Battery Connections for Electric Starter(applicable types)
Use a 12-volt battery with an ampere-hour rating of at least 18 Ah.
Be careful not to connect the battery in reverse polarity, as this will
short circuit the battery charging system. Always connect the
positive ( ) battery cable to the battery terminal before
connecting the negative ( ) battery cable, so your tools cannot
cause a short circuit if they touch a grounded part while tightening
the positive ( ) battery cable end.
A battery can explode if you do not follow the correct
procedure, seriously injuring anyone nearby.
Keep all sparks, open flames, and smoking materials
away from the battery.
Connect the battery positive ( ) cable to the starter solenoid
terminal as shown.
Connect the battery negative ( ) cable to an engine mounting
bolt, frame bolt, or other good engine ground connection.
Connect the battery positive ( ) cable to the battery positive ( )
terminal as shown.
Connect the battery negative ( ) cable to the battery negative
( ) terminal as shown.
Coat the terminals and cable ends with grease.

The throttle and choke control levers are provided with holes for
optional cable attachment. The following illustrations show
installation examples for a solid wire cable and for a flexible,
braided wire cable. If using a flexible, braided wire cable, add a
return spring as shown.
It is necessary to loosen the throttle lever friction nut when
operating the throttle with a remote-mounted control.

Carburetor Modifications for High Altitude Operation
At high altitude, the standard carburetor air-fuel mixture will be
too rich. Performance will decrease, and fuel consumption will
increase. A very rich mixture will also foul the spark plug and
cause hard starting. Operation at an altitude that differs from that
at which this engine was certified, for extended periods of time,
may increase emissions.
High altitude performance can be improved by specific
modifications to the carburetor. If you always operate your engine
at altitudes above 1,500 meters (5,000 feet), have your servicing
dealer perform this carburetor modification. This engine, when
operated at high altitude with the carburetor modifications for
high altitude use, will meet each emission standard throughout its
