When tightening the locknut, hold the adjusting bolt with a spanner so that the adjusting bolt is not turned together with the locknut.
• Adjust parking brake cable length © by turning cable adjuster © in or out.
Parking brake cable length: 46~50mm(1.81~1.97in)
After this adjustment is performed, block the rear of the machine off the ground, and spin the rear wheels to ensure there is no brake drag. If any brake drag is noticed, perform the above step again.
(HYDRAULIC BRAKE SYSTEM)
Bleed the brake system if:
• The system has been disassembled.
• A brake hose has been loosened or removed.
• The brake operation is faulty.
A dangerous loss of braking performance may occur if the brake system is not properly bled.
• Brake fluid »*»*»*♦»*»»*»»»»»»»»»»»»*♦*»**»»»»»**
Air bleeding steps:
• Add proper brake fluid to the reservoir.
• Install the diaphragm. Be careful not to spill any fluid or allow the reservoir to overflow.
• Connect the clear plastic tube ® tightly to the caliper bleed screw.
• Place the other end of the tube into a container.
• Slowly apply the brake lever or pedal several times.
• Pull the lever in or push down on the pedal. Hold the lever or pedal in position.
• Loosen the bleed screw and allow the lever or pedal to travel towards its limit.
• Tighten the bleed screw when the lever or pedal limit has been reached; then release the lever or pedal.
• Repeat above steps until the air bubbles have been removed from the system.
If bleeding is difficult, it may be necessary to let the brake fluid system stabilize for a few hours. Repeat the bleeding procedure when the tiny bubbles in the system have disappeared.
• Add brake fluid to proper level.
Check the operation of the brake after bleeding the brake system.
DRIVE CHAIN SLACK ADJUSTMENT Drive chain slack check: 1. Measure: • Drive chain slack (a) At the position shown in the photograph. Out of specification -> Adjust.
Drive chain slack measurement steps:
• Elevate the rear wheels by placing a suitable stand under the engine.
• Rotate the rear wheel several times.
• Check the chain slack several times to find the point where the chain is the tightest.
• Check the chain slack when the wheel is in this "tight chain" position.
Drive chain slack (D :
• If the slack exceeds the limit 40mm(1.6in), adjust the chain slack.
Drive chain slack adjustment:
• Drive chain slack ••*•••••*••*••***«••**•*••••••*******
Drive chain slack adjustment steps:
• Adjust chain slack by turning the adjuster To tighten Turn adjuster (4) clockwise.
Turn adjuster (4) counter clockwise and push wheel forward.
• Turn each adjuster exactly the same amount to maintain correct axle alignment. (There are marks © on each side of chain puller alignment.)
