Installation

Note: If you are transporting your ATV you must follow all of the steps below. If covering for storage only you can ignore step 5 and, if storing indoors, step 6.

1. Cover any sharp points on your ATV with a cloth or sponge.

2. Place your ATV on the trailer or vehicle (do not tie your ATV

down to the trailer).

3. Locate the yellow “FRONT” label along the bottom hem of your cover.

4. With the “FRONT” label at the front of your ATV pull your cover over your ATV from front to back.

5. If you are trailering your vehicle, there are two slots in the front of your cover for tie-down straps. Run your tie-downs (not included) from the ATV, through two front holes in the cover and then down to your trailer or vehicle. Run your tie-downs (not included) from your ATV, throughthe opening at the back of the cover and then down to your trailer(Fig 1).

6. There are three compression straps that tighten your cover to the sides and front and back of your ATV. These must be used when transporting your ATV. Clip an end of a compression strap into one of the buckles on the side of the cover (Fig 2). Thread theunattached end of the strap through the slot on the cover just below the buckle. Let the strap end fall into the inside of your cover. Run the strap under your ATV and up through the inside of the corresponding slot on the opposite side of your cover. Clip the strap end into the buckle above the slot. Repeat this procedure with the second side compression strap. Run the third compression strap from front to back, fitting the strap through the separations in the cover.

7. Tension both compression straps to fit them securely to your ATV. If you are transporting your ATV tuck any loose ends of the sides straps into the cover slots.

CLEANING:  

Clean your cover with a soft brush and lukewarm water or machine wash in COLD water. DO NO USE SOAP as it may remove the protective coatings added by the factory. Line dry or machine dry on air or delicate.

 

Storage:

Your cover comes with a handy storage bag. To avoid mildew be sure your cover is dry before you store it in the storage bag.


Important:

When installing your cover for the first time, make sure that your vehicle is clean.

Caution. Please read prior to use of this cover.

  • Never cover a wet vehicle.

  • Not liable for repainted surfaces or lacquer paint. Do not use any cover on freshly painted vehicle for at least 6 month. The paint has to cure before any cover can be applied. It is the best to check with your painter or body shop for recommended "cure" time. Use of any cover on a repainted vehicle may cause damage that is not due to the cover, but due to the new paint.

  • Do not cover the tail pipe or exhaust

  • A hot exhaust and muffler can burn you and melt your cover

  • Be sure the hood and engine are cool before you put on your cover

  • This cover is water repellent but it will not prevent water from reaching the surface of your vehicle.

  • Max trailering speed for trailerable covers 50 mph - 60 mph short distance 100 miles max).  Any loose material during trailering is going to damage your cover. Make sure to secure it, you might want to use some additional straps or bungee cords (if needed).

  • High Winds: If you are located in a high wind area be sure to tie down your cover using the grommets provided. Do not rely solely on the elasticized bottom of your cover to provide maximum protection from strong winds.

  • Freezing Weather: In unusual circumstances, a layer of ice may form between your vehicle and the cover. This layer of ice must be thawed before removing the cover. You may expedite the thawing process by pouring warm water over the cover and gently lifting the cover as the ice begins to melt. If any resistance occurs,

  • repeat process.

  • Avoid trapping moisture under the cover. I your vehicle is outside for long periods or under snow, trapped moisture can sometimes cause paint to become cloudy. We recommend removing your cover every 30 days. Let your vehicle dry completely before reinstalling the cover.

  • Be sure to pad all stress points so that the cover will not become ripped or torn during trailering.

  • Padding and protecting wear points and stress areas is essential to the performance of your cover, especially while trailering(if the cover is trailerable).

  • Prior to installation, we suggest the following protection methods: 1) apply duct tape to the inside of the cover where it might come into contact with sharp edges, or 2) tape pieces of foam, sponges, thick cloth or a towel over any sharp edges or stress points.

  • Failure to properly tie down the cover and pad stress points could result in considerable damage to your cover and possible damage to vehicle boat.

  • Your cover is not completely waterproof, it is water repellent. Cover any items on your storage racks that can be damaged by water in plastic
