General

• A contaminated brake disc or pad reduces stopping power. Discard contaminated pads and clean a contaminated disc with a high quality brake degreasing agent.

• After the rear wheel installation, check brake operation by applying the brake pedal.

• The shock absorber contains nitrogen under high pressure. Do not allow fire or heat near the shock absorber.

• Before disposal of the shock absorber, release the nitrogen (page 14-13).

• When servicing the rear wheel and suspension, support the motorcycle using a safety stand or hoist.

• Use only tires marked "TUBELESS" and tubeless valves on rims marked "TUBELESS TIRE APPLICABLE".

• Use genuine Honda replacement bolts and nuts for all suspension pivot and mounting point.

• When using the luck nut wrench for the adjusting bolt lock nut, use a 20 inches long deflecting beam type torque wrench. The lock nut wrench increases the torque wrench's leverage, so the torque wrench reading will be less than the torque actually applied to the lock nut. The specification later in the text gives both actual and indicated.

• When installing the swinyarm, be sure to tighten the swingarm pivot fasteners to the specified torque in the specified sequence. If you make a mistake during the tightening torque or sequence, loosen all pivot fasteners, then tighten them again to the specified torque in the correct sequence.

• Refer to section 15 for brake system information.
