Parking

When parking, stop the engine, remove the key from the main switch, and then turn the fuel cock lever to "OFF".

WARNING

• Since the engine and exhaust system can become very hot, park in a place where pedestrians or children are not likely to touch them.

• Do not park on a slope or on soft ground, otherwise the vehicle may overturn.

CAUTION:

Never park in an area where there are fire hazards such as grass or other flammable materials.

Safety is an obligation of the owner. Periodic inspection, adjustment and lubrication will keep your vehicle in the safest and most efficient condition possible. The most important points of motorcycle inspection, adjustment, and lubrication are explained on the following pages.

Maintenance, replacement, or repair of the emission control devices and systems may be performed by any repair establishment or individual that is certified (if applicable).

A WARNING

If you are not familiar with maintenance work, have a Yamaha dealer do it for you.

PERIODIC MAINTENANCE

PROPER PERIODIC MAINTENANCE OF YOUR VEHICLE IS IMPORTANT IN ORDER TO ENJOY LONG, PLEASURABLE SERVICE. ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT ARE THE MAINTENANCE SERVICES RELATED TO EMISSIONS CONTROL. THESE CONTROLS NOT ONLY FUNCTION TO ENSURE CLEANER AIR, BUT ARE ALSO VITAL TO PROPER ENGINE OPERATION AND MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE. IN THE FOLLOWING PERIODIC MAINTENANCE CHARTS, THE SERVICES RELATED TO EMISSIONS CONTROL ARE GROUPED SEPARATELY. THESE SERVICES REQUIRE SPECIALIZED DATA, KNOWLEDGE, AND EQUIPMENT. YAMAHA DEALERS ARE TRAINED AND EQUIPPED TO PERFORM THESE PARTICULAR SERVICES.

Owner's tool kit

1. Owner's tool kit

The owner's tool kit is located inside the storage compartment. (See page 3-10.)

The service information included in this manual and the tools provided in the owner's tool kit are intended to assist you in the performance of preventive maintenance and minor repairs. However, additional tools such as a torque wrench may be necessary to perform certain maintenance work correctly.

If you do not have the tools or experience required for a particular job, have a Yamaha dealer perform it for you.

ik WARNING

Modifications not approved by Yamaha may cause loss of performance, excessive emissions, and render the vehicle unsafe for use. Consult a Yamaha dealer before attempting any changes.
