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 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 you are
approaching
and
passing
through intersections, since intersections are the most likely
places for motorcycle accidents
to occur.
2-1
●
●
• Ride where other motorists can
see you. Avoid riding in another
motorist’s blind spot.
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
U1D714E0.book Page 2 Friday, July 17, 2009 11:44 AM
SAFETY INFORMATION
●
●
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, 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.
●
This motorcycle is designed for onroad use only. 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 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
●
A passenger should also observe
the above precautions.
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 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, along with the information about
accessories below, are some general
guidelines to follow if loading cargo to
your motorcycle:
The total weight of the operator, passenger, accessories and cargo must
not exceed the maximum load limit.
Operation of an overloaded vehicle
could cause an accident.
Maximum load:
210 kg (463 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. 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 and cargo are securely
attached to the motorcycle before
riding. Check accessory mounts
and cargo restraints 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. These
2-3
●
items, including such cargo as
sleeping bags, duffel bags, or
tents, can create unstable handling or a slow steering response.
This vehicle is not designed to
pull a trailer or to be attached to
a sidecar.
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
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.
U1D714E0.book Page 4 Friday, July 17, 2009 11:44 AM
SAFETY INFORMATION
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.
● 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.
• 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-
2-4
●
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 7-15 for tire
specifications and more information on
replacing your tires.

NOTICE
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.
Your Yamaha engine has been designed to use premium unleaded gasoline with a pump octane number
[(R+M)/2] of 91 or higher, or a research
octane number of 95 or higher. If
knocking (or pinging) occurs, use a

and reduce maintenance costs.
Gasohol
There are two types of gasohol: gasohol containing ethanol and that containing methanol. Gasohol containing
ethanol can be used if the ethanol content does not exceed 10% (E10). Gasohol containing methanol is not
recommended by Yamaha because it
can cause damage to the fuel system
or vehicle performance problems.

Engine break-in
There is never a more important period
in the life of your engine than the period
between 0 and 1600 km (1000 mi). For
this reason, you should read the following material carefully.
Since the engine is brand new, do not
put an excessive load on it for the first
1600 km (1000 mi). 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.
EAU17113
0–1000 km (0–600 mi)
Avoid prolonged operation above 2500
r/min. NOTICE: After 1000 km (600
mi) of operation, the engine oil and
transfer case oil must be changed,
and the oil filter cartridge or element
replaced. [ECA10892]

Checking the spark plugs
7
The spark plugs are important engine
components, which should be checked
periodically, preferably by a Yamaha
dealer. Since heat and deposits will
cause any spark plug to slowly erode,
they 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 porcelain insulator around the center electrode of each spark plug should
be a medium-to-light tan (the ideal color
when the vehicle is ridden normally),
and all spark plugs installed in the engine should have the same color. If any
spark plug shows a distinctly different
color, the engine could be operating improperly. Do not attempt to diagnose
such problems yourself. Instead, have
a Yamaha dealer check the vehicle.
If a spark plug shows signs of electrode
erosion and excessive carbon or other
deposits, it should be replaced.
Specified spark plug:
NGK/DPR8EA-9
DENSO/X24EPR-U9
Before installing a spark plug, the spark
plug gap should be measured with a
wire thickness gauge and, if necessary,
adjusted to specification.
1. Spark plug gap
Spark plug gap:
0.8–0.9 mm (0.031–0.035 in)
Clean the surface of the spark plug
gasket and its mating surface, and then
wipe off any grime from the spark plug
threads.
7-9
Tightening torque:
Spark plug:
17.5 Nm (1.75 m·kgf, 12.7 ft·lbf)
TIP
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.

Engine oil and oil filter cartridge
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. A slight tilt to the side can
result in a false reading.
2. Remove the rider seat. (See page
4-13.)
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.
TIP
To achieve the proper engine oil temperature for an accurate oil level reading, the engine must have first
7-10
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 engine oil dipstick clean, insert
it back into the oil filler hole (without screwing it in), and then remove it again to check the oil level.
TIP
The engine oil should be between the
minimum and maximum level marks.

even the smallest repair to the
wheel. A deformed or cracked
wheel must be replaced.
● The wheel should be balanced
whenever either the tire or wheel
has been changed or replaced. An
unbalanced wheel can result in
poor performance, adverse handling characteristics, and a 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.

Clutch lever
Since this model is equipped with a hydraulic clutch, adjusting the clutch lever
free play is not needed. However, it is
necessary to check the clutch fluid level
and check the hydraulic system for
leakage before each ride. (See page
7-18.) If the clutch lever free play does
become excessive, and shifting becomes rough or clutch slippage occurs,
causing poor acceleration, there may
be air in the clutch system. If there is air
in the hydraulic system, have a
Yamaha dealer bleed the system before operating the motorcycle.

Observe these precautions:
● When checking the brake and
clutch fluid levels, make sure that
the top of each reservoir is level.
● Use only the recommended quality
brake fluid, otherwise the rubber
seals may deteriorate, causing
leakage and poor braking or clutch
performance.
●
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.
Recommended brake and clutch fluid:

●
Refill with the same type of brake
fluid. Mixing fluids may result in a
harmful chemical reaction and
lead to poor braking or clutch performance.
Be careful that water does not enter the brake or clutch fluid reservoir when refilling. Water will

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

after
washing.
After normal use
Remove dirt with warm water, a mild
detergent, and a soft, clean sponge,

3. 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.)
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 caps
from the spark plugs, and then
install the spark plugs and the
spark plug caps.
4. Lubricate all control cables and the
pivoting points of all levers and
pedals as well as of the sidestand/centerstand.
5. 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.
6. Cover the muffler outlet with a
plastic bag to prevent moisture
from entering it.
7. 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
°C (90°F)]. For more information
on storing the battery, see page
7-24.
TIP
Make any necessary repairs before
storing the motorcycle.

YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A. STREET AND ENDURO MOTORCYCLE LIMITED
WARRANTY
Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. hereby warrants that
new Yamaha motorcycles will be free from defects in
material and workmanship for the period of time stated
herein, subject to certain stated limitations.
THE PERIOD OF WARRANTY for Yamaha motorcycles
originally equipped with headlight, stoplight, and turn
signals shall be one (1) year from the date of purchase,
with no mileage limitation.
MODELS EXCLUDED FROM WARRANTY include
those used for non-Yamaha-authorized renting, leasing
or other commercial purposes, and TZ models.
DURING THE PERIOD OF WARRANTY, any authorized
Yamaha motorcycle dealer will, free of charge, repair or
replace any part adjudged defective by Yamaha due to
faulty workmanship or material from the factory. Parts used
in warranty repairs will be warranted for the balance of the
product’s warranty period. All parts replaced under
warranty become property of Yamaha Motor Corporation,
U.S.A.
GENERAL EXCLUSIONS from this warranty shall
include any failures caused by:
a) Competition or racing use.
b) Installation of parts or accessories that are not
qualitatively equivalent to genuine Yamaha parts.
c) Abnormal strain, neglect, or abuse.
d) Lack of proper maintenance.
e) Accident or collision damage.
f) Modification to original parts.
THE CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITY under this
warranty shall be to:
1. Operate and maintain the motorcycle as specified in
the appropriate Owner’s Manual, and
2. Give notice to an authorized Yamaha motorcycle
dealer of any and all apparent defects within ten (10)
days after discovery, and make the machine available
at that time for inspection and repairs at such dealer’s
place of business.
WARRANTY TRANSFER: To transfer the warranty from
the original purchaser to any subsequent purchaser, it is
imperative that the machine be inspected and registered
for warranty by an authorized Yamaha motorcycle dealer.
In order for this warranty to remain in effect, this
inspection and registration must take place within ten
(10) days after transfer. An inspection and registration fee
will be charged for this service.
EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY:
Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. also warrants to the
ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser of
each Yamaha motorcycle covered by this warranty with a
displacement of 50cc or greater, that the vehicle is
designed, built, and equipped so as to conform at the
time of sale with all U.S. emissions standards applicable
at the time of manufacture and that it is free from defects
in materials and workmanship which would cause it not
to meet these standards within the period listed
immediately below. Failures other than those resulting
from defects in material or workmanship, which arise
solely as a result of owner abuse and/or lack of proper
maintenance, are not covered by this warranty.
SPECIFIC EXCLUSIONS from this warranty shall
include parts replaced due to normal wear or routine
maintenance.

WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
CUSTOMER SERVICE
Q. What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period?
A. The customer’s responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services,
non-warranty repairs, accident and collision damages, and oil, oil filters, air filters,
spark plugs, and brake shoes.
If your machine requires warranty service, you must take it to any authorized Yamaha
motorcycle dealer within the continental United States. Be sure to bring your warranty
registration card or other valid proof of the original date of purchase. If a question or
problem arises regarding the warranty, first contact the owner of the dealership. Since
all warranty matters are handled at the dealer level, this person is in the best position to
help you. IF you are still not satisfied and require additional assistance, please write to:
Q. What are some examples of “abnormal” strain, neglect, or abuse?
A. These terms are general and overlap each other in areas. Specific examples
include: Running the machine out of oil, sustained high rpm, full-throttle, operating
the machine with a broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail,
damage or failure due to improper or careless transportation and/or tie-down. If
you have any specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your
dealer for advice.
YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A.
CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPARTMENT
P.O. Box 6555
Cypress, California 90630
When contacting Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., don’t forget to include any
important information such as names, addresses, model, V.I.N. (frame number),
dates, and receipts.
Q. Does the warranty cover incidental costs such as towing or transportation due to
a failure?
A. No. The warranty is limited to repair of the machine itself.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS
Q. May I perform any or all of the recommended maintenance shown in the Owner’s
Manual instead of having the dealer do them?
A. Yes, if you are a qualified mechanic and follow the procedures specified in the
Owner’s and Service Manual. We do recommend, however, that items requiring
special tools or equipment be done by a Yamaha motorcycle dealer.
The federal government requires each manufacturer of a motor vehicle to maintain a
complete, up-to-date list of all first purchasers against the possibility of a safetyrelated defect and recall. This list is compiled from the purchase registrations sent to
Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. by the selling dealer at the time of your purchase.
Q. Will the warranty be void or cancelled if I do not operate or maintain my new
motorcycle exactly as specified in the Owner’s Manual?
A. No. The warranty on a new motorcycle cannot be “voided” or “cancelled.” However,
if a particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than as
described in the Owner’s Manual, that failure may not be covered under
warranty.
10
If you should move after you have purchased your new motorcycle, please advise us
of your new address by sending a postcard listing your motorcycle model name, V.I.N.
(frame number), dealer number (or dealer’s name) as it is shown on your warranty
card, your name and new mailing address. Mail to:
YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A.
P.O. Box 6555
Cypress, California 90630
Attention: Warranty Department
Q. What responsibility does my dealer have under this warranty?
A. Each Yamaha motorcycle dealer is expected to:
1. Completely set up every new machine before sale.
2. Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your
satisfaction at the time of sale, and upon your request at any later date.
3. Each Yamaha motorcycle dealer is held responsible for his setup, service and
warranty repair work.
This will ensure that Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. has an up-to-date registration
record in accordance with federal law.
Q. Is the warranty transferable to second owners?
A. Yes. The remainder of the existing warranty can be transferred upon request. The
unit has to be inspected and re-registered by an authorized Yamaha motorcycle
dealer for the policy to remain effective.

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.
