SAFETY
Your Moped and You
11. Ride with both hands on the handlebars and both feet on the
footrests. Passengers should hold onto the passenger handles
securely and keep both feet on the footrests.
Congratulations on your new Cruze moped! If you ride safely
and maintain your moped, you will enjoy many miles of happy
riding.
Protective Apparel
The operator should wear protective apparel, such as a
DOT-approved helmet, gloves, and eye protection. Passengers
should also wear a helmet. Refer to local regulations. Loose
clothing should not be worn. The exhaust system gets very hot
during operation - do not touch the exhaust pipe when hot. The
operator and passenger should wear trousers and shoes/boots
that protect ankles and feet.
Safety
1. Read this manual completely before operating your moped.
2. Inspect your moped before riding.
3. The rider should possess the type of license required by local
regulations.
4. Obey traffic regulations.
5. Ride defensively and maintain a safe distance from other
vehicles.
6. Wear bright clothing so other drivers can see you.
7. Don't cut into other lanes or weave. Don't exceed the speed
limit or ride faster than is safe for the road conditions. When it is
raining, the road surface may be slippery - reduce speed.
8. Be aware of the weather and road conditions. Wet roads can
be very slippery, especially painted lines. Braking distances will
be significantly longer.
9. Use turn signals or hand signals when turning or changing
lanes.
10. Use caution when riding through intersections and
entering/exiting parking lots
Loads and Accessories
1. The total weight of the operator, passenger and luggage
should not exceed the maximum load of the moped (See:
Specifications). The maximum load for the storage
compartment beneath the seat is 22 lbs. The maximum load for
the rear luggage rack or box is 10 lbs.
2. Items carried on the rear luggage rack should not block the
taillight. Keep the weight of items on the luggage rack low and
close to the centerline of the moped. This weight distribution will
make it easier to control the moped.
3. Adjust the tire pressure according to the weight of items
being carried and driving conditions.
4. Luggage should be secured to the moped and checked
frequently to ensure it has not shifted.

8
OPERATION
Gasoline and Engine Oil
Break-in Period
The break-in period is critical to extending the life of your moped
and achieving optimal performance.
Gasoline/Fuel
Your Cruze moped features a four-stroke engine. It is designed to
use unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 93 or higher. Do
NOT mix the fuel with engine oil. If the engine makes a knocking
sound, the octane rating of the fuel may be too low. Most gasoline
available in the US is E10, which means it contains 10%
ethanol. Today’s gasoline can go bad in as little as two
weeks. Stale fuel can cause your moped to run poorly. Ethanol
can clog the carburetor and cause the engine to run poorly.
Ethanol attracts water, which can cause the engine to run poorly.
Cruze recommends using an ethanol additive to stabilize fuel
every time you fill up. If you are not going to ride your moped for a
while, drain all the fuel from your fuel tank and the carburetor.
Start the engine and allow it to run until it stops by itself.
Max Speed
Do not exceed the following speeds during the break-in period:
Break-in
Distance (Miles)
Speed (MPH)
0-100
101-200
201-500
501-1,000
18
22
25
30
Avoid Excessively Low Speeds and Low RPM
Lubrication is most effective at higher engine RPM. Vary the
engine RPM and avoid low speeds (below 18MPH). Within the
first 500 miles, do not twist the throttle to the WOT (Wide Open
Throttle) position, do not twist the throttle aggressively, and do not
ride for long periods of time at WOT.
Engine Oil
The engine holds 0.6 quarts of engine oil. Use high quality SAE
10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
Warm Up
Allow the engine to idle until the oil has a chance to reach all parts
of the engine and come up to normal operating temperature. Do
not ride the moped or twist the throttle suddenly when the engine
is cold. You will hear the engine RPM decrease after a few
minutes. This indicates the automatic choke is operating properly.
Gear (Hub) Oil
Use GL3 or GL5 gear oil.

the “RUN” position
.
(b) Move the Run (aka “Kill”) switch to the “RUN” position
.
(c) Squeeze one of the brake levers (This is a safety interlock).
(d) Press the start button
. If you have not ridden your moped
recently, twist the throttle grip a few times first.
Note: Do not engage the starter for more than 5 seconds at a time.
Holding it longer will drain the battery and could damage the starter
motor. Release the start button once the engine starts. Do not press
it while the engine is running. Allow the starter to cool after each
use. If the engine does not start after multiple attempts, hold the
throttle at 1/8 to 1/4 of full throttle and press the start button again.
2. Kick Starting
(a) Put the moped up on the straight stand
(b) Turn the ignition switch to the “RUN” position
(c) Move the “RUN” switch to the “RUN” position
(d) Step down on the kick start pedal with your right foot smoothly
(e) It is not necessary to squeeze a brake lever when kick starting
Caution: Do not use excessive kicking force or stand on the
kick start lever. The kicking motion should be parallel to the
scooter. Do not let the engine idle for long periods of time.
Air-cooled engines can overheat when not moving. Once the
engine has reached normal operating temperature, ride it at
normal speeds.
10
OPERATION
Riding
Riding on a Slope
1. When riding up a steep slope, the moped may slow down,
particularly when carrying a passenger.
2. When riding down a steep slope, use the brakes to limit speed.
On long hills, pull over occasionally to allow the brakes to cool.
If this is your first time riding a moped, take a rider training course
or seek instruction from an experienced rider. A Rider Safety
Presentation can be downloaded from the Cruze website. Find a
safe, non-crowded area to practice. Become familiar with all
controls and their operation.
Braking
1. Twist the throttle away from yourself to the idle position to slow
down and stop.
2. Simultaneously apply the front and rear brakes. Apply the front
brake more than the rear in most circumstances.
3. Before stopping, consider the braking distance. Wet or slippery
conditions require significantly longer braking distances.
4. After coming to a stop, turn the ignition key to the “Off”
position to turn off the engine. To stop the engine while riding, use
your right thumb to move the “Kill” switch to the “Off” position. Do
not take your hand off the handlebars to touch the ignition switch.
It is the operator’s responsibility to know and obey all traffic
regulations. Riding with only one hand on the handlebars is
dangerous - keep both hands on the handlebars and both feet on
the footrests.
Do not brake when cornering. Slow to a safe speed before
entering a turn. Be aware of road conditions; reduce speed on
wet or sandy roads. Painted lines, such as cross-walks, and
manhole covers can be extremely slippery when wet.
Twist the throttle toward yourself smoothly and release the brake
lever at the same time. The moped will start moving forward. The
speed can be adjusted by twisting the throttle grip: twist it toward
yourself to accelerate. Twist away from yourself or release to
slow down. Always use the appropriate turn signal or hand signal
when riding on a road with other traffic.
Warning: The higher the speed, the longer the braking distance.
Maintain sufficient distance from the vehicle or object ahead of you.
Using only the front or rear brake is dangerous. This may result in a
skid and loss of control. It will also increase the braking distance
and cause rapid wear of the brake.
Parking
Turn the handlebars all the way to the left. Push the ignition key in
and turn it left to the “LOCK” position to lock the steering column.
Gently wiggle the handlebars until the lock engages. Remove the
ignition key.
Caution: Do not ride at speeds indicated by the red zone of the
speedometer or tachometer. Do not twist the throttle too quickly
– this could cause the tires to lose traction and result in the
moped slipping or skidding.

Service Intervals
This
chart
lists
the
maintenance that must be
performed after a certain
distance or period of time,
whichever comes first.
Following this schedule will
extend the life of your
moped and improve its
reliability,
performance,
and safety.
MAINTENANCE
Maintenance
Changing the Engine Oil
Many components, such as the steering system, brakes,
suspension, and engine, should be maintained carefully and
require special equipment and procedures. These tasks should
be performed by a certified technician at an authorized dealer.
Your dealer can provide further information and replacement
parts. All service must be performed by an authorized dealer
during the warranty period.
Stand the moped on a flat surface on the main stand. The
engine should be warm.
1. Remove the dipstick and clean
it with clean cloth.
2. Put a container under the
engine to catch the oil.
3. Remove the oil drain plug.
Drain all of the oil. Clean the
screen.
3. Reinstall the oil plug. Do not over-tighten.
4. Add 0.6 quarts of fresh oil and run the engine for one minute.
Check the oil level. If low, add a small amount of oil and check
again
Engine Oil Level
Check the oil level regularly.
Check it when the engine is
cool. To check the oil level,
place the moped on the main
stand while on level ground.
Remove the dipstick and wipe
it with a clean rag. Insert the
dipstick into the fill port to the base of the threads. Do not
screw it in. Remove the dipstick and look at the oil level. It
should be near the top of the normal range indicated by a
series of 'X' marks. Add oil in small increments as necessary.
Note: Overfilling can damage the engine.
Changing the Gear Oil
The gear oil should be replaced at 700 miles and at 1,500 mile
intervals thereafter. Use GL3 or GL5 gear oil.
(1) Stand the moped on a flat
surface on the main stand. The
engine should be warm.
(2) Remove the hub oil drain
plug “B” and drain the used oil
into a suitable container. Clean
the drain plug and reinstall.
(3) Remove the fill plug “A” and fill with 110ml of fresh gear oil.
Re-install the fill plug.
- 13 -
MAINTENANCE
Idle Speed Adjustment
1. Start the engine and allow it
to reach normal operating
temperature.
2. Make sure the throttle grip is
at the idle position. Adjust the
idle speed screw “D” to
between
1,400rpm
and
1,600rpm, or so that the engine
idles smoothly and does not stall.
Note: Check the gear oil level before and after driving long
distances. Use the specified gear oil. Do not mix with other gear
oils. Make sure that the drain plug is securely tightened, but do
not over-tighten. Check the condition of the rubber O-ring. Be
careful when draining oil from a warm engine - it may be hot.
Carburetor
A clean and properly-adjusted carburetor is essential to engine
operation. The carburetor mixture has been set at the factory.
As the throttle cable stretches, it may be necessary to adjust it
for proper play. The idle speed should be adjusted periodically
depending on the ambient temperature, altitude, fuel, and
condition of the engine.
Note: After adjusting the throttle cable, check for proper throttle
grip movement. The throttle grip should return to the idle position
when you let go, with no increase in the idle speed of the engine.
Throttle Cable Adjustment
1. Loosen the lock screw “1”.
2. Turn the adjusting nut “2” to
so that the cable has between
0.5mm-1.0mm of free play.
3. Tighten the lock screw and
replace the rubber cover “3” to
protect the throttle adjusting
nut and lock screw.
- 14 -
MAINTENANCE
Spark Plug
To Remove the Filter:
1. Remove the plastic filter housing
cover
2. Remove the filter element
NGK CR7HSA
1. Inspect the spark plug every
1,500 miles. Remove any carbon
deposits with a wire brush or plug
cleaner. Use a gap gauge to set
the plug gap to 0.6-0.7mm.
2. When cleaning carbon deposits
on the spark plug, observe the
color on the porcelain tip. A light
gray or brown color indicates
proper operation.
Caution: Do not start engine when the air filter is not installed.
To Clean the Filter:
1. Blow air through the filter
core.
2. Pour a non-flammable
detergent into a properly-sized
container and immerse the
sponge in the detergent.
3. Squeeze the sponge to get as much of the detergent out as
possible. Do not wring it.
4. Immerse the sponge in engine oil. Then squeeze the oil out
of it. It should still be lightly soaked with oil.
5. Re-assemble the air filter. Make sure
there are no air leaks.
Note: The spark plug provided is suitable for normal operating
conditions. Using an incorrect spark plug can damage the engine.
Do not over-tighten the spark plug. Use your hand to insert the
spark plug and make sure the threads line up before using a
socket wrench. When removing the spark plug, do not allow any
dirt or foreign matter to fall into the engine through the plug hole.
Removing & Cleaning the Air Filter
The air filter is located in a plastic housing on the left side of
the moped. If it is dirty or clogged, it will reduce the amount of
air available to the engine, causing the engine to produce less
power. The filter core should be inspected and cleaned
according to the service schedule. Clean and replace the core
more frequently if the moped is used in a dusty environment.
A. Non-flammable detergent
B. Engine oil
Caution: If there is tear or hole in the core, it should be replaced.
Never use flammable solvents or gasoline to clean the filter.
- 15 -
MAINTENANCE
Brake System
Bleeding the Brakes
Your moped has a disc brake on the front wheel and a disc or
drum brake at the rear. Check the front and rear brake levers
for proper firmness. If the brakes feel spongy or soft, the brake
system may require servicing. The nut on cable-actuated drum
brakes requires periodic adjustment as the pads wear and the
cable stretches. Do not over-tighten or the brakes will
overheat.
When air is present in the brake lines, the brake levers will feel
soft or spongy. To remove
the air:
1. Squeeze and hold the
brake lever
2. Loosen the air bleed
screw “R” on the caliper.
Bleed the air from the brake
system.
3. Tighten the air bleed screw
4. Release the brake lever.
5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 until the brake lever is firm.
6. Replace the dust-proof cap that covers the drain air bleed
screw.
Make sure the fluid reservoir does not get too low, or you will
introduce more air into the system and have to start over.
Filling the Brake Master Cylinder Fluid Reservoir
The
brake
master
cylinder on hydraulic disc
brakes has a fluid
reservoir. Check the
brake fluid level window.
If the level is low, loosen
the two screws on the
cover
of
the
fluid
reservoir, open the cover, and fill to the correct level. Do not
allow dirt to enter the reservoir.
Replacing Brake Pads
A certain amount of squeal is normal. If the brakes make a
distinct squealing noise under braking, or there are nicks on
the brake disc, the brake pads may need to be adjusted or
replaced. Both pads should be replaced at the same time,
even when only one is worn to the limit.
Warning: Use the grade of brake fluid indicated on the reservoir
or slave cylinder. Do not mix. Only use fresh brake fluid. If the
brake fluid reservoir requires frequent replenishing, there may
be a leak in the system. Bring the moped to an authorized
dealer for inspection.
- 16 -
MAINTENANCE
Tires
Battery
Check the tire pressure and tread depth regularly. Check for
nails. Always replace tires when there is visible damage, such
as broken tread, cracks, or cuts in the tire wall.
The battery is installed under
the rubber floor mat or under
the seat, depending on the
model.
Clean the terminals with a
metal brush when there is
white powder. The bolts that
secure the battery cables to the
terminals should be tight.
If the moped will not be ridden for an extended period of time,
the battery should be removed and stored indoors in a and well
ventilated place. Cruze recommends using a trickle charger to
maintain your battery, especially in cold weather. Make sure
the battery is fully charged before using.
Tire Pressure
Low tire pressure causes the tires to wear rapidly and can
impair traction and handling. Over-inflation can reduce the
contact area of the tire with the ground, which can cause loss
of traction. Adjust tire pressure when the tires are cold. Refer to
the data plate on the moped for the correct pressure.
Fuse
The fuse is located in a white plastic holder near the battery.
The rated current is 15 amps. Check the fuse if there is a
sudden loss of engine or electrical power. A spare fuse can be
stored inside the holder.
Tread
Driving a moped with worn tires
decreases traction and may lead to loss
of control. Replace the front tire when
the tread depth decreases to less than
1.6mm. Replace the rear tire when its
tread depth is less than 2mm.
Caution: Use a fuse with the correct current rating. Do not use
wire or other materials. If the fuse keeps burning out, there may
be a problem in the electrical system. Contact an authorized
dealer or certified technician.

Riding after Storage
1. Replace engine oil if the moped has been stored for more
than four months.
2. Charge the battery and install/connect it.
3. Put fresh fuel in the tank. Cruze recommends using an
ethanol additive.
4. Conduct a thorough pre-riding inspection and check
performance while riding at low speed.
Bulbs
Bulb ratings are listed in the Specifications section. Use bulbs
with the same rating when replacing. Different ratings may
overload the wiring system and cause premature failure.
Mirrors
