Features and Controls
Foot Brake
The foot brake operates the rear brakes. The brake
pedal is located in front of the right-hand footpeg.
If the rear wheels slide while using the foot brake,
reduce brake pedal pressure to brake the wheels
without skidding.
Check the brake fluid level frequently for the foot
brake system. The reservoir is located under the
seat. Maintain the fluid level between the minimum
and maximum marks.
Check the rear brake light for proper operation
before each use of the vehicle. See page 132.
Aggressively applying the foot brake when backing down a hill may cause rear tipover, which could
result in serious injury or death. Use caution when applying the foot brake. Do not aggressively
apply the foot brake when going forward. The rear wheels may skid and slide sideways, causing
loss of control and serious injury or death.
