WELCOME
The scooter presents you a challenge to master the machine, a challenge to adventure. You
ride through the wind, linked to the road by a vehicle that responds to your commands as no
other does. Unlike an automobile, there is no metal cage around you. Like an airplane, a pre-
ride inspection and regular maintenance are essential to your safety. Your reward is freedom.
To meet the challenges safely, and to enjoy the adventure fully, you should become
thoroughly familiar with this owner’s manual BEFORE YOU RIDE THE SCOOTER.
As you read this manual, you will find information that is preceded by a symbol. This
information is intended to help you avoid damage to your scooter, other property, or the
environment.
When service is required, remember that your Honda dealer knows your scooter best. If you
have the required mechanical “know-how” and tools, your dealer can supply you with an
Official Honda Service Manual to help you perform many maintenance and repair tasks.
Pleasant riding, and thank you for choosing a Honda!

SCOOTER SAFETY
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Your scooter can provide 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'll find many
helpful recommendations throughout this
manual. Following are a few that we
consider most important.
Always Wear a Helmet
It's a proven fact: helmets significantly
reduce the number and severity of head
injuries. So always wear an approved
motorcycle helmet and make sure your
passenger does the same. We also
recommend that you wear eye protection,
sturdy boots, gloves, and other protective
gear (page 2 ).
Make Yourself Easy to See
Some drivers do not see scooters because
they are not looking for them. 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.
Ride Within Your Limits
Pushing the limits is another major cause of
scooter accidents. Never ride beyond your
personal abilities or faster than conditions
warrant. Remember that alcohol, drugs,
fatigue and inattention can significantly
reduce your ability to make good
judgements and ride safely.
Don’t Drink and Ride
Alcohol and riding don’t mix. Even one
drink can reduce your ability to respond to
changing conditions, and your reaction time
gets worse with every additional drink. So
dont drink and ride, and don’t let your
friends drink and ride either.
Keep Your Bike in Safe Condition
For safe riding, it's 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 Honda for this
scooter. See page 5 for more details.
PROTECTIVE APPAREL
For your safety, we strongly recommend
that you always wear an approved
motorcycle helmet, eye protection, boots,
gloves, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt
or jacket whenever you ride. Although
complete protection is not possible, wearing
proper gear can reduce the chance of injury
when you ride.
Following are suggestions to help you
choose proper gear.
A WARNING
Not wearing a helmet increases the
chance of serious injury or death in a
crash.
Be sure you and your passenger
always wear a helmet, eye protection
and other protective apparel when you
ride.
Helmets and Eye Protection
Your helmet is your most important piece of
riding gear because it offers the best
protection against head injuries. A helmet
should fit your head comfortably and
securely. À bright-coloured helmet can
make you more noticeable in traffic, as can
reflective strips.
An open-face helmet offers some protection,
but a fullface helmet offers more. Always
wear a face shield or goggles to protect
your eyes and help your vision.
Additional Riding Gear
In addition to a helmet and eye protection,
we also recommend:
® Sturdy boots with non-slip 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 riding suit or jacket for
comfort as well as protection. Bright-
colored and reflective clothing can help
make you more noticeable in traffic. Be
sure to avoid loose clothes that could get
caught on any part of your scooter.
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.
LOAD LIMITS AND GUIDELINES
Your scooter has been designed to carry
you, one passenger and a limited amount of
cargo. When you add cargo or carry a
passenger, you may feel some difference
during acceleration and braking. But so long
as you keep your scooter well-maintained,
with good tyres and brakes, you can safely
carry loads within the given limits and
guidelines.
However, exceeding the weight limit or
carrying an unbalanced load can seriously
affect your scooter’s handling, braking and
stability. Non-Honda accessories, improper
modifications, and poor maintenance can
also reduce your safety margin.
The following pages give more specific
information on loading, accessories and
modifications.
Loading
How much weight you put on your scooter,
and how you load it, are important to your
safety. Anytime you ride with a passenger
or cargo you should be aware of the
following information.
Overloading or improper loading can
cause a crash and you can be
seriously hurt or killed.
Follow all load limits and other loading
guidelines in this manual.
Load Limits
Following are the load limits for your scooter:
Maximum weight capacity:
180 kg (397 Ibs)
Includes the weight of the rider, passenger, all cargo and all accessories
Maximum cargo weight:
11.5 kg (25.1 Ibs)
The weight of added accessories will reduce the maximum cargo weight you can carry.
Putting too much weight in individual storage compartments can also affect stability and
handling. So be sure to stay within the limits given below:
Maximum weight: . Left compartment:
in center compartment 10 kg (22 Ibs) + weight limit:
in right compartment 0.5 kg (1.1 Ibs) A 1.0 kg (2.0 Ibs)
in left compartment 1.0 kg (2.0 Ibs) -
Right compartment:
weight limit:
0.5 kg (1.1 Ibs)
Center compartment:
weight limit:
10 kg (22 Ibs) >
Loading Guidelines
Your scooter is primarily intended for
transporting you and a passenger.
If you wish to carry more cargo, check with
your Honda dealer for advice, and be sure
to read the information regarding
accessories on page 8.
Improperly loading your scooter can affect
its stability and handling. Even if your
scooter is properly loaded, you should ride
at reduced speeds whenever carrying cargo.
Follow these guidelines whenever you carry
a passenger or cargo:
® Check that both tyres are properly
inflated.
If you change your normal load, you may
need to adjust the rear suspension (page
27).
* To prevent loose items from creating a
hazard, make sure the center
compartment, right compartment and left
compartment are closed and that any
other cargo is securely tied down before
you ride away.
e Place cargo weight as close to the center
of the scooter as possible.
e Balance cargo weight evenly on both
sides.
Accessories and Modifications
Modifying your scooter or using non-Honda
accessories can make your scooter unsafe.
Before you consider making any
modifications or adding an accessory, be
sure to read the following information.
Improper accessories or modifications
can cause a crash in which you can be
seriously hurt or killed.
Follow all instructions in this owners
manual regarding accessories and
modifications.
Accessories
We strongly recommend that you use only
genuine Honda accessories that have been
specifically designed and tested for your
scooter. Because Honda cannot test all
other accessories, you must be personally
responsible for proper selection, installation
and use of non-Honda accessories. Check
with your dealer for assistance and always
follow these guidelines:
e Make sure the accessory does not
obscure any lights, reduce ground
clearance and banking angle, limit
suspension travel or steering travel, alter
your riding position or interfere with
operating any controls.
e Be sure electrical equipment does not
exceed the scooters electrical system
capacity (page 138). A blown fuse can
cause a loss of lights or engine power.
* Do not pull a trailer or sidecar with your
scooter. This scooter was not designed
for these attachments, and their use can
seriously impair your scooter’s handling.
Modifications
We strongly advise you not to remove any
original equipment or modify your scooter
in any way that would change its design or
operation. Such changes could seriously
impair your scooter’s handling, stability and
braking, making it unsafe to ride.
Removing or modifying your lights,
mufflers, emission control system or other
equipment can also make your scooter
illegal.

MAJOR COMPONENTS
(Information you need to operate this scooter)
SUSPENSION
Each shock absorber (1) has 5 adjustment
positions for different load or riding
conditions.
Use a pin spanner (2) to adjust the rear
shocks.
Always adjust the shock absorber position
in sequence (1-2-34-5 or 5-4-3-2-1).
Attempting to adjust directly from 1 to 5 or
5 to 1 may damage the shock absorber.
Position 1 is for light loads and smooth road
conditions. Positions 3 to 5 increase spring
preload for a stiffer rear suspension, and
can be used when the scooter is heavily
loaded. Be certain to adjust both shock
absorbers to the same position.
Standard position: 2
(1) Shock absorber
(2) Pin spanner
27
BRAKES
Combined Brake System (CBS)
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.
28
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
(FJSGOOA)
This model is also equipped with an Anti-
lock Brake System (ABS) designed to help
prevent wheel lock up during hard braking
on uneven or other poor surfaces while
running straight. Although the wheel may
not lock up —if you are braking too hard in a
turn the scooter can still lose traction,
causing a loss of control.
In some situations, a scooter with ABS may
require a longer stopping distance to stop
on loose or uneven surfaces than an
equivalent scooter without ABS.
ABS cannot make up for road conditions,
bad judgment, or improper operation of the
brakes. It is still your responsibility to ride
at reasonable speeds for weather, road
surface, and traffic conditions, and to leave
a margin of safety.
ABS is self-checking and always on.
e ABS may be activated by riding over a
sharp drop or rise in the road level.
It is important to follow the tyre
recommendations (page 44 ). The ABS
computer works by comparing wheel
speed. Non-recommended tyres can
affect wheel speed and may confuse the
ABS computer.
* ABS does not function at low speeds
(approximately 10 km/h (6 mph) or
below).
* ABS does not function if the battery is
discharged.
29
ABS Indicator Light
(FIS600A)
Normally, this light comes on when the
ignition is turned ON, and goes off after you
ride the scooter at speed above 10 km/h
(6 mph). If there is an ABS problem, the
indicator light comes on and remains on.
The ABS system does not operate when the
ABS indicator light is on.
If the ABS indicator light comes on while
riding, stop the scooter in a safe place and
turn off the engine.
Turn the ignition ON again. The light
should come on, and go off after you ride
the scooter at speeds above 10 km/h
(6 mph). If it does not go off, ABS is not
functioning, but the brakes still work the
Combined Brake System and provide
normal stopping ability. However, you
should have the system checked by Honda
dealer as soon as possible.
30
The ABS indicator light may come on if you
turn the rear wheel at high speed for more
than 30 seconds while the scooter is upright
on the stand. This is normal. Turn the
ignition OFF, then turn it ON. The indicator
should come on, then go off after you run
the scooter above 30 km/h (19 mph).
Both the front and rear brakes are the
hydraulic disc types.
As the brake pads wear, the 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 112 ),
there is probably air in the brake system
and it must be bled. See your Honda dealer
for this service.
Front Brake Fluid Level:
With the scooter in an upright position,
check the fluid level. It should be above the
LOWER level mark (1). If the level is at or
below the LOWER level mark (1), check
the brake pads for wear (page 112 ).
Worn pads should be replaced. If the pads
are not worn, have your brake system
inspected for leaks.
The recommended brake fluid is Honda
DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed container,
or an equivalent.

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).
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 scooter.
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.
33
Inspection If the reserve tank is empty, or if coolant
The reserve tank is inside of front fairing. loss is excessive, check for leaks and see
Check the coolant level in the reserve tank your Honda dealer for repair.
(1) 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 right compartment (page 61) and
reserve tank cap (4) and add coolant
mixture until it reaches the UPPER level
mark (2). Always add coolant to the reserve

Use unleaded petrol with a research octane
number of 91 or higher.
The use of leaded petrol will cause
premature damage to the catalytic
converter.
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
damage caused by misuse is not covered by
Honda's Limited Warranty.
37
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 “gasohol”:
one containing ethanol, and the other
containing 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.
38
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 petrol that contains alcohol, or one
that you think contains alcohol, switch to a
petrol that you know does not contain
alcohol.
ENGINE OIL
Engine Oil Level Check
Check the engine oil level each day before
riding the scooter.
The level must be maintained between the
upper (1) and lower (2) level marks on the
oil filler cap/dipstick (3).
1. Start the engine and let it idle for 3—5
minutes. Make sure the red low oil
pressure indicator goes off. If the light
remains on, stop the engine immediately.
2. Stop the engine and put the scooter on its
center stand on level ground.
3. After 2—3 minutes, remove the oil filler
cap/dipstick, wipe it clean, and reinsert
the oil filler cap/dipstick without
screwing it in. Remove the oil filler cap/
dipstick. The oil level should be between
the upper and lower marks on the oil
filler cap/dipstick.
4. If required, add the specified oil (see
page 97 ) up to the upper level mark. Do
not overfill.
5. Reinstall the oil filler cap/dipstick. Check
for oil leaks.
Running the engine with insufficient oil
pressure may cause serious engine damage.

TUBELESS TYRES
To safely operate your scooter, your tyres
must be the proper type and size, in good
condition with adequate tread, and correctly
inflated for the load you are carrying. The
following pages give more detailed informa-
tion on how and when to check your air
pressure, how to inspect your tyres for
damage, and what to do when your tyres
need to be repaired or replaced.
ECE
Using tyres that are excessively worn
or improperly inflated can cause a
crash in which you can be seriously
hurt or killed.
Follow all instructions in this owners
manual regarding tyre inflation and
maintenance.
40
Air Pressure
Keeping your tyres properly inflated
provides the best combination of handling,
tread life and riding comfort. Generally,
underinflated tyres wear unevenly,
adversely affect handling, and are more
likely to fail from being overheated.
Overinflated tyres make your scooter ride
more harshly, are more prone to damage
from road hazards, and wear unevenly.
We recommend that you visually check
your tyres before every ride and use a
gauge to measure air pressure at least once
a month or any time you think the tyres
might be low.
Tubeless tyres have some self-sealing
ability if they are punctured. However,
because leakage is often very slow, you
should look closely for punctures whenever
a tyre is not fully inflated.
Always check air pressure when your tyres
are “cold” — when the scooter has been
parked for at least three hours. If you check
air pressure when your tyres are “warm” —
when the scooter has been ridden for even
a few miles — the readings will be higher
than if the tyres were “cold”. This is normal,
so do not let air out of the tyres to match
the recommended cold air pressures given
below. If you do, the tyres will be
underinflated.
The recommended “cold” tyre pressures
are:
kPa (kgf/cm? psi)
Driver Front 200 (2.00, 29)
only Rear 225 (2.25, 33)
Driver and Front 200 (2.00 , 29)
one passenger | Rear 250 (2.50, 36)
Inspection
Whenever you check the tyre pressures,
you should also examine the tyre treads and
sidewalls for wear, damage, and foreign
objects:
Look for:
¢ Bumps or bulges in the side of the tyre or
the tread. Replace the tyre if you find any
bumps or bulges.
e Cuts, splits or cracks in the tyre. Replace
the tyre if you can see fabric or cord.
® Excessive tread wear.
Also, if you hit a pothole or hard object, pull
to the side of the road as soon as you safely
can and carefully inspect the tyres for
damage.
41
Tread Wear
Replace tyres before tread depth at the
center of the tyre reaches the following
limit:
Minimum tread depth
Front: 1.5 mm (0.06 in)
Rear: 2.0 mm (0.08 in)
(For Germany
German law prohibits use of tyres whose
tread depth is less than 1.6 mm.
42

(2) Wear indicator location mark
(2)
Tyre Repair
If a tyre is punctured or damaged, you
should replace it, not repair it. As discussed
below, a tyre that is repaired, either
temporarily or permanently, will have lower
speed and performance limits than a new
tyre.
A temporary repair, such as an external
tubeless tyre plug, may not be safe for
normal speeds and riding conditions. If a
temporary or emergency repair is made to a
tyre, you should ride slowly and cautiously
to a dealer and have the tyre replaced. If
possible, you should not carry a passenger
or cargo until a new tyre is installed.
Even if a tyre is professionally repaired with
a permanent internal patch plug, it will not
be as good as a new tyre. You should not
exceed 80 km/h (50 mph) for the first 24
hours, or 130 km/h (80 mph) at any time
thereafter. In addition, you may not be able
to safely carry as much weight as with a
new tyre. Therefore, we strongly
recommend that you replace a damaged
tyre. If you choose to have a tyre repaired,
be sure the wheel is balanced before you
ride.
Tyre Replacement
The tyres that came on your scooter were
designed to match the performance
capabilities of your scooter and provide the
best combination of handling, braking,
durability and comfort.
Installing improper tyres on your
scooter can affect handling and
stability. This can cause a crash in
which you can be seriously hurt or
killed.
Always use the size and type of tyres
recommended in this owner's manual.
The recommended tyres for your scooter
are:
Front: 120/80 — 14 M/C 58S
BRIDGESTONE
HOOP B03
DUNLOP
D305F
IRC
SS530F
Rear: 150/70— 13 M/C 64S
BRIDGESTONE
HOOP B02
DUNLOP
D305
IRC
SS530R
Whenever you replace a tyre, use one that
is equivalent to the original and be sure the
wheel is balanced after the new tyre is
installed.
Important Safety Reminders
* Do not install a tube inside a tubeless tyre
on this scooter. Excessive heat build-up
can cause the tube to burst.
* Use only tubeless tyres on this scooter.
The rims are designed for tubeless tyres,
and during hard acceleration or braking,
a tube-type tyre could slip on the rim and
cause the tyre to rapidly deflate.

If all keys are lost, the PGM-FI unit/ignition
control module must be replaced. To avoid
this possibility we recommend that if only
one key is left, you immediately have it
reproduced to ensure that a back-up is
available.
These keys contain electronic circuits that
are activated by the immobilizer system
(HISS). They will not work to start the
engine if the circuits are damaged.
e Do not drop the keys or set heavy objects
on them.
e Do not grind, drill or in any way alter the
original shape of the keys.
e Keep the keys away from magnetic
objects.
IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM (HISS)
HISS is the abbreviation of Honda Ignition
Security System.
The immobilizer system (HISS) protects
your scooter from theft. A properly-coded
key must be used in the ignition switch for
the engine to start. If an improperly-coded
key (or other device) is used the engine's
starting circuit is disabled.
When the ignition switch is turned ON and
the engine stop switch is at “ () ” (RUN),
the immobilizer system (HISS) indicator
lights for a few seconds, then goes off. If
the indicator remains on, it means the
system does not recognize the coding of the
key. Turn the ignition switch to OFF,
remove the key, reinsert and turn the
switch ON again.
49
The immobilizer system (HISS) indicator
can continue flashing every 2 seconds for
24 hours with the ignition switch off. After
that, the indicator automatically switches
off.
To activate the indicator function, carry out
the following:
1. Turn the ignition switch ON.
2. Have the odometer displayed (page 24 ).
3. Press the RESET button for more than
2 seconds.
The immobilizer system (HISS) indicator
will flash once to indicate that the
function has been activated.
50
4. Turn the ignition switch OFF. As you pull
out the key, the indicator will start to
blink.
When the ignition switch is turned ON
again, the indicator function will be
cancelled.
(1) Immobilizer system (HISS) indicator
(2) RESET button
If the system repeatedly does not recognize
the coding of your key, contact your Honda
dealer.
e The system may not recognize the key’s
coding if any other immobilizer key is
near the ignition switch. To make sure
the system recognizes the key code, keep
each immobilizer key on a separate ring.
* Do not attempt to alter the immobilizer
system (HISS) or add other devices to it.
Electrical problems could result, making
it impossible to start your scooter.
e Tf all keys are lost, the PGM-FI unit/
ignition control module must be replaced.

STARTING THE ENGINE
Always follow the proper starting procedure
described below.
This scooter is equipped with a side stand
ignition cut-off system. The engine cannot
be started if the side stand is down. A
running engine will shut off if the side stand
is lowered.
To protect the catalytic converter in your
scooter’s exhaust system, avoid extending
idling and the use of leaded petrol.
Your scooter’s exhaust contains poisonous
carbon monoxide gas. High levels of carbon
monoxide can collect rapidly in enclosed
areas such as a garage. Do not run the
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.
Do not use the electric starter for more than
5 seconds at a time. Release the starter
button for approximately 10 seconds before
pressing it again.

PARKING
1. After stopping the scooter turn the
ignition switch to the “OFF” position and
remove the key.
2. Use the center stand to support the
scooter while parked.
Park the scooter on firm, level ground to
prevent it from falling over.
If you must park on a slight incline, aim the
front of the scooter uphill to reduce the
possibility of rolling off the center stand or
overturning.
3. Lock the steering to help prevent theft
(page 54 ).
The exhaust pipe and muffler become
very hot during operation and remain
sufficiently hot to inflict burns if touched
even after shutting off the engine.
Make sure flammable materials such as
dry grass or leaves do not come in contact
with the exhaust system when parking
your scooter.

MAINTENANCE
THE IMPORTANCE OF
MAINTENANCE
A well-maintained scooter is essential for
safe, economical and trouble-free riding. It
will also help reduce air pollution.
To help you properly care for your scooter,
the following pages include a Maintenance
Schedule and a Maintenance Record for
regularly scheduled maintenance.
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.
84
If your scooter overturns or becomes
involved in a crash, be sure your Honda
dealer inspects all major parts, even if you
are able to make some repairs.
INT ЛааНИИ
Improperly maintaining this scooter or
failing to correct a problem before you
ride can cause a crash in which you
can be seriously hurt or killed.
Always follow the inspection and
maintenance recommendations and
schedules in this owner's manual.
MAINTENANCE SAFETY
This section includes instructions on some
important maintenance tasks. You can
perform some of these tasks with the tools
provided — if you have basic mechanical
skills.
Other tasks that are more difficult and
require special tools are best performed by
professionals. Wheel removal should
normally be handled only by a Honda
technician or other qualified mechanic;
instructions are included in this manual only
to assist in emergency service.
Some of the most important safety
precautions follow. However, we cannot
warn you of every conceivable hazard that
can arise in performing maintenance. Only
you can decide whether or not you should
perform a given task.
TCR
Failure to properly follow maintenance
instructions and precautions can
cause you to be seriously hurt or killed.
Always follow the procedures and
precautions in this owner's manual.
85
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
e Make sure the engine is off before you
begin any maintenance or repairs. This
will help eliminate several potential
hazards:
+ Carbon monoxide poisoning from
engine exhaust.
Be sure there is adequate ventilation
whenever you operate the engine.
+ Burns from hot parts.
Let the engine and exhaust system cool
before touching.
+ Injury from moving parts.
Do not run the engine unless instructed
to do so.
e Read the instructions before you begin,
and make sure you have the tools and
skills required.
e To help prevent the scooter from falling
over, park it on a firm, level surface, using
the center stand to provide support.
86
e Be sure the rear brake lock is set before
running the engine while the scooter is
supported by the center stand. This will
prevent the rear wheel from spinning and
avoid the possibility of someone being
injured from contacting the wheel.
e To reduce the possibility of a fire or
explosion, be careful when working
around petrol or batteries. Use only
nonflammable solvent, not petrol, to clean
parts. Keep cigarettes, sparks and flames
away from the battery and all fuel-related
parts.
Remember that your Honda dealer knows
your scooter best and is fully equipped to
maintain and repair it.
To ensure the best quality and reliability,
use only new genuine Honda parts or their
equivalents for repair and replacement.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Perform the Pre-ride Inspection (page 65 ) at each scheduled maintenance period.
I: INSPECT AND CLEAN, ADJUST, LUBRICATE OR REPLACE IF NECESSARY
C: CLEAN R:REPLACE A:ADJUST L: LUBRICATE

Engine Oil, Oil Filter and Oil Strainer
Screen
Engine oil quality is the chief factor
affecting engine service life. Change the
engine oil as specified in the maintenance
schedule (page 88 ).
When running in very dusty conditions, oil
changes should be performed more
frequently than specified in the
maintenance schedule.
Please dispose of used engine oil in a
manner that is compatible with the
environment. We suggest you take it in a
sealed container to your local recycling
center or service station for reclamation. Do
not throw it in the trash or pour it on the
ground or down a drain.
Used engine 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 possi-
ble after handling used oil.
100
Changing the oil filter requires a special oil
filter tool and a torque wrench. If you do not
have these tools and the necessary skill, we
recommend that you have your Honda
dealer perform this service.
If a torque wrench is not used for this
installation, see your Honda dealer as soon
as possible to verify proper assembly.
Change the engine oil with the engine at
normal operating temperature and the
scooter on its center stand to assure
complete and rapid draining.
1. Remove the oil filler cap/dipstick (1) 2. Place a drain pan under the crankcase

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 or
automobile surfaces.
They may contain harsh detergents or
chemical solvents that could damage the
metal, paint, and plastic on your scooter.
If your scooter is still warm from recent
operation, give the engine and exhaust
system time to cool off.
We recommend avoiding the use of high
pressure water spray (typical in coin-
operated car washes).
High pressure water (or air) can damage
certain parts of the scooter.
128
Washing the scooter
1. Rinse the scooter thoroughly with cool
water to remove loose dirt.
2. Clean the scooter with a sponge or soft
cloth using cool water.
Avoid directing water to 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 chemical
solvents off the scooter.
They will damage the plastic and painted
surfaces.
The inside of the headlight lens may be
clouded immediately after washing the
scooter. Moisture condensation inside the
headlight lens will disappear gradually by
lighting the headlight in high beam. Run the
engine while keeping the headlight on.

Finishing Touches
After washing your scooter, consider using
a commercially-available spray cleaner/
polish or quality liquid or paste wax to finish
the job. Use only a non-abrasive polish or
wax made specifically for motorcycles or
automobiles. Apply the polish or wax
according to the instructions on the
container.
If a surface on your scooter is chipped or
scratched, your Honda dealer has touch-up
paint to match your scooter’s colour. Be
sure to use your scooter’s colour code (page
92 ) when you buy touch-up paint.
130
Removing Road Salt
The salt contained in the road surface
freezing prevention medicine which a road
was sprayed with in winter, and the
seawater becomes the cause which rust
occurs in.
Wash your scooter by the following point
after it runs through such a place.
1. Clean the scooter using cool water (page
128).
Do not use warm water.
This worsens the effect of the salt.
2. Dry the scooter and the surface of the
metal is protected with the wax.
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.
Exhaust Pipe Maintenance
The exhaust pipe is stainless steel but may
become stained by oil or mud. If necessary,
remove heat stains with a liquid kitchen
abrasive.
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.
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.
Do not let battery electrolyte, brake fluid or
other acid chemicals get on the windshield
and screen garnish. They will damage the
plastic.
131
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 and filter.
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.
132
A WARNING
Petrol is highly flammable and
explosive. You can be bumed or
seriously injured when handling fuel.
e Stop the engine and keep heat,
sparks, and flame away.
e Refuel only outdoors.
e Wipe up spills immediately.
4. To prevent rusting in the cylinders,
perform the following:
* Remove the spark plug caps from the
spark plugs. Using tape or string,
secure the caps to any convenient
plastic body part so that they are
positioned away from the spark plugs.
* Remove the spark plugs from the
engine and store them in a safe place.
Do not connect the spark plugs to the
spark plug caps.
* Pour a tablespoon (15—20 cm”) of
clean engine oil into each cylinder and
cover the spark plug holes with a piece
of cloth.
* Crank the engine several times to
distribute the oil.
® Reinstall the spark plugs and spark
plug caps.
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.
133
REMOVAL FROM STORAGE
1. Uncover and clean the scooter.
2. Change the engine oil if more than 4
months have passed since the start of
storage.
3. Charge the battery as required. Install the
battery.
4. Drain any excess aerosol rust-inhibiting
oil from the fuel tank. Fill the fuel tank
with fresh petrol.
5. Perform all Pre-ride Inspection checks
(page 65).
Test ride the scooter at low speeds in a
safe riding area away from traffic.

CATALYTIC CONVERTER
This scooter is equipped with a catalytic
converter.
The catalytic converter contains precious
metals that serve as catalysts, promoting
chemical reactions to convert the exhaust
gasses without affecting the metals.
The catalytic converter acts on HC, CO, and
NOx. A replacement unit must be an
original Honda part or its equivalent.
The catalytic converter must operate at a
high temperature for the chemical reactions
to take place. It can set on fire any
combustible materials that come near it.
Park your scooter away from high grasses,
dry leaves, or other flammables.
A defective catalytic converter contributes
to air pollution, and can impair your engine's
performance. Follow these guidelines to
protect your scooter’s catalytic converter.
e Always use unleaded petrol. Even a small
amount of leaded petrol can contaminate
the catalyst metals, making the catalytic
converter ineffective.
e Keep the engine tuned-up.
e Have your scooter diagnosed and
replaced if it is misfiring, backfiring,
stalling or otherwise not running properly.
