The reason for this recall: In affected units, the protective boots covering the steering systems tie-rod ends (universal joints) could be pinched during installation or adjustment, cutting a hole in the rubber. If this occurs, grease could escape from and contaminants such as sand or mud
could get into the assembly through the hole, causing accelerated wear. This could result in abnormal steering free play. If the ATV continues to be operated without repair, there is the potential that the ball and socket portion of the tie-rod end could wear to the point that they separate, resulting in loss of steering control, which could cause a vehicle crash with injury or death. What Yamaha has done: To correct this possible defect, Yamaha is initiating a Factory Modification Campaign in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Affected ATVs must have the tie-rod ends replaced with ones that have a different socket housing design to prevent the boot from being pinched. What you should do now: Do not operate your Yamaha ATV until this important modification is performed. If you are not the first owner of the ATV, and are unsure if this modification has been done, contact any authorized Yamaha Motorsports Dealer to check. Any authorized Yamaha Motorsports Dealer can perform this service. For the name and location of a dealer near you, call 1-800-88-YAMAHA or visit the Dealer Locator section of this website.

Parking When parking, stop the engine and shift the drive select lever into the park position, then turn the fuel cock to the OFF position.
Parking on a slope
POTENTIAL HAZARD Parking on a hill or other incline. WHAT CAN HAPPEN The ATV could roll out of control, increasing the chance of an accident. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Avoid parking on hills or other inclines. If you must park on an incline, place the machine transversely across the incline, apply the parking brake, and block the front and rear wheels with rocks or other objects. Do not park the ATV at all on hills that are so steep you could not walk up them easily.
1. Bring the machine to a stop by applying the brakes. 2. Stop the engine. 3. With the brake pedal applied, shift the drive select lever to the park position P.
Accessories and loading
Accessories Accessories can affect the handling and control of your ATV. Keep the following in mind when considering an accessory or operating an ATV which has accessories. G Choose only accessories designed for your ATV. Your Yamaha dealer has a variety of genuine Yamaha accessories. Other accessories may also be available on the market. However, it is not possible for Yamaha to test all non-Yamaha accessories, nor have any control over the quality or suitability of them. Choose a genuine Yamaha accessory, or one that is equivalent in design and quality.
Accessories should be rigidly and securely mounted. An accessory which can shift position or come off while you are riding could affect your ability to control the ATV. Do not mount an accessory where it could interfere with your ability to control the ATV. Examples include (but are not limited to) a heavy or bulky object attached to the handlebars which could make steering difficult, an accessory that limits your ability to move around on the seat, or one that limits your view. Use extra caution when riding an ATV with accessories. The ATV may handle differently than it does without accessories.
Loading Cargo or a trailer can change the stability and handling of an ATV. You must use common sense and good judgment when carrying cargo or towing a trailer. Keep the following points in mind: G Never exceed the weight limits shown. An overloaded ATV can be unstable. MAXIMUM LOADING LIMIT G Vehicle loading limit (total weight of cargo, rider and accessories, and tongue weight): 210 kg (463 lb) G Front carrier: 40 kg (88 lb) G Rear carrier: 80 kg (176 lb) G Storage compartment: 2.0 kg (4 lb) G Trailer hitch: Pulling load (total weight of trailer and cargo): 500 kgf (1,102 lbf) Tongue weight (vertical weight on trailer hitch point): 15 kgf (33 lbf)
Do not exceed the maximum tongue weight. You can measure tongue weight with a bathroom scale. Put the tongue of the loaded trailer on the scale with the tongue at hitch height. Adjust the load in the trailer, if necessary, to reduce the weight on hitch. If you are carrying cargo and towing a trailer, include the tongue weight in the maximum vehicle load limit. Load cargo on the carrier as close to the center of the vehicle as possible. Put cargo at the rear of the front carrier and at the front of the rear carrier. Center the load from side to side. Tie down cargo securely to the carriers. Make sure cargo in the trailer cannot move around. A shifting load can cause an accident. Make sure the load does not interfere with controls or your ability to see where you are going.
Ride more slowly than you would without a load. The more weight you carry, the slower you should go. Although conditions vary, it is good practice not to exceed low range whenever you are carrying heavier loads or when towing a trailer. Allow more braking distance. A heavier vehicle takes longer to stop. Avoid making sharp turns unless at very slow speeds. Avoid hills and rough terrain. Choose terrain carefully. Added weight affects the stability and handling of the ATV.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Operating this ATV at speeds too fast for your skills or the conditions. WHAT CAN HAPPEN Increases your chances of losing control of the ATV, which can result in an accident. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Always go at a speed that is proper for the terrain, visibility and operating conditions, and your experience.
Speed limiter For riders less experienced with this model, this model is equipped with a speed limiter in the throttle lever housing. The speed limiter keeps the throttle from fully opening, even when the throttle lever is pushed to the maximum. Turning in the adjusting screw limits the maximum engine power available and decreases the maximum speed of the ATV. Turning the adjusting screw in decreases top speed and turning it out increases top speed. (See pages 4-144-15 for details.)
1. Locknut 7-10
2. Adjusting screw
Loading and accessories Use extra caution when riding the ATV with additional loads, such as accessories or cargo. The ATVs handling may be adversely affected. Reduce your speed when adding additional loads. MAXIMUM LOADING LIMIT G Vehicle loading limit: 210 kg (463 lb) * Total weight of cargo, rider and accessories, and trailer hitch vertical load. G Front carrier: 40 kg (88 lb) G Rear carrier: 80 kg (176 lb) G Storage compartment: 2.0 kg (4 lb) G Trailer hitch: Pulling load: 500 kgf (1,102 lbf) Total weight of trailer and cargo. Tongue weight: 15 kgf (33 lbf) Vertical weight on trailer hitch point.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Overloading this ATV or carrying or towing cargo improperly. WHAT CAN HAPPEN Could cause changes in vehicle handling which could lead to an accident. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Never exceed the stated load capacity for this ATV. Cargo should be properly distributed and securely attached. Reduce speed when carrying cargo or pulling a trailer. Allow greater distance for braking. Always follow the instructions in your Owners Manual for carrying cargo or pulling a trailer.
During operation Always keep your feet on the footboards during operation. Otherwise your feet may contact the rear wheels.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Removing hands from handlebars or feet from footboards during operation. WHAT CAN HAPPEN Removing even one hand or foot can reduce your ability to control the ATV or could cause you to lose your balance and fall off of the ATV. If you remove a foot from a footboard, your foot or leg may come into contact with the rear wheels, which could injure you or cause an accident. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Always keep both hands on the handlebars and both feet on the footboards of your ATV during operation.
Avoid wheelies and jumping. You may lose control of the ATV or overturn.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Attempting wheelies, jumps, and other stunts. WHAT CAN HAPPEN Increases the chance of an accident, including an overturn. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Never attempt stunts, such as wheelies or jumps. Dont try to show off.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Operating this ATV with improper modifications. WHAT CAN HAPPEN Improper installation of accessories or modification of this vehicle may cause changes in handling which in some situations could lead to an accident. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Never modify this ATV through improper installation or use of accessories. All parts and accessories added to this vehicle should be genuine Yamaha or equivalent components designed for use on this ATV and should be installed and used according to instructions. If you have questions, consult an authorized ATV dealer.
Exhaust system The exhaust system on the ATV is very hot during and following operation. To prevent burns, avoid touching the exhaust system. Park the ATV in a place where pedestrians or children are not likely to touch it.
Do not touch the hot exhaust system. Do not park the ATV in a place where others might be likely to touch it.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Hot exhaust system. WHAT CAN HAPPEN Dry grass or brush or other combustible material accumulated around the engine area could catch fire. Someone touching the exhaust system during or after operation could be burned. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Do not operate, idle, or park the ATV in dry grass or other dry ground cover. Keep the engine area free of dry grass, brush, or other combustible material.
BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU RIDE This ATV is designed for off-road use only. Riding on paved surfaces can cause loss of control.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Operating this ATV on paved surfaces. WHAT CAN HAPPEN ATVs are designed for off-road use only. Paved surfaces may seriously affect handling and control of the ATV, and may cause the vehicle to go out of control. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Always avoid paved surfaces, including sidewalks, driveways, parking lots and streets.
Do not ride on any public road, street, or highway. Riding on public roads can result in collisions with other vehicles.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Operating this ATV on public streets, roads or highways. WHAT CAN HAPPEN You can collide with another vehicle. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Never operate this ATV on any public street, road or highway, even a dirt or gravel one. In many states it is illegal to operate ATVs on public streets, roads and highways.
Know the terrain where you ride. Ride cautiously in unfamiliar areas. Stay alert for holes, rocks, or roots in the terrain, and other hidden hazards which may cause the ATV to upset.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Failure to use extra care when operating this ATV on unfamiliar terrain. WHAT CAN HAPPEN You can come upon hidden rocks, bumps, or holes, without enough time to react. Could result in the ATV overturning or going out of control. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Go slowly and be extra careful when operating on unfamiliar terrain. Always be alert to changing terrain conditions when operating the ATV.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Never operate the ATV on hills too steep for the ATV or for your abilities. Practice on smaller hills before attempting large hills. It is important when climbing a hill to make sure that your weight is transferred forward on the ATV. This can be accomplished by leaning forward and, on steeper inclines, standing on the footboards and leaning forward over the handlebars.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Operating on excessively steep hills. WHAT CAN HAPPEN The vehicle can overturn more easily on extremely steep hills than on level surfaces or small hills.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Climbing hills improperly. WHAT CAN HAPPEN Could cause loss of control or cause the ATV to overturn. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Always follow proper procedures for climbing hills as described in this Owners Manual. Always check the terrain carefully before you start up any hill. Never climb hills with excessively slippery or loose surfaces. Shift your weight forward. Never open the throttle suddenly. The ATV could flip over backwards. Never go over the top of any hill at high speed.
An obstacle, a sharp drop, or another vehicle or person could be on the other side of the hill.
If you are climbing a hill and you find that you have not properly judged your ability to make it to the top, you should turn the ATV around while you still have forward motion (provided you have the room to do so) and go down the hill.
POTENTIAL HAZARD Improperly crossing hills or turning on hills. WHAT CAN HAPPEN Could cause loss of control or cause the ATV to overturn. HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD Never attempt to turn the ATV around on any hill until you have mastered the turning technique as described in the Owners Manual on level ground. Be very careful when turning on any hill. Avoid crossing the side of a steep hill if possible.
U1D910.book Page 27 Thursday, May 27, 2004 11:08 AM
When crossing the side of a hill: Always follow proper procedures as described in the Owners Manual. Avoid hills with excessively slippery or loose surfaces. Shift your weight to the uphill side of the ATV.
U1D910.book Page 28 Thursday, May 27, 2004 11:08 AM
If your ATV has stalled or stopped and you believe you can continue up the hill, restart carefully to make sure you do not lift the front wheels which could cause you to lose control. If you are unable to continue up the hill, dismount the ATV on the uphill side. Physically turn the ATV around and then descend the hill. If you start to roll backwards, DO NOT apply either brake abruptly. If you are in 2WD, apply only the front brake. When this ATV is in 4WD or 4WD-LOCK, all wheels (front and rear) are interconnected by the drive train. This means that applying either the front brake or the rear brake will brake all wheels. When descending hills, using either brake lever or the brake pedal will brake the wheels on the downhill side. Avoid sudden application of either the front or rear brake because the wheels on the uphill side could come off the ground. The ATV could easily tip over backwards. Apply both
U1D910.book Page 41 Thursday, May 27, 2004 11:08 AM
If your ATV is traversing a sloping surface: Be sure to ride with your weight positioned towards the uphill side of the ATV to maintain proper balance. If the ATV starts to tip, steer down the hill (if there are no obstacles in your way) to regain balance. If you discover that the ATV is going to tip over, dismount on the uphill side. (See pages 7-32 7-33.) If your ATV encounters shallow water: Ride slowly and carefully through slow moving water, watching for obstacles. Be sure to let water drain from the ATV and CHECK YOUR BRAKES FOR PROPER OPERATION when you come out of the water. Do not continue to ride your ATV until you have regained adequate braking ability. (See pages 7-347-36.)
PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT

NOTE: The air filter element should be cleaned every 2040 hours. It should be cleaned and lubricated more often if the machine is operated in extremely dusty areas. Each time the air filter element maintenance is performed, check the air inlet to the filter case for obstructions. Check the air filter case rubber joint to the carburetor and manifold fittings for an airtight seal. Tighten all fittings securely to avoid the possibility of unfiltered air entering the engine.
Never operate the engine with the air filter element removed. This will allow unfiltered air to enter, causing rapid engine wear and possible engine damage. Additionally, operation without the air filter element will affect carburetor jetting with subsequent poor performance and possible engine overheating.
