QGIVE SAFETY THE RIGHT OF WAY

EAU00021
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.
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 motorcycle suit (whether made of leather or tear-resistant synthetic
materials with protectors), sturdy boots, motorcycle 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 self-control 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!

Further safe-riding points
Safe-riding points
8 Be sure to signal clearly when making turns.
8 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.
8 Slow down as you approach a corner or turn. Once you have completed a turn, accelerate slowly.
8 Be careful when passing parked cars. A driver might not see you and open a door in your path.
8 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.
8 The brake pads could get wet when you wash the scooter. After washing the scooter, check the
brakes before riding.
8 Always wear a helmet, gloves, trousers (tapered around the cuff and ankle so they do not flap),
and a bright colored jacket.
8 Do not carry too much luggage on the scooter. An overloaded scooter is unstable.

Your Yamaha engine has been
designed to use regular unleaded
gasoline with a research octane number of 91 or higher. If knocking (or
pinging) occurs, use a gasoline of a
different brand or premium unleaded
fuel. Use of unleaded fuel will extend
spark plug life and reduce maintenance costs.
Use only unleaded gasoline. The

NOTE:
The built-in sidestand switch is part of
the ignition circuit cut-off system,
which cuts the ignition in certain situations. (See further down for an
explanation of the ignition circuit cutoff system.)

The scooter must not be ridden
with the sidestand down, or if the
sidestand cannot be properly
moved up (or does not stay up),
otherwise the sidestand could contact the ground and distract the
operator, resulting in a possible
loss of control. Yamaha’s ignition
circuit cut-off system has been
designed to assist the operator in
fulfilling the responsibility of raising the sidestand before starting
off. Therefore, check this system
regularly as described below and
have a Yamaha dealer repair it if it
does not function properly.

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.

There is never a more important period in the life of your engine than the
period between 0 and 1,600 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 1,600 km. The various parts in
the engine wear and polish themselves to the correct operating clearances. During this period, prolonged
full-throttle operation or any condition
that might result in engine overheating must be avoided.

Spark plug, checking
The spark plug is an important
engine component, which is easy to
check. Since heat and deposits will
cause any spark plug to slowly erode,
the spark plug 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.

To check the spark plug
1. Check that the porcelain insulator around the center electrode
of the spark plug is a medium-tolight tan (the ideal color when the
scooter is ridden normally).
NOTE:
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.
2. Check the spark plug for electrode erosion and excessive carbon or other deposits, and
replace it if necessary.

To maximize the performance, durability, and safe operation of your
scooter, note the following points
regarding the specified wheels.
8 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.
8 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

Checking the brake fluid
level
Brake fluid level, checking
Insufficient brake fluid may allow air
to enter the brake system, possibly
causing it to become ineffective.
Before riding, check that the brake
fluid is above the minimum level mark
and replenish if necessary. A low
brake fluid level may indicate worn
brake pads and/or brake system
leakage. If the brake level is low, be
sure to check the brake pads for
wear and the brake system for leakage.
6-29
Observe these precautions:
8 When checking the fluid level,
make sure that the top of the
brake fluid reservoir is level.
8 Use only the recommended quality brake fluid, otherwise the rubber seals may deteriorate, causing leakage and poor braking
performance.
Recommended brake fluid:

8 Refill with the same type of brake
fluid. Mixing fluids may result in a
harmful chemical reaction and
lead to poor braking performance.
8 Be careful that water does not
enter the brake fluid reservoir
when refilling. Water will significantly lower the boiling point of
the fluid and may result in vapor
lock.
8 Brake fluid may deteriorate painted surfaces or plastic parts.
Always clean up spilled fluid
immediately.
8 As the brake pads wear, it is normal for the brake fluid level to
gradually go down. However, if
the brake fluid level goes down
suddenly, have a Yamaha dealer
check the cause.

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 charts
represent quick and easy procedures
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.

Care
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.
7
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.

cC
ECA00011
8 Avoid using strong acidic
wheel cleaners, especially on
spoked wheels. If such products are used on hard-toremove 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.
8 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.
5SJ-28199-E0 1/24/02 6:14 PM Page 97
SCOOTER CARE AND STORAGE
8 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.
8 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.
8 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 salt-sprayed roads.
NOTE:
Salt sprayed on roads in the winter
may remain well into spring.
1. Clean the scooter with cold water
and a mild detergent after the
engine has cooled down.
cC

Do not use warm water since it
increases the corrosive action of
the salt.
2. Apply a corrosion protection

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 nickel-plated,
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

dry place and, if necessary, protect it
against dust with a porous cover.
cC
ECA00015
8 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.
8 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.)
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.
w

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. 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 6-35.
NOTE:
Make any necessary repairs before
storing the scooter.
