mirror from turning. Loosen the installation nut
when adjusting the mirror position & retighten
Fig. 1
Mirror Adjustment
The side mirrors have two methods of adjustment. They can be adjusted either left & right
or up & down. Use a wrench to loosen the
adjustment nut. (See Fig 1)
While sitting on the scooter, look into the side
mirror and adjust the mirror stem until you see
a clear view of what’s behind the scooter.
Now retighten the adjustment nut.
To adjust the mirrors up & down, locate the
screws which tighten the hand controls on the
handlebars. (See Fig. 2)
Fig. 2
Adding 2-cycle Mixing Oil
Whenever the red “Low Mixing Oil” warning
lamp turns on, you should add mixing oil as soon
as possible. Open the mixing oil cover on the
right side of the scooter and refill the mixing oil
tank with a high quality 2-stroke oil such as
Opti-2. This will protect the engine’s moving
parts and ensure that you will receive the most
power from the engine as well as the longest
engine life. Opti-2 can be found at your local
Twist N’ Go Dealer.
WARNING! Do NOT add any oil to engine
transmission when red oil light turns on.
Adding Fuel
Note: Turn the engine off when refuelling
„ Remove all source of flame from the area when refuelling.
„ Unlock and lift seat, remove cap and add fuel. Capacity is approximately
1.5 gallons.
„ DO NOT pre-mix oil with fuel. Oil will be added automatically during
operation provided the oil reservoir has 2-cycle oil in it.
„ After fuel is filled, replace cap making sure it is tight and threaded

Adjusting the Brakes
Rear Brake Adjustment
„ Park the scooter on its center stand on a
flat surface.
„ Check the rear brake free play by
measuring how far the tip of the brake
lever will move until it begins to resist
further movement. (See Figs 11 & 12)
Brake lever at rest. (See Fig. 11)
Fig. 11
Brake lever travels between 10 & 20 mms
from rest until resistance is felt. (See Fig 12)
Here the lever has been squeezed to the
point of resistance which is approximately 15
millimeters from where it was at rest.
Fig. 12
Use a 14 mm wrench to adjust the brake
adjustment nut on the wheel until the brake
lever free play is between 10 to 20 mm.
(See Fig 13)
Fig. 13
When turning the brake adjustment nut, make
sure that the nut rests in the correct position
when you remove the wrench. The concave
surface of the nut must rest flush against the
pivot pin. (See Fig 14)
Make sure that the brake adjustment nut does
not look like Fig 15! This brake has been
adjusted incorrectly.
The scooter is not safe to ride if the adjustment
nut is not positioned correctly!
Check the rear wheel for drag without the
rear brake being applied. If there is any
drag, loosen the adjustment nut. If there is
too much free play in the rear brake lever,
then the adjustment nut will need tightening.
Fig. 14
Note: Adjust the nut only 1/2 turn and
then recheck the brake operation.
Starting the Engine for the First Time
„ Turn the ignition switch to the “ON”
position, apply the rear brake with the
Fig. 15
left hand lever and set the stop switch to
the “run” position (see page 8).
„ Look to see that the scooter lights are operating. This will verify that you
have installed the battery correctly.
„ Use your foot to extend the kick start lever.
„ Quickly press down on the kick start lever with your foot. Immediately
remove your foot from the kick start lever so that it can spring back into
position. If the engine doesn’t start the first time, repeat the procedure.
The engine may require many kicks to move the fuel into the engine for the
very first time. When the engine starts, apply enough throttle to keep the
engine at an idle for 20 to 30 seconds.
„ Retract the kick start lever back to its original position.
Brake Freeplay
When applying a gentle pressure on the front & rear brake levers, check the
freeplay measured at the lever tip. The freeplay should be between 10 and 20
mm. (See Page 10)
Tire pressure should be checked frequently. The cold tire pressures are as
follows: Front 25 PSI Rear 30 PSI Tires should be regularly checked for
damage to the rim as well as damage to the tire itself. Look for any cuts,
embedded nails, or other sharp objects. Check for excessive wear as well. If
there is damage to the rim, the rim may have to be repaired and rebalanced
afterwards. The tire pressure should be checked prior to riding the scooter.
Always check to be sure that you have enough fuel for your trip.
After starting the engine, check for proper operation of the headlight and
taillight. Operate the turn signals and horn. Check them to be sure that they
are functioning correctly.
Apply both the front & rear brakes and check that they are working correctly.
Also check the brake light for proper operation.
Rear-View Mirrors
Check the rearview mirrors for alignment & damage. Also be sure that they
are clean for the best view.
Check the reflectors to make sure that they are clean & well secured to the
scooter body.
Starting the Engine (cold)
„ Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.
„ Hold the rear brake lever to apply rear brake.
„ Set the stop switch to the “run” position (page 8).
„ Do not open the throttle with your right hand.
„ Press the starter button.
„ When the engine starts release the starter button.
„ Do not press the starter button for more than five seconds.
„ If the scooter doesn’t start, wait
another ten seconds and repeat
the start procedure.
„ If the scooter will not start after
three tries, roll on 1/8 to 1/4
throttle (after freeplay) & repeat
the start procedure.
Starting the Engine (warm)
„ Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.
„ Apply the rear brake.
„ Set the stop switch to the “run” position (page 8).
„ Press the starter button or use the kick starter.
Kick-Starting the Engine
„ Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position & apply the rear brake.
„ Use your foot to extend the kick start lever.
„ Quickly press down on the kick start lever with your foot. Immediately
remove your foot from the kick start lever so that it can spring back up
into position. If the engine doesn’t start the first time, repeat the procedure. The engine may require several kicks to move the fuel into the
engine if the engine hasn’t been run for a few days. When the engine
starts, apply enough throttle to keep the engine at an idle for 20 to 30
„ Retract the kick start lever back to its original position.
Pulling Away From the Curb
„ Put on your left turn signal before pulling away from the curb. Look over
both shoulders to be sure than no vehicles are passing you and that it is
safe to pull into the traffic. Release the rear brake, and slowly roll on the
throttle to make the scooter accelerate smoothly.
Controlling the Speed
„ The scooter’s speed is adjusted by the throttle control. Rotate the control
counterclockwise slowly to increase the speed, and rotate the control
clockwise to decrease the scooter’s speed.
Using the Brakes
„ The brakes work best when the front and rear brakes are applied at the
same time. To apply the brakes:
„ Roll off the throttle quickly, and squeeze the front brake lever while
putting pressure on the rear brake lever with your left hand.
„ Do not apply the brakes too quickly or apply the brakes while in a turn, as
loss of traction and control may result.
„ Wet conditions will affect brake effectiveness. It is advisable to give
yourself twice the normal braking distance in wet or slippery conditions.
Take extra care while riding in these conditions.
„ Test your brakes after washing your scooter or riding through a large pool
of water. If this happens, apply the brakes gently until they dry themselves
and work effectively again.
Stopping the Scooter
„ Roll off the throttle and steer the scooter to the side of the road. Gently
apply the front brake with your right hand, and at the same time apply the
rear brake with your left hand.
„ Extend your left foot just before coming to a complete stop so as to keep
the scooter upright when it stops.
„ Turn off the ignition key and dismount the scooter on the left side.
„ Exit the scooter on the left side and use your right foot to extend the side
stand of the scooter. If the scooter is to be parked for an extended period
of time, use the center stand instead.
The scooter should be inspected at monthly intervals using the following list of
items to check.
„ Use a flat area and support the scooter in an upright position.
„ Use caution if the engine and exhaust assembly are hot!
„ Never start the engine in an enclosed area.
„ If you find a problem correct it immediately. To do otherwise is unsafe.
Steering Mechanism
Examine the front fork to be sure it is not bent or damaged. Raise & lower the
front of the scooter and rock it from side to side while listening for any
unusual sounds caused by bent front forks. Also turn the front steering axle to
make sure that it is not binding or too loose.
Check the freeplay of the brake levers as described on page 10. Operate the
front & rear brakes separately while riding at a slow speed. Make sure that
each brake system is functioning correctly. If the brakes function poorly check
the scooter for brake shoe wear, or poorly lubricated / damaged cables. If a
problem is suspected with a braking system part we recommend that you
replace the part rather than try to repair it. This is because the braking system
is an integral part of the safety mechanism of the scooter, and as such should
not be modified in any way.
Examine the tires as described on page 12.
Air Cleaner
Check the air cleaner for restrictions due to excessive dirt or dust. This is
easily done by following the instructions listed below.
Locate the air cleaner cover by looking under the scooter on the left side. Once
the cover has been located, remove the 3 screws which hold the cover in
place. (See Fig. 16)
Fig. 16
Once the 5 screws have been removed, the cover can be carefully opened to
reveal the filter element located within. (See Fig 17)
Fig. 17
Gently remove the filter element for inspection & possible cleaning.
(See Fig 18)
Fig. 18
The air filter can be cleaned using compressed air and returned to service. If
inspection of the filter shows any tears, or the filter cannot be adequately
cleaned with compressed air, then the filter must be replaced. Use caution to
reseat the filter correctly after cleaning or inspection.
The battery is a “maintenance free” type. It should not require electrolyte
replacement. To maintain a full charge on the battery, it is best to use the kick
starter for short trips. Always charge the battery before storing the scooter
for long periods of time. Open the battery plate on the floor board to expose
the battery. If the battery posts appear to be dirty or have a white powder on
them, they will require cleaning. This is done by:
„ Check to see that the ignition is turned off.
„ Disconnect the negative wire first, then the positive wire from the battery
and lift the battery out of the battery compartment.
„ Use a wire brush to clean the battery posts.
„ Gently wash and dry the battery before replacing it into the scooter.
„ Reverse the steps above to reinstall the battery into the scooter.
„ Review the battery installation steps on page 8 for more detailed instructions on reinstalling the battery.
Rear Drive
Examine the rear drive assembly for any signs of oil leakage. There is no way
to accurately measure the oil level. The rear drive oil should be changed if the
oil level is suspected of being low.
The rear drive oil is changed by:
1) Find the rear drive drain plug at the
rear of your scooter. It’s hard to see,
but it’s located on the left side of the
scooter near the rear wheel underneath the rear drive assembly.
(See Fig 19 & 20)
2) After placing a suitable container
under the drain plug, use a wrench to
unscrew the plug and let the fluid
drain out.
Fig 19
Fig 20
3) After the fluid has stopped draining, replace the drain plug in the drain
hole and tighten the plug with a wrench until it is snug. (Do not overtighten the plug!)
4) Unscrew the rear drive oil filler
cap located on top of the rear drive
assembly beside the rear wheel.
(See Fig. 21)
Fig. 21
5) Use a small funnel to pour in
100 cc’s of SAE20W-50 oil into the
rear drive. (See Fig 22)
6) Replace the rear drive oil filler cap
and tighten the cap until snug.
Fig. 22
Open the headlight & taillight assemblies to look for damage & clean out any
accumulated dust. Operate the turn signals & check them for correct operation. Check the turn signals for physical damage.
Spark Plug
„ Locate the spark plug by parking the scooter on it’s side stand and looking
at the cylinder head from the left side of the scooter.
(See Fig 23)
Fig. 23
„ Pull off the spark plug cap, and remove the spark plug with the spark plug
wrench provided in the tool kit. Insert the spark plug back into the spark
plug cap.
„ While touching the threads of the spark to the exhaust manifold bolt, turn
on the ignition and crank the engine over with the kick starter.
(See Fig 24)
Note: only turn the ignition key when the plug is grounded. In this
case, touching the exhaust manifold bolt. Failure to do so may result
in electrical damage.
Fig. 24
„ If the spark appears weak, replace the spark plug.
„ Check that the gap is 0.035 +/- .002 inches.
„ Reinstall the spark plug.
Carburetor Adjustment
„ Start the engine and let it idle for 5 minutes.
„ Adjust the idle adjustment screw until the engine idles at 1500 +/- 100
RPM. (See Fig 25)
Fig. 25
„ Better access to the carburetor is obtained by raising the seat and removing the screws which hold the luggage box in place. Then remove the
luggage box and seat assemblies.
„ Check for signs of fuel leaks at the fuel tank, hose, and carburetor.
„ Reinstall the luggage box and seat.
This section is a handy reference to the most common reasons why your
scooter will not start. Check each of the following suggestions until you
discover what’s preventing your scooter from getting back on the road.
1) Is there fuel in the gas tank?
Review the Adding Fuel section on page 11.
2) Did you squeeze the left brake lever?
A safety switch requires that the left brake lever is squeezed before
your scooter will start.
3) Is the stop switch in the run position?
Review the Start Switch section on page 8.
4) Is there a spark at the spark plug?
Review the Spark Plug section on page 21.
5) Is gas flowing to the carburetor?
„ Raise the seat and remove the screws which hold the luggage box
in place.
„ Remove the luggage box and seat assemblies.
„ Loosen the hose clamp and pull the fuel line from the carburetor.
(See Fig 26)
Fig. 26
„ Hold the fuel line well below the level of the fuel in the fuel tank. While
watching the end of the fuel line, kick the start lever repeatedly. If the fuel
system is operational, fuel will flow from the end of the fuel line.
5) Are the fuses OK?
„ After making sure the ignition is
turned off, expose the battery
wiring. (Review the opening the
battery compartment procedure on
page 8)
„ Locate the fuse block (See Fig 27)
Fig. 27
„ Slide the spare fuse holder over the
end of the fuse block and open the
fuse block. (See Fig 28)
Fig. 28
„ Remove each of the fuses for
examination. (See Fig 29)
„ If you see the fuse wire is broken,
replace the defective fuse with the
spare fuse.
Fig. 29
If the ignition module must be
changed, then use the following
1) Park the scooter on it’s side
stand. Remove the center cover
and side panel or seat box to
expose CDI.
Fig. 30
2) Remove the screw which holds
the CDI unit in place.
(See Fig. 30)
3) Lift the CDI unit out of the
scooter. (See Fig. 31)
Fig. 31
4) Disconnect the wires from the
CDI unit and remove the unit
completely from the scooter.
(See Fig 32)
5) The CDI unit is not repairable.
Exchange the faulty unit with a
new one if required. A new unit
can be installed by reversing the
order of the steps 1 to 4.
Fig. 32
If your scooter will not be used for two months or more, you should store it
properly to ensure that it will run reliably when you take it out of storage. It is
also advisable to make any repairs to the scooter that it may need prior to
storage. This will ensure that you do not forget to make the repairs before
riding the scooter after taking it out of storage.
Drain the fuel from the scooter’s fuel tank, gas line and carburetor. Remove
the fuel tank from the scooter and pour a cup of mixing oil into the tank and
shake the tank so that the oil coats the inner surfaces of the tank. Drain off the
excess oil and reinstall the tank back on the scooter.
Remove the spark plug and squirt 10 cc’s of mixing oil into the cylinder and
reinstall the spark plug. Leave the spark plug lead off the spark plug and use
the electric starter to coat the inside of the cylinder with oil.
Remove the battery from the scooter and give it a full charge prior to storing it
in a place where it will be protected from extreme temperatures.
