OHV SAFETY

If you are operating an off-highway vehicle, remember to stop often and check your hotspots.

An off-highway vehicle exhaust can reach temperatures of over 200 Celsius, causing debris caught near the exhaust to become superheated. This debris can potentially start a wildfire when it falls to the ground.

Before you ride, clean any debris that has built up near the exhaust and muffler, under the seat, in wheel wells and around the engine
