Auxiliary Foot Brake
Never back down a hill. Applying the auxiliary brake when backing down a hill
may cause rear tipover, which could result in serious injury or death.
Use caution when applying the auxiliary brake. Do not aggressively apply the
auxiliary brake when going forward. The rear wheels may skid and slide
sideways, causing loss of control and serious injury or death.
The auxiliary brake system is intended to be used as a backup for the
main brake system. Should the main system fail, use the auxiliary foot
brake. Since this is a rear brake only, it will not be as effective as the all-
wheel single lever system.
The auxiliary foot brake is located
on the inside of the right footrest.

If the rear wheels slide while
using the auxiliary brake, reduce
brake pedal pressure to brake the
rear wheels without skidding.
Brake Fluid Level
Check the brake fluid level fre-
quently for the auxiliary brake
system. The reservoir is located
under the seat on the left side of
the vehicle. Maintain the fluid
level between the maximum and
minimum marks.
