MAINTENANCE

Tires

Failure to follow these warnings may result in an acci-
dent due to tire failure. The tires on your scooter are a
crucial link between your scooter and the road. You and
your passenger's personal safety are dependant upon
the condition of your scooter's tires.
Follow these instructions:
     Check tire condition and pressure, and adjust the
inflation pressure before each ride.
     Avoid overloading your scooter.
     Replace a tire when worn to the specified limit, or
if you find any damage such as cuts or cracks.
     Always use the proper size and type of tires as
specified in this Owner's Manual.
     Balance the wheel after tire installation.
     Read this section of Owner's Manual carefully.
Failure to perform a reasonable break-in of the tires
could cause tire slippage and loss of control.
Use extra care when riding on new tires, as the grip
will be limited. Perform proper break-in of the tires, as
set forth in the break-in recommendation section of this
manual. Avoid hard acceleration, hard cornering, and
hard braking for the first 100 miles (160 km).
NOTE: Check the tire inflation pressure and tire tread con-
dition at the periods listed in the Periodic Maintenance
Schedule. For maximum safety and good tire life, the tire
pressures should be inspected more often.

Tire pressure

Insufficient air pressure in the tires not only accelerates tire
wear, but it also affects the stability of your scooter. Under-
inflated tires make smooth cornering difficult, and overinflated
tires decrease the amount of tire in contact with the ground,
which can lead to skids and loss of control. Make sure that the
tire pressures on your scooter are within the specified limits at
all times.
NOTE: Tire pressure should only be adjusted when the
tires are cold.
