oid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning engine exhaust contains carbon noxide, a deadly gas... Breathing car- n monoxide can cause headaches, ziness, drowsiness, nausea, confu- n, and eventually death... rbon Monoxide is a colorless, odor- s, tasteless gas which may be pres- t even if you do not see or smell any gine exhaust... Deadly levels of car- n monoxide can collect rapidly and u can quickly be overcome and un- le to save yourself... Also, deadly lev- of carbon monoxide can linger for urs or days in enclosed or poorly ntilated areas... If you experience any

Page 12

ENT... Do not run engine indoors... Even if you try to ventilate engine exhaust with fans or open windows and doors, carbon monoxide can rap- idly reach dangerous levels... Do not run engine in poorly venti- lated or partially enclosed areas such as barns, garages, or car- ports... Do not run engine outdoors where engine exhaust can be drawn into a building through openings such as windows and doors...

to solid parts of the scooter, such as the frame or upper front fork tri- ple clamp (and not, for example, to rubber-mounted handlebars or turn signals, or parts that could break)... Choose the location for the straps carefully so the straps will not rub against painted surfaces during transport... The suspension should be com- pressed somewhat by the tie-downs, if possible, so that the scooter will not bounce excessive- ly during transport...

Page 26

2... Do not overfill the fuel tank... When refueling, be sure to insert the pump nozzle into the fuel tank filler hole... Stop filling when the fuel reaches the bottom of the filler tube... Because fuel expands when it heats up, heat from the engine or the sun can cause fuel to spill out of the fuel tank...

Page 27

Do not park the vehicle near possible fire hazards such as grass or other materials that easily burn... Park the vehicle in a place where pedestrians or children are not likely to touch the hot exhaust system... Make sure that the exhaust sys- tem has cooled down before do- ing any maintenance work... Do not allow the engine to idle more than a few minutes... Long idling can cause a build-up of heat...

Since the storage compartment accumulates heat when ex- posed to the sun and/or the en- gine heat, do not store anything susceptible to heat, consum- ables or flammable items inside it... To avoid humidity from spread- ing through the storage com- partment, wrap wet articles in a plastic bag before storing them in the compartment... Since the storage compartment may get wet while the vehicle is being washed, wrap any articles stored in the compartment in a plastic bag... Do not keep anything valuable or breakable in the storage com- partment...

Avoid braking hard or suddenly (especially when leaning over to one side), otherwise the scooter may skid or overturn... Railroad crossings, streetcar rails, iron plates on road con- struction sites, and manhole covers become extremely slip- pery when wet... Therefore, slow down when approaching such areas and cross them with cau- tion... Keep in mind that braking on a wet road is much more difficult... Ride slowly down a hill, as brak- ing downhill can be very diffi- cult...

Checking the spark plug The spark plug is an important engine component, which is easy to check... Since heat and deposits will cause any spark plug to slowly erode, the spark plug should be removed and checked in accordance with the periodic mainte- nance and lubrication chart... In addition, the condition of the spark plug can re- veal the condition of the engine...

Page 50

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 speci- fied torque as soon as possible...

NOTICE: If coolant is not avail- able, use distilled water or soft tap water instead... Do not use hard water or salt water since it is harmful to the engine... If water has been used instead of cool- ant, replace it with coolant as soon as possible, otherwise the cooling system will not be pro- tected against frost and corro- sion... If water has been added to the coolant, have a Yamaha dealer check the antifreeze con-

Avoid using strong acidic wheel cleaners, especially on spoked wheels... If such products are used on hard-to-remove dirt, do not leave the cleaner on the af- fected area any longer than in- structed... Also, thoroughly rinse the area off with water, immedi- ately dry it, and then apply a cor- rosion protection spray... Improper cleaning can damage plastic parts (such as cowlings, panels, windshields, headlight lenses, meter lenses, etc... ) and the mufflers... Use only a soft, clean cloth or sponge with wa- ter to clean plastic... However, if the plastic parts cannot be thor- oughly cleaned with water, di- luted mild detergent with water may be used... Be sure to rinse off any detergent residue using

plenty of water, as it is harmful to plastic parts... Do not use any harsh chemical products on plastic parts... Be sure to avoid using cloths or sponges which have been in contact with strong or abrasive cleaning products, solvent or thinner, fuel (gasoline), rust re- movers or inhibitors, brake flu- id, antifreeze or electrolyte... Do not use high-pressure wash- ers or steam-jet cleaners since they cause water seepage and deterioration in the following ar- eas: seals (of wheel and swing- arm bearings, fork and brakes), electric components (couplers, connectors, instruments, switches and lights), breather hoses and vents... For scooters equipped with a windshield: Do not use strong cleaners or hard sponges as they will cause dulling or scratching...
