SAFETY INFORMATION
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 riding 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 this manual and all labels carefully and follow the operating procedures described.
● Never operate an ATV without proper training or instruction. Take a Training Course. Beginners should receive training from a certified instructor. Contact an authorized ATV dealer or call
1-800-887-2887 to find out about the training courses nearest you.
● Always follow the age recommendation:
- A child under 16 years old should never operate an ATV with engine size greater than 90cc.
● Never allow a child under age 16 to operate an ATV without adult supervision, and never allow
continued use of an ATV by a child if he or she does not have the abilities to operate it safely.
● Never carry a passenger on an ATV.
● Always avoid operating 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.

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 this manual.
Always keep both hands on the handlebars and both feet on the footboards 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 this manual. 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.

Always follow proper procedures for climbing hills as described in this manual. 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. Never go over the top of
a hill at high speed.
Always follow proper procedures for going down hills and for braking on hills as described in
this manual. 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 this manual.
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 this manual 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. Maintain a
steady speed when climbing a hill. If you stall or roll backwards, follow the special procedure for
braking described in this manual. Dismount on the uphill side or to a side if pointed straight uphill. Turn the ATV around and remount, following the procedure described in this manual.
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 this manual.

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 or sliding out of control.
Never operate an ATV in fast flowing water or in water deeper than that recommended in this
manual. 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 linings.
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 of tires specified in this manual.
Always maintain proper tire pressure as described in this manual.
Never modify an ATV through improper installation or use of accessories.
Never exceed the stated load capacity for an ATV. Cargo should be properly distributed and
securely attached. Reduce speed and follow instructions in this manual for carrying cargo or
pulling a trailer. Allow greater distance for braking.

Engine break-in
There is never a more important period in the
life of your machine than the period between
zero and 20 hours.
For this reason, we ask that you carefully read
the following material. Because the engine is
brand new, you must not put an excessive
load on it for the first several hours of running.
During the first 20 hours, the various parts in
the engine wear and polish themselves to the
correct operating clearances.
During this period, prolonged full throttle operation or any condition which 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.
0–10 hours:
Avoid continuous operation above half throttle. Allow a cooling off period of five to ten minutes after every hour of operation. Vary the
speed of the machine from time to time. Do
not operate it at one set throttle position.

Accessories
Accessories can affect the handling and control of your ATV. Keep the following in mind
when considering an accessory or operating
an ATV which has accessories.
● Choose only accessories designed for your
ATV. Your Yamaha dealer has a variety of
genuine Yamaha accessories. Other accessories may also be available on the
market. However, it is not possible for
Yamaha to test all non-Yamaha accessories, nor have any control over the quality or
suitability of them. Choose a genuine
Yamaha accessory, or one that is equivalent in design and quality.
●
●
6-10
Accessories should be rigidly and securely
mounted. An accessory which can shift position or come off while you are riding could
affect your ability to control the ATV.
Do not mount an accessory where it could
interfere with your ability to control the ATV.
Examples include (but are not limited to) a
heavy or bulky object attached to the handlebars which could make steering difficult,
an accessory that limits your ability to move
around on the seat, or one that limits your
view.
Use extra caution when riding an ATV with
accessories. The ATV may handle differently than it does without accessories.

Loading
Cargo or a trailer can change the stability and
handling of an ATV.
You must use common sense and good judgment when carrying cargo or towing a trailer.
Keep the following points in mind:
● Never exceed the weight limits shown. An
overloaded ATV can be unstable.
●
MAXIMUM LOADING LIMIT
● Vehicle loading limit (total weight of
cargo, rider and accessories, and
tongue weight): 210 kg (463 lb)
● Front carrier: 40 kg (88 lb)
● Rear carrier: 80 kg (176 lb)
● Storage box: 2.0 kg (4.4 lb)
● Trailer hitch:
Pulling load (total weight of trailer
and cargo): 500 kgf (1,102 lbf)
Tongue weight (vertical weight on
trailer hitch point): 15 kgf (33 lbf)
●
●
●
6-11
Do not exceed the maximum tongue
weight. You can measure tongue weight
with a bathroom scale. Put the tongue of
the loaded trailer on the scale with the
tongue at hitch height. Adjust the load in the
trailer, if necessary, to reduce the weight on
hitch.
If you are carrying cargo and towing a trailer, include the tongue weight in the maximum vehicle load limit.
Load cargo on the carrier as close to the
center of the vehicle as possible. Put cargo
at the rear of the front carrier and at the
front of the rear carrier. Center the load
from side to side.
Tie down cargo securely to the carriers.
Make sure cargo in the trailer cannot move
around. A shifting load can cause an accident.
Make sure the load does not interfere with
controls or your ability to see where you are
going.
EE.book Page 12 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
●
●
●
●
Ride more slowly than you would without a
load. The more weight you carry, the slower you should go.
Allow more braking distance. A heavier vehicle takes longer to stop.
Avoid making sharp turns unless at very
slow speeds.
Avoid hills and rough terrain. Choose terrain carefully. Added weight affects the stability and handling of the ATV.
WARNING
POTENTIAL HAZARD
Overloading this ATV or carrying or towing cargo improperly.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
Could cause changes in vehicle handling which could lead to an accident.

With the engine idling, return the starter
(choke) to the closed position and shift the
drive select lever into the forward position.
Then release the parking brake. Apply the
throttle slowly and smoothly. The centrifugal
clutch will engage and you will start to accelerate. If the throttle is applied too abruptly, the
front wheels may lift off the ground resulting in
a loss of directional control. Avoid higher
speeds until you are thoroughly familiar with
the operation of your ATV.
Select a large, flat area off-road to become familiar with your ATV. Make sure that this area
is free of obstacles and other riders. You
should practice control of the throttle, brakes,
and turning techniques in this area before trying more difficult terrain.
Always avoid riding on paved surfaces: the
ATV is designed for off-road use only, and
handling maneuvers are more difficult to perform on pavement.
Set the parking brake and follow the instruction on page 6-1 to start the engine. Once it
has warmed up you are ready to begin riding
your ATV. Remember that the engine and exhaust pipe will be hot when riding and afterwards; do not allow skin or clothing to come in
contact with these components.
When slowing down or stopping, release the
throttle and apply the brakes smoothly and
evenly. Improper use of the brakes can cause
the tires to lose traction, reducing control and
increasing the possibility of an accident.

EE.book Page 22 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
TURNING YOUR ATV
To achieve maximum traction while riding offroad, the two rear wheels are mounted solidly
on one axle and turn together at the same
speed. Therefore, unless the wheel on the inside of the turn is allowed to slip or lose some
traction, the ATV will resist turning. A special
turning technique must be used to allow the
ATV to make turns quickly and easily. It is essential that this skill be learned first at low
speed.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Always follow proper procedures for
turning as described in this Owner’s
Manual.
Practice turning at low speeds before attempting to turn at faster speeds. Do not
turn at speeds too fast for your skills or
the conditions.
As you approach a curve, slow down and begin to turn the handlebars in the desired direction. As you do so, put your weight on the
footboard to the outside of the turn (opposite
your desired direction) and lean your upper
body into the turn. Use the throttle to maintain
an even speed through the turn. This maneuver will let the wheel on the inside of the turn
slip slightly, allowing the ATV to make the turn
properly.
WARNING
POTENTIAL HAZARD
Turning improperly.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
ATV could go out of control, causing a
collision or overturn.
7-22
EE.book Page 23 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
Once you have learned this technique you
should be able to perform it at higher speeds
or in tighter curves.
Improper riding procedures such as abrupt
throttle changes, excessive braking, incorrect
body movements, or too much speed for the
sharpness of the turn may cause the ATV to
tip. If the ATV begins to tip over to the outside
while negotiating a turn, lean more to the inside. It may also be necessary to gradually let
off on the throttle and steer to the outside of
the turn to avoid tipping over.
Remember: Avoid higher speeds until you are
thoroughly familiar with the operation of your
ATV.
This procedure should be practiced at slow
speed many times in a large off-road area
with no obstacles. If an incorrect technique is
used, your ATV may continue to go straight. If
the ATV doesn’t turn, come to a stop and then
practice the procedure again. If the riding surface is slippery or loose, it may help to position more of your weight over the front wheels
by moving forward on the seat.

EE.book Page 24 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
CLIMBING UPHILL
Use proper riding techniques to avoid vehicle
overturns on hills. Be sure that you can maneuver your ATV well on flat ground before attempting any incline and then practice riding
first on gentle slopes. Try more difficult climbs
only after you have developed your skill. In all
cases avoid inclines with slippery or loose surfaces, or obstacles that might cause you to
lose control.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Never operate the ATV on hills too steep
for the ATV or for your abilities. Practice
on smaller hills before attempting large
hills.
It is important when climbing a hill to make
sure that your weight is transferred forward on
the ATV. This can be accomplished by leaning forward and, on steeper inclines, standing
on the footboards and leaning forward over
the handlebars.
WARNING
POTENTIAL HAZARD
Operating on excessively steep hills.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
The vehicle can overturn more easily on
extremely steep hills than on level surfaces or small hills.

SLIDING AND SKIDDING
Care should be used when riding on loose or
slippery surfaces since the ATV may slide. If
unexpected and uncorrected, sliding could
lead to an accident.
If the rear wheels of your ATV start to slide
sideways, control can usually be regained (if
there is room to do so) by steering in the direction of the slide. Applying the brakes or accelerating is not recommended until you have
corrected the slide.
To reduce the tendency for the front wheels to
slide in loose or slippery conditions, positioning your weight over the front wheels will
sometimes help.
7-38
EE.book Page 39 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
With practice, over a period of time, skill at
controlled sliding can be developed. The terrain should be chosen carefully before attempting such maneuvers, since both stability
and control are reduced. Bear in mind that
sliding maneuvers should always be avoided
on extremely slippery surfaces such as ice,
since all control may be lost.
WARNING
POTENTIAL HAZARD
Skidding or sliding improperly.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
You may lose control of this ATV. You
may also regain traction unexpectedly,
which may cause the ATV to overturn.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
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
or sliding out of control.

8-16
Inspection
The spark plug is an important engine component and is easy to inspect. The condition of
the spark plug can indicate the condition of
the engine.
The ideal color on the white insulator around
the center electrode is a medium-to-light tan
color for an ATV that is being ridden normally.
Do not attempt to diagnose such problems
yourself.
EE.book Page 17 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
Instead, take the ATV to a Yamaha dealer.
You should periodically remove and inspect
the spark plug because heat and deposits will
cause the spark plug to slowly break down
and erode. If electrode erosion becomes excessive, or if carbon and other deposits are
excessive, you should replace the spark plug
with the specified plug.
Specified spark plug:
DR8EA (NGK)
a. Spark plug gap
2. Clean the surface of the spark plug gasket and its mating surface, and then wipe
off any grime from the spark plug
threads.
3. Install the spark plug and tighten it to the
specified torque.
Installation
1. Measure the electrode gap with a wire
thickness gauge and, if necessary, adjust
the gap to specification.
Spark plug gap:
0.6–0.7 mm (0.02–0.03 in)
Tightening torque:
Spark plug:
17.5 Nm (1.75 m·kgf, 12.7 ft·lbf)
8-17
EE.book Page 18 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
NOTE:
If a torque wrench is not available when you

Yamaha dealer replace it.
Troubleshooting
Although Yamaha machines receive a rigid inspection before shipment from the factory,
trouble may occur during operation. Any problem in the fuel, compression, or ignition systems can cause poor starting and loss of
power. The troubleshooting chart describes a
quick, easy procedure for making checks. If
your machine requires any repair, take it to a
Yamaha dealer.
The skilled technicians at a Yamaha dealership have the tools, experience, and knowhow to properly service your machine. Use
only genuine Yamaha parts on your machine.
Imitation parts may look like Yamaha parts,
but they are often inferior. Consequently, they
have a shorter service life and can lead to expensive repair bills.

CLEANING AND STORAGE
CAUTION:
1-
Excessive water pressure may cause water seepage and deterioration of wheel
bearings, brakes, transmission seals and
electrical devices. Many expensive repair
bills have resulted from improper high
pressure detergent applications such as
those available in coin-operated car washers.
A. CLEANING
Frequent, thorough cleaning of your machine
will not only enhance its appearance but will
improve its general performance and extend
the useful life of many components.
1. Before cleaning the machine:
a. Block off the end of the exhaust pipe to
prevent water entry. A plastic bag and
strong rubber band may be used.
b. Make sure the spark plug and all filler
caps are properly installed.
2. If the engine case is excessively greasy,
apply degreaser with a paint brush. Do
not apply degreaser to the wheel axles.
3. Rinse the dirt and degreaser off with a
garden hose. Use only enough pressure
to do the job.

4. Once the majority of the dirt has been
hosed off, wash all surfaces with warm
water and mild, detergent-type soap. An
old toothbrush or bottle brush is handy for
hard-to-get-at places.
5. Rinse the machine off immediately with
clean water and dry all surfaces with a
chamois, clean towel or soft absorbent
cloth.

EE.book Page 2 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
6. Clean the seat with a vinyl upholstery
cleaner to keep the cover pliable and
glossy.
7. Automotive type wax may be applied to
all painted and chrome plated surfaces.
Avoid combination cleaner-waxes. Many
contain abrasives which may mar the
paint or protective finish. When finished,
start the engine and let it idle for several
minutes.
WARNING
POTENTIAL HAZARD
Operation with wet brakes after washing.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
Wet brakes may have reduced stopping
ability, increasing the chance of an accident.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Test the brakes after washing. Apply the
brakes several times at slow speeds to
let friction dry out the linings.
9-2
EE.book Page 3 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
EBU00530
B. STORAGE
Long term storage (60 days or more) of your
machine will require some preventive procedures to guard against deterioration. After
thoroughly cleaning the machine, prepare for
storage as follows:
1. Fill the fuel tank with fresh fuel and add
the specified amount of Yamaha Fuel
Stabilizer and Conditioner or an equivalent product.
2. Remove the spark plug, pour about one
tablespoon of SAE 10W30 or 20W40
motor oil in the spark plug hole and reinstall the spark plug. Ground the spark
plug wire and turn the engine over several times to coat the cylinder wall with oil.
3. Lubricate all control cables.
4. Block up the frame to raise all wheels off
the ground.
5. Tie a plastic bag over the exhaust pipe
outlet to prevent moisture from entering.
6. If storing in a humid or salt-air atmosphere, coat all exposed metal surfaces
with a light film of oil. Do not apply oil to
any rubber parts or the seat cover.
Specified amount:
1 oz of stabilizer to each gallon of fuel
(or 7.5 cc of stabilizer to each liter of
fuel)
NOTE:
Use of fuel stabilizer and conditioner eliminates the need to drain the fuel system. Consult a Yamaha dealer if the fuel system needs
to be drained instead.
9-3
EE.book Page 4 Thursday, March 31, 2005 9:16 AM
7. Remove the battery and charge it. Store
it in a dry place and recharge it once a
month. Do not store the battery in an excessively warm or cold place (less than
0 °C (30 °F) or more than 30 °C (90 °F)).
NOTE:
Make any necessary repairs before storing
the machine.
