ATV Disclaimer & Safety Information
Riding an ATV can be dangerous. To ensure your safety proper protective gear should always be worn. Remember to always wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing. Never ride on paved surfaces or public roads. Never carry passengers unless the ATV is specifically engineered to accommodate them.

Powersports is a real cool hobby to take up but it is best to know something about the sport before venturing into it. Making sure your product is safe to ride in will help you prolong the life of the vehicle and your own as well! Reading this article will give you a clear understanding of the safety methods you can adopt

Product Setup and Maintenance
A Qualified Mechanic Must perform Final Assembly and Setup of your Product Before Operating
Failure by the Customer to have a Qualified Mechanic perform the Setup of a Powersports product can result in Injury or Death. 
You are purchasing a product Factory Direct. The Product arrives in a crate and must be uncrated and properly assembled and setup prior to operation. All of the nuts, bolts, screws and linkages should be regularly checked to make sure that the product is safe to ride again. The engine should be kept dirt free and you need to be extra vigilant about the throttle linkage area. Tire pressure should be checked and psi topped up to required standard before every use. You will get the recommended inflation pressure figures on tire wall. Incorrect pressure results in instability and poor steering and braking.

Products have different guards including the chain guard, torque converter guard, jack shaft guard and belt clutch guard. When repair work is required, you have to remove the relevant guard first. The covers are there for the riders protection and care should be taken to replace them correctly after the repair work is completed and prior to running the product.

General safety
When your go kart starts to vibrate abnormally or make funny noises, its a warning sign that something is wrong. Turn off the engine immediately and then disconnect the spark plug wire. Usually an excessive amount of noise or vibration indicates loose or worn out parts.

Powersports products should be stored in a place free of gasoline fumes to avoid sparks being ignited; this could lead to a full blown fire. Winter storage of the product requires you to drain the tank completely if it is a fuel operated product. Choose a cool, open space to perform the draining operation rather than an enclosed or warm place. The engine should have completely cooled off before you store it away

Your product manual and other literature that was supplied with the product should be kept very safely. You will find the need to refer to the product operation manual when repair work needs to be performed. If you no longer have the product documentation, contact the manufacturer to obtain a copy before operating the product.

Products with a single seat are meant for one person and the double seat for two people. Do not even think of attempting to ride a product without being seated and securing your seat belt when applicable
