Making Turns
Practice making turns at slow speeds before attempting to turn at faster speeds.
Your ATV is equipped with a solid rear axle, which drives
both rear wheels equally at all times. The wheel on the outside
of the turn travels a greater distance than the inside wheel
when turning, and the inside tire slips traction slightly.
To turn, steer in the direction of the turn, leaning your upper
body to the inside of the turn while supporting your weight on
the outer footpeg. This technique alters the balance of traction
between the rear wheels, allowing the turn to be made
The same leaning technique should be used for turning in reverse.
Turning at sharp angles or at excessive speeds can result in vehicle overturn and lead to serious
injury or death. Avoid turning at sharp angles. Never turn at high speeds.
