● Become thoroughly familiar with all operating controls and their function before riding consult a IYM dealer regarding any control or function that you do not thoroughly understand.
● Never start the engine or operate it on a closed area for any length of time. Exhaust fumes are poisonous, and inhaling them can cause loss of consciousness and death within a short time. Always make sure that there is adequate ventilation.
● Before starting out, make sure that the side stand is up. If the side stand is not raised completely, it could contact the ground and distract he operator, resulting in a possible loss control.
Starting the engine
In order for the starting circuit cut-off systems to enable starting, one of the following condition must be met:
● The transmission is in gear with the clutch lever pulled.
● The transmission is in the neutral position.
● Before starting the engine check the function of the starting circuit cut-off systems according to the procedure described on page.
● Never ride with the side stand down.
1. Turn the key “ON” and make sure that the engine stop switch is set to “∩”.
The following warning lights and indicator light should come on for a few seconds, then go off.
● Neutral indicator light
● Turn signal indicator light
● High beam indicator light
● Engine trouble warning light if a warning or indicator light does not go off, have a IYM dealer check the system.
2. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
When the transmission is in the neutral position, the neutral indicator light should be on, otherwise have a IYM dealer check the electrical circuit.
3. Start the engine by pushing the start switch.
If the engine fails to start, release the start switch, wait a few seconds, and then try again,. Each starting attempt should be as short as possible to preserve the battery. Do not crank the engine more than 5 seconds on any one attempt.
For maximum engine life, never accelerate hard when the engine is clod!
1. Shift pedal
N. Neutral Position
Shifting gears lets you control the amount of engine power available for starting off, accelerating, climbing hills, etc.
The gear positions are shown in the illustration.
To shift the transmission into the neutral position, press the shift pedal down repeatedly until it reaches the end of its travel, and then slightly raise it.
● Even with the transmission in the neutral position, do not tow the motorcycle for long distances. The transmission is properly lubricated only when the engine is running. Inadequate lubrication may damage the transmission.
● Always use the clutch while changing gears to avoid damaging the engine transmission and drive train, which are not designed to withstand the shock of forced shifting.
Tips for reducing fuel consumption
Fuel consumption depends largely on your riding style. Consider the following tips to reduce fuel consumption:
● Shift up swiftly, and avoid high engine speed during acceleration.
● Do not rev the engine while shifting down, and avoid high engine speed with no load on the engine.
● Turn the engine off instead of letting it idle for an extended length of time (e.g., in traffic jams, at traffic lights or at railroad crossings).
There is never a more important period in the life of the your engine than the period between 0 to 1000 km. For this reason, you should read the following material carefully.
Since the engine the engine is brand new, do not put an excessive load on it for the first 1000 kms 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.
Avoid prolonged operation above 4500 r/min.
After every hour of operation, stop the engine, and then let it cool for five to ten minutes.
Vary the engine speed from time to time. Do not operate he engine at one set throttle position.
Avoid prolonged operation above 6000 r/min.
Rev the engine freely through the gears, but do not use full throttle at any time
At 1000 km of operation, the engine oil must be changed, the oil filter cartridge or element replaced, and the oil strainer cleaned.
1000 km and beyond
The vehicle can now be operated normally.
● Keep the engine speed out of the tachometer red zone.
● If any engine trouble should occur during the engine running-in period, immediately have a IYM dealer check the vehicle.
When parking, stop the engine, and then remove the key from the main switch.
● Since the engine and exhaust systems can become very hot, park in a place where pedestrians or children are not likely to touch them.
● Do not park on a slope or on soft ground, otherwise the vehicle may otherwise the vehicle may overturn.
Never park in an area where there are fire hazards such as grass or other flammable materials.
