Be a Responsible Owner As the vehicles owner, you are re- sponsible for the safe and proper op- eration of your scooter... Scooters are single-track vehicles... Their safe use and operation are de- pendent upon the use of proper riding techniques as well as the expertise of the operator... Every operator should know the following requirements be- fore riding this scooter... He or she should:

odorless, tasteless gas which may be present even if you do not see or smell any engine exhaust... Deadly levels of carbon monoxide can collect rapidly and you can quickly be over- come and unable to save yourself... Also, deadly levels of carbon mon- oxide can linger for hours or days in enclosed or poorly ventilated areas... If you experience any symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, leave the area immediately, get fresh air, and SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT...

Page 12

Genuine Yamaha Accessories Choosing accessories for your vehicle is an important decision... Genuine Yamaha accessories, which are avail- able only from a Yamaha dealer, have been designed, tested, and approved by Yamaha for use on your vehicle... Many companies with no connection to Yamaha manufacture parts and ac- cessories or offer other modifi cations for Yamaha vehicles... Yamaha is not in a position to test the products that these aftermarket companies pro- duce... Therefore, Yamaha can neither endorse nor recommend the use of accessories not sold by Yamaha or modifi cations not specifi cally recom- mended by Yamaha, even if sold and installed by a Yamaha dealer...

Page 13

to you or others... Installing aftermarket products or having other modifi cations performed to your vehicle that change any of the vehicles design or opera- tion characteristics can put you and others at greater risk of serious injury or death... You are responsible for inju- ries related to changes in the vehicle... Keep the following guidelines in mind, as wel l as those provided under Loading when mounting accesso- ries...

Your Yamaha eng ine has been designed to use regular unleaded gasoline with a pump octane number [(R+M)/2] of 86 or higher, or a re- search octane number of 91 or higher... If knocking (or pinging) occurs, use a gasoline of a different brand or premi- um unleaded fuel... Use of unleaded fuel will extend spark plug life and reduce maintenance costs...

Since the rear storage compart- ment accumulates heat when exposed to the sun, do not store anything susceptible to heat inside it...

Page 29

Since the rear storage com- partment may get wet while the scooter is being washed, wrap any articles stored in the rear compartment in a plastic bag...

Page 30

WARNING Failure to inspect or maintain the vehicle properly increases the possibility of an accident or equipment dam- age... Do not operate the vehicle if you fi nd any problem... If a problem cannot be corrected by the procedures pro- vided in this manual, have the vehicle inspected by a Yamaha dealer...

Engine break-in There is never a more important pe- riod in the life of your engine than the period between 0 and 1000 km (600 mi)... For this reason, you should read the following material carefully... Since the engine is brand new, do not put an excessive load on it for the fi rst 1000 km (600 mi)... The various parts in the engine wear and polish them- selves to the correct operating clear- ances... During this period, prolonged full-throttle 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 effi cient condition possible... Safety is an obligation of the vehicle owner/operator... The most important 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, depending on the weather, terrain, geographical location, and individual use, the maintenance intervals may need to be shortened...

pressed air to avoid damaging it... The air fi lter element needs to be replaced more frequently when riding in unusually wet or dusty areas...

Page 43

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 pe- riodic maintenance and lubrication chart... In addition, the condition of the spark plug can reveal the condition of the engine...

Page 44

If a torque wrench is not available when installing a spark plug, a good estimate of the correct torque is 1/4 - 1/2 turn past fi nger tight... However, the spark plug should be tightened to the specifi ed torque as soon as possible...

Page 45

3... Remove the engine oil fi ller cap and the engine oil drain bolts A and B to drain the oil from the crankcase... NOTICE: When re- moving the engine oil drain bolt B, the O-ring, compression spring, and oil strainer will fall out... Take care not to lose these parts... [ECAT1021]

Page 46

9... Start the engine, and then let it idle for several minutes while checking it for oil leakage... If oil is leaking, immediately turn the en- gine off and check for the cause...

Page 47

Final transmission oil The fi nal transmission case must be checked for oil leakage before each ride... If any leakage is found, have a Yamaha dealer check and repair the scooter... In addition, the fi nal transmis- sion oil must be changed as follows at the intervals specifi ed in the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart...

Page 48

4... Add coolant or distilled water to raise the coolant to the maximum level mark, and install the cool- ant reservoir cap and the panel... 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

Page 49

water has been used instead of coolant, replace it with coolant as soon as possible, otherwise the cooling system will not be protected against frost and cor- rosion... If water has been added to the coolant, have a Yamaha dealer check the antifreeze content of the coolant as soon as possible, otherwise the ef- fectiveness of the coolant will be reduced... [ECA10472]

Carburetor The carburetor is an important part of the engine and its emission control system, which requires very sophis- ticated adjustment... Therefore, car- buretor adjustments should be left to Yamaha dealer, who has the neces- sary professional knowledge and ex- perience...

Page 51

Valve clearance The valve clearance changes with use, resulting in improper air-fuel mix- ture and/or engine noise... To prevent this from occurring, the valve clear- ance must be adjusted by a Yamaha dealer at the intervals specifi ed in the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart...

Page 54

The front and rear brake shoes must be checked for wear at the intervals specifi ed in the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart... Each brake is provided with a wear indicator, which allows you to check the brake shoe wear without having to disassemble the brake... To check the brake shoe wear, check the position of the wear indicator while applying the brake... If a brake shoe has worn to the point that the wear indicator reaches the wear limit line, have a Yamaha dealer re- place the brake shoes as a set...

Page 55

Checking and lubricating the throttle grip and cable The operation of the throttle grip should be checked before each ride... In addition, the cable should be lubri- cated by a Yamaha dealer at the inter- vals specifi ed in the periodic mainte- nance chart... The throttle cable is equipped with a rubber boot... Make sure that the boot is securely installed... Even though the boot is installed correctly, it does not completely protect the cable from water entry... Therefore, use care not to pour water directly onto the boot or cable when washing the vehicle... If the cable or boot becomes dirty, wipe clean with a moist cloth...

Page 56

Checking the steering Worn or loose steering bearings may cause danger... Therefore, the opera- tion of the steering must be checked as follows at the intervals specifi ed in the periodic maintenance and lubrica- tion chart...

Page 57

Troubleshooting Although Yamaha scooters 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 scooter require any repair, take it to a Yamaha dealer, whose skilled technicians have the necessary tools, experience, and know-how to service the scooter 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...

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...

c leaners or hard sponges as they will cause dulling or scratching... Some cleaning compounds for plastic may leave scratches on the wind- shield... Test the product on a small hidden part of the wind- shield to make sure that it does not leave any marks... If the windshield is scratched, use a quality plastic polishing com- pound after washing...
