Brake Lever
FEATURES AND CONTROLS
WARNING
Operating the ATV with a spongy brake lever can result in loss of braking, which
could cause an accident. Never operate the ATV with a spongy-feeling brake
lever. Always contact your dealer for service before operating the vehicle.
Squeeze the brake lever toward the
handlebar to apply the front and
rear brakes. These brakes are
hydraulically activated disc type
brakes that are activated by only
one lever.
Always test brake lever travel and
master cylinder fluid level before
riding. When squeezed, the lever
should feel firm. Any sponginess
would indicate a possible fluid leak or low master cylinder fluid level,
which must be corrected before riding. Contact your dealer for proper
diagnosis and repairs.
31
FEATURES AND CONTROLS
Master Cylinder/Brake Fluid
WARNING
An over-full master cylinder may cause brake drag or brake lock-up, which could
result in an accident. Maintain brake fluid at the recommended level. Do not
overfill.
Never store or use a partial bottle of brake fluid. Brake fluid is hygroscopic,
meaning it rapidly absorbs moisture from the air. The moisture causes the
boiling temperature of the brake fluid to drop, which can lead to early brake fade
and the possibility of brake failure, which could result in an accident. After
opening a bottle of brake fluid, always discard any unused portion.
Check the brake fluid in the master
Master Cylinder
cylinder before each ride.
1. Position the ATV on a level
surface.
2. Position the handlebars so the
master cylinder is level.
3. View the brake fluid level
through the indicator window
on the top of the master cylinIndicator
der. The eye will appear dark
Window
when the fluid level is full.
When fluid is low, the eye will
be clear.
4. If the fluid level is low add DOT 4 brake fluid only. Do not overfill.
32
Parking Brake
FEATURES AND CONTROLS
Locking the Parking Brake
1. Place the transmission in
PARK.
2. Squeeze and release the brake
lever two or three times, then
squeeze and hold.
3. Push the parking brake lock
forward to engage the lock.
4. Release the brake lever.
5. To release the parking brake lock, squeeze and release the brake
lever. It will return to its unlocked position.
WARNING! Operating the ATV while the parking brake is engaged could result
in an accident or fire. Always check to be sure the parking brake is disengaged
before operating.
The parking brake may relax if left on for a long period of time. Always
block the wheels to prevent rolling. Always block the wheels on the
downhill side of the ATV if leaving it parked on a hill. Another option is
to park the ATV in a sidehill position. Never depend on the parking
brake alone if the ATV is parked on a hill. Always block the wheels to
prevent rolling.
33
FEATURES AND CONTROLS
Auxiliary Foot Brake
WARNING
Aggressively applying the auxiliary brake when backing down a hill may cause
rear tipover, which could result in serious injury or death. Never back down a hill.
Use caution when applying the auxiliary brake. Do not aggressively apply the
auxiliary brake when going forward. The rear wheels may skid and slide
sideways, causing loss of control and serious injury or death.
The auxiliary brake system is intended to be used as a backup for the
main brake system. Should the main system fail, use the auxiliary foot
brake. Since this is a rear brake only, it will not be as effective as the allwheel single lever system.
The auxiliary foot brake is located
Auxiliary Foot Brake
on the inside of the right footrest.
Operate this brake with your right
foot.
If the rear wheels slide while using
the auxiliary brake, reduce brake
pedal pressure to brake the rear
wheels without skidding.

OPERATION
WARNING
Failure to operate the ATV properly can result in a collision, loss of control,
accident or overturn, which may result in serious injury or death. Read and
understand all safety warnings outlined in the safety section of this owner’s
manual.
Break-In Period
The break-in period for your new Polaris ATV is the first ten hours of
operation, or the time it takes to use the first two full tanks of gasoline.
No single action on your part is as important as following the procedures for a proper break-in. Careful treatment of a new engine and drive
components will result in more efficient performance and longer life for
these components.
NOTICE: Excessive heat build-up during the first three hours of operation will
damage close-fitted engine parts and drive components. Do not
operate at full throttle or high speeds during the first three hours of
use.
50
Break-In Period
OPERATION
Engine and Drivetrain Break-in
1. Fill the fuel tank with gasoline. See page 36. Always exercise
extreme caution whenever handling gasoline.
2. Check the engine oil level on the dipstick. See page 80. Add oil if
necessary to maintain the level between the safe and add marks.
3. Drive slowly at first. Select an open area that allows room to familiarize yourself with vehicle operation and handling.
4. Vary the throttle positions. Do not operate at sustained idle.
5. Perform regular checks on fluid levels, controls and areas outlined
on the daily pre-ride inspection checklist. See page 52.
6. Pull only light loads.
7. Change both the oil and the filter at 20 hours or one month, whichever comes first.
PVT Break-in (Clutches/Belt)
A proper break-in of the clutches and drive belt will ensure a longer life
and better performance. Break in the clutches and belt by operating at
slower speeds during the break-in period as recommended. Pull only
light loads. Avoid aggressive acceleration and high speed operation during the break-in period.
51

OPERATION
Know Your Riding Area/Tread Lightly
Familiarize yourself with all laws and regulations concerning the operation of this off-road vehicle in your area. Respect the environment in
which you ride. Find out where the designated riding areas are by contacting your Polaris dealer, a local riding club or local officials.
Help keep our trails open for recreational vehicle use. As an off-road
enthusiast, you represent the sport and can set a good example (or a poor
example) for others to follow. Tread lightly. Operate with respect for the
terrain, avoid littering, and always stay on the designated trails.
Trail Etiquette
Always practice good etiquette when riding. Allow a safe distance
between your vehicle and other vehicles operating in the same area.
Communicate to oncoming operators by signaling the number of vehicles in your group. When stopping, move your vehicle to the edge of the
trail as far as possible to allow others to pass safely.
54
Starting the Engine
OPERATION
1. Position the vehicle on a level surface outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.
2. Place the transmission in PARK.
3. Lock the parking brake.
Tip: The starter interlock will prevent the engine from starting if the transmission
is in gear and the brake is not engaged.
4. Sit on the vehicle and move the engine stop switch to RUN.
Tip: Do not press the throttle while starting the engine.
5. Turn the ignition key past the ON position to engage the starter.
Activate the starter for a maximum of five seconds, releasing the
key when the engine starts.
500 EFI ONLY: The starter will automatically stop if engaged for longer than
5 seconds. Move the key to the OFF position and wait 10 seconds before
engaging the starter again.
6. If the engine does not start, return the key to the OFF position and
wait five seconds before attempting to start again. Activate the
starter for another five seconds if necessary. Repeat this procedure
until the engine starts.
NOTICE: Operating the vehicle immediately after starting could cause engine
damage. Allow the engine to warm up for several minutes before
operating the vehicle.
Cold Weather Operation
If the ATV is used year-round, check the oil level frequently. A rising oil
level could indicate the accumulation of contaminates such as water or
excess fuel in the bottom of the crankcase. Water in the bottom of the
crankcase can lead to engine damage and must be drained. Water accumulation increases as outside temperature decreases.
See your Polaris dealer for engine heater kits, which provide quicker
warm-ups and easier starting in colder weather.

Turning the Vehicle
OPERATION
Both rear wheels drive
equally at all times (except
when operating in 2X4 mode
with the differential
unlocked). This means that
the outside wheel must travel
a greater distance than the
inside wheel when turning,
and the inside tire must slip
traction slightly.
1. Slow down.
2. Never turn quickly when
carrying a passenger or
cargo.
3. Steer in the direction of
the turn.
4. Keep both feet on the footrests.
5. Lean your upper body to the inside of the turn while supporting your
weight on the outer footrest.This technique alters the balance of
traction between the rear wheels, allowing the turn to be made
smoothly. The same leaning technique should be used for turning in

OPERATION
Driving with a Passenger
1. Never allow anyone under 12 years of age to ride as a passenger on
this 2-up ATV. Make sure any passenger is tall enough to comfortably and safely reach the grab handles and footrests.
2. Do not carry a passenger until you have at least two hours of driving
experience with this vehicle.
3. Make sure the passenger is wearing appropriate riding gear, including an approved helmet with a rigid chin guard. See page 8.
4. Perform the pre-ride
inspection. See page 52.
5. Convert the seat for 2-up
riding. See page 40.
Always make sure the
passenger seat lock-out is
functioning properly
before carrying a
passenger.
6. Lock the parking brake.
7. Mount the vehicle from the
left side. After the operator
is seated, the passenger
should mount the vehicle
from the left side. Always
make sure the brake is
engaged to ensure the vehicle remains motionless whenever a passenger mounts or dismounts.
8. Allow a passenger to ride only in the approved passenger seat.
9. Never carry more than one passenger.
10. Slow down. Control may be more difficult with a passenger on
board. Allow more time and distance for braking.

Driving with a Passenger
OPERATION
11. Ride to the ability of your passenger, instead of to your own ability.
Avoid unexpected or aggressive maneuvers that could cause a passenger to fall from the vehicle.
12. Do not cross a hillside with a passenger on board. See page 62.
13. A passenger should always be seated in the passenger seat with both
feet on the footrests and both hands on the passenger grab handles
at all times. The passenger should never hold on to the operator.
Never secure a passenger to the vehicle or to the operator with a
belt, rope or similar device.
14. Make sure the passenger understands the importance of "active
riding." When hill-climbing or performing maneuvers, a passenger
should shift body weight in the same manner in which the driver
shifts body weight. For example, the passenger should lean to the
inside of a turn along with the operator and should always lean
uphill when climbing and descending hills.
59
OPERATION
Driving on Slippery Surfaces
Whenever riding on slippery surfaces such as wet trails or loose gravel,
or during freezing weather, follow these precautions:
1. Do not operate on excessively rough, slippery or loose terrain.
2. Slow down when entering slippery areas.
3. Engage 4X4 before wheels begin to lose traction.
NOTICE: Severe damage to drive train may occur if the 4X4 is engaged while
the wheels are spinning. Allow the rear wheels to stop spinning
before engaging 4X4, or engage 4X4 before wheels begin to lose
traction.

2. Choose a crossing where
Maximum Depth
both banks have gradual inclines.
3. Avoid operating through deep or fast-flowing water.
NOTICE: Major engine damage can result if the vehicle is not thoroughly
inspected after operation in water. Perform the services outlined in
the maintenance chart. See page 75. The following areas need
special attention: engine oil, transmission oil, demand drive fluid and
all grease fittings.
If the vehicle tips or overturns in water, or if the engine stops during or
after operating in water, restarting can result in serious engine
damage. Transport the vehicle to your dealer for service before
restarting the engine. If this is not possible, follow the vehicle
immersion inspection and drying procedures outlined on page 108,
then see your dealer for service at the first opportunity.
4. After leaving water, test the brakes. Apply them lightly several
times while driving slowly. The friction will help dry out the pads.
If it’s unavoidable to enter water deeper than the footrest level:
• Proceed slowly. Avoid rocks and obstacles.
• Balance your weight carefully. Avoid sudden movements.
• Maintain a steady rate of speed. Do not make sudden turns or stops.
Do not make sudden throttle changes.
66
Driving Over Obstacles
OPERATION
Follow these precautions when operating over obstacles:
1. Always check for obstacles before operating in a new area.
2. Look ahead and learn to read the terrain. Be constantly alert for hazards such as logs, rocks and low hanging branches.
3. Travel slowly and use extra caution when operating on unfamiliar
terrain. Not all obstacles are immediately visible.
4. Never attempt to operate over large obstacles, such as rocks or
fallen trees.
5. Always have a passenger dismount before operating over an obstacle that could cause a fall from the vehicle or vehicle tipover.
67
OPERATION
Driving in Reverse
Follow these precautions when operating in reverse:
1. Always check for obstacles or people behind the vehicle. Be aware
that a passenger can obstruct your view.
2. Always avoid backing downhill.
3. Back slowly.
4. Apply the brakes lightly for stopping.
5. Avoid turning at sharp angles.
6. Never open the throttle suddenly.
7. Do not use the override switch unless additional wheel speed is
required for vehicle movement. Use the override with caution as
rearward vehicle speed is greatly increased. Do not operate at wide
open throttle. Operate the throttle just enough to maintain a desired
speed.
NOTICE: Excessive throttle operation while in the speed limit mode may cause
fuel to build in the exhaust, resulting in engine popping and/or engine
damage.

69
OPERATION
Hauling Cargo
WARNING
Overloading the vehicle or carrying or towing cargo improperly can alter vehicle
handling and may cause loss of control or brake instability. Always follow these
precautions when hauling cargo:
Never carry cargo in the rear box when operating the ATV in the 2-up mode with
a passenger.
REDUCE SPEED AND ALLOW GREATER DISTANCES FOR BRAKING
WHEN HAULING CARGO.
NEVER EXCEED THE MAXIMUM WEIGHT CAPACITY of the vehicle. When
determining the weight you are adding to the vehicle, include the weight of the
operator, passenger, accessories, loads in the rack or box and the load on the
trailer tongue. The combined weight of these items must not exceed the
maximum weight capacity.
REDUCE SPEED AND CARGO to maintain stable driving conditions when
operating over rough or hilly terrain.
WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION in the cargo bed should be as far forward and as low
as possible. Carrying a high load raises the center of gravity and creates a less
stable operating condition. Reduce load weight when cargo is high. When
handling off-centered loads that cannot be centered, secure the load and
operate with extra caution.
SECURE ALL LOADS BEFORE OPERATING. Unsecured loads may shift and
create unstable operating conditions, which could result in loss of control of the
vehicle. Always be sure that the cargo bed is lowered and latched before
moving the vehicle.
USE EXTREME CAUTION when operating with loads extending beyond the
rack or cargo bed. Stability and maneuverability may be adversely affected,
causing the machine to overturn.
BALANCE LOADS proportionally between the front rack and cargo bed, but do
not exceed the stated load capacity. Carrying a load on only the front rack or
cargo bed may cause an imbalanced condition and increases the possibility of
vehicle overturn.
USE EXTREME CAUTION when applying brakes with a loaded vehicle. Avoid
terrain or situations that may require backing downhill.
Always attach the tow load to the hitch point.
DO NOT TRAVEL FASTER THAN THE RECOMMENDED SPEEDS. The
vehicle should never exceed 10 mph (16 kph) while towing a load on a level
surface. Vehicle speed should never exceed 5 mph (8 kph) when towing loads in
rough terrain, while cornering, or while ascending or descending a hill.
DO NOT BLOCK THE FRONT HEADLIGHT BEAM when carrying loads on the
front rack.
70
Hauling Cargo
OPERATION
Never exceed the weight
capacities specified for your
ATV on warning labels and in
the specifications section of
this manual.
Cargo weight should be
mounted as low as possible.
When operating over rough or
hilly terrain, reduce speed and
cargo weight to maintain stable driving conditions.
1. Always load the cargo
box with the load as far
forward as possible.
2. Do not obstruct the headlight beam with cargo.
3. Use low forward gear when hauling or towing heavy cargo to
extend belt life.
4. Always operate the vehicle with extreme caution whenever hauling
or towing loads. Balance, handling, and control may be affected.
5. Slow down.
6. Make sure the cargo box dump latch is securely latched before loading and operating. Unintentional dumping will result if weight is
placed in the rear of the box and the latch is not secured.
71
OPERATION
Hauling Cargo
Towing Loads
Always attach a towed load to the hitch point. Remove the hitch from
the ATV when not towing a trailer. If towing a load, reduce rear rack
cargo weight by the amount of tongue weight.
• The combination of rear rack cargo weight and tongue weight must
not exceed the rear rack capacity.
• The total load (operator, passenger, accessories, cargo and weight on
hitch) must not exceed the maximum weight capacity of the vehicle.
NOTICE: Using an improper hitch or
exceeding the maximum tongue
weight capacity can result in serious
damage to the vehicle and will void
your ATV warranty. Never install a
hitch longer than 4" (10 cm). Never
install automotive accessories on
your Polaris ATV. Always install
Polaris-approved (or equivalent)
accessories designed for ATV use.

debris.
9. Reinstall the cap securely. Clean up any drips or spills.
91
MAINTENANCE
Cooling System
The engine coolant level is controlled, or maintained, by the recovery
system. The recovery system components are the recovery bottle, the
radiator filler neck, the radiator pressure cap and the connecting hose.
As coolant operating temperature increases, the expanding (heated)
excess coolant is forced out of the engine, past the pressure cap, and into
the recovery bottle. As engine coolant temperature decreases the contracting (cooled) coolant is drawn back up from the bottle, past the pressure cap, and into the radiator.
Some coolant level drop on new vehicles is normal as the system is
purging itself of trapped air. Check the coolant level and maintain as
recommended by adding coolant to the recovery bottle.
Polaris recommends the use of Polaris Premium 60/40 anti-freeze/coolant or a 50/50 mixture of high quality aluminum compatible anti-freeze/
coolant and distilled water. Polaris Premium 60/40 is already premixed
and ready to use. Do not dilute with water. See page 133 for the part
numbers of Polaris products.
Always follow the manufacturer's mixing recommendations for the
freeze protection required in your area.
Recovery Bottle Coolant
The recovery bottle is located on
the left side of the vehicle.
1. Remove the left side panel.
See page 96.
2. Maintain the coolant level
between the minimum and
maximum marks on the bottle (when the fluid is cool).
3. Add coolant as needed.

MAINTENANCE
Radiator Coolant
To ensure that the coolant maintains its ability to protect the engine,
Polaris recommends that you drain the system completely every two
years and add a fresh mixture of antifreeze and water.
Replace the coolant any time the cooling system has been drained for
maintenance or repair. If the recovery bottle has run dry, check the level
in the radiator. Add coolant as needed.
CAUTION!Escaping steam can cause burns. Never remove the pressure cap
while the engine is warm or hot. Always allow the engine to cool before
removing the pressure cap.
1. Open the front box cover and
pull open the access door.
2. Remove the pressure cap.
3. Using a funnel, slowly add
coolant through the radiator
filler neck.
4. Reinstall the pressure cap.
Use of a non-standard pressure cap will not allow the
recovery system to function
properly. Contact your dealer
for the correct replacement
part.
5. Secure the access door.
6. Secure the box cover.

MAINTENANCE
Brakes
Hand Brake
The front and rear brakes are hydraulic disc brakes, activated by moving
the single brake lever toward the handlebar. These brakes are selfadjusting.
Under normal operation, the diaphragm extends into the reservoir as
fluid level drops. If the fluid level is low and the diaphragm is not
extended, a leak is likely and the diaphragm should be replaced. To
ensure proper diaphragm operation, always fill the reservoir as needed
whenever the cover is loosened or removed. Do not overfill.
WARNING! An over-full master cylinder may cause brake drag or brake lockup, which could result in serious injury or death. Maintain brake fluid at the
recommended level. Do not overfill.
The following checks are recommended to keep the brake system in
good operating condition. Check more often if brakes are used heavily
under normal operation.
1. Always keep brake fluid at an adequate
level. See page 32.
2. Check the brake system for fluid leaks.
3. Check the brakes for excessive travel or
spongy feel.
4. Check the friction pads for wear, damage
and looseness. Replace brake pads when
they are worn to 3/64" (1 mm).

MAINTENANCE
PVT System
WARNING
Failure to comply with the instructions in this warning can result in severe injury
or death.
Do not modify any component of the PVT system. Doing so may reduce its
strength so that a failure may occur at a high speed. The PVT system has been
precision balanced. Any modification will cause the system to be out of balance,
creating vibration and additional loads on components.
The PVT system rotates at high speeds, creating large amounts of force on
clutch components. Extensive engineering and testing has been conducted to
ensure the safety of this product. However, as the owner, you have the following
responsibilities to make sure this system remains safe:
• Always follow all recommended maintenance procedures. See your dealer as
outlined in the owner's manual.
• This PVT system is intended for use on Polaris products only. Do not install it
in any other product.
• Always make sure the PVT housing is securely in place during operation.
110
PVT System
MAINTENANCE
The basic operation of the Polaris PVT system is dependent on engine
speed and vehicle torque requirements. As engine speed increases, the
force exerted on the movable drive sheave by the flyweights also
increases. This, in turn, increases the amount of pinch applied to the
drive belt. Similarly, if the engine speed decreases, the amount of centrifugal force decreases, reducing the amount of belt pinch.
On Polaris ATVs, the approximate gear ratio difference between high
and low range is 1:2.25. This difference in gearing affects the operation
of the PVT, especially at speeds less than 7 MPH (11 km/h), due to the
system's dependence on engine speed.
For example, when operating at a ground speed of 3 MPH (5 km/h) in
low range, the engine speed would be around 3000 RPM. This is well
above the engagement speed of 1200 - 1400 RPM. However, in high
range at 3 MPH (5 km/h), the engine would be running at only 1500
RPM. Whenever operating this close to the engagement speed, the
engine may be running at a speed too low to provide the pinch needed to
prevent belt slip. Belt slip is responsible for creating the excessive heat
that destroys belts, wears clutch components and causes outer clutch
covers to fail.
The air temperature in the clutch cover is substantially reduced by using
low range while operating at low ground speeds. Reducing the temperature inside the clutch cover greatly extends the life of the PVT components (belt, cover, etc.).

MAINTENANCE
WARNING
Improperly connecting or disconnecting battery cables can result in an explosion
and cause serious injury or death. When removing the battery, always
disconnect the negative (black) cable first. When reinstalling the battery, always
connect the negative (black) cable last.
WARNING
Battery electrolyte is poisonous. It contains sulfuric acid. Serious burns can
result from contact with skin, eyes or clothing.
Antidote:
External: Flush with water.
Internal: Drink large quantities of water or milk. Follow with milk of magnesia,
beaten egg, or vegetable oil. Call physician immediately.
Eyes: Flush with water for 15 minutes and get prompt medical attention.
Batteries produce explosive gases. Keep sparks, flame, cigarettes, etc. away.
Ventilate when charging or using in an enclosed space. Always shield eyes
when working near batteries. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Your ATV may have either a sealed battery, which requires little maintenance, or a conventional battery. A sealed battery can be identified by its
flat covers on the top of the battery. A conventional battery has six filler
caps on the top of the battery.
Always keep battery terminals and connections free of corrosion. If
cleaning is necessary, remove corrosion with a stiff wire brush. Wash
with a solution of one tablespoon baking soda and one cup water. Rinse
well with tap water and dry off with clean shop towels. Coat the terminals with dielectric grease or petroleum jelly. Be careful not to allow
cleaning solution or tap water into a conventional battery.

MAINTENANCE
Battery Installation
Using a new battery that has not been fully charged can damage the battery and result in a shorter life. It can also hinder vehicle performance.
Follow the battery charging instructions on page 117 before installing
the battery.
1. Ensure that the battery is fully charged.
2. Place the battery in the battery holder.
3. With conventional batteries, install the battery vent tube (sealed batteries do not have a vent tube). The vent tube must be free of
obstructions and securely installed. Route the tube away from the
frame and vehicle body to prevent contact with electrolyte.
WARNING! Battery gases could accumulate in an improperly installed vent tube
and cause an explosion, resulting in serious injury or death. Always ensure that
the vent tube is free of obstructions and is securely installed as recommended.
4. On conventional batteries, coat the terminals with dielectric grease
or petroleum jelly.
5. Connect and tighten the red (positive) cable first.
6. Connect and tighten the black (negative) cable last.
7. Install the battery cover.
8. Tighten the battery hold-down bolt.

115
MAINTENANCE
Battery
Battery Storage
Whenever the vehicle is not used for a period of three months or more,
remove the battery from the vehicle, ensure that it's fully charged, and
store it out of the sun in a cool, dry place. Check battery voltage each
month during storage and recharge as needed to maintain a full charge.
Tip: Power plug leads may need to be bent down so that the battery cover can
be installed.
Polaris recommends maintaining battery charge by using a Polaris Battery Tender charger or by charging about once a month to make up for
normal self-discharge. Battery Tender can be left connected during the
storage period, and will automatically charge the battery if the voltage
drops below a pre-determined point. See page 133 for the part numbers
of Polaris products.
Battery Fluid (Conventional Battery)
A poorly maintained battery will
deteriorate rapidly. Check the battery
fluid level often. Maintain the fluid
level between the upper and lower
level marks.

MAINTENANCE
Battery Charging (Conventional Battery)
1. Remove the battery from the vehicle to prevent damage from leaking or spilled electrolyte during charging. See page 114.
2. Charge the battery with a charging output no larger than 1/10 of the
battery’s amp/hr rating. Charge as needed to raise the specific gravity to 1.270 or greater.
3. Reinstall the battery. See page 115. Make sure the positive terminal
is toward the front of the vehicle.
Battery Charging (Sealed Battery)
The following battery charging instructions apply only to the installation of a sealed battery. Read all instructions before proceeding with the
installation of this battery.
The sealed battery is already filled with electrolyte and has been sealed
and fully charged at the factory. Never pry the sealing strip off or add
any other fluid to this battery.
The single most important thing about maintaining a sealed battery is to
keep it fully charged. Since the battery is sealed and the sealing strip
cannot be removed, you must use a voltmeter or multimeter to measure
DC voltage.
WARNING! An overheated battery may explode, causing severe injury or
death. Always watch charging times carefully. Stop charging if the battery
becomes very warm to the touch. Allow it to cool before resuming charging.
For a refresh charge, follow all instructions carefully.
1. Check the battery voltage with a voltmeter or multimeter. A fully
charged battery will register 12.8 V or higher.
2. If the voltage is less than 12.8 volts, recharge the battery at 1.2 amps
or less until battery voltage is 12.8 or greater.
3. When using an automatic charger, refer to the charger manufacturer's instructions for recharging. When using a constant current
charger, use the guidelines on the next page for recharging.

Washing the Vehicle
Keeping your Polaris vehicle clean will not only improve its appearance
but it can also extend the life of various components.
NOTICE:
High water pressure may damage components. Polaris
recommends washing the vehicle by hand or with a garden hose,
using mild soap.
Certain products, including insect repellents and chemicals, will
damage plastic surfaces. Do not allow these types of products to
contact the vehicle.
The best and safest way to clean your Polaris vehicle is with a garden
hose and a pail of mild soap and water.
1. Use a professional-type washing cloth, cleaning the upper body first
and the lower parts last.
2. Rinse with clean water frequently.
3. Dry surfaces with a chamois to prevent water spots.
Washing Tips
• Avoid the use of harsh cleaners, which can scratch the finish.
• Do not use a power washer to clean the vehicle.
• Do not use medium to heavy duty compounds on the finish.
• Always use clean cloths and pads for cleaning and polishing. Old or
reused cloths and pads may contain dirt particles that will scratch the
finish.
119
MAINTENANCE
Cleaning and Storage
Washing the Vehicle
If a high pressure water system is used for cleaning (not recommended),
exercise extreme caution. The water may damage components and could
remove paint and labels. Avoid directing the water stream at the following items:
• Wheel bearings
• Radiator
• Transmission seals
• Brakes
• Cab and body panels
• Labels and decals
• Electrical components and wiring
If warning and safety labels are damaged, contact your Polaris dealer for
free replacement.
Grease all zerk fittings immediately after washing. Allow the engine to
run for a while to evaporate any water that may have entered the engine
or exhaust system.
Polishing the Vehicle
Polaris recommends the use of common household aerosol furniture
polish for polishing the finish on your Polaris vehicle. Follow the
instructions on the container.
Polishing Tips
• Avoid the use of automotive products, some of which can scratch the
finish of your vehicle.
• Always use clean cloths and pads for cleaning and polishing. Old or
reused cloths and pads may contain dirt particles that will scratch the
finish.

Cleaning and Storage
MAINTENANCE
Chrome Wheel Care (if equipped)
Proper maintenance will protect chrome wheels from corrosion, preserve wheel life and ensure a "like new" appearance for many years.
Chrome wheels exposed to road salt (or salt in the air in coastal areas)
are more susceptible to corrosion if not properly cleaned. Clean chrome
wheels more often if they're exposed to salt or other corrosive elements.
1. Wash chrome wheels frequently. Use a mild detergent. Never use
abrasive cleaners on plated or painted surfaces.
2. Rinse well with clear water. Soap, detergents, salt, dirt, mud and
other elements can cause corrosion.
3. Polish the clean chrome wheels periodically. Use an automotive
grade chrome polish.
4. Routinely and liberally apply a weather resistant wax to each polished chrome wheel. Choose a product suitable for chrome finishes.
Read and follow the product labels and instructions.
Removing Corrosion
If light rust is found on the chrome finish, use steel wool (#0000-OTT
grade) to remove it. Gently rub the affected areas with the steel wool
until the corrosion has been removed. Clean and polish the wheel as outlined above.
121
MAINTENANCE
Cleaning and Storage
Storage Tips
NOTICE: Starting the engine during the storage period will disturb the
protective film created by fogging and damage could occur. Never
start the engine during the storage period.
Clean the Exterior
Make any necessary repairs and clean the vehicle as recommended. See
page 119.
Stabilize the Fuel
1. Fill the fuel tank.
2. Add Polaris Carbon Clean Fuel Treatment or Polaris Fuel Stabilizer.
Follow the instructions on the container for the recommended
amount. Carbon Clean removes water from fuel systems, stabilizes
fuel and removes carbon deposits from pistons, rings, valves and
exhaust systems.
3. Allow the engine to run for 15-20 minutes to allow the stabilizer to
disperse through the entire fuel delivery system.
Oil and Filter
Change the oil and filter. See page 83.
Air Filter / Air Box
1. Inspect and clean (or replace) the pre-cleaner and air filter. See page
99.
2. Clean the air box.

Storage Tips
Fluid Levels
Inspect the fluid levels. Add or change fluids as recommended in the
Periodic Maintenance Chart beginning on page 75.
• Demand drive unit (front gearcase)
• ADC fluid (ADC models) (change every two years)
• Rear gearcase (if equipped)
• Transmission
• Brake fluid (change every two years and any time the fluid looks dark
or contaminated)
• Coolant (test strength/fill)
Fog the Engine
1. Treat the fuel system with Polaris Carbon Clean. Follow the instructions on the container. Start the engine. Allow it to idle for several
minutes so the Carbon Clean reaches the injectors. Stop the engine.
2. Remove the spark plug and add 2-3 tablespoons of engine oil. To
access the plug hole, use a section of clear 1/4" hose and a small
plastic squeeze bottle filled with the pre-measured amount of oil.
Do this carefully. If you miss the plug hole, oil will drain from the
spark plug cavity into the hole at the front of the cylinder head, and
appear to be an oil leak.
3. Reinstall the spark plug. Torque to specification.
4. Apply dielectric grease to the inside of each spark plug cap and reinstall the caps onto the plugs.
5. Turn the engine over several times. Oil will be forced in and around
the piston rings and ring lands, coating the cylinder with a protective film of fresh oil.
6. If Polaris fuel system additive is not used, the fuel tank, fuel lines,
and injectors should be completely drained of gasoline.

WARRANTY
LIMITED WARRANTY
Polaris Sales Inc., 2100 Highway 55, Medina, MN 55340, gives a SIX MONTH LIMITED WARRANTY on all components of the Polaris All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) against
defects in material or workmanship. Polaris also gives a one year limited warranty on
the final drive chain for failure due to defects. This warranty covers the parts and labor
charges for repair or replacement of defective parts which are covered by this warranty.
This warranty begins on the date of purchase. This warranty is transferable to another
consumer during the warranty period through a Polaris dealer.
REGISTRATION
At the time of sale, the Warranty Registration Form must be completed by your dealer
and submitted to Polaris within ten days. Upon receipt of this registration, Polaris will
record the registration for warranty. No verification of registration will be sent to the
purchaser as the copy of the Warranty Registration Form will be the warranty entitlement. If you have not signed the original registration and received the customer copy,
please contact your dealer immediately. NO WARRANTY COVERAGE WILL BE
ALLOWED UNLESS YOUR ATV IS REGISTERED WITH POLARIS.
Initial dealer preparation and set-up of your ATV is very important in ensuring troublefree operation. Purchasing a machine in the crate or without proper dealer set-up will
void your warranty coverage.
138
WARRANTY
WARRANTY COVERAGE AND EXCLUSIONS:
LIMITATIONS OF WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES
The Polaris limited warranty excludes any failures that are not caused by a defect in
material or workmanship. This warranty does not cover accidental damage, normal wear
and tear, abuse or improper handling. This warranty also does not cover any ATV that
has been altered structurally, modified, neglected, improperly maintained, used for racing, or used for purposes other than for which it was manufactured, or for any damages
which occur during trailer transit or as a result of unauthorized service or the use of
unauthorized parts. In addition, this warranty does not cover physical damage to paint or
finish, stress cracks, tearing or puncturing of upholstery material, corrosion, or defects in
parts, components or the ATV due to fire, explosions or any other cause beyond Polaris'
control.
This warranty does not cover the use of unauthorized lubricants, chemicals, or fuels that
are not compatible with the ATV. The exclusive remedy for breach of this warranty shall
be, at Polaris' exclusive option, repair or replacement of any defective materials, or components or products. THE REMEDIES SET FORTH IN THIS WARRANTY ARE THE
ONLY REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO ANY PERSON FOR BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY. POLARIS SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO ANY PERSON FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES OF ANY DESCRIPTION,
WHETHER ARISING OUT OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR ANY
OTHER CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHER TORT OR OTHERWISE. Some
states do not permit the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages
or implied warranties, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you if
inconsistent with controlling state law.
139
WARRANTY
ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE) ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE ABOVE SIX
MONTH WARRANTY PERIOD. POLARIS FURTHER DISCLAIMS ALL EXPRESS
WARRANTIES NOT STATED IN THIS WARRANTY. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to
you if inconsistent with controlling state law.
HOW TO OBTAIN WARRANTY SERVICE
If your ATV requires warranty service, you must take it to a Polaris dealer authorized to
repair Polaris ATVs. When requesting warranty service you must present your copy of
the Warranty Registration form to the dealer. (THE COST OF TRANSPORTATION TO
AND FROM THE DEALER IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY). Polaris suggests that you
use your original selling dealer; however, you may use any Polaris Servicing Dealer to
perform warranty service.
Please work with your dealer to resolve any warranty issues. Should your dealer require
any additional assistance they will contact the appropriate person at Polaris.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which
vary from state to state.
If any of the above terms are void because of state or federal law, all other warranty
terms will remain in effect.
Engine Oil
1. Mixing oil brands or using non-recommended oil may cause engine damage. We recommend the use of Polaris engine oil for your ATV.
2. Damage resulting from the use of non-recommended lubricants may not be covered
by warranty.
SPARK ARRESTOR
Polaris warrants that the spark arrestor in this vehicle will meet the efficiency requirements of 43 CFR 8340.1(c) for at least 1000 hours when subjected to normal use and
when maintenance and installation are in accordance with Polaris recommendations.

how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply if it is inconsistent with the controlling state law.

handling, maintenance or use. This limited warranty also does not cover any engine that
has been structurally altered, or any engine that has been used in racing competition.
