Very new to ATV's but I bought one 2 weeks ago and rode it for the first time this past weekend. Because of the regulations for riding on the trails that I am using, I needed to find a 5x Helmet before riding. I found one. Anyway, the first time I went to use the ATV, the hand brake was lifeless, it didn't work. I looked in the manual and it said to look in the clear hole right next to the brake and if it was clear then it needed brake fluid. From what I can tell it needs brake fluid. 1, where do you put the brake fluid and 2, why would this happen if it had never been ridden before? Was it because the hand brake was in a locked position? My other question is that although I was only riding for about 1 hour, I was getting a flashing warning on the odomter, WARNING - HOT ENGINE - CHECK ENGINE (something like that, the words weren't exactly the same) Only 1 hour, why was I getting this message and what would I check when it says to check engine? To give you an idea of the area I was riding in, there was a lot of water and alot of mud.
