Washing the Vehicle
Keeping your POLARIS vehicle clean will not only improve its appear-
ance but it can also extend the life of various components.
NOTICE: High water pressure may damage components. POLARIS
recommends washing the vehicle by hand or with a garden hose,
using mild soap.
Certain products, including insect repellents and chemicals, will
damage plastic surfaces. Do not allow these types of products to
contact the vehicle.
The best and safest way to clean your POLARIS vehicle is with a gar-

1. Use a professional-type washing cloth, cleaning the upper body first
and the lower parts last.
2. Rinse with clean water frequently.
3. Dry surfaces with a chamois to prevent water spots.
