Fuel is highly flammable and poisonous 9 Always turn off the engine when refuelling.

9 Never refuel while smoking or in the vicinity of an open flame.

9 Take care not to spill any fuel on the engine or muf- fler when refueling.

9 Do not leave the generator inside the vehicle or in the trunk.

9 If you swallow any fuel, inhale fuel vapor, or allow any to get in your eye(s), see your doctor immedi- ately. If any fuel spills on your skin or clothing, immediately wash with soap and water and change your clothes.

9 When operating or transporting the generator, be sure it is kept upright. If it tilts, fuel may leak from the carburetor or fuel tank.

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 Extension cords should be protected by a tough flexible rubber sheath (IEC 245) or the equivalent to withstand mechanical stresses.

DANGER Using a generator indoors CAN KILL YOU IN MINUTES.

Generator exhaust contains carbon monoxide. This is a poison you cannot see or smell.

NEVER use inside a home or garage, EVEN IF doors and windows are open.

Only use OUTSIDE and far away from windows, door, and vents.

PREPARATION AE00856

Fuel

9 Fuel is highly flammable and poisonous. Check SAFETY INFORMATION (See page 2) careful- ly before filling.

9 Do not overfill the fuel tank, otherwise it may overflow when the fuel warms up and expands.

9 After fill the fuel, make sure the fuel tank cap is tightened securely.

9 Immediately wipe off spilled fuel with a clean, dry, soft cloth, since fuel may deteriorate paint- ed surfaces or plastic parts.

9 Use only unleaded gasoline. The use of leaded gasoline will cause severe damage to internal engine parts.

NOTICE

WARNING

Remove the fuel tank cap and fill the fuel into the tank up to the bottom edge of the fuel filter. The fuel level in the fuel tank can be checked through the fuel level gauge.

PRE-OPERATION CHECK

If any item in the Pre-operation check is not work- ing properly, have it inspected and repaired before operating the generator.

The condition of a generator is the owners responsibil- ity. Vital components can start to deteriorate quickly and unexpectedly, even if the generator unused.

TIP Pre-operation checks should be made each time the generator is used.

Pre-operation check Fuel (See page 10) 9 Check fuel level in fuel tank. 9 Refuel if necessary.

Fuel line 9 Check fuel hose for crack or damage. 9 Replace if necessary.

Engine oil (See page 11) 9 Check oil level in engine. 9 If necessary, add recommended oil to specified

level. 9 Check generator for oil leakage.

Application range When using the generator, make sure the total load is within rated output of a generator. Otherwise, generator damage may occur.

TIP 9 means below. 9 Application wattage indicates when each device is used by itself.

9 Do not overload. The total load of all electrical appliances must not exceed the supply range of the generator. Overloading will damage the generator.

9 Some types of precision equipment such as electronic controllers, PCs, elec- tronic computers, microcomputer-based equipment and battery chargers are sensitive to voltage fluctuations and may require more stable voltage supply than the voltage supplied from the portable generator. When using such equipment, consult with a Yamaha dealer.

9 When supplying precision equipment, electronic controllers, PCs, electronic computers, microcomputer-based equipment or battery chargers, keep the generator a sufficient distance away to prevent electrical interference from the engine. Also ensure that electrical noise from the engine does not interfere with any other electrical devices located near the generator.

9 If the generator is to supply medical equipment, advice should first be obtained from the manufacturer, a medical professional or hospital.

9 Some electrical appliances or general-purpose electric motors have high start- ing currents, and cannot therefore be used, even if they lie within the supply ranges given in the above table. Consult the equipment manufacturer for fur- ther advice.

TIP The spark plug gap should be measured with a wire thickness gauge and, if necessary, adjusted to specifi- cation.

4. Install the spark plug.

TIP If a torque wrench is not available when installing a spark plug, a good estimate of the correct torque is 1/41/2 turn past finger tight. However, the spark plug should be tightened to the specified torque as soon as possible.

5. Install the spark plug cap.

1. Remove the spark plug cap and the spark plug.

3. Clean exterior of the generator and apply a rust inhibitor.

4. Store the generator in a dry, well-ventilated place, with the cover placed over it.

5. The generator must remain in a vertical position when stored, carried or operated.

(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.

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.

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.

9 Y.E.S. is administered by the same Yamaha people that handle your warranty - and it shows in the comprehensive coverage benefits. There are no hour limitations and Y.E.S. covers manufacturing defects just like your warranty. See a sample contract at your Yamaha dealer and see how comfort- ing uninterrupted factory backed protection can be.

9 There are no out-of-pocket expenses for covered repairs. Yamaha will never ask you to pay a deductible.

9 Nationwide coverage. Y.E.S. coverage is honored at any authorized Yamaha Outdoor Power Equipment Service dealer.

9 Y.E.S. coverage is transferable to a new owner if you sell or trade-in. That can make you Yamaha much more valuable.

This excellent Y.E.S. plan coverage is only available to Yamaha owners like you, and only while your Yamaha is still within the Yamaha Limited Warranty period. So visit your authorized Yamaha dealer to get all the facts. He can show you how easy it is to protect your investment with Yamaha Extended Service.

Special note: If visiting your dealer isnt convenient, contact Yamaha with your Primary ID number (your frame number). Well be happy to help you get the Y.E.S. coverage you need.
