Polaris 450 S Offroad Vehicle User Manual

Features and Controls
Hand Brake
The hand brake operates the front brakes. The
hand brake is located on the right handlebar.
Squeeze the brake lever toward the handlebar to
engage the front brakes. These brakes are
hydraulically activated disc type brakes.
Always test brake lever travel and master cylin-
der fluid level before riding. When squeezed, the
lever should feel firm. Any sponginess would
indicate a possible fluid leak or low master cylin-
der fluid level, which must be corrected before
riding. Contact your dealer for proper diagnosis
and repairs.
Operating the ATV with a spongy brake lever can result in loss of braking, which could cause an
accident. Never operate the ATV with a spongy-feeling brake lever.
