MOTORCYCLES
ARE
SINGLE
TRACK VEHICLES. THEIR SAFE USE
AND OPERATION ARE DEPENDENT
UPON THE USE OF PROPER RIDING
TECHNIQUES AS WELL AS THE
EXPERTISE OF THE OPERATOR.
EVERY OPERATOR SHOULD KNOW
THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS
BEFORE RIDING THIS MOTORCYCLE.
HE OR SHE SHOULD:
● OBTAIN THOROUGH INSTRUCTIONS FROM A COMPETENT
SOURCE ON ALL ASPECTS OF
MOTORCYCLE OPERATION.
● OBSERVE THE WARNINGS AND
MAINTENANCE
REQUIREMENTS IN THE OWNER’S
MANUAL.
● OBTAIN QUALIFIED TRAINING
IN SAFE AND PROPER RIDING
TECHNIQUES.
● OBTAIN PROFESSIONAL TECHNICAL SERVICE AS INDICATED
BY THE OWNER’S MANUAL
AND/OR WHEN MADE NECESSARY BY MECHANICAL CONDITIONS.
Safe riding
● Always
make pre-operation
checks. Careful checks may help
prevent an accident.
● This motorcycle is designed to
carry the operator and a passenger.
● The failure of motorists to detect
and recognize motorcycles in
traffic is the predominating cause
of automobile/motorcycle accidents. Many accidents have
been caused by an automobile
driver who did not see the
motorcycle. Making yourself
conspicuous appears to be very
effective in reducing the chance
of this type of accident.
Therefore:
• Wear a brightly colored jacket.
• Use extra caution when approaching and passing through
intersections, since intersections are the most likely places
for motorcycle accidents to
occur.
• Ride where other motorists can
see you. Avoid riding in another motorist’s blind spot.
1-1
●
●
Many accidents involve inexperienced operators. In fact, many
operators who have been involved in accidents do not even
have a current motorcycle license.
• Make sure that you are qualified and that you only lend your
motorcycle to other qualified
operators.
• Know your skills and limits.
Staying within your limits may
help you to avoid an accident.
• We recommend that you practice riding your motorcycle
where there is no traffic until
you have become thoroughly
familiar with the motorcycle
and all of its controls.
Many accidents have been caused by error of the motorcycle
operator. A typical error made by
the operator is veering wide on a
turn due to EXCESSIVE SPEED
or undercornering (insufficient
lean angle for the speed).
1D0-F8199-E2.qxd

SAFETY INFORMATION t
●
●
• Always obey the speed limit
and never travel faster than
warranted by road and traffic
conditions.
• Always signal before turning or
changing lanes. Make sure that
other motorists can see you.
The posture of the operator and
passenger is important for proper
control.
• The operator should keep both
hands on the handlebar and
both feet on the operator footrests during operation to
maintain control of the
motorcycle.
• The passenger should always
hold onto the operator, the seat
strap or grab bar, if equipped,
with both hands and keep both
feet on the passenger footrests.
• Never carry a passenger
unless he or she can firmly place both feet on the passenger
footrests.
Never ride under the influence of
alcohol or other drugs.
Protective apparel
The majority of fatalities from
motorcycle accidents are the result of
head injuries. The use of a safety helmet is the single most critical factor in
the prevention or reduction of head
injuries.
● Always wear an approved helmet.
● Wear a face shield or goggles.
Wind in your unprotected eyes
could contribute to an impairment of vision that could delay
seeing a hazard.
● The use of a jacket, heavy boots,
trousers, gloves, etc., is effective
in preventing or reducing abrasions or lacerations.
● Never wear loose-fitting clothes,
otherwise they could catch on
the control levers, footrests, or
wheels and cause injury or an
accident.
1-2
Never touch the engine or
exhaust system during or after
operation. They become very hot
and can cause burns. Always
wear protective clothing that
covers your legs, ankles, and
feet.
● Passengers should also observe
the precautions mentioned above.
Modifications
Modifications made to this motorcycle not approved by Yamaha, or the
removal of original equipment, may
render the motorcycle unsafe for use
and may cause severe personal injury.
Modifications may also make your
motorcycle illegal to use.

SAFETY INFORMATION
Loading and accessories
Adding accessories or cargo to your
motorcycle can adversely affect stability and handling if the weight distribution of the motorcycle is changed.
To avoid the possibility of an accident, use extreme caution when
adding cargo or accessories to your
motorcycle. Use extra care when
riding a motorcycle that has added
cargo or accessories. Here are some
general guidelines to follow if loading
cargo or adding accessories to your
motorcycle:
Loading
The total weight of the operator, passenger, accessories and cargo must
not exceed the maximum load limit of
178 kg (392 lb) DT125R, 180 kg (396
lb) DT125X. When loading within this
weight limit, keep the following in
mind:
● Cargo and accessory weight
should be kept as low and close
to the motorcycle as possible.
Make sure to distribute the
weight as evenly as possible on
both sides of the motorcycle to
minimize imbalance or instability.
Shifting weights can create a
sudden imbalance. Make sure
that accessories and cargo are
securely
attached
to
the
motorcycle before riding. Check
accessory mounts and cargo restraints frequently.
● Never attach any large or heavy
items to the handlebar, front fork,
or front fender. These items,
including such cargo as sleeping
bags, duffel bags, or tents, can
create unstable handling or a
slow steering response.
Accessories
Genuine Yamaha accessories have
been specifically designed for use on
this motorcycle. Since Yamaha cannot test all other accessories that may
be available, you must personally be
responsible for the proper selection,
installation and use of non-Yamaha
accessories. Use extreme caution
when selecting and installing any
accessories.
Keep the following guidelines in mind,
as well as those provided under “Loading” when mounting accessories.
●
1-3
●
Never install accessories or carry
cargo that would impair the performance of your motorcycle.
Carefully inspect the accessory
before using it to make sure that
it does not in any way reduce
ground clearance or cornering
clearance, limit suspension travel, steering travel or control operation, or obscure lights or reflectors.
• Accessories fitted to the handlebar or the front fork area can
create instability due to improper weight distribution or
aerodynamic
changes.
If
accessories are added to the
handlebar or front fork area,
they must be as lightweight as
possible and should be kept to
a minimum.
1D0-F8199-E2.qxd
20/9/04 11:32

SAFETY INFORMATION t
●
• Bulky or large accessories may
seriously affect the stability of
the motorcycle due to aerodynamic effects. Wind may
attempt to lift the motorcycle,
or the motorcycle may become
unstable in cross winds. These
accessories may also cause
instability when passing or
being passed by large vehicles.
• Certain accessories can displace the operator from his or
her normal riding position. This
improper position limits the freedom of movement of the operator and may limit control ability,
therefore,
such
accessories are not recommended.
Use caution when adding electrical accessories. If electrical
accessories exceed the capacity
of the motorcycle’s electrical system an electric failure could
result, which could cause a dangerous loss of lights or engine
power.
Gasoline and exhaust gas
● GASOLINE IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE:
• Always turn the engine off
when refueling.
• Take care not to spill any gasoline on the engine or exhaust
system when refueling.
• Never refuel while smoking or
in the vicinity of an open flame.
● Never start the engine or let it run
for any length of time in a closed
area. The exhaust fumes are poisonous and may cause loss of
consciousness and death within
a short time. Always operate your
motorcycle in an area that has
adequate ventilation.
● Always turn the engine off before
leaving the motorcycle unattended and remove the key from the
main switch. When parking the
motorcycle, note the following:
• The engine and exhaust system may be hot, therefore,
park the motorcycle in a place
where pedestrians or children
are not likely to touch these hot
areas.
1-4
●
●
• Do not park the motorcycle on
a slope or soft ground, otherwise it may fall over.
• Do not park the motorcycle
near a flammable source (e.g.,
a kerosene heater, or near an
open flame), otherwise it could
catch fire.
When transporting the motorcycle in another vehicle, make sure
that it is kept upright and that the
fuel cock(s) are turned to “ON” or
“RES” (for vacuum type)/”OFF”
(for manual type). If the motorcycle should lean over, gasoline
may leak out of the carburetor or
fuel tank.
If you should swallow any gasoline, inhale a lot of gasoline vapor,
or allow gasoline to get into your
eyes, see your doctor immediately. If any gasoline spills on your
skin or clothing, immediately
wash the affected area with soap
and water and change your clothes.

s WARNING
● Do not overfill the fuel tank,
otherwise it may overflow
when the fuel warms up and
expands.
● Avoid spilling fuel on the hot
engine.
CAUTION
Use only unleaded gasoline. The
use of leaded gasoline will cause
severe damage to internal engine
parts, such as the valves and piston
rings, as well as to the exhaust system.
ECA10070
Your Yamaha engine has been designed to use regular unleaded gasoline
with a research octane number of 91
or higher. If knocking (or pinging)
occurs, use a gasoline of a different
brand or premium unleaded fuel. Use
of unleaded fuel will extend spark
plug life and reduce maintenance
costs.
CAUTION
Immediately wipe off spilled fuel
with a clean, dry, soft cloth, since
fuel may deteriorate painted surfaces or plastic parts.

The condition of a vehicle is the
owner’s responsibility. Vital components can start to deteriorate quickly
and unexpectedly, even if the vehicle
remains unused (for example, as a
result of exposure to the elements).
Any damage, fluid leakage or loss of
tire air pressure could have serious
consequences. Therefore, it is very
important, in addition to a thorough
visual inspection, to check the following points before each ride.
NOTE:
Pre-operation checks should be
made each time the vehicle 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.

The spark plug is an important engine
component, which should be checked periodically, preferably by a
Yamaha dealer. Since heat and deposits will cause any spark plug to
slowly erode, it should be removed
and checked in accordance with the
periodic maintenance and lubrication
chart. In addition, the condition of the
spark plug can reveal the condition of
the engine.
The porcelain insulator around the
center electrode of the spark plug
should be a medium-to-light tan (the
ideal color when the vehicle is ridden
normally). If the spark plug shows a
distinctly different color, the engine
could be defective. Do not attempt to
diagnose such problems yourself.
Instead, have a Yamaha dealer check
the vehicle.
If the spark plug shows signs of electrode erosion and excessive carbon

MOTORCYCLE CARE AND STORAGE
EAU26000
Care
While the open design of a motorcycle reveals the attractiveness of the
technology, it also makes it more vulnerable. Rust and corrosion can
develop even if high-quality components are used. A rusty exhaust pipe
may go unnoticed on a car, however,
it detracts from the overall appearance of a motorcycle. Frequent and proper care does not only comply with
the terms of the warranty, but it will
also keep your motorcycle looking
good, extend its life and optimize its
performance.
Before cleaning
1. Cover the muffler outlet with a
plastic bag after the engine has
cooled down.
2. Make sure that all caps and
covers as well as all electrical
couplers and connectors, including the spark plug cap, 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.
Cleaning
ECA10770
CAUTION
● Avoid using strong acidic wheel cleaners, especially on spoked wheels. If such products
are used on hard-to-remove
dirt, do not leave the cleaner on
the affected area any longer
than instructed. Also, thoroughly rinse the area off with
water, immediately dry it, and
then 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.
7-1
●
●
●
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 and
swingarm bearings, fork and
brakes), electric components
(couplers, connectors, instruments, switches and lights),
breather hoses and vents.
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 that it does not lea-

ve any marks. If the windshield
is scratched, use a quality
plastic polishing compound
after washing.
7
After normal use
Remove dirt with warm water, a mild
detergent, and a soft, clean sponge,
and then rinse thoroughly with clean
water. Use a toothbrush or bottlebrush for hard-to-reach areas. Stubborn dirt and insects will come off
more easily if the area is covered with
a wet cloth for a few minutes before
cleaning.
After riding in the rain, near the sea or
on salt-sprayed roads
Since sea salt or salt sprayed on
roads during winter are extremely
corrosive in combination with water,
carry out the following steps after
each ride in the rain, near the sea or
on salt-sprayed roads.
NOTE:
Salt sprayed on roads in the winter
may remain well into spring.
1. Clean the motorcycle with cold
water and a mild detergent, after
the engine has cooled down.
ECA10790
CAUTION
Do not use warm water since it
increases the corrosive action of
the salt.
2. Apply a corrosion protection
spray on all metal, including
chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces to prevent corrosion.
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 stainless-steel
exhaust systems can be removed
through polishing.)
7-2
4. To prevent corrosion, it is recommended to apply a corrosion protection spray on all metal, including chrome- and nickel-plated,
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 or covering it.
EWA10930
s WARNING
● Make sure that there is no oil or
wax on the brakes or tires. If
necessary, clean the brake
discs and brake linings with a
regular brake disc cleaner or
acetone, and wash the tires
with warm water and a mild
detergent.
● Before operating the motorcycle test its braking performance and cornering behavior.

product.
● Avoid using abrasive polishing
compounds as they will wear
away the paint.
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.
NOTE:
Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice
on what products to use.

etc. from corrosion.
a. Remove the spark plug cap and
spark plug.
b. Pour a teaspoonful of engine oil
into the spark plug bore.
c. Install the spark plug cap onto
the spark plug, and then place
the spark plug 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 wall with oil.)
e. Remove the spark plug cap from
the spark plug, and then install
the spark plug and the spark plug
cap.
