Safe Riding Gear

Eye Protection

Do not depend on eyeglasses or sunglasses for eye protection.

Whenever riding this POLARIS vehicle, always wear shatterproof goggles or use a shatterproof helmet face shield. POLARIS recommends wearing approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) bearing markings such as VESC 8, V-8, Z87.1, or CE. Make sure protective eye wear is kept clean.

Gloves

Wear gloves for comfort and for protection from sun, cold weather and other elements.

Boots

Wear sturdy over-the-ankle boots for support and protection. Never ride a POLARIS vehicle with bare feet or sandals.

Clothing

Rider Comfort

Under certain operating conditions, heat generated by the engine and exhaust system can elevate temperatures in the driver and passenger cab area. The condition occurs most frequently when a vehicle is being operated in high ambient temperatures at low speeds and/or high load conditions for an extended period of time. The use of certain windshield, roof and/or cab systems may contribute to this condition by restricting airflow. Any discomfort due to heat buildup in this area can be minimized by wearing proper riding apparel and by varying speeds to increase airflow.

FEATURES AND CONTROLS

Brake Pedal

Depress the brake pedal to slow or stop the vehicle. Apply the brakes while starting the engine.

Throttle Pedal

Push the pedal down to increase engine speed. Spring pressure returns the pedal to the rest position when released. Always check that the throttle pedal returns normally before starting the engine. Make sure there's adequate throttle pedal freeplay.

Brake

Pedal

See page 70 for throttle pedal adjustment procedures.

Throttle

Pedal

This vehicle is equipped with a throttle release switch, which is designed to reduce the risk of a frozen or stuck throttle. If the throttle cable should stick in an open position when the operator releases the throttle pedal, engine speed will be limited to idle speed.

The throttle release switch limits engine speed in the event of a throttle system malfunction. Modifications to the throttle release switch could result in failure to perform as designed, which could result in an accident.

Do not attempt to modify the throttle control system or replace it with any after market throttle mechanism. Always ensure that the throttle cable is installed and properly routed to the throttle control.

OPERATION

WARNING

Failure to operate the vehicle properly can result in a collision, loss of control, accident or rollover, which may result in serious injury or death. Read and understand all safety warnings outlined in the safety section of this owner’s manual.

Vehicle Break-in Period

The break-in period for your new POLARIS vehicle is defined as 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 a proper break-in period.

Careful treatment of a new engine and drive components will result in more efficient performance and longer life for these components.

Perform the following procedures carefully.

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.

Mixing brands or using a non-recommended oil may cause serious engine damage. Always use the recommended oil. Never substitute or mix oil brands.

36

OPERATION

Vehicle Break-in Period

Engine and Drivetrain Break-in

1. Fill the fuel tank with gasoline. Always exercise extreme caution whenever handling gasoline. Never allow a child to handle gasoline.

2. Check the oil level. See page 59. Add the recommended oil as needed to maintain the oil level in the safe operating range.

3. Complete the New Operator Driving Procedures outlined on pages

42-43.

4. Avoid aggressive use of the brakes. See Brake System Break-in below.

5. Vary throttle positions. Do not operate at sustained idle.

6. Perform regular checks on fluid levels, controls and areas outlined on the daily pre-ride inspection checklist. See page 38.

7. Change the engine oil at 10 hours or one month.

8. Adjust and lubricate the drive chain at 10 hours or one month.

Brake System Break-in

MAINTENANCE

Periodic Maintenance Chart

Any qualified repair shop or person may maintain, replace or repair the emission control devices or systems on your vehicle. An authorized

POLARIS dealer can perform any service that may be necessary for your vehicle. POLARIS also recommends POLARIS parts for emissions-related service, however equivalent parts can be used.

It is a potential violation of the Clean Air Act if a part supplied by an aftermarket parts manufacturer reduces the effectiveness of the vehicle’s emission controls. Tampering with emission controls is prohibited by federal law.

Owners are responsible for performing the scheduled maintenance identified in this owner’s manual.

Careful periodic maintenance will help keep your vehicle in the safest, most reliable condition. Inspection, adjustment and lubrication of important components are explained in the periodic maintenance chart.

Inspect, clean, lubricate, adjust and replace parts as necessary. When inspection reveals the need for replacement parts, genuine POLARIS parts are available from your POLARIS dealer. Equivalent parts may be used for emissions-related service.

Record maintenance and service in the Maintenance Log beginning on page 106.

Service and adjustments are important for proper vehicle operation. If you're not familiar with safe service and adjustment procedures, a qualified dealer can perform these operations.

Vehicles subjected to heavy or severe use patterns must be inspected and serviced more frequently.

Severe Use Definition

• Frequent immersion in mud, water or sand

• Racing or race-style high RPM use

• Prolonged low speed operation

• Extended idle

• Short trip cold weather operation

Pay special attention to the oil level. A rise in oil level during cold weather can indicate contaminants collecting in the oil sump or crankcase. Change oil immediately if the oil level begins to rise.

Monitor the oil level, and if it continues to rise, discontinue use and determine the cause. Your POLARIS dealer can assist.

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.

3. Reinstall the spark plug. Torque to specification. See page 65.

4. Apply dielectric grease to the inside of the spark plug cap. Do not

reinstall the cap onto the plug at this step.

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 fuel system additive is not used, fuel tank, fuel lines, and injectors should be completely drained of gasoline.

7. Reinstall the spark plug cap to the spark plug.

Battery Maintenance

See pages 83-85 for storage and charging procedures.

Storage Area/Covers

Be sure the storage area is well ventilated. Cover the vehicle with a genuine POLARIS cover. Do not use plastic or coated materials. They do not allow enough ventilation to prevent condensation, and may promote corrosion and oxidation.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Drive Belt Wear/Burn

Possible Cause Solution

Driving at low RPM or ground speed

Insufficient warm-up at low ambient temperatures

Drive at a higher speed.

Warm the engine at least 5 minutes. With the transmission in neutral, apply small amount of throttle in short bursts, 5 to 7 times. The belt will become more flexible and prevent belt burning.

Use the throttle quickly and effectively.

Slow/easy clutch engagement

Belt slippage from water or snow ingestion into the

CVT system

Dry out the CVT (see page 66). Prevent water from

entering the CVT inlet and outlet ducts (see page 86).

Inspect clutch seals for damage if repeated leaking occurs.

WARRANTY

U.S.A. EPA Emissions Limited Warranty

This emissions limited warranty is in addition to the POLARIS standard limited warranty for your vehicle. POLARIS Industries Inc. warrants that at the time it is first purchased, this emissions-certified vehicle is designed, built and equipped so it conforms with applicable U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emission regulations.

POLARIS warrants that the vehicle is free from defects in materials and workmanship that would cause it to fail to meet these regulations.

The warranty period for off road vehicles 100cc or greater emissions-certified vehicles starts on the date of purchase by original retail purchaser and continues for a period of

500 hours of engine operation, 5000 kilometers (3100 miles) of vehicle travel, or 30 calendar months from the date of purchase, whichever comes first. The warranty period for ATVs less than 100cc emissions-certified vehicles starts on the date of purchase by original retail purchaser and continues for a period of 250 hours of engine operation,

2500 kilometers (1550 miles) of vehicle travel, or 30 calendar months from the date of purchase, whichever comes first. This EPA emissions warranty period is extended for at least as long as the standard factory warranty that Polaris provides on the vehicle as a whole. The EPA emissions warranty period does not further extend if you purchase additional warranty coverage in the form of a service contract or other paid warranty extension, but emission-related parts may be covered subject to the terms of any such paid service contract or paid warranty extension.

This emissions limited warranty covers components whose failure increases the vehicle's regulated emissions, and it covers components of systems whose only purpose is to control emissions. Repairing or replacing other components not covered by this warranty is the responsibility of the vehicle owner. This emissions limited warranty does not cover components whose failure does not increase the vehicle's regulated emissions.

For exhaust emissions, emission-related components include any engine parts related to the following systems:

• Air-induction system

• Fuel system

• Ignition system

• Exhaust gas recirculation systems

The following parts are also considered emission-related components for exhaust emissions:

• Aftertreatment devices

• Crankcase ventilation valves

• Sensors

• Electronic control units

103

WARRANTY

U.S.A. EPA Emissions Limited Warranty

The following parts are considered emission-related components for evaporative emissions:

• Fuel Tank

• Fuel Cap

• Fuel Line

• Fuel Line Fittings

• Clamps*

• Pressure Relief Valves*

• Control Valves*

• Control Solenoids*

• Electronic Controls*

• Vacuum Control Diaphragms*

• Control Cables*

• Control Linkages*

• Purge Valves

• Vapor Hoses

• Liquid/Vapor Separator

• Carbon Canister

• Canister Mounting Brackets

• Carburetor Purge Port Connector

*As related to the evaporative emission control system.

Emission-related components also include any other part whose only purpose is to reduce emissions or whose failure will increase emissions without significantly degrading engine/equipment performance. The exclusive remedy for breach of this limited warranty shall be, at the exclusive option of POLARIS, repair or replacement of any defective materials, components or products. THE REMEDIES SET FORTH IN

THIS LIMITED 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. THIS EXCLUSION OF

CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, AND SPECIAL DAMAGES IS INDEPENDENT

FROM AND SHALL SURVIVE ANY FINDING THAT THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY

FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY

IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A

PARTICULAR PURPOSE) ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY

PERIOD DESCRIBED HEREIN. POLARIS 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 if it is inconsistent with the controlling state law.

This limited warranty excludes failures not caused by a defect in material or workmanship. This limited warranty does not cover damage due to accidents, abuse or improper handling, maintenance or use. This limited warranty also does not cover any engine that has been structurally altered, or when the vehicle has been used in racing competition. This limited warranty also does not cover physical damage, corrosion or defects caused by fire, explosions or other similar causes beyond the control of

POLARIS.

104

WARRANTY

U.S.A. EPA Emissions Limited Warranty

Owners are responsible for performing the scheduled maintenance identified in the owner's manual. POLARIS may deny warranty claims for failures that have been caused by the owner's or operator's improper maintenance or use, by accidents for which

POLARIS has no responsibility, or by acts of God.

Any qualified repair shop or person may maintain, replace, or repair the emission control devices or systems on your vehicle. An authorized POLARIS dealer can perform any service that may be necessary for your vehicle. POLARIS also recommends

POLARIS parts, however equivalent parts may be used for such service. It is a potential violation of the Clean Air Act if a part supplied by an aftermarket parts manufacturer reduces the effectiveness of the vehicle's emission controls. Tampering with emission controls is prohibited by federal law.

California Residents

Certain POLARIS Off-Road Vehicles are available in 49-state and 50-state versions.

Only the 50-state models are certified for sale in California. The 50-state models available for sale in California are identified by the letter “B” in the ninth position of the model number (e.g., R16RTE87B). The POLARIS 50-state models are designed and built with features such as a reduced cargo box capacity. Any modifications to these features may be a violation of the applicable California regulations and may void this limited emissions warranty offered by the manufacturer.
