    The immobilizer system

    In order to enhance theft protection, the scooter is equipped with a «PIAGGIO IM-

    MOBILIZER » electronic engine locking device that is activated automatically when

    the starter key is removed. Upon start-up, the «PIAGGIO IMMOBILIZER» system

    checks the starter key, and only if this key is recognised will the immobilizer system

    allow the scooter to be started.

    Keys (01_09, 01_10, 01_11)

    Two types of keys come with the vehicle. The key «A» with a brown grip is the pro-

    gramming key. Only one is supplied and it serves to memorise the code of the other

    keys or to allow the dealers to take various measures. For this reason it is advised

    that it be used only in exceptional circumstances. The key «B» (a copy is supplied),

    red in colour, is for normal use, and serves to:

    - engine start up

    - unlock the fuel tank cap

    Together with the keys comes a CODE CARD which is imprinted with the mechanical

    code of the keys.

    WARNING

    THE LOSS OF THE BROWN KEY PREVENTS LATER REPAIRS TO THE "PIAG-

    GIO IMMOBILIZER" SYSTEM AND TO THE ENGINE CONTROL UNIT.

    WARNING

    IT IS ADVISED THAT THE "CODE CARD" AND THE KEY WITH THE BROWN GRIP

    BE KEPT IN A SAFE PLACE (NOT ON THE VEHICLE).

    Immobilizerdevice enabled indicator led (01_12)

    The functioning of the «PIAGGIO IMMOBILIZER» system is shown by the flashing of

    the appropriate warning light «F», shown in the «Dashboard» section. In order to re-

    duce battery discharge, the indicator LED turns off automatically after 48 hours of

    uninterrupted functioning. Should the signal led system break down in its flashing

    function, give information about the type of problem to an Authorised Piaggio-Gilera

    Service Centre.

    Operation

    Every time the starter key is removed in the "OFF" or "LOCK" position, the safety

    system activates the immobilizer system. Turning the key to "ON" disables the engine

    lock, provided that the safety system recognises the code transmitted by the key. If

    the code is not recognised, turn the key first to "OFF" and then to "ON"; if the block

    remains try again with the other brown key. If it is still not possible to start the engine

    it is absolutely necessary to turn to an Authorised Piaggio-Gilera Service Centre

    that has the equipment necessary for diagnosis and repair of the system.

    When additional keys are required, please note that data storage (up to 3 keys max.)

    must be done on all keys, both new ones and existing ones. Turn directly to an Au-

    thorised Piaggio-Gilera Service Centre, bringing the brown key and all the red ones.

    The codes of keys not submitted for the new storage procedure are deleted from the

    memory. Any lost keys will therefore not be enabled to start the engine.

    WARNING

    WARNING

    EACH KEY HAS ITS OWN AND UNIQUE CODE, WHICH MUST BE STORED BY

    THE SYSTEM CONTROL UNIT.

    VIOLENT SHOCKS MAY AFFECT THE ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS OF THE

    KEY.

    THAT THE NEW OWNER GET POSSESSION OF THE KEY WITH THE BROWN

    GRIP (AS WELL AS ALL OTHER KEYS) AND THE «CODE CARD»

    Programming the immobilizer system

    In the following is described the procedure to follow to program the "PIAGGIO IM-

    MOBILIZER" system and/or enter other keys in the memory.

    Procedure start - brown key

    Insert the brown key into the key switch (in the «OFF» position), turning it to the

    «ON» position. After 1 - 3 seconds, turn the key to «OFF » again and pull it out.

    Intermediate step - red key

    After extracting the brown key, insert the red key within ten seconds and turn it im-

    mediately to the «ON» position. After 1-3 seconds, turn the key to "OFF" again and

    pull it out. Repeating this procedure, respecting the indicated times, a maximum of

    three red keys can be programmed.

    Final step - brown key

    After extracting the last red key, insert the brown key again and turn it to the «ON»

    position (perform this within ten seconds of the extraction of the previous key). Leave

    it in this position for 1 to 3 seconds and return it to the «OFF» position.

    Proper programming check

    Insert the brown key, disabling the transponder (i.e., by tilting the key hood by 90°),

    and turn the key to the «ON» position. Perform the engine start-up operation. Ensure

    that the engine does not start. Insert the red key and start up again. Check that engine

    starts.

    WARNING

    02_04

    Starting up the engine (02_04)

    The vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission system with a speed variator

    and centrifugal clutch. For this reason, the throttle must be slightly untwisted while the

    engine is being started; to start-off from stationary position, progressively twist the

    throttle grip.

    The vehicle is equipped with a fuel pump and a starter that switch on automatically as

    soon as the engine is started.

    In order to start the engine, it is necessary to pull either the rear brake lever "B" or the

    front brake lever "C", before pressing the starting button, "A ", so as to disengage the

    safety switches.

    Proceed as follows:

    1: Put the scooter on its stand "E"; check that the rear wheel is off the ground.

    2: Keep the throttle closed.

    3: Insert the key into the ignition switch, "D", and turn to the ON position.

    4: Push the starter button «A» after pulling the rear brake lever «B» or the front brake

    lever «C».

    CAUTION

    DO NOT CARRY OUT THESE OPERATIONS IN CLOSED AREAS SINCE EX-

    HAUST GASES ARE TOXIC.

    WARNING

    THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION MAKES THE REAR WHEEL TURN EVEN

    WHEN THE THROTTLE IS SLIGHTLY TWISTED. RELEASE THE BRAKE CARE-

    FULLY AFTER STARTING, AND THEN ACCELERATE GRADUALLY.

  • Page 27:

    CAUTION

    NEVER STRESS THE ENGINE AT LOW TEMPERATURES IN ORDER TO AVOID

    POSSIBLE DAMAGE. BE CAREFUL NEVER TO EXCEED THE MAXIMUM SPEED

    WHILE RUNNING DOWNHILL, IN ORDER TO AVOID DAMAGING THE ENGINE.

    IN ANY CASE, IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE ENGINE FROM PROLONGED EX-

    CESSIVE REVOLUTIONS, THE REVOLUTION LIMITER WILL BE ACTIVATED IF

    THE ENGINE SPEED EXCEEDS THE ESTABLISHED THRESHOLD.

    02_05

    Difficult start up (02_05)

    If there is a problem you can follow the instructions below:

    1. If the engine is flooded. Follow the same sequence of operations described above.

    Give full gas and use the starter button alternating five seconds of rotation with five

    seconds of full gas, because the operation of opening and closing of the gas valve

    causes further refilling of fuel into the cylinder. If after a few attempts it has not started,

    leave the motor be for a few minutes and then repeat the preceding operation; in any

    case do not persist for too long with the starter motor in the attempt to start the engine.

    As the last operation, remove the spark plug while turning on the starter motor in order

    to expel any excess fuel; then replace it and repeat the process from point 1.

    2. If the gas runs out.After having refilled the scooter, start it, using the starter switch

    «A» and keeping the gas hand grip at the minimum. If you cannot start the scooter

    using the above methods then turn to an Authorised Piaggio-Gilera Service Centre.

    3. If the engine overheats. Follow the same sequence of procedures, keeping the

    gas slightly open. If the scooter does not start even with the above methods, turn to

    an Authorised Piaggio-Gilera Dealer or Service Centre.

    4. If the battery is dead; starting with an auxiliary battery.

    If the battery is dead it is possible to start the engine by means of a connection to

    another battery, with cables capable of accepting high current and with clamps at the

    ends. If the auxiliary battery is installed in another scooter, do not allow the two scoot-

    ers to touch and position them both on the centre stand (if the other scooter has one).

    27

    2 Use

  • Page 28:

    Proceed as follows:

    a) Keeping all other systems off, start the scooter with the auxiliary battery and bring

    the engine speed to a level slightly above the minimum to ensure a good charge for

    the battery, then turn off the engine.

    b) Turn off everything and turn the scooters' key switch to "OFF."

    c) Connect the positive terminal (+) of the dead battery to the positive terminal (+) of

    the auxiliary battery and the negative terminal (-) of the dead battery to the negative

    terminal (-) of the auxiliary battery.

    d) Try to start the scooter by alternating 5 seconds of turning the starter motor with 5

    seconds of pause. If the motor does not start after 20" of using the start-up system,

    do not continue with the attempt, since the scooter might not start due to some other

    problem.

    e) Once the engine has started, keep the engine speed slightly above the minimum

    and proceed to disconnect the cables (one at a time and from both poles of the bat-

    teries) in reverse order from the connection: first the negative terminal (-) and then the

    positive (+). As soon as possible, check the electrolyte level (in the regular battery)

    and if necessary top it up with distilled water. If you do not know why the battery is

    empty, turn to an authorised Piaggio service centre for a check of the scooter's

    electrical system.

    02_06

    Stopping the engine (02_06)

    Stop acceleration, then turn the key switch "D" to "OFF " to turn off the engine (ex-

    tractable key).

    WARNING

    AFTER A LONG DISTANCE COVERED AT THE MAXIMUM SPEED, DO NOT STOP

    THE ENGINE IMMEDIATELY, BUT LET IT RUN AT IDLE FOR A FEW SECONDS.

    CAUTION

    WHEN PARKING THE VEHICLE, DUE TO THE HIGH TEMPERATURES THE CAT-

    ALYTIC CONVERTER CAN REACH, ALWAYS BE CAREFUL THAT THE MUF-

    FLER DOES NOT COME INTO CONTACT WITH FLAMMABLE MATERIALS, TO

    AVOID SERIOUS BURNS.

    CAUTION

    DO NOT SWITCH OFF THE ENGINE WHILE THE VEHICLE IS MOVING. UN-

    BURNED FUEL COULD ENTER THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER AND BURN,

    CAUSING IT TO OVERHEAT AND POSSIBLY DESTROYING IT.

    Automatic transmission

    To ensure simple, pleasurable riding, the vehicle is equipped with automatic trans-

    mission with regulator and centrifugal clutch. The system is designed to give the best

    possible performance in terms of both acceleration and consumption, on level ground

    and uphill, thanks to the adjustments made to engine speed and transmitted torque.

    If you have to stop on an uphill slope (traffic lights, traffic jam, etc.) only use the brake

    to keep the vehicle still, leaving the motor running at idling speed. Using the motor to

    keep the vehicle still can cause the clutch to overheat. This problem is due to the

    29

    2 Use

  • Page 30:

    friction of the clutch parts on the clutch bell. It is therefore recommended to avoid

    conditions of prolonged clutch slippage leading to clutch overheating (for example, as

    well as the situation described above, riding uphill fully laden on steep slopes or start-

    ing off on slopes greater than 25%, etc.):

    1. Do not continue riding in such conditions.

    2. Let the clutch cool down with the motor at idling speed for a few minutes.

    Safe driving

    WARNING

    SOME SIMPLE TIPS ARE PROVIDED BELOW THAT WILL ENABLE YOU TO USE

    YOUR SCOOTER ON A DAILY BASIS IN GREATER SAFETY AND WITH MORE

    PEACE OF MIND.

    <

    Your ability and your knowledge of the vehicle form the basis of safe riding. We rec-

    ommend trying out the vehicle in traffic-free zones to get to know your vehicle

    completely.

    ALWAYS DRIVE WITHIN YOUR LIMITS

    1. Before riding off, remember to put on your helmet and fasten it correctly.

    2. Reduce speed and ride cautiously on uneven roads.

    3. Remember that after riding on a long stretch of wet road without using the brakes,

    the braking effect is initially lower. Given these conditions, it is a good idea to operate

    the brakes from time to time.

    4. Do not brake hard on a wet surface, on dirt tracks or on any slippery road surface.

    5. If you have to brake, use both brakes in order to divide the braking action between

    both wheels.

    30

    2 Use

  • Page 31:

    6. Avoid starting off by mounting the scooter while it is still resting on its stand. In any

    case, the rear wheel should not be turning when in comes into contact with the ground,

    in order to avoid abrupt departures.

    7. If the vehicle is used on roads covered with sand, mud, snow mixed with salt, etc.,

    clean the brake disc frequently with mild detergent in order to prevent abrasive sub-

    stances from building up within the holes, which can result in early wear of the brake

    pads.

    8. Any elaboration that modifies the vehicle's performances, such as tampering with

    original structural parts is strictly forbidden by law, and renders the vehicle not con-

    forming to the approved type and therefor dangerous to ride.

    CAUTION

    DO NOT FORGET THAT DRIVING IN A STATE OF DRUNKENNESS, OR WHEN

    UNDER THE EFFECT OF DRUGS OR CERTAIN MEDICINES, CAN BE EXTREME-

    LY DANGEROUS FOR ONESELF AND FOR OTHERS.

    CAUTION

    ANY CHANGES TO THE VEHICLE PERFORMANCE AS WELL AS ALTERATIONS

    TO ORIGINAL STRUCTURAL PARTS IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN BY LAW, AND

    RENDERS THE VEHICLE NO LONGER CONFORMING TO THE APPROVED TYPE

    AND DANGEROUS FOR RIDING.

    Engine oil level

    In 4T engines, the engine oil is used to lubricate the distribution elements, the bench

    bearings and the thermal group. An insufficient quantity of oil can cause serious

    damage to the engine. In all four-stroke engines, a loss of efficiency in oil perform-

    ance and consumption should be considered normal. Consumption can particularly

    reflect the conditions of use (i.e. when driving at "full acceleration" all the time, oil

    consumption increases). In order to prevent any problems, we recommend check-

    ing the oil level any time you use the vehicle. The scooter is, however, equipped

    with an oil pressure warning light on the instrument panel.

    Engine oil level check (03_01)

    Every time the vehicle is used, visually inspect the level of the engine oil when the

    engine is cold (after completely unscrewing the oil cap/dipstick). The oil level should

    be somewhere between the MAX and MIN index marks on the level rod; «A»; during

    the oil check, the vehicle must be resting on its centre stand on an even, horizontal

    surface.

    If the check is carried out after the vehicle has been used, and therefore with a hot

    engine, the level line will be lower; in order to carry out a correct check, wait at least

    10 minutes after the engine has been stopped so as to get the correct level.

    Warning light (insufficient oil pressure) (03_02)

    The scooter is equipped with a warning light «H» that lights up when the key is turned

    to «ON».

    However, this light should switch off once the engine has been started.

    If the light comes on while braking, at idle speed or while turning a corner, it is

    necessary to check the oil level and top it up if required. If, after having topped

    up the oil, the warning light keeps on turning on while braking, at idling speed

    or while turning a corner, it will be necessary to take your vehicle to an Author-

    ised Piaggio Service Centre.

    Engine oil change (03_03, 03_04)

    The engine oil and cartridge filter, "C", must be replaced after the first km, and every

    6.000 km thereafter, by an Authorised Piaggio Service Centre.

    The engine should be emptied by draining the oil from the drainage plug «B » of the

    gauze filter on the flywheel side. In order to facilitate the oil drainage, loosen the cap/

    dipstick. Since a certain quantity of oil still remains in the circuit, filling must be done

    with approx. 600 ÷ 650 cm³ of oil through the cap «A». Then start up the scooter, leave

    it running for a few minutes and switch it off: after about five minutes check the level

    and if necessary top up without exceeding the MAX level.

    The cartridge filter must be replaced every time the oil is changed. For top-ups and

    changes, use new oil of the recommended type.

    WARNING

    RUNNING THE ENGINE WITH INSUFFICIENT LUBRICATION OR WITH INADE-

    QUATE LUBRICANTS ACCELERATES THE WEAR AND TEAR OF THE MOVING

    PARTS AND CAN CAUSE IRRETRIEVABLE DAMAGE.

    Secondary air system (03_13, 03_14)

    In order to reduce polluting emissions, the vehicle is furnished with a catalytic con-

    verter in the muffler.

    To favour the catalytic process, an extra amount of oxygen is added to the exhaust

    through a secondary air system (SAS).

    This system allows more oxygen to be added to the unburned gas before it reaches

    the converter, thus improving the action of the catalytic converter.

    The air enters the head through an exhaust tube and is purified by 2 filters, one internal

    "A" and one external "B".

    The system is provided with a control valve that prevents its functioning while decel-

    erating, to avoid unwanted noise.

    To ensure the best functioning of the SAS system, every two years the scooter should

    be taken to an authorised Piaggio service centre to have the filters cleaned (Sched-

    uled maintenance section).

    The filter sponge should be cleaned with water and mild soap, then it should be dried

    with a cloth and slight blows of compressed air.

    Cooling fluid level (03_15, 03_16)

    The engine cooling takes place through a forced fluid circulation system. The cooling

    circuit contains around 1.8 l of cooling fluid consisting of a mixture of 50% de-ionised

    water and ethylene glycol and corrosion inhibitors based antifreeze solution.

    The system has a coolant temperature indicator.

    Under normal running conditions, the digital instrument indicator must light up to its

    7th/ 8th segment.

    When the 10th segment lights up, the icon and the bars start flashing; if this is the

    case, stop the engine and let it cool off; then check the fluid level. If the fluid level is

    42

    3 Maintenance

  • Page 43:

    03_16

    correct, contact an Authorised Piaggio Service Centre to find the fault that caused

    the system to fail.

    The fluid level must be carried out when the engine is cold, the first time after the first

    1,000 km and thereafter every 6,000 km of use following this procedure:

    a) Put the vehicle in vertical position on its centre stand.

    b) Remove the expansion tank cap "A" by turning it anticlockwise.

    The fluid level can be visually checked once the front shield central cover has been

    removed. If the fluid is near the minimum level, proceed with the top-up operation to

    be carried out when the engine is cold.

    If it is necessary to top up the cooling fluid frequently, or if the expansion tank is com-

    pletely dry, you should look for a leak in the cooling system. It is therefore absolutely

    necessary to have the cooling system checked at an Authorised Piaggio Service

    Centre.

    The cooling system fluid must be changed every 2 years. This operation must be

    carried out by trained technicians, please contact your nearest Piaggio Dealer or

    Authorised Service Centre.

    N.B.

    SHOULD THE 9th SEGMENT OF THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE INDICATOR

    Checking the brake oil level (03_17, 03_18)

    The brake fluid reservoirs are fitted with a transparent indicator "A"; the amount of

    brake fluid seen through the transparent indicator shows the level of fluid contained

    in the reservoir.

    When the indicator "A" is full, the level inside the reservoir exceeds the MIN level;

    when it is partially full, the level has dropped to the MIN level; when it is completely

    empty, the level of fluid in the reservoir is below the MIN level.

    The brake fluid level may fall due to wear on the brake pads. Should the level appear

    to be below the minimum mark, please contact your nearest PIAGGIO-GILERA Deal-

    er or Authorised Service Centre in order to carry out a thorough inspection of the

    braking system. If you need to top up the level, follow the steps listed below. Remove

    the front handlebar cover; loosen the 2 screws "B" and lift the brake fluid tank cover

    Long periods of inactivity

    Battery performance will decrease if the vehicle is not used for a long time. This is the

    result of the natural phenomenon of battery discharging plus residual absorption by

    vehicle components with constant power consumption. Poor battery performance may

    also be due to environmental conditions and the cleanness of the poles. In order to

    avoid difficult starts and/or irreversible damage to the battery, follow any of these

    steps:

    - At least once a month start the engine and run it slightly above idle speed for 10-15

    minutes. This keeps all the engine components, as well as the battery, in good working

    order.

    - Take your vehicle to a garage (as indicated in the "Vehicle not used for extended

    periods" section) to have the battery removed. Have the battery cleaned, charged fully

    and stored in a dry, ventilated place. Recharge at least once every two months.

    N.B.

    2. Turn on the headlight and check that the borderline of the projected light beam on

    the screen is not lower than 9/10 of the distance from the ground to the centre of

    vehicle headlamp and higher than 7/10;

    3. Otherwise, regulate the headlamp by adjusting the screw "A", which can be reached

    after having removed the Piaggio shield cover.

    To reach the taillight assembly bulbs remove the two screws "D", then pull out the

    entire bulb and proceed as follows:

    Side tail lights:

    The tail light bulbs and bulb sockets are snapped on their corresponding supports. It

    is therefore enough to pull bulb socket out of the headlamp in order to fit the new bulb.

    Centre stop light bulbs:

    In order to reach the stop light bulbs it is necessary to remove the rear light by un-

    screwing the two clamping screws that fasten the bulb support and glass together.

    Then, release the lateral ratchets, hold the burnt bulb and make a 30º turn to remove

    it and fit the new bulb.

    WARNING

    IF MISTING IS NOTICED ON THE INSIDE OF THE HEADLAMP GLASS, THIS

    DOES NOT INDICATE A FAULT AND IS RELATED TO THE HUMIDITY AND/OR

    TO LOW TEMPERATURES.

    THE PHENOMENON SHOULD QUICKLY DISAPPEAR WHEN THE LIGHT IS

    SWITCHED ON.

    Rear-view mirrors (03_35)

    The mirrors can be set to the desired position by adjusting the mirror frame.

    The mirrors must be adjusted so that the shafts are perpendicular to the vehicle's

    direction axis.

    To adjust the mirror opening angle loosen the screw fitted at the end of the shaft and

    fasten it once the desired position is reached.

    03_36

    Idle adjustment (03_36, 03_37)

    To adjust idle it is necessary to reach the screw "A" located in the carburettor.

    To carry out this adjustment it is necessary to reach the catalytic muffler as shown in

    the picture, or else by lifting the saddle and removing the hatch located at the bottom

    of the helmet compartment. Idle adjustment must be carried out with the rear wheel

    lifted off the ground (vehicle resting on centre stand) and with a hot engine. tighten or

    loosen the screw until reaching a regular idling speed before running the engine.

    To adjust the throttle transmission clearance it is necessary to intervene on the ad-

    justment screw "C" located on the right side of the carburettor. Once this operation is

    finished, refit the rubber cap protecting the adjustment screw.

    Front and rear disc brake (03_38, 03_39)

    The brake disc and pad wear is automatically compensated, therefore it has no effect

    on the functioning of the front and rear brakes. For this reason it is not necessary to

    adjust the brakes. An excessively elastic brake lever stroke may indicate the presence

    of air in the braking circuit or an irregular brake operation. In this case, mainly due to

    the importance of brakes to guarantee safe riding conditions, the vehicle should be

    taken to an Authorised Piaggio-Gilera Service Centre in order to be checked.

    CAUTION

    BRAKE PADS MUST BE PERIODICALLY CHECKED (EVERY 6,000 KM) FOR

    SIGNS OF WEAR. IF THE THICKNESS OF ONE OR BOTH PADS IS IN THE RE-

    GION OF 1.5 MM, BOTH PADS MUST BE CHANGED. THIS OPERATION MUST

    BE CARRIED OUT AT AN AUTHORISED PIAGGIO-GILERA SERVICE CENTRE.

    AFTER REPLACING THE BRAKE PADS DO NOT USE THE VEHICLE BEFORE

    HAVING USED THE BRAKE LEVER SEVERAL TIMES IN ORDER TO ALLOW THE

    PADS TO SETTLE AND THE LEVER STROKE TO BE SET TO THE CORRECT

    POSITION.

    CAUTION

    THE BRAKING ACTION SHOULD BEGIN AFTER ABOUT 1/3 OF THE BRAKE

    LEVER STROKE.

    CAUTION

    THE PRESENCE OF SAND, MUD, SNOW MIXED WITH SALT, ETC. ON THE

    ROAD, CAN DRASTICALLY REDUCE THE DURATION OF THE BRAKE PADS. IN

    ORDER TO AVOID THIS, WE RECOMMEND WASHING THE VEHICLE FRE-

    QUENTLY WHEN RIDING IN THESE ROAD CONDITIONS.

    03_40

    Puncture (03_40)

    The vehicle is equipped with Tubeless tyres. When there is a puncture, Tubeless tyres

    -unlike balloon tyres- go flat very slowly. This offers greater riding safety. A tyre that

    goes flat very slowly can be repaired with an "INFLATE AND REPAIR" spray. Tyres

    should be later fully repaired at an Authorised Piaggio-Gilera Service Centre.

    Periods of inactivity (03_41)

    We recommend carrying out the following operations:

    1. General cleaning of the vehicle.

    2. With the engine off and the piston at the bottom dead centre position, remove the

    spark plug, and pour 1÷ 2 cm³ of recommended oil through its opening. Press the

    engine start pedal 3 or 4 times letting the engine perform a few revolutions slowly,

    then replace the spark plug.

    3. Drain off all the vehicle fuel; spread antirust grease on the unpainted metal parts;

    keep the wheels off the ground, by resting the chassis on two wooden wedges.

    4. For the battery, follow the procedures described in the «Battery» section.

    5. Drain the petrol from the carburettor float chamber through the bleed cap.

    oil to lubricate flexible transmissions (throttle control)

    Oil for 4-stroke engines

    Cleaning the vehicle

    Use a low pressure jet of water to soften the caked dirt and mud deposited on the

    painted surfaces. Once softened, mud and dirt should be removed with a soft sponge

    for bodywork soaked in water and "shampoo" (2-4% of shampoo in water). Then rinse

    abundantly with water, and dry with a shammy cloth. For the outside of the engine,

    use petroleum, a brush and clean cloths. Petrol can damage paintwork. Remember

    that any polishing with silicone wax must always be preceded by washing.

    CAUTION

    DETERGENTS POLLUTE WATER. THEREFORE THE VEHICLE SHOULD BE

    WASHED IN AN AREA EQUIPPED FOR THE COLLECTION AND PURIFICATION

    OF THE LIQUIDS USED.

    3 Maintenance

  • Page 59:

    WARNING

    NEVER WASH THE VEHICLE UNDER DIRECT SUNLIGHT, ESPECIALLY IN SUM-

    MER WHEN THE BODYWORK IS STILL HOT, AS THE CAR SHAMPOO MAY DRY

    BEFORE BEING RINSED OFF, AND COULD DAMAGE THE PAINTWORK. NEVER

    USE RAGS SOAKED IN PETROL OR DIESEL OIL TO CLEAN THE PAINTED OR

    PLASTIC SURFACES, TO PREVENT THEM LOSING THEIR SHINE AND ME-

    CHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS.

    WARNING

    WHEN WASHING THE ENGINE WITH A HIGH-PRESSURE WATER JET:

    • ONLY USE FAN SPRAY JETS.

    • DO NOT PLACE THE WATER JET NOZZLE CLOSER THAN 60 CM.

    • DO NOT USE WATER AT TEMPERATURES OVER 40° C.

    • DO NOT DIRECT THE JETS DIRECTLY TO CARBURETTOR, WIRING, SLOT

    DIFFUSER ON THE TRANSMISSION COVER AND SCROLL COVER.

    CAUTION

    AVOID USING ALCOHOL OR DETERGENTS WITH SIMILAR AGENTS TO CLEAN

    THE INSTRUMENT PANEL AND THE LIGHTING ASSEMBLIES.

    WARNING

    USE AN ANTISTATIC CLOTH TO CLEAN THE DISPLAY AREA ON THE CON-

    TROL PANEL. IF AN ANTISTATIC CLOTH IS NOT USED, BLACK LINES MAY

    APPEAR ON THE DISPLAY, BUT THESE SHOULD DISAPPEAR QUICKLY AFTER

    THE ENGINE IS SWITCHED ON AND OFF A FEW TIMES IN NORMAL USE.
