INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for choosing Tatou® 4S, a Camoplast ATV Track
System, (hereinafter referred to as the "System"). You have
made the right choice. This system will provide you with all the
traction, performance and durability you require for recreational
or work purposes and allows for year-round operation. This
track system for quads (hereinafter referred to as the "ATVs")
provides exceptional floatation with very low ground pressure.
Its strong lightweight steel frame (30 kg), its internal sprockets,
adapted to the vehicle’s capacity, and its track, specifically
designed for ATVs, make it the best system on the market.
USING THE ATV WITH TRACKS
The driver must remain vigilant and cautious at all times.
Powder snow and mud can hide dangerous obstacles.

The driving characteristics of your ATV will change with the
installation of the System. It is important to take the time to
become familliar with the Systems.
Before each ride make sure that all the wheels and moving
parts of the system are free and that they are not frozen or
stuck on to the frame.
It is the driver’s responsibility to verify that the air intake of
the vehicle is well adapted to weather conditions and is not
blocked by snow accumulation.
When travelling in groups, people driving behind vehicles
equipped with a track system should by warned, as the
tracks can propel dangerous objects. Be especially
cautious on “rocky” trails.
Adapt your driving style to surrounding conditions
(weather, traffic, etc.) and to your driving abilities.
An ATV equipped with the System must never be used for
the following activities: races, rallies, jumps, stunts,
acrobatics or any other extreme applications.
Allow for a greater braking distance and periodically apply
the brakes while driving to prevent ice buildup on brake
components.
USING THE ATV WITH TRACKS


Always follow the ATV manufacturer's safety rules and
regulations
regarding,
for
exemple
passengers
transportation, maximum loads, ect.
It is the driver’s responsibility to follow the recommended
schedules maintenance further described in this manual.

HINTS AND TIPS
HINTS AND TIPS
Before leaving for an excursion, make sure you have the
following within arms reach : 12 mm, 14mm, 16 mm, 17 mm,
19mm and 30 mm wrenches, one axe, one shovel, one tow
cable, a lifting jack and one adjustable wrench.
Generally, the slower you go, the better the traction will be.
For riding or excursions in unknown, or remote terrain, make
sure you have a cellular phone or satellite phone, a first aid kit
and spare parts in your possession.
When driving off trails, always be cautious to the presence of
hidden obstacles.
When driving in deep snow, do not intentionally spin the track
(tracks keep on turning while the vehicule does not).This could
cause the vehicle to get stuck.
GENERAL INFORMATION
All figures, information or photos presented in this document
are up to date at the time of publication. However, they may
change without notice.
Read and follow indications of the ATV user manual and
installation guidelines carefully. Their contents remains
applicable after installating of the System.
This document should be read by every person who drives the
ATV equipped with the System.
This document is an integral part of the System. Pass it along to
any new System owner.
Consult legal authorities where you drive your ATV equipped
with the System before usage to ensure that you respect all
applicable laws and regulations.
ATV track systems are designed to reduce ground pressure and
increase vehicle traction. However, during normal operating
conditions, vehicle speed will be reduced, compared to a
wheeled vehicle.

SAFETY
SAFETY
This guide uses the following symbols to emphasize particular
information :
 WARNING
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not
avoided, could result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION: Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if
not avoided, may result in damage to vehicle components.
NOTE: Indicates supplementary information.
USER NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER
The Tatou® 4S System was initially designed to be used in
winter conditions and was then adapted to be used in fall and
spring conditions.
This document holds important information regarding driving an
ATV equipped with the Tatou® 4S System by Camoplast. It is
mandatory that every user takes the time to carefully read,
understand and then consult this reference manual and user
guide as well as the ATV owner's manual as needed. When
purchasing either a new or used track System, the user must
obtain all documentation related to the System, including
manuals and guides related to the ATV on which the System is
installed. If need be, contact the Camoplast products dealer
nearest to you to obtain any additional information. You may
also consult the Camoplast Web site at www.camoplast.com
and call our technical support line at 1 866-533-0008 or by
email at [email protected]
Camoplast believes that there are certain risks related to the
installation and use of the System. Our experience shows that
the System is safe. However, the user must be aware of the
risks related with driving an ATV with the particularities of this
type of System. The ATV driver must, at all times, respect all
applicable laws and regulations, the indications of the System
manufacturer and the indications from the vehicle manufacturer
fixed by law, namely when age restrictions exist and ATV base
equipment is required (headlights, flashers and brake lights,
rearview mirror, etc.). The user must always wear adequate
safety equipment, such as a helmet, safety glasses (or visor),
protective clothing, boots and gloves. It is understood that
driving while impaired or intoxicated presents a danger for the
ATV user and others and is against the law.
4
USER NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER
The System consists of many moving parts, including
transmission wheels. If an object lodges itself or becomes
jammed into the System and blocks the track, it is mandatory to
stop the engine and the vehicle and apply the security brake
before removing object said. By avoiding to do so, the user
exposes himself to sudden movement of the ATV or to
breakage of a part or component coming from the System,
which could cause severe injuries. It is also very important to
wear full length clothing and always avoid hanging or stringy
accessories.
Driving an ATV equipped with such a System requires particular
precautions and a knowledge of proper driving techniques of
such vehicles. An evaluation by the user of the conditions and
terrain (state of the ground, grade of hill, density of snow, etc.)
is equally essential. An ATV equipped with a System cannot
compete and/or be used to perform stunts, acrobatics or other
exploits, as these could result in loss of control or severe injuries.
Insufficient knowledge of an ATV during down hill riding, climbs
and crossing of obstacles and turns can result in tipping or roll
over, and can cause severe injuries.
Carrying a passenger, a load or attaching a tow can cause the
ATV to be less stable, and affect driveability. Unless otherwise
prescribed by law and by the ATV manufacturer, you must not
carry a passenger, loads or tow any objects.
The installation of a System:
• Increases ground clearance.
• Changes the center of gravity.
• Increases the ATV width and weight.
• Reduces ground pressure.
These parameters will effectively change driving characteristics
of an ATV equipped with the System.
Consequentially, it is highly recommended that the user adapts
his driving style in function of the new characteristics mentioned
above. The driver must always use caution when he crosses
obstacles, circulates through narrow paths, meets vehicles
coming in the opposing direction, etc.
As it was designed, the System will considerably reduce the
ATV top speed and can falsify the speedometer. Generally, the
System transmission wheel diameter is less than that of the tire.
Therefore, the vehicle speed will be less than that actually displayed. Whether the ATV is equipped or not with the System,
users must always adapt the speed to actual driving conditions.
Users must never exceed speed limits or drive faster than their
5
USER NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER
capacities allow. Excessive speed remains one of the main
causes of severe accidents on ATVs.
Camoplast is proud to offer ATV conversion kits within its wide
range of products. ATV Track Systems are not only reliable, but
safe. However, there are risks inherent to driving an ATV
equipped with the System. It is therefore very important that
any driver familiarizes himself with proper driving techniques of
an ATV equipped with a System, and that he adapts his driving
to his level of experience and continually evaluates operating
conditions and terrain to safely and efficiently make the best of
these Camoplast ATV track systems.

DANGEROUS SITUATIONS
DANGEROUS SITUATIONS
When using a vehicle equipped with track systems, it is
important to respect the following safety recommendations. As
driving a vehicle equipped with track systems is different from
driving a vehicle with wheels, it is strongly recommended that
the safety guidelines provided below are followed to prevent
any accidents and serous malfunctions that could affect the
occupants, the vehicle or to the track systems for occurring.
NOTE: Non-compliance with usage recommendations can lead to a
warranty claim refusal.
Jumping
 WARNING
It is strictly forbidden to jump with vehicles equipped with
track systems. These systems were not designed to carry
out this type of operation.
7
DANGEROUS SITUATIONS
Steep descents
 WARNING
It is not advisable to change direction during steep
descents. This can lead to a serious malfunction of the
ATV’s steering system and track systems. During a steep
descent, it is advisable to keep the handlebar in a forward
direction and to begin turning when the ATV is on flat
ground, thus to avoid subjecting the components of the
vehicle and the system to any high stress.
8
DANGEROUS SITUATIONS
Descending and being stuck in reverse
 WARNING
If the rear track systems get stuck in the snow, avoid
moving or towing the vehicle in reverse to ease it from its
position , as this could lead to a malfunction of the
systems. If possible, move it in the forward direction to free
it from the snow. It is advisable to remove the snow from
the top of the rear track systems and to compact it using
your feet, behind the systems to dislodge the track.
Shovelling remains the best alternative in this situation.
9
DANGEROUS SITUATIONS
Towing a vehicle out of the snow
 WARNING
If your vehicle must be towed out of the snow, never tow it
in the direction in which it sank. Tow the vehicle in the
direction of the trail it left as it became stuck.
10
DANGEROUS SITUATIONS
Loading a vehicle into and unloading it from a truck
 WARNING
When a vehicle is being loaded into or unloaded from a
truck box, it is extremely important to ensure that the front
tracks do not grip the locking gudgeons of the truck’s
tailgate as this could cause them to tear.
11
DANGEROUS SITUATIONS
Driving over an obstacle
Driving over a steep ridge
 WARNING
It is not advisable to attempt to drive over an obstacle, such
a tree trunk, a big rock or a steep ridge that could lodge
itself between the front and the rear track systems and
immobilize the vehicle. The best option remains to bypass
this type of obstacle.

ADJUSTMENTS
Figure 7
Basic Tuning (front track systems):
• An adjustment of more than 254 mm measured with
the flat bar, gives easier steering with wobbling effect at
high speed.
• An adjustment of less than 254 mm measured with the
flat bar, gives harder steering and more stability at high
speed.
• More
spring
recommended.

(item 3 on Figure 10) and unscrew the rod to obtain
19 mm max. of visible threads. Re-tighten the jam nut.
Figure 10
Basic tuning (rear track systems):
• More gap at the rubber bushing gives better obstacle
climb and flotation capacity on powder snow while
moving forward.
• Compressing the rubber bushing gives better obstacle
climb and flotation capacity while moving in reverse in
deep and powder snow application.
• More spring preload (compression) gives better
obstacle climb and flotation capacity while moving
forward.
• Less spring preload (compression) gives better
obstacle climb and flotation capacity while moving in
reverse.
23
ADJUSTMENTS

Wheel
Verify the wear of the wheels especially on the interior guidance
strip (figure 21). If the internal plastic structure is visible, the
rubber coating is worn and the wheel must be replaced (as illustrated figure 22-2), or when the wear of the wheel’s rolling band
reaches a thickness of 17 mm, figure 23 (20.5 mm when new).
A wheel that is excessively worn will not offer enough support
for the track's guidance.

Verify the wear of the track guide by measuring the width of the
guide. If dimensions of the guide illustrated in figure 24 are
lower than 5 mm, at any place, replace the part. If the guidance
strip is worn so that the concave shape is no longer visible,
replace the part. An overly worn track guide could prematurely
wear the other components of guidance of the system.
Figure 24
Track
Verify the wear of the track by inspecting the rolling path, the
driving lug, the profile and the internal and external condition of
the track's carcass. Make sure that the track’s internal structure
are not visible at cuts or worn area. Too much wear could cause
damage to the wheels and to the track's guide.
Sprocket
Check the wear of the sprocket by measuring the part as illustrated on figure 25. Replace the part when dimensions are
lower than 19 mm. An excessive wear could lower the efficiency
of the drive of the track and reduce the system’s performance.
