Safety Guidelines
Safety Guidelines
Follow these guidelines to enhance your safety:
• Perform all routine and regular inspections
specified in this manual.
• Stop the engine and keep sparks and flame
away before filling the fuel tank.
• Do not run the engine in enclosed or partly
enclosed areas. Carbon monoxide in exhaust
gases is toxic and can kill you.
Always Wear a Helmet
It's a proven fact: helmets and protective
apparel significantly reduce the number and
severity of head and other injuries. So always
wear an approved motorcycle helmet and
protective apparel. ~ P. 9
Before Riding
Make sure that you are physically fit, mentally
focused and free of alcohol and drugs. Check
that you are wearing an approved motorcycle
helmet and protective apparel.

Take Time to Learn & Practice
Even if you have ridden other scooters, practice
riding in a safe area to become familiar with
how this scooter works and handles, and to
become accustomed to the scooter's size and
weight.

Safety Guidelines
We recommend that all riders take a certified
course approved by the Motorcycle Safety
Foundation (MSF). New riders should start with
the basic course, and even experienced riders
will find the advanced course beneficial.
For information about the MSF training course
nearest you, call the national toll-free number:
(800) 446-9227.
1m Other riding tips can be found in the You
and Your Motorcycle Riding Tips booklet that
came with your scooter.
Make Yourself Easy to See
Make yourself more visible, especially at night,
by wearing bright reflective clothing,
positioning yourself so other drivers can see
you, signaling before turning or changing lanes,
and using your horn when necessary.
Ride within Your Limits
Never ride beyond your personal abilities or
faster than conditions warrant. Fatigue and
inattention can impair your ability to use good
judgment and ride safely.
Ride Defensively
Always pay attention to other vehicles around
you, and do not assume that other drivers see
you. Be prepared to stop quickly or perform an
evasive maneuver.
4
Don't Drink and Ride
Alcohol and riding don 't mix. Even one
alcoholic drink can reduce your ability to
respond to changing conditions, and your
reaction time gets worse with every additional
drink. Don't drink and ride, and don't let your
friends drink and ride either.
Safety Guidelines
Keep Your Honda in Safe Condition
It's important to keep your scooter properly
maintained and in safe riding condition.
Inspect your scooter before every ride and
perform all recommended maintenance. Never
exceed load limits (~ P. 14), and do not modify
your scooter or install accessories that would
make your scooter unsafe (~ P. 13).
check the tightness of critical nuts and bolts,
and check the handlebar, brake levers, brakes,
and wheels. Ride slowly and cautiously.
Your scooter may have suffered damage that is
not immediately apparent. Have your scooter
thoroughly checked at a qualified service facility
as soon as possible.
•
If You are Involved in a Crash
Personal safety is your first priority. If you or
anyone else has been injured, take time to
assess the severity of the injuries and whether it
is safe to continue riding. Call for emergency
assistance if needed. Also follow applicable
laws and regulations if another person or
vehicle is involved in the crash.
If you decide to continue riding, first evaluate
the condition of your scooter. If the engine is
still running, turn it off. Inspect for fluid leaks,

I Cleaning the Battery Terminals
I Charging
1. Remove the battery. ~ P. 54
2. If the terminals are starting to corrode and
are coated with a white substance, wash with
warm water and wipe clean.
3. If the terminals are heavily corroded, clean
the terminals with a wire brush or sandpaper.
Wear safety glasses.
If you use electrical accessories that drain the
battery or you do not ride frequently, we
recommend that you charge the battery every
30 days using a charger designed specifically for
your Honda, which can be purchased from your
dealer. Read the information that came with
your battery charger and follow the instructions
on the battery. Avoid using an automobile-type
battery charger, as these can overheat a
motorcycle battery and cause permanent
damage.
Make sure the ignition switch is in the OFF
position before charging the battery.

Caring for Your Scooter
Caring for Your Scooter
Frequent cleaning and polishing is important to
ensure the life of your Honda. A clean scooter
makes it easier to spot potential problems.
In particular, seawater and salts used to prevent
ice on roads promote the formation of
corrosion. Always wash your scooter
thoroughly after riding on coastal or treated
roads.
Washing
Allow the engine, muffler, brakes, and other
high-temperature parts to cool before washing.
1. Rinse your scooter thoroughly using a garden
hose to remove loose dirt.
2. If necessary, use a sponge or a soft towel
with mild cleaner to remove road grime.
~Clean the headlight lenses, panels, and
other plastic components with extra care
to avoid scratching them.
Avoid directing water into the air cleaner,
muffler, and electrical parts.
3. Thoroughly rinse your scooter with plenty of
clean water and dry with a soft, clean cloth.
4. After the scooter dries, lubricate any moving
parts.
~Make sure that no lubricant spills onto the
brakes or tires. Brake discs, pads, drum or
shoes contaminated with oil will suffer
greatly reduced braking effectiveness and
can lead to a crash.
5. Apply a coat of wax to prevent corrosion.
~Avoid products that contain harsh
detergents or chemical solvents. These can
damage the metal, paint, and plastic on
your scooter.
Keep the wax clear of the tires and brakes.
~If your scooter has any matte painted
parts, do not apply a coat of wax to the
matte painted surface.

Catalytic Converter
Catalytic Converter
•
This scooter is equipped with an oxidation
catalytic converter. The catalytic converter
contain precious metals that serve as catalysts in
high temperature chemical reactions that
convert hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon
monoxide (CO) in the exhaust gasses into safe
compounds.
A defective catalytic converter contributes to air
pollution and can impair your engine's
performance. A replacement unit must be an
original Honda part or equivalent.
96
Follow these guidelines to protect your
scooter's catalytic converter.
• Always use unleaded gasoline. Leaded
gasoline will damage the catalytic converter.
• Keep the engine in good running condition.
A poorly running engine can cause the
catalytic converter to overheat causing
damage to the converter or the scooter.
• If your engine is misfiring, backfiring, stalling,
or otherwise not running properly, stop
riding and turn off the engine. Have your
scooter serviced as soon as possible.
High Altitude Carburetor Adjustment
High Altitude Carburetor
Adjustment
Your engine's air-fuel mixture becomes overly
rich when operated at high altitudes.
Above 6,500 feet (2,000 m), a rich mixture can
cause driveability problems, reduce engine
performance, and increase fuel consumption.
To compensate, you can have the carburetor
adjusted for high altitude riding. See your
dealer.
However, the carburetor must be returned to
standard factory specifications before riding
again at lower altitudes (below 5,000 feet,
1,500 m). See your Honda dealer.

Oxygenated Fuels
Oxygenated Fuels
•
Some conventional fuels blended with alcohol
or an ether compound are available in some
locales to help reduce emissions to meet clean
air standards. These gasolines are collectively
referred to as oxygenated fuels. If you plan to
use oxygenated fuel, check that it is unleaded
and meets the minimum octane rating and
blend requirement.
The following fuel blends are EPA-approved
and have been approved for use in your
scooter:
• Ethanol (ethyl alcohol) up to 10% by volume.
~Gasoline containing ethanol may be
marketed under the name Gasohol.
• Methanol (methyl alcohol) up to 5% by
volume that contain cosolvents and corrosion
inhibitors to protect the fuel system. Never
use a blend containing more than 5%.
98
If you accidentally fill your fuel tank with an
oxygenated fuel containing higher percentages,
you may experience performance problems. To
resolve the problem, have your dealer drain the
fuel tank and replace with the correct fuel.
Fuel system or performance problems resulting
from the use of an oxygenated fuel containing
higher percentages are not covered by your
warranty.
m+mil
Improper use of oxygenated fuels can damage metal,
rubber, and plastic parts of your fuel system.
