Engine break-in There is never a more important period in the life of your engine than the period between 0 and 1600 km (1000 mi)... For this reason, you should read the fol- lowing material carefully... Since the engine is brand new, do not put an excessive load on it for the first 1600 km (1000 mi)... The various parts in the engine wear and polish themselves to the correct operating clearances... During this period, prolonged full-throt- tle operation or any condition that might result in engine overheating must be avoided...

Periodic inspection, adjustment, and lubrication will keep your vehicle in the safest and most efficient condition possible... Safety is an obligation of the vehicle owner/operator... The most im- portant points of vehicle inspection, adjustment, and lubrication are ex- plained on the following pages... The intervals given in the periodic maintenance charts should be simply considered as a general guide under normal riding conditions... However, de- pending on the weather, terrain, geo- graphical location, and individual use, the maintenance intervals may need to be shortened...

Page 67

Emission controls not only function to ensure cleaner air, but are also vital to proper engine operation and maximum performance... In the following periodic maintenance charts, the services relat- ed to emissions control are grouped separately... These services require specialized data, knowledge, and equipment... Maintenance, replace- ment, or repair of the emission control devices and systems may be per- formed by any repair establishment or individual that is certified (if applicable)... Yamaha dealers are trained and equipped to perform these particular services...

Page 73

Checking the spark plug The spark plug is an important engine component, which should be checked periodically, preferably by a Yamaha dealer... Since heat and deposits will cause any spark plug to slowly erode, it should be removed and checked in accordance with the periodic mainte- nance and lubrication chart... In addi- tion, the condition of the spark plug can reveal the condition of the engine... The porcelain insulator around the center electrode of the spark plug should be a medium-to-light tan (the ideal color when the vehicle is ridden normally)... If the spark plug shows a distinctly different color, the engine could be operating improperly... Do not attempt to diagnose such problems yourself... Instead, have a Yamaha deal- er check the vehicle... If the spark plug shows signs of elec- trode erosion and excessive carbon or other deposits, it should be replaced...

Page 74

Troubleshooting Although Yamaha vehicles receive a thorough inspection before shipment from the factory, trouble may occur during operation... Any problem in the fuel, compression, or ignition systems, for example, can cause poor starting and loss of power... The following troubleshooting charts represent quick and easy procedures for checking these vital systems your- self... However, should your vehicle re- quire any repair, take it to a Yamaha dealer, whose skilled technicians have the necessary tools, experience, and know-how to service the vehicle prop- erly... Use only genuine Yamaha replace- ment parts... Imitation parts may look like Yamaha parts, but they are often inferior, have a shorter service life and can lead to expensive repair bills...

Page 101

Check the battery lead connections, and have a Yamaha dealer charge the battery if necessary...

Release the knob after the smart key system indicator light flashes twice... The second digit has been set as 2... Repeat the above procedure until all digits of the identification num- ber have been set... The smart key system indicator light will flash for 10 seconds if the correct identifi- cation number was entered...

Page 105

Care While the open design of a scooter re- veals the attractiveness of the technol- ogy, it also makes it more vulnerable... Rust and corrosion can develop even if high-quality components are used... A rusty exhaust pipe may go unnoticed on a car, however, it detracts from the overall appearance of a scooter... Fre- quent and proper care does not only comply with the terms of the warranty, but it will also keep your scooter look- ing good, extend its life and optimize its performance...

Page 106

After normal use Remove dirt with warm water, a mild detergent, and a soft, clean sponge, and then rinse thoroughly with clean water... Use a toothbrush or bottlebrush for hard-to-reach areas... Stubborn dirt and insects will come off more easily if the area is covered with a wet cloth for a few minutes before cleaning...

Page 107

Cleaning the windshield Avoid using any alkaline or strong acid cleaner, gasoline, brake fluid, or any other solvent... Clean the windshield with a cloth or sponge dampened with a neutral detergent, and after cleaning, thoroughly wash it off with water... For additional cleaning, use Yamaha Wind- shield Cleaner or other quality cleaner... Some cleaning compounds for plastics may leave scratches on surfaces of the windshield... Before using them, make a test by polishing an area which does not affect your visibility...
