SCOOTER SAFETY

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Your scooter can provide you with 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 will find many helpful recommendations throughout this manual. Here are some very important safety tips:

Wear a helmet

Scooter safety equipment starts with a quality helmet. One of the most serious injuries you can suffer in a crash is a head injury. Always wear a properly approved helmet. You should also wear suitable eye protection.

Make yourself easy to see

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.

Know your limits

Ride within the boundaries of your own skill at all times. Knowing these limits and staying within them will help you avoid accidents.

Keep your scooter in safe condition

For safe riding, it is 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 KYMCO for this scooter.

Inspect your scooter before riding

Do not forget to perform an entire safety inspection to ensure your, and your passenger's safety, before each ride.

Be extra safety conscious on bad weather days

Riding on bad weather days, especially wet ones, requires extra caution. Braking distance can double on a rainy day. Stay off of painted surfaces, manhole covers and greasy appearing areas on the pavement, as they can be especially slippery. Use extreme caution at railway crossings and on metal gratings and bridges. Whenever your are in doubt about the road conditions, slow down.

Modification

Modification of your scooter, or removal of original equipment may render the vehicle unsafe or illegal. Obey all applicable equipment regulations in your area.

SCOOTER SAFETY

PROTECTIVE APPAREL

For your safety, always wear an approved motorcycle or scooter helmet, eye protection, boots, gloves, long pants, and a longsleeved shirt or jacket whenever you ride your scooter.

Helmets and protection

Your helmet is your most important piece of riding gear because it offers the best protection against head injuries. Your helmet should fit your head comfortably and securely. Always wear a face shield or goggles to protect your eyes and aid your vision.

Additional riding gear

In addition to a helmet and eye protection, you should also use:

• Sturdy boots with nonslip 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 or scooter riding suit or jacket that has been designed for comfort, as well as protection. Bright colored and reflective clothing can help make you more noticeable in traffic. Be sure to avoid loose clothing that can get caught on any part of your scooter.

20

SECTION 3 -

OPERATION

Break-in recommendations

The first 600 miles (1,000 km) of riding are the most important in the life of your scooter. Following proper break-in procedures during this time will help ensure maximum life and performance from your new scooter. Proper break-in operation allows the machined surfaces to polish each other and mate smoothly.

Your scooter’s reliability and performance depend on your exercise of special care and restraint during the break-in period. It is especially important that you avoid operating the engine in a manner which could expose the engine parts to excessive heat.

The following guidelines should be followed during the breakin period:

Maximum throttle operation:

Initial 300 miles (600 km): ........ Less than 1/2 throttle

Up to 600 miles (1,000 km): ..... Less than 3/4 throttle

on these components during break-in to ensure that this mating process occurs. Do not, however, apply excessive load on the scooter's drive line.

Avoid constant low speed:

Operating the engine at constant low speed (light load) can cause parts to glaze and not seat in properly. Allow the engine to accelerate freely through the gears, without exceeding the recommended throttle openings.

Avoid using full throttle for the first 300 miles (600 km).

The initial service:

The 200 mile (300 km) initial service is the most important service your scooter will receive. Take extra care to observe

your scooter’s initial service in a timely fashion. During the break-in period, all of the engine components will have worn in, and all of the other parts will have seated in, so adjustments will be required. All fasteners will be tightened, and the contaminated engine oil will be replaced.

Vary the engine speed:

The engine speed should be varied and not held at a constant rate for long periods of time. This allows the parts to be "loaded" with pressure, and then unloaded, allowing the parts to cool.

This aids in the mating process of the engine and transmission components. It is essential that some stress be placed

NOTE: Completion of the 200 mile (300 km) initial service will ensure optimum service life and performance from your scooter. Do not delay in having this service performed once your scooter reaches this mileage.

21

OPERATION

The 200 mile (300 km) service should be performed as outlined in the maintenance schedule section of this owner's manual. Pay particular attention to the cautions and warnings in the Maintenance Schedule section.

Unless you have formal training as a service technician and have access to KYMCO technical reference materials, it is strongly suggested that you have the initial service performed by a KYMCO dealer.

Breaking in the new tires

New tires need proper break-in to assure maximum performance, just as your scooter's engine does. Wear in the tread surface by gradually increasing your cornering lean angles over the first 100 miles (160 km) before attempting maximum lean angles. Avoid hard acceleration, hard cornering, and hard braking for the first 100 miles (160 km).

Troubleshooting

It can be fustrating if your scooter fails to start ,or stops running while you are riding. In the rare instance this occurs, take a few moments to check the following items. This checklist covers some of the most common, simple problems which may arise, and which can be quickly resolved.

√√√√√ Do you have enough gasoline in the fuel tank?

√√√√√ Did you follow the correct procedure for starting the

engine?

√√√√√ Is the battery voltage low (you may need to kick start

your scooter)?

√√√√√ Is the main fuse in good condition?

Failure to break in your tires could cause the tires to slip and could result in your losing control of the scooter.

Use extra care when riding on new tires. Perform proper break-in of the tires as described in this Owner’s Manual, and avoid hard acceleration, hard cornering, and hard braking for the first 100 miles (160 km).

22

NOTE: Use this Owner’s Manual to check components and adjustments that are within your technical ability. If you cannot resolve the problem, do not hesitate to contact your

KYMCO dealer for assistance.

OPERATION

Pre-ride inspection (PRI)

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 to address it immediately, or have it corrected by your KYMCO dealer.

Improperly maintaining your 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.

5. Steering: Check for smooth operation in all steering positions (page 30).

6. Instruments: Make sure the speedometer, fuel level gauge and indicator lights function (page 31).

7. Lights and horn: Check that headlight, tail/brake light, turn signals, indicators and horn function properly (pages 31 & 32).

8. Chassis: Check for overall proper function (pages 32 & 33).

Performing pre-ride inspections does not take the place of regular maintenance. Follow the maintenance schedule recommendati ons on pages 42 - 44 of this manual.

1. Engine oil level: Add engine oil if required (page 24). Check for leaks.

2. Tires: Check condition and inflation pressure (pages 24 & 25).

3. Fuel level: Fill fuel tank when necessary (page 26). Check for leaks.

4.

Front and rear brakes: Check operation, making sure there is proper free-play at the left lever, and that there is brake fluid in the front brake fluid reservoir (pages 27 through

30).

After one month of use or 200 miles (300 km) of riding, which ever occurs first, contact your KYMCO dealer to perform an initial service on your scooter.

This initial service is the most important service in the life of your scooter, and includes checks and adjustments that will help ensure that your scooter operates efficiently and safely.

23

OPERATION

PRI - Engine oil level inspection

NOTE: Park your scooter on the main stand, on level ground.

L

Use extreme caution when performing the oil level inspection or any other checks if the scooter’s engine has been recently operated. The engine oil, engine case and muffler can become very hot creating a burn hazard.

PRI - Tire inspection

The condition of your scooter’s tires is vital for operational efficiency and your safety. Check the tires’ inflation pressure 2, the tread depth, and for damage before each ride.

1. Unscrew the dip stick 1, remove it and wipe it with a clean cloth

2. Reinsert the dip stick until the threaded part of the dip stick touches the engine case. Do not thread the dipstick into the engine case.

3. Remove the dip stick again and inspect the oil level on the stick. The engine oil level should be above the "L" mark but not higher than the "F" mark. Add or remove oil as required.

Do not overfill the engine with oil. Overfilling the engine can cause oil leaks and/or oil contamination of the air filter element. Always make sure the oil level is above the "L" mark but not higher than the "F" mark.

NOTE: Measure the pressure before riding, as the heat generated during operation may cause improper readings.

4. Check for damage 6 (blisters or cuts) in the side wall, or for significant flat spots 7 on the tires’ tread. Replace the

tire immediately if any damage of this type is present.

2. Inspect the tires for nails, screws and other objects 3 that may be imbedded into the rubber.

The tires on your scooter must be replaced if they:



Leak air (even at a slow rate)



Have any damage on the tread or side wall areas



Have been damaged by intrusion of objects, such as a nail



Are worn as evidenced by the wear indicators

Failure to replace a tire in poor condition will cause an unsafe riding condition. Replace worn or damaged tires immediately for your, and your passenger’s, safety.

Consult your KYMCO dealer for tire repair or replacement service.

When the fuel level gauge needle approaches “E” (indicating the tank is nearly empty), refill the tank with unleaded gasoline.

To open the fuel filler cap:

1. With the engine “OFF”, place the scooter on its main stand and open the seat (see page 14 of this manual).

4. Replace the fuel filler cap 3 and secure it to the fuel filler by rotating clockwise. Close the seat.

2. Rotate the cap 1 counterclockwise to access the fuel filler 2.

3. Add fuel (per the recommendations listed here).

Fuel recommendation

Use unleaded gasoline with a research octane number of

91 or higher. Unleaded gasoline will extend spark plug life.

Do not overfill the tank. There should be no fuel in the fuel filler neck. Excess fuel can contaminate the evaporative emission canister, resulting in poor drivability.

Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive. You can be burned or seriously injured while handling fuel.

* Stop the engine and keep heat, sparks, and flame away.

* Refuel only outdoors.

* Clean up fuel spills immediately.

26

OPERATION

PRI - Brake fluid inspection

The right brake lever on your People S scooter controls the front hydraulic brake.

NOTE:

On the People S scooter the left brake lever controls the rear mechanical drum brake.

Check the fluid level through the inspection window on the brake fluid master cylinder reservoir(s).

1. Verify that the fluid level is between the “L” mark 1 and the

“F” mark 2 in the brake fluid reservoir window. See the

MAINTENANCE section of this Owner’s Manual for additional information about the front brake fluid.

As the brake pads wear, the brake fluid level drops as the hydraulic system automatically compensates for the wear.

There are no adjustments to perform, but fluid level and pad wear must be inspected periodically to make sure the brakes will function properly.

The system must also be inspected for fluid leaks. Leaks can cause the system to lose pressure and not function.

To prevent damage to the brake system, only use DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed container. Never allow contaminants (dirt, water, etc.) to enter the brake fluid reservoir.

See your KYMCO dealer for this service.

Brake fluid can damage paint and plastic, so handle the brake fluid with care. When adding brake fluid, be sure that the reservoir is horizontal before removing the cover so you will not spill fluid onto the scooter.

27

OPERATION

PRI - Front brake pad wear inspection

Visually inspect the front brake pads on your scooter for wear.

The pads’ surface has grooves that will indicate the amount of life left in each pad. If the grooves are visible, there is adequate brake pad material. If the grooves are no longer visible, or their depth is severely reduced, the pads require replacement.

As the brake pads wear, the brake fluid level drops as the hydraulic system automatically compensates for the wear. The brake fluid level must be inspected at the same time you inspect the brake pads for wear.

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. Consult your

KYMCO dealer for any brake-related service.

Prolonged and repetitive use of the vehicle’s hydraulic brakes for high speed stops will cause overheating of the brake fluid and premature brake pad wear, which can cause unexpected loss of braking ability.

NOTE: Your scooter’s brake system components may differ slightly in appearance from the images in this manual.

PRI - Rear brake inspection

The left brake lever on your People S scooter controls the rear mechanical, drum-style brake. Before riding, you should inspect the rear brake shoe wear and the brake lever play.

Brake shoe wear inspection:

1. The rear drum brake is equipped with a brake show wear indicator. When the brake is applied, an arrow on the brake arm 1 moves towards reference marks 2 on the brake hub.

NOTE: See illustration on next page:

28

OPERATION

0.4 - 0.8 in

(10 - 20 mm)

2. If the arrow points to the reference marks when the rear brake is fully applied, the shoes are worn and require replacement.

1. Measure the free-play at the left brake lever end:

0.4 - 0.8 in (10 - 20 mm).

2. Use the cable adjuster on left brake lever perch for minor free play adjustment.

If the brake arm pointer is outside of the adjustment range markings the brake shoes must be inspected and may require replacement. If your scooter requires brake shoe replacement, see your KYMCO dealer for this service.

Brake lever inspection & adjustment:

Your People S scooter requires the proper brake lever freeplay so the brakes will be responsive and will not drag, causing premature wear to the brake pads. The free-play is the measured distance between the brake lever at rest and the point at which the brake first begins to engage.

NOTE: See next page for the remainder of the rear brake lever inspection & adjustment process.

29

OPERATION

3. Park the scooter on the main stand and rotate the adjusting nut on the brake arm clockwise to decrease the lever free play. Rotate the adjusting nut counterclockwise to increase the lever free play.

PRI - Steering & handlebar inspection

Before riding, inspect your scooter’s handlebars for damage, and make sure the steering’s side-to-side and up-and-down movement is smooth.

1. Apply the front brake (right lever) and press down and release pressure on the handlebar, listening for any abnormal noise.

2. As you press down and release, also feel for any looseness from the chassis transmitted to the handlebar.

3. Turn the handlebar from the center fully to the left and then fully to the right, feeling for any loose components and listening for any abnormal sounds.

Make sure the cutout on the adjusting nut 5

on the brake arm pin 4

Make sure the rear wheel turns freely after free play adjustment, so the brake will function properly and not wear prematurely.

If the steering does not move smoothly or feels obstructed, do not ride your scooter. See your KYMCO dealer immediately for repairs or adjustment.

30

OPERATION

PRI - Instrument inspection

Before you begin your ride, make sure the scooter’s instruments are functioning.

PRI - Horn & lights inspection

1. Does the speedometer 1 needle move as the scooter moves?

2. Does the fuel level gauge needle 2 indicate the fuel level?

3. Do the indicator lights 3 (turn signal and high-beam, for example) function?

1. Turn on the ignition switch to see if the headlight 4 and the tail light 5 are illuminated. Check the lenses for dirt or damage.

2. Squeeze each brake lever to make sure the brake lamp in the tail light 5 illuminates.

NOTE: Contact your KYMCO dealer for repair of your scooter’s instruments if they are not functioning properly.

To start your scooter using the electric starter motor, follow this procedure:

NOTE: Before starting, check the engine oil and fuel levels. Take the scooter off of the main or side stand.

1. Unlock the steering with the ignition switch key and turn the ignition switch to the “ON - ” position.

Lubrication points: Occasionally check and lubricate certain controls and points on the scooter as indicated in the periodic maintenance sch edule (see pages 42 - 44).

2. Apply the rear brake (left lever) .

33

OPERATION

The brake must be adjusted and functioning properly to lock the rear wheel during starting, or the scooter could accelerate away when the engine starts.

NOTE: The rear brake must be held for the starter motor to engage the engine. It is normal for the stop light to be illuminated during starting.

3. Press the starter button 1 without rotating the throttle grip.

NOTE: If the scooter’s engine is warm and does not start

immediately, rotate the throttle grip 2

to help the engine start.

NOTE: If the scooter has not been ridden for a long period of time it may be hard to start. Add fresh fuel and press the starter button several times in succession to try to start the engine. If the scooter does not start, contact your KYMCO dealer, as your scooter may need to have its fuel system cleaned and adjusted.

To prevent damage to the starter motor, do not operate the starter motor for more than five seconds at a time. If the scooter fails to start immediately, check the fuel level and the battery condition, and allow the starter motor to cool before attempting to start the engine again.

34

Once the scooter starts, the rear wheel may spin. To avoid injury, keep your body and clothing away from the rear wheel.

4. Allow a cold engine to warm up for 2 - 3 minutes before riding.

OPERATION

Do not press the starter button once the engine is running or the starter motor and engine may be damaged.

Starting the engine (kick start)

To start your scooter using the kick start lever 3, follow the electric starting procedure, but use the kick lever in place of the electric start button.

Once the scooter is started, fold the kick start lever back to its original position.

3. While squeezing the rear brake lever, kick down on the kick start lever without rotating the throttle grip.

NOTE: If the scooter’s engine is warm and does not start

immediately, rotate the throttle grip 4

to help the engine start.

Your scooter's exhaust emits poisonous carbon monoxide gas. High levels of carbon monoxide can collect rapidly in enclosed areas such as a garage. Do not run the scooter's 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.

35

OPERATION

Riding your scooter

NOTE: After starting, allow the engine oil to circulate before riding your scooter. Allow sufficient idling time after warm or cold engine start-up before applying load or revving the engine. This allows time for the lubricating oil to

reach all the critical engine components.

NOTE: Review the scooter safety recommendations on pag es 2 through 6 bef ore you ride.

You and your passenger should always wear appropriate safety apparel such as a helmet, eye protection, gloves and other protective clothing each time you ride the scooter.

Never wear any items that will adversely affect your safety.

Make sure flammable materials such as dry grass or leaves do not come into contact with the exhaust system when riding, idling, or parking your scooter.

1

the engine is running. You can damage the engine or the starter mechanism if you engage the starter motor when the engine is running.

36

1. Make sure the throttle is closed and the rear brake is engaged before moving the scooter off the main stand.

OPERATION

In hot weather the engine could overheat if it idles for a long period of time. Very slow speed traffic could also cause the scooter to overhead. To promote engine longevity, permit the engine to cool in these situations.

Avoid sudden acceleration and prolonged high speed use that can accelerate engine wear.

Moderate use will prolong the engine life of the scooter.

2. Mount the scooter from the left side and sit in an upright position on the seat. Place both hands on the handlebars and touch the ground with your left foot for stability.

4. You will control the scooter’s speed with the throttle grip.

3. Release the rear brake and slowly rotate the throttle grip

2 so that the engine power will be transmitted smoothly to the rear wheel.

Rotating the grip towards you 3

scooter’s speed.

Rotating the grip away from you 4

scooter’s speed.

37

OPERATION

5. Limit the maximum speed of your scooter during the first

600 miles (1,000 km) of operation. Keep the road speed

below 25 MPH (40 KPH) during this break-in period.

NOTE: Decreasing the scooter’s speed with a balanced application of both brake levers and a reduction of throttle will reduce the distance required to stop. Squeeze the levers lightly at first, and then increase the pressure when stopping.

Use the scooter’s turn signals to signal your intention to merge into traffic. Always scan around you and check the rear view mirrors so you are aware of other traffic.

Use caution as you merge into traffic, keeping to the right until you match the pace of the traffic.

Prolonged and repetitive use of the vehicle’s hydraulic brakes for high speed stops will cause overheating of the brake fluid and premature brake pad wear which can cause unexpected loss of braking ability.

6. Use both brake levers when slowing and stopping the scooter. Release the throttle when braking.

Avoid using just one brake to stop the scooter, as this will affect the tires’ grip.

Avoid sudden braking, as this will also affect the tires’ grip and can cause an accident.

38

7. When riding and turning the scooter, use smooth movements.

OPERATION

NOTE: At certain speeds your scooter will turn more effectively by leaning your body, than by applying pressure on the handlebars. Practice steering in an open, trafficfree area until you are familiar with the handling characteristics of your scooter.

Reduce your speed when riding on uneven or loose road surfaces. When riding downhill, use less throttle and brake intermittently to control the vehicle’s speed. These conditions reduce tire grip and can cause an accident.

8. As you approach a turn, or plan to stop, use the turn signals well in advance to alert other traffic of your intentions.

Reduce your speed when riding your scooter in the rain.

Wet road surfaces reduce tire grip and greatly increases the distance required for safe braking. A wet surface also reduces tires grip during cornering. Reduced tire grip will make it more difficult to control your scooter and may cause an accident.

Scan for other vehicles around you, turn your head and use the scooter’s mirrors. Slowly move to the right side of the road. Close the throttle, apply the brake smoothly, as the brake light will warn vehicles behind you that you are braking.

39

OPERATION

Parking your scooter

Use the following procedure and suggestions when parking your scooter.

1. Place the scooter on level ground.

9. When you stop the scooter, press the center of the turn signal indicator switch 5 to cancel the signal flashing. Turn the ignition switch to the “OFF position 6 to stop the engine and turn off the scooter’s electrical system.

Never operate the ignition switch while riding your scooter.

If the ignition switch is turned during riding it could turn off the engine and lights, possibly causing you to lose control of the scooter.

With the lights off, your scooter may not be visible to other traffic, and this could cause a traffic accident.

Only operate the ignition switch when the scooter is not moving.

40

2. Stand on the left side of the scooter and grasp the handlebar with your left hand, while grasping the side of the rear rack with your right hand. Step down on the foot pad of the main stand with your foot, while pulling up and back on the rear rack. This lifting motion will allow the scooter to rock backwards and up onto the main stand.

OPERATION

The scooter may fall over if it is not parked on level ground.

Make sure flammable materials such as dry grass or leaves do not come into contact with the exhaust system when parking your scooter.

Lock the steering of your scoot er (see pages 11 & 12) to reduce the risk of theft.

3. Stop the engine using the engine stop switch. Turn the handlebars to the left and rotate the ignition key in the ignition switch to the “ ” position 7 to lock the steering.

Do not park your scooter in a place that hinders traffic, or that is unsafe to you or to others.

SECTION 4 -

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.

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.

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.

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 there is adequate ventilation, preferably outdoors.

42

MAINTENANCE

Tires

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:

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.

Balance the wheel after tire installation.

Read this section of Owner's Manual carefully.

Failure to perform a reasonable break-in of the tires could cause tire slippage 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 set forth in the break-in recommendation section of this manual. Avoid hard acceleration, hard cornering, and hard braking for the first 100 miles (160 km).

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.

Tire pressure

Insufficient air pressure in the tires not only accelerates tire wear, but it also affects the stability of your scooter. Underinflated 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.

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

Front tire (rider only):

Rear tire (rider only):

22.0 PSI (1.50kg/cm

29.0 PSI (2.0 kg/cm

Front tire (rider & passenger): 25.0 PSI (1.75 kg/cm

Engine oil

Engine oil recommendation

Use a premium quality, 4-stroke engine oil to ensure longer service life of your scooter. Only use oils that have a SJ rating per the API service classification.

Engine oil capacity (50):

Engine oil capacity (125 & 200):

0.90 qt (0.85 L)

1.20 qt (1.10 L)

Engine oil viscosity: SAE 10W-40

If this viscosity is not available, select an alternative engine oil according to the chart shown below.

ENGINE OIL VISCOSITIES

Engine oil level inspection

Check the engine oil level each day before riding your scooter

(see page 24).

46

The engine and related components can become very hot.

Use care when inspecting or adjusting the oil level to avoid injury. If needed, let the engine and exhaust system cool before working in those areas.

Prolonged contact with used engine oil can cause skin cancer. Although rare, this possibility exists if you handle oil on a frequent basis. Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water as soon as possible after handling used oil.

Engine oil replacement

Engine oil quality is the primary factor affecting engine longevity. Change your scooter's engine oil as specified in the maintenance schedule (see page 42 - 44).

NOTE: When riding your scooter in very dusty conditions, oil changes should be performed more frequently than specified in the maintenance schedule.

NOTE: Always dispose of used engine oil in a environmentally responsible manner. You should take the drained oil in a sealed container to your local recycling center or service station for reclamation. Do not throw the oil in the trash, pour it on the ground, or pour it down a drain.

NOTE: Change the engine oil with the engine at normal operating temperature and with the scooter positioned on its main stand, to assure complete and rapid draining.

MAINTENANCE

3. Replace the drain bolt 1. Tighten it to the specified torque.

Oil drain plug torque: 18 lb-ft (25 N-m)

4. Add engine oil through the oil filler/dipstick hole.

Engine oil capacity (50): 0.90 qt (0.85 L)

Engine oil capacity (125 & 200): 1.20 qt (1.10 L)

Engine oil viscosity: SAE 10W-40

1. Place a suitable container (drain pan) under the left crankcase. Remove the drain bolt 1 to drain the oil.

Do not overfill the engine with oil. Overfilling the engine can cause oil leaks and/or oil contamination of the air filter element. Always make sure the oil level is above the "L" mark but not higher than the "F" mark on the dipstick.

2. Remove the oil filler/dipstick 2 from the right crankcase cover.

5. Refer to pag e 24: Wipe the dipstick off with a clean cloth and reinstall it in its hole, but do not thread it into the engine case. Push the dip stick in until it touches the case.

6. Remove the dip stick and visually inspect the oil level on the stick. The engine oil level should be above the "L" mark but not higher than the "F" mark. Add or remove oil as required.

7. Replace the oil filler/dipstick and tighten it securely.

47

MAINTENANCE

Transmission fluid change

1. Place the scooter on its main stand.

Transmission fluid type:

Transmission fluid capacity (50):

SAE 90

0.13 qt (0.12 L)

Transmission fluid capacity (125 & 200): 0.25 qt (0.21 L)

NOTE: The fill amount specified is the amount to use after completely draining the used transmission fluid.

2. Place a suitable container (drain pan) under the transmission case on its left side. Remove the drain bolt 1 to drain the fluid.

3. After the fluid has drained out, reinstall the drain bolt with a new sealing washer and tighten it to the specified torque.

Transmission fluid drain bolt torque: 15 lb-ft (20 N-m)

4. Remove the transmission fluid filler bolt from the filler hole 2.

5. Add the exact specified fluid through the fluid filler hole.Only fill the transmission so the fluid level stays below the filler hole 3.

Do not exceed the specified amount when adding transmission fluid. If too much fluid is added to the transmission case, it could be forced into the air cleaner assembly during operation, causing air filter contamination and poor engine performance.

Using the wrong transmission fluid type or viscosity may cause premature transmission component wear.

48

MAINTENANCE

Air cleaner filter element

The air cleaner filter element should be serviced at regular intervals. Service the element more often when riding in unusually wet or dusty areas.

1. Remove the six air cleaner cover screws 1.

4. Remove the air cleaner element (air filter) 3.

2. Remove the air cleaner case cover 2.

5. If lightly soiled, clean the filter 4 with compressed air. If very dirty (or if the filter is at the replacement interval per the maintenance schedule) discard the air cleaner element.

6. Install the cleaned or new air cleaner element. Use a KYMCO genuine air cleaner element or an equivalent air cleaner element specified for your scooter.

7. Complete the installation by reinstalling the air cleaner parts in the reverse order of removal.

Improper installation of the filter can cause water or dirt to enter the engine, causing premature wear.

Using the wrong air cleaner element or a non-KYMCO air cleaner element which is not of equivalent quality may cause premature engine wear or performance problems.

49

MAINTENANCE

Spark plug

Remove the carbon deposits from the spark plug with a small wire brush, a pick 1 or a spark plug cleaning machine. After cleaning (or when installing a new spark plug) readjust the spark plug gap 2 to the specified limit by using a spark plug gap thickness gauge. The spark plug should also be replaced if the sealing washer 3 has been compressed flat from multiple installations. The spark plug should be replaced periodically. Under normal usage, a spark plug's porcelain tip 4 should appear light brown or tan in 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).

Recommended spark plug

Spark plug type: CR7HSA

Spark plug gap 2

0.024 - 0.028 in

(0.6 - 0.7 mm)

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 may result.

50

MAINTENANCE

Fuel system & hoses

Check the fuel hoses and fittings for any signs of leakage.

Battery

Your KYMCO scooter is equipped with a maintenance-free

(sealed) battery. Therefore, 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 .

1. Check for leakage at the carburetor 1.

2. Check for leakage from the fuel hoses, clamps and joints 2.

3. Check for leakage at the fuel filter.

4. Check for leakage at the fuel tank.

6. Press the fuse and the holder clips back into the holder.

7. Close the fuse holder and set it back in place.

1. The chraging system and ingition system fuses (and a spare fuse) are located in the battery compartment. Remove the battery compartment cover - see page 52.

2. The charge fuse 1, the ignition fuse 2, and the spare fuse

3 are adjacent to the battery.

3. To replace a fuse, pull the fuse holder out of the battery compartment.

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

53

MAINTENANCE

Wire & cable cover inspection

The control cables and connection points of the scooter’s wire harness have rubber covers that protect them from dirt and moisture.

1. The covers 1 should be checked periodically to make sure they are in good condition .

2. The covers should also be pulled back 2 to make sure the electrical terminals, are not contaminated by moisture, dirt or corrosion that could affect their electrical integrity.

3. When the cover is pulled back, make sure the connectors tabs 3 are secured so the connectors will not seperate during operation.

Corrosion on electrical connectors can alter or disrupt the electrical function of your scooter. Use a quality, dielectric grease to lubricate and protect electrical connectors.

Always keep ignition switch OFF when servicing the electrical connectors. See your KYMCO dealer for any electrical system diagnosis and repair.

Brake fluid

(front brake)

Your scooter is equipped with a hydraulic front brake. Check the brake fluid level window on the master cylinder reservoir on the handlebars per the maintenance schedule.

Use a moist rag to clean debris off of the covers.

54

MAINTENANCE

Adding brake fluid:

1. Remove the two Phillips screws retaining the master cylinder cap. Remove the cap.

2. Add the specified type of brake fluid to bring the level above the “MIN” level in the window 4 (

see image on prior page

).

3. Wipe the master cylinder cap and gasket with a clean cloth and reinstall the cap, tightening the screws securely.

Brake fluid type: DOT 4

0.4 - 0.8 in

(10 - 20 mm)

Do not mix brake fluid types. Doing so may cause brake failure and could result in an accident.

Do not allow brake fluid to touch the scooter’s body work, as it will damage the painted surface.

2. Adjust the rear brake free-play so the pointer on the brake arm is within the adjustment range markings on the transmission case (see page 29 & 30).

4. Use the cable end adjuster to set the free-play (see page 30).

Brake lever & shoe adjustment

(rear brake)

Your scooter requires the proper lever free-play and brake shoe adjustment so the rear brake will be responsive and will not drag, causing premature wear to the brake shoes.

Note: The free-play is the measured distance between the brake lever at rest and the point at which the brake first begins to engage (see page 29).

1. Measure the free-play at the left brake lever end 5:

0.4 - 0.6 in (10 - 20 mm).

Make sure the rear wheel turns freely after free-play adjustment so the brake will function properly and not wear prematurely.

If the brake arm pointer is outside of the adjustment range markings, the brake shoes must be inspected and may need to be replaced. If your scooter requires brake shoe replacement, see your KYMCO dealer for this service.

55

MAINTENANCE

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 specifically designed for scooter, motorcycle, or automobile surfaces. Nonspecific cleaners may contain harsh detergents or chemical solvents that could damage the metal, paint, and plastic on your scooter.

NOTE: If your scooter is still warm from recent operation, give the engine and exhaust system time to cool off before washing. Avoid the use of high pressure water spray

(typical in coin-operated car washes), as this powerful spray can damage components on your scooter.

Washing your scooter

1. Rinse the scooter thoroughly with cool water to remove any loose dirt.

2. Clean the scooter with a sponge or soft cloth using cool water.

Avoid directing water at 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 other chemical solvents away from the scooter, as they will damage the plastic and painted surfaces.

4. After cleaning, rinse the scooter thoroughly with plenty of clean water. This rinsing is required to remove detergent residue which can corrode alloy parts.

5. Dry the scooter and then start the engine, allowing it to run for several minutes.

NOTE: The inside of the headlight lens may become clouded immediately after washing the scooter. Moisture condensation inside the headlight lens will disappear gradually as it is heated by the headlight. After washing, run the engine while keeping the headlight on to dissipate any condensation.

56

MAINTENANCE

6. Test the brakes before riding the scooter. Several applications of the brakes may be necessary to restore normal braking performance.

Removing road salt

The salt used in some communities to prevent road icing can become very corrosive to your scooter. Wash your scooter as soon as possible if it comes in contact with road salt (or sea water).

1. Clean the scooter using cool water (see page 56). Do not use warm water; as this will increase the corrosive effect of the salt.

2. Dry the scooter and protect painted and metal surfaces with wax or polish.

NOTE: Due to water on the brake components, braking efficiency may be temporarily impaired immediately after washing the scooter. Anticipate longer stopping distances to avoid a possible accident.

Finishing touches:

After washing your scooter, consider using a commerciallyavailable spray cleaner/polish or a quality liquid or paste wax to enhance and protect the paint's finish. Use only a nonabrasive polish or wax made specifically for scooters, motorcycles, or automobiles. Apply the polish or wax according to the instructions on the container.

Painted aluminum wheel maintenance

Even if protected by paint, aluminum may corrode from contact with dirt, mud, or road salt. Clean the scooter's wheels with a wet sponge and mild detergent. Avoid stiff brushes, steel wool, or cleaners containing abrasives or chemical compounds.

After washing, rinse with plenty of water and dry with a clean cloth. Apply touch-up paint to the wheels where damage has occurred.

Exhaust pipe maintenance

The exhaust system is stainless steel, but it can become stained by oil or mud. If necessary, remove heat stains with a liquid kitchen-counter abrasive.

57

MAINTENANCE

STORAGE GUIDE

Extended storage, such as for the winter months, requires that you take certain steps to reduce the effects of deterioration from the non-use of your scooter. Whenever possible, perform any necessary periodic maintenance or repairs before storage so the scooter will be in good condition for riding when it is removed from storage.

Storage

1. Change the engine oil and filter.

2. Drain the carburetor (if equipped) and empty the fuel tank into an approved gasoline container using a commercially available hand siphon or an equivalent method. Spray the inside of the tank with an aerosol rust-inhibiting oil. Close the fuel filler cap on the fuel tank

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. Refuel the scooter outdoors and wipe up any spills immediately.

3. To prevent rusting in the cylinder, perform the following:

Remove the spark plug cap from the spark plug, and use tape or string to secure the cap to any convenient plastic body part so that it is positioned away from the spark plugs.

Remove the spark plug from the engine and store it in a safe, dry place. Do not connect the spark plug to the spark plug cap.

Pour a tablespoon (15 - 20 cc) of 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.

4. Remove the battery. Store it in an area protected from freezing temperatures and direct sunlight. Slow charge the battery once a month (use a quality charger designed for use on a maintenance-free type battery).

5. Wash and dry the scooter. Wax all painted surfaces. Coat the chrome or bare aluminum parts with rust inhibiting oil.

6. Inflate the tires to their recommended pressures. Place the scooter on blocks to raise both tires off the ground.

7. Cover the scooter (do not use plastic or other coated materials) and store in an unheated area, free of excessive moisture, with a minimum of daily temperature variation. Do not store the scooter in direct sunlight, as the sun's UV rays can damage the body work and other components.

58

Removal from storage

1. Uncover and clean the scooter.

2. Change the engine oil if more than 1 month has passed since the start of storage.

3. Charge the battery as required (use a quality charger designed for use on a maintenance-free type battery). Install the battery.

4. Drain any excess aerosol rust-inhibiting oil from the fuel tank. Fill the fuel tank with fresh gasoline.

5. Perform all the pre-ride inspection checks ( see pages 23 -

33). Test ride the scooter at low speeds in a safe riding area, away from traffic.

EXHAUST EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM

KYMCO Clean-Air System

The KYMCO Clean-Air System is a secondary air suction system that helps the exhaust gases to burn more completely.

When the engine's exhaust is sent into the exhaust system, it contains some unused fuel. This exhaust is still hot enough to burn the unused fuel. The Clean-Air system introduces more air so the oxygen will then permit the unused fuel to burn in the exhaust system. This continued burning action uses up a great deal of the normally unused fuel and other gases, as well as changing a significant portion of the poisonous carbon monoxide into harmless carbon dioxide. The

Clean-Air system does not use any energy from the engine and does not affect the scooter's performance.
