/\ SAFETY INFORMATION sr
A a
TWO-WHEELED SCOOTERS ARE SINGLE TRACK VEHICLES. THEIR SAFE USE AND OPERATION
ARE DEPENDENT UPON THE USE OF PROPER RIDING TECHNIQUES AS WELL AS THE EXPER-
TISE OF THE OPERATOR.
EVERY OPERATOR SHOULD KNOW THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS BEFORE RIDING.
HE OR SHE SHOULD:
1.
2.
3.
4.
OBTAIN THOROUGH INSTRUCTIONS FROM A COMPETENT SOURCE ON ALL ASPECTS OF
SCOOTER OPERATION.
OBSERVE THE WARNINGS AND MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL.
OBTAIN QUALIFIED TRAINING IN SAFE AND PROPER RIDING TECHNIQUES.
OBTAIN PROFESSIONAL TECHNICAL SERVICE AS INDICATED BY THE OWNER'S MANUAL
AND/OR WHEN MADE NECESSARY BY MECHANICAL CONDITIONS.
Safe riding
1.
Always make pre-operation checks. Careful checks may help prevent an accident.
2. This scooter is designed to carry the operator only. No passengers.
3.
The failure of motorists to detect and recognize scooters in traffic is the predominating cause of auto-
mobile/scooter accidents. Many accidents have been caused by an automobile driver who did not see
the scooter. Making yourself conspicuous appears to be very effective in reducing the chance of this
type of accident.
Therefore:
a. Wear a brightly colored jacket.
b. Use extra caution when you approach and pass through intersections, since intersections are the
most likely places for scooter accidents.
C. Ride where other motorists can see you. Avoid riding in another motorist’s “blind spot”.
1-1
/N\ SAFETY INFORMATION
—
ER
6.
7.
8.
Many accidents involve inexperienced operators. In fact, many operators who have been involved in
accidents do not even have a current driver's license.
a. Make sure you are qualified. Also, only lend your scooter to experienced operators.
b. Know your skills and limits. Staying within your limits may help you to avoid an accident.
c. We recommend that you practice riding your scooter where there is no traffic until you have be-
come thoroughly familiar with your scooter and all of its controls.
Many scooter accidents have been caused by scooter operator errors. A typical error made by the op-
erator is veering wide on a turn due to EXCESSIVE SPEED or undercornering (insufficient lean angle
for the speed).
a. Always obey the speed limits and never travel faster than warranted by road and traffic conditions.
b. Always signal before turning or changing lanes. Make sure other motorists see you.
The operator's posture is important for proper control. The operator should keep both hands on the
handlebars and both feet on the footboard during operation to maintain control of the scooter.
Never ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
This scooter is designed for on-road use only. It is not suitable for off-road use.
Protective apparel
The majority of fatalities from scooter accidents are the result of head injuries. The use of a safety helmet
is the single most critical factor in the prevention or reduction of head injuries.
1.
2.
3.
Always wear an approved helmet.
Wear a face shield or goggles. Wind on your unprotected eyes could contribute to an impairment of vi-
sion which could delay seeing a hazard.
The use of substantial shoes, jacket, trousers, gloves, etc. is effective in preventing or reducing abra-
sions or lacerations.
/\ SAFETY INFORMATION
4. Never wear loose fitting clothing. It could catch on the control levers or wheels and cause injury or ac-
cident.
5. Never touch the engine or exhaust system during or after operation. They become very hot and can
cause burns. Always wear protective clothing that covers your legs, ankles, and feet.
Modification
Modifications made to the scooter not approved by Yamaha, or the removal of original equipment, may
render your scooter unsafe for use and may cause severe personal injury. Modifications may also make
your scooter illegal to use.
Loading and accessories
Adding accessories or cargo to your scooter can adversely affect stability and handling if the weight distri-
bution of the machine is changed. To avoid the possibility of an accident, extreme caution should be used
if adding cargo or accessories to your scooter. Use extra care if riding a scooter which has added cargo or
accessories. Here are some general guidelines to follow if loading cargo or adding accessories to your
scooter:
Loading
The total weight of the operator, accessories and cargo must not exceed the maximum load limit of 149 Ib.
(68 kg).
When loading within these weight limits, keep the following in mind:
1. Cargo and accessory weight should be kept as low and close to the scooter as possible. Be sure to dis-
tribute the weight as evenly as possible on both sides of the machine to minimize imbalance or insta-
bility.
1-3
/\ SAFETY INFORMATION
2. Shifting weights can create a sudden imbalance. Make sure that accessories and cargo are securely
attached to the scooter before riding. Recheck accessory mounts and cargo restraints frequently.
3. Never attach any large or heavy items to the handiebars, front forks, or front fender. These items can
create unstable handling or slow steering response.
Accessories
Genuine Yamaha accessories have been specifically designed for use on this scooter. Since Yamaha
cannot test all other accessories which may be available, you must personally be responsible for the prop-
er selection, installation and use of non-Yamaha accessories. You should use extreme caution when se-
lecting and installing any accessories.
Keep in mind these guidelines for mounting accessories in addition to those provided under “LOADINC”.
1. Never install accessories or carry cargo that would impair the performance of your scooter. Carefully
inspect the accessory before using it to make sure it does not in any way reduce ground clearance or
cornering clearance, limit suspension travel, steering travel or control operation, or obscure lights or re-
flectors.
a. Accessories fitted to the handlebar or the front fork area can create instability due to improper
weight distribution or aerodynamic changes. If accessories are added to the handlebar or front fork
area, they must be as lightweight as possible and should be kept to a minimum.
b. Bulky or large accessories may seriously affect the stability of the scooter due to aerodynamic ef-
fects. Wind may attempt to lift the scooter, or the scooter may become unstable in cross winds.
These accessories may also cause instability when being passed by or passing large vehicles.
c. Certain accessories can displace the operator from his or her normal riding position. This improper
position limits the freedom of movement of the operator and may limit control ability. Therefore
such accessories are not recommended.
1-4
/\ SAFETY INFORMATION
2. Caution must be used if adding electrical accessories. If these accessories exceed the capacity of the
scooters electrical system, an electric failure could result, which could cause a dangerous loss of lights
or engine power.
Gasoline and exhaust gas
1.
GASOLINE IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE:
a. Always turn off the engine when refueling.
b. Take care not to spill any gasoline on the engine or exhaust system when refueling.
c. Never refuel while smoking or in the vicinity of an open flame.
Never start the engine or let it run for any length of time in a closed area. The exhaust fumes are poi-
sonous and may cause loss of consciousness and death within a short time. Always operate your
scooter in an area that has adequate ventilation.
Always turn off the engine before leaving the scooter unattended and remove the ignition key. When
parking the scooter, note the following:
a. The engine and exhaust system may be hot. Park the scooter in a place where pedestrians or chil-
dren are not likely to touch these hot areas.
b. Do not park the scooter on a slope or soft ground; the scooter may fall over.
c. Do not park the scooter near a flammable source, e.g. a kerosene heater, or near an open flame.
The scooter could catch fire.
If you should swallow any gasoline, inhale a lot of gasoline vapor, or allow gasoline to get in your eyes,
see your doctor immediately. If any gasoline spills on your skin or clothing, immediately wash with soap
and water and change your clothes.

Further safe riding points for this model
1.
> o
Be sure to signal clearly in the following instances:
Turning left Turning right
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.
Slow down as you approach a corner or turn. Once you have completed a turn, accelerate slowly.
Be careful when passing parked cars. A driver might not see you and open a door in your path.
Street car rails, iron plates on road construction sites, and man-hole covers become extremely slippery
when wet. Slow down and cross them with caution. Keep the scooter upright. It could slide out from un-
der you.
The brake lining could get wet when you wash the scooter. After washing the scooter, check the brakes
before riding.
Always wear a helmet, gloves, trousers (tapered around the cuff and ankle so they do not flap), and a
bright colored jacket.
Do not carry too much luggage on the scooter. An overloaded scooter is unstable. Refer to “SAFETY
INFORMATION?” for instructions about carrying luggage. Use a strong cord to secure any luggage to
the luggage racks. A loose load will affect the stability of the scooter and could divert your attention
from the road.

Fuel tank capacity:
Total:
4.4 L (0.97 Imp gal, 1.16 US gal)
Your Yamaha engine has been de-
signed to use regular unleaded gaso-
line with a pump octane number
([R+M]2) of 86 or higher, or research
octane number of 91 or higher. If
knocking or pinging occurs, use a dif-
ferent brand of gasoline or premium
unleaded fuel. Unleaded fuel will give
you longer spark plug life and reduced
maintenance cost. If unleaded gasoline
is not available, then leaded regular
gasoline can be used.
Gasohol
There are two types of gasohol; gaso-
hol containing ethanol and that contain-
ing methanol. Gasohol containing
ethanol can be used if ethanol content
does not exceed 10%. Gasohol con-
taining methanol is not recommended
by Yamaha because it can cause fuel
system damage or vehicle perfor-
mance problems.

PRE-OPERATION CHECKS
EAUO1114
Owners are personally responsible for their vehicle's condition. Your scooter's vital functions can start to deteriorate quickly
and unexpectedly, even if it remains unused (for instance, if it is exposed to the elements). Any damage, fluid leak or loss of
tire pressure could have serious consequences. Therefore, it is very important that, in addition to a thorough visual inspec-
tion, you check the following points before each ride.

NOTE:
Pre-operation checks should be made each time the scooter is used. Such an inspection can be thoroughly accomplished
in a very short time, and the added safety it assures is more than worth the time involved.
1. The engine, exhaust pipe(s), and muffler(s) will be very hot after the engine has been run. Be careful not to
touch them or to allow any clothing item to contact them during inspection or repair.
2. If any item in the PRE-OPERATION CHECK is not working properly, have it inspected and repaired before op-
erating the scooter. If necessary ask a Yamaha dealer.

Engine break-in
There is never a more important period
in the life of your scooter than the peri-
od between zero and 1,000 km
(600 mi). For this reason we ask that
you carefully read the following materi-
al. Because the engine is brand new,
you must not put an excessive load on
it for the first 1,000 km (600 mi). The
various parts in the engine wear and
polish themselves to the correct oper-
ating clearances. During this period,
prolonged full throttle operation, or any
condition which might result in exces-
sive heating of the engine, must be
avoided.
EAU00456
1. O- 150 km (0 - 90 mi):
Avoid operation above 1/3 throttle.
Stop the engine and let it cool for 5
to 10 minutes after every hour of
operation. Vary the speed of the
scooter from time to time. Do not
operate it at one set throttle posi-
tion.

1. Spark plug gap
EAU00495
Spark plug inspection
The spark plug is an important engine
component and is easy to inspect. The
condition of the spark plug can indicate
the condition of the engine. The ideal
color on the white insulator around the
center electrode is a medium-to-light
tan color for a scooter that is being rid-
den normally. Do not attempt to diag-
nose any problems yourself. Instead,
take the scooter to a Yamaha dealer.
You should periodically remove and in-
spect the spark plug because heat and
deposits will cause the spark plug to
slowly break down and erode. If elec-
trode erosion becomes excessive, or if
carbon and other deposits are exces-
sive, you should replace the spark plug
with the specified plug.
Specified spark plug:
BPR6HS-10 (NGK)
Before installing the spark plug, mea-
sure the electrode gap with a wire
thickness gauge; adjust the gap to
specification as necessary.
Spark plug gap:
1.0 - 1.1 mm (0.039 - 0.043 in)
When installing the plug, always clean
the gasket surface and use a new gas-
ket. Wipe off any grime from the
threads and tighten the spark plug to
the specified torque.
Tightening torque:
Spark plug:
20 Nm (2.0 m-kg, 14 ft-Ib)
6-4
NOTE:
If a torque wrench is not available when
you are installing a spark plug, a good
estimate of the correct torque is 1/4 to
1/2 turn past finger tight. Have the
spark plug tightened to the specified
torque as soon as possible.

SCOOTER. Make sure the total
weight of the cargo, rider, and
accessories (fairing, saddle-
bags, etc. if approved for this
model) does not exceed the
maximum load of the scooter.
Operation of an overloaded
scooter could cause tire dam-
age, an accident, or even injury.
. Improper tire pressure greatly
affects tire life and handling.
Check the pressure of both tires
prior to each trip and adjust

pressure is too high, shocks
from the road will not be
damped and will be carried to
the frame and handlebars, thus
adversely affecting riding com-

tires will be deformed greatly,
thus shortening tire life. When
braking, the tires could slip over

could be damaged. Also, when
turning a corner or going
around a curve, the scooter
could easily turn over.

Troubleshooting
Although Yamaha scooters receive a
rigid inspection before shipment from
the factory, trouble may occur during
operation.
Any problem in the fuel, compression,
or ignition systems can cause poor
starting and loss of power. The trouble-
shooting chart describes a quick, easy
procedure for making checks.
If your scooter requires any repair,
bring it to a Yamaha dealer. The skilled
technicians at a Yamaha dealership
have the tools, experience, and know-
how to properly service your scooter.
Use only genuine Yamaha parts on
your scooter. Imitation parts may look
like Yamaha parts, but they are often
inferior. Consequently, they have a
shorter service life and can lead to ex-
pensive repair bills.

CLEANING AND STORAGE
EAU01012
A. CLEANING
Frequent, thorough cleaning of your
scooter will not only enhance its ap-
pearance but will improve its general
performance and extend the useful life
of many components.
1. Before cleaning the scooter:
a. Block off the end of the exhaust
pipe to prevent water entry; a plas-
tic bag and strong rubber band
may be used.
b. Make sure the spark plug and all
filler caps are properly installed.
2. If the engine case is excessively
greasy, apply degreaser with a
paint brush. Do not apply degreas-
er to wheel axles.
3. Rinse the dirt and degreaser off
with a garden hose. Use only
enough pressure to do the job.
EC000111
Excessive hose pressure may cause
water seepage and deterioration of
wheel bearings, front fork, brakes,
transmission seals and electrical
parts.
Many expensive repair bills have re-
sulted from improper high pressure
detergent applications such as
those available in coin-operated car
washers.
4. After riding on salted roads, wash
the scooter with cold water imme-
diately. Do not use warm water as
it increases the chemical reaction
of the salt.
5. Once the majority of the dirt has
been hosed off, wash all surfaces
With warm water and mild, deter-
gent-type soap. An old toothbrush
or bottle brush is handy for hard-
to-get-at places.

WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period?
The customer's responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services, non-
warranty repairs, accident and collision damages, and oil, oil filters, air filters, spark
plugs, and brake shoes.
What are some examples of “abnormal” strain, neglect, or abuse?
These terms are general and overlap each other in areas. Specific examples include:
Running the machine out of oil, sustained high-rpm, full-throttle, operating the
machine with a broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail, damage
or failure due to improper or careless transporation and or tie down. If you have any
specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your dealer for advice.
Does the warranty cover incidental costs such as towing or transportation due to
a failure?
No. The warranty is limited to repair of the machine itself.
May | perform any or all of the recommended maintenance shown in the Owner's
Manual instead of having the deaier do them?
Yes, if you are a qualified mechanic and follow the procedures specified in the Owner's
and Service Manual. We do recommend, however, that items requiring special tools
or equipment be done by a Yamaha Riva dealer.
Will the warranty be void or cancelled if | do not operate or maintain my new Riva
exactly as specified in the Owner's Manual?
No. The warranty on a new Riva cannot be “voided” or “cancelled.” However, if a
particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than as shown in the
Owner's Manual, that failure may not be covered under warranty.
What responsibility does my dealer have under this warranty?
Each Yamaha Riva dealer is expected to:
1. Completely set up every new machine before sale.
2. Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your satisfa-
tion at the time of sale, and upon your request at any later date.
3. Each Yamaha Riva dealer is held responsible for his setup, service and
warranty repair work.
15 the warranty transferable to second owners?
Yes. The remainder of the existing warranty can be transferred upon request. The
unit has to be inspected and re-registered by an authorized Yamaha Riva dealer for
the policy to remain effective.
