Cold Weather Operation Polaris offers an engine heater kit for cold operation... If you use your ATV all year round, it is important to check your oil level frequently... A rising oil level could indicate the accumulation of water in the bottom of the oil tank... Water in the bottom of the tank can lead to engine damage and must be drained... Water accumulation increases as outside temperature decreases... The cold weather kit not only reduces moisture accumulation, but the heater will provide quicker warm-ups and easier starting... See your dealer for more information on cold weather operation and if the heater kit will enhance your cold weather operation...

Page 68

OPERATION Carrying Loads Your ATV 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... Maximum trailer weight - 1500 (680 kg) on level ground only with a maximum vertical hitch weight of 150 lbs... (68... 04 kg)... NOTE: The rear rack capacity and tongue weight should not exceed 180 lbs... Maximum grade while trailer towing - 15... Do not tow any trailer on a grade steeper than 15 (850 lbs on grades up to 15 )... Your machine is equipped with a front rack, take care when loading... Improper loading of the front rack can obstruct the headlight beam, reducing night visibility... Do not obstruct the headlight beam with cargo... Use of low forward gear is recommended in heavy pulling situations to extend belt life...

Page 69

Correct loading of this vehicle is necessary to maintain proper stability and operating characteristics... Overloading or incorrect positioning of the load affects the vehicles turning, stopping distance and stability... Failure to follow loading requirements could cause severe injury or death...

Page 70

DO NOT TRAVEL FASTER THAN THE REC- OMMENDED SPEEDS... Vehicle should never exceed 10 mph (16 kph) while towing a load on a level grass surface... Vehicle speed should never exceed 5 mph (8 kph) when tow- ing loads in rough terrain, while cornering, or while ascend- ing or descending a hill...

Page 94

MAINTENANCE AND LUBRICATION Periodic Maintenance Record Use the following chart to record periodic maintenance work:

Page 95

Coolant Level The recovery bottle(1), located on the left side of the machine, must be maintained between the minimum and maximum levels indicated on the recovery bottle... The engine coolant level is controlled or maintained by the recovery system... The recovery system components are the recovery bottle, radiator filler neck, radiator pressure cap and connecting hose... As coolant operating temperature increases, the expanding (heated) excess coolant is forced out of the radiator past the pressure cap and into the recovery bottle... As engine coolant temperature decreases the contracting (cooled) coolant is drawn back up from the tank past the pressure cap and into the radiator... NOTE: Some coolant level drop on new machines is normal as the system is purging itself of trapped air... Observe coolant levels 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... NOTE: Polaris Premium 60/40 is already premixed and ready to use... Do not dilute with water... NOTE: Always follow the manufacturers mixing recommendations for the freeze protection required in your area... To access the recovery bottle it is necessary to remove the left side panel as described on page 130...

Page 96

Radiator Coolant Level Inspection NOTE: This procedure is only required if the cooling system has been drained for maintenance and/or repair... However, if the recovery bottle has run dry, the level in the radiator should be inspected and coolant added if necessary... To access the radiator pressure cap: Using the tool provided, remove the four screws securing front rack (1)... Remove front cover (2) by placing your fingers under the front of the cover and pulling upward...

Page 97

Engine Cooling System NOTE: Use of a non-standard pressure cap will not allow the recovery system to function properly... If the cap should need replacement contact your dealer for the correct replacement part... To insure that the coolant maintains its ability to protect the engine, it is recommended that the system be completely drained every two years and a fresh mixture of antifreeze and water be added... 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... NOTE: Polaris Premium 60/40 is already premixed and ready to use... Do not dilute with water... NOTE: Always follow the manufacturers mixing recommendations for the freeze protection required in your area... Using a funnel, slowly add coolant as necessary through the radiator filler neck...

Low Range Use May Reduce PVT Operating Temperatures 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...

Page 127

PVT System 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, due to the systems dependence on engine speed... For example, when operating at a ground speed of 3 MPH 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, 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 which is too low to provide adequate pinch needed to prevent belt slip... This belt slip is responsible for creating the excessive heat that destroys belts and causes outer clutch covers to fail... By switching to low range while operating at low ground speeds, the air temperature in the clutch cover is reduced by almost 160 degrees... Reducing the temperature inside the clutch cover extends the life of the PVT components (belt, cover, etc... )... NOTE; Models without a low range should avoid heavy pulling and extended low-speed operation...

Replenishing the Battery Fluid A poorly maintained battery will deteriorate rapidly... Check the battery fluid level often... The fluid level should be kept between the upper and lower level marks... To refill use only distilled water... Tap water contains minerals which are harmful to a battery...

Page 130

Battery terminals and connections should be kept free of corrosion... If cleaning is necessary, remove the 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 rags... Coat the terminals with dielectric grease or petroleum jelly... Be careful not to allow cleaning solution or tap water into the battery...

Page 131

When installing a new battery, make certain it is fully charged prior to its initial use... Using a new battery that has not been fully charged can damage the battery resulting in a shorter life of the battery... It can also hinder vehicle performance...

Page 132

2... Place hand on top of side panel behind the fuel tank... With a quick and firm motion, push down on the side panel to disengage the top rear two tabs... Then pull up on side panel to disengage front upper and lower tab...

Page 133

Washing the ATV If a high pressure type car wash system is used, extreme care must be taken to avoid water damage to the wheel bearings, transmission seals, body panels, brakes and warning labels... Many expensive repair bills can result from using high pressure detergent systems... NOTE: If a high pressure car wash is used, grease all zerk fittings immediately after washing... Also run the vehicle to evaporate any water that might have entered the engine or exhaust system... The best and safest way to clean your ATV is with a garden hose and a pail of mild soap and water... Use a professional type washing mitten, cleaning the upper body first and the lower parts last... Rinse with water frequently and dry with a chamois to prevent water spots... NOTE: If warning labels are damaged, contact your a Polaris dealer for free replacement...

Page 134

MAINTENANCE AND LUBRICATION Cleaning and Storage Storage Tips Cleaning - Outside... Make necessary repairs and then clean the ATV thoroughly with a mild soap and warm water solution to remove all dirt and grime... Dont use harsh detergents or high pressure washers... Some detergents deteriorate rubber parts - use dish soap type cleaners only... High pressure washers may force water past seals... Drain the recoil housing... Stabilize Fuel - Add Polaris Carbon Clean Fuel Treatment or Polaris Fuel Stabilizer... Fill the fuel tank... Follow instructions on the container for recommended amount... Carbon clean will also reduce the possibility of bacterial growth in the fuel system... Its best to allow 15-20 minutes of operation for the stabilizer to disperse through the fuel in the tank and carburetor... Turn the fuel valve to OFF and drain the carburetor bowl completely... Oil And Filter Change - (4-Strokes) Warm the engine and change oil and filter... Air Filter / Air Box - Inspect and clean or replace the pre-cleaner and air filter... Clean the air box and drain the sediment tube... Breather Filter- Inspect and clean or replace the breather filter... Inspect All Fluid Levels - Inspect the following fluid levels and change if necessary: rear grear case; front gear case ; transmission; brake fluid (change every two years or as required if fluid looks dark or contaminated)... Check and Lubricate Cables / Grease - Inspect all cables and lubricate with Polaris Cable Lubricant... Follow lubrication guidelines in the Maintenance Section of the Service or Owners Manual to completely grease and lubricate the entire vehicle with Polaris Premium All Season Grease...

Page 135

Battery Maintenance - Remove the battery and add distilled water as required to the proper level... Do not use tap water which may contain minerals that reduce battery life... Apply Polaris Di-Electric Grease to the terminal bolts and terminals... Charge the battery at 1... 4 amps or less until specific gravity of each cell is 1... 265 or greater... Store the battery in a cool, dry, place... Charge can be maintained easily by using Polaris Battery Tender charger (PN 2871076) 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... The only thing you need to do is check the fluid level once a month... Engine Anti-Freeze - Test engine coolant strength and change if necessary... Coolant should be replaced every 2 years... Storage Area/Covers - Set tire pressure and safely support the ATV with the tires 1-2 off the ground... Be sure the storage area is well ventilated... Cover the machine with a genuine Polaris ATV cover... NOTE: Do not use plastic or coated materials... They do not allow enough ventilation to prevent condensation, and may promote corrosion and oxidation...
