Troubleshooting Although Yamaha scooters receive a thorough inspection before shipment from the factory, trouble may occur dur- ing 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 re- quire 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 inferi- or, have a shorter service life and can lead to expensive repair bills...

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

Page 67

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...
