Instructions for Storage
If the vehicle is not going to be used for a long period of time, for example,
in winter time, some steps should be taken to prevent malfunction of and
damage to its components which might be caused by long storage. Before
storing the vehicle for a long period , proper maintenance has to be carried in
case maintenance is not completed when the vehicle is put back into use after
storage.
1. Change engine oil and clean oil filter.
2. Drain off fuel from the fuel tank and carburetor, spray atomized anti-rust
oil onto the inside wall of the tank and then close the tank. Dispose of
any drained fuel properly so as not to adversely affect the environment.
Carburetor Drain
screw
Attention:
If the storage will last for more than one month, fuel in the carburetor
must be fully drained. This will help ensure that the carburetor maintains
its normal performance after the storage.
WARNING
Gasoline is flammable and may cause fire and even an explosion
under certain conditions. Therefore, do not smoke, make a fire or have
any fire around while draining off fuel.
3.
Take out the spark plug, pour about 15-20ml (.5 - .68 oz.) of clean engine
oil into the cylinder, step down on the kick lever repetitively several times
so as to have machine oil distributed all over the engine and finally fit the
spark plug back on.
Attention: The ignition switch must be set to “ ” (OFF) position before
stepping down on the kick lever. To protect the ignition system from
damage, the spark plug should be inserted in its cap and grounded.
4.
Wash the vehicle clean, wipe it dry and apply an even coat of wax to the
painted surface and a coat of anti-rust oil on the chrome-plated surfaces.
5.
Inflate the tires as required and put the vehicle up on wooden blocks with
the two wheels clearing the ground.
6.
Put the vehicle in a shady and cool place free from humidity and direct
sunlight and cover it properly (not with plastic or other painted materials).
If there is a garage, store it within.
28
Resumption of Service after Storage
1.
Remove the covering and remove the wooden blocks used in storing the
vehicle. Change the engine oil if the vehicle has been out of service for
over 4 months.
2.
Drain off the remaining atomized anti-rust oil from the fuel tank, followed
by filling it with fresh gasoline therein.
3.
Prior to driving, all the required check-ups must be made. It is better
to drive it at a low speed in an open area to test its performance before
normal operation.

As the vehicle owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required

performance of all scheduled maintenance or lack of maintenance records or
receipts. You are responsible for presenting your vehicle to an authorized dealer
as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a
reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
