D: SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
RIDING SCOOTERS IS FUN ONLY IF YOU PUT SAFETY AS YOUR TOP PRIORITY.
! WARNING: Before you start operating your scooter:
• Be sure you read this owner manual completely and understand all operating
features.
• Take sufficient time training with safe and proper riding technique.
• Practice until you are knowledgeable and comfortable with your scooter.
• Become knowledgeable with all road signs.
! WARNING Failure to follow any SAFETY INSTRUCTION could cause severe injury or even death to
the scooter operator, passenger or a bystander.
Protective Gear
Riding a scooter leaves the rider exposed. Therefore, wearing appropriate protective gear can prevent or
diminish injuries from accidents.
1.
An Approved Helmet
The majority of serious scooter injuries and deaths are the direct result of a head injury. Therefore, drivers
and passengers should always wear an approved helmet to prevent or reduce the chance of head injury.
An approved helmet needs to:
7
•
•
•
Meet U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards. In addition with labels from the
Safety Helmet Council of America, the American National Standard Institute (ANSI), or the Snell
Memorial Foundation to assure the integrity of the product.
Fits snugly on your head.
Have no obvious defects such as cracks, loose padding or frayed straps.
2.
Eye and Face Protection
• A plastic face shield can help prevent accidents by guarding the face from debris, allowing the rider to
devote full attention to the road.
• Goggles can protect your eyes in the same manner. Never use eyeglasses or sunglasses in place of a
face shield or goggles.
3.
Clothing
• Bright clothing should be worn by the driver so as to be easily seen by other motorists.
• Jacket and pants should cover your arms and legs completely, but not too loose to flap in the wind or
catch on the levers or wheels which could result in an accident.
• Leather or heavy denim clothing is preferred as these materials help to prevent or reduce abrasion.
• Boots or shoes should be high enough to cover your ankles and sturdy enough to provide support.
• Gloves give you a better grip and help protect your hands from the elements.
8
Safe Riding
• Keep enough distance from the other vehicles around you as this gives you time to react.
• Ensure that you have a driver’s license with correct classification to ride this scooter in your state.
• Always observe the rules of the road. Observe the posted speed limit, and signal your turns well in
advance.
• Know your limits. Do not go faster then you are able to control. Always travel at a speed that is proper
for the terrain, operating conditions, and your experience.
• Always inspect your scooter each time you use it to make sure it is in safe operating condition.
• Always follow the inspection and schedule maintenance procedures described in this manual.
• Test your brakes after operation in wet conditions. If necessary, apply the brakes several times to let
friction dry out the linings.
• Never attempt wheelies, jumps and other stunts, as these could cause damage to the scooter and loss of
control.
• Always keep both hands on the handlebars and feet on the floor board during operation.
• Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while riding scooter.
• Limit the travel distance to avoid fatigue that can affect your performance.
Being seen
Many scooter accidents are caused by car drivers who do not see scooter riders on the road. Therefore you
need to ensure to follow these guidelines:
• Wear bright clothing to increase visibility. Bright orange, yellow or green jackets or vests and brightly
colored helmet can help others see you.
9
•
•
•
•
Always use turn signals when you are planning to turn or merge to main road and turn it off after you
have made your turn.
Flash brake lights whenever you are going to slow down more quickly or where others may not expect
you are going to slow down. Stay out of blind spot of other motorists.
When you come to an intersection, move to the portion of your lane that will bring you into another
driver’s field of sight at the earliest possible moment.
Carrying Passengers & Loading
! WARNING:
• This scooter is rated for 2 people; total weight of the rider and the passenger must not exceed 330 lbs.
• Do not exceed 17.5 lbs of cargo.
• Attach the load securely since a loose load can catch in the wheel or rack causing skidding.
• You should avoid carrying passengers or large loads until you have gained sufficient experience
riding alone. Extra weight changes handling, stability, braking performance, turns, acceleration and
deceleration.
To carry passengers safely you must:
1.
Instruct the passenger before you start
• Must wear a helmet.
• Get on the scooter after you have started the engine.
• Sit as far forward as possible without crowding the driver.
10
•
•
•
•
•
Hold firmly to your waist, hips, or belt or passenger handle.
Keep both feet on the pegs at all time, even when the scooter is stopped.
Keep legs away from the muffler.
Stay directly behind you, leaning as you lean.
Avoid any unnecessary talking or motion.
2. •
•
•
•
Adjust your riding technique with passenger
Go slower
Start slowing earlier as you approach a stop.
Maintain a larger cushion of space ahead and to the sides.
Wait for larger gaps when you want to cross, enter, or merge with traffic.
LOADS
• A scooter is not really designed to carry cargo. However, small loads can be carried safely if they are
positioned and fastened properly.
• The rear luggage rack can carry 11 lbs max. The compartment under the seat can carry 6.5 lbs max. No
more than 17.5 lbs. total.
• Keep the load low and distribute the load evenly. An uneven load can cause the scooter to drift to one side.
11

• Turn off engine before refueling.
• Do not to spill any gasoline on the engine, exhaust system or the plastic body.
• Do not refuel while smoking or near any open flame.
• Do not operate your scooter in a closed area as the exhaust fumes may cause loss of consciousness or

Transmission Oil Fill Plug
Transmission Oil Drain Plug
! WARNING: Use caution when changing oil to avoid burns!
CAUTION:
• If the scooter is used in excessively wet areas, or used in severe conditions replace the transmission oil
more often than recommended.
• Make sure that the fill and drain plugs are tight and not leaking.
• Make sure that no foreign substances fall into the transmission box.
36
AIR FILTER MAINTENANCE
• The air filter should be inspected and cleaned every 1000 km interval.
• Remove left body cover.
• Remove the screws that hold the cover of the air cleaner in place and lift off the air cleaner cover. (See
page 13 for air box location)
• Lift out the air filter screen and cartridge.
• Clean the screen and cartridge with compressed air.
• Reassemble the air filter components and back end of the scooter.
CAUTION:
• If riding in an excessively dusty location, the air filter should be inspected more often than the
recommended.
• When remounting the air cleaner cover components onto the scooter. Be careful to fit all pieces into
their correct place. Failure to achieve proper fit will cause leaks in the air intake system that can cause
engine damage.
• Handle the air filter cartridge carefully so that it does not become deformed.
• Never allow water to enter the air filter assembly.
NOTE: Clean and/or replace the air filter components if you experience a decrease of engine power.
37
Battery Maintenance
Your Scooter uses a calcium sealed, maintenance free, VRLA battery and you should not remove the sealing
strip once the battery has been installed and prepped by a TNG dealer.
NOTE: To protect your battery against failure it is important to keep your battery fully charged. This
applies primarily if you are not riding your scooter on a regular basis or are traveling only short distances
while you ride. In these limited use situations you should charge your battery at least once a month using the
included battery charger for a minimum of 6 hours. Additionally, it is important that your scooter be stored
in a dry area and protected from extreme temperatures.
Battery Replacement
1. The scooter battery is self-sustained by electric current generated by the alternator within the scooter.
It’s a good idea to replace the battery every three years.
2. Always turn the ignition system off prior to replacing the battery.
3. Observe correct polarity when replacing the battery. The RED wire is connected to the positive battery
terminal and the BLACK wire is connected to the negative battery terminal.
4. Make sure that the battery posts are kept clean at all times and have good contact area. Use a wire brush
to remove any signs of corrosion if required.
5. Avoid sparks or flame when handling the battery.
38
Fuse Replacement
Main Fuse
1. The main fuse is located next to the battery in the floorboard; it is rated at 15 Amps.
2. A visual inspection of the fuse will tell if the fuse is “open” (burned out).
3. If the fuse is open, then it needs replacement.
NOTE: Check fuse for good tight contact within fuse housing.
! WARNING: Always turn the ignition off before inspecting the fuses.
CAUTION:
• When removing the fuse from the fuse box do not squeeze the fuse puller or it will release the fuse.
• When inserting the new fuse be sure that it fits snugly into the fuse socket. A loose fit will cause
39
•
•
•
intermittent electrical problems and possible overheating of the fuse contacts.
Always replace the open fuse with another of the same type!
When washing your scooter, be sure not to get water into the fuse box as this could cause electrical
problem.
Do not use a fuse of higher amperage than recommended; this will cause extensive damage to the
electrical system and possibly a fire.
NOTE: If the new fuse burns out immediately, have a TNG dealer check scooters complete electrical
system.
J. WINTERIZING INSTRUCTIONS
Proper preparation of your scooter for winter storage will make it more likely that you will be able to get
out and enjoy that first spring ride. There are five basic areas that should be considered when preparing to
put your TNG Scooter into storage. The five areas of focus are:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
40
Battery
Fuel System
Engine
Tires
Cover
1.
BATTERY
Maintaining the state of charge of your scooter battery during an extended period of storage is essential to
insure the maximum service life of the battery.
If at all possible, remove the battery from the vehicle. Clean the battery and terminals using a solution of
baking soda and water, making sure that none of the solution enters the battery during cleaning. After the
battery is cleaned, inspect it for any signs of damage or extraordinary wear that may have occurred while
in service.
At this time you should also use a baking soda and water solution to clean the battery compartment of the
vehicle to help neutralize any electrolyte that may be present. Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly.
You may return the battery to the battery compartment, or you may store it separately. If it is put back into
the battery compartment for storage it is best that you do not hook up the battery cables until you are ready
to take the scooter out of storage.
Charge the battery to 100%. If the battery is stored at temperatures below 60°F, recharge to 100% every
month. If stored in a warm area above 60°F, recharge the battery every two weeks.
Before you connect your charger to the battery, make sure that you know how your battery charger operates.
Some chargers will not stop charging when the battery reaches 100%, while others will stop automatically.
Some automatic chargers will begin charging again when the battery level drops, while others will not begin
41
charging again until power to the charger has been disconnected and reconnected.
If your charger is one that will continue to charge even after the battery reaches 100%, you must manually
disconnect power to the charger when charging is complete or the battery may be damaged from overcharging.
These chargers should normally be connected for only a few hours at a time.
If your charger is one that must be disconnected in order to reset it to charge, you must manually do so at
the proper intervals.
CAUTION! During charging of a small scooter battery, a low volume of hydrogen gas will be emitted.
While opening a window in the room is not generally required, battery charging should always be done far
away from any source of flame or electrical spark.
2.
FUEL SYSTEM
Properly preparing the fuel system before putting your scooter into storage will reduce potential problems
due to a plugged or corroded system. There are two ways this can be accomplished.
A. DRY FUEL SYSTEM
This technique is suitable if you are going to store your bike in a heated location where condensation due
to temperature fluctuations is not a problem.
This requires you to fully drain the entire fuel system including the fuel tank and carburetor. Generally,
you will need to remove the float bowl of the carburetor, and then blow all of the fuel out of the jets with
compressed air to ensure that everything is perfectly dry.
42
B. WET FUEL SYSTEM
This technique is suitable if you are going to store your bike in a heated location where condensation due
to temperature fluctuations is not a problem.
Purchase fuel stabilizer and add it to a nearly full tank of gasoline in the concentration indicated on
the label for long-term storage. Opti-Mizer Fuel Stabilizer is the recommended additive. Opti-Mizer
is available through your local TNG Dealer.
After adding the fuel stabilizer, run the engine for at least 10 minutes to allow the stable fuel to make its way
through the entire fuel delivery system and into the carburetor.
Top off the tank with gasoline to vacate all of the air. This will reduce or eliminate chances of condensation
due to temperature fluctuations. Do not use E85 or fuel containing more than 10% ethanol.
3.
TIRES
It is best if the weight of the scooter can be kept off the tires so that a flat spot or cracked sidewall does not
develop.
With nearly all TNG Scooters, when the bike is on the center stand the front wheel is on the ground while
the rear wheel is slightly off the ground. You may simply be able to lift he front wheel of the scooter off
the ground and place something under the frame of the scooter and have both wheels off the ground. Make
sure that the scooter is stable and cannot fall or be knocked over easily.
43
In most cases it will require a little more work to get both wheels off the ground. Place a thick wooden
plank or other object on the floor, making sure that the plank is long enough to easily accommodate the
width of your center stand. Roll the scooter over the plank and put the bike on the center stand, with the
stand sitting on top of the plank. Then lift the front wheel of the scooter off the ground and place something
underneath the frame to support the front of the scooter. Make sure the scooter is stable and cannot fall or
be knocked over easily.
4. ENGINE (OPTIONAL)
If you are placing your scooter into storage in an unheated area, temperature fluctuations may cause
condensation inside the cylinder of the engine. Condensation could cause rust and corrosion to the cylinder
wall.
To reduce the chance of getting rust or corrosion, perform the following steps:
• Remove the spark plug.
• Squirt about 2 ounces of 2-cycle oil into the cylinder. (This applies to both 2 and 4-cycle engines.)
• With the spark plug still out, turn the engine over a few times.
• Reinstall the spark plug.
5.
COVER
TNG Scooters come standard with a nylon weather cover. Placing the cover over the scooter while it is in
storage will reduce the dirt and dust, which would naturally accumulate on the scooter.
