EBU35581
Be a responsible owner
As the vehicle’s owner, you are responsible for the safe and proper operation of your Yamaha
YXZ1000R. While understanding all parts of this manual are important for vehicle ownership, be
sure to read this chapter and the instructions in Chapter 7 before operating your Yamaha
YXZ1000R. Also use these two chapters and the labels on the vehicle to instruct new operators
and passengers. Do not allow anyone else to operate your vehicle or ride as a passenger if you
are unsure whether he or she is willing and able to follow these instructions.
Get to know your vehicle
This off-road vehicle will handle and maneuver differently from cars, ATVs, go-carts, golf-cars
and grounds-keeping vehicles. Follow these instructions to reduce your risk of an accident and
to reduce the risk of serious injury or death in the event of an accident.
2-1
U2HC7ME0.book Page 2 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
Before you operate your Yamaha YXZ1000R
 Prepare yourself and your passenger:
• This vehicle is intended for use only by an operator 16 or older with a valid motor vehicle license. Check country laws for minimum age requirements.
DRIVER
UNDER
16
• This vehicle is designed to carry the driver and one passenger. Never carry passengers in
the cargo bed.
• Both driver and passenger should wear seat belts properly.
• Both driver and passenger must be able to put both feet flat on the floorboard while seated
upright with their backs against the backrests. Passenger must be able to reach and hold
the passenger handhold in front of them.
• Both driver and passenger should wear an approved motorcycle helmet that fits properly.
Both driver and passenger should also wear eye protection (goggles or a face shield), gloves,
over-the-ankle boots, long-sleeved shirt or jacket, and long pants.
2-2
2
U2HC7ME0.book Page 3 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
• Do not drive or ride as passenger after using drugs or alcohol.
2
Prepare your vehicle
Perform the pre-operation checks each time you use the vehicle to make sure it is in safe operating condition. Failure to inspect or maintain the vehicle properly increases the possibility of an
accident or equipment damage. See page 5-1 for a list of pre-operation checks.
Prepare your load
Carrying heavy or over-sized loads can affect handling, stability, and cause the risk of overturns
or other accidents.
 Read “Loading” on page 6-9 before loading the cargo bed.
 Do not overload the vehicle or cargo bed.
 Refer to the labels on the vehicle for specific loading limits and recommended tire air pressure.
 Keep heavier objects and the load in general centered side to side, and as low and as far forward in the cargo bed as possible.
 Secure cargo so that it will not shift – a loose load could change handling unexpectedly or be
thrown forward and strike occupants.
 This vehicle is not designed to tow or pull objects. Towing a trailer or pulling another vehicle or
other object will affect handling, stability, and increase the risk of overturns and accidents.
Towing or pulling can also cause frame and vehicle damage.
2-3
U2HC7ME0.book Page 4 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
While using your Yamaha YXZ1000R
 Keep your body completely inside the vehicle at all times. Keep both hands on the steering
wheel except when operating the shift lever. Be sure the passenger is seated, belted, and holding onto the passenger handhold. Close doors before driving. Any part of your body (arms,
legs, and head) outside the vehicle can be struck by objects your vehicle is passing or crushed
by the vehicle itself in a rollover accident.
 Watch for branches, brush, or other hazards that could enter the vehicle.
 Abrupt maneuvers or aggressive driving, even on flat, open areas, can cause loss of control,
including rollovers. The YXZ1000R has higher ground clearance and other features to handle
rugged terrain, and, as a result, can overturn in situations where some other vehicles may not.
 Avoid rollovers:
• Use care when turning:
• Turning the steering wheel too far or too fast can result in a rollover.
• Avoid sideways sliding, skidding, or back-wheel sliding, and never do donuts.
• Slow down before entering a turn and avoid hard braking in a turn.
• When making tight turns from a stop or at slow speeds, avoid sudden or hard acceleration.
2-4
2
U2HC7ME0.book Page 5 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM

• Drive straight up and down inclines, not across them. If crossing a hill is unavoidable, drive
slowly and turn downhill immediately if you feel the vehicle may tip.
• Avoid paved surfaces. Turn gradually and go slowly if you must drive on pavement. This
vehicle is designed for off-road use only.
 If you think or feel that the vehicle may tip or roll, keep your body completely inside the protective structure of the vehicle:
• Brace yourself by pressing your feet firmly on the floorboard and keep a firm grip on the
steering wheel or passenger handhold.
• Do not put your hands or feet outside of the vehicle for any reason. Your arm or leg could be
crushed.
• Do not try to stop a vehicle tipover using your arm or leg.
 Do not operate this vehicle on any public street, road, or highway, even if dirt or gravel.
2-5
U2HC7ME0.book Page 6 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
 Do not operate the vehicle in fast-flowing water or water deeper than 39 cm (15 in). If you must
cross shallow, slow-moving water, choose your path carefully to avoid sharp drop-offs, large
rocks, or slippery surfaces. Operating this vehicle through deep or fast-flowing water can lead
to loss of control or overturn. To reduce your risk of drowning or other injuries, use care when
crossing through water.
 When loaded with cargo:
• Drive more slowly than normal and allow more room to stop.
• Avoid hills and rough terrain. Use caution when carrying a load up or downhill.
Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning
All engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a deadly gas. Breathing carbon monoxide can
cause headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, confusion, and eventually death.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas which may be present even if you do not
see or smell any engine exhaust. Deadly levels of carbon monoxide can collect rapidly and you
can quickly be overcome and unable to save yourself. Also, deadly levels of carbon monoxide
can linger for hours or days in enclosed or poorly-ventilated areas. If you experience any symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, leave the area immediately, get fresh air, and SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT.
 Do not run engine indoors. Even if you try to ventilate engine exhaust with fans or open windows and doors, carbon monoxide can rapidly reach dangerous levels.
 Do not run engine in poorly ventilated or partially enclosed areas such as barns, garages, or
carports.
2-6
2
U2HC7ME0.book Page 7 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
 Do not run engine outdoors where engine exhaust can be drawn into a building through openings such as windows and doors.
2
Genuine Yamaha Accessories
Choosing accessories for your YXZ1000R is an important decision. Genuine Yamaha Accessories, which are available only from a Yamaha dealer, have been designed, tested, and approved
by Yamaha for use on your YXZ1000R.
Many companies with no connection to Yamaha manufacture parts and accessories or offer other modifications for Yamaha vehicles. Yamaha is not in a position to test the products that these
aftermarket companies produce. Therefore, Yamaha can neither endorse nor recommend the
use of accessories not sold by Yamaha or modifications not specifically recommended by
Yamaha, even if sold and installed by a Yamaha dealer.
Aftermarket parts, accessories, and modifications
While you may find aftermarket products similar in design and quality to genuine Yamaha Accessories, recognize that some aftermarket accessories or modifications are not suitable because
of potential safety hazards to you or others. Installing aftermarket products or having other modifications performed to your YXZ1000R that change any of the vehicle’s design or operation characteristics can put you and others at greater risk of serious injury or death. You are responsible
for injuries related to changes in the vehicle.
2-7
U2HC7ME0.book Page 8 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
Aftermarket tires and rims
The tires and rims that came with your YXZ1000R were designed to match the performance capabilities and to provide the best combination of handling, braking, and comfort. Other tires,
rims, sizes, and combinations may not be appropriate. Refer to page 8-55 for tire specifications
and more information on replacing your tires.

Adjusting the rear shock absorber assemblies
EWB00411
WARNING
The rear shock absorber assemblies are
equipped with a spring preload adjusting nut,
a crossover adjusting nut (for YXZ10YMSH), a
rebound damping force adjusting screw (for
YXZ10YMXH), a high speed rebound damping force adjusting bolt (for YXZ10YMSH), a
low speed rebound damping force adjusting
screw (for YXZ10YMSH), a high speed compression damping force adjusting bolt, and a
low speed compression damping force adjusting screw.
These shock absorber assemblies contain
highly pressurized nitrogen gas. Read and
understand the following information before handling the shock absorber assemblies.
 Do not tamper with or attempt to open
the cylinder assemblies.
 Do not subject the shock absorber assemblies to an open flame or other high
heat source. This may cause the unit to
explode due to excessive gas pressure.
4-40
U2HC7ME0.book Page 41 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
due to small differences in production, the actual number of clicks or turns always represents the entire adjusting range. To obtain a
precise adjustment, it would be advisable to
check the number of clicks or turns of each
damping force adjusting mechanism and to
modify the specifications as necessary.
EWB04140
WARNING
 Suspension components become hot
during operation. Never touch the compression damping force adjusting bolt
and screw, the rebound damping force
adjusting bolt and screw, or the oil reservoir with your bare hand or skin until
suspension components have cooled.
 Always adjust the shock absorber assemblies on the left and right side to the
same setting. Uneven adjustment can
cause poor handling and loss of stability,
which could lead to an accident.
Spring preload
1. Loosen the locknut.
2. Turn the spring preload adjusting nut in
direction (a) to increase the spring preload and thereby harden the suspension,
and in direction (b) to decrease the spring
preload and thereby soften the suspension.

parts in the engine wear and polish themselves to achieve the correct operating clearances.
During this period, prolonged full-throttle operation or any condition that might result in
excessive engine heating must be avoided.
However, momentary (2–3 seconds maximum) full-throttle operation under load does
not harm the engine.
Each full-throttle acceleration sequence
should be followed with a substantial rest period for the engine, by cruising at lower r/min
so the engine can rid itself of the temporary
build-up of heat. If any abnormality is noticed
during this period, consult a Yamaha dealer.

Loading
Take extra precautions when driving with a
load. Turn gradually and drive more slowly
than you would without a load. The more
weight you carry, the slower you should go.
Although conditions vary, it is good practice
to keep the vehicle in a low gear when you are
carrying a heavy load. Follow these instructions and always use common sense and
good judgment when carrying a load.
Cargo bed
Use the hooks equipped on the cargo bed to
tie down loads. Make sure the load is securely
fastened down, centered in the cargo bed,

KNOW YOUR VEHICLE
BASIC GUIDE FOR SAFE USE
This off-road vehicle will handle and maneuver differently from cars, ATVs, go-carts, golfcars and grounds-keeping vehicles. The
YXZ1000R has higher ground clearance and
other features to handle rugged terrain, and,
as a result, can overturn in situations where
some vehicles may not. This would include
vehicles made primarily for pavement, roads,
improved paths, or grounds-keeping. If you
do not use care in maneuvering the
YXZ1000R, you can cause it to roll over even
on flat, open areas.
Doing things with a YXZ1000R that some
people do for thrills in other vehicles (such as
sideways sliding, skidding, back-wheel sliding, or donuts) could lead to side rollovers.
These rollovers can result in crushed limbs
and other serious injuries or death to drivers
or passengers.

Seat belts
Seat belts should be worn by the driver and
passenger. The driver must be sure that the
passenger is belted before driving.
 Be sure the seat belt is not twisted, is closefitting across the hips and chest, and is
latched securely.
 Do not wear the seat belt across the abdomen or stomach.
 Do not put the seat belt behind the back.
Failure to use seat belts properly may lead to
an increased likelihood and severity of injury.
An unbelted occupant may strike the interior
of the vehicle, the protective structure, or other objects in an accident or during operation.
You may also fall completely out or be partially ejected from the vehicle, which may lead to
being crushed between the ground and the
vehicle. Wearing the seat belt helps you remain in the vehicle – the doors and passenger
handhold are not a substitute for using a seat
belt.
Protective structure
The vehicle cage/frame provides a protective
structure that helps limit intrusions by branches or other objects and may reduce your risk
of injury in accidents. The protective structure
will not protect occupants in all rollovers or
accidents.
Body parts outside of vehicle can be struck
by passing objects or crushed during vehicle
rollover. Do not put your hands or feet outside
of the vehicle for any reason. Do not hold onto
the door, cage/frame or shoulder bolster.
Wear your seat belt and helmet.
If you think or feel that the vehicle may tip or
roll, do not put your hands or feet outside the
vehicle for any reason. You will not be able to
stop the vehicle from tipping over using your
body. Any part of your body (arms, legs, or
head) outside of the vehicle can be crushed
by the vehicle cage/frame.

1. Hold the latch plate as you pull the belt
across your lap and chest. Make sure the
belt is not twisted and is not caught on
any portion of the vehicle, your clothing,
or any equipment you are carrying.
2. If the latch plate is not positioned in the
correct location along the seat belt,
squeeze the latch plate ends together
along its long edges in order to more easily adjust its location up or down along
the length of the belt.
A crash can damage the restraint systems in
your vehicle. A damaged restraint system
may not properly protect the person using it,
resulting in serious injury or death in a crash.
To help make sure your restraint systems are
working properly after a crash, have them inspected and any necessary replacements
made as soon as possible.

Doors
The doors are designed to reduce the likelihood that you will stick your leg out to stop
the vehicle from tipping over or for any other
reason in a rollover. The doors may also reduce intrusion of objects into the occupant
area. Make sure the door is securely latched
before operation. Do not place your arm or
hand on the door during operation. Your hand
or arm may be struck by objects or crushed
against outside objects or the ground during
a rollover.
Passenger handhold
The passenger handhold is provided to grip
during operation to maintain proper position
and balance. Holding onto the handhold
helps to reduce the likelihood that the passenger puts a hand outside the vehicle if the
vehicle begins to tip.
The driver should make sure the passenger is
holding onto the handhold with both hands
before operating the vehicle.

you is outside the vehicle or protective
structure during a rollover.
 Help protect you if outside objects intrude
inside the vehicle during operation.
 Help protect you in the event of impact with
an obstacle or other vehicle.
Wear eye protection when operating or riding
in the vehicle to reduce the risk of a serious
accident or injury. Eye protection, such as a
face shield or goggles, may reduce the risk of
foreign material getting in your eyes and help
prevent loss of vision.
Practice for new Yamaha YXZ1000R users
Become familiar with the performance characteristics of the vehicle in a large, flat area
that is free of obstacles and other vehicles.
Practice controlling the accelerator pedal,
clutch, brakes, steering, and shift lever. Drive
at slow speeds with gradual acceleration and
smooth turns. Practice applying the accelerator pedal smoothly. Practice slowing down
before turning. Practice maintaining a steady
amount of throttle (accelerator pedal position)
through the turn. Avoid higher speeds until
you are thoroughly familiar with the operation
and handling of the vehicle. Remember, driving aggressively or making abrupt maneuvers
even on flat, open areas can cause side rollovers.
7-13
U2HC7ME0.book Page 14 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
Getting ready to ride
Perform the pre-operation checks on page
5-1. Follow the instructions on page 6-2 when
starting the engine.
Turning
Use care in turns — turning the steering wheel
too far or too fast can result in loss of control
or a rollover. Slow down before entering
turns. When making tight turns from a standstill or at slow speeds, avoid sudden or hard
acceleration. Driving aggressively or making
abrupt maneuvers even on flat, open areas
can cause side rollovers. Avoid sideways sliding, skidding, or back-wheel sliding, and never do donuts. If you feel the vehicle begin to
slide sideways or the back wheels slide during a turn, steer into the direction of the slide,
if possible, and gradually let off the accelerator pedal to regain directional control and
avoid rollover. For example, if you feel the
back of the vehicle start to slide to your right,
steer to the right.
Become familiar with the way the vehicle handles in the various drive modes. Start off with
two-wheel drive “2WD”, then four-wheel drive
“4WD”, and finally four-wheel drive with the
differential locked “DIFF LOCK”. Steering
may take more effort in four-wheel drive with
the differential locked “DIFF LOCK”. Also
practice driving in reverse.
TIP
Take the time to learn basic operation of the
vehicle before driving at higher speeds or attempting more difficult maneuvers.
7-14
7
U2HC7ME0.book Page 15 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
Braking
When slowing down or stopping, take your
foot off the accelerator pedal and press the
brake pedal smoothly. Abrupt or improper
use of the brakes can cause the tires to lose
traction, reducing control of the vehicle and
increasing the possibility of an accident.
Braking ability is affected by type of terrain. In
most cases, gradual application of the brakes
is more effective than abrupt braking, particularly on loose surfaces, such as gravel. Always allow for greater braking distance on
rough, loose, or slippery surfaces.
Engine compression braking will also help
slow the vehicle down. With the transmission
still in gear, take your foot off the accelerator
and allow the drivetrain and engine to absorb
vehicle speed. Downshift as necessary. Application of the brakes provides additional
stopping power.
If you think or feel that the vehicle may tip or
roll, keep your body completely inside the
protective structure of the vehicle:
 Brace yourself by pressing your feet firmly
on the floorboard and keep a firm grip on
the steering wheel or passenger handhold.
 Do not put your hands or feet outside of the
vehicle for any reason. Do not try to stop a
tipover using your arm or leg.
7
Accelerating
Avoid higher speeds and sudden or hard acceleration until you are thoroughly familiar
with the operation of your vehicle. Avoid sudden or hard acceleration in any turn. Never
drive faster than is safe for current conditions.
Shifting
Follow the instructions on pages 6-2 and 6-3
for shifting, downshifting, and shifting into reverse until you are thoroughly familiar with
each operation.
7-15
U2HC7ME0.book Page 16 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
Parking on a slope
The parking brake is located on the rear drive
shaft. When the drivetrain is in “2WD” mode,
only the rear wheels will be locked. Therefore,
switch the drive mode to “DIFF LOCK” before
stopping the engine to lock all four wheels
when parking. In addition to the parking
brake, leave the transmission in gear to help
prevent the vehicle from rolling.
If you park on a hill that is too steep, the vehicle may roll out of control. Never park on hills
that are so steep you cannot walk up them
easily. If you must park on an incline, follow
these instructions:
1. First, bring the vehicle to a stop and continue to apply the brake pedal.
2. Switch the drive mode to “DIFF LOCK”
and shift into first gear when parking uphill, or reverse gear when parking downhill.
Leaving the vehicle
Do not get out of the vehicle while the engine
is running. Take the key with when you leave
the vehicle. There is a serious risk of injury or
death because:
 Children or other unauthorized persons
may attempt to operate the vehicle.
 Objects tossed into the vehicle may strike
the shift lever and accidently engage the
transmission.
 The parking brake may not keep the vehicle
from moving.
Parking on a flat area
Even when parking on a seemingly flat area, it
is good practice to leave the transmission in
gear to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
Therefore, shift into first or reverse gear, stop
the engine and always apply the parking
brake.

set the parking brake.
5. Finally, get out of the vehicle and block
the front and rear wheels with rocks or
other objects.
Operation on different surfaces and
terrains
Go slowly and proceed with caution when operating on an unfamiliar surface or terrain.
This vehicle may handle differently in certain
types of terrains or on certain surfaces. You
may come upon hidden rocks, bumps, or
holes without enough time to react. To avoid
loss of control or rollover, always be alert to
changing surfaces or terrain when operating
the vehicle.
Your Yamaha YXZ1000R has higher ground
clearance and other features to handle rugged terrain, and as a result, can overturn in
situations where some vehicles may not.
Abrupt maneuvers or aggressive driving can
cause loss of control, including rollovers –
Loading
Be aware that vehicle load includes the total
combined weight of the operator, passenger,
any installed accessories, and any luggage or
cargo brought on board or stored in the cargo
bed. Make sure that the gross vehicle weight
(vehicle load plus weight of the vehicle itself)
never exceeds 1025 kg (2260 lb).

sense and remember that some hills are too
steep for you to climb or descend. Use proper
driving techniques to avoid rearward, forward, or sideways rollovers on hills and
slopes.
Drive straight up and down inclines, not
across them. If crossing a hill is unavoidable,
drive slowly. Turn downhill immediately if you
feel the vehicle may tip.
even on flat, open areas. These rollovers can
result in crushed limbs and other serious injuries or death to drivers or passengers.
When operating the vehicle in areas which require the use of a safety flag, mount the safety
flag pole on the flag pole bracket. See page
4-30.
If you think or feel the vehicle may tip or
roll:
 Brace yourself by pressing your feet firmly
on the floorboard and keep a firm grip on
the steering wheel or passenger handhold.
 Do not put your hands or feet outside of the
vehicle for any reason.
Hills
Choose carefully which hills you attempt to
climb or descend. Avoid hills with slippery
surfaces or those where you will not be able
to see far enough ahead of you. Use common

lease the brake and clutch, and then begin to
coast down the hill. Use engine braking as
much as possible, gently applying the brakes
when necessary.
over. Practice first on gentle slopes before attempting steeper hills. Always check the
terrain carefully before attempting any hill.
To climb a hill, you need traction, momentum,
and steady throttle. For more traction and
control for climbing steeper and/or rougher
slopes, shift into low gear and select “4WD”
or “DIFF LOCK”. Travel fast enough to maintain momentum, but not so fast that you cannot react to changes in the terrain as you
climb.
Slow down when you reach the crest of the
hill if you cannot see clearly what is on the
other side – there could be another person, an
obstacle, or a sharp drop-off.
If you start to lose traction or momentum
when climbing, and decide you will be unable
to continue, use the brakes to stop. Do not attempt to turn the vehicle around. With your
foot on the brake pedal, look behind you and
plan your descent. Press the clutch pedal and
shift the transmission into reverse so you can
use engine braking to slow your descent. Re-
Downhill
Check the terrain carefully before going
downhill. When possible, choose a path that
lets you drive your vehicle straight downhill.
Choose your path carefully and drive slowly
enough to be able to react to obstacles that
you encounter.
For more traction and control, before going
down steeper and/or rougher slopes, shift
into low gear and select “4WD” or “DIFF
LOCK”. Engine braking will help you go
downhill slowly. Go as slowly as possible. If
you begin to go too fast, apply the brakes
gently. Avoid hard application of the brakes,
which could cause the vehicle to slide.
7-19
U2HC7ME0.book Page 20 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
Pavement
This vehicle is designed for off-road use only.
Avoid paved surfaces. Turn gradually and go
slowly if you must drive on pavement.
If you are sliding or skidding, try to steer in the
direction the vehicle is sliding, to regain control. For example, if you feel the back of the
vehicle start to slide to your right, steer to the
right.
If you must turn on the hill to avoid an obstacle, do so slowly and carefully. If the vehicle
starts to tip, immediately steer in the downhill
direction if there are no obstacles in your
path. As you regain proper balance, gradually
steer again in the direction you want to go.
Water
If you must cross shallow, slow-moving water
up to the depth of the vehicle’s floorboard,
choose your path carefully to avoid sharp
drop-offs, large rocks, or slippery surfaces
that could cause the vehicle to overturn. Never operate through water deeper than 39 cm
(15 in) or fast-flowing water. Choose a path
where both your entrance into and exit point
from the water is a gradual incline. Determine
the water depth and currents before crossing.
Operating this vehicle through deep or fastflowing water can lead to loss of control or
overturn. To reduce your risk of drowning or
other injuries, use care when crossing
through water.
Rough terrain
Operation over rough terrain should be done
with caution.
 Look for and avoid obstacles that could
cause damage to the vehicle or could lead
to a rollover or accident.
 Do not drive in a way that will get the vehicle
airborne, as injury, loss of control, and
damage to the vehicle could occur.

U2HC7ME0.book Page 21 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
If you feel the vehicle begin to slide sideways
or the back wheels slide during a turn, steer
into the direction of the slide if possible, to regain directional control. For example, if you
feel the back of the vehicle start to slide to
your right, steer to the right.
Wet brakes may have reduced effectiveness.
After leaving the water, test your brakes. If
necessary, apply the brakes several times to
let friction dry out the linings.

After driving your vehicle in water, be sure
to drain the trapped water by removing the
check hoses at the bottom of the air filter
case. Wash the vehicle in fresh water if it
has been operated in salt water or muddy
conditions.
Brush or wooded areas
When operating in areas with brush or trees,
watch carefully on both sides and above the
vehicle for obstacles such as branches that
the vehicle might hit, causing an accident.
Watch for brush that might enter the vehicle
as you pass and strike you or the passenger.
Never hold onto the cage/frame. The passenger should always hold onto the passenger
handhold with both hands.
The muffler and other engine parts become
extremely hot during operation and remain
hot after the engine has stopped. To reduce
the risk of fire during operation or after leaving
the vehicle, do not let brush, grass and other
materials collect under the vehicle, near the
Loose terrain/slippery terrain
When driving on slippery terrain, including
wet, muddy, or icy conditions, as well as
loose gravel, be aware that you could begin
skidding or sliding. To avoid loss of control,
slow down and put the vehicle in four-wheel
drive before driving on a slippery surface and
plan your path to avoid making abrupt maneuvers.
7-21
U2HC7ME0.book Page 22 Monday, June 20, 2016 5:34 PM
If there is any question about your ability to
maneuver safely over the obstacle, you
should turn around if the ground is flat and
you have the room or back up until you find a
less difficult path.
muffler or exhaust pipe, or next to other hot
parts. Check under the vehicle after operating
in areas where combustible materials may
have collected. Do not idle or park the vehicle
in long dry grass or other dry ground cover.
Encountering obstacles
If you cannot go around an obstacle, such as
a fallen tree or a ditch, stop the vehicle where
it is safe to do so. Set the parking brake and
get out to inspect the area thoroughly. Look
from both your approach side and exit side. If
you believe you can continue safely, choose
the path that will allow you to get over the obstacle and at as close to a right angle as possible to minimize vehicle tipping. Go only fast
enough to maintain your momentum but still
give yourself plenty of time to react to changes in conditions.

Checking the spark plugs
The spark plug is an important engine component which should be periodically
checked, preferably by a Yamaha dealer.
Since heat and deposits will cause any spark
plug to slowly erode, the spark plugs should
be removed and checked in accordance with
the periodic maintenance chart for the emission control system. In addition, the condition
of the spark plugs can reveal the condition of
the engine.

The porcelain insulator around the center
electrode of each spark plug should be a medium-to-light tan color (the ideal color when
the vehicle is ridden normally), and all spark
plugs installed in the engine should have a
similar color. If any spark plug shows a distinctly different color, the engine could be operating improperly. Do not attempt to
diagnose such problems yourself. Instead,
have a Yamaha dealer check the vehicle.
If a spark plug shows signs of electrode erosion and excessive carbon or other deposits,
it should be replaced.

Checking the clutch pedal
As the brake pads wear, it is normal for the
brake fluid level to gradually go down. A low
brake fluid level may indicate worn brake
pads or brake system leakage; therefore, be
sure to check the brake pads for wear and the
brake system for leakage. A low clutch fluid
level may indicate clutch system leakage;
therefore, be sure to check the clutch system
for leakage. If the brake or clutch fluid level
goes down suddenly, have a Yamaha dealer
check and repair the vehicle before any further operation.
The clutch pedal should operate smoothly
and spring back to position when released.
When depressed, it should offer resistance
before reaching the floorboard. If the pedal
offers little resistance when depressed, or if
the transmission grinds gears when shifting,
have a Yamaha dealer check the vehicle.

For Europe only
The figures quoted are emission levels and
are not necessarily safe working levels. Whilst
there is a correlation between the emission
and exposure levels, this cannot be used reliably to determine whether or not further precautions are required. Factors that influence
the actual level of exposure of work-force include the characteristics of the work room,
the other sources of noise, etc. i.e. the number of machines and other adjacent processes, and the length of time for which an
operator is exposed to the noise. Also the
permissible exposure level can vary from
country. This information, however, will enable the user of the machine to make a better
evaluation of the hazard and risk.
