apply the brakes, and shift to neutral. 2. Shut off the engine. ATV-0020 3. Keep your body weight shifted forward. 4. Ask the passenger to dismount. 5. Get off the ATV on the uphill side. 6. If you’re to the left of the ATV, turn the handlebar all the way left. ATV-0034 7. Partially release the brake, but lightly hold the brake lever. 8. Let the ATV roll to your right side until it faces slightly downhill. 9. Reapply the brakes. ATV-0035 10. Get back on the ATV from the uphill side, have your passenger mount the ATV from the uphill side, and keep your body weight and the passenger’s body weight shifted uphill when you sit down. 11. Start the engine and follow the method for riding downhill. Riding Uphill ATV-0036 44 Many accidents happen while riding on hills and as a result of the ATV rolling or flipping. So, obviously, use extreme caution and follow this method for riding uphill. ATV Operation Riding Downhill Success in riding downhill depends on how well you know your brakes—take it easy on them, or you could flip over. 1. Shift your body weight and passenger’s body weight as far back on the seat as possible. 2. Keep it in a gear; stay out of neutral. 3. Lightly apply the brake and ease up on the throttle. ATV OPERATION ATV-207 1. Accelerate before you start climbing; then maintain a steady pace. 2. Both the operator and the passenger should lean as far forward as possible. For steeper hills, the operator should come off the seat to stand and lean forward. 3. If you lose speed, release the throttle (so your front tires don’t lift), OR 4. If that doesn’t work and you still have forward motion and the terrain permits, do a U-turn, go back down, and try climbing again, OR ATV-208 5. If you have lost all forward motion, Sidehilling/Traversing follow the K-turn procedure. Never Operate Up Or Down Hills Steeper Than 25° Sidehilling is considered an advanced skill; it’s really tricky and unpredictable. So, whether your skills are advanced or not, try to avoid this kind of riding. If you’re in a situation where you absolutely have to sidehill, follow this method: 45 ATV Operation Swerving Swerving is usually an emergency reaction to avoid an obstacle but is similar to quick turns. The difference is that quick turns involve slight acceleration in the turn; don’t accelerate if you swerve. ATV-0017 ATV-0043 ATV-0028 ATV-0042 ATV-0029 1. Keep your speed low and consistent. 2. Shift all your body weight and passenger’s body weight to the uphill side of the seat; also, support weight on the uphill footrest. 3. Steer like you’re driving into the hill. 4. If the ATV feels like it’s tipping, turn the handlebar downhill. If that’s not possible because of the terrain or other conditions or if it just doesn’t work, stop and get off. Have the passenger dismount on the uphill side first; then you should dismount on the uphill side. ATV-0041 1. Ease off the throttle as you approach the obstacle. 2. Turn the handlebar. At the same time, shift weight and balance as you swerve. Use the principles of leaning, weight shifting, and balancing—shift your body weight and the passenger’s body weight to the inside of the turn. 3. Keep your hand off the brake until the emergency is over and you’re back in control. 46 ATV Operation Crossing Obstacles 6. Keep your weight on the footrests. Crossing obstacles is risky; avoid it if possible. Riding over logs, rocks, and ruts means combining all the active riding skills into one big motion. Your ATV will respond differently for different obstacles (logs, ruts, etc.), but these are general guidelines for overcoming two-track (both tires contacting the obstacle at the same time) obstacles: 7. Apply a little throttle when the front tires make contact with the obstacle. 8. Lean forward and release the throttle when the front tires clear the obstacle. 9. Keep your body loose to absorb any shock. 10. If the ATV starts tipping, shift your body weight to keep it in balance. To clear a single-track (only one tire contacts) obstacle, follow the same rules except: ATV-0016 2. Don’t pull up on the handlebar. 3. Don’t apply the throttle. Tips ATV-0026 Driving an ATV and a car have some similarities; however, there are always exceptions to the rules. Here are a few situations that require special attention: • • • • • • • • • ATV-0027 1. Stop the ATV. 2. Have the passenger dismount. 3. Keep your speed way down; less than 5 mph. 4. Approach the obstacle head-on. 5. Come up off the seat.

WARNING For your personal safety, it is very important to wear the type and amount of cold-weather clothing according to the coldest anticipated temperatures. 1. With the transmission in neutral, move the ATV forward and backward to check that the wheels roll freely. If the ATV will not roll, the tires may be frozen to the ground or the brake pads may be frozen to the discs. Go slowly and be extra careful when riding on snow-covered or ice-covered terrain. Always be alert to changing terrain conditions when operating the ATV. 4. Practice driving in an open snowcovered or ice-covered area at slow speeds before driving on snow-covered or ice-covered trails. 5.

The recommended oil to use is Arctic Cat ACX All Weather synthetic engine oil, which has been specifically formulated for use in this Arctic Cat engine. Although Arctic Cat ACX All Weather synthetic engine oil is the only oil recommended for use in this engine, use of any API certified SM 5W-50 oil is acceptable. GASOLINE-OILLUBRICANT Recommended Gasoline The recommended gasoline to use is 87 minimum octane regular unleaded. In many areas, oxygenates (either ethanol OILCHARTI or MTBE) are added to the gasoline. Oxygenated gasolines containing up to Recommended Front 10% ethanol, 5% methane, or MTBE Differential/Rear Drive are acceptable gasolines. Lubricant When using ethanol blended gasoline, it is not necessary to add a gasoline antifreeze since ethanol will prevent the accumulation of moisture in the fuel system. CAUTION Do not use white gas. Only Arctic Cat approved gasoline additives should be used. Recommended Engine/ Transmission Oil CAUTION Any oil used in place of the recommended oil could cause serious engine damage. Do not use oils which contain graphite or molybdenum additives. These oils can adversely affect clutch operation. Also, not recommended are racing, vegetable, non-detergent, and castor-based oils. 64  NOTE: Arctic Cat recommends the use of genuine Arctic Cat lubricants. The recommended lubricant (front differential and rear drive) is SAE approved 80W-90 hypoid. This lubricant meets all of the lubrication requirements of the ATV. CAUTION Any lubricant used in place of the recommended lubricant could cause serious front differential/ rear drive damage. Filling Gas Tank ! WARNING Always fill the gas tank in a wellventilated area. Never add gasoline to the gas tank near any open flames or with the engine running or hot. DO NOT SMOKE while filling the gas tank. During the first 10 hours of operation, always use less than ½ throttle. Varying the engine RPM during the break-in period allows the components to “load” (aiding the engine/transmission component mating process) and then “unload” (allowing components to cool). Although it is essential to place some stress on the engine components during break-in, care should be taken not to overload the engine too often. Do not pull a trailer during the break-in period. When the engine starts, allow it to warm up properly. Idle the engine several minutes until the engine has reached normal operating temperature. ATV-049D Do not idle the engine for excessively Allow the engine to cool before filling long periods of time. the gas tank. Care must be taken not to Brakes overfill the tank.
