HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Avoid operating the ATV through deep or fast-flowing water. If it's unavoidable to enter water that
exceeds the recommended maximum depth (see page 90), travel slowly, balance your weight
carefully, avoid sudden movements, and maintain a slow and steady forward motion. Do not make
sudden turns or stops, and do not make sudden throttle changes.
Wet brakes may have reduced stopping ability. Always test the brakes after leaving water. If
necessary, apply them several times to let friction dry out the pads.
