Motorcycles are fascinating vehicles, which can give you an unsurpassed feeling of power and
freedom. However, they also impose certain limits, which you must accept; even the best motorcycle
does not ignore the laws of physics.
1
Regular care and maintenance are essential for preserving your motorcycle’s value and operating
condition. Moreover, what is true for the motorcycle is also true for the rider: good performance
depends on being in good shape. Riding under the influence of medication, drugs and alcohol is, of
course, out of the question. Motorcycle riders - more than car drivers - must always be at their mental
and physical best. Under the influence of even small amounts of alcohol, there is a tendency to take
dangerous risks.
Protective clothing is as essential for the motorcycle rider as seat belts are for car drivers and
passengers. Always wear a complete motorcycle suit (whether made of leather or tear-resistant
synthetic materials with protectors), sturdy boots, motorcycle gloves and a properly fitting helmet.
Optimum protective wear, however, should not encourage carelessness. Though full-coverage
helmets and suits, in particular, create an illusion of total safety and protection, motorcyclists will
always be vulnerable. Riders who lack critical self-control run the risk of going too fast and are apt to
take chances. This is even more dangerous in wet weather. The good motorcyclist rides safely,
predictably and defensively - avoiding all dangers, including those caused by others.
Enjoy your ride!

Sidestand
This model is equipped with an ignition
circuit cut-off system. The motorcycle
must not be ridden when the sidestand
is down. The sidestand is located on
the left side of the frame. (Refer to
page 5-1 for an explanation of this system.)
EW000044
WARNING
This motorcycle must not be operated with the sidestand in the down
position. If the stand is not properly
retracted, it could contact the
ground and distract the operator, resulting in a possible loss of control.
Yamaha has designed into this
motorcycle a lockout system to assist the operator in fulfilling the responsibility of retracting the
sidestand. Please check carefully
the operating instructions listed below and if there is any indication of a
malfunction, return the motorcycle
to a Yamaha dealer immediately for
repair.

Owners are personally responsible for their vehicle’s condition. Your motorcycle’s vital functions can start to deteriorate
quickly and unexpectedly, even if it remains unused (for instance, if it is exposed to the elements). Any damage, fluid leak or
loss of tire pressure could have serious consequences. Therefore, it is very important that, in addition to a thorough visual inspection, you check the following points before each ride.

WARNING
● Before riding this motorcycle,
become thoroughly familiar
with all operating controls and
their functions. Consult a
Yamaha dealer regarding any
control or function that you do
not thoroughly understand.
● Never start your engine or let it
run for any length of time in a
closed area. The exhaust fumes
are poisonous and can cause
loss of consciousness and
death within a short time. Always operate your motorcycle
in an area with adequate ventilation.
● Before starting out, always be
sure the sidestand is up. Failure
to retract the sidestand completely can result in a serious
accident when you try to turn a
corner.

CAUTION:
● Do not coast for long periods
with the engine off, and do not
tow the motorcycle a long distance. Even with gears in neutral, the transmission is only
properly lubricated when the
engine is running. Inadequate
lubrication may damage the
transmission.
● Always use the clutch when
changing gears. The engine,
transmission, and driveline are
not designed to withstand the
shock of forced shifting and can
be damaged by shifting without
using the clutch.

Tips for reducing fuel
consumption
The recommended shift points are
shown in the table below.
Your motorcycle’s fuel consumption
depends to a large extent on your
riding style. The following tips can help
reduce fuel consumption:
● Warm up the engine before riding.
● Turn off the starter (choke) as
soon as possible.
● Shift up swiftly and avoid high engine speeds during acceleration.
● Do not double-clutch or rev the engine while shifting down and avoid
high engine speeds with no load
on the engine.
● Turn off the engine instead of letting it idle for an extended length
of time, i.e. in traffic jams, at traffic
lights or railroad crossings.

Engine break-in
There is never a more important period
in the life of your motorcycle than the
period between zero and 1,600 km. For
this reason we ask that you carefully
read the following material. Because
the engine is brand new, you must not
put an excessive load on it for the first
1,600 km. The various parts in the engine wear and polish themselves to the
correct operating clearances. During
this period, prolonged full throttle operation, or any condition which might result in excessive heating of the engine,
must be avoided.

Inspection
The spark plug is an important engine
component and is easy to inspect. The
condition of the spark plug can indicate
the condition of the engine. Normally,
all spark plugs from the same engine
should have the same color on the
white insulator around the center electrode. The ideal color at this point is a
medium-to-light tan color for a motorcycle that is being ridden normally. If
one spark plug shows a distinctly different color, there could be something
wrong with the engine. Do not attempt
to diagnose such problems yourself. Instead, take the motorcycle to a
Yamaha dealer. You should periodical6-7

order for you to make fully effective
use of these tires.
● Never fail to use the specified
tires in tire replacement. Other
tires may have a danger of
bursting at super high-speeds.
● New tires have a relatively low
grip on the road surface until
they have been slightly worn.
Therefore, approximately 100 km
should be traveled at normal
speed before any high-speed
riding is done.
● Before any high-speed runs, the
tires should be warmed-up sufficiently.
● Always inflate to the correct tire
pressure according to the operating conditions.

Wheels
To ensure maximum performance,
long service, and safe operation, note
the following:
● Always inspect the wheels before
a ride. Check for cracks, bends, or
warpage of the wheels. If any abnormal condition exists in a wheel,
consult a Yamaha dealer. Do not
attempt even small repairs to the
wheel. If a wheel is deformed or
cracked, it must be replaced.
● Tires and wheels should be balanced whenever either one is
changed or replaced. Failure to
have a wheel balanced can result
in poor performance, adverse handling characteristics, and shortened tire life.
● Ride at moderate speeds after
changing a tire since the tire surface must first be broken in for it to
develop its optimal characteristics.

Troubleshooting
6
Although Yamaha motorcycles receive
a rigid inspection before shipment from
the factory, trouble may occur during
operation.
Any problem in the fuel, compression,
or ignition systems can cause poor
starting and loss of power. The troubleshooting chart describes a quick, easy
procedure for making checks.
If your motorcycle requires any repair,
bring it to a Yamaha dealer. The skilled
technicians at a Yamaha dealership
have the tools, experience, and knowhow to properly service your motorcycle. Use only genuine Yamaha parts
on your motorcycle. Imitation parts may
look like Yamaha parts, but they are often inferior. Consequently, they have a
shorter service life and can lead to expensive repair bills.

Care
7
The exposure of its technology makes
a motorcycle charming but also vulnerable. Although high-quality components are used, they are not all rust-resistant. While a rusty exhaust pipe may
remain unnoticed on a car, it does look
unattractive on a motorcycle. Frequent
and proper care, however, will keep
your motorcycle looking good, extend
its life and maintain its performance.
Moreover, the warranty states that the
vehicle must be properly taken care of.
For all these reasons, it is recommended that you observe the following
cleaning and storing precautions.
Before cleaning
1. Cover up the muffler outlet with a
plastic bag.
2. Make sure that all caps and covers
as well as all electrical couplers
and connectors, including the
spark plug caps, are tightly installed.
3. Remove extremely stubborn dirt,
like oil burnt onto the crankcase,
with a degreasing agent and a
brush, but never apply such products onto seals, gaskets, sprockets, the drive chain and wheel
axles. Always rinse the dirt and
degreaser off with water.
7-1
Cleaning
After normal use
Remove dirt with warm water, a neutral
detergent and a soft clean sponge,
then rinse with plenty of clean water.
Use a tooth or bottle brush for hard-toreach parts. Tougher dirt and insects
will come off more easily if the area is
covered with a wet cloth for a few minutes before cleaning.

ECA00010
@
CAUTION:
● Avoid using strong acidic wheel
cleaners, especially on spoked
wheels. If you do use such
products for hard-to-remove
dirt, do not leave it on any longer than instructed, then thoroughly rinse it off with water,
immediately dry the area and
apply a corrosion protection
spray.
● Improper cleaning can damage
windshields, cowlings, panels
and other plastic parts. Use
only a soft, clean cloth or
sponge with mild detergent and
water to clean plastic.
Do not use any harsh chemical
products on plastic parts. Be
sure to avoid using cloths or
sponges which have been in
contact with strong or abrasive
cleaning products, solvent or
thinner, fuel (gasoline), rust removers or inhibitors, brake fluid, antifreeze or electrolyte.
● Do not use high-pressure washers or steam-jet cleaners since
they cause water seepage and
deterioration in the following areas: seals (of wheel bearings,
swingarm bearings, forks and
brakes), electric components
(couplers, connectors, instruments, switches and lights),
breather hoses and vents.
●
7-2
●
For motorcycles equipped with
a windshield: Do not use strong
cleaners or hard sponges as
they will cause dulling or
scratching. Some cleaning
compounds for plastic may
leave scratches on the windshield. Test the product on a
small hidden part of the windshield to make sure they do not
leave any marks. If the windshield is scratched, use a quality plastic polishing compound
after washing.
@
After riding in the rain, near the sea or
on salt-sprayed roads
Since sea salt or salt sprayed on the
roads in the winter are extremely corrosive in combination with water, carry
out the following steps after each ride
in the rain, near the sea or on saltsprayed roads. (Salt sprayed in the
winter may remain on the roads well
into spring.)
7
E_5dm_Cleaning.fm Page 3 Saturday, October 16, 1999 1:47 PM
MOTORCYCLE CARE AND STORAGE
1. Clean your motorcycle with cold
water and soap after the engine
has cooled down.
ECA00012
CAUTION:
Do not use warm water since it increases the corrosive action of the
salt.
@
@
2. Be sure to apply a corrosion protection spray on all (even chromeand nickel-plated) metal surfaces
to prevent corrosion.
7
After cleaning
1. Dry the motorcycle with a chamois
or an absorbing cloth.
2. Immediately dry the drive chain
and lubricate it to prevent it from
rusting.
3. Use a chrome polish to shine
chrome, aluminum and stainlesssteel parts, including the exhaust
system. (Even the thermally induced discoloring of stainlesssteel exhaust systems can be removed through polishing.)
4. To prevent corrosion, it is recommended to apply a corrosion protection spray on all (even chromeand nickel-plated) metal surfaces.
5. Use spray oil as a universal cleaner to remove any remaining dirt.
6. Touch up minor paint damage
caused by stones, etc.
7. Wax all painted surfaces.
8. Let the motorcycle dry completely
before storing it or covering it.

the paint.
Storage
Short-term
Always store your motorcycle in a cool,
dry place and, if necessary, protect it
against dust with a porous cover.
ECA00014
@
@
NOTE:
Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on
what products to use.
@
@
CAUTION:
● Storing the motorcycle in a
poorly ventilated room or covering it with a tarp while it is still
wet will allow water and humidity to seep in and cause rust.
● To prevent corrosion, avoid
damp cellars, stables (because
of the presence of ammonia)
and areas where strong chemicals are stored.
@
7-4
Long-term
Before storing your motorcycle for several months:
1. Follow all the instructions in the
“Care” section of this chapter.
2. Drain the carburetor float chambers by loosening the drain bolts;
this will prevent fuel deposits from
building up. Pour the drained fuel
into the fuel tank.
3. Only for motorcycles equipped
with a fuel cock which has an
“OFF” position: Turn the fuel cock
to “OFF”.
4. Fill up the fuel tank and add fuel
stabilizer (if available) to prevent
the fuel tank from rusting and the
fuel from deteriorating.
5. Perform the following steps to protect the cylinders, piston rings, etc.
from corrosion.
a. Remove the spark plug caps and
spark plugs.
b. Pour a teaspoonful of engine oil
into each spark plug bore.
7
E_5dm_Cleaning.fm Page 5 Saturday, October 16, 1999 1:47 PM
MOTORCYCLE CARE AND STORAGE
7. Check and, if necessary, correct
the tire air pressure, then raise the
motorcycle so that both of its
wheels are off the ground. Alternatively, turn the wheels a little every
month in order to prevent the tires
from becoming degraded in one
spot.
8. Cover up the muffler outlet with a
plastic bag to prevent moisture
from entering.
9. Remove the battery and fully
charge it. Store it in a cool, dry
place and recharge it once a
month. Do not store the battery in
an excessively cold or warm place
(less than 0°C or more than 30°C).
For more information, see “Battery
storage” in the chapter “PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AND MINOR
REPAIRS”.
c. Install the spark plug caps onto the
spark plugs and place the spark
plugs on the cylinder head so that
the electrodes are grounded. (This
will limit sparking during the next
step.)
d. Turn the engine over several times
with the starter. (This will coat the
cylinder walls with oil.)
e. Remove the spark plug caps from
the spark plugs, install the spark
plugs and then the spark plug
caps.
EWA00003
WARNING
When turning the engine over, be
sure to ground the spark plug electrodes to prevent damage or injury
from sparking.
