GIVE SAFETY THE RIGHT OF WAY
Scooters are fascinating vehicles, which can give you an unsurpassed feeling of power and freedom. However,
they also impose certain limits, which you must accept; even the best scooter does not ignore the laws of
physics.
1
Regular care and maintenance are essential for preserving value and operating condition of your scooter.
Moreover, what is true for the scooter is also true for the rider: good performance depends on being in good
shape. Riding under the influence of medication, drugs and alcohol is, of course, out of the question. Scooter
riders — more than car drivers — must always be at their mental and physical best. Under the influence of
even small amounts of alcohol, there is a tendency to take dangerous risks.
Protective clothing is as essential for the scooter rider as seat belts are for car drivers and passengers.
Always wear a complete scooter suit (whether made of leather or tear-resistant synthetic materials with
protectors), sturdy boots, scooter gloves and a properly fitting helmet. Optimum protective wear, however,
should not encourage carelessness. Although full-coverage helmets and suits, in particular, create an illusion of total safety and protection, motorcyclists will always be vulnerable. Riders who lack critical selfcontrol run the risk of going too fast and are apt to take chances. This is even more dangerous in wet
weather. The good motorcyclist rides safely, predictably and defensively — avoiding all dangers, including
those caused by others.
Enjoy your ride!

Be 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 pads 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.

PRE-OPERATION CHECKS
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.

Tips for reducing fuel
consumption
Fuel consumption depends largely on
your riding style. Consider the following
tips to reduce fuel consumption:
Thoroughly warm up the engine.
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).

Engine break-in
There is never a more important period
in the life of your engine than the period
between 0 and 1,000 km. 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
1,000 km. The various parts in the
engine wear and polish themselves to
the correct operating clearances.
During this period, prolonged fullthrottle operation or any condition that
might result in engine overheating must
be avoided.
150 - 500 km
Avoid prolonged operation above 1/2
throttle.
500 - 1,000 km
Avoid cruising speeds in excess of 3/4
throttle.
ECAT0001*
After 1,000 km of operation, be sure
to replace the final transmission oil.

1,000 km and beyond
Avoid prolonged full throttle operation.
Vary speeds occasionally.
EAUT0003*
0 - 150 km
Avoid operation above 1/3 throttle. Stop
the engine and let it cool for 5 to 10
minutes after every hour of operation.
Vary the speed of the scooter from time
to time. Do not operate it at one set
throttle position.

EAU01651
Checking the spark plug
6
The spark plug is an important engine
component, which should be checked
periodically, preferably by a Yamaha
dealer. Since heat and deposits will
cause any spark plug to slowly erode,
it 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.
The porcelain insulator around the
center electrode of the spark plug
should be a medium-to-light tan (the
ideal color when the scooter is ridden
normally). If the spark plug shows a
distinctly different color, the engine
could be defective. Do not attempt to
diagnose such problems yourself.
Instead, have a Yamaha dealer check
the scooter.
If the spark plug shows signs of
electrode erosion and excessive
carbon or other deposits, it should be
replaced.
Specified spark plug:
BR8HS (NGK)
or BR9HS (NGK)
Before installing a spark plug, the spark
plug gap should be measured with a
wire thickness gauge and, if necessary,
adjusted to specification.
Spark plug gap:
0.5 - 0.7 mm

Clean the surface of the spark plug
gasket and its mating surface, and then
wipe off any grime from the spark plug
threads.

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.

regarding the specified tires.
Tire air pressure
The tire air pressure should be checked
and, if necessary, adjusted before each
ride.
EW000082
EW000077
The tire air pressure must be
checked and adjusted on cold
tires (i.e., when the temperature
of the tires equals the ambient
temperature).
The tire air pressure must be
adjusted in accordance with the
riding speed and with the total
weight of rider, passenger,
cargo, and accessories
approved for this model.
Because loading has an enormous
impact on the handling, braking, performance and safety characteristics of
your scooter, you should keep the
following precautions in mind.
NEVER OVERLOAD THE SCOOTER! Operation of an overloaded
scooter may result in tire damage,
loss of control, or severe injury.
Make sure that the total weight of
rider, cargo, and accessories
does not exceed the specified
maximum load for the vehicle.
Do not carry along loosely packed
items, which can shift during a
ride.
Securely pack the heaviest items
close to the center of the scooter
and distribute the weight evenly
on both sides.
Adjust the suspension and tire air
pressure with regard to the load.

Cast wheels
To maximize the performance,
durability, and safe operation of your
scooter, 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

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 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.

SCOOTER CARE AND STORAGE
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 axles. Always rinse the dirt
and degreaser off with water.
Cleaning
ECA00011
•
•
7
•
7-1
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
windshields, cowlings, panels
and other plastic parts. 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.
SCOOTER CARE AND STORAGE
•
•
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.
7-2
1. Clean the scooter with cold water
and a mild detergent after the
engine has cooled down.
ECA00012
Do not use warm water since it
increases the corrosive action of the
salt.
2. Apply a corrosion protection spray
on all metal, including chromeand nickel-plated, surfaces to
prevent corrosion.

SCOOTER CARE AND STORAGE
7
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 stainlesssteel 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 nickelplated, surfaces.
4. Use spray oil as a universal
cleaner to remove any remaining
dirt.
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.
EWA00002
•
•
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.
ECA00013
•
•
•
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
away the paint.
7-3
NOTE :
Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on
what products to use.
SCOOTER CARE AND STORAGE
Storage
Short-term
Always store your scooter in a cool, dry
place and, if necessary, protect it
against dust with a porous cover.
ECA00015
•
•
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.)
7-4
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.
EWA00003
To prevent damage or injury from
sparking, make sure to ground the
spark plug electrodes while turning
the engine over.
5. Lubricate all control cables and
the pivoting points of all levers and
pedals as well as of the sidestand/
centerstand.
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
SCOOTER CARE AND STORAGE
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 or more than 30
°C). For more information on
storing the battery, see page 6-19.
NOTE :
Make any necessary repairs before
storing the scooter.
