SECTION 1
American SportWorks welcomes you to its growing
family of new product owners. This Utility Vehicle “UTV” is
a light utility vehicle that has been designed with care and
built by skilled workers using quality materials. Proper setup, maintenance and safe operating practices will help you
get years of satisfactory use from this vehicle.
Safety First
American SportWorks is fully aware of the need for safe
operating procedures around all of our equipment. We
hope you will make a sincere effort to put safety above all
other priorities. The Utility Vehicle was designed and built
for work, recreation, and enjoyment; however, improper
and irresponsible operation could result in serious injury
or death. Since this is an off-road vehicle, operators will
seldom see the road safety and warning signs they are
accustomed to seeing on highways and public streets. This
places additional responsibility on the driver to operate
this vehicle well within the safe operational limits and
capabilities of the unit.
This manual has been prepared to instruct you in the safe
and responsible operation of your Utility Vehicle. Read and
abide by all safety alert information about this vehicle. If
you do not understand any part of this manual, contact your
local dealer for additional information and clarification. As
the operator of this piece of equipment, you are in complete
control. Only you can prevent an accident from happening.
Using This Manual
• Prior to any vehicle operation it is absolutely essential
that you read and comprehend each section in this manual
to develop an understanding of your vehicle and for your
safety. After reviewing this manual, store it in a dry and
easily accessible place for future reference.
• The Operator’s Section is designed to help familiarize
you with safety, assembly, operation, adjustments,
troubleshooting, and maintenance. Read this manual
and follow the recommendations to help ensure safe and
efficient operation.
• The information contained within this manual was current
at the time of printing. Some parts may change slightly to
assure you of the best performance.
• To order a new Operator’s or Parts Manual contact your
authorized dealer.

introduction
Terminology
Right-hand and left-hand as used in this manual are
determined by facing the direction the vehicle will travel
while in use unless otherwise stated.
Getting Acquainted with your Utility Vehicle
This off-road utility vehicle is a very unique vehicle
designed exclusively for off-road use. It is not designed,
properly equipped, or licensed to be safely operated on
public streets and highways. This vehicle is designed to
carry two people and a limited amount of gear or cargo
comfortably and safely over rough terrain that was only
accessible by ATV’s in the past.
Unlike ATV’s that have handlebar steering, Utility Vehicle’s
have a steering wheel with easy handling rack-and pinion
steering. The steering’s tight turning radius makes this
vehicle more maneuverable than most ATV’s. Its four
wheeled independent suspension, large diameter hiflotation tires and high center-frame ground clearance
adds up to excellent stability and a smooth ride over
rough terrain. Outstanding two wheeled rear traction drive
is achieved by using premium off-road ATV type tires in
tandem with the engine mounted directly in front of the rear
differential.
Also unlike an ATV’s one person “straddle saddle” seat,
the Utility Vehicle sports dual headrest cushioned seats
with seat belts mounted in a highly styled and protective
full length body. Two passengers can ride comfortably in
this vehicle protected from splashing water and mud. The
Brush Guard Bar mounted to the vehicle’s frame provides
protection against low hanging limbs and briars.
The Brush Guard Bar also provides a mounting system for
American SportWorks optional windshields, canopy tops
and weather enclosures. It also serves as a mounting base
for many other optional cargo racks, gun and bow racks.
The cargo bed is for transporting accessories such as
camping equipment, tree stands, hunting gear, and fishing
gear. A standard hitch mounting plate enables quick
installation of a rear hitch for pulling small trailers full of
supplies, tools, gear, and game.
introduction
The Utility Vehicle has some similarities to an ATV. Like
an ATV the Utility Vehicle has a short wheelbase, narrow
stance, and high center clearance all which provide for
narrow and difficult trail access. This combination of short
wheelbase and narrow stance also enables this vehicle to
be loaded in the back of most full to mid-sized pickups for
transport.
SECTION 1
Always use the serial and model number when
ordering parts for your Utility Vehicle. The
serial-number plate is located under the cargo
bed on the driver’s side just above the engine,
on the frame as shown in figure 1 below.
The Utility Vehicle’s ground compaction and is very gentle
on the ground and surrounding vegetation. The highly
energized four wheeled independent suspension system
provides an incredibly soft ride and outstanding stability
over difficult terrain. The engine is EPA certified and will
meet California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification
standards, when so equipped.
Owner Assistance
The safety information should be viewed by the owner
and the Warranty Registration card should be filled out
by the dealer at the time of purchase. The owner, upon
purchasing the vehicle, should have participated in a short
drivers training course with the dealer. This information is
necessary to provide you with quality customer service.
The parts on your Utility Vehicle have been specially
designed and should only be replaced with genuine
American SportWorks parts.
If customer service or repair parts are required contact a
American SportWorks dealer. They have trained personnel,
genuine repair parts and equipment specially designed to
repair American SportWorks products.

SECTION 2
Safe Operating Procedures
The safe operation of any machinery is a big concern to
all consumers. Your Utility Vehicle has been designed
with many built-in safety features. However, no one
should operate this vehicle before carefully reading this
Operator’s Manual. Also read all instructions noted on the
safety decals.
• Be familiar with all functions of this vehicle.
• Keep all bystanders away from this vehicle during
operation.
• Do not allow anyone to operate this vehicle who has not
fully read and comprehended this manual and who has not
been properly trained in the safe operation of this vehicle.
• Always be aware of and avoid tree limbs and brush that
have a potential of hitting and/or poking individuals riding
the vehicle. Serious body harm could result.
• Avoid sudden stops, starts, and turns.
• Always operate your vehicle at a safe speed that will allow
you to maintain control.
• Operator and passenger are responsible for deciding if
their situation warrants using seat belts.
• Do not exceed total payload capacity of this vehicle.
• Do not pull a trailer or implement exceeding 1100 pound
towing capacity or loss of control may result.
• Do not operate a vehicle with damaged or defective parts. Repair all damages and defective parts before putting
vehicle back in to service.
• Do not attach an implement, trailer or other device to the
hitch that will produce negative tongue weight.
• Do not allow anyone under 16 years of age to operate
this vehicle.
• Follow all towing instructions in this manual when towing
the UTV behind another vehicle. Do not tow vehicle faster
than 25 MPH.
• Operator must always use both hands on the steering
wheel.
• Do not use the vehicle as an anchor device.
• No riders allowed except in factory designed and supplied
seating.
• Operate this vehicle from the driver’s seat only.
• Do not leave this vehicle unattended with engine running.
• Do not dismount a moving vehicle as serious injury or
death could occur.
• Always operate vehicle with belt guard installed. Do not
leave pulleys and belts exposed.
• Do not touch engine, engine exhaust pipe and/or muffler
while they are hot.
• Keep hands, feet, long hair, clothing, and jewelry away
from moving parts and obvious pinch points to avoid
getting caught. • Wear snug-fitting clothing to avoid entanglement with
moving parts.
• Some conditions may warrant extra safety gear to be
worn such as safety helmets and/or goggles.
• Keep hands, arms, feet and all bodily appendages safely
inside the confines of the vehicle.
5
safety
• Beware, tow ropes, cables and chains can break when
pulling another vehicle or object causing serious injury or
death to anyone in line with the whipping action created
when they break. Never jerk when pulling, always ease
into a pull gently. Always stay clear of the tow line. Never
be in line with the tow line.
• Reduce speed when loaded with cargo. Heavy cargo load
takes longer to stop. • Reduce speed and payload on hilly, rough, wet, slick or
unstable ground.
• Always make turns at a speed that will maintain control
of vehicle. Never make turns at full speed. Reduce speed
when turning empty and reduce speed even more when
turning loaded with cargo or when pulling a cargo load. The heavier the cargo load, the slower the turn should be.
• Make sure all gear or cargo is properly secured and tied
down.
• Do not exceed 400 lbs. in cargo bed area (NOTE: 300lbs
with rear seat kit installed), or 900 lbs. total on this vehicle. • Do not mount a receiver hitch type carrier platform to the
vehicle.
• Do not load the Brush Guard Bar with heavy equipment. Rollover could result from such loading.
safety
SECTION 2
• The Brush Guard Bar is not certified ROPS (Roll Over
Protection System). Always avoid rollovers.
• When descending hills or slopes apply steady pressure to
the foot brake to avoid potential of freewheeling or runaway.
• Do not operate this vehicle on highways, public roads, or
where it may be a hazard to faster moving traffic.
• Never allow vehicle to coast or free wheel in neutral or
loss of control may result.
• Do not operate this vehicle while drinking or under the
influence of alcohol and drugs.
• If your vehicle loses power and stops on a hill, immediately
engage the foot brake and back slowly down the hill
maintaining a straight downhill line of travel. Do not attempt
to turn the vehicle sideways on the hill or a rollover could
result.
• Never attempt wheelies, jumps, or other stunts. Never
drive recklessly. Always operate your vehicle at a safe
speed that will allow you to maintain control.
• Never use vehicle for racing and never modify the engine
to exceed 25 MPH vehicle speed.
• Never modify any parts on the vehicle without authorization. Unauthorized modifications will void warranty to all parts
directly and indirectly affected by the modification.
• Always make sure the vehicle pathway is clear of all
objects when backing up. Know location of personnel
around vehicle and especially location of small children. Take extra precautions when rear view is hindered by
cargo.
• Always park on level ground, stop engine, set parking
brake and remove ignition key before leaving the vehicle. Chock tires if condition warrants.
• Use extreme caution when cresting hills or when visibility
is limited. Proceed slowly until you are sure trail conditions
immediately ahead are safe.
• Keep front wheels straight when cresting hills or going
over bumps.
• Do not stop, start suddenly or over accelerate on hills. Loss of control and rollover could result.
• Use extreme caution when descending hills or running
on loose slippery surfaces. Towing, braking, and tractive
capabilities are greatly diminished.
• Do not operate vehicle on 15 degree slopes or steeper.
• Avoid changing direction or making sharp steering
corrections on slopes or rollover may occur.
• If this vehicle begins to tip when crossing a slope, turn the
front wheels downhill to regain stability and control.
• When crossing a slope on soft terrain, turn the front
wheels slightly uphill and maintain a constant speed to
maintain a straight line of travel.
• When traveling at night always use your headlights
and reduce speed according to visibility, trail, and terrain
conditions.
• Avoid water crossings when possible and never cross
a body of water where depth is unknown. Loss of power
will occur if the drive belt becomes submerged or wet. Unnecessary crossing of streams and waterways erodes
shore line and damages water-born habitat. If you must
cross, do it at a point where banks are not steep and
proceed at a slow and steady speed.
• Front bumper and brush guards are not designed as
pusher bars. Do not attempt to push other vehicles or
implements or damage may result.
• When refueling use an (UL) approved non-metallic
container that has no screen or filter. Set the container on
the ground before fueling to eliminate static discharge and
do not use Methanol fuel.
• Do not smoke or use electrical devices including cell
phones while refueling.
• Always maintain proper tire inflation.
• Always disconnect the negative battery terminal before
making adjustments to the vehicle electrical system or
welding on this vehicle.
• Battery fumes are explosive. A spark will ignite battery
fumes. Wear a face shield when charging or jumping
a battery. Follow all battery safety rules outlined in this
manual.
• Avoid battery acid spills. Do not get battery acid on eyes,
face, or other body parts. Flush eyes and other body parts
immediately with water for at least 15 minutes if battery
acid has gotten on them.
• Always check wheel lug nut torque values two hours after
initial operation and two hours after each tire repair and/or
replacement. Routinely check lug nut torque valves every
100 hours of operation.

SECTION 5
Fuel Type
The fuel tank is located under seat. Engine Fuel Valve Lever
Refer to Figure 5-1
390cc & 653cc Fuel Capacity is 5 Gal. The engine fuel valve opens and closes the passage
between the fuel tank and carburetor. Leave fuel valve
lever in the OFF position when the engine is not in use to
prevent carburetor flooding and reduce possibility of fuel
leakage into the cylinder cavity and engine oil reservoir. Turn fuel valve lever to the ON position when running the
engine.
265cc Fuel capacity is 1.6 Gal.
When filling the fuel tank, place the gear shift in forward
or reverse, set the park brake, turn off the engine, and
remove ignition key. Clean dirt from around the fuel tank
cap, remove cap, and begin filling. When finished, screw
the cap back on securely and wipe up any spilled gasoline. Use regular unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 87
or higher.
IMPORTANT: Never use methanol, gasoline containing
methanol, or gasohol containing more than 10% ethanol
because the fuel system could be damaged. Do NOT mix
oil with gasoline.
Using a fuel stabilizer/conditioner in the vehicle can provide
benefits such as:
* Keeps gasoline fresh during storage of 90 days or less. For longer storage, drain the fuel tank.
* Cleans the engine during operation.
* Eliminates gum-like varnish build-up in the fuel system.
FUEL VALVE
Add the correct amount of gas stabilizer/conditioner to the
gas. Follow the gas stabilizer/conditioner manufacturer’s
directions for best results.
See engine operator’s manual for the following:
* Draining the fuel tank.
* Checking fuel line for cracks and leaks.
* Engine fuel valve lever.

Fuel in the Cylinder Cavity
In the event that the fuel valve is left open while transporting
or towing this Utility Vehicle it is possible that fuel has
leaked down into the cylinder cavity. If this has occurred
the engine will not start. With the cylinder cavity full of fuel
the engine will feel like it has “locked up”. Below are the
proper steps to follow if your Utility Vehicle engine seems
to have fuel in the cylinder cavity.
WARNING
Use EXTREME CAUTION when
performing the activity below.
Gasoline is EXTREMELY FLAMABLE!

Move the vehicle to a well ventilated area, away from
sparks or flame.
Park Vehicle on a level surface, set park brake, turn off
ignition switch, and remove switch key.
Next, remove the wire connected to the spark plug. And
remove the spark plug from the engine. (See Figure
6-1) (Spark Plug Wrench supplied with Operator’s
Manual)
WARNING: Stand away from the spark plug hole when
performing step 5. Fuel can spray several feet.
Wearing eye protection, slowly pull the recoil start
grip handle (See Figure 6-2) in an upward motion. This
should force the fuel out of the cylinder cavity through
the spark plug hole. Caution: This gasoline spraying
out of the cylinder cavity is very flammable, use extreme
caution and make sure there are no sparks or flames
nearby.
Repeat step 3 until only air escapes out of the spark
plug hole.
Properly replace the spark plug back into the cylinder
head, move the vehicle away from any spilled fuel. If
there is fuel on the vehicle itself, allow for it to evaporate
before continuing. Connect the plug wire. Your Utility Vehicle is now ready
to start.

•
Lubricate the cables. Behind the dash board there are
two cables attached to the gear selector lever. Slide the
rubber dust caps up the cable. Drip or spray penetrating
oil into the cable housing while working the lever. Do
this several times as the oil soaks into the housing. Test
the vehicle. If this did not help move to the next step.
Remove the center console (with cup holders). Find the
shifter cables and cut the plastic ties that fasten them to
the frame tube. Over tight cable ties can cause the
