INTRODUCTION
Your dealer should have provided you
with some basic information on the
particular controls and features of your
new youth model ATV. Please take the
time to study this Operator's Guide
and all on-product warning labels as
well as the Safety Videocassette that
came with this vehicle. They more
completely describe what you should
know about this vehicle before riding
it.
Whether you are a new user or an experienced rider, it is important for your
personal safety as well as passenger
safety that you know the controls and
features of this vehicle. Equally important is knowing how to properly ride.
Irrespective of your age, experience or
state regulations, it is always prudent
for you or any other person who may
ride your vehicle, to take an approved
safe riding course. Please check with
your dealer or local authorities for availability in your area. If you are a completely new rider, this should be done
before your first ride. Your instructor
should be able to provide advice on local conditions and safe riding practices
particular to the area.
Riding conditions vary from place
to place. Each is subject to weather
conditions which may radically change
from time to time and from season to
season. Riding on sand is different
than riding on snow or through forests
or marshes. Each location may require a greater degree of awareness
and skill may not be suitable with a
passenger. Show good judgement.
Always proceed with caution. Please
do not take any unnecessary risks that
could leave you or your passenger
stranded or possibly injured.
The vehicle handling, stability and
braking distance may be affected
when riding with a passenger. Safely
reduce speed when riding with a passenger. Allow greater distance for
braking.
The contents of this Operator's Guide
provide riding information which has
been proven reliable by other users.
They are not intended as a definitive
means of avoiding accidents. How
you apply this information, coupled
with your mental and physical condition, the particular terrain hazard and
your risk acceptance level will have
an effect on your riding experience.
Have fun... and ride responsibly.
This Operator's Guide has been prepared to acquaint the owner/operator
of a new vehicle with the various vehicle controls, maintenance and safe
operating instructions. They are indispensable for the proper use of the
product.

 Always use proper procedures if
you stall or roll backwards when
climbing a hill. To avoid stalling,
use proper gear and maintain a
steady speed when climbing a hill.
If you stall or roll backwards, follow
the special procedure for braking
described in this Operator's Guide.
Dismount on the uphill side or to a
side if pointed straight uphill. Turn
the vehicle around and remount,
following the procedure described
further in this Operator's Guide.
 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 further in this Operator's Guide.
 Always be careful when skidding
or sliding. Learn to safely control
skidding or sliding by practicing at
low speeds and on level smooth
terrain. On extremely slippery surfaces, such as ice, go slowly and be
very cautious in order to reduce the

SAFETY WARNING
To fully appreciate the pleasures and excitement of riding this vehicle, there are
some basic rules and tips that you should follow. Some may be new to you while
others may be common sense or obvious. Irrespective, we ask that you take a
few minutes to read, with your child, this Operator's Guide completely before he
operates this vehicle.
Information in this Operator's Guide is limited. It is strongly recommended that
you obtain further information and training from your local authorities, ATV clubs
or a recognized ATV training organization such as Specialty Vehicle Institute of
America (SVIA) or the Canada Safety Council (CSC).
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and all ATV manufacturers do
not recommended anyone under the age of 16 to ride an ATV having an engine
higher than 90 cc and anyone under age of 12 to ride an ATV having an engine
higher than 70 cc. For the child's safety, we strongly recommend you also follow
and enforce this recommendation. You are the sole judge of a rider's capability
to understand the risks and operate a vehicle safely.
Persons with cognitive or physical impairments or who are high risk takers have
an increased exposure to overturns or collisions which may result in injury including death.
Become completely familiar with the operational controls and the general operation of the vehicle before venturing into off road conditions. Practice driving in
a suitable area free of hazards and feel the response of each control. Drive at
low speeds. Higher speeds require greater experience, knowledge and suitable
riding conditions.
Not all vehicles are the same. Each has its own unique performance characteristics, controls and features. Each will ride and handle differently.
Never assume that the vehicle will go everywhere safely. Sudden changes in
terrain caused by holes, depressions, banks, softer or harder “ground“ or other
irregularities may cause the vehicle to topple or become unstable. To avoid this,
slow down and always observe the terrain ahead. If the vehicle does begin to
topple or tipover, it is usually the best advice to immediately get off... AWAY
from the direction of the tipover!
_____________________
39
Pre-operation Check
 WARNING
The pre-operation check is very
important prior to operating the
vehicle. Always check the proper
operation of critical controls,
safety features and mechanical
components before starting. If
not done, severe injury or death
might occur.
Before using this vehicle, the operator
and/or an adult should always:
a) Apply parking brake and check if it
operates properly.
b) Check tire pressure and condition.
c) Check wheels and bearings for
wear and damage.
d) Check location of controls and ensure they work properly.
e) Verify if steering operates freely.
f) Activate throttle control lever several times to ensure it operates
freely. It must return to idle position when released.
g) Activate the brake levers to make
sure the brakes fully apply. Levers
must fully return when released.
h) Check drive chain for adjustment
and lubrication.
i) Check sprockets for wear and
damages.
j) Check fuel and oil levels.
k) Check for oil leaks on the engine,
transmission and the drive train
components.
l) Ensure fuel valve is in fully open
position (ON).
m) Ensure seat is properly latched.
n) Look and feel for loose parts while
engine is off. Check fasteners.
o) Ensure the path of travel is free of
persons and obstacles.
40
p) Check operation of ignition switch,
start button, engine stop switch
and indicator light.
q) Start engine, remove parking brake
and drive forward slowly a few feet
then apply all brakes individually to
test them.
Correct any problem you may have
found before riding. See an authorized Bombardier ATV dealer as necessary.
______________________
Clothing
Actual weather conditions should help you decide how to dress. However, it
is important that the operator always wear the appropriate protective clothing
and apparel, including an approved helmet, eye protection, boots, gloves, long
sleeved shirt and pants. This type of clothing will provide you protection from
some of the minor hazards you may encounter en route. Operator must never
wear loose clothing such as a scarf that may get entangled in the vehicle or on
tree branches and shrubs. Depending on conditions, antifogging goggles or sun
glasses may be required. Sun glasses should only be worn during the daytime.
Different colored lenses available for goggles or glasses help you distinguish terrain variations.

Carrying Loads
This vehicle is designed specifically to carry an operator only. Even with a long
seat that provide unrestricted operator movements, it is not designed nor intended to carry passenger(s). Do not install passenger's seat or use the racks or
their location to carry passenger(s). Carrying passenger(s) may affect the stability and your control of the vehicle.
Never load cargo on this vehicle.
Recreational Riding
Respect the rights and limitations of others. Stay away from areas designated
for other types of off road use. This includes snowmobile trails, equestrian trails,
cross country ski trails, mountain bike trails etc. Never assume there are no other
users on the trail. Always stay to the complete right of the trail and do not zig
zag to one side of the trail then the other. Be prepared to stop or pull off to the
side if another trail user appears in front of you.
Always keep a safe distance from other riders. Your judgment of speed, terrain conditions, weather, mechanical condition of your vehicle and the "trust in
judgment" you have in others around you will help you make a better choice of
appropriate safe distance. This vehicle, like any other motorized vehicle, cannot
stop "on a dime".
Before you ride, tell someone where you are planning to travel and your expected
time of return. Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while riding!
Depending on the length of your ride, carry additional tools or emergency equipment. Find out where you can get additional gasoline and oil. Be prepared for
the possible conditions you may encounter. An emergency first aid kit should
always be a consideration.
Environment
One of the benefits of this vehicle is that it can take you off the beaten path
away from most communities. However, you should always respect nature and
the rights of others to enjoy it. Do not ride in environmentally sensitive areas.
Do not drive over forest crops or shrubs... nor cut down trees or take down
fencing... nor spin your wheels and destroy the terrain. “Tread Lightly”.
Chasing wildlife is in many areas illegal. Wildlife can die of exhaustion after being
chased by a motorized vehicle. If you encounter animals on the trail, stop and
observe quietly and with caution. It will be one of the better memories of your
life.
Observe the rule... “what you take in, carry out”. Do not litter. Do not start
campfires unless you have permission to do so... and then only ... away from
dry areas. The hazards you may create on the trail may cause injury to others or
yourself, even at a later date.
Respect farm lands. Always obtain the permission of the landowner before riding
on private land. Respect crops, farm animals and property lines. If you come to
a closed a gate, close it again after yourself.
Finally, do not pollute streams, lakes or rivers and do not modify the engine or
muffling system, or remove any of its components.
42
______________________
Design Limitation
Although the vehicle is exceptionally rugged for its class, it is still a light vehicle
by definition and its operation must be restricted to its proper purpose.
The addition of weight to any part of the vehicle changes its gravitational stability
and modifies its performance.
Off-Highway Operation
The very nature of off-highway operation is dangerous. Any terrain, which has
not been specially prepared to carry vehicles, presents an inherent danger where
angularity, terrain substance and exact steepness are unpredictable. The terrain
itself presents a continual element of danger, which must be knowingly accepted
by anyone venturing over it.
An operator who takes a vehicle off-road should always exercise the utmost care
in selecting the safest path and keeping close watch on the terrain ahead of him.
On no account should the vehicle be operated by anyone who is not completely
familiar with the driving instructions applicable to the vehicle, nor should it be
operated on steep or treacherous terrain.
General Operating and Safety Precautions
Care, caution, experience and driving skill are the best precautions against the
hazards of vehicle operation.
Whenever there is the slightest doubt that the vehicle can safely negotiate an
obstacle or a particular piece of terrain, always choose an alternate route.
In off-road operation, power and traction, not speed, are important. Never drive
faster than visibility and your own ability to select a safe route permit.
Constantly watch the terrain ahead for sudden changes in slopes or obstacles,
such as rocks or stumps, that may cause loss of stability, resulting in tipover or
rollover.
Never operate the vehicle if the controls do not function normally.
When stopped or parked, always apply the parking brake. This is especially important when parking on a slope. On very steep inclines or if the vehicle is carrying cargo, the wheels should be blocked using rocks or bricks. Remember to
turn the fuel valve to the closed position.
Uphill Driving
Due to configuration, this vehicle has excellent climbing ability, so much so that
tipover is possible before traction is lost. For example, its common to encounter
terrain situations where the top of the hill has eroded to a point that the hill peak
rises very sharply. The vehicle can readily negotiate such a condition, however,
in doing so, when the front of the vehicle is driven to a point that the vehicle's
balance changes rearward tipover can occur.
The same situation may apply if an embedded object causes the front of the
vehicle to climb more than desired. If such a situation occurs take an alternate
route. Be aware of side hilling dangers when doing so.
_____________________
43
It is also wise to know the terrain condition on the other side of the hill or bank. All
too often there exists a sharp drop-off that is impossible to negotiate or descend.
Downhill Driving
This vehicle can climb slopes that are steeper than it can safely descend. Therefore, it is essential to assure that a safe route exists to descend a slope before
you climb it.
Decelerating while negotiating a slippery downhill slope could “toboggan“ the
vehicle. Maintain steady speed and/or accelerate slightly to regain control.
Side Hilling
Whenever possible, such operation should be avoided. If necessary, do so with
extreme caution. Side hilling on steep inclines could result in rollover. In addition, slippery or unfirm surfaces could result in uncontrollable side sliding. Do
not attempt to turn the vehicle downhill with the slide. Avoid all objects or depressions that will intensify the raising of one side of the vehicle higher than the
other, thus causing rollover.
Drop-Offs
This vehicle will “bottom-out“ and usually stop if either the front or rear wheels
are driven over a drop-off. If the drop is sharp or deep, the vehicle will nose dive
and tipover.

WARNING
Avoid negotiating drop-offs. Reverse and select an alternate route.
Riding Techniques
Riding your vehicle too fast for the conditions may result in injury. Apply only
enough throttle to proceed safely. Statistics show that high speed turns usually
result in mishaps and injury. Always remember that this vehicle is heavy! Its
pure weight alone may entrap you should it fall and pin you down.
This vehicle is not designed for jumping nor can it, or you, absorb the energy of
high impacts such as jumping. Performing “wheelies“ can cause the vehicle to
flip over onto you. Both practices have a high risk for you and should be avoided
at all times.
To maintain proper control it is strongly advised that you keep your hands on the
handlebar and within easy reach of all controls. The same holds true for your
feet. To minimize the possibility of any leg or foot injury, keep your feet on the
footrests at all times. Do not direct your toes outwards nor place your foot out to
assist turning as they can be hit or snagged by passing obstacles or may contact
the wheels.
44
______________________
V00A0UL
Even though there is an adequate suspensions system on this vehicle there are
“washboard” or rough terrain conditions that will make you feel uncomfortable
and even cause back injury. “Posting“ or riding in a crouched position will often
be required. Slow down and allow your flexed legs to absorb impact.
This vehicle is not designed for riding on roads or highways. In most places it is
an illegal practice. Riding your vehicle on roads or highways could cause a collision to occur with another vehicle. ATV tires are not suited for paved road use.
Pavement may seriously affect the handling and control of the vehicle. Riding on
roads or soft shoulders may confuse other road users, especially if your lights are
on. If you have to cross a road, the lead driver should get off his vehicle then observe and give directions to the other riders. The last person after crossing then
assists the lead driver to cross. Do not travel sidewalks. They are designated
for pedestrian use.
Water can be a unique hazard. If it is too deep the vehicle may “float“ and topple.
Check the water depth and current before you attempt to cross any water. Water
should not go above the footrest. Be wary of slippery surfaces such as rocks,
grass, logs, etc., both in the water and on its banks. A loss of traction may occur.
Do not attempt to enter the water at high speed. The water will act as a brake
and could throw you.
_____________________
45
V00A0VL
Water will affect the braking ability of your vehicle. Make sure you dry the brakes
by applying them several times after the vehicle leaves the water.
Mud or marsh lands may be encountered near water. Be prepared for sudden
“holes“ or changes in depth. Similarly so, be watchful of hazards such as rocks,
logs, etc., partially covered by vegetation.
If your trip crosses frozen waterways, make sure that the ice is thick enough and
sound enough to support the total weight of yourself, the vehicle and its load.
Be ever watchful of open water... it is a sure indication that the ice thickness will
vary. If in doubt, do not attempt to cross.
Ice will also affect the control of vehicle. Slow down and do not “gun“ the throttle. This will only result in spinning of the tires and possible tipover of the vehicle.
Avoid rapid braking. This again will possibly result in an uncontrolled slide and
tipover of the vehicle. Slush should be avoided at all times since it could block
the operation or controls of the vehicle
Sand and riding on sand dunes or on snow is another unique experience but
there are some basic precautions that should be observed. Wet, deep or fine
sand/snow may create a loss of traction and cause the vehicle to slide, drop off
or become “bogged“ down. If this occurs look for a firmer base. Again, the best
advice is to slow down and be watchful of the conditions.
46
______________________
When riding in sand dunes it is advisable to equip the vehicle with an antenna
type safety flag. This will help make your location more visible to others over the
next sand dune . Proceed carefully should you see another safety flag ahead.
Since the antenna type safety flag can snag and rebound on your body if caught,
do not use it in areas where there are low hanging branches or obstacles.
Riding on loose stones or gravel is very similar to riding on ice. They will affect
the steering of vehicle... possibly causing it to slide and tipover especially at
high speeds. In addition, braking distance may be a effected. Remember that
“gunning“ the throttle or sliding may cause loose stones to be ejected rearwards
into the path of another rider's way. Never do it deliberately.
V00A0WL
If you do get into a slide or skid, it may help to turn the handlebar into the direction
of the skid until you regain control. Never jam the brakes and lock the wheels.
Respect and follow all posted trail signs. They are there to help you and others.
Obstacles in the “trail“ should be traversed with caution. This includes loose
rocks, fallen trees, slippery surfaces, fences, posts, and embankments and depressions. You should avoid them whenever possible. Remember that some
obstacles are too large or dangerous to cross and should be avoided. Small rocks
or fallen trees may be safely crossed... approach at a 90° angle. Stand on the
footrests while keeping your knees flexed. Adjust speed without losing momentum and do not “gun“ the throttle. Hold handgrips firmly. Place your body weight
rearwards and proceed. Do not try to lift the vehicle front wheels off the ground.
Be aware that the object may be slippery or may move while crossing.
When driving on hills or slopes two things are highly important... be prepared
for slippery surfaces or terrain variations and obstacles and... use proper body
positioning.

Keep your body weight forward towards the top of the hill. Keep your feet on
the footpegs and shift into low gear then accelerate and when necessary, change
gear quickly as you climb. Do not over-speed since this may cause the front of
the vehicle to lift from the ground and fall back on you. If the hill is too steep
and you cannot proceed or the vehicle begins to roll backwards, apply the brake,
being careful not to slide. Dismount then use the “U“ turn or “K“ turn (while
walking back, next to the vehicle on the up hill side and with a hand on the brake
lever, slowly back the rear of the vehicle toward the top of the hill then drive
downhill). Always walk or dismount on the upside of the slope while keeping
clear of the vehicle and its rotating wheels. Do not try to hold on to the vehicle if
it begins to topple. Stay clear. Do not ride over the crest of the hill at high speed.
Obstacles, including sharp drop-offs, may exist.

Side hilling
This is one of the most risky types of riding since it may drastically change the
balance of the vehicle. It should be avoided wherever possible. If it is necessary
to do so however, it is important that you ALWAYS keep your body weight on
the upside of the slope... and be prepared to dismount on that side should the
vehicle begin to topple. Do not try to stop or save the vehicle from damage.

______________________
Routine Maintenance
Once your ride completed, it is wise to remove any build up of snow, ice, mud and
grime. Not only will this help you keep your vehicle longer and in good condition
for resale but will eliminate potential hazards the next time you use the vehicle.
Wash your vehicle in warm soapy water then allow it to dry. (A towel may help).
Do not wash your vehicle outside during freezing weather. Apply appropriate
lubrication as described in the MAINTENANCE section.
Part of your responsibility towards safety is to respect the contents of this Operator's Guide. It provides valuable advice on how to properly take care of your
vehicle. If further assistance is required your authorized Bombardier ATV dealer
is always willing to help.
Modification of the vehicle to increase speed and performance may violate the
terms and conditions of your vehicle limited warranty. In addition, certain modifications including the removal of engine or exhaust components are illegal under
most laws.
Changing the wheel and/or tire size may affect the stability of the vehicle. Incorrect tire pressure may lead to blow outs or cause a tire to move around on its
rim and become lost or damaged. Wheels or tires which are damaged should
always be replaced.

HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR ATV
The main components of your vehicle (engine and frame) are identified
by different serial numbers. It may
sometimes become necessary to
locate these numbers for warranty
purposes or to trace your vehicle in
the event of loss. These numbers
are required by the authorized Bombardier ATV dealer to complete warranty claims properly. No warranty
will be allowed by BRP if the engine
identification number (EIN) or vehicle
identification number (VIN) is removed
or mutilated in any way. We strongly
recommend that you take note of all
the serial numbers on your vehicle
and supply them to your insurance
company.

BREAK-IN PERIOD
Engine
Belt
4-Stroke Models
2-Stroke Models
A break-in period of 10 operating hours
is required before running the vehicle
at sustained full throttle.
A new belt requires a break-in period
of 50 km (30 miles). Avoid strong acceleration/deceleration or high speed
cruising.
CAUTION: Never mix oil with fuel.
During this period, maximum throttle
should not exceed 3/4. However, brief
full acceleration and speed variations
contribute to a good break-in. Continued wide open throttle accelerations,
prolonged cruising speeds and engine
overheating are detrimental during the
break-in period.
2-Stroke Models
To insure maximum durability and optimal performance and to avoid engine
damage, please pre-mix the first four
tanks of fuel with two-stroke engine oil
at 30:1 ratio. Do not operate the ATV
at more than half throttle for the first
three hours. During the break-in period (first four tanks of fuel), operate
the vehicle at various RPM and do not
operate the vehicle above half throttle
for extended periods.
10-Hour Inspection
As with any precision piece of mechanical equipment, we suggest that
after the first 10 hours, 400 km (250
m.) or 30 days after the purchase,
whichever comes first, your vehicle
be inspected by an authorized Bombardier ATV dealer. This inspection
will give you the opportunity to discuss the unanswered questions you
may have encountered during the first
hours of operation.
The 10-hour inspection is at
the expense of the vehicle
owner.
