SCOOTERS ARE SINGLE TRACK
VEHICLES. THEIR SAFE USE AND
OPERATION ARE DEPENDENT
UPON THE USE OF PROPER RIDING
TECHNIQUES AS WELL AS THE EXPERTISE OF THE OPERATOR. EVERY OPERATOR SHOULD KNOW
THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS
BEFORE RIDING THIS SCOOTER.
HE OR SHE SHOULD:
● OBTAIN THOROUGH INSTRUCTIONS FROM A COMPETENT
SOURCE ON ALL ASPECTS OF
SCOOTER OPERATION.
● OBSERVE THE WARNINGS AND
MAINTENANCE
REQUIREMENTS IN THE OWNER’S
MANUAL.
● OBTAIN QUALIFIED TRAINING IN
SAFE AND PROPER RIDING
TECHNIQUES.
● OBTAIN PROFESSIONAL TECHNICAL SERVICE AS INDICATED
BY THE OWNER’S MANUAL
AND/OR WHEN MADE NECESSARY BY MECHANICAL CONDITIONS.
EAU10220
Safe riding
● Always make pre-operation
checks. Careful checks may help
prevent an accident.
● This scooter is designed to carry
the operator and passenger.
● The failure of motorists to detect
and recognize scooters in traffic is
the predominating cause of automobile/scooter accidents. Many
accidents have been caused by an
automobile driver who did not see
the scooter. Making yourself conspicuous appears to be very effective in reducing the chance of this
type of accident.
Therefore:
• Wear a brightly colored jacket.
• Use extra caution when
approaching and passing
through intersections, since
intersections are the most likely
places for scooter accidents to
occur.
• Ride where other motorists can
see you. Avoid riding in another
motorist’s blind spot.
● Many accidents involve inexperi-
●
enced operators. In fact, many operators who have been involved in
accidents do not even have a current driver’s license.
• Make sure that you are qualified and that you only lend your
scooter to other qualified
operators.
• Know your skills and limits.
Staying within your limits may
help you to avoid an accident.
• We recommend that you
practice riding your scooter
where there is no traffic until
you have become thoroughly
familiar with the scooter and all
of its controls.
Many accidents have been caused
by error of the scooter operator. A
typical error made by the operator
is veering wide on a turn due to
EXCESSIVE
SPEED
or
undercornering (insufficient lean
angle for the speed).
• Always obey the speed limit
and never travel faster than
warranted by road and traffic
conditions.
• Always signal before turning or

changing lanes. Make sure that
other motorists can see you.
The posture of the operator and
passenger is important for proper
control.
• The operator should keep both
hands on the handlebar and
both feet on the footboard
during operation to maintain
control of the scooter.
• The passenger should always
hold onto the operator, the seat
strap or grab bar, if equipped,
with both hands and keep both
feet on the passenger footrests.
• Never carry a passenger
unless he or she can firmly
place both feet on the passenger footrests.
Never ride under the influence of
alcohol or other drugs.
This scooter is designed for onroad use only. It is not suitable for
off-road use.
Protective apparel
The majority of fatalities from scooter
accidents are the result of head inju-
ries. The use of a safety helmet is the
single most critical factor in the prevention or reduction of head injuries.
● Always wear an approved helmet.
● Wear a face shield or goggles. Wind
in your unprotected eyes could
contribute to an impairment of vision which could delay seeing a
hazard.
● The use of a jacket, substantial
shoes, trousers, gloves, etc., is effective in preventing or reducing
abrasions or lacerations.
● Never wear loose-fitting clothes,
otherwise they could catch on the
control levers or wheels and cause
injury or an accident.
● Never touch the engine or exhaust
system during or after operation.
They become very hot and can
cause burns. Always wear protective clothing that covers your legs,
ankles, and feet.
● Passengers should also observe
the above precautions.
Modifications
Modifications made to this scooter not
approved by Yamaha, or the removal of
original equipment, may render the
scooter unsafe for use and may cause
severe personal injury. Modifications
may also make your scooter illegal to
use.
Loading and accessories
Adding accessories or cargo to your
scooter can adversely affect stability
and handling if the weight distribution
of the scooter is changed. To avoid the
possibility of an accident, use extreme
caution when adding cargo or accessories to your scooter. Use extra care
when riding a scooter that has added
cargo or accessories. Here are some
general guidelines to follow if loading
cargo or adding accessories to your
scooter:
2
Loading
The total weight of the operator, passenger, accessories and cargo must not
exceed the maximum load limit.
8
Maximum load:
143 kg (315 lb)
When loading within this weight limit,

keep the following in mind:
● Cargo and accessory weight
should be kept as low and close to
the scooter as possible. Make sure
to distribute the weight as evenly
as possible on both sides of the
scooter to minimize imbalance or
instability.
● Shifting weights can create a sudden imbalance. Make sure that accessories and cargo are securely
attached to the scooter before
riding. Check accessory mounts
and cargo restraints frequently.
● Never attach any large or heavy
items to the handlebar, front fork,
or front fender. Such items can create unstable handling or a slow
steering response.
Accessories
Genuine Yamaha accessories have
been specifically designed for use on
this scooter. Since Yamaha cannot test
all other accessories that may be available, you must personally be responsible for the proper selection, installation and use of non-Yamaha accessories. Use extreme caution when select-
ing and installing any accessories.
Keep the following guidelines in mind,
as well as those provided under “Loading” when mounting accessories.
● Never install accessories or carry
cargo that would impair the performance of your scooter. Carefully
inspect the accessory before using it to make sure that it does not
in any way reduce ground clearance or cornering clearance, limit
suspension travel, steering travel
or control operation, or obscure
lights or reflectors.
• Accessories fitted to the
handlebar or the front fork area
can create instability due to
improper weight distribution or
aerodynamic changes. If
accessories are added to the
handlebar or front fork area,
they must be as lightweight as
possible and should be kept to
a minimum.
• Bulky or large accessories may
seriously affect the stability of
the scooter due to aerodynamic effects. Wind may
attempt to lift the scooter, or
●
the scooter may become
unstable in cross winds. These
accessories may also cause
instability when passing or
being passed by large vehicles.
• Certain accessories can
displace the operator from his
or her normal riding position.
This improper position limits
the freedom of movement of
the operator and may limit
control ability, therefore, such
accessories are not recommended.
Use caution when adding electrical accessories. If electrical accessories exceed the capacity of the
scooter’s electrical system an electric failure could result, which could
cause a dangerous loss of lights
or engine power.
Gasoline and exhaust gas
● GASOLINE IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE:
• Always turn the engine off
when refueling.
• Take care not to spill any
gasoline on the engine or

exhaust system when refueling.
• Never refuel while smoking or
in the vicinity of an open flame.
Never start the engine or let it run
for any length of time in a closed
area. The exhaust fumes are poisonous and may cause loss of consciousness and death within a
short time. Always operate your
scooter in an area that has adequate ventilation.
Always turn the engine off before
leaving the scooter unattended and
remove the key from the main
switch. When parking the scooter,
note the following:
• The engine and exhaust
system may be hot, therefore,
park the scooter in a place
where pedestrians or children
are not likely to touch these hot
areas.
• Do not park the scooter on a
slope or soft ground, otherwise
it may fall over.
• Do not park the scooter near a
flammable source (e.g., a
kerosene heater, or near an
●
open flame), otherwise it could
catch fire.
If you should swallow any gasoline,
inhale a lot of gasoline vapor, or
allow gasoline to get into your eyes,
see your doctor immediately. If any
gasoline spills on your skin or clothing, immediately wash the affected
area with soap and water and
change your clothes.

Braking can be extremely difficult
on a wet road. Avoid hard braking,
because the scooter could slide.
Apply the brakes slowly when stopping on a wet surface.
Slow down as you approach a corner or turn. Once you have completed a turn, accelerate slowly.
Be careful when passing parked
cars. A driver might not see you and
open a door in your path.
Railroad crossings, streetcar rails,
iron plates on road construction
sites, and manhole covers become
extremely slippery when wet. Slow
down and cross them with caution.
Keep the scooter upright, otherwise
it could slide out from under you.
The brake lining could get wet
when you wash the scooter. After
washing the scooter, check the
brakes before riding.
Always wear a helmet, gloves, trousers (tapered around the cuff and
ankle so they do not flap), and a
bright colored jacket.
Do not carry too much luggage on
the scooter. An overloaded scooter
is unstable. Use a strong cord to
secure any luggage to the carriers.
A loose load will affect the stability
of the scooter and could divert your
attention from the road. (See page
1-2.)

The condition of a vehicle is the owner’s responsibility. Vital components can start to deteriorate quickly and unexpectedly,
even if the vehicle remains unused (for example, as a result of exposure to the elements). Any damage, fluid leakage or loss
of tire air pressure could have serious consequences. Therefore, it is very important, in addition to a thorough visual
inspection, to check the following points before each ride.
NOTE:
Pre-operation checks should be made each time the vehicle is used. Such an inspection can be accomplished in a very
short time; and the added safety it assures is more than worth the time involved.

Engine break-in
There is never a more important period
in the life of your engine than the period
between 0 and 1000 km (600 mi). For
this reason, you should read the following material carefully.
Since the engine is brand new, do not
put an excessive load on it for the first
1000 km (600 mi). The various parts in
the engine wear and polish themselves
to the correct operating clearances.
During this period, prolonged full-throttle
operation or any condition that might
result in engine overheating must be
avoided.

The panel shown needs to be removed
to perform some of the maintenance
jobs described in this chapter. Refer to
this section each time the panel needs
to be removed and installed.
The spark plug is an important engine
component, which is easy to check.
Since heat and deposits will cause any
spark plug to slowly erode, the spark
plug should be removed and checked
in accordance with the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart. In addition, the condition of the spark plug can
reveal the condition of the engine.
To remove the spark plug

To check the spark plug
1. Check that the porcelain insulator
around the center electrode of the
spark plug is a medium-to-light tan
(the ideal color when the vehicle is
ridden normally).
NOTE:
If the spark plug shows a distinctly different color, the engine could be operating improperly. Do not attempt to diagnose such problems yourself. Instead, have a Yamaha dealer check the
vehicle.
2. Clean the surface of the spark plug
gasket and its mating surface, and
then wipe off any grime from the
spark plug threads.
3. Install the spark plug with the spark
plug wrench, and then tighten it to
the specified torque.
Tightening torque:
Spark plug:
20 Nm (2.0 m • kgf, 14.4 ft • lbf)
NOTE:
If a torque wrench is not available when
installing a spark plug, a good estimate
of the correct torque is 1/4 ~ 1/2 turn
past finger tight. However, the spark
plug should be tightened to the specified torque as soon as possible.

To maximize the performance, durability, and safe operation of your motorcycle, note the following points regarding the specified wheels.
● The wheel rims should be checked
for cracks, bends or warpage before each ride. If any damage is
found, have a Yamaha dealer replace the wheel. Do not attempt
even the smallest repair to the
wheel. A deformed or cracked
wheel must be replaced.
● The wheel should be balanced
whenever either the tire or wheel
has been changed or replaced. An
unbalanced wheel can result in
poor performance, adverse handling characteristics, and a shortened tire life.
● Ride at moderate speeds after
changing a tire since the tire surface must first be “broken in” for it

• Use only the recommended quality brake fluid, otherwise the rubber seals may deteriorate, causing
leakage and poor braking performance.

• Refill with the same type of brake
fluid. Mixing fluids may result in a
harmful chemical reaction and lead
to poor braking performance.
• Be careful that water does not enter the master cylinder when refilling. Water will significantly lower the
boiling point of the fluid and may
result in vapor lock.
• Brake fluid may deteriorate painted
surfaces or plastic parts. Always
clean up spilled fluid immediately.
• As the brake pads wear, it is normal for the brake fluid level to
gradually go down. However, if the
brake fluid level goes down suddenly, have a Yamaha dealer check

1. Battery
The battery is located behind panel A.
(See page 6-7.)
This model is equipped with a sealedtype (MF) battery, which does not require any maintenance. There is no
need to check the electrolyte or to add
distilled water.
●
ECA10620
cC
Never attempt to remove the battery
cell seals, as this would permanently
damage the battery.
●
Electrolyte is poisonous and
dangerous since it contains sulfuric acid, which causes severe
burns. Avoid any contact with
skin, eyes or clothing and always
shield your eyes when working
near batteries. In case of contact,
administer the following FIRST
AID.
• EXTERNAL: Flush with
plenty of water.
• INTERNAL: Drink large
quantities of water or milk
and immediately call a
physician.
• EYES: Flush with water for
15 minutes and seek prompt
medical attention.
Batteries produce explosive hydrogen gas. Therefore, keep
sparks, flames, cigarettes, etc.,
away from the battery and provide sufficient ventilation when
charging it in an enclosed space.
KEEP THIS AND ALL BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF
To charge the battery

Troubleshooting
Although Yamaha scooters receive a
thorough inspection before shipment
from the factory, trouble may occur during operation. Any problem in the fuel,
compression, or ignition systems, for
example, can cause poor starting and
loss of power.
The following troubleshooting chart represents a quick and easy procedure for
checking these vital systems yourself.
However, should your scooter require
any repair, take it to a Yamaha dealer,
whose skilled technicians have the necessary tools, experience, and knowhow to service the scooter properly.
Use only genuine Yamaha replacement
parts. Imitation parts may look like
Yamaha parts, but they are often inferior, have a shorter service life and can
lead to expensive repair bills.

axles. Always rinse the dirt and
degreaser off with water.
Care
While the open design of a scooter reveals the attractiveness of the technology, it also makes it more vulnerable.
Rust and corrosion can develop even if
high-quality components are used. A
rusty exhaust pipe may go unnoticed
on a car, however, it detracts from the
overall appearance of a scooter. Frequent and proper care does not only
comply with the terms of the warranty,
but it will also keep your scooter looking good, extend its life and optimize its
performance.
Before cleaning
1. Cover the muffler outlet with a plastic bag after the engine has cooled
down.
2. Make sure that all caps and covers as well as all electrical couplers
and connectors, including the
spark plug cap, are tightly installed.
3. Remove extremely stubborn dirt,
like oil burnt onto the crankcase,
with a degreasing agent and a
brush, but never apply such products onto seals, gaskets and wheel
●
Cleaning
ECA10781
cC
●
●
●
Avoid using strong acidic wheel
cleaners, especially on spoked
wheels. If such products are
used on hard-to-remove dirt, do
not leave the cleaner on the affected area any longer than instructed. Also, thoroughly rinse
the area off with water, immediately dry it, and then apply a corrosion protection spray.
Improper cleaning can damage
plastic parts such as cowlings,
panels, windshields, headlight
lenses, meter lenses, etc. Use
only a soft, clean cloth or sponge
with mild detergent and water to
clean plastic.
Do not use any harsh chemical
products on plastic parts. Be
sure to avoid using cloths or
sponges which have been in
contact with strong or abrasive
cleaning products, solvent or
●
thinner, fuel (gasoline), rust removers or inhibitors, brake fluid,
antifreeze or electrolyte.
Do not use high-pressure washers or steam-jet cleaners since
they cause water seepage and
deterioration in the following
areas: seals (of wheel and
swingarm bearings, fork and
brakes), electric components
(couplers, connectors, instruments, switches and lights),
breather hoses and vents.
For scooters equipped with a
windshield: Do not use strong
cleaners or hard sponges as
they will cause dulling or
scratching. Some cleaning compounds for plastic may leave
scratches on the windshield.
Test the product on a small hidden part of the windshield to
make sure that it does not leave
any marks. If the windshield is
scratched, use a quality plastic
polishing compound after washing.

After normal use
Remove dirt with warm water, a mild
detergent, and a soft, clean sponge, and
then rinse thoroughly with clean water.
Use a toothbrush or bottlebrush for
hard-to-reach areas. Stubborn dirt and
insects will come off more easily if the
area is covered with a wet cloth for a
few minutes before cleaning.
After riding in the rain, near the sea or
on salt-sprayed roads
Since sea salt or salt sprayed on the
roads during winter are extremely corrosive in combination with water, carry
out the following steps after each ride
in the rain, near the sea or on saltsprayed roads.
NOTE:
Salt sprayed on roads in the winter may
remain well into spring.
1. Clean the scooter with cold water
and a mild detergent after the engine has cooled down.
ECA10790
cC
Do not use warm water since it increases the corrosive action of the
salt.
5. Touch up minor paint damage
caused by stones, etc.
6. Wax all painted surfaces.
7. Let the scooter dry completely before storing or covering it.
EWA10940
2. Apply a corrosion protection spray
on all metal, including chrome- and
nickel-plated, surfaces to prevent
corrosion.
After cleaning
1. Dry the scooter with a chamois or
an absorbing cloth.
2. Use a chrome polish to shine
chrome, aluminum and stainlesssteel parts, including the exhaust
system. (Even the thermally induced discoloring of stainless-steel
exhaust systems can be removed
through polishing.)
3. To prevent corrosion, it is recommended to apply a corrosion protection spray on all metal, including chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces.
4. Use spray oil as a universal cleaner
to remove any remaining dirt.

●
●
Make sure that there is no oil or
wax on the brakes or tires. If necessary, clean the brake discs
and brake linings with a regular
brake disc cleaner or acetone,
and wash the tires with warm
water and a mild detergent.
Before operating the scooter
test its braking performance and
cornering behavior.

Storage
NOTE:
Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on
what products to use.
Short-term
Always store your scooter in a cool, dry
place and, if necessary, protect it
against dust with a porous cover.
ECA10820
cC
●
●
Storing the scooter in a poorly
ventilated room or covering it
with a tarp, while it is still wet,
will allow water and humidity to
seep in and cause rust.
To prevent corrosion, avoid
damp cellars, stables (because
of the presence of ammonia) and
areas where strong chemicals
are stored.
Long-term
Before storing your scooter for several
months:
1. Follow all the instructions in the
“Care” section of this chapter.
2. Drain the carburetor float chamber
by loosening the drain bolt; this will
prevent fuel deposits from building
up. Pour the drained fuel into the
fuel tank.
3. Fill up the fuel tank and add fuel
stabilizer (if available) to prevent the
fuel tank from rusting and the fuel
from deteriorating.
4. Perform the following steps to protect the cylinder, piston rings, etc.
from corrosion.
a. Remove the spark plug cap and
spark plug.
b. Pour a teaspoonful of engine oil
into the spark plug bore.
c. Install the spark plug cap onto
the spark plug, and then place
the spark plug on the cylinder
head so that the electrodes are
grounded. (This will limit sparking during the next step.)
d. Turn the engine over several
times with the starter. (This will
coat the cylinder wall with oil.)
e. Remove the spark plug cap from
the spark plug, and then install
the spark plug and the spark plug
cap.

6. Check and, if necessary, correct
the tire air pressure, and then lift
the scooter so that both of its
wheels are off the ground. Alternatively, turn the wheels a little every
month in order to prevent the tires
from becoming degraded in one
spot.
7. Cover the muffler outlet with a plastic bag to prevent moisture from entering it.
8. Remove the battery and fully
charge it. Store it in a cool, dry
place and charge it once a month.
Do not store the battery in an excessively cold or warm place [less
than 0 °C (30 °F) or more than 30
°C (90 °F)]. For more information
on storing the battery, see page 621.

Yamaha people who handle your warranty – and it
shows in the comprehensive coverage benefits. There
are no mileage limitations. Coverage isn’t limited to
“moving parts” or the “drive train” like many other plans.
And Y.E.S. covers manufacturing defects just like the
warranty. See the sample contract at your Yamaha
dealer to see how comforting uninterrupted factorybacked protection can be.
You don’t have to pay anything for covered repairs.
There’s no deductible to pay, and repairs aren’t
“pro-rated.” You don’t have any “out-of-pocket” expenses
for covered repairs.

Y.E.S. coverage is honored at any authorized Yamaha
dealer nationwide.
5
Y.E.S. coverage is transferable to a new owner if you
sell or trade-in. That can make your Yamaha much more
valuable!
6
This excellent Y.E.S. plan coverage is only available to
Yamaha owners like you, and only while your Yamaha is still
within the Yamaha Limited Warranty period. So visit your
authorized Yamaha dealer to get all the facts. He can show
you how easy it is to protect your investment with Yamaha
Extended Service.
