Be a Responsible Owner
As the vehicle’s owner, you are responsible for the safe and proper operation
of your motorcycle.
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 this Owner’s Manual.
● Obtain qualified training in safe
and proper riding techniques.
● Obtain professional technical service as indicated in this Owner’s
Manual and/or when made necessary by mechanical conditions.
Safe Riding
Perform the pre-operation checks each
time you use the vehicle to make sure it
is in safe operating condition. Failure to
inspect or maintain the vehicle properly
increases the possibility of an accident
or equipment damage. See page 5-1
for a list of pre-operation checks.
● This motorcycle is designed for offroad use only, therefore, it is illegal
to operate it on public streets,
roads, or highways, even a dirt or
gravel one. Off-road use on public
lands may be illegal. Please check
local regulations before riding.
● This motorcycle is designed to carry the operator only. No passengers.
● 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
2-1
●
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 you are
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.
Many accidents involve inexperienced operators.
• 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 until
you have become thoroughly familiar with the motorcycle and all
of its controls.
U1P617E0.book Page 2 Monday, April 11, 2011 8:07 PM
SAFETY INFORMATION
●
●
●
●
●
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). Never travel faster
than warranted by conditions.
Ride cautiously in unfamiliar areas. You may encounter hidden
obstacles that could cause an accident.
The posture of the operator 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.
Never ride under the influence of
alcohol or other drugs.
Be sure the transmission is in neutral before starting the engine.
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.
● Always wear protective clothing
that covers your legs, ankles, and
feet. The engine or exhaust system become very hot during or after operation and can cause burns.
2-2
Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
All engine exhaust contains carbon
monoxide, a deadly gas. Breathing carbon monoxide can cause headaches,
dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, confusion, and eventually death.
Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas which may be
present even if you do not see or smell
any engine exhaust. Deadly levels of
carbon monoxide can collect rapidly
and you can quickly be overcome and
unable to save yourself. Also, deadly
levels of carbon monoxide can linger
for hours or days in enclosed or poorly
ventilated areas. If you experience any
symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, leave the area immediately, get
fresh air, and SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT.
● Do not run engine indoors. Even if
you try to ventilate engine exhaust
with fans or open windows and
doors, carbon monoxide can rapidly reach dangerous levels.
● Do not run engine in poorly ventilated or partially enclosed areas
such as barns, garages, or carports.

Do not run engine outdoors where
engine exhaust can be drawn into
a building through openings such
as windows and doors.
Loading
Adding accessories 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 accessories to
your motorcycle. Use extra care when
riding a motorcycle that has added accessories. Here are some general
guidelines to follow if adding accessories to your motorcycle:
Operation of an overloaded vehicle
could cause an accident.
● The weight of the operator must
not exceed 40.0 kg (88 lb).
● Accessory weight should be kept
as low and close to the motorcycle
as possible. Securely pack your
heaviest items as close to the center of the vehicle as possible and
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 are securely attached to
the motorcycle before riding.
Check accessory mounts frequently.
• Properly adjust the suspension
for your load (suspension-adjustable models only), and
check the condition and pressure of your tires.
• Never attach any large or heavy
items to the handlebar, front
fork, or front fender.
Genuine Yamaha Accessories
Choosing accessories for your vehicle
is an important decision. Genuine
Yamaha accessories, which are available only from a Yamaha dealer, have
been designed, tested, and approved
by Yamaha for use on your vehicle.
Many companies with no connection to
Yamaha manufacture parts and accessories or offer other modifications for
Yamaha vehicles. Yamaha is not in a
2-3
position to test the products that these
aftermarket
companies
produce.
Therefore, Yamaha can neither endorse nor recommend the use of accessories not sold by Yamaha or
modifications not specifically recommended by Yamaha, even if sold and
installed by a Yamaha dealer.
Aftermarket Parts, Accessories, and
Modifications
While you may find aftermarket products similar in design and quality to
genuine Yamaha accessories, recognize that some aftermarket accessories
or modifications are not suitable because of potential safety hazards to you
or others. Installing aftermarket products or having other modifications performed to your vehicle that change any
of the vehicle’s design or operation
characteristics can put you and others
at greater risk of serious injury or death.
You are responsible for injuries related
to changes in the vehicle.
Keep the following guidelines in mind,
as well as those provided under “Loading” when mounting accessories.
U1P617E0.book Page 4 Monday, April 11, 2011 8:07 PM
SAFETY INFORMATION
●
Never install accessories 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.
• Accessories fitted to the handlebar or the front fork area can
create instability due to improper
weight distribution. 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.
• Bulky or large accessories may
seriously affect the stability of
the motorcycle. Wind may attempt to lift the motorcycle, or
the motorcycle may become unstable in cross winds.
• Certain accessories can displace the operator from his or
her normal riding position. This
improper position limits the freedom of movement of the opera-
●
tor 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.
●
●
●
●
Aftermarket Tires and Rims
The tires and rims that came with your
motorcycle were designed to match the
performance capabilities and to provide
the best combination of handling, braking, and comfort. Other tires, rims, sizes, and combinations may not be
appropriate. Refer to page 7-13 for tire
specifications and more information on
replacing your tires.
●
Transporting the Motorcycle
Be sure to observe following instructions before transporting the motorcycle in another vehicle.
● Remove all loose items from the
motorcycle.
2-4
Check that the fuel cock (if
equipped) is in the “OFF” position
and that there are no fuel leaks.
Point the front wheel straight
ahead on the trailer or in the truck
bed, and choke it in a rail to prevent movement.
Shift the transmission in gear (for
models with a manual transmission).
Secure the motorcycle with tiedowns or suitable straps that are
attached to solid parts of the motorcycle, such as the frame or upper front fork triple clamp (and not,
for example, to rubber-mounted
handlebars or turn signals, or parts
that could break). Choose the location for the straps carefully so
the straps will not rub against
painted surfaces during transport.
The suspension should be compressed somewhat by the tiedowns, if possible, so that the motorcycle will not bounce excessively during transport.

Engine break-in
There is never a more important period
in the life of your engine than the first 5
hours of riding. It is also important to accustom the rider to the motorcycle during this time. Please read the following
information carefully.
Since the engine is brand new, do not
put an excessive load on it for the first 5
hours of operation. 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 that might
result in engine overheating must be
avoided. However, momentary fullthrottle operation under load (i.e., two
to three seconds maximum) does not
harm the engine. Each full-throttle acceleration should be followed with a
substantial rest period for the engine.
To allow the engine to cool down from
the temporary buildup of heat, cruise at
a lower engine speed.
After the first 5 hours of operation, thoroughly check the motorcycle for loose
parts, oil leakage and any other problems. Be sure to inspect and make ad6-3
justments thoroughly, especially cable
and drive chain slack and loose
spokes. In addition, check all fittings
and fasteners for looseness, and tighten if necessary.

Troubleshooting
Although Yamaha motorcycles receive
a thorough inspection before shipment
from the factory, trouble may occur during operation. Any problem in the fuel,
compression, or ignition systems, for
example, can cause poor starting and
loss of power.
The following troubleshooting chart
represents a quick and easy procedure
for checking these vital systems yourself. However, should your motorcycle
require any repair, take it to a Yamaha
dealer, whose skilled technicians have
the necessary tools, experience, and
know-how to service the motorcycle
properly.
Use only genuine Yamaha replacement parts. Imitation parts may look like
Yamaha parts, but they are often inferior, have a shorter service life and can
lead to expensive repair bills.

NOTICE
Some models are equipped with
matte colored finished parts. Be
sure to consult a Yamaha dealer for
advice on what products to use before cleaning the vehicle. Using a
brush, harsh chemical products or
cleaning compounds when cleaning
these parts will scratch or damage
their surface. Wax also should not
be applied to any matte colored finished parts.

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 prod8-1
Cleaning
ECA10772
NOTICE
●
●
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
plastic parts (such as cowlings,
panels, windshields, headlight
lenses, meter lenses, etc.) and
the mufflers. Use only a soft,
clean cloth or sponge with water to clean plastic. However, if
the plastic parts cannot be thoroughly cleaned with water, diluted mild detergent with water
may be used. Be sure to rinse

off any detergent residue using
plenty of water, as it is harmful
to plastic parts.
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 leave
any marks. If the windshield is
scratched, use a quality plastic
polishing
compound
after
washing.
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 or near the sea
Since sea salt is extremely corrosive,
carry out the following steps after each
ride in the rain or near the sea.
1. Clean the motorcycle with cold water and a mild detergent, after the
engine
has
cooled
down.
NOTICE: Do not use warm water
since it increases the corrosive
action of the salt. [ECA10791]
8-2
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 stainlesssteel exhaust systems can be removed through polishing.)
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.
EWA14501
WARNING
EAU26152
TIP
Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on
what products to use.
Contaminants on the brakes or tires
can cause loss of control.
● Make sure that there is no oil or
wax on the tires.
● If necessary, wash the tires with
warm water and a mild detergent. Before riding at higher
speeds, test the motorcycle’s
braking performance and cornering behavior.
Storage
Short-term
Always store your motorcycle in a cool,
dry place and, if necessary, protect it
against dust with a porous cover. Be
sure the engine and the exhaust system are cool before covering the motorcycle.
ECA10810
NOTICE

ECA10800
NOTICE

●
●
Apply spray oil and wax sparingly and make sure to wipe off
any excess.
Never apply oil or wax to any
rubber and plastic parts, but
treat them with a suitable care
product.
Avoid using abrasive polishing
compounds as they will wear
away the paint.
●
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.
Long-term
Before storing your motorcycle for several months:
1. Follow all the instructions in the
“Care” section of this chapter.
8-3
U1P617E0.book Page 4 Monday, April 11, 2011 8:07 PM
MOTORCYCLE CARE AND STORAGE
2. For motorcycles equipped with a
fuel cock that has an “OFF” position: Turn the fuel cock lever to
“OFF”.
3. Drain the carburetor float chamber
by loosening the drain bolt; this will
prevent fuel deposits from building
up. Pour the drained fuel into the
fuel tank.
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 cylinder, piston rings, 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.)
WARNING! To prevent damage or injury from sparking,
make sure to ground the
spark plug electrodes while
turning the engine over.
[EWA10951]

e. Remove the spark plug cap
from the spark plug, and then
install the spark plug and the
spark plug cap.
Lubricate all control cables and the
pivoting points of all levers and
pedals as well as of the sidestand/centerstand.
Check and, if necessary, correct
the tire air pressure, and then lift
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.
Cover the muffler outlet with a
plastic bag to prevent moisture
from entering it.
Remove the battery and fully
charge it. Store it in a cool, dry
place and charge it once a month.
Do not store the battery in an ex8-4
cessively cold or warm place [less
than 0 °C (30 °F) or more than 30
°C (90 °F)]. For more information
on storing the battery, see page
7-23.
TIP
Make any necessary repairs before
storing the motorcycle.

Keep your Yamaha protected even after your warranty
expires with genuine Yamaha Extended Service (Y.E.S.).
In addition, Travel and Recreation Interruption Protection
(TRIP) is included at no extra cost. TRIP gives you up to
$250 reimbursement per occurrence for any reasonable
expenses you incur because your Yamaha needs
covered service: replacement vehicle rental, emergency
towing, phone calls, even food and lodging when you are

when you purchase Y.E.S., so it applies to any warranty
repairs as well as covered repairs during your entire
Y.E.S. plan period.

Corporation to provide maximum owner satisfaction. You
get uninterrupted factory-backed coverage for extra
peace of mind.
Y.E.S. is flexible. You choose the plan that’s right for
you: 12 months, 24 months, 36 months or, on certain

Y.E.S. coverage is honored at any authorized Yamaha
dealer nationwide.
Y.E.S. is designed and administered by the same
Yamaha people who handle your warranty – and it
shows in the comprehensive coverage benefits. There
are no mileage limitations. Coverage isn’t limited to
“moving parts” or the “drive train” like many other plans.
And Y.E.S. covers manufacturing defects just like the
warranty. See the sample contract at your Yamaha
dealer to see how comforting uninterrupted factorybacked protection can be.
Y.E.S. coverage is transferable to a new owner if you
sell or trade-in. That can make your Yamaha much more
valuable!
This excellent Y.E.S. plan coverage is only available to
Yamaha owners like you, and only while your Yamaha is still
within the Yamaha Limited Warranty period. So visit your
authorized Yamaha dealer to get all the facts. He can show
you how easy it is to protect your investment with Yamaha
Extended Service.

for covered repairs.
