Page 26

Throttle lever Once the engine is running, movement of the throttle lever will increase the engine speed... Regulate the speed of the machine by varying the throttle position... Because the throttle is spring-loaded, the machine will decelerate, and the engine will return to an idle any time the hand is removed from the throttle lever...

Page 27

Speed limiter The speed limiter keeps the throttle from fully opening, even when the throttle lever is pushed to the maximum... Screwing in the adjuster limits the maximum engine power available and decreases the maximum speed of the ATV...

Page 28

Front brake lever The front brake lever is located on the right han- dlebar... Pull it toward the handlebar to apply the front brake...

Page 29

The ATV could start moving unexpectedly if the parking brake is not applied before starting the engine... This could cause loss of control or a collision... The brake could overheat if you ride the ATV without releasing the parking brake... You could lose braking performance which could cause an accident... You could also wear out the brakes prematurely...

Page 30

Drive select lever The drive select lever is used for driving the machine either forward or in reverse... Refer to page 6-4 for drive select lever operation...

Page 31

RES: This indicates reserve... If you run out of fuel while riding, turn the lever to this position... THEN FILL THE FUEL TANK AT THE FIRST OPPORTUNITY... After refuelling, return the fuel cock lever to the ON position...

Page 32

Starter (choke) Starting a cold engine requires a richer air-fuel mixture... A separate starter circuit supplies this mixture... Move in direction a to turn on the starter (choke)... Move in direction b to turn off the starter (choke)... Refer to Starting a cold engine for proper oper- ation... (See page 6-1... )

Engine oil and Check oil level... 5-5, 8-5~8-9Transmission oil Fill with oil if necessary...

Page 35

2... Brake operation Test the brakes at slow speed after starting out to make sure they are working properly... If the brakes do not provide proper braking performance, inspect the brakes for wear... (See page 8-18... )

Page 36

Always check the brakes at the start of every ride... Do not ride the ATV if you find any problem with the brakes... If a problem cannot be corrected by the adjustment procedures provided in this manual, have the ATV inspected by a Yamaha dealer...

Page 37

Your Yamaha engine has been designed to use regular unleaded gasoline with a pump octane number ([R+M]/2) of 86 or higher, or research octane number of 91 or higher... If knocking or pinging occurs, use a different brand of gasoline or premium unleaded fuel... Unleaded fuel will give you longer spark plug life and reduced maintenance cost... If unleaded gasoline is not available, then leaded regular gasoline can be used...

Page 38

cC Be sure to use motor oils that do not contain anti-friction modifiers... Passenger car motor oils (often labeled Energy Conserving) contain anti-friction additives which will cause clutch and/or starter clutch slippage, resulting in reduced component life and poor engine performance...

Page 39

Fittings and Fasteners Always check the tightness of chassis fittings and fasteners before a ride... Take the machine to a Yamaha dealer or refer to the Service Manual for correct tightening torque...

Page 40

specified could cause the tire to dis- lodge from the rim under severe riding conditions... The following are minimums: Front 17 kPa (0... 17 kgf/cm2, 2... 5 psi) Rear 22 kPa (0... 22 kgf/cm2, 3... 2 psi)

Page 41

4... Use no more than the following pres- sures when seating the tire beads... Front 250 kPa (2... 5 kgf/cm2, 36 psi) Rear 250 kPa (2... 5 kgf/cm2, 36 psi) Higher pressures may cause the tire to burst... Inflate the tires very slowly and carefully... Fast inflation could cause the tire to burst...

Page 42

Tire wear limit When the tire groove decreases to 3 mm (0... 12 in) due to wear, replace the tire...

Page 43

Read the Owners Manual carefully... If there is a control or function you do not understand, ask your Yamaha dealer...

Page 44

neutral indicator light should come on... If the light does not come on, ask a Yamaha dealer to inspect it...

Page 45

NOTE: If the engine fails to start, release the start switch, then push the start switch again... Pause a few seconds before the next attempt... Each cranking should be as short as possible to pre- serve battery energy... Do not crank the engine more than 10 seconds on each attempt...

Page 46

cC Before shifting, you must stop the machine and return the throttle lever to its closed position... Otherwise, the transmission may be damaged...

Page 47

NOTE: If the drive select lever is shifted into reverse while the engine is running, the engine will stop unless the parking brake is applied...

Page 48

Engine break-in There is never a more important period in the life of your machine than the period between zero and 20 hours... For this reason, we ask that you carefully read the following material... Because the engine is brand new, you must not put an excessive load on it for the first several hours of running... During the first 20 hours, the various parts in the engine wear and polish themselves to the correct oper- ating clearances... During this period, prolonged full throttle opera- tion or any condition which might result in exces- sive engine heating must be avoided... However, momentary (2 ~ 3 seconds maximum) full throt- tle operation under load does not harm the engine...

Page 49

2... 10 ~ 20 hours: Avoid prolonged operation above 3/4 throt- tle... Rev the machine freely through the gears but do not use full throttle at any time...

Page 50

Avoid parking on hills or other inclines... If you must park on an incline, place the machine transversely across the incline, apply the parking brake, and block the front and rear wheels with rocks or other objects... Do not park the ATV at all on hills that are so steep you could not walk up them easi- ly...

Page 51

ATV... Your Yamaha dealer has a variety of genuine Yamaha accessories... Other acces- sories may also be available on the market... However, it is not possible for Yamaha to test all non-Yamaha accessories, nor have any control over the quality or suitability of them... Choose a genuine Yamaha accessory, or one that is equivalent in design and quality...

Page 52

Loading As originally equipped, this ATV is not designed to carry cargo or tow a trailer... If you choose to add accessories so that you can carry cargo or tow a trailer, you must use common sense and good judgment... Keep the following points in mind: 8 Never exceed the weight limits shown... An

Page 59

Use by children of ATVs that are not rec- ommended for their age can lead to severe injury or death of the child...

Page 60

Never carry a passenger... The long seat is to allow the operator to shift position as needed during operation... It is not for car- rying passengers...

Page 61

Operating without an approved motorcy- cle helmet increases your chances of a severe head injury or death in the event of an accident... Operating without eye protection can result in an accident and increases your chances of a severe injury in the event of an accident...

Page 62

Could seriously affect your judgment... Could cause you to react more slowly... Could affect your balance and perception... Could result in an accident...

Page 63

Always inspect your ATV each time you use it to make sure the ATV is in safe oper- ating condition... Always follow the inspection and mainte- nance procedures and schedules described in the Owners Manual...

Page 64

Speed limiter For riders inexperienced with this model, this model is equipped with a speed limiter in the throttle lever housing... The speed limiter limits the power and top speed of the machine... Turning the screw in decreases top speed, and turning it out increases top speed...

Page 65

Never exceed the stated load capacity for this ATV... Cargo should be properly distributed and securely attached... Reduce speed when carrying cargo or pulling a trailer... Allow greater distance for braking... Always follow the instructions in your Owners Manual for carrying cargo or pulling a trailer...

Page 66

Removing even one hand or foot can reduce your ability to control the ATV or could cause you to lose your balance and fall off of the ATV... If you remove a foot from a footboard, your foot or leg may come into contact with the rear wheels, which could injure you or cause an acci- dent...

Page 67

Avoid wheelies and jumping... You may lose con- trol of the machine or overturn...

Page 68

Never modify this ATV through improper installation or use of accessories... All parts and accessories added to this vehicle should be genuine Yamaha or equivalent components designed for use on this ATV and should be installed and used accord- ing to instructions... If you have questions, consult an authorized ATV dealer...

Page 69

Exhaust system The exhaust system on the machine is very hot during and following operation... To prevent burns, avoid touching the exhaust system... Park the machine in a place where pedestrians or children are not likely to touch it...

Page 70

ATVs are designed for off-road use only... Paved surfaces may seriously affect han- dling and control of the ATV, and may cause the vehicle to go out of control...

Page 71

Never operate this ATV on any public street, road or highway, even a dirt or gravel one... In many states it is illegal to operate ATVs on public streets, roads and highways...

Page 72

Know the terrain where you ride... Ride cautiously in unfamiliar areas... Stay alert for holes, rocks, or roots in the terrain, and other hidden haz- ards which may cause the machine to upset...

Page 73

Do not operate on excessively rough, slip- pery or loose terrain until you have learned and practiced the skills necessary to control the ATV on such terrain... Always be especially cautious on these kinds of terrain...

Page 74

When riding in an area where you might not easily be seen, such as desert terrain, mount a caution flag on the machine... DO NOT use the flag pole bracket as a trailer hitch...

Page 75

With the engine idling, return the starter knob to the closed position and shift the drive select lever into the forward position... Then release the parking brake... Apply the throttle slowly and smoothly... The centrifugal clutch will engage and you will start to accelerate... If the throttle is applied too abruptly, the front wheels may lift off the ground resulting in a loss of directional con- trol... Avoid higher speeds until you are thorough- ly familiar with the operation of your ATV...

Page 76

TURNING YOUR ATV To achieve maximum traction while riding off- road, the two rear wheels are mounted solidly on one axle and turn together at the same speed... Therefore, unless the wheel on the inside of the turn is allowed to slip or lose some traction, the ATV will resist turning... A special turning technique must be used to allow the ATV to make turns quickly and easily... It is essential that this skill be learned first at low speed... As you approach a curve, slow down and begin

Page 77

Once you have learned this technique you should be able to perform it at higher speeds or in tighter curves... Improper riding procedures such as abrupt throt- tle changes, excessive braking, incorrect body movements, or too much speed for the sharp- ness of the turn may cause the ATV to tip... If the ATV begins to tip over to the outside while nego- tiating a turn, lean more to the inside... It may also be necessary to gradually let off on the throttle and steer to the outside of the turn to avoid tipping over... Remember: Avoid higher speeds until you are thoroughly familiar with the operation of your ATV...

Page 78

CLIMBING UPHILL Use proper riding techniques to avoid vehicle overturns on hills... Be sure that you can maneu- ver your ATV well on flat ground before attempt- ing any incline and then practice riding first on gentle slopes... Try more difficult climbs only after you have developed your skill... In all cases avoid inclines with slippery or loose surfaces, or obsta- cles that might cause you to lose control...

Page 79

Always follow proper procedures for climb- ing hills as described in this Owners Manual... Always check the terrain carefully before you start up any hill... Never climb hills with excessively slippery or loose surfaces... Shift your weight forward... Never open the throttle suddenly... The ATV could flip over backwards... Never go over the top of any hill at high speed...

Page 80

Never attempt to turn the ATV around on any hill until you have mastered the turn- ing technique as described in the Owners Manual on level ground... Be very careful when turning on any hill... Avoid crossing the side of a steep hill if possible...

Page 82

If your ATV has stalled or stopped and you believe you can continue up the hill, restart care- fully to make sure you do not lift the front wheels which could cause you to lose control... If you are unable to continue up the hill, dismount the ATV on the uphill side... Physically turn the ATV around and then descend the hill...

Page 83

Dismount on uphill side or to a side if pointed straight uphill... Turn the ATV around and remount, following the proce- dure described in the Owners Manual...

Page 84

RIDING DOWNHILL When riding your ATV downhill, shift your weight as far to the rear and uphill side of the ATV as possible... Move back on the seat and sit with your arms straight... Improper braking may cause a loss of traction... Use caution while descending a hill with loose or slippery surfaces... Braking ability and traction may be adversely affected by these surfaces... Improper braking may also cause a loss of trac- tion... Whenever possible, ride your ATV straight downhill... Avoid sharp angles which could allow the ATV to tip or roll over... Carefully choose your path and ride no faster than you will be able to react to obstacles which may appear...

Page 86

CROSSING A SLOPE Traversing a sloping surface on your ATV requires you to properly position your weight to maintain proper balance... Be sure that you have learned the basic riding skills on flat ground before attempting to cross a sloping surface... Avoid slopes with slippery surfaces or rough ter- rain that may upset your balance...

Page 87

Shift your weight to the uphill side of the ATV...

Page 88

CROSSING THROUGH SHALLOW WATER The ATV can be used to cross slow moving, shal- low water of up to a maximum of 20 cm (7... 9 inch- es) in depth... Before entering the water, choose your path carefully... Enter where there is no sharp drop off, and avoid rocks or other obstacles which may be slippery or upset the ATV... Drive slowly and carefully...

Page 89

cC After riding your ATV in water, be sure to drain the trapped water by removing the check hose at the bottom of the air filter case... Wash the ATV in fresh water if it has been operated in salt water or muddy condi- tions...

Page 90

RIDING OVER ROUGH TERRAIN Riding over rough terrain should be done with caution... Look out for obstacles which could cause damage to the ATV or could lead to an upset or accident... Be sure to keep your feet firmly mounted on the footboards at all times... Avoid jumping the ATV as loss of control and damage to the ATV may result...

Page 92

SLIDING AND SKIDDING Care should be used when riding on loose or slippery surfaces since the ATV may slide... If unexpected and uncorrected, sliding could lead to an accident... To reduce the tendency for the front wheels to slide in loose or slippery conditions, positioning your weight over the front wheels will sometimes help...

Page 93

With practice, over a period of time, skill at con- trolled sliding can be developed... The terrain should be chosen carefully before attempting such maneuvers, since both stability and control are reduced... Bear in mind that sliding maneu- vers should always be avoided on extremely slippery surfaces such as ice, since all control may be lost...

Page 94

8 If your ATV cant make it up a hill you are try- ing to climb: Turn the ATV around if you still have forward speed... If not, stop, dismount on the uphill side of the ATV and physically turn the ATV around... If the ATV starts to slip backwards DO NOT USE THE REAR BRAKE - the ATV may tip over on top of you... Dismount the ATV on the uphill side... (See pages 7-24 ~ 7-29... )

Page 95

8 If your ATV is traversing a sloping surface: Be sure to ride with your weight positioned towards the uphill side of the ATV to maintain proper balance... If the ATV starts to tip, steer down the hill (if there are no obstacles in your way) to regain balance... If you discover that the ATV is going to tip over, dismount on the uphill side... (See pages 7-32 ~ 7-33... )

Page 96

Periodic inspection, adjustment and lubrication will keep your machine in the safest and most efficient condition possible... Safety is an obliga- tion of the machine owner... The most important points of machine inspection, adjustment and lubrication are explained on the following pages...

Page 97

The service information included in this manual is intended to provide you, the owner, with the necessary information for completing your own preventive maintenance and minor repairs... The tools provided in the Owners tool kit are suffi- cient for this purpose, except that a torque wrench is also necessary to properly tighten nuts and bolts...

Page 104

Spark plug inspection The spark plug is an important engine compo- nent and is easy to inspect... The condition of the spark plug can indicate the condition of the engine... For example, a very white center electrode porcelain color could indicate an intake air leak or carburetion problem for that cylinder... Do not attempt to diagnose such problems yourself... Instead, take the machine to a Yamaha dealer... You should periodically remove and inspect the spark plug because heat and deposits will cause the spark plug to slowly break down and erode... If electrode erosion becomes excessive, you should replace the spark plug with one of the proper type...

Page 105

NOTE: There is a check hose at the bottom of the air fil- ter case... If dust or water collects in this hose, empty the hose and clean the air filter element and air filter case...

Page 106

d... Remove the air filter element, and sepa- rate it from the guide...

Page 107

h... Apply Yamaha foam air filter oil or other quality foam air filter oil to the element... If foam air filter oil is not available, motor oil may be used...

Page 108

NOTE: The air filter element should be cleaned every 20 ~ 40 hours... It should be cleaned and lubricat- ed more often if the machine is operated in extremely dusty areas... Each time filter element maintenance is performed, check the air inlet to the filter case for obstructions... Check the air cleaner rubber joint to the carburetor and mani- fold fittings for an airtight seal... Tighten all fittings securely to avoid the possibility of unfiltered air entering the engine...

Page 109

d... Tap the element lightly to remove most of the dust and dirt... Blow out the remaining dirt with compressed air... If the element is damaged, replace it...

Page 110

1... Start the engine and warm it up for a few minutes at approximately 1,000 to 2,000 r/min... Occasionally rev the engine to 4,000 to 5,000 r/min... The engine is warm when it quickly responds to the throttle...

Page 111

Valve clearance adjustment The correct valve clearance changes with use, resulting in improper fuel/air supply or engine noise... To prevent this, the valve clearance must be adjusted regularly... This adjustment however, should be left to a professional Yamaha service technician...

Page 112

NOTE: Adjust the engine idling speed before adjusting the throttle lever free play...

Page 113

Front and rear brake shoe inspection A wear indicator is provided on each brake... The indicators allows checking of brake shoe wear without disassembling the brake... Apply the brake and check the position of the indicator... If the indicator reaches the wear limit line, ask a Yamaha dealer to replace the shoes as a set...

Page 114

The front brake lever free play should be adjust- ed to 10 ~ 12 mm (0... 4 ~ 0... 5 in) at the brake lever pivot... If the free play is incorrect, adjust as follows:
