Loosen the locknut. Turn the adjusting bolt in direction ® to increase free play or in direction © to decrease free play. After adjusting, tighten the lock-nut.

Check the brake lever free play. Be sure the brake is working properly.

A soft or spongy feeling in the brake lever can indicate the presence of air in the brake system. This air must be removed by bleeding the brake system before the motorcycle is operated. Air in the system will cause greatly diminished braking capability and can result in loss of control and an accident. Have a Yamaha dealer inspect and bleed the system if necessary.
