Qwarning – Yamaha BLASTER YFS200N User Manual
TURNING YOUR ATV
To achieve maximum traction while riding off-
road, the two rear wheels are mounted solidly
on one axle and turn together at the same
speed. Therefore, unless the wheel on the
inside of the turn is allowed to slip or lose some
traction, the ATV will resist turning. A special
turning technique must be used to allow the ATV
to make turns quickly and easily. It is essential
that this skill be learned first at low speed.
As you approach a curve, slow down and begin
to turn the handlebars in the desired direction.
As you do so, put your weight on the footboard
to the outside of the turn (opposite your desired
direction) and lean your upper body into the
turn. Use the throttle to maintain an even speed
through the turn. This maneuver will let the
wheel on the inside of the turn slip slightly,
allowing the ATV to make the turn properly.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
The ATV could go out of control, causing
a collision or overturn.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Always follow proper procedures for turn-
ing as described in this Owner’s Manual.
Practice turning at low speeds before
attempting to turn at faster speeds. Do not
turn at speeds too fast for your skills or
