Stalling, rolling backwards or improperly dismounting while
climbing a hill.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
The vehicle could overturn.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Maintain steady speed when climbing a hill
If all forward speed is lost: Keep your weight uphill. Apply the
front brakes gradually (right lever). When fully stopped, apply the
foot brake as well and then lock the parking brake.
If the ATV begins rolling backwards: Keep weight uphill. Never apply engine power. Never apply the
rear brake while rolling backwards. Apply the front brake slowly. When fully stopped, apply rear
brake as well, and then lock the parking brake. Dismount on uphill side, or to either side if pointed
straight uphill. Use the K-Turn to turn the ATV around and remount. See page 86.
