SCOOTERS ARE SINGLE TRACK
VEHICLES. THEIR SAFE USE AND
OPERATION ARE DEPENDENT
UPON THE USE OF PROPER
RIDING TECHNIQUES AS WELL AS
THE EXPERTISE OF THE OPERATOR. EVERY OPERATOR SHOULD
KNOW THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS BEFORE RIDING THIS
SCOOTER.
HE OR SHE SHOULD:
● 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 NECES-
SARY BY MECHANICAL CONDITIONS.
Safe riding
● Always
make
pre-operation
checks. Careful checks may help
prevent an accident.
● This scooter is designed to carry
the operator only. No passengers.
● The failure of motorists to detect
and recognize scooters in traffic is
the predominating cause of automobile/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:
Wear a brightly colored jacket.
Use extra caution when approaching and passing through
intersections, since intersections are the most likely places
for scooter accidents to occur.
Ride where other motorists can
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
1-1
see you. Avoid riding in another
motorist’s blind spot.
Many accidents involve inexperienced operators. In fact, many operators who have been involved in
accidents do not even have a current driver’s license.
Make sure that you are qualified
and that you only lend your
scooter to other qualified operators.
Know your skills and limits.
Staying within your limits may
help you to avoid an accident.
We recommend that you practice riding your scooter where
there is no traffic until you have
become thoroughly familiar with
the scooter and all of its controls.
Many accidents have been caused
by error of the scooter operator. A
typical error made by the operator
is veering wide on a turn due to
EXCESSIVE SPEED or undercornering (insufficient lean angle for
●
SAFETY INFORMATION
the speed).
Always obey the speed limit and
never travel faster than warranted by road and traffic conditions.
Always signal before turning or
changing lanes. Make sure that
other motorists can see you.
● The posture of the operator is important for proper control. The operator should keep both hands on
the handlebar and both feet on the
footboard during operation to
maintain control of the scooter.
● Never ride under the influence of
alcohol or other 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.
● Always wear an approved helmet.
● Wear a face shield or goggles.
●
●
Wind in your unprotected eyes
could contribute to an impairment
of vision that could delay seeing a
hazard.
● The use of a jacket, substantial
shoes, trousers, gloves, etc., is effective in preventing or reducing
abrasions or lacerations.
● Never wear loose-fitting clothes,
otherwise they could catch on the
control levers or wheels and cause
injury or an accident.
● 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.
Modifications
Modifications made to this scooter not
approved by Yamaha, or the removal of
original equipment, may render the
scooter unsafe for use and may cause
severe personal injury. Modifications
may also make your scooter illegal to
use.
1-2
Loading and accessories
Adding accessories or cargo to your
scooter can adversely affect stability
and handling if the weight distribution of
the scooter is changed. To avoid the
possibility of an accident, use extreme
caution when adding cargo or accessories to your scooter. Use extra care
when riding a scooter that 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 75.0 kg (165 lb).
When loading within this weight limit,
keep the following in mind:
● Cargo and accessory weight
should be kept as low and close to
the scooter as possible. Make sure
to distribute the weight as evenly
as possible on both sides of the
scooter to minimize imbalance or
instability.
1
SAFETY INFORMATION
●
1
Shifting weights can create a sudden imbalance. Make sure that accessories and cargo are securely
attached to the scooter before
riding. Check accessory mounts
and cargo restraints frequently.
● Never attach any large or heavy
items to the handlebar, front fork,
or front fender. Such items can
create unstable handling or a slow
steering response.
Accessories
Genuine Yamaha accessories have
been specifically designed for use on
this scooter. Since Yamaha cannot test
all other accessories that may be available, you must personally be responsible for the proper selection, installation
and use of non-Yamaha accessories.
Use extreme caution when selecting
and installing any accessories.
Keep the following guidelines in mind,
as well as those provided under “Loading” when mounting accessories.
● Never install accessories or carry
cargo that would impair the perfor-
mance of your scooter. Carefully
inspect the accessory before using
it to make sure that it does not in
any way reduce ground clearance
or cornering clearance, limit suspension travel, steering travel or
control operation, or obscure lights
or reflectors.
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.
Bulky or large accessories may
seriously affect the stability of
the scooter due to aerodynamic
effects. Wind may attempt to lift
the scooter, or the scooter may
become unstable in cross
winds. These accessories may
also cause instability when
passing or being passed by
●
●
1-3
large vehicles.
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.
● Use caution when adding electrical accessories. If electrical accessories exceed the capacity of the
scooter’s electrical system an
electric failure could result, which
could cause a dangerous loss of
lights or engine power.
Gasoline and exhaust gas
● GASOLINE IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE:
Always turn the engine off when
refueling.
Take care not to spill any gasoline on the engine or exhaust
system when refueling.
Never refuel while smoking or in
the vicinity of an open flame.
●
●
●
●
SAFETY INFORMATION
●
●
Never start the engine or let it run
for any length of time in a closed
area. The exhaust fumes are poisonous 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 the engine off before
leaving the scooter unattended
and remove the key from the main
switch. When parking the scooter,
note the following:
The engine and exhaust system
may be hot, therefore, park the
scooter in a place where pedestrians or children are not likely to
touch these hot areas.
Do not park the scooter on a
slope or soft ground, otherwise it
may fall over.
Do not park the scooter near a
flammable source (e.g., a kerosene heater, or near an open
flame), otherwise it 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
the affected area with soap and
water and change your clothes.
EAU10350
Further safe-riding points
●
Make sure to signal clearly when
making turns.
1
●
●
●
●
1-4
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.
SAFETY INFORMATION
●
1
●
●
●
●
●
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.
Railroad crossings, streetcar rails,
iron plates on road construction
sites, and manhole covers become extremely slippery when
wet. Slow down and cross them
with caution. Keep the scooter upright, otherwise it could slide out
from under 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. Use a strong cord to
secure any luggage to the carriers.
A loose load will affect the stability
of the scooter and could divert
your attention from the road. (See
page 1-1.)

WARNING
Do not overfill the fuel tank, otherwise it may overflow when the
fuel warms up and expands.
Avoid spilling fuel on the hot engine.
ECA10070
CAUTION:
Immediately wipe off spilled fuel
with a clean, dry, soft cloth, since
Your Yamaha engine has been designed to use regular unleaded gasoline with a pump octane number
[(R+M)/2] of 86 or higher, or a research
octane number of 91 or higher. If
knocking (or pinging) occurs, use a
gasoline of a different brand or premium unleaded fuel. Use of unleaded fuel
will extend spark plug life and reduce
maintenance costs.
Gasohol
There are two types of gasohol: gasohol containing ethanol and that containing methanol. Gasohol containing
ethanol can be used if the ethanol content does not exceed 10%. Gasohol
3-6
containing methanol is not recommended by Yamaha because it can
cause damage to the fuel system or vehicle performance problems.

PRE-OPERATION CHECKS
EAU15591
The condition of a vehicle is the owner’s responsibility. Vital components can start to deteriorate quickly and unexpectedly,
even if the vehicle remains unused (for example, as a result of exposure to the elements). Any damage, fluid leakage or loss
of tire air pressure could have serious consequences. Therefore, it is very important, in addition to a thorough visual inspection, to check the following points before each ride.
NOTE:
Pre-operation checks should be made each time the vehicle is used. Such an inspection can be accomplished in a very short
time; and the added safety it assures is more than worth the time involved.

Although Yamaha scooters receive a
thorough inspection before shipment
from the factory, trouble may occur during operation. Any problem in the fuel,
compression, or ignition systems, for
example, can cause poor starting and
loss of power.
The following troubleshooting chart
represents a quick and easy procedure
for checking these vital systems yourself. However, should your scooter require any repair, take it to a Yamaha
dealer, whose skilled technicians have
the necessary tools, experience, and
know-how to service the scooter properly.
Use only genuine Yamaha replacement parts. Imitation parts may look like
Yamaha parts, but they are often inferior, have a shorter service life and can
lead to expensive repair bills.

SCOOTER CARE AND STORAGE
EAU26090
Care
While the open design of a scooter reveals the attractiveness of the technology, it also makes it more vulnerable.
Rust and corrosion can develop even if
high-quality components are used. A
rusty exhaust pipe may go unnoticed
on a car, however, it detracts from the
overall appearance of a scooter. Frequent and proper care does not only
comply with the terms of the warranty,
but it will also keep your scooter looking
good, extend its life and optimize its
performance.
Before cleaning
1. Cover the muffler outlet with a
plastic bag after the engine has
cooled down.
2. Make sure that all caps and covers
as well as all electrical couplers
and connectors, including the
spark plug cap, are tightly installed.
3. Remove extremely stubborn dirt,
like oil burnt onto the crankcase,
with a degreasing agent and a
brush, but never apply such products onto seals, gaskets and wheel
axles. Always rinse the dirt and degreaser off with water.
Cleaning
ECA10780
CAUTION:
● Avoid using strong acidic wheel
cleaners, especially on spoked
wheels. If such products are
used on hard-to-remove dirt, do
not leave the cleaner on the affected area any longer than instructed. Also, thoroughly rinse
the area off with water, immediately dry it, and then apply a corrosion protection spray.
● Improper cleaning can damage
windshields, cowlings, panels
and other plastic parts. Use only
a soft, clean cloth or sponge
with mild detergent and water to
clean plastic.
● Do not use any harsh chemical
products on plastic parts. Be
sure to avoid using cloths or
sponges which have been in
7-1
●
●
contact with strong or abrasive
cleaning products, solvent or
thinner, fuel (gasoline), rust removers or inhibitors, brake fluid, antifreeze or electrolyte.
Do not use high-pressure washers or steam-jet cleaners since
they cause water seepage and
deterioration in the following areas: seals (of wheel and swingarm bearings, fork and brakes),
electric components (couplers,
connectors,
instruments,
switches and lights), breather
hoses and vents.
For scooters equipped with a
windshield: Do not use strong
cleaners or hard sponges as
they will cause dulling or
scratching. Some cleaning compounds for plastic may leave
scratches on the windshield.
Test the product on a small hidden part of the windshield to
make sure that it does not leave
any marks. If the windshield is

After normal use
Remove dirt with warm water, a mild
detergent, and a soft, clean sponge,
and then rinse thoroughly with clean
water. Use a toothbrush or bottlebrush
for hard-to-reach areas. Stubborn dirt
and insects will come off more easily if
the area is covered with a wet cloth for
a few minutes before cleaning.
After riding in the rain, near the sea or
on salt-sprayed roads
Since sea salt or salt sprayed on the
roads during winter are extremely corrosive in combination with water, carry
out the following steps after each ride in
the rain, near the sea or on
salt-sprayed roads.
NOTE:
Salt sprayed on roads in the winter may
remain well into spring.
1. Clean the scooter with cold water
and a mild detergent after the en-
gine has cooled down.
ECA10790
CAUTION:
Do not use warm water since it increases the corrosive action of the
salt.
2. Apply a corrosion protection spray
on all metal, including chrome- and
nickel-plated, surfaces to prevent
corrosion.
After cleaning
1. Dry the scooter with a chamois or
an absorbing cloth.
2. Use a chrome polish to shine
chrome, aluminum and stainless-steel parts, including the exhaust system. (Even the thermally
induced discoloring of stainless-steel exhaust systems can be
removed through polishing.)
3. To prevent corrosion, it is recommended to apply a corrosion protection spray on all metal,
including chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces.
4. Use spray oil as a universal clean7-2
er to remove any remaining dirt.
5. Touch up minor paint damage
caused by stones, etc.
6. Wax all painted surfaces.
7. Let the scooter dry completely before storing or covering it.
EWA10940

WARNING
Make sure that there is no oil or
wax on the brakes or tires. If
necessary, clean the brake
discs and brake linings with a
regular brake disc cleaner or acetone, and wash the tires with
warm water and a mild detergent.
Before operating the scooter
test its braking performance
and cornering behavior.
ECA10800
CAUTION:
● Apply spray oil and wax sparingly and make sure to wipe off
any excess.
● Never apply oil or wax to any
rubber and plastic parts, but

NOTE:
Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on
what products to use.
EAU26300
Storage
Short-term
Always store your scooter in a cool, dry
place and, if necessary, protect it
against dust with a porous cover.
ECA10820
CAUTION:
● Storing the scooter in a poorly
ventilated room or covering it
with a tarp, while it is still wet,
will allow water and humidity to
seep in and cause rust.
● To prevent corrosion, avoid
damp cellars, stables (because
of the presence of ammonia)
and areas where strong chemicals are stored.
Long-term
Before storing your scooter for several
months:
1. Follow all the instructions in the
“Care” section of this chapter.
2. Drain the carburetor float chamber
by loosening the drain bolt; this will
prevent fuel deposits from building
up. Pour the drained fuel into the
7-3
fuel tank.
3. Fill up the fuel tank and add fuel
stabilizer (if available) to prevent
the fuel tank from rusting and the
fuel from deteriorating.
4. Perform the following steps to protect the cylinder, piston rings, etc.
from corrosion.
a. Remove the spark plug cap
and spark plug.
b. Pour a teaspoonful of engine oil
into the spark plug bore.
c. Install the spark plug cap onto
the spark plug, and then place
the spark plug on the cylinder
head so that the electrodes are
grounded. (This will limit sparking during the next step.)
d. Turn the engine over several
times with the starter. (This will
coat the cylinder wall with oil.)
e. Remove the spark plug cap
from the spark plug, and then
install the spark plug and the

spark plug electrodes while turning
the engine over.
6. Lubricate all control cables and the
pivoting points of all levers and
pedals as well as of the sidestand/
centerstand.
7. Check and, if necessary, correct
the tire air pressure, and then lift
the scooter so that both of its
wheels are off the ground. Alternatively, turn the wheels a little every
month in order to prevent the tires
from becoming degraded in one
spot.
8. Cover the muffler outlet with a
plastic bag to prevent moisture
from entering it.
9. Remove the battery and fully
charge it. Store it in a cool, dry
place and charge it once a month.
Do not store the battery in an ex-
cessively cold or warm place [less
than 0 °C (30 °F) or more than 30
°C (90 °F)]. For more information
on storing the battery, see page
6-13.
NOTE:
Make any necessary repairs before
storing the scooter.

YAMAHA EXTENDED SERVICE (Y.E.S.)
Keep your Yamaha protected even after your warranty
expires with genuine Yamaha Extended Service (Y.E.S.).
In addition, Travel and Recreation Interruption Protection
(TRIP) is included at no extra cost. TRIP gives you up to

away from home. This superb coverage goes into effect
when you purchase Y.E.S., so it applies to any warranty
repairs as well as covered repairs during your entire
Y.E.S. plan period.
Y.E.S. is designed and administered by Yamaha Motor
Corporation to provide maximum owner satisfaction. You
get uninterrupted factory-backed coverage for extra
peace of mind.
Y.E.S. is flexible. You choose the plan that’s right for
you: 12 months, 24 months, 36 months or, on certain
models, even 48 months beyond your warranty period.
Y.E.S. is designed and administered by the same
Yamaha people who handle your warranty – and it
shows in the comprehensive coverage benefits. There
are no mileage limitations. Coverage isn’t limited to
“moving parts” or the “drive train” like many other plans.
And Y.E.S. covers manufacturing defects just like the
warranty. See the sample contract at your Yamaha
dealer to see how comforting uninterrupted factorybacked protection can be.
3
Y.E.S. coverage is honored at any authorized Yamaha
dealer nationwide.
4
Y.E.S. coverage is transferable to a new owner if you
sell or trade-in. That can make your Yamaha much more
valuable!
5
This excellent Y.E.S. plan coverage is only available to
Yamaha owners like you, and only while your Yamaha is still
within the Yamaha Limited Warranty period. So visit your
authorized Yamaha dealer to get all the facts. He can show
you how easy it is to protect your investment with Yamaha
Extended Service.
You don’t have to pay anything for covered repairs.
There’s no deductible to pay, and repairs aren’t
“pro-rated.” You don’t have any “out-of-pocket” expenses
for covered repairs.
