MOTORCYCLE USE SAFETY
Please mind your safety and keep your motorcycle in sound
condition. You will be able to enjoy the motorcycle and its riding
properties.
It is necessary that you wear suitable protection when riding.
This Manual can provide you with many useful hints to help you
avoid potential risks.
Always wear safety helmet and suitable clothes:
Various researches and cases have proven that helmets ensure
significant reduction of the possibility of severe head injuries.
Therefore we are warning you to use a certified motorcycle helmet at any time. We also recommend the use of other protective
means as eye guard, protective motorcycle boots, gloves, suitable clothes and other safety guards for riders. You shall always
wear long trousers and a jacket or special motorcycle clothing.
Please advise any of your passengers about the same.
WARNING
Failure to use a protective motorcycle helmet increases the
risk of severe head injury or
death in case of accident.
6
WARNING
Both you and your passenger
shall always wear a protective
helmet, eye protection and
other protective means.
MOTORCYCLE USE SAFETY
Be visible:
Some drivers tend to overlook riders, as these are hard to spot.
You can make yourselves better visible by wearing contrast
clothes with reflexive means and ride in such manner that other
drivers can see you in reasonable time.
When turning and changing your travel direction, use turn signal lights. If you need to alert others, use the horn.
Do not overestimate your skills:
Exceeding limits is the main reason for motorcycle accidents.
Do not ever ride beyond your skill, the maximum performance
ability of your motorcycle, or excess speed in particular conditions. Do not force your motorcycle into a terrain. Be familiar
with vehicle controls and operation methods before riding. If
you are unsure about the controls or riding the motorcycle, ask
your Blata dealer for advice.
The above instructions will help you avoid any unnecessary accidents or injuries.
Do not drink alcohol before ride:
Remember that alcohol, drugs, fatigue, stress and loss of concentration have serious impact on your decision making ability,
response and the ability of safe driving. Never drink alcohol before or during the ride.
Keep your motorcycle in safe condition:
To ensure a safe ride, your motorcycle shall be checked before
every ride and subject to regular maintenance as prescribed.
Any alternative spare parts or unsuitable modifications and
poor maintenance may have significant impact on your safety.
Use only genuine Blata parts.
If your motorcycle has fallen or been through an accident, ask
your Blata dealer to check the main vehicle, even though you
might be able to perform some repairs on your own.

FIRST RIDE
Before you set off to your first ride, read the following important
advice and cautions.
Before you start the engine, make sure you have completed all
the above pre-ride check-ups.
Remember that the engine needs running in. For the first thousand kilometres, follow the instructions regarding the maximum
speed as outlined below:
1st gear - max. 30 km/h
2nd gear - max. 40 km/h
3rd gear - max. 55 km/h
4th gear - max. 70 km/h
5th gear - max. 80 km/h
6th gear - max. 90 km/h
Do not forget the first service inspection after 1.000 km.
Remember that tyres also need some kilometres to be run-in
and provide sufficient adhesion.
New brake shoe linings must be also subject to certain
running-in, remember that the first 200 kilometres can always
be associated with lower braking power.
The exhaust system and its proximity produce a lot of heat.
There is a risk of burns or ignition of easily combustible materials (clothes, luggage, paper, grass).
WARNING
Never touch the hot exhaust pipe
and prevent it from any contact
with combustible materials.
34
FIRST RIDE
The exhaust gases contain highly poisonous carbon oxide. This
gas is colourless and odourless and it may cause consciousness loss or even death when inhaled. Never let the engine run
within a closed area.
WARNING
Never leave the engine running
inside a closed area.
Never touch any part of the ignition system, when the engine is
running or with the ignition on. There is a risk of health or life
hazard.
WARNING
Never touch any part of the
ignition system when the engine is running or the ignition is
switched on.
To prevent damage to the catalytic converter:
- never use up all the petrol in your tank
- never push the motorcycle
- never ride at your engine threshold revolutions
- keep the maintenance intervals
- in case the engine starts misfiring, stop it immediately
The first ride should be intended to become familiar with the

39
BRAKING
Check the brakes for proper functioning before every ride.
Regular braking shall be done using both brakes - the pedal and
the lever - simultaneously. When riding on road, give preference
to the brake lever, i.e. the front brake. On the contrary when riding off road, the pedal brake shall be used primarily.
To ensure maximum braking effect, cut the throttle and press
onto both the pedal and lever thoroughly. Before coming to a
complete standstill, depress the clutch lever in order to prevent
the engine from stopping.
Caution! Very strong braking may result in wheels locking and
subsequent skid.
If possible, decelerate and brake before entering into turns already. Braking or rapid deceleration when passing through a turn
might result in skidding and falls.
When riding in wet or rainy conditions, or riding on a slippery surface, please adapt the motorcycle usage accordingly. Braking,
rapid acceleration or sudden turning of the motorcycle might render the motorcycle uncontrollable.
If you need to keep braking, e.g. when riding down a long hill, use
the motor brake combined with both mechanical brakes for better
effect and shifting down to lower gears.
NOTE:
After washing the motorcycle, after passing through wet environment, in rainy conditions of when riding on roads sprinkled with
road salt, the brake effect might appear with a slight delay.
When riding off the road or using strongly soiled roads, the fouling on brakes might impair their immediate effect.
Brake discs and brake pads must be always free of any oil or
grease residues.
40
RIDE WITH A PASSENGER / LOAD
Remember that when carrying a passenger or load will affect
the riding properties of your motorcycle. The difference with be
evident when accelerating, braking and passing through turns.
When carrying a passenger or load, never forget to adjust the
tyre pressure (page 30).
Never exceed the maximum permissible vehicle load.
WARNING
Carrying excessive loads or unsuitable distribution of the load
may result in accidents personal injury or even death.
Passenger’s handlebars:
Before riding, instruct your passenger about the use of safety
helmet and suitable clothes, footwear and other equipment.
Brief your passenger on proper behaviour during the ride.
41
CLEANING AND CONSERVATION
Correct and regular cleaning and conservation treatment can
help increase the life and safety of your motorcycle.
When using the motorcycle off the road, you are recommended
to clean the vehicle and apply conservation agents after every
ride.
NOTE:
Use only cleaning agents designed for cleaning of motorcycles
or passenger cars. Never use any aggressive or penetrative
agents or solvents. Never use any steam jet or high pressure water jet apparatus (installed in regular car wash units). When cleaning the board unit and controls avoid the use of any solvents
and cleaning agents. Any tar and bug residues shall be removed
with suitable special agents only. Never use any polishing wax
or abrasive and chemical-based polishing materials on plastic
parts. Beware to avoid any water spillage into the exhaust system
and electric installation.
42
CLEANING AND CONSERVATION
Motorcycle cleaning:
Set your motorcycle on side stand, supported with straight and
solid surface. This surface must remain solid even when soaked
up with water. Let the engine and exhaust system cool down
properly before cleaning. Rinse the motorcycle thoroughly with
cold water to remove the coarse dirt particles. Clean the wheels,
the engine block, the swing arm, bodywork parts and the frame
using a mild solution of special cleaning agent. Use a sponge or
a piece of cloth. Rinse the motorcycle with cold water again and
dry the wet surface carefully. Start the dry engine and let it run
about 2 minutes.
NOTE:
Once you have finished the washing, check brakes for proper
functioning. Their effect might be impaired temporarily.
Chain conservation:
Once the washing and drying has been finished, lubricate the
drive chain with special agent immediately, see the Regular Maintenance for details (page 58).
Road salt:
Some roads might be sprinkled with road salt based or sea salt
material. After completion of rides on such surfaces, rinse the
motorcycle with cold water immediately (lukewarm water would
boost the salt effect) and treat the metal parts using a special
wax-bases agent.
43
TEMPORARILY OUT OF OPERATION
Putting the motorcycle out of operation temporarily:
Clean the motorcycle and apply conservation agents (page
42). Remove the battery (page 69). The battery shall be stored
