Your off roader will provide you with many years of service and pleasure, providing you take responsibility for your own safety and understand the challenges you may
meet while driving.
There is much that you can do to protect yourself while operating your off roader . You’ll find many helpful recommendations throughout this manual. The following are a few that we consider most important.
Follow the Age Recommendation Experienced adult supervision should be present for all inexperienced operators.
Always Wear a Helmet It’s a proven fact: wearing helmets significantly reduces the number and severity of head injuries. Always wear an approved motorcycle helmet. We also recommend that you wear eye protection, sturdy boots, gloves, and other protective gear.
Drive Off-Road Only Your off roader is designed and manufactured for off-road use only. Its tires are not made for pavement, and the kart does not have features required for use on public roads. If you need to cross a paved or public road, shut the machines power off, get off and walk your off roader across.
Take Time to Learn & Practice Even if you have driven other karts, take time to become familiar with how this kart works and handles. Practice in a safe area until you build your skills and get accustomed to this kart’s size and weight.
Because many accidents involve inexperienced or untrained drivers, we urge all drivers to take a training course approved by the Go-Kart Safety Institute. Check with your dealer for more information on training courses.
Be Alert for Off-Road Hazards The terrain can present a variety of challenges when you drive off-road. Continually
“read” the terrain for unexpected turns, drop-offs, rocks, ruts, and other hazards. Always keep your speed low enough to allow time to see and react to hazards.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Drive within Your Limits Pushing limits is another major cause of kart accidents. Never drive beyond your
personal abilities or faster than conditions warrant. Remember that alcohol, drugs, fatigue,and inattention can significantly reduce your ability to make good judgments and drive safely.
Alcohol, Drugs, and Driving Alcohol, drugs and driving don’t mix. Even one drink can reduce your ability to respond to changing conditions, and your reaction time gets worse with every additional drink. So
don’t drink and drive, and don’t let your friends drink and drive either. Do not operate this kart if you are taking any prescriptions.
Do Not Operate this off roader at Night Lower visibility at night can greatly reduce a driver’s judgment. Driving at night is dangerous and will increase the possibility of an accident.
Never Run Your Kart Indoors The exhaust from the engine contains carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas which is tasteless & odorless. Carbon monoxide kills.
Keep Away from Moving Parts of the Kart Never place your hands or any other body part near any moving part of the kart. Failure to adhere to this warning may cause physical harm to your body.
Skidding or Sliding The terrain’s surface can be a major factor affecting turns. Skidding in a turn is more likely to occur on slippery surfaces such as snow, ice, mud, and loose gravel. If you skid on ice, you may lose all directional control. To avoid skidding on slippery terrain, keep your speed low and drive carefully.
