is much that you can do to protect
he 6 you ride. You’ Il find many
helpful recommendations throughout this
manual. Following are à few that we
consider most important.
Always Wear à Helmet E.
It's a proven fact: Helmets significantly
reduce the number and severity of head
injuries. So always wear a helmet. We also
recommend that you wear eye protection,
sturdy boots, gloves and other protective
gear (page 3).

Ride Defensively
The most frequent scooter collision happens
when a car turns left in front of a scooter.
Another common situation is a car moving
suddenly into your lane. Always pay
attention to other vehicles around you, and
do not assume that other drivers see you.
Be prepared to stop quickly or make an
evasive maneuver. For other riding tips,
see the booklet, you and your Motorcycle:
Riding Tips and Practice Guide, which
came with your new scooter (USA only).

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 mayor cause
of scooter accidents. Never ride beyond
your personal abilities or faster than
conditions warrant. Remember that alco-
hol, drugs, fatigue and inattention can
significantly reduce your ability to make
good judgements and ride safely.
Keep Your Bike in Safe Condition
For safe riding, it's important to inspect
your scooter before every ride and perform
all recomended maintenance. Never exceed
load limits, and only use accessories that
have been approved by Honda for this
scooter. See page 6 for more details.
PROTECTIVE APPAREL
For your safety, we strongly recommend
that you always wear an approved
motorcycle helmet, eye protection, boots,
gloves, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt
or jacket whenever you ride. Although com-
plete 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 always wear a
helmet, eye protection and other
protective apparel when you ride.
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-colored 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. Regardless of the style, look for a
DOT (Department of Transportation)
sticker in any helmet you buy (USA only),
and always wear a face shield or goggles to
protect your eyes and help your vision.

LOADING, ACCESSORIES AND
MODIFICATIONS
Your scooter has been designed to carry
you, and a limited amount of cargo. When
you add cargo, you may feel some difference
during acceleration and braking. But so
long as you keep your scooter well-
maintained, with good tires and brakes,
you can safely carry loads within the given
limits and guidelines.
However, exceeding the weight limit or
carrying an unbalanced load can seriously
affect your scooter's handling, braking
and stability. Non-Honda accessories,
improper modifications, and poor
maintainance can also reduce your safety
margin.
The following pages give more specific
information on loading, accessories and
modifications.
Loading
How much weight you put on your scooter, and
how you load it, are important to your safety.
Anytime you ride with cargo you should be
aware of the following information.
Overloading or carrying a passenger
can cause a crash and you can be
seriously hurt or Killed.
Follow all load limits and other loading
guidelines in this manual.
Load Limits
Following are the load limits for your scooter:
Maximum weight capacity = 91 kg (200 lbs)
Includes the weight of the rider, all cargo and
all accessories,
-—_ HN
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 = 10 kg (22 Ibs)
on rear carrier = 3 kg (6.6 lbs)
in glove box = 1.5 kg (3 Ibs)

Loading Guidelines
Improperly loading your scooter can affect
its stability and handling. Even if your
scooter 1s properly loaded, you should ride
at reduced speeds whenever you carry car-
go.
Follow these guidelines whenever you
carry cargo.
* Check that both tires are properly
inflated (page 27).
* To prevent loose items from creating a
hazard, make sure all compartments are
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.
Accessories and Modifications
Modifying your scooter or using non-Hon-
da accessories can make your scooter
unsafe. Before you consider making any
modifications or adding an accessory, be
sure to read the following information.
Improper accessories or modification
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 strong recommend that you use only
genuine Honda 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:
e 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.
e Donot install any fairing or windshield
unless it was designed and tested by
Honda for your scooter. Some fairings
or windshields, even smaller ones, can
cause unstable handling of your scooter.
This is especially true if the fairing of
windshield is poorly designed Of
improperly mounted. „9

Be sure electrical equipment does not
exceed the scooter's electrical system
capacity (page 73). A blown fuse can
cause a loss of lights or engine power.
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 modifying your lights,
mufflers, emission control system or other
equipment can also make your scooter
illegal.
SAFETY LABELS
The following shows the locations of safety labels on your scooter. Some labels warn you of potential
hazards that could cause serious injury. Others provide important safety information.
Read these labels carefully and don't remove them.
If a label comes off or becomes hard to read, contact your Honda scooter dealer for a replacement.
For your protection, always
wear your helmet while riding.

A WARNING
Gasoline is highly flammable and
explosive. You can be burned or
seriously injured when handling fuel.
* Stop the engine and keep heat,
sparks, and flame away.
* Handle fuel only outdoors.
* Wipe up spills immediately
Y our engine is designed to use any gasoline
that has a pump octane number of 86 or
higher. |
Gasoline pumps at service stations
normally display the pump octane number.
We recommend that you use unleaded fuel
because it produces fewer engine and spark
plug deposits and extends the life of exhaust
system components.
Never use stale or contaminated gasoline
or an oil/gasoline mixture. Avoid getting
dirt, dust or water in the fuel tank. Use of
a lower octane gasoline can cause persistent
"pinging" or heavy "spark knock” ( a
metallic rapping noise) which, if severe,
can lead to engine damage.
If "spark knock" or "pinging" occurs at a
steady engine speed under normal load,
change brands of gasoline. If spark knock
or pinging persists, consult your authorized
Honda scooter dealer.
Failure to do so is considered misuse, and
damage caused by misuse is not covered by
Honda's Limited Warranty.
Occasionally you may experience light
spark knock while operating under heavy
loads. This is no cause for concern, it
simply means your engine is operating
efficiently.
23
Oxygenated Fuels
Some conventional gasolines are being
blended with alcohol or an ether compound.
These gasolines are collectively referred
to as oxygenated fuels. To meet clean air
standards, some areas of the United States
and Canada use oxygenated fuels to help
reduce emissions.
If you use an oxygenated f uel, be sure it is
unleaded and meets the minimum octane
rating requirement.
Before using an oxygenated fuel, try to
confirm the fuel's contents. Some states/
provinces require this information to be
posted on the pump.
The following are the EPA approved
percentages of oxygenates:
ETHANOL (ethyl or grain alcohol) 10% by
Volume ;
You may use gasoline containing up to
10% ethanol by volume. Gasoline
containing ethanol may be marketed under
the name "Gasohol" °
24
MTBE (Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether) 1
by Volume
. e, 240 700) М
You may use gasoline containing ua
15% MTBE by volume. ais
METHANOL (methyl or wood alcohol) 5%
by Volume >
You may use gasoline containing up to 5%
methanol by volume as long as it also
contains cosolvents and corrosion
inhibitors to protect the fuel system.
Gasoline containing more than 5%
methanol by volume may cause starting
and/or performance problems. It may also
damage metal, rubber, and plastic parts of
your fuel system.
If you notice any undesirable operating
symptoms, try another service station or
switch to another brand of gasoline.
Fuel system damage or performance
problems resulting from the use of an
oxygenated fuel containing more than the
percentages of oxygenates mentioned above
are not covered under warranty.
-. a
ENGINE OIL
Oil Level
When the low oil level indicator lights, it
means the oil level in the oil tank 1s low;
stop the engine and fill the oil tank as soon
as possible.
If the engine has been run after the low oil
level indicator has come on, the scooter
must be taken to an authorized Honda
scooter dealer for inspection and bleeding
of the oil system.
Continuing to ride with a low oil level may
lead to engine failure.
To fill, lift the seat, remove the cap (1)
from the oil tank, and fill with the
recommended oil up to the UPPER LEVEL
mark (2).
Capacity: 0.8 ¢ (0.8 US qt, 0.7 Imp qt)
(2)
(1) Oil tank cap (2) UPPER LEVEL mark
Qil Recommendation:
USE PRO HONDA GN2 2-STROKE OIL
OR AN EQUIVALENT
The use of improper oils may cause
excessive and/or premature carbon build-
up in the engine and exhaust system,
resulting in loss of power and possible
engine damage. Genuine Pro Honda 2-
Stroke Oil has been specifically designed
and tested in Honda scooters and is a
proper oil.
When filling, do not let dirt or other foreign
materials enter the tank.
TIRES
To safely operate your scooter, your tires
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 tires for damage, and what to do when
your tires need to be repaired or replaced.
Using tires that are excessively worn
or improperly inflated can cause a
crash in which you can be seriously
hurt or killed.
Follow all instructions in this owner's
manual regarding tire inflation and
maintenance.
Air pressure
Keeping Your tires properly inflated
provides the best combination of handling,
tread life and riding comfort. Underinflated
tires wear unevenly, adversely affect
handling, and are more likely to fail from
being overheated. Overinflated tires make
your scooter ride more harshly, are more
prone to damage from road hazards, and
wear unevenly.
We recommend that you visually check
your tires before every ride and use a
gauge to measure the air pressure at least
once a month or any time you think the
tires might be low.
Always check air pressure when your tires
are "cold"—when the scooter has been
parked for at least three hours. If you
check air pressure when your tires are
"warm" —when the scooter has beenridden
for even a few miles — the readings will
be higher than if the tires were "cold".
This is normal, so do not let air out of the
tires to match the recommended cold air
pressures given below. If you do, the tires
will be underinflated.
The recommended "cold" tire pressures
are:
| Front [ 125 kPa (1.25 kg/cm, 18 psi)
Rear | 225 kPa (2.25 kg/cm?, 33 psi)
28
Inspection
Whenever you check the tire pres 5! res,
you should also examine the tire t ads *
and sidewalls for wear, damage, and fo
objects. a
Look for: sb
* Bumps or bulges in the side the tire or
the tread. Replace the tire if you find
any bumps or bulges.
Cuts, splits or cracks in the tire. Replace
the tire 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
safely can and carefully inspect the tires
for damage.
Tread Wear
Inspect the wear indicator (1) to check for
insufficient tread depth. If the wear
indicators is visible, the tire should be
replaced.
(2)
(1) Wear indicator
(2) Wear indicator location mark
Tube Repair and Replacement
If a tube is punctured or damaged, you
should replace it as soon as possible. A
tube that is repaired may not have the same
reliability as a new one, and it may fail
while you are riding.
If you need to make a temporary repair by
patching a tube or using an aerosol sealant,
ride cautiously at reduced speed and have
the tube replaced before you ride again.
Any time a tube is replaced, the tire should
be carefully inspected as described on page
28.
Tire Replacement
The tires that came on your scooter were
designed to match the performance
capabilities of your scooter and provide
the best combination of handling, braking,
durability and comfort.
Installing improper tires 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 tires
recommended in this owner's manual.

Whenever you replace a tire, use one that
is equivalent to the originals and be sure
the wheel is balanced after the new tire 15

OPERATION
PRE-RIDE INSPECTION
For your safety, it is very important to take
a few moments before each ride to walk
around your scooter and check its condition.
If you detect any problem, be sure you take
care of it, or have it corrected by your
Honda scooter dealer.
Improperly maintaining this scooter or
failing to correct a problem before
riding can cause a crash in which you
can be seriously hurt or killed.
Always perform a pre-ride inspection
before every ride and correct any
problems.
38
Check the following items before you get
on the scooter.
Tires If a tire looks low, check the air
pressure with a gauge. Also look
for signs of damage or excessive
wear (page 28).
Leaks Look for signs of leaking fluids
under the scooter.
Cables, Check for loose cables and other
Etc. parts, and anything that appears
abnormal.
Check these items after you get on the
scooter:
Throttle Rotate the throttle to check that
it moves smoothly without
binding.
Brakes Pull the front and rear brake
levers to check that they operate
normally.
Gauges Turn the ignition on and check for
normal operation of the gauges
and indicators.
Lights Make sure the brake light, taillight
and other lights are working
properly.
Remember, be sure to take care of any
problem you find, or have your dealer
correct it, before you ride.

MAINTENANCE
THE IMPORTANCE OF
MAINTENANCE
A well-maintained scooter is essential for
safe, economical and trouble-free riding.
It will also help reduce pollution.
To help you properly care for your scooter,
the following pages include a Maintenance
Schedule and 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 frequent
service than specified in the Maintenance
Schedule.
Consult your authorized Honda scooter
dealer for 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.

Checking and Replacing the Fuse
If something electrical on your motorcycle
stops working, the first thing you should
check for is a blown fuse.
(1) Fuse holder
(2) Spare fuse
To replace the fuse:
1. Turn the ignition switch OFF before
checking or replacing the fuse to prevent
an accidental short circuit.
2. Open the seat and remove the center
cover (page 37).
3. Open the fuse holder and lift out the
fuse with the clips.
4. Slide the old fuse out of the clips and
discard it.
5. Slide the clips onto the ends of the new
fuse, push them back into fuse holder,
and close the fuse holder.
REMOVAL FUSE HOLDER
Do not pry the clips open to get a fuse out
you could bend them and cause poor contac
with the new fuse.
6. After replacing the fuse, be sure to
return the fuse holder to its original
location.
INSTALLATION
If the replacement fuse of the same rating
burns out in a short time, there is probably
a serious electrical problem on your
scooter. Leave the blown fuse in that circuit
and have your scooter checked by a
qualified technician.
Replacing a fuse with one that has a higher
rating greatly increases the chances of
damaging the electrical system. If you do
not have a replacement fuse with the proper
rating for the circuit, install one with a
lower rating.
