CAUTION
02_05
DUE TO THE HIGH TEMPERATURES THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER CAN
REACH, ALWAYS TAKE CARE, WHEN PARKING THE SCOOTER, THAT THE
EXHAUST DOES NOT COME INTO CONTACT WITH FLAMMABLE MATERIALS,
TO AVOID SERIOUS BURNS.
Automatic transmission
To ensure simple, pleasurable riding, the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission with regulator and centrifugal clutch. The system is designed to give the best
possible performance in terms of both acceleration and consumption, on level ground
and uphill, thanks to the adjustments made to engine speed and transmitted torque.
If you have to stop on an uphill slope (traffic lights, traffic jam, etc.) only use the brake
to keep the vehicle still, leaving the motor running at idling speed. Using the motor to
keep the vehicle still can cause the clutch to overheat. This problem is due to the
friction of the clutch parts on the clutch bell. It is therefore recommended to avoid
conditions of prolonged clutch slippage leading to clutch overheating (for example, as
well as the situation described above, riding uphill fully laden on steep slopes or starting off on slopes greater than 25%, etc.):
1. Do not continue riding in such conditions.
2. Let the clutch cool down with the motor at idling speed for a few minutes.

2 Use
Stopping the engine (02_05)
Safe driving
WARNING
SOME SIMPLE TIPS ARE PROVIDED BELOW THAT WILL ENABLE YOU TO USE
YOUR SCOOTER ON A DAILY BASIS IN GREATER SAFETY AND WITH MORE
PEACE OF MIND.
<
Your ability and your knowledge of the vehicle form the basis of safe riding. We recommend trying out the vehicle in traffic-free zones to get to know your vehicle
completely.
ALWAYS DRIVE WITHIN YOUR LIMITS
1. Before riding off, remember to put on your helmet and fasten it correctly.
2. Reduce speed and ride cautiously on uneven roads.
3. Remember that after riding on a long stretch of wet road without using the brakes,
the braking effect is initially lower. Given these conditions, it is a good idea to operate
the brakes from time to time.
4. Do not brake hard on a wet surface, on dirt tracks or on any slippery road surface.
5. If you have to brake, use both brakes in order to divide the braking action between
both wheels.
6. Avoid starting off by mounting the scooter while it is still resting on its stand. In any
case, the rear wheel should not be turning when in comes into contact with the ground,
in order to avoid abrupt departures.
2 Use
7. If the vehicle is used on roads covered with sand, mud, snow mixed with salt, etc.,
clean the brake disc frequently with mild detergent in order to prevent abrasive substances from building up within the holes, which can result in early wear of the brake
pads.
22
CAUTION
DO NOT FORGET THAT DRIVING IN A STATE OF DRUNKENNESS, OR WHEN
UNDER THE EFFECT OF DRUGS OR CERTAIN MEDICINES, CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS FOR ONESELF AND FOR OTHERS.
CAUTION
ANY CHANGES TO THE VEHICLE PERFORMANCE AS WELL AS ALTERATIONS
TO ORIGINAL STRUCTURAL PARTS IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN BY LAW, AND
RENDERS THE VEHICLE NO LONGER CONFORMING TO THE APPROVED TYPE
AND DANGEROUS FOR RIDING.
23
2 Use
8. Any elaboration that modifies the vehicle's performances, such as tampering with
original structural parts is strictly forbidden by law, and renders the vehicle not conforming to the approved type and therefor dangerous to ride.

Engine oil level
In 4T engines, the engine oil is used to lubricate the distribution elements, the bench
bearings and the thermal group. An insufficient quantity of oil can cause serious
damage to the engine itself. In all 4T engines the decay of oil characteristics as well
as some consumption is normal. Consumption can particularly reflect the conditions
of use (i.e. when driving at "full acceleration" all the time, oil consumption increases).
In order to avoid problems, it is advisable to control oil level every time the
vehicle is used.
03_01
Engine oil level check (03_01, 03_02)
Check oil level every time the vehicle is used, with the engine cold. The level should
be between the MAX and MIN marks on the oil level dipstick "A" shown in the figure;
the stand should be firm on an even surface during the check.
If the check is carried out after the vehicle has been used, and therefore with a hot
engine, the level line will be lower; in order to carry out a correct check it is necessary
to wait at least 10 minutes after the engine has been stopped, so as to get the correct
level.
Check by pushing the dipstick all the way into the hole.
CAUTION
03_02
USING THE ENGINE WITH INSUFFICIENT LUBRICATION OR WITH THE WRONG
LUBRICANTS MAY INCREASE WEAR AND TEAR ON THE MOVING PARTS AND
MAY CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE.

Always check oil level before carrying out top-ups and add oil without exceeding the
MAX level. An engine oil check-up and top-up should be carried out every 3,000 km
at an Authorised Piaggio Service Centre.
Engine oil change (03_03)
Change oil and clean the filter after every 6,000 km at an Authorised Piaggio Service
Centre. Empty the engine by draining the oil through drainage cap «C» with a cold
engine. First unscrew the cap-dipstick used to check engine oil level, then cap «C»
and take out the mesh filter. After cleaning and mounting again the mesh filter, screw
cap «C» and fill with oil the hole of the cap-dipstick used to check engine oil level.
Then start up the scooter, leave it running for a few minutes and switch it off: 5 minutes
later check oil level and, if necessary, add oil without exceeding the MAX level. Only
use new oil of the recommend type for oil top-ups and change.

Checking the brake oil level (03_18, 03_19)
The brake fluid reservoir is equipped with a sight glass «A» made of transparent material; the quantity of liquid contained in the sight glass indicates the level of liquid in
the reservoir.
When the sight glass «A» is full, the level inside the reservoir exceeds the MIN level;
when it is partially full, the level drops to the MIN level; when it is fully empty, the level
of fluid in the reservoir is below the MIN level.
03_18
The brake fluid level may fall due to wear on the brake pads. In case the pad wear is
below the minimum mark, contact an Authorised Service Centre to have the braking
system thoroughly checked. If you need to top up the level, follow the steps listed
below. Unscrew the 2 screws "B", remove the tank cap "C" and pour in the required
quantity of fluid (the brake fluid level must be above minimum). Place the handlebar
in the riding position and pay attention not to tilt the vehicle in order to keep the brake
fluid reservoir in horizontal position when checking the fluid level.
CAUTION
TOP UPS SHOULD ONLY BE CARRIED OUT WITH DOT 4 CLASSIFIED BRAKE
FLUID.

WARNING
IN NORMAL CLIMATIC CONDITIONS IT IS ADVISABLE TO REPLACE THE
ABOVE-MENTIONED FLUID EVERY 2 YEAR. NEVER USE BRAKE FLUID CONTAINED IN CONTAINERS WHICH ARE ALREADY OPEN OR PARTIALLY USED.
CAUTION
03_19
THE BRAKING CIRCUIT FLUID IS HIGHLY CORROSIVE. THEREFORE, WHEN
TOPPING IT UP, AVOID LETTING IT COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE PAINTED
PARTS OF THE VEHICLE. THE BRAKING CIRCUIT FLUID IS HYGROSCOPIC,
WHICH MEANS THAT IT ABSORBS MOISTURE FROM THE SURROUNDING AIR.
IF MOISTURE CONTAINED IN THE BRAKE FLUID EXCEEDS A CERTAIN VALUE,
THIS WILL RESULT IN INEFFICIENT BRAKING.

3 Maintenance
CAUTION
Long periods of inactivity
Battery performance will decrease if the vehicle is not used for a long time. This is the
result of the natural phenomenon of battery discharging plus residual absorption by
vehicle components with constant power consumption. Poor battery performance may
also be due to environmental conditions and the cleanness of the poles. In order to
avoid difficult starts and/or irreversible damage to the battery, follow any of these
steps:
- At least once a month start the engine and run it slightly above idle speed for 10-15
minutes. This keeps all the engine components, as well as the battery, in good working
order.
- Take your vehicle to a garage (as indicated in the "Vehicle not used for extended
periods" section) to have the battery removed. Have the battery cleaned, charged fully
and stored in a dry, ventilated place. Recharge at least once every two months.
N.B.
THE BATTERY MUST BE CHARGED WITH A CURRENT EQUAL TO 1/10 OF THE
RATED CAPACITY OF THE BATTERY AND FOR NOT LONGER THAN 10 HOURS.
CONTACT AN AUTHORISED SERVICE CENTRE TO CARRY OUT THIS OPERATION SAFELY. WHEN REFITTING THE BATTERY MAKE SURE THE LEADS ARE
CORRECTLY CONNECTED TO THE TERMINALS.

If adjustment is difficult, take your vehicle to a Dealer or an Authorised PIAGGIO
Service Centre to adjust CO to idle speed.
WARNING
IDLE SPEED MUST BE ADJUSTED WHEN THE ENGINE IS VERY HOT. BEFORE

The brake disc and pad wear is automatically compensated, therefore it has no effect
on the functioning of the front and rear brakes. For this reason it is not necessary to
adjust the brakes. An excessively elastic brake lever stroke may indicate the presence
of air in the braking circuit or an irregular brake operation. In this case, particularly
considering the importance of the brakes in terms of safety, it is strongly recommended
that you take the vehicle to an Authorised Service Centre as soon as possible for
the appropriate checks.
WARNING
03_31
CHECK BRAKE PADS FOR WEAR ON A REGULAR BASIS (AS INDICATED IN
THE SCHEDULE MAINTENANCE TABLES). IF THE THICKNESS OF ONE OR
BOTH PADS IS IN THE REGION OF 1.5 MM, BOTH PADS MUST BE CHANGED.
IT IS RECOMMENDED TO CARRY OUT THIS OPERATION AT AN AUTHORISED
SERVICE CENTRE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
AFTER FITTING NEW BRAKE PADS DO NOT USE THE VEHICLE UNTIL YOU
HAVE ACTIVATED THE BRAKE LEVER REPEATEDLY TO POSITION THE PADS
AND RESTORE THE LEVER STROKE TO ITS CORRECT POSITION.
CAUTION
THE BRAKING ACTION SHOULD BEGIN AFTER ABOUT 1/3 OF THE BRAKE
LEVER STROKE.

Operate adjustment nut «B» and loosen lock nut «A» shown in the figure. Note that
when the throttle is in idle the wheel should rotate free. After the adjustment, screw
lock nut «A».
CAUTION
03_32
THE BRAKING ACTION SHOULD BEGIN AFTER ABOUT 1/3 OF THE BRAKE
LEVER STROKE.
Puncture (03_33)
The vehicle is equipped with Tubeless tyres. When there is a puncture, Tubeless tyres
- unlike tyres with inner tubes - go flat very slowly. This offers greater riding safety. A
tyre that goes flat very slowly can be repaired with an "Inflate and Repair" spray. Tyres
should be later fully repaired or replaced at an Authorised Service Centre.
03_33
Periods of inactivity (03_34)
3 Maintenance
We recommend carrying out the following operations:
1. General cleaning of the vehicle.
2 - With the engine off and the piston at bottom dead centre position, remove the spark
plug and pour 1÷2 cc of motor oil through its hole. Operate the starter 3-4 times letting
the engine perform a few revolutions, then remount the spark plug.
3 - Drain up all the vehicle's fuel; spread antirust grease on the unpainted metal parts;
keep the wheels lifted above the ground.

Cleaning the vehicle
Use a low pressure jet of water to soften the caked dirt and mud deposited on the
painted surfaces. Once softened, sponge off mud and dirt using a car body sponge
soaked in a car body shampoo and water solution (2-4% of car shampoo in water).
Then rinse abundantly with water, and dry with a shammy cloth. For the outside of the
engine, use petroleum, a brush and clean cloths. Petrol can damage paintwork. Remember that any polishing with silicone wax must always be preceded by washing.
CAUTION
DETERGENTS POLLUTE WATER. THEREFORE THE VEHICLE SHOULD BE
WASHED IN AN AREA EQUIPPED FOR THE COLLECTION AND PURIFICATION
OF THE LIQUIDS USED.
WARNING
NEVER WASH THE VEHICLE UNDER DIRECT SUNLIGHT, ESPECIALLY IN SUMMER WHEN THE BODYWORK IS STILL HOT, AS THE CAR SHAMPOO MAY DRY
BEFORE BEING RINSED OFF, AND COULD DAMAGE THE PAINTWORK. NEVER
USE RAGS SOAKED IN PETROL OR DIESEL OIL TO CLEAN THE PAINTED OR
