Pre-operation checks should be made each time the motorcycle is used. Such an inspection can be accomplished in a very short time and the added safety it assures is more than worth the time involved.
1. The engine exhaust pipe(s), and muffler(s) will be very hot after the engine has been run. Be careful not to touch them or to allow any clothing item to contact them during inspection or repair.
2. If any item in the PRE-OPERATION CHECK is not working properly, have it inspected and repaired before operating the motorcycle.
