MAINTENANCE

The importance of maintenance

Maintaining your scooter properly is essential for safe, economical and trouble-free riding. It will also help reduce air pollution and maximize fuel economy.

To help you properly care for your scooter, the following pages in this Owner's Manual include a maintenance schedule to help you make sure your scooter is serviced at the appropriate intervals.

WARNING

If your scooter tips over or becomes involved in a crash, be sure your KYMCO 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 could result in a crash in which you could be seriously hurt or killed.

These instructions are based on the assumption that your 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 KYMCO dealer for recommendations applicable to your individual needs and use.

NOTE: Always follow the inspection and maintenance recommendations and schedules in this Owner's Manual.

WARNING

When performing maintenance on your scooter you may need to start the engine. Running your scooter's engine indoors or in a garage can be hazardous. Exhaust gas contains carbon monoxide, a gas that is colorless and odorless, and can cause death or severe injury.

Operate the engine only where these is adequate ventilation, preferably outdoors.

MAINTENANCE

Spark plug

Remove the carbon deposits from the spark plug with a small wire brush or a spark plug cleaning machine. After cleaning (or when installing a new spark plug) readjust the spark plug gap to specified limit by using a spark plug gap thickness gauge.

The spark plug should be replaced periodically.

Whenever removing the carbon deposits, be sure to observe the color of the removed spark plug's porcelain tip. This color tells you whether or not the standard spark plug is suitable for your type of riding. Under normal usage, a spark plug's porcelain tip should be light brown or tan color.

If the spark plug porcelain tip is very white or glazed appearing, then the spark plug has been operating too hot. In such a situation, you should replace the standard spark plug with a spark plug that has a colder heat range (usually a higher number; consult with your KYMCO dealer when selecting an alternate spark plug).

CAUTION

An improper spark plug may have an incorrect fit or heat range for your engine. This may cause severe engine damage which will not be covered under warranty. Never use a spark plug with an improper heat range, as severe engine damage could result.

Spark plug gap: 0.024 - 0.028 in

(0.6 - 0.7 mm)

MAINTENANCE

Coolant level inspection

The reserve tank is under right floorboard.

Check the coolant level through the inspection is at the normal operating temperature , with the scooter in an upright position.

If the coolant level is below the LOWER level reserve tank lid and then the reserve tank cap to add coolant mixture until it reaches the upper

WARNING

Add coolant to the reserve tank only. Do not attempt to add coolant by removing the radiator cap. Coolant in the radiator is under pressure and is very hot and can cause serious burns.

Side stand

Y our scooter's side stand is not only necessary when you park, but it contains an important safety feature. This feature cuts-off the ignition if you try to ride the scooter when the side stand is down.

Perform the following side stand inspection.

Interlock function check:

Check the side stand ignition cut-off system:

1.

Place the scooter on its center stand.

2.

Put the side stand up and start the engine.

3.

Lower the side stand. The engine should stop as you put the side stand down.

NOTE: If the side stand system does not operate as described, see your KYMCO dealer for service.

Brake fluid

Brake fluid level inspection

With the scooter in an upright position, check the front and rear fluid level.

The level should be above the lower level mark. If the level is at or below the lower level mark "L", check the brake pads for wear.

4

NOTE: Other checks - make sure there are no fluid leaks. Check for deterioration or cracks in the hoses and fittings.

WARNING

Worn brake pads should be replaced immediately. If the pads are not worn, have your brake system inspected for leaks. Do not ride your scooter unless the brakes are in perfect working order.

Brake fluid type: DOT 4

MAINTENANCE

WARNING

For appropriate brake action, make sure the groove of the adjusting nut is aligned with the pin in the brake arm.

Inspect the brake pad and shoe thickness to verify there is enough material for the brakes to function properly.

1.

If the wear indicator grooves in the front brake pads are no longer visible , it is an indication that the brake pads are worn and require replacement.

2.

If the wear indicator grooves in the rear brake pads are no longer visible , it is an indication that the brake pads are worn and require replacement.

WARNING

The brakes will wear quickly if the lever is continually applied during riding (dragging the brake).

Consult your KYMCO dealer for braking system service.

Battery

Your KYMCO scooter is equipped with a maintenance-free (sealed) type battery so it is not necessary to check the battery's electrolyte level or add distilled water.

NOTE: If your battery seems weak and/or is leaking electrolyte (causing hard starting or other electrical troubles), contact your KYMCO dealer immediately.

Fuse

When frequent fuse failures occur, it usually indicates a short circuit or an overload in the electrical system.

NOTE: See your KYMCO dealer for electrical system diagnosis and repair.

CAUTION

Your battery is a maintenance-free type and can be permanently damaged if the cap strip is removed.

WARNING

Never use a fuse with a different rating from that specified. Serious damage to the electrical system or a fire may result, causing a dangerous loss of lights or engine power.

MAINTENANCE

Tires

WARNING

Failure to follow these warnings may result in an accident due to tire failure. The tires on your scooter are a crucial link between your scooter and the road.

You and your passenger's personal safety are dependant upon the condition of your scooter's tires.

Follow these instructions:

NOTE: Check the tire inflation pressure and tire tread condition at the periods listed in the periodic maintenance schedule. For maximum safety and good tire life, the tire pressures should be inspected more often.

Check tire condition and pressure, and adjust the inflation pressure before each ride.

Avoid overloading your scooter.

Replace a tire when worn to the specified limit, or if you find any damage such as cuts or cracks.

Always use the proper size and type of tires as specified in this Owner's Manual.

Tire pressure

Insufficient air pressure in the tires not only accelerates tire wear but it also affects the stability of your scooter. Under-inflated tires make smooth cornering difficult and overinflated tires decrease the amount of tire in contact with the ground, which can lead to skids and loss of control. Make sure that the tire pressures on your scooter are within the specified limits at all times.

Balance the wheel after tire installation.

Read this section of Owner's Manual carefully.

NOTE: Tire pressure should only be adjusted when the tires are cold.

Failure to perform a reasonable break-in of the tires could cause tire slip and loss of control.

Use extra care when riding on new tires as the grip will be limited. Perform proper break-in of the tires, as stated in the break-in recommendation section of this manual. Avoid hard acceleration, hard cornering, and hard braking for the first 100 miles (160 km).

EMISSION CONTROL

Crankcase Emission Control System

Your

People GT 125i/200i/300i

engine is equipped with a closed crankcase system. Blow-by gases are routed back in to the combustion chamber via the intake system. This system does not allow the blow-by gases to enter the atmosphere.

Exhaust Emission Control System

The exhaust emissions from your

People GT 125i/200i/300i

scooter are controlled by engine design, factoryset fuel delivery, ignition settings, and exhaust system design. This system also includes a catalyzer in the exhaust system.

Noise Exhaust Emission Control System

The engine, intake and exhaust systems of your

People GT 125i

/

200i

/

300i

scooter were designed to comply with federal, state and local noise level requirements. Do not modify the engine ,intake or exhaust components, as doing so will affect compliance these noise level requirements.
