Instrument Cluster
The instrument cluster provides you with
operating conditions of your vehicle. To the
left is the fuel gauge which indicates the fuel
level in the fuel tank. When the needle
reaches the red zone on the gauge, you are
running low on fuel and the tank should be
refilled. This gauge is controlled by a fuel
level sending unit located inside the fuel tank.
The center speedometer indicates the
current speed of your vehicle. The
speedometer is calibrated in both MPH,
(Miles per hour) and KPH, (Kilometers per
hour). This gauge is controlled by a cable
attached to the front wheel of the vehicle.
Ignition Switch

Air Filter
Air Filter Maintenance
To maintain the highest performance from your
engine and to reduce excessive wear that
could cause engine failure the engine requires
a continuous flow of clean air. Air is taken into
the engine through an air filter to clean the air
prior to mixing it with fuel and oil in the
carburetor.
During normal operation the filter
accumulates dirt from the air and will need to
be cleaned to maintain the proper air flow.
The filter should be cleaned every 3000
miles, more often if you ride in a dusty or
dirty environment and the element should be
replaced every year.

LIMITED VEHICLE WARRANTY
Scheduled maintenance service is the responsibility of the owner during and after the warranty
period. In the event of a failure or required repair, the owner should take the vehicle to an
authorized dealer for repair without undue delay and within a maximum of thirty (30) days of the
occurrence of the problem. All eligible warranty repairs must be made at any authorized dealer’s
normal place of business. Any transportation costs, or other expenses which may occur in order to
obtain warranty service, are the responsibility of the owner. All eligible repairs covered under this
warranty will be paid to the servicing dealer only, by ETON America, and no additional payments
shall be made for authorized warranty repairs.
Dealer and/or ETON America are not responsible for loss of use, other damage or inconvenience
due to warranty repairs. It is the customer’s/buyer’s responsibility to review with the selling dealer
the pre-delivery service schedule to assure that the machine is properly serviced prior to delivery
acceptance. It is recommended that the buyer take a test ride to familiarize themselves with the
machine and to make certain the unit is in proper operating condition. The dealer is responsible for
checking and performing all items on the “set-up and pre-delivery checklist” prior to delivery to
the customer.
This warranty is valid at any authorized ETON Dealer in the United States only. In the event you
experience any problem obtaining prompt service, contact ETON America’s customer service
department for assistance. Always consult first with your selling dealer and/or service personnel
for assistance with any service work or repairs. In the event you have a problem obtaining service
send your name, address, and vehicle identification number to Eton America for assistance.
The above stated policy is the only policy offered and backed by ETON America, and no other
organization or individual is authorized to make or offer any different arrangements. Some states
prohibit certain limitations or conditions or do not allow exclusions or limitations. You may be
eligible for additional consideration, so check with your local dealer or appropriate state agency
for assistance. Rights vary from state to state, and you may have other rights not offered in this
warranty.
ETON America warrants that all new vehicles comply with applicable US regulations.
