OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
• The vehicle must be accompanied by: number-plate, registration document, tax
disc and insurance.
• Do not carry animals, pets or loose objects that can stick out from the vehicle.
• Riding without a crash helmet is forbidden.
• Always ride with the low beam on.
• Any modifications of the engine or other parts resulting in a power and/or speed
increase are punishable by severe sanctions including the confiscation of the vehicle.
• To protect your safety and that of others, always drive carefully and with your helmet
on.
WARNING
Any modifications and tampering with the vehicle during the warranty period exempt
the manufacturer from all responsibility and invalidate warranty.
ECOLOGIC GUIDE
• Every vehicle powered by an internal combustion engine produces an amount of
noise (noise pollution) and gases (air pollution) which varies with the riding style.
• The abatement of noise and air pollution levels is the duty of everybody. Avoid
full-throttle starts, sudden acceleration and abrupt braking. This will reduce noise
emission as well as the wear and tear of the tyres and mechanical parts, and will
also allow a considerable reduction in fuel consumption.

GB
RIDING SAFETY
• Observe the Highway Code.
• Always put on and fasten a homologated helmet.
• Always ride with the low beam on.
• Always keep the crash helmet visor clean.
• Avoid wearing garments with hanging ends.
• Do not keep sharp or brittle objects in your pockets while riding.
• Properly adjust the rearview mirrors.
• Always ride in a seated position, with both hands on the handlebars and both feet
on the footrests.
• Always pay attention and do not allow anything to distract you while riding.
• Do not eat, drink, smoke, use a mobile phone, etc. while riding.
• Do not wear headphones to listen to music while riding.
• Never ride abreast with other vehicles.
• Do not tow and avoid being towed by other vehicles.
• Always keep a safe distance from other vehicles.
• Do not sit on the vehicle when it is on its stand.
• Do not start off while the vehicle is on its stand.
• Do not pull out the stand when the vehicle is facing downhill.
• Avoid swaying and wheelies as they are extremely dangerous for your own and
other people’s safety as well as for your vehicle.
• Always apply both brakes on dry roads with no gravel and sand. Using one brake
may be dangerous and cause uncontrolled skidding.
• To reduce the braking distance, always apply both brakes.
• On wet roads and in off-road riding, drive with care and at moderate speed. Take
special care in applying the brakes.
• Do not start the engine in closed places.

FUEL VALVE
Fuel valve has three positions:
OFF: fuel supply closed. Fuel cannot pass
from the tank to the carburettor.
ON: fuel supply enabled. Fuel flows from
the tank to the carburettor. The tank empties
until it reaches the reserve level.
RES: reserve fuel supply. Fuel flows from
the tank to the carburettor and the tank
empties completely.
Attention!
During competition use or extreme “trial
zone” is advising to position the fuel tap on
“RES” to guarantee an optimal fuel supply
in all condition use.
STARTER
The starter lever is located on the carburettor.

CHECKS BEFORE AND AFTER USE
For safe driving and long vehicle life you should:
• Check all fluid levels.
• Check the correct operation of the brakes and brake pad wear (page 43).
• Check pressure, general condition and thickness of tread (page 10).
• Check that the spokes are properly tightened.
• Check the chain tension (page 54).
• Check the adjustment and the operation of all the cable controls.
• Inspect all the nuts and bolts.
• With the engine running, check the operation of the headlight, the rear and brake
lights, the indicators, the warning lights and the horn.
• Wash the motorcycle thoroughly after off-road use (page 44).
BREAKING IN
The breaking-in period lasts approximately 5 hours, during which it is advisable to:
• Avoid travelling at constant speed.
• Avoid turning the throttle more than 3/4 of the way.
WARNING:
After the first 5 hours to replace the gearbox oil.
This procedure should be followed each time piston, piston rings, cylinder, crankshaft or
crankshaft bearings are replaced.
24
FUELLING
Use a blend of high-octane unleaded
gasoline and synthetic oil at 1,5%.

CLEANING THE VEHICLE
WARNING: Do not clean your vehicle with a high-pressure device with a strong jet
of water. Excessive pressure can reach electrical components, connectors, flexible
cables, bearings, etc and can damage or destroy them.
CHECKS AND MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Wash motorbikes frequently that are used near the sea (salty air) and
on roads subject to salt spreading in winter. Cover with a film of oil or silicone spray
unpainted parts and the most exposed parts such as wheels, forks and swingarm.
Do not treat rubber parts and brakes.
When cleaning, avoid direct exposure to sunlight.
Close off the exhaust system to prevent water from entering.
Avoid directing the jet of water onto the air filter box cover.
Use water jet to soften the dirt and mud accumulated on the paintwork, then remove
them with a soft bodywork sponge soaked in water and shampoo. Subsequently
rinse well with water, and dry with air and cloth or suede leather.
Proceed to the emptying of the filter box using the appropriate ventilation and drying.
Detergents pollute water. Always wash the vehicle in areas equipped for collection
and purification of the washing liquids.
After cleaning, ride a short distance until the engine reaches operating temperature.
WARNING: braking effect is reduced with wet brakes. Operate the brakes cautiously to allow them to dry.
Push back the handlebar control covers, so that water can evaporate.
When the bike is completely dry and cooled down, lubricate all moving parts.
Treat all plastic and painted components with non-aggressive detergents or products
that are specific for the care of the motorcycle.
To prevent malfunction of the electrical system, treat electric contacts and switches
with electrical contact spray.
