• Do not drive the scooter at a constant speed for long periods of time during the break-in period. Avoid overheating
the engine.
Riding the Scooter
ENTERING ROADWAYS
• Apply the turn signal if needed.
• Make sure there is no oncoming traffic. ALWAYS be aware of other vehicles on public roads. Many accidents are caused
when drivers of cars do not see scooters who share the road.
• Release the brake and gradually advance the throttle for smooth acceleration.
ACCELERATION AND DECELERATION
• Adjust speed by twisting the throttle. Twist the throttle toward you to accelerate. Twist the throttle away from you to
decelerate. NOTE: Your new scooter has an automatic transmission, so there is no clutch and no need to shift gears.
• ALWAYS allow the engine to warm up thoroughly before hard acceleration, or damage to the engine could occur.
BRAKING
WARNING
• ALWAYS apply the front and rear brakes simultaneously to slow down or come to a stop.
• BE CAUTIOUS when using the front brake. Loss of traction on the front wheel can make both steering and
braking ineffective. Using the front brake in loose gravel or wet road conditions can result in loss of traction.
• DO NOT continually engage the brakes for an extended period of time. This causes excessive wear and can
overheat the brakes, causing brake failure which could result in serious injury or death.
• In wet driving conditions, be aware that normal stopping distances are increased.
PARKING
NOTE: Always park on smooth, level ground.
• Turn the ignition key to the OFF
position. Remove the key.
• Move the engine stop switch to the OFF
position.
• Dismount the scooter and engage the center stand.
• DO NOT park on a slope or on soft surfaces. The scooter could tip over.
• DO NOT park near flammable materials.
• Engage the steering lock to prevent theft (see instructions on page 6).
10
Routine Care and Maintenance
WARNING
• When performing routine maintenance on the scooter, NEVER start or run the engine in an enclosed area,
even if the doors and/or windows are open. ALWAYS start and operate the scooter outdoors.
• Allow the engine, muffler and other hot parts to cool before touching.
• Conduct cleaning and maintenance using the center stand (see page 7) on a smooth, flat, hard surface.
WARNING
GASOLINE AND ITS VAPORS ARE EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE AND EXPLOSIVE AND CAN CAUSE SEVERE BURNS OR
DEATH.
• Keep gasoline away from open flames, sparks, pilot lights or other sources of ignition.
• NEVER smoke while refueling the scooter.
• Fill fuel tank outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.
• If fuel spills, DO NOT start engine until the spilled fuel has evaporated and vapors have dissipated.
• Make sure the fuel lines, tank and cap do not have cracks or leaks.
• NEVER start or operate the scooter near gasoline, paint thinner, or any other flammable liquids. Vapors could
ignite causing a fire or explosion.
• If you swallow gasoline, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If you inhale gasoline vapor and feel ill, or spill gasoline into
your eyes, see a physician immediately.
• If you spill gasoline on your skin or clothing, change clothing and wash your skin with soap and water.
REFUELING
THIS SCOOTER HAS A 4-STROKE ENGINE AND REQUIRES UNLEADED 90 OCTANE OR HIGHER GASOLINE, WITHOUT
METHANOL ADDITIVES.
• Turn the engine OFF
and allow the engine to cool at least two (2) minutes before removing the fuel cap.
• The fuel cap is located at the rear of the scooter, behind the seat. To unlock the fuel cap, insert the ignition key and turn
to the left (counter-clockwise). Remove the cap to add fuel.
• Use UNLEADED 90 octane or higher gasoline without Methanol additives only. The tank holds 1.32 gallons (5 liters)
of fuel.
• DO NOT overfill the fuel tank. Fill tank to about 1.5 inches below the top of the tank to allow for fuel expansion.
• Wipe up spills immediately. Gasoline may damage paint and plastic parts. Do not start the engine until the spilled fuel
evaporates and the vapors have dissipated.
• NEVER add anything to the gasoline in the fuel tank.
• Replace the fuel cap securely.
TIRE MAINTENANCE
WARNING
• DO NOT over-inflate the tire or underinflate the tires. The tires could slip off the wheel rims during braking,
causing the scooter to become unstable and turn over in a curve.
• To check the tire pressure, remove the cap from the valve stem and set aside. Use a tire pressure gauge to measure the air
pressure in the tires. The correct pressure for the front tire is 26 PSI, and for the rear tire is 29 PSI.
• Inspect the rims. If the rims are cracked or bent do not ride the scooter. They must be replaced.
• Check the tires for wear and damage. If you notice cuts, punctures or excessively worn tread, the tire needs to be
replaced. Contact your dealer for replacement parts and service.

REAR DRUM BRAKE
• As the drum brake shoe linings wear, freeplay in the brake lever will increase. Each
time the brake adjustment nut is tightened to decrease freeplay in the brake lever,
the brake wear indicator will move to a position closer to the minus (–) sign (Fig. 3).
• The indicator should never reach the minus sign. Brake shoes should be
inspected and replaced by a QUALIFIED MECHANIC before the indicator reaches
the minus sign. The brake shoe must be replaced before the lining reaches the
minimum allowed thickness of 0.06" (1.5 mm). The brake drum must never
measure larger than 3.892" (99.0 mm) in diameter.
Time to replace
brake shoe
CHECK FRONT DISC BRAKE FLUID LEVEL
• Locate the front brake master cylinder under the housing near the right handlebar
(Fig. 4). If the fluid level in the window is at or below the low-level mark, take the
scooter to your dealer for service.

CHECK FRONT DISC BRAKE PAD WEAR
• As the disc brake pads wear, the depth of the notches in the disc brake pads will
decrease (Fig. 5). NOTE: The disc rotor has been removed for clarity in Fig. 5.
The disc rotor is shown in place in Fig. 5a.
• Never allow the notches to wear away completely. Brake pads should be
inspected and replaced by a QUALIFIED MECHANIC while the notches are still
visible. The brake pads must be replaced before the pads reach the minimum
allowed thickness of 0.072" (1.85 mm). The minimum allowed thickness for the
disc rotor is 0.118" (3.0 mm).
WARNING
• Never allow the front disc brake notches to wear away completely.
• Never allow the rear drum brake pad indicator to reach the minus sign.

screwdriver, remove the screws from the battery door in the floor board.
Set aside the hardware. Open the battery door.
Negative
Terminal
Positive
Terminal
Fuse
Box
• Visually inspect the battery, its cables and terminals for damage.
• If you see corrosion on the battery terminals, they will need to
be cleaned.
• NEVER pick up the battery by its cables or connectors.
• Pull the terminal covers back to expose both battery terminals. Using a
Phillips screwdriver or wrench, disconnect the negative (black) cable from the battery terminal first, then disconnect the
positive (red) cable from the battery terminal (Fig 1). When removing the cables from the battery, make sure they do not
come in contact with each other.
• Lift the battery up and out of the compartment. Handle the battery carefully.
• Gently clean the posts with a wire brush.
• Wipe the posts clean with a damp cloth (a dry cloth may cause static electricity).
• Lower the battery into the compartment.
• Reconnect the positive (red) cable to the positive terminal. Reconnect the negative (black) cable to the negative terminal.
When re-connecting the cables to the battery, make sure they do not come in contact with each other.
• Replace the terminal covers.
• Replace the battery door, and secure it with the screws.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
• The scooter battery will need to be replaced if:
- The battery has completely discharged.
- The battery has leaked.
- The battery casing is cracked or damaged.
• Contact your dealer to purchase a new battery. Use of an unauthorized battery will void the warranty.
• Follow the instructions above for accessing and removing the battery.
• Lower the new battery into the compartment.
• Reconnect the positive (red) cable to the positive terminal. Reconnect the negative (black) cable to the negative terminal.
• Replace the battery door, and secure it with the screws.
BATTERY DISPOSAL
• NEVER throw the battery away in the trash or burn it in a fire. In most areas, it is illegal to
burn lead acid batteries or put them in a landfill.
• Take the exhausted battery to an approved lead acid battery recycle center, such as an

REPLACING THE FUSE
1
Fuse Case
• If the electrical system is not working properly, a fuse may have blown.
• Turn the ignition OFF
.
• Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws from the battery door found in
the floor board. Set aside the hardware. Open the battery door.
• Locate and open the fuse case. You will see two fuses, one is in use, and the other
is a spare.
• Inspect the fuse for broken wires.
• If you find a blown fuse, remove it. Insert a new fuse, making sure it fits snugly
into the socket. A loose connection will cause electrical problems, and possibly
overheat the fuse contacts.
• ALWAYS replace the fuse with a new fuse of the same amperage rating. DO NOT replace it with a fuse of higher
amperage rating. Extensive damage to the electrical system could occur.
• Close the fuse case and place the fuse and battery cables completely inside the battery compartment. Make sure the
terminal covers are in place. Replace the battery door and secure it with the screws.
• If the new fuse blows out immediately, contact your dealer for repairs.
CLEANING OR REPLACING THE AIR FILTER
2
• Check the air filter after 600 miles (960 kilometers); then again every 2,500
miles (4,000 kilometers) or 6 months.
• The air filter may become clogged with dirt and dust, causing a decrease in
engine power. Keep the air filter clean for optimal scooter performance.
NOTE: If you live in a coastal or arid area or drive on dirt or gravel roads, you
may need to clean or replace the air filter more frequently.
• Look on the left side of the scooter and locate the air filter cover. Using a
Phillips screwdriver, remove the filter cover screws (Fig. 2) and set aside.
• Remove the cover (Fig. 3) to expose the air filter. Gently remove the air filter;
be careful not to tear it.
• Shake the air filter vigorously to remove dust and debris. NEVER use water to
clean the air filter.
• Inspect the air filter. If it is damaged, it must be replaced. Contact your dealer
to obtain a new filter.
• If the air filter is clean and reusable, carefully press the air filter back into place.
Replace the cover and secure the filter cover screws. NOTE: Make sure the
filter and cover fit together properly before tightening the screws. Gaps may
cause the engine to run improperly.
REPLACING THE SPARK PLUG
• If the scooter is hard to start, it may be necessary to clean or replace
the spark plug or adjust the electrode gap. Replace it with an A7RTC
spark plug only. NOTE: Correct gap for the spark plug is 0.024” to
.032” (0.6 to 0.8 mm). Incorrect gap can cause damage to the
scooter’s engine.
• Allow the engine to cool before changing the spark plug.
• Remove the screw and access panel located below the front edge of
the seat (Fig. 4).
• Pull the spark plug cover off the spark plug (Figs. 5 and 6). Use a
spark plug socket wrench to remove the spark plug from the
cylinder (Fig. 7).
• Insert the new spark plug into the cylinder and tighten firmly by
hand. Use the spark plug socket wrench and tighten another 1/2
to 3/4 turn.
• Replace the spark plug cover securely over the spark plug. Replace
the access panel and secure it with the screw.
