SAFETY INFORMATION
EAU10250
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 intersec-
1-1
●
●
tions 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 motorcycle 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 motorcycle accidents have
been caused by error of the motorcycle operator. A typical error
made by the operator is veering
1
U5VN11E0.book Page 2 Tuesday, April 13, 2004 5:24 PM
SAFETY INFORMATION

●
●
wide on a turn due to EXCESSIVE
SPEED or undercornering (insufficient lean angle for the speed).
• 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, 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.
●
This motorcycle is designed for onroad use only, therefore, it is not
suitable for off-road use.
●
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 which 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.
● Never touch the engine or exhaust
system during or after operation.
They become very hot and can
1-2
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.
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:
U5VN11E0.book Page 3 Tuesday, April 13, 2004 5:24 PM
SAFETY INFORMATION
Loading
The total weight of the operator, passenger, accessories and cargo must
not exceed the maximum load limit of
XV17A 194 kg (428 lb)
XV17AW 194 kg (428 lb)
XV17AM 194 kg (428 lb)
XV17AT 179 kg (395 lb)
XV17ATM 179 kg (395 lb). 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 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.
● 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,
1-3
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.
• 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 opera-
1
U5VN11E0.book Page 4 Tuesday, April 13, 2004 5:24 PM
SAFETY INFORMATION

●
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.
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.
• 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 is turned to “ON” or “RES” (for
vacuum type) / “OFF” (for manual
type). If it 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
1-4
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.

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.

Removing and installing the
panel
Checking the spark plugs
The spark plugs are important engine
components, which are easy to check.
Since heat and deposits will cause any
spark plug to slowly erode, the spark
plugs should be removed and checked
in accordance with the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart. In addition,
the condition of the spark plugs can reveal the condition of the engine.
The panel shown needs to be removed
to perform some of the maintenance
jobs described in this chapter. Refer to
this section each time the panel needs
to be removed and installed.

To install the panel
Place the panel in the original position,
and then install the bolt.

To check the spark plugs
1. Check that the porcelain insulator
around the center electrode on
each spark plug is a medium-tolight tan (the ideal color when the
vehicle is ridden normally).
2. Check that all spark plugs installed
in the engine have the same color.
NOTE:
If any 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.
To install a spark plug
1. Measure the spark plug gap with a
wire thickness gauge and, if necessary, adjust the gap to specification.
2. Clean the surface of the spark plug
gasket and its mating surface, and
then wipe off any grime from the
spark plug threads.
3. Install the spark plug with the
spark plug wrench, and then tighten it to the specified torque.
Tightening torque:
Spark plug:
17.5 Nm (1.75 m·kgf, 12.5 ft·lbf)
NOTE:
If a torque wrench is not available when
installing a spark plug, a good estimate
of the correct torque is 1/4–1/2 turn
past finger tight. However, the spark
plug should be tightened to the specified torque as soon as possible.
4. Install the spark plug cap.

The engine oil level should be checked
before each ride. In addition, the oil
must be changed and the oil filter cartridge replaced at the intervals specified in the periodic maintenance and
lubrication chart.
This model is equipped with a canister
to prevent the discharging of fuel vapor
into the atmosphere. Before operating
this vehicle, make sure to check the following:
● Check each hose connection.
● Check each hose and canister for
cracks or damage. Replace if damaged.
● Make sure that the canister breather is not blocked, and if necessary,
clean it.
To check the engine oil level
1. Place the vehicle on a level surface and hold it in an upright position.
NOTE:
Make sure that the vehicle is positioned
straight up when checking the oil level.
A slight tilt to the side can result in a
false reading.
NOTE:
To achieve the proper engine oil temperature for an accurate oil level reading, the engine must have first
completely cooled down, and then
warmed up again for several minutes to
normal operating temperature.
4. Wait a few minutes until the oil settles, remove the oil filler cap, wipe
the dipstick clean, insert it back
into the oil filler hole (without
screwing it in), and then remove it
again to check the oil level.
NOTE:
The engine oil should be between the
minimum and maximum level marks.
2. Remove the rider seat. (See page
3-10.)
3. Start the engine, warm it up until
the engine oil has reached a normal temperature of 60 °C (140 °F),
let it continue to idle for ten seconds, and then turn the engine off.

Checking the brake fluid level
Front brake
1. Minimum level mark

Before riding, check that the brake fluid
is above the minimum level mark and
replenish if necessary. A low brake fluid
level may indicate worn brake pads
and/or brake system leakage. If the
brake fluid level is low, be sure to check
the brake pads for wear and the brake
system for leakage.
Observe these precautions:
● When checking the fluid level,
make sure that the top of the brake
fluid reservoir is level.
● Use only the recommended quality
brake fluid, otherwise the rubber
seals may deteriorate, causing
leakage and poor braking performance.
Recommended brake fluid:
DOT 4
●
1. Minimum level mark
Refill with the same type of brake
fluid. Mixing fluids may result in a
harmful chemical reaction and
lead to poor braking performance.
Insufficient brake fluid may allow air to
enter the brake system, possibly causing it to become ineffective.
6-25
●
●
●
Be careful that water does not enter the brake fluid reservoir when
refilling. Water will significantly
lower the boiling point of the fluid
and may result in vapor lock.
Brake fluid may deteriorate painted surfaces or plastic parts. Always clean up spilled fluid
immediately.
As the brake pads wear, it is normal for the brake fluid level to gradually go down. However, if the
brake fluid level goes down suddenly, have a Yamaha dealer
check the cause.

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.

MOTORCYCLE CARE AND STORAGE
ucts onto seals, gaskets, the drive
belt and wheel axles. Always rinse
the dirt and degreaser off with water.
EAU26081
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 outlets with plastic bags 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 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 prod-

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.
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
7-1
●
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.

U5VN11E0.book Page 2 Tuesday, April 13, 2004 5:24 PM
MOTORCYCLE CARE AND STORAGE
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. After drying the motorcycle, apply
a corrosion protection spray on all
metal, including chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces to prevent corrosion.
Windshield cleaning
Avoid using any alkaline or strong acid
cleaner, gasoline, brake fluid, or any
other solvent. Clean the windshield with
a cloth or sponge dampened with a
neutral detergent, and after cleaning,
thoroughly wash it off with water. For
additional cleaning, use Yamaha Windshield Cleaner or other quality cleaner.
Some cleaning compounds for plastics
may leave scratches on surfaces of the
windshield. Before using them, make a
test by polishing an area which does
not affect your visibility.
7-2
After cleaning
1. Dry the motorcycle with a chamois
or an absorbing cloth.
2. 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.)
3. To prevent corrosion, it is recommended to apply a corrosion protection spray on all metal,
including chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces.
4. Use spray oil as a universal cleaner to remove any remaining dirt.
5. Touch up minor paint damage
caused by stones, etc.
6. Wax all painted and chrome-plated surfaces. Avoid combination
cleaner waxes, many of which
contain abrasives that may mar
the paint or protective finish.
7. Let the motorcycle dry completely
before storing or covering it.

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.
ECA10950
CAUTION:
●
●
●
●
Apply spray oil and wax sparingly and make sure to wipe off
any excess.
Never apply oil or wax to the
drive belt.
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.
NOTE:
Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on
what products to use.
Saddlebag cleaning and care
Clean the saddlebag on each side using a high-quality saddle soap. Rub the
surface of the soap using a damp cloth
or sponge to produce a lather, and then
apply it to the surface of the saddlebags. Allow the lather to dry, and then
polish the saddlebags with a soft cloth.
If the saddlebags have been exposed
to severe weather conditions and have
become faded, or been scuffed, use a
fine boot creme to return the leather to
its original rich, even color.
Exposure to the elements can dry out
the leather over time. Therefore, an occasional application of a good quality
mink oil is recommended to restore the
leather and lift its water resistance.
Make sure that the saddlebags are
clean and dry before applying the mink
oil. Using a soft cloth or a dauber, work
a thin coat of mink oil into the leather
7-3
surface of the saddlebags. Wipe off any
excess oil immediately and allow the
saddlebags to dry for several hours.

Storage
Short-term
Always store your motorcycle in a cool,
dry place and, if necessary, protect it
against dust with a porous cover.
ECA10810
CAUTION:
●
●
7
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.
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 chambers by loosening the drain bolts;
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 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.
c. Install the spark plug caps onto
the spark plugs, and then 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, and then
install the spark plugs and the
spark plug caps.
7-4
EWA10950
WARNING
To prevent damage or injury from
sparking, make sure to ground the
spark plug electrodes while turning
the engine over.
6. Lubricate all control cables and the
pivoting points of all levers and
pedals as well as of the sidestand/centerstand.
7. 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.
8. Cover the muffler outlets with plastic bags to prevent moisture from
entering them.
9. 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 excessively cold or warm place [less
than 0 °C (30 °F) or more than 30

YAMAHA EXTENDED SERVICE (Y.E.S.)
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
$150 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
away from home. This superb coverage goes into effect
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.
Y.E.S. is designed and administered by Yamaha Motor
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
models, even 48 months beyond your warranty period.
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.
You don’t have to pay anything for covered repairs.
There’s no deductible to pay, and repairs aren’t
“pro-rated.” You don’t have any “out-of-pocket” expenses
for covered repairs.
