(hereinafter referred to as Arctic Cat) extends a limited warranty on each new Arctic Cat ATV it assembles and on each genuine Arctic Cat ATV part and accessory assembled or sold by an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. Warranty on an Arctic Cat ATV is extended to the original retail purchaser; however, the balance of the unused warranty may be transferred to another party. Warranty coverage is only available in the country in which the original retail purchase occurs to the original retail purchaser resident in that country or to a transferee resident in that country of the balance of the unused warranty. Arctic Cat warrants only the products it assembles and/or sells and does not warrant that other products will function properly when used with an Arctic Cat ATV or will not damage the ATV. Arctic Cat does not assume any liability for incidental or consequential damages. Arctic Cat will repair or replace, at its option, free of charge (including any related labor charges), any parts that are found to be warrantable in material or workmanship. This repair work MUST be done by an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. No transportation charges, rental charges, or inconvenience costs will be paid by Arctic Cat. The warranty is validated upon examination of said parts by Arctic Cat or an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. Arctic Cat reserves the right to inspect such parts at its factory for final determination if warranty should apply. The warranty periods are as follows: 1. Six months from the date of sale — for an Arctic Cat ATV used for recreational purposes. 2. Ninety days from date of invoice — for an Arctic Cat ATV used for commercial purposes, including rental operations (non-transferable). 3. Thirty days from date of sale of ATV on Arctic Cat supplied batteries. 4. Thirty days from date of sale — for all dealer installed genuine Arctic Cat service parts and accessories. 5. Until expiration of the new product warranty (paragraphs 1 and 2 above) — for all eligible replacement parts on new product. Exclusions to this warranty include normal wear, abuse, or corrosion and the following parts and items: Tires CV Boots Oil Filter Drive Belt Air Filter Brake Pads Light Bulbs Spark Plug(s) The following will VOID Arctic Cat’s warranty: Torn or Punctured Upholstery Cracks or Gouges in Body Panels Drive/Driven Clutch Wear Parts 1. Failure to perform the proper break-in procedure and all related maintenance, storage procedures (if stored for extended periods), and/or service as recommended in the Operator’s Manual. 2. Repairs and/or adjustments by anyone other than an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. 3. Use of improper carburetor main jets. 4. Use of improper gasoline, lubricating oils, or spark plug. 5. An accident or subjecting the ATV to misuse, abuse, or negligent operation. 6. Any modification, addition, or removal of parts unless instructed to do so by Arctic Cat. 7. Use of the ATV in any way for racing purposes. 8. Removal of the engine for use in another vehicle. 9. Removal or mutilation of the Vehicle Identification Number or Engine Serial Number. 10. Use of parts not sold or approved by Arctic Cat. 11. Damage due to improper transportation. In consideration of the foregoing, any implied warranty is limited in duration to the various warranty periods set forth. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state/province to state/province or country to country. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you. 3 Warranty Procedure/Owner Responsibility At the time of sale, a TRV Owner Registration form is to be completed by the selling dealer and consumer. The receipt of the form by Arctic Cat is a condition precedent to warranty coverage. It is the selling dealer’s responsibility to retain and/or submit appropriate copies of the form to the appropriate place(s) to initiate warranty coverage. The dealer will furnish to the consumer a signed copy of the form which must be presented to the dealer when requesting warranty service. The registration form is the consumer’s proof of ownership and warranty eligibility. The form is used by the dealer to validate the warranty claim. Retain your copy of the form and keep it in a safe place. When warranty repair is suspected, the TRV should be taken to the selling dealer, who has the primary responsibility to perform warranty repairs. Subject to the limitations set forth in the Limited Warranty, in the event the selling dealer has ceased to do business, you have moved, or you are in a location away from your selling dealer, warranty may be performed by any authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. The authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer will examine the TRV or part to determine if, in his opinion, a warrantable condition exists. If a warrantable condition appears to exist, the dealer will repair or replace, at Arctic Cat’s option, free of charge, including any related labor costs, all parts that are found to be warrantable and any other parts which the warrantable part caused to be damaged. You, the owner, will then be asked to sign a warranty form to ensure Arctic Cat that the warranty work was actually performed. It is the owner’s responsibility to maintain and service the TRV in accordance with Arctic Cat’s recommendations in the Operator’s Manual. To protect yourself and your TRV, follow all safety and service tips. Arctic Cat will NOT warrant repairs required as a result of not performing standard operator maintenance, storage procedures, and service as outlined in the Operator’s Manual. Should you have any questions concerning the warranty, contact an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. 4 Arctic Cat ATV Emission Control Warranty Statement Warranty Rights and Obligations Arctic Cat Inc. (hereinafter referred to as Arctic Cat) and the California Air Resources Board are pleased to explain the emission control system warranty for each new Arctic Cat ATV sold in the state of California. In California, a new ATV must be designed, built, and equipped to meet the state’s stringent anti-smog standards. Arctic Cat warrants the emission control system on the Arctic Cat ATV for the periods listed below provided there has been no abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance of the ATV. The emission control system may include components such as the carburetor, ignition system, and crankcase ventilation system. Also included may be hoses, belts, connectors, and other emission-related assemblies. When a warrantable condition exists, Arctic Cat will repair the ATV at no cost to the owner, including diagnosis, parts, and labor. Emission Control Warranty Coverage A new Arctic Cat ATV manufactured after January 1, 1997 has a two (2) year warranty on its emissions control components. If an emission-related component on the ATV is defective, the component will be repaired or replaced by any authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. Owner’s Emission Control Warranty Responsibilities It is the owner’s responsibility to perform the required maintenance listed in the Operator’s Manual. Arctic Cat recommends the retention of all receipts covering maintenance performed on the ATV, but Arctic Cat cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance on the emission control system. It is the owner’s responsibility to present the ATV to an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer as soon as a problem exists. The undisputed warranty repairs should be completed within a reasonable period of time, not to exceed thirty days. The ATV owner should be aware that Arctic Cat may deny warranty coverage if either the ATV or a component has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or any unapproved modifications. If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, contact either Arctic Cat Inc, P.O. Box 810, Thief River Falls, MN 56701, (218) 681-4999 or the California Air Resources Board, 9528 Telstar Avenue, El Monte, CA 91731, (818) 5756800. 5 Arctic Cat Emission Control System Limited Warranty Arctic Cat Inc., P.O. Box 810, Thief River Falls, MN 56701 (hereinafter referred to as Arctic Cat) warrants that this new Arctic Cat ATV manufactured on or after January 1st, 1997: A. Is designed, built, and equipped so as to conform at the time of initial purchase with all applicable regulations of the California Air Resources Board and B. Is free from defects in material and workmanship which could cause such ATV to fail to conform with applicable regulations of the California Air Resources Board for a period of use of two (2) years from the date of initial retail delivery. Coverage Warranty defects shall be remedied during customary business hours at any authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer located within the state of California in compliance with applicable regulations of the California Air Resources Board. Any component or components replaced under this warranty shall become the property of Arctic Cat. In California, emission related warranted components are specifically defined by the state’s Emission Warranty Parts List. These warranted components are carburetor and internal components, intake manifold, fuel injection system, spark advance mechanism, crankcase breather, air cutoff valve, fuel/vapor separator, canister, igniters, breaker governors, ignition coils, ignition wires, ignition points, condensers and spark plugs if failure occurs prior to the first scheduled replacement, and hoses, clamps, and fittings used directly in these parts. Since emission related components may vary from model to model, certain models may not contain all of these components, and certain models may contain functionally equivalent components. In California, emission control system emergency repairs, as provided for in the California Administrative Code, may also be performed by other than an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. An emergency situation occurs when an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer is not reasonably available, a component is not available within thirty (30) days, or a repair is not complete within thirty (30) days. Any replacement component can be used in an emergency repair. Arctic Cat will reimburse the owner for the expenses, including diagnosis, not to exceed suggested retail price as set forth by Arctic Cat for all warranted components replaced and labor charges based on the recommended time allowance set forth by Arctic Cat for the warranty repair and the geographically appropriate hourly labor rate. The owner may be required to keep receipts and failed components in order to receive compensation. Limitations This Emission Control System Warranty shall not cover any of the following: A. Repair or replacement required as a result of (1) accident, (2) misuse, (3) lack of required maintenance, (4) repairs improperly performed or replacements improperly installed, (5) use of replacement components or accessories not conforming to Arctic Cat specifications which adversely affect performance, and/or (6) use in competitive racing or related events. B. Inspections, replacement of components, and other services or adjustments necessary for required maintenance. Limited Liability The liability of Arctic Cat under this Emission Control System Warranty is limited solely to the remedying of defects in material and workmanship by an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer at its place of business during customary business hours. This warranty does not cover inconvenience or loss of use of the ATV or transportation of the ATV to or from the Arctic Cat ATV dealer. ARCTIC CAT SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY OTHER EXPENSES, LOSS, OR DAMAGE, WHETHER DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY, ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE SALE OR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE THE ARCTIC CAT ATV FOR ANY PURPOSE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. NO EXPRESS EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY IS GIVEN BY ARCTIC CAT EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY SET FORTH HEREIN. ANY EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY IMPLIED BY LAW, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANT-ABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, IS LIMITED TO THE EXPRESS EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY TERMS STATED IN THIS WARRANTY. THE FOREGOING STATEMENTS OF WARRANTY ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER REMEDIES. No dealer is authorized to modify this Arctic Cat Inc. Limited Emission Control System Warranty. Legal Rights THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE. THIS WARRANTY IS IN ADDITION TO THE ARCTIC CAT INC. LIMITED ATV WARRANTY. Additional Information Any replacement component that is equivalent in performance and durability may be used in the performance of any maintenance or repairs. However, Arctic Cat is not liable for these components. The owner is responsible for the performance of all required maintenance. Such maintenance may be performed at a service establishment or by any individual. The warranty period begins on the date the ATV is delivered to the owner. 6 U.S. EPA Emission Control Statement/Warranty Coverage (U.S. Only) STATEMENT/WARRANTY Arctic Cat warrants to the original retail purchaser, and each subsequent purchaser, that all U.S. EPAcertified Arctic Cat ATV’s are designed, built, and equipped to conform to all U.S. EPA Emission Control Regulations. Please read the following information completely. Your authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer will repair or replace any defective emission-related component at no cost to you during the warranty period. You may have non-warranty service performed by any repair establishment that uses equivalent components. The regulations provide significant civil penalties for tampering that causes your ATV to no longer meet U.S. EPA emission standards. Arctic Cat further warrants that the engine and its emission-related components are free from defects in materials or workmanship that could cause the engine to fail to comply with applicable regulations during the warranty period. If you have any questions about this information, or the emission warranty coverage statement, contact your local authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer. WARRANTY PERIOD The emission warranty period for this ATV begins on the same date as the standard warranty coverage and continues for 30 months or 3100 miles, whichever comes first. COMPONENTS COVERED The emissions warranty covers major emissions control components and emission-related components listed as follows: Engine Management and Sensors Barometric Pressure Sensor Camshaft Position Sensor Engine Control Unit (ECU) Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Intake Air Temperature Sensor Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor Oxygen Sensor Throttle Position Sensor Crankshaft Position Sensor Exhaust Temperature Sensor Ignition System Ignition Coil Knock Sensor System Spark Plugs Capacitive Discharge Ignition (CDI) Module Magneto Pick-Up Fuel/Air System Fuel Injectors Fuel Pressure Regulator Fuel Pump Carburetor(s) Turbocharger Assembly Air Bypass Valve Turbo Waste Gate Control Valve Crankcase Ventilation System ISC Valve Miscellaneous Items Used in Aforementioned Systems Connectors Switches Grommets Clamps Hoses Ties Gaskets Wiring OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITIES The owner of any ATV warranted under this Arctic Cat Emission Control Statement is responsible for the proper maintenance and use of the ATV as stated in the Operator's Manual.

Brad Darling Vice President/General Manager 8 • Always go slowly and be extra careful when operating on unfamiliar terrain. Always be alert to changing terrain conditions when operating the ATV. • Never operate on excessively rough, slippery, or loose terrain. • Always follow proper procedures for turning as described in this manual. Practice turning at slow speeds before attempting to turn at faster speeds. Do not turn at excessive speed. • Always have the ATV checked by an authorized Arctic Cat ATV dealer if it has been involved in an accident. • Never operate the ATV on hills too steep for the ATV or for your abilities. Practice on smaller hills before attempting larger hills. Never operate up or down hills steeper than 25°. • Always follow proper procedures for climbing hills as described in this manual. Check the terrain carefully before you start up any hill. Never climb hills with slippery or loose surfaces. Shift your weight forward. Never open the throttle suddenly or make sudden gear changes. Never go over the top of any hill at high speed. • Always follow proper procedures for going down hills and for braking on hills as described in this manual. Check the terrain carefully before you start down any hill. Shift your weight backward. Never go down a hill at high speed. Avoid going down a hill at an angle which would cause the ATV to lean sharply to one side. Go straight down the hill where possible. • Always follow proper procedures for crossing the side of a hill as described in this manual. Avoid hills with slippery or loose surfaces. Shift your weight to the uphill side of the ATV. Never attempt to turn the ATV around on any hill until you have mastered the turning techniques described in this manual on level ground. Avoid crossing the side of a steep hill if possible. • Always use proper procedures if you stall or roll backward when climbing a hill. To avoid stalling, maintain a steady speed when climbing a hill. If you stall or roll backwards, follow the special procedure for braking described in this manual. Dismount on the uphill side or to either side if pointed straight uphill. Turn the ATV around and mount following the procedure described in this manual. • Always check for obstacles before operating in a new area. Never attempt to operate over large obstacles, such as large rocks or fallen trees. Always follow proper procedures when operating over obstacles as described in this manual. • Always be careful of skidding or sliding. On slippery surfaces, such as ice, go slowly and be very cautious in order to reduce the chance of skidding or sliding out of control. • Never operate the ATV in fast flowing water or in water deeper than the footrests. Remember that wet brakes may have reduced stopping capability. Test your brakes after leaving water. If necessary, apply them lightly several times to let friction dry out the pads. • Always be sure there are no obstacles or people behind you when you operate in reverse. When it is safe to proceed in reverse, go slowly. Avoid turning at sharp angles in reverse. • Always use the size and type tires specified in this manual. Always maintain proper tire pressure as described in this manual. • Never improperly install or improperly use accessories on this ATV. • Never install a twist grip throttle on this ATV. • Never exceed the stated load capacity for this ATV. Cargo should be properly distributed and securely attached. Reduce speed and follow instructions in this manual for carrying cargo or pulling a trailer and allow greater distance for braking. • No one under the age of 16 should operate this ATV. Some operators at the age of 16 may not be able to operate the ATV safely. Parents should supervise the use of the ATV at all times. Parents should permit continued use only if they determine that the operator has the ability to operate the ATV safely. !

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: 26 ! 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. Helmet Your helmet is the most important piece of protective gear for safe riding. A helmet can prevent a severe head injury. There are several types of helmets on the market, but make sure you wear a helmet that complies with the current standards of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), The Snell Memorial Foundation, or the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Helmets that comply with one or more of these agency’s standards have a sticker on the inside or outside of the helmet. Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. Helmets should have one of these: Remember, your helmet won’t do you any good if the chin strap isn’t fastened. Eye Protection 1. DOT label 2. Snell label 3. ANSI Z90.1 label Wear eye protection, such as goggles, to completely surround your eyes to prevent getting dirt or other items in your eyes. Do not depend on sunglasses for proper eye protection. Sunglasses are not recommended; they don’t prevent objects from flying in through the sides. Long Pants and Long Sleeved Shirt These helmets should provide full-face protection. If you drop or damage your helmet, get a new one immediately. Your helmet may not protect your head from injury if it has cracks, fissures, or other damage to its outside or core padding. The goal is to protect your body from branches, long grass, airborne objects, or anything else that could scrape your skin. 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. TRV Condition 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 4. Oil and Fuel 2. Controls and Cable 5. Chassis and Drive Train 3. Lights and Electrical 6. Miscellaneous Items One easy way to remember what parts you need to check is by using the acronym “TCLOC.” 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.

Look for debris or damage that may indicate you need to replace it. A clogged filter can stop an engine. Check your battery terminals for corrosion. Also, be sure to tighten any loose parts, nuts, or bolts. 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. Check: 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. First Aid and Survival in your pocket before you ride.

Flashlight Matches Flares First Aid Kit Money Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. 29 DIVISION I - SAFETY Prevention 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. For complete operating instructions, see ATV OPERATION section in this manual. 30 ! WARNING Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. Overview You are not invincible. Knowing the first “S” in “P.A.S.S.” stands for “Sound Judgment” means you need to use yours.

WARNING Indicates a potential hazard that could result in a serious injury or death. 31 DIVISION I - SAFETY Sound Judgment Sound Judgment Terrain Always pay close attention to the terrain you’re on, even if it is familiar to you. You can’t assume 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. Trail Signs Night Riding Riding at night can be very hazardous. Obstacles and other hazards (that are easily identified during daytime) are much more difficult to see and avoid. When night riding, make sure the lights are properly adjusted and in good working order. Reduce speed; do not over-drive the headlights. Never travel in an unfamiliar area or blaze a new trail at night. Always carry a flashlight or flare for signaling an emergency. Paved Surfaces Don’t do it! The ATV isn’t designed for pavement. Its handling becomes more difficult on paved surfaces. Trail Riding 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.

Handling of the ATV may be adversely affected. Reduce speed when adding additional loads. Alcohol is related to a high percentage of all hospital admissions due to accidents in the U.S. It’s extremely dangerous to drink alcoholic beverages and ride... it’s also very foolish. Substances to avoid when riding: 1. Alcohol 2. Over-the-counter or prescription drugs 3. Illegal/mood altering drugs 34 Be aware of prescription and over-thecounter medications. Drowsiness and impaired judgment can be caused by a wide variety of medications. The same is true of allergy, cold, flu, and headache medications. Your physical size and weight can’t protect you... just one antihistamine tablet can affect your judgment. If your sense of adventure persuades you to do illegal drugs when you’re riding your ATV, this is a reality check. Something to think about—there can be legal consequences that will take away all that freedom you love. Don’t use alcohol or drugs before or during your ride. THE EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL* Reckless Riding If you are involved in an accident when you’re speeding, you have a 25% chance of landing yourself in the hospital. The faster you go, the more likely you are to destroy your head and internal organs, and skip the wheelies, jumps, stunts, and any other showboating. Laws and Regulations Any police officer will tell you 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 you can continue to ride in your favorite areas. The quickest way to have a land area closed is by riding over the regulations. Group Behavior The Number of Drinks that Impair Mental and Physical Abilities People occasionally do crazier and riskier things in a group than they would consider doing by themselves. When you’re riding with others and things start to get out of hand, decide whether you’re willing to be injured or see your friends injured. 1-2 DRINKS Mental processes such as restraint, awareness, concentration, and judgment affected; reaction time slowed; inability to perform complicated tasks. 3-4 DRINKS SIPDE Depth perception, glare recovery, eye movement, and focus affected; decreased judgment and control. By themselves, none of these safe behaviors and sound judgments will go very far. But when you put them all together... when you’re paying attention to how you feel, when you’re monitoring the movements of your ATV, and when you’re constantly evaluating your environment, then you’re practicing SIPDE. SIPDE is an acronym that stands for: 5+ DRINKS Coordination deteriorates, loss of critical judgment, and impaired memory and comprehension. *According to the ATV Safety Institute.

Your wisdom is valuable... it’ll bring them all back safely— your friends, your family, your relatives, and your ATV. It’s crucial you consider yourself a supervisor for all riders of your ATV. Whether you accept responsibility or not, the truth is 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. You don’t want it on your conscience that someone got hurt because you didn’t tell them how to use your ATV. Taking Responsibility Remember that regardless of experience, you should never let You’re to the last letter in “PASS”... “Supervision.” You’ve just gone through anyone under the age of 16 operthe manual, and you’ve seen what’s ate your ATV. involved. That puts you in a good position to be confident about what you know. So now it’s time to use your knowledge and supervise others who ride your ATV. Inexperienced/Untrained Riders You can’t let people ride your ATV who don’t know what they’re doing. 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 under-aged children)—all the more reason for you to be firm. Experienced/Trained Riders If anyone is going to borrow your ATV, you are responsible for their supervision. Before they ride, have them take the training course, have them watch the safety video, and have them read the Operator’s Manual. You train them. It doesn’t matter how you do it, as long as you do it. 36 2411-257 DIVISION II - OPERATION/MAINTENANCE TRV Specifications Displacement Spark Plug Type Spark Plug Gap Brake Types CHASSIS Length (Overall) Height (Overall) Width (Overall) Suspension Travel Tire Size (Front) Tire Size (Rear) Tire Inflation Pressure MISCELLANY Dry Weight (Approx) Gas Tank Capacity Coolant Capacity Differential Capacity Rear Drive Capacity Engine Oil Capacity (Approx) Gasoline (Recommended) Engine Oil (Recommended) Differential/Rear Drive Lubricant Taillight/Brakelight Headlight Starting System 450 H1 550 H1 700 H1 Four-Cycle/Liquid Cooled 89.0 mm x 71.2 mm 92 mm x 82 mm 102 mm x 85 mm (3.50 x 2.80 in.)

Always shift on level ground, or engage the brake lever lock before shifting into another range or into reverse. Braking/Stopping CF130B The automatic transmission has a dualrange transmission with reverse. To shift the transmission, follow these steps: 1. To engage the high range from neutral, move the shift lever forward. Always allow plenty of room and time to stop safely. Sometimes quick stops are inevitable, so always be prepared. Whether you’re stopping slowly or stopping quickly, do this: 1. Squeeze the brake lever on the left handlebar to apply both the front and rear brakes. 2. If your wheels lock, release them for a second; then apply them again. 41 DIVISION II - OPERATION/ MAINTENANCE ! WARNING Do not start the engine or operate this ATV with the clutch shield removed. Severe injury could result. ATV Operation 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. ! WARNING 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 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. Handling 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 Parking involves following the previous rules for braking; then: Riding 1.

If you have to park on a hill, shift the ATV into low gear; otherwise, try to park only on level surfaces. 5. Engage the brake lever lock. Dismounting the TRV ATV-0012 After you’ve followed the procedure for parking, it’s time to dismount: 1. Keep your feet on the footrests and both hands on the handlebar. 1. The operator should double check that the brake lever lock is engaged. 2. Hold the brake lever, and release the brake lever lock. 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. 3. Shift into gear. 42 4. Release the brake slowly and apply the throttle. 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 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 and passenger’s body weight to the inside of the turn. ATV-0025 3. Gradually increase your speed as you come out of the turn. 43 DIVISION II - OPERATION/ MAINTENANCE ATV-0044 ATV Operation Sharp Turns After mastering wide turns, practice the advanced skill of sharp turns. ATV-203 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. Quick Turns 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. K-Turns Use K-turns if you accidentally stall Quick turns are the most difficult turns while riding uphill; you need to take and should only be done after you are action before the ATV rolls backward experienced with your ATV. down the hill. 44 ATV Operation 6. If you’re to the left of the ATV, turn the handlebar all the way left. 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. 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-204 ATV-207 1. Stop where you are, apply the brakes, and shift to neutral. 1. Accelerate before you start climbing; then maintain a steady pace. 2. Shut off the engine. 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. Keep your body weight shifted forward. 4. Ask the passenger to dismount. 5. Get off the ATV on the uphill side. 45 DIVISION II - OPERATION/ MAINTENANCE 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 3. If you lose speed, release the throttle Sidehilling/Traversing (so your front tires don’t lift), OR Sidehilling is considered an advanced 4. If that doesn’t work and you still skill; it’s really tricky and unpredictable. have forward motion and the terrain So, whether your skills are advanced or permits, do a U-turn, go back down, not, try to avoid this kind of riding.

Never Operate Up Or Down Hills Steeper Than 25° ATV-0017 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. ATV-0028 2. Keep it in a gear; stay out of neutral. 3. Lightly apply the brake and ease up on the throttle. 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. ATV-208 46 ATV Operation 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. Swerving 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. Swerving is usually an emergency reaction to avoid an obstacle but is similar to Crossing Obstacles quick turns. The difference is that quick turns involve slight acceleration in the Crossing obstacles is risky; avoid it if possible. Riding over logs, rocks, and turn; don’t accelerate if you swerve. 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 twotrack (both tires contacting the obstacle at the same time) obstacles: ATV-0043 ATV-0016 ATV-0026 ATV-0041 1. Ease off the throttle as you approach the obstacle. ATV-0027 47 DIVISION II - OPERATION/ MAINTENANCE ATV-0042 ATV Operation 1. Stop the ATV. 2. Keep your handlebar straight. 2. Have the passenger dismount. 3. Backing down hills is a bad idea; do a U-turn or K-turn instead to turn around. 3. Keep your speed way down; less than 5 mph. 4. Approach the obstacle head-on. 5. Come up off the seat. 6. Keep your weight on the footrests. 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. Skidding or Sliding If you lose control after hitting sand, ice, mud, or water: 1. Turn your handlebar into the direction of the slide. 2. Keep your hand off the brakes until you’re out of the skid. 3. Shift your weight forward. Sometimes your ATV may not respond 9.

Stop completely on the shoulder of the road. 2. Check both directions for traffic. 3. Crossing near a blind corner or intersection is dangerous; don’t do it. 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. 2. If the tires are frozen to the ground, pour warm water around them to melt the ice. CAUTION Before riding, manually move the ATV forward and backward to make certain that all wheels roll freely. 3. If the brakes are frozen, use a suitable heating device to thaw out the brakes. ! WARNING Do not attempt to free frozen brakes by pouring warm water on the brake pads and housings. 4. Drive straight across to the opposite shoulder.  NOTE: After the brakes thaw, dry 5.

Physically check the depth and current of the water, especially if you can’t see the bottom. You’re also checking for boulders, logs, or any other hidden obstacles. ATV Operation ! WARNING 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. 50 5. Learn how the ATV responds to steering and braking on the type of terrain to be encountered on the ride. Stopping The ATV To stop the ATV, first release the throttle lever. Next, apply the brake.

FI475B Control engine RPM with the position of the throttle lever. Operate this lever with the thumb. Pushing it forward increases engine RPM and allowing it to retract decreases engine RPM. Throttle Limiter Screw Throttle lever travel may be limited by adjusting the throttle limiter screw. The throttle limiter should be adjusted according to the operator’s skill and experience. To adjust the throttle limiter, use the following procedure. 1. Loosen the jam nut. The EPS system engages when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position and disengages after approximately five minutes (to conserve battery power) if the engine is not running. This system is entirely maintenance-free: no adjustment or servicing is required. There are no fluids to check or change, and the EPS system is entirely self-contained and sealed to protect it from the elements. The EPS system is battery system powered; therefore, the battery must be in good condition and fully charged. Power delivery and overload protection is provided by an EPS relay and 30-amp fuse located under the seat in the Power Distribution Module (PDM).  NOTE: Turn the key switch to the OFF position then back to the ON position to reset the malfunction code. If the code continues to be disATV-0053 played, take your ATV to an authorized 2.
