Polaris 300 2X4 Offroad Vehicle User Manual

Throttle Lever
Engine speed and vehicle move-
ment are controlled by pressing the
throttle lever. The throttle lever is
spring loaded. Engine speed returns
to idle when the lever is released.
This ATV is equipped with Polaris
Electronic Throttle Control (ETC),
which is designed to reduce the risk
of a frozen or stuck throttle. If the
throttle cable should stick in an
open position when the operator releases the throttle lever, the engine
will stop, and power to the rear wheels will cease.
Operating an ATV with sticking or improperly operating throttle controls could
cause an accident and lead to severe injury or death.
Never start or operate an ATV with a sticking or improperly operating throttle.
Always contact your dealer for service if throttle problems arise.
Failure to check or maintain proper operation of the throttle system can result
in an accident if the throttle lever sticks during operation. Always check the
lever for free movement and return before starting the engine. Also check
occasionally during operation.
Modifications to the ETC could result in failure to perform as designed, which
could result in severe injury or death. Do not attempt to modify the ETC sys-
tem or replace it with any after market throttle mechanisms. Always ensure
that the throttle cable is properly installed to the ETC.
