CARBON MONOXIDE

When an operation must be performed with the engine running, position the motorcycle outdoors in a well-ventilatedarea. Never run the engine in an enclosed place.

Use an exhaust emission extraction system when working indoors.

WARNING

Exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas which, if inhaled, may cause loss of consciousness or even death.

Carbon monoxide is both colorless and odorless, and cannot be detected by smell, vision, or any other sense. Avoid inhaling exhaust fumes under any circumstances.

GASOLINE

Keep gasoline away from children. Gasoline is also poisonous. Never attempt to siphon gasoline using your mouth. Never allow gasoline to come in contact with skin. If you should accidentally spill gasoline on yourself, remove contaminated clothing immediately and wash the affected area with hot water and soap. Should you accidentally swallow gasoline, do not induce vomiting. Drink large quantities of clear water or milk and immediately seek medical attention. Should you accidentally get gasoline in your eyes, rinse abundantly with cool, clear water and immediately seek medical attention.

WARNING

Gasoline is extremely flammable and becomes explosive under certain conditions.

KEEP GASOLINE AWAY FROM CHILDREN.

HOT COMPONENTS

WARNING

The engine and exhaust component parts, as well as the braking system, become very hot when running and will stay hot for some time after the vehicle and the engine have been stopped. Before handling any vehicle component after riding, make sure that it has cooled down and is safe to handle.

USED ENGINE OIL

WARNING

Use latex gloves for maintenance operations that require contact with used oil. Prolonged or repeated contact with used engine oil may cause skin cancer. Although this is unlikely unless you handle used oil on a daily basis, it is advisable to thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water after handling used oil.

COOLANT

Under certain conditions, the ethylene glycol contained in the engine coolant is flammable: its flame is invisible, but can still cause burns.

WARNING

Avoid spilling coolant onto hot engine parts. It may ignite and produce invisible flames.

Coolant (ethylene glycol) can cause skin irritation and is poisonous if swallowed. Coolant and coolant/water mixtures are sweet to the taste and brightly colored, they are therefore highly attractive to pets and children. Take extra precautions to keep new and used coolant out of reach of children and animals.

KEEP COOLANT AWAY FROM CHILDREN.

Burn hazards.

Do not remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Wait until the engine has completely cooled down. The coolant is under pressure and may splash out and cause burns.

The battery gives off toxic and explosive gases; keep the battery away from sources of ignition such as cigarettes, flames and sparks. Make sure the area is well ventilated when servicing or refilling the battery.

During recharging and use, make sure that the room is properly ventilated and avoid inhaling the gases released during recharging operations.

The battery contains sulfuric acid (electrolyte). Contact with the skin or eyes may cause serious burns. Always wear protective clothing, rubber gloves, and tight fitting goggles or a face shield when working around the battery, especially when filling the battery with either water or electrolyte.

In case of contact with the skin, rinse immediately with plenty of water. In case of contact with the eyes, flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Immediately seek medical attention.

The electrolyte is poisonous.

If the electrolyte is accidentally swallowed, drink large quantities of water or milk and then milk of magnesia or vegetable oil. Immediately seek medical attention.
