GASOLINES CONTAINING ALCOHOL
If you decide to use a gasoline containing alcohol (gasohol), be
sure it’s octane rating is at least as high as that recommended by
Honda. There are two types of ‘‘gasohol’’: one containing ethanol,
and the other containing methanol. Do not use gasohol that
contains more than 10% ethanol. Do not use gasoline containing
methanol (methyl or wood alcohol) that does not also contain
cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors for methanol. Never use
gasoline containing more than 5% methanol, even if it has
cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors.
Fuel system damage or engine performance 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 if
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 gasoline that contains
alcohol, or one that you think contains alcohol, switch to a
gasoline that you know does not contain alcohol.

High altitude operation
At high altitude, the standard carburetor air-fuel mixture will be excessively rich. Performance will decrease, and fuel consumption
will increase.
High altitude performance can be improved by specific modifications to the carburetor. If you always operate the engine at
altitudes higher than 1,830 m (6,000 feet) above sea level, have
your authorized Honda dealer perform these carburetor modifications.
Even with suitable carburetor jetting, engine horsepower will
decrease approximately 3.5% for each 305 m (1,000 feet) increase
in altitude. The affect of altitude on horsepower will be greater
than this if no carburetor modification is made.
Operation of the engine at an altitude lower than the carburetor is
jetted for may result in reduced performance, overheating, and
serious engine damage caused by an excessively lean air/fuel
mixture.

Oil alert system (Where equipped)
The Oil Alert System is designed to prevent engine damage
caused by an insufficient amount of oil in the crankcase. Before
the oil level in the crankcase can fall below a safe limit, the Oil
Alert System will automatically stop the engine (the engine switch
will remain in the ON position).
If the engine stops and will not restart, check the engine oil level
(page 6 ) before troubleshooting in other areas.
Circuit breaker (for electric starter)
The circuit breaker protects the battery charging circuit. A short
circuit or a battery connected in reverse polarity will trip the circuit
breaker.
The green indicator inside the circuit breaker will pop out to show
that the circuit breaker has switched off. If this occurs, determine
the cause of the problem, and correct it before resetting the circuit
breaker.

Used motor oil may cause skin cancer if repeatedly left in contact
with the skin for prolonged periods. Although this is unlikely
unless you handle used oil on a daily basis, it is still advisable to
thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water as soon as
possible after handling used oil.
Please dispose of used motor oil in a manner that is compatible
with the environment. We suggest you take it in a sealed container
to your local service station for reclamation. Do not throw it in the
trash, pour it on the ground, or down a drain.
