Never operate on excessively rough, slippery 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. Always follow proper procedures for turning as described in this manual. Practice turning at low speeds before attempting to turn at faster speeds and never turn at excessive speeds. Never operate the ATV on hills too steep for the ATV or for your abilities. Practice on smaller hills before attempting larger hills. G G G G Always follow proper procedures for climbing hills as described in this manual. 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.

On extremely slippery surfaces, such as ice, go slowly and be very cautious in order to reduce the chance of skidding or sliding out of control. Never operate an ATV in fast flowing water or in water deeper than that recommended in this manual. Remember that wet brakes may have reduced stopping ability. Test your brakes after leaving water.

Box 6555 Cypress, California 90630 11 11-6 WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Q. What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period? A. The customer’s responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services, non-warranty repairs, accident and collision damages, and oil, oil filters, air filters, spark plugs, and brake shoes. Q. What are some examples of “abnormal ” strain, neglect, or abuse? A. These terms are general and overlap each other in areas. Specific examples include: Running the machine out of oil, sustained high rpm, full-throttle, operating the machine with a broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail, damage or failure due to improper or careless transportation and or tie-down. If you have any specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your dealer for advice. Q. Does the warranty cover incidental costs such as towing or transportation due to a failure? A. No. The warranty is limited to repair of the machine itself. Q. May I perform any or all of the recommended maintenance shown in the Owner’s Manual instead of having the dealer do them? A. Yes, if you are a qualified mechanic and follow the procedures specified in the Owner’s and Service Manual. We do recommend, however, that items requiring special tools or equipment be done by a Yamaha ATV dealer. Q. Will the warranty be void or cancelled if I do not operate or maintain my new ATV exactly as specified in the Owner’s Manual? A. No. The warranty on a new ATV cannot be “voided ” or “cancelled. ” However, if a particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than as described in the Owner’s Manual, that failure may not be covered under warranty. Q. What responsibility does my dealer have under this warranty? A. Each Yamaha ATV dealer is expected to: 1. Completely set up every new machine before sale. 2. Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your satisfaction at the time of sale, and upon your request at any later date. 3. Each Yamaha ATV dealer is held responsible for his setup, service and warranty repair work. Q. Is the warranty transferable to second owners? A. Yes. The remainder of the existing warranty can be transferred upon request. The unit has to be inspected and re-registered by an authorized Yamaha ATV dealer for the policy to remain effective.

Y.E.S. is designed and administered by Yamaha Motor Corporation to provide maximum owner satisfaction. You get uninterrupted factor y-backed coverage for extra peace of mind. Y. E. S. is flexible.
