NOTICE
This Operator's Guide has been prepared to acquaint the owner/operator
of a new vehicle with the various vehicle controls, maintenance and safe
operating instructions. It is indispensable for the proper use of the product.
This Operator's Guide uses the following symbols.
 WARNING
Indicates a potential hazard that, if
not avoided, could result in serious
injury or death.
CAUTION: Denotes an instruction
which, if not followed, could severely damage vehicle components.
NOTE: Indicates supplementary information needed to fully complete an instruction.
Although the mere reading of such information does not eliminate the hazard, the understanding and application
of the information will promote the
correct use of this vehicle.
To fully appreciate the pleasures, enjoyment and excitement of using this
vehicle, there are some basic rules
that MUST be observed and followed
by any user.

INTRODUCTION
Your dealer should have provided you
with some basic information on the
particular controls and features of
your new vehicle. Please take the
time to study this Operator's Guide
and all on-product warning labels as
well as the Safety Videocassette that
came with this vehicle. They more
completely describe what you should
know about this vehicle before riding
it.
Whether you are a new user or an experienced rider, it is important for your
personal safety as well as passenger
safety that you know the controls and
features of this vehicle. Equally important is knowing how to properly ride.
Irrespective of your age, experience or
state regulations, it is always prudent
for you or any other person who may
ride your vehicle, to take an approved
safe riding course. Please check with
your dealer or local authorities for availability in your area. If you are a completely new rider, this should be done
before your first ride. Your instructor
should be able to provide advice on local conditions and safe riding practices
particular to the area.
Riding conditions vary from place
to place. Each is subject to weather
conditions which may radically change
from time to time and from season to
season. Riding on sand is different
than riding on snow or through forests
or marshes. Each location may require a greater degree of awareness
and skill may not be suitable with a
passenger. Show good judgement.
Always proceed with caution. Please
do not take any unnecessary risks that
could leave you or your passenger
stranded or possibly injured.
8
The vehicle handling, stability and
braking distance may be affected
when riding with a passenger. Safely reduce speed when riding with a
passenger. Allow greater distance for
braking.
The contents of this Operator's Guide
provide riding information which has
been proven reliable by other users.
They are not intended as a definitive
means of avoiding accidents. How
you apply this information, coupled
with your mental and physical condition, the particular terrain hazard and
your risk acceptance level will have
an effect on your riding experience.
Have fun... and ride responsibly.
This Operator's Guide has been prepared to acquaint the owner/operator
of a new vehicle with the various vehicle controls, maintenance and safe
operating instructions. They are indispensable for the proper use of the
product.
We would be pleased to receive any
comments on the content and format
of this Operator's Guide, the Safety
Videocassette or on-product warnings

SAFETY WARNING
To fully appreciate the pleasures and
excitement of riding this vehicle, there
are some basic rules and tips that you
should follow. Some may be new to
you while others may be common
sense or obvious. Irrespective, we
ask that you take a few minutes to
read this Operator's Guide completely
before you operate this vehicle.
Information in this Operator's Guide
is limited. It is strongly recommended that you obtain further information
and training from your local authorities, ATV clubs or a recognized ATV
training organization such as Specialty
Vehicle Institute of America (SVIA) or
the Canada Safety Council (CSC).
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission and all ATV manufacturers do not recommended anyone
under the age of 16 to ride an ATV
having an engine higher than 90 cc.
For the child's safety, we strongly
recommend you also follow and enforce this recommendation. You are
the sole judge of a rider's capability
to understand the risks and operate a
vehicle safely.
Persons with cognitive or physical impairments or who are high risk takers
have an increased exposure to overturns or collisions which may result in
injury including death.
Become completely familiar with the
operational controls and the general
operation of the vehicle before venturing into off road conditions. Practice driving in a suitable area free of
hazards and feel the response of each
control. Drive at low speeds. Higher speeds require greater experience,
knowledge and suitable riding conditions.
Not all vehicles are the same. Each
has its own unique performance characteristics, controls and features.
Each will ride and handle differently.
Never assume that the vehicle
will go everywhere safely. Sudden
changes in terrain caused by holes,
depressions, banks, softer or harder
“ground” or other irregularities may
cause the vehicle to topple or become
unstable. To avoid this, slow down
and always observe the terrain ahead.
If the vehicle does begin to topple or
tipover, it is usually the best advice to
immediately get off... AWAY from the
direction of the tipover!
____________ SAFETY INFORMATION ___________
39
Pre-Operation Check
 WARNING
The pre-operation check is very
important prior to operating the
vehicle. Always check the proper operation of critical controls,
safety features and mechanical
components before starting. If
not done, severe injury or death
might occur.
Before using this vehicle, the operator
should always:
• Apply parking brake and check if it
operates properly.
• Check tire pressure and condition.
• Check wheels and bearings for
wear and damage.
• Check location of controls and ensure they work properly.
• Verify if steering operates freely.
• Activate throttle control lever several times to ensure it operates freely.
It must return to idle position when
released.
• Activate the brake lever and brake
pedal to make sure the brakes fully
apply. They must fully return when
released.
• Check all brake line fittings for tightness and against leaks.
• Whit parking brake correctly applied, activate the clutch lever. It
must fully return when released.
• Check drive chain for adjustment
and lubrication.
• Check sprockets for wear and damages.
• Check tightening of rear axle fasteners.
• Check swing arm, if any lateral play
is detected DO NOT USE THE VEHICLE.
• Check fuel, oil and coolant levels.
40
___________
• Check for oil leaks on the engine, oil
tank and transmission.
• Ensure fuel valve is in fully open
position (ON).
• Clean headlamp and taillight.
• Ensure seat is properly latched.
• If you transport cargo, respect load
capacity. Ensure cargo is properly
secured to the vehicle.
• Look and feel for loose parts while
engine is off. Check fasteners.
• Ensure the path of travel is free of
persons and obstacles.
• Check operation of ignition switch,
start button, engine stop switch
and headlamp switch.
• Start engine, remove parking brake
and drive forward slowly a few feet
then apply all brakes individually to
test them.
Correct any problem you may have
found before riding. See an authorized Bombardier ATV dealer as necessary.
SAFETY INFORMATION
___________
Clothing
Actual weather conditions should help you decide how to dress. However, it
is important that the operator always wear the appropriate protective clothing
and apparel, including an approved helmet, eye protection, boots, gloves, long
sleeved shirt and pants. This type of clothing will provide you protection from
some of the minor hazards you may encounter en route. Operator must never
wear loose clothing such as a scarf that may get entangled in the vehicle or on
tree branches and shrubs. Depending on conditions, antifogging goggles or sun
glasses may be required. Different colored lenses available for goggles or sun
glasses help you distinguish terrain variations. Sun glasses should only be worn
during the daytime.

Carrying Loads
Any load carried on the vehicle will affect the stability and control of the vehicle. For this reason, do not exceed the load limits of the vehicle's manufacturer.
Always make sure the load is secured and cannot interfere with your proper control. Always be aware that the “load” may slide or fall off and create an accident.
Avoid loads that may protrude sideways and get snagged or caught in brush or
other obstacles. Avoid covering and obstructing the headlamp or taillight with
the cargo.
This vehicle is designed specifically to carry an operator only. Even with a long
seat that provide unrestricted operator movements, it is not designed nor intended to carry passenger(s). Carrying passenger(s) may affect the stability and your
control of the vehicle.
Recreational Riding
Respect the rights and limitations of others. Stay away from areas designated
for other types of off road use. This includes snowmobile trails, equestrian trails,
cross country ski trails, mountain bike trails etc. Never assume there are no other
users on the trail. Always stay to the complete right of the trail and do not zig
zag to one side of the trail then the other. Be prepared to stop or pull off to the
side if another trail user appears in front of you.
Join a local ATV club. They will provide you with a map and advice or inform you
where you can ride. If a club does not exist in your area, help start one. Group
riding and club activities provide a pleasurable, social experience.
Always keep a safe distance from other riders. Your judgment of speed, terrain conditions, weather, mechanical condition of your vehicle and the “trust in
judgment” you have in others around you will help you make a better choice of
appropriate safe distance. This vehicle, like any other motorized vehicle, cannot
stop “on a dime”.
Before you ride, tell someone where you are planning to travel and your expected
time of return. Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while riding!
Depending on the length of your ride, carry additional tools or emergency equipment. Find out where you can get additional gasoline and oil. Be prepared for
the possible conditions you may encounter. An emergency first aid kit should
always be a consideration.
Environment
One of the benefits of this vehicle is that it can take you off the beaten path
away from most communities. However, you should always respect nature and
the rights of others to enjoy it. Do not ride in environmentally sensitive areas.
Do not drive over forest crops or shrubs... nor cut down trees or take down
fencing... nor spin your wheels and destroy the terrain. “Tread Lightly”.
Chasing wildlife is in many areas illegal. Wildlife can die of exhaustion after being
chased by a motorized vehicle. If you encounter animals on the trail, stop and
observe quietly and with caution. It will be one of the better memories of your
life.
42
___________
SAFETY INFORMATION
___________
Observe the rule... “what you take in, carry out”. Do not litter. Do not start
campfires unless you have permission to do so... and then only... away from
dry areas. The hazards you may create on the trail may cause injury to others or
yourself, even at a later date.
Respect farm lands. Always obtain the permission of the landowner before riding
on private land. Respect crops, farm animals and property lines. If you come to
a closed a gate, close it again after yourself.
Finally, do not pollute streams, lakes or rivers and do not modify the engine or
muffling system, or remove any of its components.
Design Limitation
Although the vehicle is exceptionally rugged for its class, it is still a light vehicle
by definition and its operation must be restricted to its proper purpose.
The addition of weight to any part of the vehicle changes its gravitational stability
and modifies its performance.
Off-Highway Operation
The very nature of off-highway operation is dangerous. Any terrain, which has
not been specially prepared to carry vehicles, presents an inherent danger where
angularity, terrain substance and exact steepness are unpredictable. The terrain
itself presents a continual element of danger, which must be knowingly accepted
by anyone venturing over it.
An operator who takes a vehicle off-road should always exercise the utmost care
in selecting the safest path and keeping close watch on the terrain ahead of him.
On no account should the vehicle be operated by anyone who is not completely
familiar with the driving instructions applicable to the vehicle, nor should it be
operated on steep or treacherous terrain.
General Operating and Safety Precautions
Care, caution, experience and driving skill are the best precautions against the
hazards of vehicle operation.
Whenever there is the slightest doubt that the vehicle can safely negotiate an
obstacle or a particular piece of terrain, always choose an alternate route.
In off-road operation, power and traction, not speed, are important. Never drive
faster than visibility and your own ability to select a safe route permit.
Constantly watch the terrain ahead for sudden changes in slopes or obstacles,
such as rocks or stumps, that may cause loss of stability, resulting in tipover or
rollover.
Never operate the vehicle if the controls do not function normally.
When stopped or parked, always apply the parking brake. This is especially important when parking on a slope. On very steep inclines or if the vehicle is carrying cargo, the wheels should be blocked using rocks or bricks. Remember to
turn the fuel valve to the closed position.
____________ SAFETY INFORMATION ___________
43
Uphill Driving
Due to configuration, this vehicle has excellent climbing ability, so much so that
tipover is possible before traction is lost. For example, its common to encounter
terrain situations where the top of the hill has eroded to a point that the hill peak
rises very sharply. The vehicle can readily negotiate such a condition, however,
in doing so, when the front of the vehicle is driven to a point that the vehicle's
balance changes rearward tipover can occur.
The same situation may apply if an embedded object causes the front of the
vehicle to climb more than desired. If such a situation occurs take an alternate
route. Be aware of side hilling dangers when doing so.
It is also wise to know the terrain condition on the other side of the hill or bank. All
too often there exists a sharp drop-off that is impossible to negotiate or descend.
Downhill Driving
This vehicle can climb slopes that are steeper than it can safely descend. Therefore, it is essential to assure that a safe route exists to descend a slope before
you climb it.
Decelerating while negotiating a slippery downhill slope could “toboggan” the
vehicle. Maintain steady speed and/or accelerate slightly to regain control.
Side Hilling
Whenever possible, such operation should be avoided. If necessary, do so with
extreme caution. Side hilling on steep inclines could result in rollover. In addition, slippery or unfirm surfaces could result in uncontrollable side sliding. Do
not attempt to turn the vehicle downhill with the slide. Avoid all objects or depressions that will intensify the raising of one side of the vehicle higher than the
other, thus causing rollover.
Drop-Offs
This vehicle will “bottom-out” and usually stop if either the front or rear wheels
are driven over a drop-off. If the drop is sharp or deep, the vehicle will nose dive
and tipover.

WARNING
Avoid negotiating drop-offs. Reverse and select an alternate route.
Riding Techniques
Riding your vehicle too fast for the conditions may result in injury. Apply only
enough throttle to proceed safely. Statistics show that high speed turns usually
result in mishaps and injury. Always remember that this vehicle is heavy! Its
pure weight alone may entrap you should it fall and pin you down.
This vehicle is not designed for jumping nor can it, or you, absorb the energy of
high impacts such as jumping. Performing “wheelies” can cause the vehicle to
flip over onto you. Both practices have a high risk for you and should be avoided
at all times.

___________
SAFETY INFORMATION
___________
To maintain proper control it is strongly advised that you keep your hands on the
handlebar and within easy reach of all controls. The same holds true for your
feet. To minimize the possibility of any leg or foot injury, keep your feet on the
footrests at all times. Do not direct your toes outwards nor place your foot out to
assist turning as they can be hit or snagged by passing obstacles or may contact
the wheels.
V00A0UL
Even though there is an adequate suspensions system on this vehicle there are
“washboard” or rough terrain conditions that will make you feel uncomfortable
and even cause back injury. “Posting” or riding in a crouched position will often
be required. Slow down and allow your flexed legs to absorb impact.
This vehicle is not designed for riding on roads or highways. In most places it is
an illegal practice. Riding your vehicle on roads or highways could cause a collision to occur with another vehicle. ATV tires are not suited for paved road use.
Pavement may seriously affect the handling and control of the vehicle. Riding on
roads or soft shoulders may confuse other road users, especially if your lights are
on. If you have to cross a road, the lead driver should get off his vehicle then observe and give directions to the other riders. The last person after crossing then
assists the lead driver to cross. Do not travel sidewalks. They are designated
for pedestrian use.
Water can be a unique hazard. If it is too deep the vehicle may “float” and topple.
Check the water depth and current before you attempt to cross any water. Water
should not go above the footrest. Be wary of slippery surfaces such as rocks,
grass, logs, etc., both in the water and on its banks. A loss of traction may occur.
Do not attempt to enter the water at high speed. The water will act as a brake
and could throw you.
____________ SAFETY INFORMATION ___________
45
V00A0VL
Water will affect the braking ability of your vehicle. Make sure you dry the brakes
by applying them several times after the vehicle leaves the water.
Mud or marsh lands may be encountered near water. Be prepared for sudden
“holes” or changes in depth. Similarly so, be watchful of hazards such as rocks,
logs, etc., partially covered by vegetation.
If your trip crosses frozen waterways, make sure that the ice is thick enough and
sound enough to support the total weight of yourself, the vehicle and its load.
Be ever watchful of open water... it is a sure indication that the ice thickness will
vary. If in doubt, do not attempt to cross.
Ice will also affect the control of vehicle. Slow down and do not “gun” the throttle. This will only result in spinning of the tires and possible tipover of the vehicle.
Avoid rapid braking. This again will possibly result in an uncontrolled slide and
tipover of the vehicle. Slush should be avoided at all times since it could block
the operation or controls of the vehicle
Sand and riding on sand dunes or on snow is another unique experience but
there are some basic precautions that should be observed. Wet, deep or fine
sand/snow may create a loss of traction and cause the vehicle to slide, drop off
or become “bogged” down. If this occurs look for a firmer base. Again, the best
advice is to slow down and be watchful of the conditions.
46
___________
SAFETY INFORMATION
___________
When riding in sand dunes it is advisable to equip the vehicle with an antenna
type safety flag. This will help make your location more visible to others over
the next sand dune. Proceed carefully should you see another safety flag ahead.
Since the antenna type safety flag can snag and rebound on your body if caught,
do not use it in areas where there are low hanging branches or obstacles.
Riding on loose stones or gravel is very similar to riding on ice. They will affect
the steering of vehicle... possibly causing it to slide and tipover especially at
high speeds. In addition, braking distance may be a effected. Remember that
“gunning” the throttle or sliding may cause loose stones to be ejected rearwards
into the path of another rider's way. Never do it deliberately.
V00A0WL
If you do get into a slide or skid, it may help to turn the handlebar into the direction
of the skid until you regain control. Never jam the brakes and lock the wheels.
Respect and follow all posted trail signs. They are there to help you and others.
Obstacles in the “trail” should be traversed with caution. This includes loose
rocks, fallen trees, slippery surfaces, fences, posts, and embankments and depressions. You should avoid them whenever possible. Remember that some
obstacles are too large or dangerous to cross and should be avoided. Small rocks
or fallen trees may be safely crossed... approach at a 90° angle. Stand on the
footrests while keeping your knees flexed. Adjust speed without losing momentum and do not “gun” the throttle. Hold handgrips firmly. Place your body weight
rearwards and proceed. Do not try to lift the vehicle front wheels off the ground.
Be aware that the object may be slippery or may move while crossing.
When driving on hills or slopes two things are highly important... be prepared
for slippery surfaces or terrain variations and obstacles and... use proper body
positioning.
____________ SAFETY INFORMATION ___________
47
Uphill
Keep your body weight forward towards the top of the hill. Keep your feet on
the footpegs and shift into low gear then accelerate and when necessary, change
gear quickly as you climb. Do not over-speed since this may cause the front of
the vehicle to lift from the ground and fall back on you. If the hill is too steep
and you cannot proceed or the vehicle begins to roll backwards, apply the brake,
being careful not to slide. Dismount then use the “U” turn or “K” turn (while
walking back, next to the vehicle on the up hill side and with a hand on the brake
lever, slowly back the rear of the vehicle toward the top of the hill then drive
downhill). Always walk or dismount on the upside of the slope while keeping
clear of the vehicle and its rotating wheels. Do not try to hold on to the vehicle if
it begins to topple. Stay clear. Do not ride over the crest of the hill at high speed.
Obstacles, including sharp drop-offs, may exist.
V00A0XL

Downhill
Keep your body weight rearwards. Apply the brake gradually to prevent skidding.
Do not “coast” down the slope using solely engine compression or in neutral
gear.
V00A0YL
____________ SAFETY INFORMATION ___________
49
Side Hilling
This is one of the most risky types of riding since it may drastically change the
balance of the vehicle. It should be avoided wherever possible. If it is necessary
to do so however, it is important that you ALWAYS keep your body weight on
the upside of the slope... and be prepared to dismount on that side should the
vehicle begin to topple. Do not try to stop or save the vehicle from damage.
V00A0ZL
Routine Maintenance
Once your ride completed, it is wise to remove any build up of snow, ice, mud and
grime. Not only will this help you keep your vehicle longer and in good condition
for resale but will eliminate potential hazards the next time you use the vehicle.
Wash your vehicle in warm soapy water then allow it to dry. (A towel may help).
Do not wash your vehicle outside during freezing weather. Apply appropriate
lubrication as described in the MAINTENANCE section.
Part of your responsibility towards safety is to respect the contents of this Operator's Guide. It provides valuable advice on how to properly take care of your
vehicle. If further assistance is required your authorized Bombardier ATV dealer
is always willing to help.
Modification of the vehicle to increase speed and performance may violate the
terms and conditions of your vehicle limited warranty. In addition, certain modifications including the removal of engine or exhaust components are illegal under
most laws.

______________________
BREAK-IN PERIOD
Engine
A break-in period of 10 operating hours
is required before running the vehicle
at sustained full throttle.
CAUTION: Never mix oil with fuel.
This vehicle has a 4-stroke engine.
Oil must be added to oil tank only.
During this period, maximum throttle
should not exceed 3/4. However, brief
full acceleration and speed variations
contribute to a good break-in. Continued wide open throttle accelerations,
prolonged cruising speeds and engine
overheating are detrimental during the
break-in period.
10-Hour Inspection
NOTE: The 10-hour inspection is at the
expense of the vehicle owner.
As with any precision piece of mechanical equipment, we suggest that
after the first 10 hours or 30 days or
400 km (250 m.) after the purchase,
whichever comes first, your vehicle
be inspected by an authorized Bombardier ATV dealer. This inspection
will give you the opportunity to discuss the unanswered questions you
may have encountered during the first
hours of operation.
While reading this Operator’s Guide, remember that:

Tires/Wheels
 WARNING
When the tires are replaced, never
install a bias tire with a radial tire.
This combined application may
create handling and/or stability
problems.
Do not mix tires of different size
and/or design on the same axle.
Front tire pairs or rear tire pairs
must be the identical model and
manufacturer.
For unidirectional tread pattern,
ensure that the tires are installed
in the correct direction of rotation.
The radial tires must be installed
as a complete set.
Severe injury or death can result
if you do not follow these instructions.
Tire Pressure
 WARNING
Tire pressure greatly affects vehicle handling and stability. Underpressure may cause tire to deflate
and rotate on wheel. Overpressure may burst the tire. Always
follow recommended pressure.
Since tires are low-pressure types,
a manual pump should be used.
Although the tires are specifically designed for off-road use, a flat may still
occur. Therefore, it is recommended
to carry a tire pump and a repair kit.
Tire/Wheel Condition
Check tire for damage and wear. Replace if necessary. Do not make a tire
rotation. The front and rear tires have
a different size. The tires are directional and their rotation must be kept
in a specific direction for proper operation.
Wheel Removal
Occasionally, wheel nuts should be removed to apply an anti-seize lubricant
on studs to ease future removal. This
is particularly important when vehicle
is used in salt-water environment or in
mud. Remove one nut at a time, lubricate then retorque.
Loosen nuts then lift vehicle. Place a
support under vehicle. Remove nuts
then remove wheel. At installation, it
is recommended to apply an anti-seize
lubricant on threads. Gently tighten
nuts in a criss-cross sequence then apply a final torque of 53 N•m (39 lbf•ft).
CAUTION: Always use the recommended wheel nuts (P/N 732 610
084). Using a different nut could
cause damages to the rim.
Check pressure when tires are COLD
before using the vehicle. Tire pressure changes with temperature and
altitude. Recheck pressure if one of
these conditions has changed.
For your convenience, a pressure
gauge is supplied in tool box.
