Be a Responsible Owner
As the vehicle’s owner, you are responsible for the safe and proper operation
of your scooter.
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 this Owner’s
Manual.
● Obtain qualified training in safe and
proper riding techniques.
● Obtain professional technical service as indicated in this Owner’s
Manual and/or when made necessary by mechanical conditions.
Safe Riding
Perform the pre-operation checks each
time you use the vehicle to make sure
it is in safe operating condition. Failure
to inspect or maintain the vehicle properly increases the possibility of an accident or equipment damage. See page
4-2 for a list of pre-operation checks.
● This scooter is designed to carry
the operator and a 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 you are
approaching and passing
through intersections, since
1-8
1-1
●
●
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 inexperienced 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
EAU10221
Q SAFETY INFORMATION
●
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 operator
footrests 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 on-road
use only. It is not suitable for offroad use.
Protective apparel
The majority of fatalities from scooter
accidents are the result of head injuries.
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
that 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
1-9
1-2
●
●
control levers or wheels and cause
injury or an accident.
Always wear protective clothing
that covers your legs, ankles, and
feet. The engine or exhaust system
become very hot during or after
operation and can cause burns.
A passenger should also observe
the above precautions.
Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
All engine exhaust contains carbon
monoxide, a deadly gas. Breathing carbon monoxide can cause headaches,
dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, confusion, and eventually death.
Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas which may be
present even if you do not see or smell
any engine exhaust. Deadly levels of
carbon monoxide can collect rapidly and
you can quickly be overcome and unable to save yourself. Also, deadly levels of carbon monoxide can linger for
hours or days in enclosed or poorly ventilated areas. If you experience any

symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, leave the area immediately, get
fresh air, and SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT.
● Do not run engine indoors. Even if
you try to ventilate engine exhaust
with fans or open windows and
doors, carbon monoxide can rapidly reach dangerous levels.
● Do not run engine in poorly ventilated or partially enclosed areas
such as barns, garages, or carports.
● Do not run engine outdoors where
engine exhaust can be drawn into
a building through openings such
as windows and doors.

Loading
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, along with the information about accessories below, are
some general guidelines to follow if loading cargo to your scooter:
The total weight of the operator, passenger, accessories and cargo must
not exceed the maximum load limit.
Operation of an overloaded vehicle
could cause an accident.
Maximum load:
177 kg (390 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. Securely pack
your heaviest items as close to the
center of the vehicle as possible
and make sure to distribute the
weight as evenly as possible on
both sides of the scooter to minimize imbalance or instability.
1-10
1-3
●
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.
• Properly adjust the suspension
for your load (suspensionadjustable models only), and
check the condition and
pressure of your tires.
• 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.
This vehicle is not designed to
pull a trailer or to be attached to
a sidecar.
Genuine Yamaha Accessories
Choosing accessories for your vehicle
is an important decision. Genuine
Yamaha accessories, which are avail-
EAU10221
Q SAFETY INFORMATION
able only from a Yamaha dealer, have
been designed, tested, and approved by
Yamaha for use on your vehicle.
Many companies with no connection to
Yamaha manufacture parts and accessories or offer other modifications for
Yamaha vehicles. Yamaha is not in a
position to test the products that these
aftermarket companies produce. Therefore, Yamaha can neither endorse nor
recommend the use of accessories not
sold by Yamaha or modifications not
specifically recommended by Yamaha,
even if sold and installed by a Yamaha
dealer.
Aftermarket Parts, Accessories, and
Modifications
While you may find aftermarket products
similar in design and quality to genuine
Yamaha accessories, recognize that
some aftermarket accessories or modifications are not suitable because of
potential safety hazards to you or others. Installing aftermarket products or
having other modifications performed to
your vehicle that change any of the
vehicle’s design or operation characteristics can put you and others at greater
risk of serious injury or death. You are
responsible for injuries related to
changes in the vehicle.
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,
1-11
1-4
●
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 elec-

Aftermarket Tires and Rims
The tires and rims that came with your
scooter were designed to match the
performance capabilities and to provide
the best combination of handling, braking, and comfort. Other tires, rims, sizes,
and combinations may not be appropriate. Refer to page 6-12 for tire specifications and more information on replacing your tires.

Make sure to signal clearly when
making turns.
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

Gasoline and gasoline vapors are
extremely flammable. To avoid fires
and explosions and to reduce the
risk of injury when refueling, follow
these instructions.
1. Before refueling, turn off the engine
and be sure that no one is sitting
on the vehicle. Never refuel while
smoking, or while in the vicinity of
sparks, open flames, or other
sources of ignition such as the pilot lights of water heaters and
clothes dryers.
2. Do not overfill the fuel tank. Stop
filling when the fuel reaches the
bottom of the filler tube. Because
fuel expands when it heats up, heat
from the engine or the sun can
cause fuel to spill out of the fuel
tank.
3. Wipe up any spilled fuel immediately. NOTICE: Immediately wipe
off spilled fuel with a clean, dry,
soft cloth, since fuel may deteriorate painted surfaces or plastic parts.[ECA10071]
4. Be sure to securely close the fuel
tank cap.

may skid or overturn.
Railroad crossings, streetcar
rails, iron plates on road construction sites, and manhole
covers become extremely slippery when wet. Therefore, slow
down when approaching such
areas and cross them with caution.
Keep in mind that braking on a
wet road is much more difficult.
Ride slowly down a hill, as braking downhill can be very difficult.

Fuel consumption depends largely on
your riding style. Consider the following
tips to reduce fuel consumption:
● Avoid high engine speeds during
acceleration.
● Avoid high engine speeds with no
load on the engine.
● Turn the engine off instead of letting it idle for an extended length
of time (e.g., in traffic jams, at traffic lights or at railroad crossings).
EAU16830
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.
EAU16951
0 ~ 150 km (0 ~ 90 mi)
Avoid prolonged operation above 1/3
throttle.
After every hour of operation, stop the
engine, and then let it cool for five to
ten minutes.
5-34
5-3
Vary the engine speed from time to time.
Do not operate the engine at one set
throttle position.
150 ~ 500 km (90 ~ 300 mi)
Avoid prolonged operation above 1/2
throttle.
Rev the engine freely through the gears,
but do not use full throttle at any time.
500 ~ 1000 km (300 ~ 600 mi)
Avoid prolonged operation above 3/4
throttle. NOTICE: After 1000 km (600
mi) of operation, the engine oil must
be changed and the oil strainer
cleaned.[ECA10351]
1000 km (600 mi) and beyond
Avoid prolonged full-throttle operation.
Vary the speed occasionally.

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.

Cast wheels
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
to develop its optimal characteristics.

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 charts represent quick and easy procedures 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 know-how 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.

Care
ECA15192
NOTICE
Some models are equipped with
matte colored finished parts. Be sure
to consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on what products to use before
cleaning the vehicle.
Using a brush, harsh chemical products or cleaning compounds when
cleaning these parts will scratch or
damage their surface. Wax also
should not be applied to any matte
colored finished parts.
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 prod-

Cleaning
ECA10782
NOTICE
●
●
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.) and
the mufflers. Use only a soft,
clean cloth or sponge with water
to clean plastic. However, if the
plastic parts cannot be thoroughly cleaned with water, di-

luted mild detergent with water
may be used. Be sure to rinse off
any detergent residue using
plenty of water, as it is harmful
to plastic parts.
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 hardto-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

roads during winter are extremely corro-

sive in combination with water, carry out
the following steps after each ride in the
rain, near the sea or on salt-sprayed
roads.
TIP
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. NOTICE: Do
not use warm water since it increases the corrosive action of
the salt.[ECA10791]
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

system. (Even the thermally induced discoloring of stainless-steel
exhaust systems can be removed
through polishing.)
To prevent corrosion, it is recommended to apply a corrosion protection spray on all metal, including chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces.
Use spray oil as a universal cleaner
to remove any remaining dirt.
Touch up minor paint damage
caused by stones, etc.
Wax all painted surfaces.
Let the scooter dry completely before storing or covering it.

WARNING
Contaminants on the brakes or tires
can cause loss of control.
● 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.
Apply spray oil and wax sparingly and make sure to wipe off
any excess.
Never apply oil or wax to any rubber and plastic parts, but treat
them with a suitable care product.
Avoid using abrasive polishing
compounds as they will wear

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. Fill up the fuel tank and add fuel
stabilizer (if available) to prevent the
fuel tank from rusting and the fuel
from deteriorating.
3. 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. WARNING! To prevent damage or injury from sparking,
make sure to ground the spark

Lubricate all control cables and the
pivoting points of all levers and
pedals as well as of the sidestand/
centerstand.
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.
Cover the muffler outlet with a plastic bag to prevent moisture from entering it.
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 6-19.
