PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
 Batteries produce explosive hy-
drogen gas. Therefore, keep
sparks, flames, cigarettes, etc.,
away from the battery and pro-
vide sufficient ventilation when
charging it in an enclosed
space.
 Take care not to spill electrolyte
on the drive chain, as this may
weaken it, shorten chain life and
possibly result in an accident.
 KEEP THIS AND ALL BATTER-
IES OUT OF THE REACH OF

CHILDREN.
To check the electrolyte level
1. Place the vehicle on a level sur-
face and hold it in an upright posi-
tion.
TIP
Make sure that the vehicle is posi-
tioned straight up when checking the
electrolyte level.
2. Check the electrolyte level in the
battery.
