could result in loss of control of the DTV
resulting in severe injury or death.
Always ride with both hands on the
handlebars and both feet on the Deck
while operating the DTV.
RIDING THE DTV
TURNING
DTVs are different than many other types
of vehicles in that turning is controlled by
the weight of the rider shifting right or left.
Steps for proper turning: Practice these
steps on a flat, level, obstacle free surface.
1. Let off the throttle to slow down before
a turn. The vehicle decelerates very quickly
on its own due to the resistance of the
tracks. Use brakes if necessary.
Decelerating during a turn can easily
cause a loss of balance and control, so
make sure to slow down prior to turning .
2. Once slow enough to make the turn,
move body weight to the inside of the turn.
3. Look into the direction of the turn while
shifting weight to the inside of the turn.
4. Once turned in the proper direction
shift body weight back to the center of the
Deck.
FOR HIGHER SPEEDS OR SHARPER TURNS
Depending on the speed going into a turn,
the rider will need to adjust body weight
accordingly. For faster speeds the rider
will need to shift more body weight to the
inside of the turn. The important factor in
turning is doing so under control. Make
sure the capabilities of the rider can match
the maneuver. Practice turning on a
obstacle free dirt surface.
!
WARNING
Improper turning techniques could be
hazardous
The DTV could roll over or the rider could
be thrown from the DTV which could lead
to severe injury or death.
Follow the turning steps listed in this
owner’s manual, practice turning at slow
speeds on a flat obstacle free dirt surface.
!
WARNING
Braking while turning could be hazardous.
Braking while turning could cause the DTV
to roll over or slide into an object
which could result in severe injury or
death.
Before making a turn, slow down and
release the brake.

RIDING THE DTV
RIDING ON HILLS
Climbing a hill
1. Stop and evaluate the hill before
attempting to climb. Make sure the hill is
not too steep, the terrain is not loose or
slippery and that there are no obstacles.
2. Approach the hill at a steady speed
and maintain speed throughout the climb.
3. Shift body weight forward during the
climb.
4. Adjust the angle of the handle forward
using the handle lock release lever

is not too steep, the terrain is not loose or
slippery and that there are no obstacles.
2. Do not go down the hill on a sharp
angle, this could cause the DTV to flip over.
Instead, go straight down the hill.
3. Place body weight to the rear of the DTV.
4. Adjust the angle of the handle backward
using the handle lock release lever (page 5)
5. Drive downhill slowly. Apply just enough
throttle to keep the clutch engaged. This
will allow engine compression to help slow
the machine and prevent the DTV from
rolling freely downhill.
Traversing a hill
Traversing is an advanced maneuver due to
the fact that leaning uphill also causes
uphill steering simultaneously. Only
attempt traversing with the recommended
safety gear, and after you feel comfortable
enough with your riding skill level.
You are almost certain to meet obstacles
on most trails, if you meet an obstacle
that is too large, turn the DTV around and
do not attempt it. If an obstacle is not
too large and you have the knowledge and
ability (knowing the proper technique),
you can cross it by applying the following
steps:
1. Go slow while approaching the
obstacle.
2. Right before the obstacle give the DTV
some throttle and pull back on the
handlebars so the tracks go up over the
Obstacle.
3. Keep going slowly until the rear of the
track clears the obstacle.
!
WARNING
Traversing a hill improperly could be
hazardous.
Traversing a hill improperly could result in
loosing control and flipping the DTV over.
This could result in severe injury or death.
17
Never attempt to traverse a hill that is too
steep or has loose or slippery terrain.
