CONNECTION NOTES 9 Avoid connecting the generator to commercial

power outlet.

9 Avoid connecting the generator in parallel with any other generator.

1 Correct 2 Incorrect

AE00091

CONNECTION

Before the generator can be connected to a build- ings electrical system, a licensed electrician must install an isolation (transfer) switch in the build- ings main fuse box. The switch is the connection point for generator power and allows selection of generator or main line power to the building. This will prevent the generator from charging the main power line (backfeeding) when the main power supply has failed or has been turned off for line repair. Backfeeding can electrocute or injure line maintenance personnel. Also, generator and build- ing electrical system damage can occur when nor- mal operating power returns if unit is used without an isolation switch.

WARNING

AE00086

EXTENSION CORD NOTES 9 Extension cords should be protected by a tough

flexible rubber sheath (IEC 245) or the equivalent to withstand mechanical stresses.

9 Be sure to connect the red battery charger lead to the positive (+) battery terminal, and connect the black lead to the negative () bat- tery terminal. Do not reverse these positions.

9 Connect the battery charger leads to the bat- tery terminals securely so that they are not disconnected due to engine vibration or other disturbances.

9 Charge the battery in the correct procedure by following instructions in the owners manual for the battery.

9 The DC protector turns off automatically if cur- rent above the rated flows during battery charging. To restart charging the battery, turn the DC protector on by pressing its button to RESET. If the DC protector turns off again, stop charging the battery immediately and consult a Yamaha dealer.

TIP 9 Follow instructions in the owners manual for the

battery to determine the end of battery charging. 9 Measure the specific gravity of electrolyte to deter-

mine if the battery is fully charged. At full charge, the electrolyte specific gravity is between 1.26 and 1.28.

9 It is advisable to check the specific gravity of the electrolyte at least once every hour to prevent overcharging the battery.

9 Electrolyte is poisonous and dangerous since it contains sulfuric acid, which causes severe burns. Avoid any contact with skin, eyes or clothing and always shield your eyes when working near batteries. In case of contact, administer the following FIRST AID. 9 EXTERNAL: Flush with plenty of water. 9 INTERNAL: Drink large quantities of water or

milk and immediately call a physician. 9 EYES: Flush with water for 15 minutes and

seek prompt medical attention. 9 Batteries produce explosive hydrogen gas.

Therefore, keep sparks, flames, cigarettes, etc., away from the battery and provide suffi- cient ventilation when charging it in an enclosed space.

9 KEEP THIS AND ALL BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Operating range of DC power supply (exclusively for charging 12V battery) This power source is designed to charge batteries up to 40Ah that are half-discharged. Do not charge batter- ies of a higher capacity than 40Ah. 12V battery The time required for recharging a battery varies depending on the discharge level of the battery. When the specific gravity of the battery reaches 1.26 to 1.28, charging is complete. When charging, check the bat- terys specific gravity once an hour. The average time for charging a half-discharged 40Ah battery is approximately 5 hours. Be sure to check the battery fluid level before charging.

9 Do not connect any load to the battery or use the engine starter motor while charging. This causes high current to flow through the generator which will burn out the coil.

9 Do not connect a VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) battery. To charge a VRLA battery, a spe- cial (constant-voltage) battery charger is required.

The California Air Resources Board and Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. are pleased to explain the emission control system warranty on your 2008 and later Small Off Road Engine (SORE). In California, new SORE engines must be designed, built and equipped to meet the States stringent anti-smog stan- dards. Yamaha must warrant the emission control system on your SORE engine for the periods of time listed below provided there has been no abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of your SORE engine.

Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor or fuel-injection system, the igni- tion system, and catalytic converter. Also included may be hoses, belts, connectors and other emission- related assemblies.

Where a warrantable condition exists, Yamaha will repair your SORE engine at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and labor.

MANUFACTURERS WARRANTY COVERAGE

The 2008 and later SORE engines are warranted for two years. If any emissions-related part on your engine is defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by Yamaha.

OWNERS WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES

9 As the SORE engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your owners manual. Yamaha recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your SORE engine, but Yamaha cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance.

9 As the SORE engine owner, you should however be aware that Yamaha may deny you warranty cov- erage if your SORE engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unap- proved modifications.

9 You are responsible for presenting your SORE engine to a Yamaha dealer as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable time, not to exceed 30 days.

If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact the Yamaha Customer Relations Department at 1-800-962-7926.

Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser thereafter that each new SORE engine certified for sale and registered in California are:

1. Designed, built, and equipped so as to conform, at the time of sale, with all applicable regulations adopted by the California Air Resources Board, and

2. All warranted parts are free from defects in material and workmanship for the warranty period of the SORE engine or the period prior to the first scheduled replacement point of the warranted part as required by the maintenance schedule, if applicable, whichever is less. A defect exists when a defi- ciency in material or workmanship is such that an emission-related warranted part does not function as designed.

The warranty period begins on the date that the SORE engine is delivered to an ultimate purchaser or on the date it is first placed in service.

The warranty on emissions-related parts will be interpreted as follows: (1) Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the written

7CG-28199-14 11.3.21 14:56 Page 43

44

instructions required by subsection (d) must be warranted for the warranty period defined in Subsection (b)(2). If any such part fails during the period of warranty coverage, it must be repaired or replaced by the manufacturer according to Subsection (4) below. Any such part repaired or replaced under the warranty must be warranted for the remaining warranty period.

(2) Any warranted part that is scheduled only for regular inspection in the written instructions required by subsection (d) must be warranted for the warranty period defined in Subsection (b)(2). A statement in such written instructions to the effect of repair or replace as necessary will not reduce the period of warranty coverage. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty must be warranted for the remaining warranty period.

(3) Any warranted part that is scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the written instruc- tions required by subsection (d) must be warranted for the period of time prior to the first scheduled replacement point for that part. If the part fails prior to the first scheduled replacement, the part must be repaired or replaced by the engine manufacturer according to Subsection (4) below. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty must be warranted for the remainder of the period prior to the first scheduled replacement point for the part.

(4) Repair or replacement of any warranted part under the warranty must be performed at no charge to the owner at a warranty station.

(5) Notwithstanding the provisions of Subsection (4) above, warranty services or repairs must be provid- ed at all manufacturer distribution centers that are franchised to service the subject engines.

(6) The owner must not be charged for diagnostic labor that leads to the determination that a warranted part is in fact defective, provided that such diagnostic work is performed at a warranty station.

(7) The manufacturer is liable for damages to other engine components proximately caused by a failure under warranty of any warranted part.

(8) Throughout the emissions warranty period defined in Subsection (b)(2), the manufacturer must main- tain a supply of warranted parts sufficient to meet the expected demand for such parts.

(9) Any replacement part may be used in the performance of any warranty maintenance or repairs and must be provided without charge to the owner. Such use will not reduce the warranty obligations of the manufacturer.

(10)Add-on or modified parts that are not exempted by the Air Resources Board may not be used. The use of any non-exempted add-on or modified parts will be grounds for disallowing a warranty claim. The manufacturer will not be liable to warrant failures of warranted parts caused by the use of a non- exempted add-on or modified part.

(11)The manufacturer issuing the warranty shall provide any documents that describe that manufacturers warranty procedures or policies within five working days of request by the Air Resources Board.

1. Fuel Metering System Carburetor and internal parts (or fuel injection system) Air/fuel ratio feedback and control system Cold start enrichment system

DURING THE PERIOD OF THIS WARRANTY

Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. will repair or replace any warranted part deemed defective by Yamaha during the scope of the warranty without charge to the owner, including parts, labor, and diagnosis. This work must be done at an authorized Yamaha dealer. Give notice to an authorized Yamaha dealer of any apparent defects(s) within a reasonable period of time after discovery. The SORE engine must be made available for inspection by an authorized Yamaha dealer.

OWNERS RESPONSIBILITY:

The owner of the SORE engine is responsible for the performance of required maintenance (see your Owners Manual). Receipts and maintenance records covering the performance of regular maintenance should be retained in the event questions arise concerning maintenance. The receipts should be trans- ferred to each subsequent owner of this SORE engine.

The emission control systems of your Yamaha SORE engine were designed, built, tested, and certified as being in conformity with California emission control regulations using genuine Yamaha parts. Accordingly, it is recommended that any replacement part(s) used for maintenance, replacement, or repair of emission control systems be Yamaha parts. The owner may elect to have maintenance, replacement, or repair of the emission control devices and systems performed by any repair establishment or individual, and may elect to use parts other than Yamaha parts for such maintenance, replacement, or repair without invalidat- ing this warranty. However, the cost of such service or parts will not be covered under the warranty.

EXCLUSIONS: No warranty coverage will be allowed if the part(s) failure was caused by owner/operator abuse, neglect, tampering, improper adjustment unless performed by a dealer during warranty repair work, modification, misuse, alteration, or improper maintenance (see your Owners Manual).

Use of parts which are not qualitatively equivalent to genuine Yamaha parts, improper service, or lack of required maintenance which causes failure of a warranted part may constitute abuse and/or improper ser- vice, thereby invalidating warranty liability hereunder.
