SCOOTER SAFETY
AWARNING
* Scooter riding requires special
efforts on your part to ensure your
safety. Know these requirements
before you ride:
SAFE RIDING RULES
1. Always make a pre-ride inspection (page
46 ) before you start the engine. You
may prevent an accident or equipment
damage.
2.Many accidents involve inexperienced
riders. Most countries require a special
scooter riding test or license. Make sure
you are qualified before you ride.
NEVER lend your scooter to an
inexperienced rider.
3.Many automobile/scooter accidents
happen because the automobile driver
does not “see” the rider.
Make yourself conspicuous to help avoid
the accident that wasn't your fault:
e Wear bright or reflective clothing.
e Don't ride in another motorist's “blind
»”
4. Obey all national and local laws and
regulations.
® Excessive speed 1$ а factor in many
accidents. Obey the speed limits, and
NEVER travel faster than conditions
warrant.
e Signal before you make a turn or lane
change. Your size and maneuverability
can surprise other motorists.
5.Dont let other motorists surprise you.
Use extra caution at intersections,
parking lot entrances and exits, and
driveways.
6. Keep both hands on the handlebars and
both feet on the floor boards while riding.
A passenger should hold on to the
scooter or the operator with both hands
and keep both feet on the passenger
footrests.
7.Never leave your scooter unattended
with the engine running.
8. Moderate your speed when riding over
bumpy roads. Avoid hitting road hazards,
such as sharp bumps and holes, in the
road surface. These hazards can cause
loss of control or structural damage to
the vehicle.
PROTECTIVE APPAREL
ALWAYS wear a helmet.
You should also wear a face shield or goggles.
Clothes should be close-fitting.
Wear bright or reflective
clothing. Wear gloves.
Shoes should be close-fitting, have low heels
and offer ankle protection.
MODIFICATIONS

BRAKES
This scooter is equipped with a Combined
Brake System. Operating the rear brake
lever applies the rear brake and a portion of
the front brake. For full braking
effectiveness, use both the front and rear
brake lever simultaneously, as you would
with a conventional scooter braking system.
As with a conventional scooter braking
system, excessively hard application of the
brake controls may cause wheel lock,
reducing control of the scooter.
For normal braking, apply both the front
and rear brake lever to match your road
speed. For maximum braking, close the
throttle and firmly apply the front and rear
brake lever.
18
Front Brake
This scooter has a hydraulic front disc
brake.
As the brake pads wear, brake fluid level
drops.
There are no adjustments to perform, but
fluid level and pad wear must be inspected
periodically. The system must be inspected
frequently to ensure there are no fluid leaks.
If the control lever free travel becomes
excessive and the brake pads are not worn
beyond the recommended limit (page 80),
there is probably air in the brake system
and it must be bled. See your Honda dealer
for this service.
Brake fluid level:
AWARNING
* Brake fluid may cause irritation,
Avoid contact with skin or eyes. In
case of contact, flush thoroughly with
water and call a doctor if your eyes
were exposed.
* KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHIL-
DREN.
CAUTION:
* Handle brake fluid with care because
it can damage plastic and painted
surfaces.
* When adding brake fluid, be sure the
reservoir is horizontal before the cap
is removed or brake fluid may spill
out.
* Use only DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid from
a sealed container.
* Never allow contaminants such as
dirt or water to enter the brake fluid
reservoir.
19
Check that the fluid level is above the
LOWER level mark (1) with the scooter on
its centerstand, turn the handlebars all the
way to the left.
Brake fluid must be added to the reservoir
whenever the fluid level begins to reach the
LOWER level mark (1). Remove the
screws (2), reservoir cover (3), diaphragm
plate (4), and diaphragm (5). Fill the
reservoir with DOT 3 or DOT 4 BRAKE
FLUID from a sealed container up to the
upper level mark (6). Reinstall the
diaphragm, diaphragm plate, and cover.
Tighten the screws securely.
20
Other Checks:
Make sure there are no fluid leaks. Check
for deterioration or cracks in the hoses and
fittings.

Rear Brake
This scooter has a hydraulic rear drum
brake.
As the front brake pads wear, brake fluid
level drops.
Brake lever free play, fluid level and brake
shoe wear must be inspected periodically.
The system must be inspected frequently to
ensure there are no fluid leaks. If the
control lever free travel becomes excessive
and the brake shoes are not worn beyond
the recommended limit (page 81), there is
probably air in the brake system and it must
be bled. See your authorized Honda dealer
for this service.
Brake Fluid Level:
AWARNING
* Brake fluid may cause irritation.
Avoid contact with skin or eyes. In
case of contact, flush thoroughly with
water and call a doctor if your eyes
were exposed.
* KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHIL-
DREN.
CAUTION:
* Handle brake fluid with care because
it can damage plastic and painted
surfaces.
* When adding brake fluid, be sure the

is removed or brake fluid may spill
out.
* Use only DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid from
a sealed container.
* Never allow contaminants such as
dirt or water to enter the brake fluid
reservoir,
21
Check that the fluid level is above the
LOWER level mark (1) with the scooter in
an upright position. If the fluid level is near
the lower level line, it indicates fluid leakage.
See your authorized Honda dealer.
Other Checks:
Make sure there are no fluid leaks. Check
for deterioration or cracks in the hoses and
fittings.

COOLANT
Coolant Recommendation
The owner must properly maintain the
coolant to prevent freezing, overheating,
and corrosion. Use only high quality
ethylene glycol antifreeze containing
corrosion protection inhibitors specifically
recommended for use in aluminum engines.
(SEE ANTIFREEZE CONTAINER LABEL).
CAUTION:
* Use only low-mineral drinking water
or distilled water as a part of the
antifreeze solution. Water that is high
in mineral content or salt may be
harmful to the aluminum engine.
+ Using coolant with silicate inhibitors
may cause premature wear of water
pump seals or blockage of radiator
passages.
Using tap water may cause engine
damage.
The factory provides a 50/50 solution of
antifreeze and distilled water in this
motorcycle. This coolant solution is
recommended for most operating
temperatures and provides good corrosion
protection. A higher concentration of
antifreeze decreases the cooling system
performance and is recommended only
when additional protection against freezing
is needed. A concentration of less than 40/
60 (40 % antifreeze) will not provide proper
corrosion protection. During freezing
temperatures, check the cooling system
frequently and add higher concentrations of
antifreeze (up to a maximum of 60 %
antifreeze) if required.
25
Inspection
The reserve tank is located under the step
board.
Unlock and open the fuel tank lid (1) with
the ignition key.
Check the coolant level in the reserve tank
(2) while the engine is at the normal
operating temperature with the scooter in
an upright position. If the coolant level is
below the LOWER level mark (3), remove
the reserve tank cap (4) and add coolant
mixture until it reaches the UPPER level
mark (5). Always add coolant to the reserve
tank. Do not attempt to add coolant by
removing the radiator cap.
D— "7%
(1) Fuel tank lid
26
AWARNING
* Do not remove the radiator cap when
the engine is hot. The coolant is under
pressure and could scald you.
* Keep hands and clothing away from
the cooling fan, as it starts
automatically.
If the reserve tank is empty, or if coolant
loss is excessive, check for leaks and see
your Honda dealer for repair.

FUEL
Fuel Tank
The fuel tank is located under the step
board. Fuel tank capacity is:
12.0 2 (3.17 US gal, 2.64 Imp gal)
Unlock and open the fuel tank lid (1) with
the ignition key.
To open the fuel fill cap (2) insert the
ignition key (3) and turn the key clockwise
until it stops and rotate the fuel fill cap
counterclockwise until it clicks. Lift off the
fuel fill cap.
After refueling, be sure to tighten the fuel
fill cap firmly by turning it clockwise.
Make sure that the allow marks (4) on the
fuel fill cap and fuel tank is aligned.
Turn the key counterclockwise until it stops
and remove the key.
Use unleaded or low-lead petrol with a
research octane number of 91 or higher.
We recommend that you use unleaded
petrol because it produces fewer engine and
spark plug deposits and extends the life of
exhaust system components.
CAUTION:
+ If “spark knock” or “pinking” occurs
at a steady engine speed under
normal load, change brands of petrol.
If spark knock or pinking persists,
consult your Honda dealer. Failure to
do so is considered misuse, and dam-
age caused by misuse is not covered
by Honda’s Limited Warranty.

AWARNING
+ Petrol is extremely flammable and is
explosive under certain conditions.
Refuel in a well-ventilated area with
the engine stopped. Do not smoke or
allow flames or sparks in the area
where petrol is stored or where the
fuel tank is refueled.
+ Do not overfill the tank (there should
be no fuel in the filler neck (5)). After
refueling, make sure the fuel fill cap
is closed securely.
+ Be careful not to spill fuel when
refueling. Spilled fuel or fuel vapor
may ignite. If any fuel is spilled, make
sure the area is dry before starting
the engine.
+ Avoid repeated or prolonged contact
with skin or breathing of vapor.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF
CHILDREN.
Petrol Containing Alcohol
If you decide to use a petrol containing
alcohol (gasohol), be sure it’s octane rating
is at least as high as that recommended by
Honda. There are two types of “gasoho!”:
one containing ethanol, and the other con-
taining methanol. Do not use petrol that
contains more than 10 % ethanol. Do not use
petrol containing methanol (methyl or wood
alcohol) that does not also contain
cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors for
methanol. Never use petrol containing more
than 5 % methanol, even if it has cosolvents
and corrosion inhibitors.
NOTE:
* Fuel system damage or engine performa-
nce problems resulting from the use of
fuels that contain alcohol is not covered
under the warranty. Honda cannot
endorse the use of fuels containing
methanol since evidence of their
suitability is as yet incomplete.
Before buying fuel from an unfamiliar
station, try to find out 1f the fuel contains
alcohol. If it does, confirm the type and
percentage of alcohol used. If you notice
any undesirable operating symptoms
while using a petrol that contains alcohol,
or one that you think contains alcohol,
switch to a petrol that you know does not
contain alcohol.
*
29
ENGINE OIL
Engine Oil Level Check
Check the engine oil level each day before
riding the motorcycle.
The level must be maintained between the
upper (1) and lower (2) level marks on the
dipstick (3).
1. Start the engine and let it idle for a few
minutes.
2. Stop the engine and put the scooter on its
center stand on level ground.
3. After a few minutes, remove the oil filler
cap/dipstick (3), wipe it clean, and
reinsert the dipstick without screwing it
in. Remove the dipstick. The oil level
should be between the upper (1) and
lower (2) level marks on the dipstick.
30
4. If required, add the specified oil (see
page 73) up to the upper level mark. Do
not overfill.
5. Reinstall the oil filler cap/dipstick. Check
for oil leaks.
CAUTION:
* Running the engine with insufficient
oil can cause serious engine damage.

TUBELESS TYRES
This scooter is equipped with tubeless tyres,
valves, and wheel rims. Use only tyres
marked “T'UBELESS” and tubeless valves
on rims marked “TUBELESS TYRE
APPLICABLE”.
Proper air pressure will provide maximum
stability, riding comfort and tyre life.
Check tyre pressure frequently and adjust if
neccessary.
NOTE:
+ Tyre pressure should be checked before
you ride while the tyres are “cold”.
+ Tubeless tyres have some degree of
selfsealing ability if they are punctured,
and leakage is often very slow. Inspect
very closely for punctures, especially if
the tyre is not fully inflated.

may adversely affect handling.
* Do not install tube-type tyres on
tubeless rims. The beads may not seat
and the tyres could slip on the rims,
causing tyre deflation that may result
in a loss of vehicle control.
+ Do not install a tube inside a tubeless
tyre. Excessive heat build-up may
cause the tube to burst resulting in
rapid tyre deflation that may result in
a loss of vehicle control.
+ Replace the tyre if the sidewall is
punctured or damaged. Sidewall
flexing may cause repair failure and
tyre deflation that may result in a loss
of vehicle control.

AWARNING
+ If nails or rocks are allowed to remain
struck in the tyre’s tread surface, per-
formance will be reduced and later
repair may not fully restore the tyre’s
design safety level.
CAUTION:
* Do not try to remove tubeless tyres
without special tools and rim
protectors. You may damage the rim
sealing surface or disfigure the rim.

MAINTENANCE
e The Required Maintenance Schedule specifies how often you should have your scooter
served, and what things need attention. It is essential that your scooter be served as
scheduled to retain its high level of safety, dependability, and emission control
performance.
e 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 Honda dealer for recommendations applicable to your
individual needs and use.
60
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
The following Maintenance Schedule specifies all maintenance required to keep your scooter in peak operating
condition. Maintenance work should be performed in accordance with standards and specifications of Honda by

TRANSPORTING
AWARNING
* To prevent the possibility of a fire or
explosion when transporting the
scooter, always:
¢ Drain the fuel tank and carburetor.
e Carry the scooter upright in its
normal riding position to prevent oil
and battery electrolyte from leaking.
(1) Drain screw
94
Draining Fuel
Perform this operation only in a well-ventilated
area.
+ Petrol is extremely flammable and is
explosive under certain conditions.
Perform this operation in a well-
ventilated area with the engine
stopped. Do not smoke or allow
flames or sparks in the area where
petrol is drained or stored and where
the fuel tank is refueled.
. Stop the engine.
. Empty the fuel tank using a commercially
available hand siphon or other equivalent
way.
. Place the free end of the carburetor
draintube in a suitable container.
. Open the carburetor drain by turning the
drain screw (1) counter clockwise.
When all the fuel has drained, turn the
screw clockwise until tight.
CLEANING
Clean your scooter regularly to protect the
surface finishes and inspect for damage,
wear, and oil, brake fluid leakage.
CAUTION:
* High pressure water (or air) can
damage certain parts of the scooter.
Avoid spraying high pressure water (typical
in coin-operated car washes) at the
following areas:
Wheel Hubs
Ignition Switch
Carburetor
Brake Master Cylinder
Handlebar Switches
Muffler Outlet
Under Seat
1. After cleaning, rinse the scooter
thoroughly with plenty of clean water.
Strong detergent residue can corrode
alloy parts.
NOTE:
* 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.
* The inside of the headlight lens may be
clouded immediately after washing the
motorcycle. Moisture condensation inside
the headlight lens will disappear
gradually by lighting the headlight in
high beam. Run the engine while keeping
the headlight on.

run for several minutes. Several applications may be necessary to
restore normal braking performance,
AWARNING e no braking performance
+ Braking efficiency may be tempora-
rily impaired immediately after
washing the scooter. Anticipate
longer stopping distance to avoid a
possible accident.
TEST BRAKES
Painted Aluminum Wheel Maintenance
Aluminum may corrode from contact with
dirt, mud, or road salt. Clean the wheels
after riding through any of these
substances. Use 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 resulted.
Clean The Windshield
Using plenty of water, clean the windshield
with a soft cloth or sponge. (Avoid using
detergents or any kind of chemical cleaner
on the windshield.) Dry with a soft, clean
cloth.
NOTE:
* To avoid possible scratching or other
damage, use only water and a soft cloth
or sponge to clean the windshield.
For a dirtier windshield, use a diluted
neutral detergent with a sponge and plenty
of water. Make sure to wash off all the
detergent. (Detergent residue may cause
windshield cracks.)
Replace the windshield if scratches cannot
be removed and they obstruct clear vision.
CAUTION:
+ Do not let battery electrolyte, brake
fluid or other acid chemicals get on
the windshield and screen garnish.
They will damage the plastic.
97
STORAGE GUIDE
Extended storage, such as for winter,
requires that you take certain steps to
reduce the effects of deterioration from
non-use of the scooter. In addition,
necessary repairs should be made BEFORE
storing the scooter; otherwise, these repairs
may be forgotten by the time the scooter is
removed from storage.
STORAGE
1. Change the engine oil.
2. Make sure the cooling system is filled
with a 50/50% antifreeze solution.
3. Empty the fuel tank into an approved
petrol container using a commercially
available hand siphon or an equivalent
method. Spray the inside of the tank with
an aerosol rust-inhibiting oil.
Reinstall the fuel fill cap on the tank.
NOTE:
+ If storage will last more than one month,
carburetor draining is very important, to
assure proper performance after storage.
98
AWARNING
+ Petrol is extremely flammable and is
explosive under certain conditions.
Perform this operation in a well-
ventilated area with the engine
stopped. Do not smoke or allow
flames or sparks in the area where
petrol is drained or stored and where
the fuel tank is refueled.
4. To prevent rusting in the cylinder,
perform the following:
® Remove the spark plug cap from the
spark plug. Using tape or string, secure
the cap to any convenient plastic body
part so it is are positioned away from
the spark plug.
® Remove the spark plug from the
engine and store it in a safe place. Do
not connect the spark plug to the spark
plug cap.
* Pour a tablespoon (15—20 cm?) of
clean engine oil into the cylinder and
cover the spark plug hole with a piece
of cloth.
e Crank the engine several times to
distribute the oil.
* Reinstall the spark plug and spark plug
cap.
5. Remove the battery. Store in an area
protected from freezing temperatures
and direct sunlight.
Slow charge the battery once a month.
6. Wash and dry the scooter. Wax all
painted surfaces. Coat chrome with
rustinhibiting oil.
7. Inflate the tyres to their recommended
pressures. Place the scooter on blocks to
raise both tyres off the ground.
8. Cover the scooter (don’t use plastic or
other coated materials) and store in an
unheated area, free of dampness with a
minimum of daily temperature variation.
Do not store the scooter in direct sunlight.
99
REMOVAL FROM STORAGE
1. Uncover and clean the scooter.
2. Charge the battery as required. Install the
battery.
3. Drain any excess aerosol rust-inhibiting
oil from the fuel tank. Fill the fuel tank
with fresh petrol.
