EAU10281
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 you are
approaching
and
passing
through intersections, since intersections are the most likely
places for motorcycle accidents
to occur.
1-1
●
• 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
1
U29S10E0.book Page 2 Friday, May 18, 2007 1:53 PM
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.
● 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.
A passenger should also observe
the above precautions.
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:
U29S10E0.book Page 3 Friday, May 18, 2007 1:53 PM
SAFETY INFORMATION
Loading
The total weight of the operator, passenger, accessories and cargo must
not exceed the maximum load limit.
Maximum load:
274 kg (604 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 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.
● 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
U29S10E0.book Page 4 Friday, May 18, 2007 1:53 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. If the motorcycle
should lean over, gasoline may
leak out of the 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
1-4
or clothing, immediately wash the
affected area with soap and water
and change your clothes.

PRE-OPERATION CHECKS
EAU15593
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.

Checking the spark plugs
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.
Tightening torque:
Spark plug:
17.5 Nm (1.75 m·kgf, 12.7 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.

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.

●
Use only the specified replacement tires. Other tires may run
the danger of bursting at super
high speeds.
Brand-new tires can have a relatively poor grip on certain road
surfaces until they have been
“broken in”. Therefore, it is advisable before doing any highspeed riding to ride conservatively for approximately 100 km
(60 mi) after installing a new tire.
The tires must be warmed up
before a high-speed run.
Always adjust the tire air pressure according to the operating
conditions.
EAU21960
Cast wheels
To maximize the performance, durability, and safe operation of your vehicle,
note the following points regarding the
specified wheels.
● The wheel rims should be checked
for cracks, bends or warpage before each ride. If any damage is
found, have a Yamaha dealer replace the wheel. Do not attempt
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.

Insufficient brake or clutch fluid may allow air to enter the brake or clutch systems, possibly causing them to become
ineffective.
NOTE:
The rear brake fluid reservoir is located
under the rider seat. (See page 3-11.)
Before riding, check that the brake and
clutch fluids are above the minimum
level marks and replenish if necessary.
A low brake or clutch fluid level may indicate brake or clutch system leakage
and/or worn brake pads. If the brake or
clutch levels are low, be sure to check
the brake or clutch systems for leakage
and the brake pads for wear.
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.
Recommended brake and clutch fluid:
DOT 4 brake 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
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

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.

Care
ECA15192
CAUTION:
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.
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 prod7-1

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. 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

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.
1. Clean the motorcycle with cold water and a mild detergent, after the
engine has cooled down.
ECA10790
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.

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.
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.)

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

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.
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.
