Head Light Control Switch For safety, the head light system of this unit was designed to be illuminated at all times while the unit is running. The intensity of the light is changed by using the head light control switch located on the right‐hand handlebar. It is a three position slide switch. Far right position sets beam intensity to 20% (Day Time Running), middle position sets beam intensity to 80% (Low Beam), and far left position sets beam intensity to 100% (High Beam). The vehicle is equipped with a PTC controller that will dim the lights to the 20% position automatically if the engine RPM falls below the pre‐set threshold for more than a minute. Increasing the engine RPM will return the light to the normal level for the control switch selection. Ignition Switch The ignition switch is located on the control column's right side below the handlebars. A key is required to work the switch. This switch has three positions, On, Off and " “ Locked. The switch must be in the on position for the engine to start and run. The off position disconnects power to the ignition and light circuits and stops the engine. The “ ” locked position, locks the steering column and allows the key to be removed. In order to turn the key to the " " locked position you must press down on the key with the steering column turned slightly to the left. NOTE: Always lock your vehicle when leaving it unattended and take your keys for additional security against theft of your vehicle. The ignition key also unlocks your fuel cap and under seat storage compartments. Instrument Panel
The instrument panel 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. The right side is a series of three indicator lamps. The top most lamps in the panel will indicate that the turn signal have been activated and also indicates which signal lamps are illuminated. The right indicator lamp indicates the head light controller is in the Hi‐Beam, 100%, position when illuminated. The left lamp indicates the 2 cycle oil level in the oil tank. When illuminated your oil tank is low and needs to be refilled. Continued operations of the engine with a low oil condition will cause severe damage to the engine and potentially unsafe operating condition. Refill your oil tank with High grade JASO FC 2 cycle injector oil. 7

Manual Choke Lever This scooter is equipped with a manually operated carburetion choke system. The engine choke lever is used to enrich the fuel mixture when starting the engine from a cold start. When first starting the engine,(cold start) ,place the lever in the full left position, (Choke closed or on) After allowing the engine to warm up for 15‐20 seconds, slowly move the lever back to the right until the engine idles down runs smooth. The lever to the full right is the normal operation position. (Choke open or off). Throttle Control The throttle control is the right‐hand handle grip. Throttle is controlled by twisting the grip. The throttle control is spring loaded and set at the factory to return to the idle position when pressure is released. To increase the throttle, twist the handle grip in a counter clockwise rotation. To decrease throttle, twist the hand grip in a clockwise rotation or release your pressure and allow the throttle to return on its own. The throttle cable should be adjusted so there is 5‐10mm, (¼"), free travel of the throttle hand grip before the throttle starts to open. Keep the throttle cable lubricated and operating smoothly. If the cable sticks or is hard to operate, lubricate the cable by disconnecting the cable from the throttle hand grip and lubricating with a commercial cable lubricant available at your dealer. Replace the cable if it shows signs of fraying or corrosion or is kinked or bent. To adjust the throttle cable's free play, slide the protective cover down the cable to expose the cable adjusting system. Loosen the locking nut and adjust the cable length by turning the adjusting collar. Check the free travel in the throttle hand grip until you have 5‐10mm, (1/4") free travel. Tighten the locking nut against the adjusting collar and slide the protective cover over the adjusting system. Replace the cable if there is no adjustment remaining or the proper free travel cannot be obtained with the adjustment system. Brake Systems Front and Rear Brakes This vehicle is equipped with front hydraulic disc brake and a rear hydraulic disc brake. The front brake is controlled by the long brake lever on the right‐handlebar. The rear brake is controlled by the long lever on the left‐Handlebar. 8

The rear brake is the primary stopping brake on your vehicle. Using the rear brake to stop your vehicle will prevent steering control loss. Use your front and rear brakes in combination to control your speed while descending a grade. Use caution not to apply too much pressure to your front brake so that the wheels lock up, stop turning, and cause a loss of steering control. If the front wheels lock up, stop turning, lightly reduce the pressure on the front brake lever until it unlocks and the wheel start to turn. Brake System Inspection Visually inspect the brake lines for any signs of wear. Inspect the lines for leaks at all connections and look for wear along the entire line. Replace the line if any worn areas are found. The brake is under great pressure when the brakes are applied and any worn spot could cause a rupture of the line. Inspect the brake arm, spring, rod and fastener for signs of wear or damage. Operate the brake lever while watching the brake mechanism for proper operation. Tighten, repair or replaces parts as needed to insure safe and proper operation of the brake system. Clean any build‐up of mud or debris from the brake mechanism. The brakes are equipped with a wear indicator to alert you when your brake pads need replacing. Apply light pressure to the brake lever and slowly push the unit forward. If you hear a high pitched metallic scraping sound, you need to replace your brake pads. The minimum pad thickness is 3.0mm. DO NOT RIDE A VEHICLE WITH WORN BRAKE PADS. Check the rotor disc for cracks, warping or color distortion. Replace rotor disc at first sign of problem. Check rotor disc thickness. Minimum thickness is 3.1mm. Replace the disc if below minimum thickness. Check the fluid level in the fluid reservoir by checking the site glass for the level. The fluid level should fill at least ¾ of site glass when the unit is setting on a level surface. Test the brakes by applying pressure to the brake lever and trying to push the unit forward. If the wheel rotates while the brakes are applied, check your fluid level and brake pads. If the brake lever feels spongy or does not stop when squeezed, you may have air in the lines. All air must be purged from the brake lines for the disc brake to operate properly. (See purging brake lines). 9

Hydraulic Fluid Reservoir Fill the reservoir to 1/8" from top with Dot‐3 SAEJ1703 grade brake fluid. Refold the cover gasket as shown in picture and replace cover and bolts. Caution: DO NOT allow dirt to fall into the reservoir. Remove the reservoir cover by removing the two cover bolts. 10
Copyright ©2008-2009 ETON America, all rights reserved.
Purging the Brake Lines For the hydraulic brake system to operate safely, the brake system must be purged of air in the lines and reservoir. To bleed the air will require two people to perform the following procedure. Place a drain pan under the brake caliper to catch the fluid. 1. Open the bleeder valve 1/2 turn counter 2. Squeeze the brake lever to expel air from the system. 3. While holding the brake lever, close the bleeder valve. 4. Repeat steps 2 through 4 until the brake fluid coming from the bleeder valve is a solid stream without any air, then close the valve and replace rubber protection cap. 5. Test the brake system by squeezing the lever. 6. The lever should feel firm and stop without fading. Fuel System with a locking fuel tank cap that is opened with the same key that is used in the ignition switch. To unlock your cap simply insert the ignition key into the lock and turn clockwise until the cap releases. Lift the cap from the tank and refuel your vehicle with unleaded automotive grade gasoline of 89 octane or higher. Fuel Cap To replace the cap, align the Locator lug on the cap with the notch in the tank neck and press the cap down until you hear the locking lugs click. Fuel Tank The fuel tank fill cap is located at the rear of the vehicle just behind the seat. Your vehicle is equipped Every time you refuel your unit, check the rubber seal inside the cap for cuts, tears and dirt. Clean or replace the seal if it becomes worn or torn. The seal must be in good condition to ensure a proper seal of the cap to the tank to prevent fuel spills. DO NOT allow dirt or other debris to enter the tank when refueling. 11
Copyright ©2008-2009 ETON America, all rights reserved.
Air Filter Replace the cap if damaged or if it will not seal to the tank. The fuel tank capacity is 5.5 liters, 1.5 gal. NEVER REFUEL YOUR VEHICLE when the engine is running or with a hot exhaust system. Spilling fuel on a HOT engine or exhaust could cause a fire.
Wait 30 minutes after turning off the unit before refueling. Wipe up any fuel spills before restarting. Inline Fuel Filter Your vehicle is equipped with an inline fuel filter to prevent dirt and debris from entering the carburetor and engine. The filter should be replaced every 10,000 miles or each year of operation. Replacement and fuel line inspection should be performed by an authorized ETON dealer only. DO NOT start or operate the engine if the fuel filter or lines are leaking. Leaking fuel can cause a fire. 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. The air filter box is located on the left side of the engine under the body cover. It is a black box about 6" square and is attached to the crankcase with two bolts and the carburetor by a tube. 12
Copyright ©2008-2009 ETON America, all rights reserved.
Spark Plug Cleaning the Filter 1. Remove the air filter box cover. 2. Remove the filter element from the air box. 3. Wash the element in a non‐flammable solvent such as Air‐Filter cleaner from your local auto parts dealer. 4. Dry the element completely before continuing. 5. Soak the element in clean engine oil until completely saturated. 6. Squeeze out the excess oil until the element does not drip any oil. 7. Allow the element to dry then reinstall the element and cover. Replace the spark plug every 10,000 miles or if the plug should become damaged or fouled. We recommend that you use NGK ‐ CR7HSA. Disconnect spark plug wire. Clean dirt from around spark plug base with brush or air. (Caution: do not allow dirt or foreign material to enter the engine) Remove spark plug with spark plug wrench. Set the spark plug gap on the new plug to 0.023". Install the new plug screwing it in finger tight and then use the plug wrench to screw the plug in another ½ turn. Inspect the spark plug wire for cuts, nicks or other damage. Replace as needed. Electrical Battery Tires and Wheels The tires and wheels of your Beamer have been engineered to match the suspension to give you a smooth, comfortable ride. They were also designed to afford you with mileage economy, to give you the best miles per gallon possible. Tire Pressures Recommended tire pressures (Cold) are: Front 120/70‐12 18psi / 1.25kg/cm2 Rear 130/70‐12 25psi / 1.75kg/cm2 The Beamer’s battery is located under the floor board mat and supplies electrical power to the electrical system. The battery is a 12 volt gel acid type that contains no liquid electrolyte.

Your engine requires SAE 20W‐40 engine oil and the crankcase capacity is 1.0 Liters / 1 quart. The engine oil should be changed before the start of each riding season or every 1000 Km of operation. When riding where conditions are dusty or humidity is high the engine oil should be change more frequently. Engine & Transmission Oil Checking Engine Oil Level Changing Engine Oil Your Scooter uses automotive type engine oil to lubricate the engine. The engine oil dip stick is located on the right hand side of your engine below the transmission shifting lever. To check your oil level, remove the dip stick by turning the thumb hold counter clockwise until the stick has been completely disengaged from the threads. Pull the dip stick out of the crankcase and check the level of the oil as indicated on the dip stick. The engine oil is full when the oil reaches the level on the stick as indicated in the photo above. Always check your engine oil level with the engine off and cold. Removing the dip stick with the engine running could cause hot oil to splash from the crankcase causing severe burns. Checking your engine oil while the engine is hot can give you a false reading; always check the oil level with a cold engine. 1. Place an oil catch pan under the unit directly below the engine crankcase. 2. Remove the crankcase drain plug located on the bottom of the crankcase on the underside of the unit. Remove the engine oil dipstick located on the right hand side of the engine below the shifter shaft. 3. Allow the oil to drain completely (15‐30 min). 4. Reinstall the drain plug and tighten. Torque to 17‐22 Ibf‐ft 5. Fill the crankcase with of SAE 20W‐40engineoil through the dip dipstick hole. 1 liter/1 quart. 6. Reinstall the engine oil dipstick and finger tighten. 7. Dispose of used oil at a proper recycling station as required by law 15

Ensure you are wearing proper clothing and protective gear, such as helmet and hard soled shoes. Your Scooter uses SAE 80W‐90 gear oil to lubricate the drive and transmission gears. The gear oil should be changed before each riding season or every 5000 Km operation. 1. Place an oil catch pan under t he unit directly below the transmission box. 2. Remove the transmission box drain bolt. 3. Remove t he transmission box fill hole bolt. 4. Allow the oil to d rain completely (1 5‐30 m in). 5. Reinstall the drain bolt and tighten. Torque to 9‐12lbf‐ft 6. Fill t he transmission box with SAE 80W‐90 gear oil 150cc engine = 180cc /6.1oz 7. Reinstall the fill hole bolt and torque to 9‐ 12lbf‐ft. 8. Dispose of used oil at a proper recycling station as required by law. Beamer Break­In procedures Starting Procedures Your Beamer requires a break‐In period just as with all other internal combustion engines. This period allows the engine parts to seat and wear properly without undue strain which can cause premature failure. 1. For the first 1000 miles of operation do not operate your vehicle above 18mph. for extended periods of time. 2. Your first tank of fuel should be a pre‐mixture of fuel and oil at a 50:1 ratio. This will ensure that the oil pump system has been primed and bled of air that may have occurred in shipping. The following procedure must be followed each time you start your Beamer. Park the unit on a level surface. Insert the key into the ignition switch and turn to the "ON" position. Turn the engine stop switch to the "ON" position. Apply slight pressure to the throttle grip. Hold in both brake levers while pressing the starter button on the right handlebar switch. 16
Copyright ©2008-2009 ETON America, all rights reserved.
NOTE: Your Beamer is equipped with a safety brake interlock switch which will prevent the engine from starting without the brakes being applied. Your unit should start within 10 seconds of pushing the starter button. If the unit fails to start check the following: 1. Engine stop switch is "ON” position. 2. Brake levers applied fully. If your battery does not have enough charge to turn the starter motor you can use the alternate kick starter to crank the engine. Swing the kick starter foot‐pedal to the out board position and while holding both brake levers, apply a quick downward push to turn the engine over. Driving your Beamer Your Beamer was manufactured to meet all Federal D.O.T. regulations. State and local regulations govern the use of this class of vehicle. Check with your local DMV office before riding this vehicle on the highway. Set yourself in a comfortable position on the seat with both hands on the handlebars. Ensure that you have an unobstructed operating area from which to control your Beamer. When carrying a passenger, always ensure that they place their feet on the passenger pedals. Always keep your feet on the footrests and your hands on the handlebar grips while operating your Beamer. Doing so will give you the best control of the unit. Be sure that you and your passenger are NOT wearing loose fitting clothing that could become entangled in the moving parts of the vehicle. Start the vehicle in a forward motion by slowly increasing the throttle pressure. Never place more than 12lbs / 5kg load on the rear rack. Doing so may cause the vehicle to become unbalanced and cause an unsafe driving condition. Never carry anything on the handlebars or your lap while driving your vehicle. Doing so can cause a loss of control over the vehicle. Learn to steer your scooter by shifting your weight in the direction of the turn. (Lean into the turn) Use your front & rear brakes to control your speed and to stop. Sudden braking force can cause the vehicle to start sliding. To regain control, release the braking pressure until you have regained control of the vehicle. When the road surface is wet, the braking distance is double that of when the road surface is dry. Keep a safe distance between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. It is not recommended to operate this vehicle in slippery conditions such as on snow or ice covered roads. When going downhill, release the throttle grip and use your brakes to control your speed. After washing your vehicle your brake shoe and pad may have become wet and will reduce the braking force until they have had a chance to dry. Parking your Beamer 1. Always park your vehicle on a level surface. 2. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position to stop the engine. 3. Set the engine stop switch to "OFF” position. 4. Turn your front wheel slightly to the left and turn the ignition key to the lock position to lock the steering column. 5. Remove the ignition key to prevent unauthorized use or theft of your vehicle. 6. Park the vehicle by using either the main parking stand or the side kick stand.
