- Safety. The safety of our Customers is our utmost concern and is of prime importance. The Products are inherently dangerous and it is imperative that you fully abide by all the Terms, rules, regulations and practices relating to safety issues, including without limitation, all of the following:
- Operation of Products:
- Always wear a DOT-approved full-face helmet when riding minibikes, go-karts, drift trikes, or any off-road vehicle.
- Always buckle the chin strap when using a helmet.
- Always wear gloves that will protect the rider and ensure that your gloves also have extra protection for the knuckles and palms of your hand in case your hands come into contact with the ground when riding/driving off-road vehicles.
- Always wear long sleeved shirts and full-length pants in order to prevent scrapes, abrasions or bruises if you happen to fall. Full leather attire will further protect the rider if he or she happens to fall while operating.
- Do not ride in conditions that may impair your visibility or reaction time. Nighttime riding, riding in fog, snow or rain can greatly increase chances of injury.
- If minors are riding/driving off-road vehicles, there must be adult supervision at all times.
- All riders must obey local and state laws as well as have complete knowledge of all safety precautions and measures.
- Do not remove your hands or feet from the handlebars or footrests of your vehicle.
- Do not operate your vehicle at excessive speeds.

- For information about where to safely ride, be sure to check the following sources:
- Installation of Products:
- All Products should be installed only by a certified mechanic. Once installed and prior to every ride, vehicles and engines should be inspected for safety and mechanical integrity.

- ALP sells products that may increase the speed of any off-road vehicle. Any modifications made to any vehicle must be in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines for intended uses, including without limitation, maximum speed.
- Removing or bypassing the governor from engines increases the user’s risk of injury. ALP does not condone or encourage the removal or bypassing of governors in small engines unless the proper parts are installed by a certified mechanic in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines of said parts.
- Products sold may require substantial mechanical skills to set up, adjust, maintain, repair, and upgrade. We strongly recommend that a certified mechanic perform all setup and mechanical operations to keep your Product operating properly and safely. Our Products come with absolutely no warranty.
- Maintenance of Products:
- Always maintain your vehicle in safe condition.
- Always do a safety check before each ride. This includes tire pressure and hoses, tightening of all screws and bolts, chain tension, and all adjustments.
- Keep the vehicle well maintained. Oil the chain every four hours of riding and adjust the tension of all cables for throttle and brakes after every riding session.
- Condition of Rider:
