parked, switch the petcock to the PRI position.
ON (Open) position. When the fuel petcock is in the ON position, fuel

8
Res

On
the last 1.6 liters of fuel is available. Keep the fuel petcock in the ON
position during normal riding & switch to RES only if needed. This will
ensure that the reserve will be available when it is needed.

10. Steering Lock: To engage the steering
lock, first turn the handle bars to the
extreme left. Then insert the key into the
steering lock & turn it clockwise &
remove the key.
11. Gear Shift Lever: Your motorcycle is equipped with a 5 speed
transmission. The gears are operated this way. The gear shift lever is
pressed down firmly with the front of your foot. This will have one of
two effects. It will either change from neutral to 1st gear, or it will
drop the transmission into a lower gear. For example, if you are in
second gear and squeeze the clutch lever and press the gear shift
lever down, you will change into 1st gear. If you are in 5th gear &
press the lever down, you will change into 4th gear. The reverse is
also true. If you raise the shift lever you will switch into a higher gear.
Note that neutral gear is located midway between 1st and 2nd gear.
Caution:
Whenever the neutral light is on,
release the clutch slowly to confirm
that the transmission really is in
neutral gear.
12. Rear Shock Absorber Settings
The stiffness of the rear shock
aborber can be adjusted to five
different levels. The stiffness should
be increased when carrying a
passenger, and decreased when
10
riding on rough roads. Place the motorcycle on it’s stand and turn the
adjustment ring to change the setting.
Warning:
Always keep the left and right rear shock absorbers adjusted to equal
settings. Unequal settings could make the motorcycle unstable.
13. Helmet Lock
Insert your key into the lock & turn the key clockwise. The hook will
open to allow you to attach your helmet. Then remove the key to secure
the lock.
14. Fuel and Oil Requirements
Fuel: Your motorcycle will perform best when the highest octane
gasoline is used. This means 90 octane or better should be
used.
Oil: Use SAE 10W-40 oil in the engine. Use SF grade oil or
better.
15. Run-In
It has aready been mentioned in the introduction, but it’s worth
repeating. Your motorcycle will give you the longest most trouble-free
service if you follow the run-in procedure. The following is a speed
guide to help you through the run-in period.

At 300 Kms, clean the fuel filter and adjust the valves. Check the oil level
11
frequently and top up the level if required. The oil will not require
changing before 5000 Kms or one year.
16. Pre-Ride Inspection
This is a list of common points to inspect prior to each ride.
Steering:
The handle bars should moove smoothly & with full travel from side to
side. The steering should not feel too tight or too loose.
Brakes:
The brake pedal & lever should have full travel & not feel “spongy” or
loose. There should be no cracks or cuts in the hydraulic hoses.
Wheels & Tires:
The tires should be properly inflated & there should be no physical
damage to either the tread or the side walls. The tires should have
sufficient tread depth.
Fuel:
There should be sufficient fuel for the trip.
Indicator Lights:
Check the function of the high beam, neutral gear, and turn signal
indicator lights.
Horn & Brake Switch:
Check for normal operation.
Engine Oil:
Check for correct levels.
Throttle Control:
Make sure the cables operate smoothly with no gaps & return to the
idle position when released.
Clutch:
The clutch should engage smoothly & gradually. There should not be
excessive play in the cable.
12
Rear Chain:
The rear chain should have the correct tension & be sufficiently
lubricated.
Battery Electrolyte:
Check the electrolyte level and add water as needed.
17. Riding Basics
Caution
Never run a vehicle inside a room that is not well ventilated.
Never leave the motorcycle running unattended.
Never let the motorcycle idle for extended periods of time.
Engine Starting Procedure
Turn the fuel petcock so that it is pointing down. Insert the key and
turn it clockwise to the ON position. If the transmission is in neutral,
then the green indicator lamp will light. Keeping the transmission in
neutral gear, hold in the clutch and start the engine.
Cold Engine Starting Procedure
Apply full choke to the engine by moving the choke lever to the left.
Start the engine. As soon as the engine starts, move the choke lever to
the mid position. Allow the engine warm up briefly, removing all choke
as soon as the engine ia able to run reliably.
Warm Engine Starting Procedure
Open the throttle about 1/ 8th to 1/4 of full throttle. Start the engine
and release the throttle. Do not use the choke to start a warm engine.
Accelerating From a Stop
With the clutch lever completely pulled in, step on the gear shift lever
once to shift from neutral to first gear. Then slowly increase the
throttle setting while gradually releasing the clutch lever. The
motorcycle should begin to move slowly and gently forward.
Caution
Be sure the side stand is in the retracted position before riding your
motorcycle.
13
Gear Selection
Choose the appropriate gear to maintain a moderate engine RPM for
the riding conditions. Gear down when travelling uphill to maintain
RPM and prevent lugging the engine. Be sure to change gears quickly
to maintain speed uphill. Gear down when travelling downhill to
prevent overheating the brakes. Choose the right gear so that the
engine RPMs are not too high or too low.
Brake Application
When stopping the motorcycle, first close the throttle control. Shift to a
lower gear to reduce your speed. Apply the front and rear brakes
equally. Just before the motorcycle comes to a complete stop, squeeze
the clutch lever & shift into neutral gear. Look for the neutral light to
confirm you are in neutral. Always use both front & rear brakes to
maintain control of the motorcycle while stopping in the shortest
distance.
Caution
Use caution when riding in wet conditions. Apply the brakes very
gently to avoid losing control. Maintain suitable spacing from other
vehicles around you while applying the brakes early to give yourself
sufficient time to stop.
Parking
The motorcycle should be parked on flat level ground away from other
traffic. If the motorcycle must be parked on a slope, leave the bike in
1st gear to prevent it from rolling. Remember to return to neutral gear
before starting the motorcycle again. Turn the ignition to the OFF
position, and turn the fuel petcock to the PRI position. Finally, lock the
steering to prevent theft.
14
Maintenance Checks
The following is a list of the recommended service intervals. When the
12000 Km reading is reached, then continue maintenance starting again at
the 3000 Km interval. The maintenance interval may be repeated more
often if the motorcycle is ridden in dusty or severe driving conditions.
