WELCOME DEAR PARENTS: We believe your children should have the opportunity to enjoy the snowmobile riding experience along with you... We've provided this owner's manual to assist you and your children in learning about the safe operation and care of your new POLARIS snowmobile... Please review the information in this manual with any child who may operate the snowmobile... Help your children learn to operate the snowmobile with safety as a top priority... Help them also learn to show respect for our environment and for the rights of others while operating the snowmobile... Since the operator will be a newcomer to the exciting winter sport of snowmobiling, please be sure he/she understands this information before riding the snowmobile... Never allow a child to operate the snowmobile without adult supervision... This owner's manual contains instructions for minor maintenance, but major repairs are covered in the POLARIS Service Manual and should be performed by a factory certified Master Service Dealer (MSD) technician... Your POLARIS dealership can perform all of your service needs during, and after, the warranty period...

Page 11

PARENTS: Do not allow anyone under the age of six (6) to operate this machine... Review the information in this manual with any child who may be operating the snowmobile... It is up to you to teach any operator the proper and safe way to ride a snowmobile... You must set boundaries and adhere to them, keeping the operator's safety foremost in your mind... Never allow a child to operate this machine without adult supervision...

Page 12

NOISE One of the most publicized subjects with regard to snowmobiles is noise... The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), which is the standard-setting body for snowmobiles, has recommended that snowmobiles conform to prescribed sound levels... This POLARIS snowmobile has been engineered to conform to these SAE standards... In order to be meaningful, all regulations require the cooperation of the snowmobile owner... Muffling systems, designed to reduce noise levels, should not be altered or removed... Snowmobile drivers must be aware that they have a public responsibility to operate their snowmobiles with concern for others... As a snowmobile operator you may not realize the sound of your snowmobile may annoy non-snowmobilers... We are attempting to do our part through the manufacture of quieter machines, and we also ask your help in the effort to further reduce the impact of noise...

SAFETY EQUIPMENT MODIFICATIONS All POLARIS snowmobiles have been designed and tested to provide safe operation when used as directed... Failure of critical machine components may result from operation with any modification; especially those that increase speed or power... There is a significant possibility of loss of control at higher speeds... We are concerned for the safety of our customers and for the general public... Any modifications to the original equipment of the vehicle create a substantial safety hazard and increase the risk of bodily injury... Therefore, we strongly recommend that consumers do not install on a POLARIS snowmobile any equipment that may increase the speed or power of the vehicle, or make any other modifications to the vehicle for these purposes...

Page 16

This vehicle is intended for daylight use in restricted off-road areas clear of obstacles, primarily on snow and not on frozen bodies of water, by a child of not less than 6 years of age who is in the presence of, and in active supervision of an adult... Use of this vehicle on public trails, streets, roads, and highways can be hazardous and is prohibited by law in most cases...

Page 17

ENGINE STOP SWITCH When the engine is running, push this button down to stop the engine... Pull the stop switch up before trying to start the engine again...

Page 18

HEADLIGHT The headlight is always on when the engine is running... It helps others see you when you're riding during daylight, but it's not meant to be strong enough to help you see in the dark... Drive your snowmobile only in the daylight...

Page 19

SEAT AND STORAGE When the engine is stopped, you can take the seat cushion off and put things under the seat... Push the two seat latches in and pull the seat up to remove it... Always put the seat back on and make sure the latches are locked in place before riding again...

Page 20

TETHER STRAP/SWITCH Always attach the tether strap to your body and to the switch q on your snowmobile every time you drive... If you fall off your snowmobile, the tether strap will pull away from the switch and the engine will stop... When you attach the strap to your body, you can clip it to a loop on your clothing w, or you can wrap the strap around your right wrist e and attach the clip to the strap...

Page 21

PRE-RIDE CHECK You're almost ready to have an adult start your snowmobile... But first you must do a PRE-RIDE CHECK to make sure the snowmobile is safe to ride... Every time you want to ride your snowmobile, always have an adult help you check these things before you start the engine...

Page 22

THROTTLE LEVER Squeeze the throttle lever toward the handlebar and then let it go... The lever should go right back to where it was before you squeezed it... If it goes back slowly or stays close to the handlebar, you have a sticky throttle... This means that something is wrong or broken...

Page 23

RIDING RULES Now you're ready to learn about driving your POLARIS snowmobile... This snowmobile is not a toy... There are some things you can do and there are some things you must never do... Rules are very important when you're driving a snowmobile... Adults have riding rules, too... The rules help keep us safe when we ride... You must be at least six (6) years old before you can ride this snowmobile... The adult with you is your teacher... Always pay attention to what your teacher says so you can learn how to always drive safely...

Page 24

Learn if there are lakes, rivers, ponds and ditches in your driving area... Stay away from them... Never ride on frozen water... Your snowmobile could fall through the ice into the water and you could drown or freeze to death...

Page 25

RIDING APPAREL Always wear the right kind of clothing when you ride your snowmobile... Always wear a helmet with a face shield or goggles... Wear a warm jacket and snowpants... Make sure your clothing fits properly... Tight clothing could keep you from moving easily... Baggy clothing could hang down and get caught in the track or another moving part... Never wear a long scarf... Wear warm snowmobile boots and gloves, and make sure your boot laces are tied... If you have long hair, tie it up or put it inside your helmet or jacket...

Page 26

HAND SIGNALS Learn how to use your hands and arms as signals... Use these signals to let others know when you are getting ready to turn or stop your snowmobile... Read and understand your Owner's Manual...

Page 29

READ AND UNDERSTAND YOUR OWNER'S MANUAL Read and make sure the operators understand the Owner's Manual completely before allowing anyone to operate this snowmobile... It's also a good idea to review it periodically to reinforce the information... It's very important to familiarize all operators with the cautions and warnings pertaining to the machine as well as safe operating procedures... We've attempted to provide you with as much information as possible to alert you to the safety requirements of snowmobiling...

Page 30

The throttle safety switch is designed to stop the engine whenever all pressure is removed from the throttle lever and the throttle cable or valve does not return to the normal closed position... If excessive play develops in the throttle cable, the safety switch may be activated and will prevent the engine from starting... If the engine doesn't start and throttle safety switch malfunction is suspected, you can bring the machine to your authorized POLARIS dealer for service...

Page 31

WARNING The drive chain guard is designed to protect the operator from metal parts in the event of a drive chain failure... Although the chance of failure is extremely

Page 32

HELMET Wearing a helmet can prevent a severe head injury... Whenever riding a POLARIS vehicle, always wear a helmet that meets or exceeds established safety standards... Approved helmets in the USA and Canada bear a U... S... Department of Transportation (DOT) label... Approved helmets in Europe, Asia and Oceania bear the ECE 22... 05 label... The ECE mark consists of a circle surrounding the letter E, followed by the distinguishing number of the country which has granted approval... The approval number and serial number will also be displayed on the label...

Page 33

SIT PROPERLY ON THE SNOWMOBILE Operating a snowmobile requires skill and balance for proper control... An improper position can reduce the child's ability to control the snowmobile... The riding position may vary as the operator becomes more skilled, but under most conditions the proper position is to be seated with both feet on the running boards, in a comfortable position for proper throttle, brake and steering control...

Page 34

KNOW LIMITATIONS OF MACHINE AND SKILLS OF DRIVER The operator should be aware that most areas have laws governing snowmobile operation and that these laws should be followed... They have been established for the protection of all snowmobile riders... Many local organizations offer a snowmobile safety course for children... Check with local authorities to locate providers of this service...

Page 35

DRIVE-AWAY FROM PARKED When the snowmobile has been parked for more than a few hours, especially overnight, the skis and track may freeze to the ground... Loosen the skis and track for the operator... You may have to apply extra throttle initially to move the snowmobile... Teach operators not to be afraid of applying extra throttle in this situation, but make sure they understand that too much throttle could cause the snowmobile to lurch forward...

Page 36

ICE AND HARD-PACKED SURFACES Steering and braking control are substantially reduced when operating on hard surfaces, hard-packed snow or icy surfaces... Teach your child to reduce speed to maintain control in all driving conditions... If necessary, limit the maximum speed of the snowmobile as outlined on page 39... If ice or slippery conditions are unavoidable, use extreme caution and operate at speeds no faster than a walk... The skis need snow to help the snowmobile make turns... On hard surfaces the snowmobile will not make turns easily... It may be best to stop the engine, dismount, and manually move the front or rear of the snowmobile to change direction...

Page 37

DRIVING ON HILLS Traveling on hills is not recommended... A child may not be capable of maneuvering body weight as needed for operating on hills... If traveling on hills is unavoidable, teach your child to use extreme caution and obey the following proper operating procedures...

OPERATION ENGINE BREAK-IN The break-in period for your new snowmobile is defined as the first ten hours of operation, or the time it takes to use the first two tanks full 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 performance and longer life for the engine...

Page 40

refueling is performed or where gasoline is stored... Do not overfill the tank... Do not fill the tank neck... If gasoline spills on your skin or clothing, immediately wash it off with soap

Page 41

SPEED/PERFORMANCE REGULATION As the adult, you must teach the child the proper and safe way to ride a snowmobile... Set boundaries and adhere to them, keeping the child's safety foremost in your mind... Never allow the child to operate this vehicle without adult supervision... You can regulate the speed and acceleration of the snowmobile...

Page 42

DAILY STORAGE At the end of each ride, park the snowmobile on a level surface... Support the rear with an appropriate track stand... The track should be suspended approximately 4 (10 cm) off the ground... Cover the snowmobile with an appropriate snowmobile cover...

Page 43

EMISSION CONTROL INFORMATION EMISSION CONTROL LABEL Your snowmobile is equipped at the time of sale with an emission control information (ECI) label and a factory-installed emissions information hangtag... These items are required by U... S... Environmental Protection Agency regulations... The ECI label is permanently affixed to either the right side of the tunnel or the engine recoil cover... The ECI label should not be removed, even after you purchase the snowmobile... You may remove the factory-installed emissions information hangtag, which is intended solely for your use in making a purchasing decision...

Page 45

MAINTENANCE POLARIS RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE PROGRAM To ensure many trouble-free miles of snowmobiling enjoyment, follow recommended regular maintenance and perform service checks as outlined in this manual... Record maintenance and service in the Maintenance Log beginning on page 83... The recommended maintenance schedule for your snowmobile calls for a service and maintenance inspection at 50 hours, at 100 hours and at 150 hours... These inspections should be performed by a qualified service technician...

Page 46

PERIODIC MAINTENANCE CHART The following chart is a guide based on average riding conditions... You may need to increase frequency based on riding conditions... When inspection reveals the need for replacement parts, always use genuine POLARIS parts, available from your POLARIS dealer...

Page 48

SPARK PLUGS A new engine can cause temporary spark plug fouling due to the preservative added during the assembly process... Avoid prolonged idle speeds, which cause plug fouling and carbonization... Refer to the specifications section for recommended spark plug type and gap...

Page 49

Proper carburetor adjustment is critical, since a mixture too lean (too much air, too little fuel) will result in overheating of the combustion chamber, causing pre- ignition of the fuel... This results in piston burning, bearing failure or complete engine failure... A lean mixture can be the result of fuel line restrictions or foreign matter in the carburetor... A mixture too rich (too much fuel, too little air) is also unfavorable because it can foul plugs and cause generally poor engine performance... All carburetors have been pre-set at the factory to the settings indicated by the shaded cells of the jetting chart on page 72... Higher altitude operation may require different adjustment and settings...

Page 50

Correct setup provides engine RPM within its given power band at full throttle settings and also provides maximum efficiency and operation at all other throttle openings... Your dealer can assist with carburetor adjustments, which may include the following:

Page 51

4... Check the actuator linkage to ensure there is adequate freedom of movement for positive brake operation and that all floating parts move freely and that all parts are mounted securely... Tighten hardware as required...

Page 52

CHOKE/CABLE LUBRICATION Lubricate the choke slide and cables occasionally as shown... Operate the choke intermittently before turning the engine off... This draws moisture out of the choke plunger area and reduces the possibility of the choke becoming frozen...

Page 53

bracket r on the chassis, replace the chain... Inspect the sprockets as they also wear and often need replacement when the chain is replaced...

Page 54

Lubricate Point A every 15 hours of operation with a small amount of POLARIS Premium All Season Grease...

Page 55

ENGINE OIL OIL RECOMMENDATIONS POLARIS recommends the use of Performance Synthetic 4-Stroke oil (PS-4 or PS-4 Plus) for this engine... PS-4 has been specially formulated for use in POLARIS 4-cycle snowmobile engines... It's a fully synthetic, high performance, multi-viscosity oil designed to provide the ultimate in lubrication performance and protection... Always check and change the oil at the intervals outlined in the Periodic Maintenance Chart beginning on page 44... Perform the break-in oil change after 20 hours of operation... Always change the oil any time it's contaminated with water, fuel or debris...

Page 56

Page 61

SLIDER REPLACEMENT POLARIS rail slides have a wear limit indicator groove to indicate the minimum permissible slide thickness q... Replace the rail slides if they are worn to the top of the groove w at any point along their length... Failure to do so may result in permanent damage to the track or rails...

Page 62

STEERING SYSTEM The steering systems on POLARIS snowmobiles can be adjusted with ski toe alignment... Improper toe alignment can cause erratic steering... Your dealer can assist with adjustments...

Page 63

STEERING ADJUSTMENT With the handlebars in a straight ahead position, and with vehicle weight compressing the suspension, measure from the straight edge of the skis at the center of the ski mounting bolt... The measurement between the skis at point X should be 1/8 (3 mm) greater than the measurement at point Y...

Page 64

SKI SKAGS The skag q is a replaceable bar attached to the underside of the ski... The purpose of the skag is to assist in turning the snowmobile and to prevent the wearing away of the ski caused by contact with roads and other bare terrain... Check skags weekly to maintain positive steering characteristics... Replace skags when they are worn to half their original diameter...

Page 65

TRACK LUBRICATION Track failure, loss of vehicle control and braking ability can result from extended use of this vehicle on surfaces providing marginal lubrication between the slider and track guide clips... Examples of marginal lubrication would include lakes without snow cover, icy trails and no-snow conditions... The slide rail is designed to operate in conditions with adequate snow cover in order to provide sufficient lubrication... Excessive wear indicates insufficient lubrication... A new slider can cause faster heat build up in limited lubrication than a used slider, resulting in excessive wear...

Page 66

To maintain rider comfort and to retard wear of the pivot shafts, lubricate the suspension pivot shafts with POLARIS Premium All Season Grease several times during the season and again before summer storage each year... Lack of lubrication will result in reduced performance and a less comfortable riding experience...

Page 67

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS Separate the electrical connector blocks and clean corrosive build-up from the connectors... Lubricate the blocks with dielectric grease and re-connect... Replace worn or frayed electrical wire and connectors... Be sure wiring harnesses are properly secured away from sharp edges, steering linkage, moving parts, and hot exhaust components...

Page 68

WAXING THE VEHICLE Your snowmobile can be waxed with any high quality brand of automotive paste wax... Avoid the use of harsh cleaners since they can scratch the body finish...

Page 69

TRACK AND SUSPENSION Support the rear of the snowmobile slightly off the ground with an appropriate snowmobile support... This will allow the track to hang freely... Elevate the front end of the machine and place blocks securely under it to remove tension from the shocks and springs... This will minimize fatigue on the front shocks and springs...

Page 70

TOWING Do not pull or tow any person or object behind this snowmobile... If a disabled snowmobile must be towed by another snowmobile, attach the tow rope to the spindles of the disabled snowmobile, not to the ski toe loops...
