WELCOME
The scooter presents you a challenge to master the machine, a challenge to adventure. You
ride through the wind, linked to the road by a vehicle that responds to your commands as no
other does. Unlike an automobile, there is no metal cage around you. Like an airplane, a preride inspection and regular maintenance are essential to your safety. Your reward is freedom.
To meet the challenges safely, and to enjoy the adventure fully, you should become
thoroughly familiar with this owner’s manual BEFORE YOU RIDE THE SCOOTER.
As you read this manual, you will find information that is preceded by a
symbol. This
information is intended to help you avoid damage to your scooter, other property, or the
environment.
When service is required, remember that your Honda dealer knows your scooter best. If you
have the required mechanical ‘‘know-how’’ and tools, your dealer can supply you with an
Official Honda Shop Manual to help you perform many maintenance and repair tasks.
Pleasant riding, and thank you for choosing a Honda !

SCOOTER SAFETY
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Your scooter can provide many years of
service and pleasure − if you take
responsibility for your own safety and
understand the challenges that you can
meet on the road.
There is much that you can do to protect
yourself when you ride. You’ll find many
helpful recommendations throughout this
manual. Following are a few that we
consider to be most important.
Always Wear a Helmet
It’s a proven fact: helmets significantly
reduce the number and severity of head
injuries. So always wear an approved
motorcycle helmet and make sure your
passenger does the same. We also
recommend that you wear eye protection,
sturdy boots, gloves, and other protective
gear (page 2 ).
Make Yourself Easy to See
Some drivers do not see scooters because
they are not looking for them. To make
yourself more visible, wear bright reflective
clothing, position yourself so other drivers
can see you, signal before turning or
changing lanes, and use your horn when it
will help others notice you.
Ride Within Your Limits
Pushing the limits is another major cause of
scooter crashes. Never ride beyond your
personal abilities or faster than conditions
warrant. Remember that alcohol, drugs,
fatigue and inattention can significantly
reduce your abilit y to make good
judgements and ride safely.
1
09/08/05 17:22:01 32KTGC00_012
Don’t Drink and Ride
Alcohol and riding don’t mix. Even one
drink can reduce your ability to respond to
changing conditions, and your reaction time
gets worse with every additional drink. So
don’t drink and ride, and don’t let your
friends drink and ride either.
Keep Your Bike in Safe Condition
For safe riding, it’s important to inspect
your scooter before every ride and perform
all recommended maintenance. Never
exceed load limits, and only use accessories
that have been approved by Honda for this
scooter. See page 5 for more details.
PROTECTIVE APPAREL
For your safety, we strongly recommend
that you always wear an approved
motorcycle helmet, eye protection, boots,
gloves, trousers, and a long-sleeved shirt or
jacket whenever you ride. Although
complete protection is not possible, wearing
proper gear can reduce the chance of injury
when you ride.
Following are suggestions to help you
choose proper gear.
Not wearing a helmet increases the
chance of serious injury or death in a
crash.
Be sure you and your passenger
always wear a helmet, eye protection
and other protective apparel when you
ride.
2
09/08/05 17:22:05 32KTGC00_013
Helmets and Eye Protection
Your helmet is your most important piece of
riding gear because it offers the best
protection against head injuries. A helmet
should fit your head comfortably and
securely. A bright-coloured helmet can
make you more noticeable in traffic, as can
reflective strips.
An open-face helmet offers some protection,
but a full-face helmet offers more. Always
wear a face shield or goggles to protect
your eyes and help your vision.
Additional Riding Gear
In addition to a helmet and eye protection,
we also recommend:
Sturdy boots with non-slip soles to help
protect your feet and ankles.
Leather gloves to keep your hands warm
and help prevent blisters, cuts, burns and
bruises.
A motorcycle riding suit or jacket for
comfort as well as protection. Brightcoloured and reflective clothing can help
make you more noticeable in traffic. Be
sure to avoid loose clothes that could get
caught on any part of your scooter.
3
09/08/05 17:22:12 32KTGC00_014
ALWAYS wear a helmet.
You should also wear a face shield or goggles.
Clothes should be close-fitting.
Wear bright or reflective clothing.
Wear gloves.
Shoes should be close-fitting, have low heels and offer ankle protection.

09/08/05 17:22:19 32KTGC00_015
LOADING AND ACCESSORIES
Your scooter has been designed to carry
you and one passenger. When you carry a
passenger, you may feel some difference
during acceleration and braking. But so long
as you keep your scooter well-maintained,
with good tyres and brakes, you can safely
carry loads within the given guidelines.
However, excessive weight or carrying an
unbalanced load can seriously affect your
scooter’s handling, braking and stability.
Non-Honda accessories, improper
modifications, and poor maintenance can
also reduce your safety margin.
Loading
How much weight you put on your scooter,
and how you load it, are important to your
safety. Anytime you ride with a passenger
or cargo you should be aware of the
following information.
Overloading or improper loading can
cause a crash and you can be
seriously hurt or killed.
Follow all loading guidelines in this
manual.
The following pages give more specific
information on loading, accessories and
modifications.
5
09/08/05 17:22:28 32KTGC00_016
Putting too much weight in individual storage compartments can also affect stability and
handling. So be sure to stay within the limits given below:
Maximum weight:
in center compartment:
shopping hook:
rear carrier:
Rear carrier:
weight limit:
3.0 kg (6.6 lb)

09/08/05 17:22:35 32KTGC00_017
Loading Guidelines
Your scooter is primarily intended for
transporting you and a passenger. You may
wish to secure a jacket or other small items
to the seat when you are not riding with a
passenger.
If you wish to carry more cargo, check with
your Honda dealer for advice, and be sure
to read the inf ormat ion regarding
accessories on page 8 .
Improperly loading your scooter can affect
its stability and handling. Even if your
scooter is properly loaded, you should ride
at reduced speeds whenever carrying cargo.
Follow these guidelines whenever you carry
a passenger or cargo:
Check that both tyres are properly
inflated (page 31 ).
If you change your normal load, you may
need to adjust the rear suspension (page
21 ).
To prevent loose items from creating a
hazard, make sure the center
compartment is closed and that any other
cargo is securely tied down before you
ride away.
Place cargo weight as close to the center
of the scooter as possible.
Balance cargo weight evenly on both
sides.

09/08/05 17:22:42 32KTGC00_018
Accessories and Modifications
Modifying your scooter or using non-Honda
accessories can make your scooter unsafe.
Bef ore you consider making any
modifications or adding an accessory, be
sure to read the following information.
Improper accessories or modifications
can cause a crash in which you can be
seriously hurt or killed.
Follow all instructions in this owner’s
manual regarding accessories and
modifications.
Accessories
We strongly recommend that you use only
Honda Genuine Accessories that have been
specifically designed and tested for your
scooter. Because Honda cannot test all
other accessories, you must be personally
responsible for proper selection, installation
and use of non-Honda accessories. Check
with your dealer for assistance and always
follow these guidelines:
Make sure the accessory does not
obscure any lights, reduce ground
clearance and banking angle, limit
suspension travel or steering travel, alter
your riding position or interfere with
operating any controls.
Be sure electrical equipment does not
exceed the scooter’s electrical system
capacity (page 115 ). A blown fuse can
cause a loss of lights or engine power.
8
09/08/05 17:22:47 32KTGC00_019
Do not pull a trailer or sidecar with your
scooter. This scooter was not designed
for these attachments, and their use can
seriously impair your scooter’s handling.
Modifications
We strongly advise you not to remove any
original equipment or modify your scooter
in any way that would change its design or
operation. Such changes could seriously
impair your scooter’s handling, stability and
braking, making it unsafe to ride.
Removing or modif ying your lights,
mufflers, emission control system or other
equipment can also make your scooter
illegal.

MAJOR COMPONENTS
(Information you need to operate this scooter)
SUSPENSION
Each shock absorber ( 1 ) has 3 adjustment
positions for different load or riding
conditions.
Use a handlebar ( 2 ) to adjust the rear
shocks.
Always adjust the shock absorber position
in sequence (1-2-3 or 3-2-1).
Attempting to adjust directly from 1 to 3 or
3 to 1 may damage the shock absorber.
Position 1 is for light loads and smooth road
conditions. Positions 2 to 3 increase spring
preload for a stiffer rear suspension, and
can be used when the scooter is heavily
loaded. Be certain to adjust both shock
absorbers to the same position.

BRAKES
Combined Brake System (CBS)
This scooter is equipped with a Combined
Brake System. Operating the rear brake
lever applies the rear brake and a portion of
t he f ront br ake. F or f ull braking
effectiveness, use both the front and rear
brake lever simultaneously, as you would
with a conventional scooter braking system.
As with a conventional scooter braking
system, excessively hard application of the
brake controls may cause wheel lock,
reducing control of the scooter.
For normal braking, apply both the front
and rear brake lever to match your road
speed. For maximum braking, close the
throttle and firmly apply the front and rear
brake lever.
22
Front/Rear Brake
Both the front and rear brakes are the
hydraulic disc types.
As the brake pads wear, the brake fluid
level drops.
There are no adjustments to perform, but
fluid level and pad wear must be inspected
periodically. The system must be inspected
frequently to ensure there are no fluid leaks.
If the control lever free travel becomes
excessive and the brake pads are not worn
beyond the recommended limit (page 89 ),
there is probably air in the brake system
and it must be bled. See your Honda dealer
for this service.
09/08/05 17:24:24 32KTGC00_033
Front Brake Fluid Level:
With the scooter in an upright position,
check the fluid level. It should be above the
LOWER level mark ( 1 ). If the level is at or
below the LOWER level mark, check the
brake pads for wear (page 89 ).
Worn pads should be replaced. If the pads
are not worn, have your brake system
inspected for leaks.
(1)
The recommended brake fluid is Honda
DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed
container, or an equivalent.
Other Checks:
Make sure there are no fluid leaks. Check
for deterioration or cracks in the hoses and
fittings.

COOLANT
Coolant Recommendation
Use only genuine HONDA PRE-MIX
COOLANT containing corrosion inhibitors,
specifically recommended for aluminum
engines when adding or replacing the
coolant.
Genuine HONDA PRE-MIX COOLANT is
excellent at preventing corrosion and
overheating. The effects last for up to 2
years.
Use any genuine HONDA PRE-MIX
COOLANT without diluting with water.
Do not use non-ethylene glycol coolant, tap
water, nor mineral water when adding or
replacing the coolant.
Use of improper coolant may cause damage,
such as corrosions in the engine, blockage
of the cooling passage or radiator and
premature wear of the water pump seal.
The coolant should be inspected and
replaced properly by f ollowing the
maintenance schedule (page 69 ).
25
09/08/05 17:24:44 32KTGC00_036
Inspection
The reserve tank ( 1 ) is behind the front
cover ( 2 ).
Check the coolant level in the reserve tank
while the engine is at the normal operating
temperature with the scooter in an upright
position. If the coolant level is below the
LOWER level mark ( 3 ), remove the front
cover (page 47 ) and reserve tank cap ( 4 ),
and add coolant mixture until it reaches the
UPPER level mark ( 5 ).
Always add coolant to the reserve tank. Do
not attempt to add coolant by removing the
radiator cap.
If the reserve tank is empty, or if coolant
loss is excessive, check for leaks and see
your Honda dealer for repair.

(3) Arrow marks
27
09/08/05 17:24:57 32KTGC00_038
Do not overfill the tank. There should be no
fuel in the filler neck ( 2 ).
After refueling, be sure to tighten the fuel
fill cap firmly by turning it clockwise.
Make sure that the arrow marks ( 3 ) on the
fuel fill cap and fuel tank are aligned.
Close the seat.
Use unleaded petrol with a research octane
number of 91 or higher.
The use of leaded petrol will cause
premature damage to the catalytic
converter.
If ‘‘spark knock’’ or ‘‘pinking’’ occurs at a
steady engine speed under normal load,
change brands of petrol. If spark knock or
pinking persists, consult your Honda dealer.
Failure to do so is considered misuse, and
damage caused by misuse is not covered by
Honda’s Limited Warranty.
28
09/08/05 17:25:02 32KTGC00_039
Petrol Containing Alcohol
If you decide to use a petrol containing
alcohol (gasohol), be sure it’s octane rating
is at least as high as that recommended by
Honda. There are two types of ‘‘gasohol’’:
one containing ethanol, and the other
containing methanol. Do not use petrol that
contains more than 10 % ethanol. Do not use
petrol containing methanol (methyl or wood
alcohol) that does not also contain
cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors for
methanol. Never use petrol containing more
than 5 % methanol, even if it has cosolvents
and corrosion inhibitors.
The use of petrol containing more than 10 %
ethanol (or more than 5 % methanol) may:
Damage the painting of the fuel tank.
Damage the rubber tubes of the fuel line.
Cause corrosion of the fuel tank.
Cause poor drivability.
Before buying fuel from an unfamiliar
station, try to find out if the fuel contains
alcohol. If it does, confirm the type and
percentage of alcohol used. If you notice
any undesirable operating symptoms while
using a petrol that contains alcohol, or one
that you think contains alcohol, switch to a
petrol that you know does not contain
alcohol.

ENGINE OIL
Engine Oil Level Check
Check the engine oil level each day before
riding the scooter.
The level must be maintained between the
upper ( 1 ) and lower ( 2 ) level marks on the
oil filler cap/dipstick ( 3 ).
1. Start the engine and let it idle for 3−5
minutes.
2. Stop the engine and put the scooter on its
center stand on level ground.
3. After 2−3 minutes, remove the oil filler
cap/dipstick, wipe it clean, and reinsert
the oil f iller cap/dipstick without
screwing it in. Remove the oil filler cap/
dipstick. The oil level should be between
the upper and lower level marks on the oil
filler cap/dipstick.
4. If required, add the specified oil (see
page 78 ) up to the upper level mark. Do
not overfill.
5. Reinstall the oil filler cap/dipstick. Check
for oil leaks.
Running the engine with insufficient oil
pressure may cause serious engine damage.

TUBELESS TYRES
To safely operate your scooter, your tyres
must be the proper type and size, in good
condition with adequate tread, and correctly
inflated for the load you are carrying. The
following pages give more detailed information on how and when to check your air
pressure, how to inspect your tyres for
damage, and what to do when your tyres
need to be repaired or replaced.
Air Pressure
Keeping your tyres properly inflated
provides the best combination of handling,
tread life and riding comfort. Generally,
underinf lated tyres w ear unevenly,
adversely affect handling, and are more
likely to fail from being overheated.
Overinflated tyres make your scooter ride
harshly, are more prone to damage from
road hazards, and wear unevenly.
Using tyres that are excessively worn
or improperly inflated can cause a
crash in which you can be seriously
hurt or killed.
We recommend that you visually check
your tyres before every ride and use a
gauge to measure air pressure at least once
a month or any time you think the tyres
might be low.
Tubeless tyres have some self-sealing
ability if they are punctured. However,
because leakage is often very slow, you
should look closely for punctures whenever
a tyre is not fully inflated.
Follow all instructions in this owner’s
manual regarding tyre inflation and
maintenance.
31
09/08/05 17:25:26 32KTGC00_042
Always check air pressure when your tyres
are ‘‘cold’’ − when the scooter has been
parked for at least three hours. If you check
air pressure when your tyres are ‘‘warm’’ −
when the scooter has been ridden for even
a few miles − the readings will be higher
than if the tyres were ‘‘cold’’. This is normal,
so do not let air out of the tyres to match
the recommended cold air pressures given
below. If you do, the tyres will be
underinflated.
The recommended ‘‘cold’’ tyre pressures
are:
kPa (kgf/cm , psi)
Driver

Front
Rear
175 (1.75 , 25)
200 (2.00 , 29)

Inspection
Whenever you check the tyre pressures,
you should also examine the tyre treads and
sidewalls for wear, damage, and foreign
objects:
Look for:
Bumps or bulges in the side of the tyre or
the tread. Replace the tyre if you find any
bumps or bulges.
Cuts, splits or cracks in the tyre. Replace
the tyre if you can see fabric or cord.
Excessive tread wear.
Also, if you hit a pothole or hard object, pull
to the side of the road as soon as you can
safely and carefully inspect the tyres for
damage.
09/08/05 17:25:31 32KTGC00_043
Tread Wear
Replace tyres before tread depth at the
center of the tyre reaches the following
limit:
(1)
Minimum tread depth

Rear:
1.5 mm (0.06 in)
2.0 mm (0.08 in)

09/08/05 17:25:36 32KTGC00_044
Tyre Repair
If a tyre is punctured or damaged, you
should replace it, not repair it. As discussed
below, a tyre that is repaired, either
temporarily or permanently, will have lower
speed and performance limits than a new
tyre.
A temporary repair, such as an external
tubeless tyre plug, may not be safe for
normal speeds and riding conditions. If a
temporary or emergency repair is made to a
tyre, you should ride slowly and cautiously
to a dealer and have the tyre replaced. If
possible, you should not carry a passenger
or cargo until a new tyre is installed.
34
Even if a tyre is professionally repaired with
a permanent internal patch plug, it will not
be as good as a new tyre. You should not
exceed 60 km/h (40 mph) for the first 24
hours. In addition, you may not be able to
safely carry as much weight as with a new
tyre. Therefore, we strongly recommend
that you replace a damaged tyre. If you
choose to have a tyre repaired, be sure the
wheel is balanced before you ride.
09/08/05 17:25:45 32KTGC00_045
Tyre Replacement
The tyres that came on your scooter were
designed to match the perf ormance
capabilities of your scooter and provide the
best combination of handling, braking,
durability and comfort.
Installing improper tyres on your
scooter can affect handling and
stability. This can cause a crash in
which you can be seriously hurt or
killed.
Always use the size and type of tyres
recommended in this owner’s manual.
The recommended tyres for your scooter
are:
Front: 100/80−16M/C 50P
DUNLOP
D451
IRC
SS−530F
Rear: 120/80−16M/C 60P
DUNLOP
D451
IRC
SS−530R
Type: bias−ply, tubeless
Whenever you replace a tyre, use one that
is equivalent to the original and be sure the
wheel is balanced after the new tyre is
installed.
35
09/08/05 17:25:49 32KTGC00_046
Important Safety Reminders
Do not install a tube inside a tubeless tyre
on this scooter. Excessive heat build-up
can cause the tube to burst.
Use only tubeless tyres on this scooter.
The rims are designed for tubeless tyres,
and during hard acceleration or braking,
a tube-type tyre could slip on the rim and
cause the tyre to rapidly deflate.

STARTING THE ENGINE
Always follow the proper starting procedure
described below.
This scooter has an automatic fuel valve.
To protect the catalytic converter in your
scooter’s exhaust system, avoid extending
idling and the use of leaded petrol.
Your scooter’s exhaust contains poisonous
carbon monoxide gas. High levels of carbon
monoxide can collect rapidly in enclosed
areas such as a garage. Do not run the
engine with the garage door closed. Even
with the door open, run the engine only
long enough to move your scooter out of
the garage.
Do not use the electric starter for more than
5 seconds at a time. Release the start button
for approximately 10 seconds before
pressing it again.
50
09/08/05 17:27:39 32KTGC00_061

PARKING
1. After stopping the scooter turn the
ignition switch to the ‘‘OFF’’ position and
remove the key.
2. Use the center stand to support the
scooter while parked.
Park the scooter on firm, level ground to
prevent it from falling over.
If you must park on a slight incline, aim the
front of the scooter uphill to reduce the
possibility of rolling off the center stand or
overturning.
3. Lock the steering to help prevent theft
(page 41 ).
The exhaust pipe and muffler become
very hot during operation and remain
sufficiently hot to inflict burns if touched
even after shutting off the engine.
Make sure flammable materials such as
dry grass or leaves do not come in contact
with the exhaust system when parking
your scooter.

MAINTENANCE
THE IMPORTANCE OF
MAINTENANCE
A well-maintained scooter is essential for
safe, economical and trouble-free riding. It
will also help reduce air pollution.
To help you properly care for your scooter,
the following pages include a Maintenance
Schedule and a Maintenance Record for
regularly scheduled maintenance.
These instructions are based on the
assumption that the scooter will be used
exclusively for its designed purpose.
Sustained high speed operation or operation
in unusually wet or dusty conditions will
require more f requent service than
specified in the Maintenance Schedule.
Consult your Honda dealer f or
recommendations applicable to your
individual needs and use.
If your scooter overturns or becomes
involved in a crash, be sure your Honda
dealer inspects all major parts, even if you
are able to make some repairs.
Improperly maintaining this scooter or
failing to correct a problem before you
ride can cause a crash in which you
can be seriously hurt or killed.
Always follow the inspection and
maintenance recommendations and
schedules in this owner’s manual.
65
09/08/05 17:29:16 32KTGC00_076
MAINTENANCE SAFETY
This section includes instructions on some
important maintenance tasks. You can
perform some of these tasks with the tools
provided − if you have basic mechanical
skills.
Other tasks that are more difficult and
require special tools are best performed by
professionals. Wheel removal should
normally be handled only by a Honda
technician or other qualified mechanic;
instructions are included in this manual only
to assist in emergency service.
Some of the most important saf ety
precautions follow. However, we cannot
warn you of every conceivable hazard that
can arise in performing maintenance. Only
you can decide whether or not you should
perform a given task.
66
Failure to properly follow maintenance
instructions and precautions can
cause you to be seriously hurt or killed.
Always follow the procedures and
precautions in this owner’s manual.
09/08/05 17:29:22 32KTGC00_077
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Make sure the engine is off before you
begin any maintenance or repairs. This
will help eliminate several potential
hazards:
Carbon monoxide poisoning from
engine exhaust.
Be sure there is adequate ventilation
whenever you operate the engine.
Burns from hot parts.
Let the engine and exhaust system cool
before touching.
Injury from moving parts.
Do not run the engine unless instructed
to do so.
Read the instructions before you begin,
and make sure you have the tools and
skills required.
To help prevent the scooter from falling
over, park it on a firm, level surface, using
the center stand to provide support.
To reduce the possibility of a fire or
explosion, be careful when working
around petrol or batteries. Use only
nonflammable solvent, not petrol, to clean
parts. Keep cigarettes, sparks and flames
away from the battery and all fuel-related
parts.
Remember that your Honda dealer knows
your scooter best and is fully equipped to
maintain and repair it.
To ensure the best quality and reliability,
use only new Honda Genuine Parts or their
equivalents for repair and replacement.

Engine Oil/Oil Strainer Screen
Engine oil quality is the chief factor
affecting engine service life. Change the
engine oil as specified in the maintenance
schedule (page 69 ).
When running in very dusty conditions, oil
changes should be perf ormed more
f requently than specif ied in the
maintenance schedule.
Please dispose of used engine oil in a
manner that is compatible with the
environment. We suggest you take it in a
sealed container to your local recycling
center or service station for reclamation. Do
not throw it in the trash or pour it on the
ground or down a drain.
Used engine oil may cause skin cancer if
repeatedly left in contact with the skin for
prolonged periods. Although this is unlikely
unless you handle used oil on a daily basis,
it is still advisable to thoroughly wash your
hands with soap and water as soon as possible after handling used oil.
80
Changing the oil requires a torque wrench.
If you do not have it and the necessary skill,
we recommend that you have your Honda
dealer perform this service.
If a torque wrench is not used for this
installation, see your Honda dealer as soon
as possible to verify proper assembly.
Change the engine oil with the engine at
normal operating temperature and the
scooter on its center stand to assure
complete and rapid draining.
09/08/05 17:31:22 32KTGC00_091

CLEANING
Clean your scooter regularly to protect the
surface finishes and inspect for damage,
wear, and oil, coolant or brake fluid leakage.
Avoid cleaning products that are not
specif ically designed f or scooter or
automobile surfaces.
They may contain harsh detergents or
chemical solvents that could damage the
metal, paint, and plastic on your scooter.
If your scooter is still warm from recent
operation, give the engine and exhaust
system time to cool off.
We recommend avoiding the use of high
pressure water spray (typical in coinoperated car washes).
High pressure water (or air) can damage
certain parts of the scooter.
104
Washing the scooter
1. Rinse the scooter thoroughly with cool
water to remove loose dirt.
2. Clean the scooter with a sponge or soft
cloth using cool water.
Avoid directing water to muffler outlets
and electrical parts.
3. Clean the plastic parts using a cloth or
sponge dampened with a solution of mild
detergent and water. Rub the soiled area
gently rinsing it frequently with fresh
water.
Take care to keep brake fluid or chemical
solvents off the scooter.
They will damage the plastic and painted
surfaces.
The inside of the headlight lens may be
clouded immediately after washing the
scooter. Moisture condensation inside the
headlight lens will disappear gradually by
lighting the headlight in high beam. Run the
engine while keeping the headlight on.
09/08/05 17:34:27 32KTGC00_115
4. Af ter cleaning, rinse the scooter
thoroughly with plenty of clean water.
Strong detergent residue can corrode
alloy parts.
5. Dry the scooter, start the engine and let it
run for several minutes.
6. Test the brakes before riding the scooter.
Several applications may be necessary to
restore normal braking performance.
Braking efficiency may be temporarily
impaired immediately after washing the
scooter.
Anticipate longer stopping distance to avoid
a possible accident.
TEST BRAKES
105
09/08/05 17:34:34 32KTGC00_116
Finishing Touches
After washing your scooter, consider using
a commercially-available spray cleaner/
polish or quality liquid or paste wax to finish
the job. Use only a non-abrasive polish or
wax made specifically for motorcycles or
automobiles. Apply the polish or wax
according to the instructions on the
container.
Removing Road Salt
Seawater can be found on the road near the
seaside. The salt in seawater causes rust.
Wash your scooter as follows after it has
run through salty water.
1. Clean the scooter using cool water (page
104 ).
Do not use warm water.
This worsens the effect of the salt.
2. Dry the scooter and the surface of the

clean engine oil into the cylinder and
cover the spark plug hole with a piece
of cloth.
Crank the engine several times to
distribute the oil.
Reinstall the spark plug and spark plug
cap.
5. Remove the battery. Store in an area
protected from freezing temperatures
and direct sunlight.
Slow charge the battery once a month.

TAKING CARE OF THE UNEXPECTED
IF YOU CRASH
Personal safety is your first priority after a
crash. If you or anyone else has been
injured, take time to assess the severity of
the injuries and whether it is safe to
continue riding. Call f or emergency
assistance if needed. Also follow applicable
laws and regulations if another person or
vehicle is involved in the crash.
If there is minor damage, or you are unsure
about possible damage, ride slowly and
cautiously. Sometimes, crash damage is
hidden or not immediately apparent, so you
should have your scooter thoroughly
checked at a qualified service facility as
soon as possible. Also, be sure to have your
Honda dealer check the frame and
suspension after any serious crash.
If you decide that you are capable of riding
safely, first evaluate the condition of your
scooter. If the engine is still running, turn it
off and look it over carefully; inspect it for
fluid leaks, check the tightness of critical
nuts and bolts, and secure such parts as the
handlebar, control levers, brakes, and
wheels.

CATALYTIC CONVERTER
This scooter is equipped with a catalytic
converter.
The catalytic converter contains precious
metals that serve as catalysts, promoting
chemical reactions to convert the exhaust
gasses without affecting the metals.
The catalytic converter acts on HC, CO, and
NOx. A replacement unit must be an
original Honda part or its equivalent.
A defective catalytic converter contributes
to air pollution, and can impair your engine’s
performance. Follow these guidelines to
protect your scooter’s catalytic converter.
The catalytic converter must operate at a
high temperature for the chemical reactions
to take place. It can set on fire any
combustible materials that come near it.
Park your scooter away from high grasses,
dry leaves, or other flammables.
Keep the engine in good running
condition.
A poorly running engine can cause the
catalytic converter to overheat causing
damage to the converter or the scooter.
Always use unleaded petrol. Even a small
amount of leaded petrol can contaminate
the catalyst metals, making the catalytic
converter ineffective.
If your engine is misfiring, backfiring,
stalling, or otherwise not running
properly, stop riding and turn off the
engine. Have your scooter serviced as
soon as possible.
