Overloading the vehicle or carrying or towing cargo improperly can alter
vehicle handling and may cause loss of control or brake instability. Always
follow these precautions when hauling cargo:
Never exceed the stated load capacity for this vehicle.
Never carry cargo on the rear rack when operating the ATV in the 2-up mode
with a passenger.
REDUCE SPEED AND ALLOW GREATER DISTANCES FOR BRAKING
WHEN HAULING CARGO.
REDUCE SPEED AND CARGO to maintain stable driving conditions when
operating over rough or hilly terrain.
WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION in the cargo bed should be as far forward and as
low as possible. Carrying a high load raises the center of gravity and creates
a less stable operating condition. Reduce load weight when cargo is high.
When handling off-centered loads that cannot be centered, secure the load
and operate with extra caution.
SECURE ALL LOADS BEFORE OPERATING. Unsecured loads may shift
and create unstable operating conditions, which could result in loss of control
of the vehicle. Always be sure that the cargo bed is lowered and latched
before moving the vehicle.
USE EXTREME CAUTION when operating with loads extending beyond the
rack or cargo bed. Stability and maneuverability may be adversely affected,
causing the machine to overturn.
BALANCE LOADS proportionally between the front rack and cargo bed, but
do not exceed the stated load capacity. Carrying a load on only the front rack
or cargo bed may cause an imbalanced condition and increases the
possibility of vehicle overturn.
USE EXTREME CAUTION when applying brakes with a loaded vehicle.
Avoid terrain or situations that may require backing downhill.
Always attach the tow load to the hitch point.
DO NOT TRAVEL FASTER THAN THE RECOMMENDED SPEEDS. The
vehicle should never exceed 10 mph (16 kph) while towing a load on a level
surface. Vehicle speed should never exceed 5 mph (8 kph) when towing
loads in rough terrain, while cornering, or while ascending or descending a
DO NOT BLOCK THE FRONT HEADLIGHT BEAM when carrying loads on
the front rack.
