Q

SAFETY INFORMATION

SCOOTERS ARE SINGLE TRACK VEHICLES. THEIR SAFE USE AND OPERATION ARE DEPEN-

DENT 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:

1. OBTAIN THOROUGH INSTRUCTIONS FROM A COMPETENT SOURCE ON ALL ASPECTS

OF SCOOTER OPERATION.

2. OBSERVE THE WARNINGS AND MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS IN THE OWNER’S

MANUAL.

3. OBTAIN QUALIFIED TRAINING IN SAFE AND PROPER RIDING TECHNIQUES.

4. OBTAIN PROFESSIONAL TECHNICAL SERVICE AS INDICATED BY THE OWNER’S MANUAL

AND/OR WHEN MADE NECESSARY BY MECHANICAL CONDITIONS.

Safe riding

1. Always make pre-operation checks. Careful checks may help prevent an accident.

2. This scooter is designed to carry the operator and passenger.

3. 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: a. Wear a brightly colored jacket.

b. Use extra caution when approaching and passing through intersections, since intersections are the most likely places for scooter accidents to occur.

c. Ride where other motorists can see you. Avoid riding in another motorist’s blind spot.

Q

SAFETY INFORMATION

4. Many accidents involve inexperienced operators. In fact, many operators who have been involved in accidents do not even have a current driver’s license.

a. Make sure that you are qualified and that you only lend your scooter to other qualified operators.

b. Know your skills and limits. Staying within your limits may help you to avoid an accident.

c. 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.

5. 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 under cornering (insufficient lean angle for the speed).

a. Always obey the speed limit and never travel faster than warranted by road and traffic conditions.

b. Always signal before turning or changing lanes. Make sure that other motorists can see you.

6. The posture of the operator and passenger is important for proper control.

a. The operator should keep both hands on the handlebar and both feet on the footboard during operation to maintain control of the scooter.

b. The passenger should always hold onto the operator, the seat strap or grab bar, if equipped, with both hands and keep both feet on the passenger footrests.

c. Never carry a passenger unless he or she can firmly place both feet on the passenger footrests.

7. Never ride under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

8. 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.

1. Always wear an approved helmet.

5PJ-F8199-13.pm65

Q

SAFETY INFORMATION

2. Wear a face shield or goggles. Wind in your unprotected eyes could contribute to an impairment of vision which could delay seeing a hazard.

3. The use of a jacket, substantial shoes, trousers, gloves, etc., is effective in preventing or reducing abrasions or lacerations.

4. Never wear loose-fitting clothes, otherwise they could catch on the control levers or wheels and cause injury or an accident.

5. 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.

6. Passengers should also observe the above precautions.

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.

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, passenger, accessories and cargo must not exceed the maximum load limit of 143 kg (315 lb). When loading within this weight limit, keep the following in mind:

1. 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

1-3

1

Q

SAFETY INFORMATION

minimize imbalance or instability.

2. 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.

3. 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.

1. Never install accessories or carry cargo that would impair the performance 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.

a. 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.

b. 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 large vehicles.

c. 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.

Q

SAFETY INFORMATION

2. 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

1. GASOLINE IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: a. Always turn the engine off when refueling.

b. Take care not to spill any gasoline on the engine or exhaust system when refueling.

c. Never refuel while smoking or in the vicinity of an open flame.

2. 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.

3. 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: a. 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.

b. Do not park the scooter on a slope or soft ground, otherwise it may fall over.

c. Do not park the scooter near a flammable source (e.g., a kerosene heater, or near an open flame), otherwise it could catch fire.

4. If you should swallow any gasoline, inhale a lot of gasoline vapor, or allow gasoline to get into 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.

SAFETY INFORMATION

Further safe-riding points

1. Make sure to signal clearly when making turns.

EAU00023

5PJ-F8199-13.pm65

Turning left Turning right

2. 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.

3. Slow down as you approach a corner or turn. Once you have completed a turn, accelerate slowly.

4. Be careful when passing parked cars. A driver might not see you and open a door in your path.

5. 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.

6. The brake lining could get wet when you wash the scooter. After washing the scooter, check the brakes before riding.

7. Always wear a helmet, gloves, trousers (tapered around the cuff and ankle so they do not flap), and a bright colored jacket.

8. 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 1-3 in the “Loading and accessories” section for instructions on carrying a load.)

[(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.

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.

Engine break-in

There is never a more important period in the life of your engine than the period between 0 and 1,000 km

(600 mi). For this reason, you should read the following material carefully.

EAUT0003

0-150 km (0-100 mi)

Avoid operation above 1/3 throttle.

Stop the engine and let it cool for 5 to 10 minutes after every hour of operation. Vary the speed of the scooter from time to time. Do not operate it at one set throttle position.

Since the engine is brand new, do not put an excessive load on it for the first 1,000 km (600 mi). The various parts in the engine wear and polish themselves to the correct operating clearances. During this period, prolonged full-throttle operation or any condition that might result in engine overheating must be avoided.

150-500 km (100-300 mi)

Avoid prolonged operation above 1/

Proper loading of your scooter is important for several characteristics of your scooter, such as handling, braking, performance and safety. Do not carry loosely packed items that can shift. Securely pack your heaviest items close to the center of the scooter, and distribute the weight evenly from side to side. Properly check the condition and pressure of your tires. NEVER OVERLOAD

YOUR SCOOTER. Make sure that the total weight of the cargo, rider, passenger, and accessories (cowling, saddlebags, etc. if approved for this model) does not exceed the maximum load of the scooter. Operation of an overloaded scooter could cause tire damage, an accident, or even injury.

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

ECA00011 c C

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 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 scratched, use a quality plastic polishing compound after washing.

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 engine has cooled down.

ECA00012 c C

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 cleaner 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.

Always store your scooter in a cool, dry place and, if necessary, protect it against dust with a porous cover.

ECA00015 c C

8

8

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 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 cap.

Reporting safety defects

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash or could cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Yamaha

Motor Corporation, U.S.A. If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your dealer, or Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A.

To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotline toll-free at 1-800-424-9393 (or 366-0123 in Washington, D.C. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, D.C. 20590. You can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety from the Hotline.

YAMAHA EXTENDED SERVICE (Y.E.S.)

Keep your Yamaha protected even after your warranty expires with genuine Yamaha Extended Service (Y.E.S.).

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.

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.

In addition, Travel and Recreation Interruption Protection

(TRIP) is included at no extra cost. TRIP gives you up to

$150 reimbursement per occurrence for any reasonable expenses you incur because your Yamaha needs covered service: replacement vehicle rental, emergency towing, phone calls, even food and lodging when you are 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. coverage is honored at any authorized Yamaha dealer nationwide.

Y.E.S. coverage is transferable to a new owner if you sell or trade-in. That can make your Yamaha much more valuable!

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.

TRIP coverage right away, and you’ll rest easy knowing you’ll have strong factory-backed protection even after your

Yamaha Limited Warranty expires.

A special note:

If visiting your dealer isn’t convenient, contact Yamaha with your Primary ID number (your frame number). We’ll be happy to help you get the Y.E.S. coverage you need.
