Polaris 2010 99 Ranger Offroad Vehicle User Manual

Disengaging Wheel Hubs
When backing uphill while in Demand 6 Drive and then going forward downhill, one
or both hubs may remain engaged. If one or both hubs remain engaged they can
be disengaged by stopping, shifting to and moving in reverse. Then proceed in
forward again.
You can tell if only one front hub is engaged if the steering pulls to one side. If both
front wheel hubs are engaged, steering effort increases but remains balanced from
left to right, and vehicle speed is somewhat restricted.
WARNING: If both hubs were engaged and only one released during opera-
tion, loss of control could result. If you experience hub engaging symptoms, use
the above disengaging technique before proceeding. Failure to disengage front
hubs as directed above could result in severe injury or death.
If the hubs remain engaged after following these instructions return the vehicle to
your dealer for service.
PVT System
The PVT system rotates at high speeds, creating large amounts of force
on clutch components. Extensive engineering and testing has been con-
ducted to insure the safety of this product. However, as the owner you
have the following responsibilities to make sure this system remains safe:
D Do not modify any component of the PVT system. Doing so may
reduce its strength so that a failure may occur at high speeds. This
system has been precision balanced. Any modification will cause the
system to be out of balance, creating vibration and additional loads
on components.
D Routine maintenance is the responsibility of the owner. Always fol-
low recommended maintenance procedures. See your dealer!
D This PVT system is intended for use on Polaris products only.
D The PVT housing must be securely in place during operation.
Failure to comply with this warning can result in severe injury or death.
