Braking levers

Consult your owner’s manual for correct braking procedures.

From one ATV to another, even within the same model, brake sensitivity can vary significantly. Each time you operate a different ATV, start slowly and practice braking. The pressure you normally use on another ATV may not work as well on this one.

  • With sluggish brakes, your normal pressure may not stop the ATV in time.
  • With sensitive brakes, your normal pressure may cause you to lose control of the ATV or even get thrown off.
