SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
AN ATV IS NOT A TOY AND CAN BE
HAZARDOUS TO OPERATE.
An ATV handles differently from other
vehicles including motorcycles and
cars. A collision or rollover can occur
quickly, even during routine maneuvers such as turning and driving on hills
or over obstacles, if you fail to take
proper precautions.
SEVERE INJURY OR DEATH can result if you do not follow these instructions:
• Read the Operator’s Guide, the Safety Handbook and all labels carefully
and follow the operating procedures
described.
• Never operate an ATV without proper
instruction. Take a training course.
Beginners should receive training
from a certified instructor. Contact an
authorized ATV dealer to find out
about the training courses nearest
you or call the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America (SVIA) at 1-800-8872887 or in Canada, the Canada Safety
Council (CSC) at 1-613-739-1535 ext.
227.
• Always follow this age recommendation: A child under 16 years old
should never operate this ATV.
• Never carry a passenger on an ATV.
• Never operate an ATV on any paved
surfaces, including sidewalks, driveways, parking lots and streets.
• Never operate an ATV on any public
street, road or highway, even a dirt
or gravel one.
• Never operate an ATV without
wearing an approved helmet that
fits properly. You should also wear
eye protection (goggles or face
shield), gloves, boots, long sleeved
shirt or jacket, and long pants.
• Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while operating this ATV.
• Never operate at excessive speeds.
Always go at a speed that is proper
for the terrain, visibility, and operating conditions, and your experience.
• Never attempt wheelies, jumps, or
other stunts.
• Always inspect your ATV each time
you use it to make sure it is in safe
operating condition. Always follow
the inspection and maintenance
procedures and schedules described in the Operator’s Guide and
the Safety Handbook.
• Always keep both hands on the handlebars and both feet on the footpegs of the ATV during operation.
• 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 until you
have learned and practiced the skills
necessary to control the ATV on
such terrain. Always be especially
cautious on these kinds of terrain.
• Always follow proper procedures
for turning as described in the Operator’s Guide and the Safety Handbook. Practice turning at low speeds
before attempting to turn at faster
speeds. Do not turn at excessive
speed.
• Never operate the ATV on hills too
steep for the ATV or for your abilities. Practice on smaller hills before
attempting larger hills.
5
vmo2000_001b.fm Page 6 Friday, September 17, 1999 1:21 PM
• Always follow proper procedures
for climbing hills as described in the
Operator’s Guide and the Safety
Handbook. Check the terrain carefully before you start up any hill.
Never climb hills with excessively
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 the Operator’s Guide and the Safety Handbook. 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 that
would cause the vehicle 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 the Operator’s Guide and
the Safety Handbook. Avoid hills
with excessively 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 technique described in the
Operator’s Guide and the Safety
Handbook on level ground. Avoid
crossing the side of a steep hill if
possible.
• 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 the Operator’s Guide and
the Safety Handbook. Dismount on
the uphill side or to a side if pointed
straight uphill. Turn the ATV around
and remount, following the procedure described in the Operator’s
Guide and the Safety Handbook.

• 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 the Operator’s
Guide and the Safety Handbook.
• 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
chance of skidding out of control.
• Never operate an ATV in fast flowing water or in water deeper than
that specified in the Operator’s
Guide and the Safety Handbook .
Remember that wet brakes may
have reduced stopping ability. Test
your brakes after leaving water. If
necessary, apply them 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.
• Always use the size and type tires
specified in the Operator’s Guide.
Always maintain proper tire pressure as described in this guide.
• Never modify an ATV through improper installation or use of accessories.
• Never exceed the stated load limits
for an ATV. Cargo should be properly
distributed and securely attached.
Reduce speed and follow instructions in the Operator’s Guide and
the Safety Handbook for carrying
cargo or pulling a trailer. Allow greater distance for braking.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Why must my vehicle be registered with the factory? After all, I do have my
original invoice as proof of when I purchased my vehicle.
A: Registration is very important and an authorized Bombardier ATV dealer
must register your vehicle with Bombardier. Make sure the card has been
sent. All of this will allow you to:
a) Have warranty work performed at any authorized Bombardier ATV dealer
in North America. Your registration card will provide the dealer with all
the necessary data to complete warranty claim forms.
b) Be advised by Bombardier should there be a safety recall or a particular
warranty campaign.
c) Be contacted much faster by the police, in the event that they find your
vehicle subsequent to a theft.
Q: Why must my vehicle be registered with the governing body having jurisdiction over vehicle use?
A: Vehicle registration has two purposes: In many provinces or States, it is
mandatory to register a vehicle in the same way as for a car. It allows the
State or province to maintain records of existing vehicles. In some juridictions, governmental agencies use part of the registration fees for establishing and maintaining trails.
Q: Where can I find information on the lubrication and maintenance of my vehicle?
A: In the Operator’s Guide provided with the vehicle at the time of delivery.
Q: Will the entire warranty be voided or cancelled, if I do not operate or maintain
my new vehicle exactly as specified in the Operator’s Guide?
A: The warranty of the new vehicle cannot be VOIDED or CANCELLED if predelivered by an authorized Bombardier ATV dealer. However, if a particular
failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than is shown in the
Operator’s Guide, THAT failure may not be covered under warranty. This
includes service work performed by the customer, oil and filter change and
especially the critical adjustments such as the carburetor.
Q: Would you give some examples of abnormal use or strain, neglect or abuse
which may affect the limited warranty coverage?
A: These terms are general and overlap each other in some cases. Some specific examples may include: running the engine out of oil, operating the
vehicle with a broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail,
and so on. If you have any specific questions on operation or maintenance,
please contact an authorized Bombardier ATV dealer for advice.
Q: What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period?
A: The customer’s responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services, non-warranty repairs, accidents and collision damage, as well as oils,
and spark plugs, and incidental or consequential damages costs as explained in the warranty.
34
vmo2000_001b.fm Page 35 Friday, September 17, 1999 1:21 PM
Q: Are “Genuine” Bombardier replacement parts used in warranty repairs also
covered by the limited warranty coverage?
A: Yes. When installed by an authorized Bombardier ATV dealer, any “Genuine” Bombardier part used in warranty repairs assumes the remaining warranty that exists on the vehicle.
Q: If I sell my vehicle within the warranty period, will the new owner qualify for
the balance of the limited warranty coverage?
A: Yes, provided the re-sale has been registered with the manufacturer.
Q: How can I receive the best owner assistance?
A: The satisfaction and goodwill of the owners of Bombardier products are of
primary concern to your ATV dealer and Bombardier. Normally, any problems that arise in connection with the sales transaction or the operation of
your vehicle will be handled by your Dealer’s Sales or Service Departments.
It is recognized, however, that despite the best intentions of everyone concerned, misunderstandings will sometimes occur. Frequently, complaints
are the result of a breakdown in communications and can quickly be resolved by a member of the dealership management. If the problem already
has been reviewed with the Sales Manager or Service Manager, contact
the Dealer Principal himself or the General Manager.
We are always pleased to receive your comments on the Bombardier ATV.

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 honored by Bombardier 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.
