INTRODUCTORY SAFETY MESSAGE TO PARENTS ANATV ISNOTATOYANDCANBEHAZARDOUSTOOPERATE... AnATVhandles differently from other vehicles including motorcycles and cars... A collision or rollover can occur quickly, even during routine maneuvers such as turning and driving on hills or over obstacles, if you fail to take proper precautions... Children differ in skills, physical abilities, and judgement... Some children may not be able to operate an ATV safely... Parents should supervise their childs use of the ATV at all times... Parents should permit continued use only if they determine that the child has the ability and maturity to operate the ATV safely...

Page 8

Always follow the age guidelines for your machine... Youth ATVs are designed and intended for use by children in two age groups... The Scrambler 50 is for children not less than 6 years of age... The Scrambler 90 and the Sportsman 90 are for chil- dren not less than 12 years of age... No children under the age of 16 should ride an ATV designed and sold for an adult...

Page 9

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 sched- ules described in this manual...

Page 10

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 havemastered the turning technique described in this manual on level ground... Avoid crossing the side of a steep hill if possible...

Page 11

Always use proper procedures if you stall or roll backwards when climbing a hill... To avoid stalling, maintain a steady speed when climbing a hill... If you stall or roll backwards, follow the special procedure for braking described in this manual... Dis- mount on the uphill side or to either side if pointed straight uphill... Turn the ATV around and remount, following the procedure described in this manual...

Polaris 2-Cycle Lubricants Polaris has a family of premium oils available for use in all our products and highly recommends their use... The only oils recommended for Polaris 2-cycle ATVs are Po- laris Premium 2-cycle oil or Premium Gold Synthetic 2-cycle oil...

Page 103

CONTROL AND PARTS FUNCTIONS Polaris Premium 2-cycle lubricants are the most advanced formulation of oils spe- cifically designed for todays 2-cycle engines... Months of lab and field tests have resulted in a new generation of 2-cycle lubricants... Polaris Premium 2-cycle lubri- cants provide additives for 2-cycle engines lacking in todays fuel that keep ring grooves cleaner for less ring sticking and provide improved overall engine cleanli- ness... With new generation lubricity technology, they excel in meeting the lubrica- tion demands of todays high performance 2-cycle engines... These are optimum oils recommended for liquid cooled and air cooled 2-cycle engines... We believe these oils are the best available in the market today...

RIDING GEAR Safe Riding Gear Always wear clothing suited to the type of riding you are doing... ATV riding requires special protective clothing which will make you feel more comfortable and reduce chances of injury... 1... Helmet Your helmet is the most important piece of protec- tive gear for safe riding... A helmet can prevent a severe head injury... Select an approved helmet which meets or exceeds your states safety standards and bears either the Department of Transportation (DOT) label, the American National Standards Institute label (ANSI z90... 1), or the Snell Memorial Foundation label...

Page 108

RIDING GEAR 2... Eye Protection Do not depend on sunglasses for proper eye protection... A pair of goggles or hel- met face shield offer the best protection for your eyes... They should be kept clean and be of shatterproof design (bearing the markings z2... 1 or VESC 8)... 3... Gloves Off-road style gloves with knuckle pads are the best for comfort and protection... 4... Boots The best footwear is a pair of strong over the calf type boots with heels, such as moto-cross boots... 5... Clothing To protect your body, long sleeves and pants should always be worn... Riding pants with kneepads, a jersey and shoulder pads provide the best protection...

Page 109

VEHICLE BREAK-IN PERIOD 2-Cycle Engines The break in period for your new Polaris ATV is defined as the time it takes to use the first tank of gasoline... No single action on your part is as important as a proper break in period... Careful treatment of a new engine will result in more efficient per- formance and longer life for the engine... Perform the following procedures careful- ly...

Page 110

Do not operate at full throttle or high speeds for extended periods during the first three hours of use... Excessive heat can build up and cause damage to close fitted engine parts...

Page 111

After the first tank of pre-mixed fuel has been used please verify that the oil level in the oil tank has dropped, indicating that the oil pump is functioning properly... If the level has not dropped, see your dealer for oil pump bleeding and repeat the pre-mix procedure...

Page 112

CARRYING LOADS The Sportsman 90 has been designed to carry a certain amount of load... CARGO WEIGHT should be evenly distributed (1/3 on the front and 2/3 on the rear) and mounted as low as possible... When operating over rough or hilly terrain, reduce speed and cargo to maintain stable driving conditions... Never exceed the weights specified and never attempt to carry cargo on the Scrambler models...

Page 113

D CARGO WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION should be 1/3 on the front rack and 2/3 on the rear rack... When operating over rough or hilly terrain, reduce speed and cargo to maintain stable driving conditions... Carrying loads on one rack only increases the possibility of vehicle tip over...

Page 114

D LOADS MUST BE CARRIED AS LOW ON THE RACKS AS POSSIBLE... Carrying loads high on the racks raises the center of gravity of the ve- hicle and creates a less stable operating condition... When cargo loads are carried high on the racks, the weight of the loads must be reduced to maintain stable operating conditions...

Page 115

D EXTREME CAUTION MUST BE USED when operating with loads extend- ing over the rack sides... Stability and maneuverability may be adversely affected, causing the machine to overturn...

Page 116

You must inspect your ATV each time before riding to ensure it is in proper working order... If proper check is not done, severe injury or death could result...

Page 117

7... Wheels - check for tightness of wheel nuts and axle nuts; check that axle nuts are secured by cotter pins

Page 118

11... Loose parts - visually inspect vehicle for any damaged or loose nuts/bolts or fas- teners

Page 120

5... Slowly depress the throttle with your right thumb and begin driving... Vehicle speed is controlled by the amount of throttle opening...

Page 122

RIDING Practice making turns at slow speeds... Polaris ATVs are equipped with a solid rear axle which drives both rear wheels equally at all times... This means that the wheel on the outside of the turn must travel a greater distance than the inside wheel when turning and the inside tire must slip traction slightly... To turn, steer in the direction of the turn leaning your upper body to the inside of the turn while supporting your weight on the outer foot- rest... This technique alters the balance of traction between the rear wheels allow- ing the turn to be made smoothly...

Page 123

Whenever riding on slippery surfaces such as wet trails or loose gravel, or dur- ing cold freezing weather, special attention must be paid to prevent vehicle turnover... Always:

Page 124

body weight forward... 4... Never apply brakes during a skid... Complete loss of ATV control can result... 5... Do not operate on excessively slippery surfaces if possible to avoid... 6... Always reduce speed and use additional caution...
