Page 8
The rear brake is the primary stopping brake
on your vehicle. Using the rear brake to stop
your vehicle will prevent steering control
loss.
Fuel Tank
Use your front and rear brakes in combination
to control your speed while descending a
grade. Use caution not to apply too much
pressure to your front brakes so that the
wheels lock up, stop turning, and cause a loss
of steering control. If the front wheels lock up,
and stop turning, lightly reduce the pressure
on the front brake lever until they unlock and
start to turn.
The fuel tank fill cap is located on top of the
unit just ahead of the seat. The cap contains a
vent to prevent a vacuum from forming in the
tank as fuel is used. The vent tube must be
attached to the cap and inserted in the vent
tube holder hole while operating the unit. The
fuel cap vent and vent tube must be clean and
clear of obstructions for the unit to operate
normally. You can check the vent and vent
tube by blowing air through the tube. If you can
not blow through the vent tube and cap, you
must clean the vent and tube or replace them.
Parking Brake
Every time you refuel your unit, check the
rubber seal inside the cap for cuts, tears and
dirt. Clean or replace the seal if it becomes
worn or torn. The seal must be in good
condition to insure a proper seal of the cap to
the tank to prevent fuel spills. DO NOT allow
dirt or other debris to enter the tank when
refueling.
The front brake lever has a button located at
the pivot point to lock the brake in the, “O”, on
position. This should be engaged as a parking
brake whenever the vehicle is not in operation.
Replace the cap if damaged or if it will not seal
to the tank.
This feature must be engaged in order to start
the engine. The brake lever has a safety
switch built in to prevent the engine from
starting while the brake is disengaged.
Tighten the cap snugly, being careful not to
over tighten. Over tightening the cap can
cause damage to the cap or seal.
If your engine fails to start, ensure that the
engine stop switch is in the on, “O”, position
and that the parking brake is engaged.

HOT engine could cause a fire. Wipe up any
fuel spills before re-starting.
Fuel Valve
The unit is equipped with a vacuum controlled
fuel valve. The fuel supply is automatically shut
off when the engine is stopped.
The fuel will automatically begin to flow when
the engine is turned over.
To test the fuel valve remove the fuel line from
the carburetor and place the end in a container
to catch the fuel. Insure that your tank has fuel
and press the starter button. Fuel should flow
into the container from the fuel line.
ALWAYS CHECK YOUR Fuel level before
you start riding your ATV.
Remember: You can drive further in one hour
on your ATV than you can walk in one day.
The filter should be replaced every 600 hours
of operation and at the start of each season.
To replace the filter, carefully compress the
wire clamp rings until the clamp is free of the
fuel line. Slide each clamp away from the filter
about ¾”.
Remove the filter from the fuel line by holding
the line and pulling the filter. Install the new
filter by inserting the filter into the fuel line and
returning the clamps to the original position.
Start the engine and check for leaks. Inspect
the fuel lines for cuts, abrasions and
deterioration. Replace fuel lines as needed.

be change more frequently.
Engine Oil
Changing Engine Oil
Your ATV uses automotive type engine oil to
lubricate the engine. The engine oil dip stick is
located on the right hand side of your engine
below the transmission shifting lever.
To check your oil level, remove the dip stick by
turning the thumb hold counter clockwise until
the stick has been completely disengaged from
the threads. Pull the dip stick out of the
crankcase and check the level of the oil as
indicated on the dip stick. The engine oil is full
when the oil reaches the level on the stick as
indicated in the photo above.
Always check your engine oil level with the
engine off and cold. Removing the dip stick
with the engine running could cause hot oil to
splash from the crankcase causing severe
burns.
Checking your engine oil while the engine is
hot can give you a false reading; always check
the oil level with a cold engine.
Your engine requires SAE 30W engine oil and
the crankcase capacity is 1.0 Liters / 1 quart.
The engine oil should be changed before the
start of each riding season or every 300 hours
of operation. When riding where conditions are

Transmission
Shifting
Oil Cooler
Your ATV is equipped with a fully automatic
C.V.T. transmission and has forward and
reverse gearing. A transmission shifting shaft
is located on the right hand side of your engine.
The engine oil is cooled by pumping the oil
through an external oil cooling radiator located
at the front of the unit. It is important that the
cooling fins of the radiator be kept clean of dirt
build up to prevent engine overheating.
The shifter has three positions “F” Forward, “N”
Neutral and “R” Reverse.
Remove any build up of mud and dirt from the
cooling unit with a pressurized spray of water.
.
Inspect the Oil cooler line for leaks and
damage. Replace any damaged lines and
repair any leaking connections before starting
the engine.
Copyright ©2008-2009 ETON America, all rights reserved.
The instrument panel has three lights that
correspond to the transmission shifter shaft
position.
The transmission must be placed in the “N”
(neutral – Green indicator Lamp) to start the
engine.
Page 12
Slowly move the shifting lever to the desired
gear pausing slightly at the neutral position.
Once you have the gear selected increase the
throttle slowly until the transmission becomes
fully engaged and the vehicle starts moving in
the desired direction.
When shifting gears it is important that you
bring the vehicle to a complete stop with the
rear brake fully engaged and the engine at idle.
If you attempt to shift the transmission with the
engine running above the idle speed the
engine will automatically shut down to protect
the transmission.
If this should happen you will need to turn off
the ignition switch to reset the safety lock out
before attempting to restart the engine.
Transmission Oil
Your ATV uses SAE 80/90W gear oil to
lubricate the drive and transmission gears.

6. Fill the transmission box with SAE 8090 gear oil, 750cc / 25.4oz
7. Reinstall the fill hole plug and torque to
2-3lbf-ft.
8. Dispose of used oil at a proper
recycling station as required by law.
There is an oil sight glass in the side of the
transmission case to check the level of the oil
in the gear box. The oil level is correct when
the level in the sight glass is half way up the
glass. The level should be checked with the
engine stopped and cold. Checking the level
when the engine is hot can cause a false
reading and lead to a low gear oil level.
Your gear oil should be checked before each
riding session. The gear oil should be changed
before each riding season or every 1000 hours
operation.

Tire & Wheel inspection
It is important to inspect your tires and wheels
for damage and wear before each riding
session. Inspect each tire for cuts, tears and
punctures. Inspect the wheel rim for dents and
separation of the wheel from the tire bead.
Replace any tire or wheel found to be
damaged.
Operating your ATV with damaged tires or
wheels is dangerous. Damaged tires or wheels
can result in a sudden loss of tire pressure and
control which could result in injuries.
Check your tire pressure before each riding
session and at each refueling operation.
Always check the pressure when the tires are
cool. Use the tire pressure gauge that came
with your ATV to check the tire pressure.

Air Filter
Air Filter Maintenance
Remove the filter element from the air box and
replace the filter element as needed.
Braking Systems
To maintain the highest performance from your
engine and to reduce excessive wear that could
cause engine failure the engine requires a
continuous flow of clean air. Air is taken into the
engine through an air filter to clean the air prior
to mixing it with fuel in the carburetor.
During normal operation the filter accumulates
dirt from the air and will need to be cleaned to
maintain the proper air flow. The filter should
be cleaned every 30 days, more often if you
ride in a dusty or dirty environment and the
element should be replaced every year.
Your ATV unit is equipped with dual front
mechanical drum brakes and a rear hydraulic
disc brake. The front brakes are applied by
squeezing the brake lever on the right-handle
bar, while the rear brake is applied by squeezing
the brake lever on the left-handle bar.
Proper maintenance of the brake system is a
necessary part of safe operation of your unit. The
brake systems should be inspected and tested
before each riding session.
Front Brake System
Inspection
The air filter box is located at the front of the
engine under the fuel tank.
To clean the filter
Remove the air filter box.

Visually inspect the brake cables for any signs of
wear. Inspect the cables for frays and kinks that
inhibit the free movement of the cable. Replace
frayed or kinked cable before operating your unit.
Inspect the cables for rust or corrosion. Replace
any brake cable that show signs of corrosion as
this could cause a reduction in cable strength that
can lead to the cable breaking.
Page 15
Inspect the brake arm, spring, rod and fastener for
signs of wear or damage. Operate the brake lever
while watching the brake mechanism for proper
operation. Tighten, repair or replace parts as
needed to insure safe brake operation. Clean any
build-up of mud or debris from the brake
mechanism.
The brakes are equipped with a wear indicator to
alert you when your brake shoes need replacing.
Apply light pressure to the brake lever and slowly
push the unit forward. If you hear a high pitched
metallic scraping sound, you need to replace your
brake shoes. The minimum shoe lining thickness
is 1.5mm.
Adjust the brake cable so that the lever has zero
free play and a minimum clearance of ½”
between the lever and the handle grip when the
brake is fully applied. Adjust the cable by using
the adjustment wheel where the cable attaches
to the lever assembly. After obtaining the correct
adjustment, insure that the locking nut is
tightened securely against the adjusting wheel to
prevent the adjustment wheel from turning due
to vibration. Keep your brake cables lubricated
with a high quality cable lubricant to prevent rust
and corrosion. The cables should be lubricated
every 60 days or more often if operated in a
dusty or wet environment.
Replacement of the brake shoes and cables
should ONLY be preformed by a qualified
mechanic.
Rear Brake System
Inspection
Visually inspect the brake hose for any signs of
wear or leaks. Check the fluid level in the fluid
reservoir by checking the site glass for the level.
DO NOT RIDE A UNIT WITH WORN
BRAKE SHOES.
Test the brakes by applying pressure to the
brake lever and trying to push the unit forward. If
the wheel rotates while the brakes are applied,
adjust the brake cable until the wheels no longer
rotate.
(See Brake Adjustment)
Brake Adjustment

The fluid level should fill at least ¾ of site glass
when the unit is setting on a level surface.
Test the brakes by applying pressure to the brake
lever and trying to push the unit forward. If the
wheel rotates while the brakes are applied, check
your fluid level and brake pads. If the brake lever
feels spongy or does not stop when squeezed,
you may have air in the lines. All air must be
purged from the brake lines for the disc brake to
operate properly. (See purging brake lines).
Page 16
Purging Brake
Lines
After riding your unit, be sure to clean any build up
of mud, sand and dirt from the brake rotor skid
plate. This will protect the rotor disc from rust and
corrosion.
For the hydraulic brake system to operate safely,
the brake system must be purged of air in the lines
and reservoir.
To bleed the air will require two people to perform
the following procedure.
To Fill the Reservoir
Remove the reservoir cover by removing the two
cover bolts.
Fill the reservoir to 1/8”
from top with Dot-3
SAE-J1703 grade

the proper tension retighten the axle position
locking bolt.
Drive Chain
The drive chain will stretch with use and will
require periodic adjustments. To check the chain
tension, remove the chain guard and measure the
slack.
The amount of slack in the chain should not
exceed 10-20mm or ¼” - ½”.
The chain should be kept well lubricated to
prevent excess wear and premature failure. We
recommend that you lubricate the chain every 15
hours of operation, or more frequently if needed,
with a high quality chain lubricant.
Inspect the drive and axle sprockets for worn,
damaged or broken teeth. Replace as needed.
Inspect the chain links for damaged, worn or loose
rivets. Repair or replace as needed.
Throttle Lever
Chain Slack Adjustment
The throttle lever is located beside the righthandlebar grip and is operated by using the righthand thumb. The lever is spring loaded and will
return to the idle position when you remove your
thumb from the lever. To accelerate the unit,
simply press the lever forward to open the throttle
slide in the carburetor. To slow the unit, reduce the
pressure on the lever or remove your thumb and
the throttle will return to the idle position

The cable should be adjusted to allow for ⅛” free
travel before the throttle engages the carburetor
throttle slide. Slide the adjuster cover down the
cable to uncover the adjuster assembly. To adjust
the cable’s free travel, loosen the locking nut of
the cable adjuster, and turn the adjuster nut until
there is ⅛” free travel in the lever. Tighten the
locking nut to secure the adjusting nut. Slide the
cover back over the adjuster assembly.

The unit’s battery is located under the seat and
supplies electrical power to the unit. The battery
is a 12 volt jell acid type that contains no liquid
electrolyte. The battery should be removed from
the vehicle when stored for extended periods
and charged before being replaced in the unit.
Use a trickle charger set at 12 volts to recharge
the battery to full charge before replacing it in
the unit.
Page 19
9. Check all nuts, bolts and other
fasteners for loose conditions.
10. Inspect unit for any broken or damaged
parts.
11. Check all indicator lights and switches
for proper operation.
12. Insure you are wearing proper clothing
and protective gear: Helmet, Gloves
Pads, etc.
When reinstalling the battery, be sure to connect
the red cable to the positive (+) terminal and the
black cable to the negative (-) terminal.
The battery should be replaced every three years
or when it no longer holds a charge.
Do not expose the battery, for extended periods of
time, to freezing temperatures. If the battery has
been frozen it will need to be replaced. There is
an inline fuse on the positive lead of the battery to
protect the wiring system from over loads. If your
starter motor will not turn over and the battery is
fully charged, check the inline fuse on the unit.
Replace the fuse with a 7A fuse.
Pre-Operation Inspection
procedure
The following procedure must be
performed before each operating session.
Checking your ATV takes only a few minutes
and may save you from serious injuries and
costly repairs.

2. Check engine fuel level.
3. Check brake operations and brake fluid
level.
4. Check tire condition and pressure.
5. Check drive chain condition and slack.
6. Check throttle operation and free play
adjustment.

Starting Procedure
The following procedure must be followed
each time you start your unit.
Park the unit on a level surface and lock the
parking brake. Place the transmission gear
selector shaft in the “N”, Neutral, position. Turn
the engine stop switch to the “ON” position.
Turn the ignition key switch to the “ON”
position. Apply slight pressure to the throttle
lever. Press the starter button on the lefthandle bar.
Your unit should start within 10 seconds of
pushing the starter button. If the unit fails to
start check the following.
1. Ignition key switch is “ON”
2. Engine stop switch is “ON”.
3. Parking Brake Locked “ON”.
4. Transmission selector switch in the “N”
position
Driving your ATV
Your ATV should only be driven in an area that
is designated for this use. Insure that the area
is free of obstacles and other dangers that
could cause a loss of control. Check with your
local authorities for any regulations regarding
the use of your ATV.
Always keep your feet on the footrests and
your hands on the handle bar grips while
operating your ATV. Doing so will give you the
best control of the unit.
Start your ATV by following the starting
procedure above and allow the engine a few
minutes to warm up before releasing the
parking brake.
Start the unit by slowly increasing the throttle
until the unit begins moving.
Page 20
Turning your ATV
Learning to turn your ATV requires you to learn
to shift your weight and control the throttle to
allow the rear wheels to turn properly. When
making a turn, the wheels on the outside of the
turn must travel a wider radius and thus a
greater distance than the inside wheels of the
turn. Since the rear axle does not permit a
different rate of rotation, it is not enough to
merely steer your ATV into the turn.
To turn properly, steer in the direction of the
turn and lean your body to the inside of the
turn while supporting your weight on the outer
footrest. Use the throttle to maintain power
throughout the turn.
If you do not use this turning technique the unit
will have a tendency to continue in a straight
line. If this occurs, release the throttle lever to
allow the unit to stop.
Avoid braking or accelerating until you have
regained directional control.
Parking Your ATV
1. Always park your ATV on a level
surface.
2. Turn the ignition key to the “OFF’”
position to stop the engine.
3. Set the engine stop switch to “OFF”
position.
4. Engage the parking brake locking
button.
5. Remove the ignition key to prevent
unauthorized use or theft of your ATV.

Standard Accessories
Your Yukon comes equipped with a front and
rear cargo racks. The weight limit on these
racks is 30Lbs each. Exceeding these limits
can result in loss of control causing damage to
your unit and serious injuries.
Also standard is the full front brush bar. The
brush bar protects the ATV and engine oil
cooler unit. The screen on the bar must be
kept free of debris to allow air to free flow to
the oil cooling radiator.
Dual driving lights and Brake/Tail light for
additional safety. Test the operation of your
driving lights and Brake/Tail light before each
riding session.
Auxiliary 12v DC electrical outlet for cell phone
and other mobile equipment. (DON NOT
Operate Vehicle while using Cell Phone)
Optional Accessories
