Checking the front fork

The condition and operation of the front fork must be checked as follows at the intervals specified in the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart.

To check the condition


Securely support the motorcycle so that there is no danger of it falling over.

Check the inner tubes for scratches, damage and excessive oil leakage.

To check the operation

1. Place the motorcycle on a level surface and hold it in an upright position.

2. While applying the front brake, push down hard on the handlebars several times to check if the front fork compresses and rebounds smoothly.


If any damage is found or the front fork does not operate smoothly, have a Yamaha dealer check or repair it.
