WELCOME
The motorcycle presents you a challenge to master the machine,
a challenge to adventure. You ride through the wind, linked to the
road by a vehicle that responds to your commands as no other
does. Unlike an automobile, there is no metal cage around you.
Like an airplane, a preride inspection and regular maintenance are
essential to your safety. Your reward is freedom.
To meet the challenges safely, and to enjoy the adventure fully,
you should become thoroughly familiar with this owner's manual
BEFORE YOU RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE.
When service is required, remember that your Honda dealer knows
your motorcycle best. If you have the required mechanical “know-
how” and tools, your dealer can supply you with an official Honda
Service Manual to help you perform many maintenance and repair
tasks.
Pleasant riding, and thank you for choosing a Honda!

MOTORCYCLE SAFETY
SAFE RIDING RULES
A WARNING
Motorcycle riding requires special efforts on your part to ensure
your safety. Know these requirements before you ride:
. Always make a pre-ride inspection (page 44) before you ride the
motorcycle.
You may prevent an accident or equipment damage.
. Many accidents involve inexperienced riders. Most states require
a special motorcycle riding test or license. Make sure you are
qualified before you ride. NEVER lend your motorcycle to an
inexperienced rider.
. Many automobile/motorcycle accidents happen because the au-
tomobile driver does not “see” the motorcyclist.
Make yourself conspicuous to help avoid the accident that wasn't
your fault:
e Wear bright or reflective clothing.
e Don't ride in another motorist's “blind spot.”
. Obey all national and local laws and regulations.
e Excessive speed is a factor in many accidents. Obey the speed
limits, and NEVER travel faster than conditions warrant.
e Signal before you make a turn or lane change. Your size and
maneuverability can surprise other motorists.
. Don't let other motorists surprise you. Use extra caution at in-
tersections, parking lot entrances and exits, and driveways.
. Keep both hands on the handiebars and both feet on the footpegs
while riding. A passenger should hold on to the motorcycle or
the operator with both hands and keep both feet on the
passenger footpegs.
CAUTION:
e Do not ride over curbs or rub the wheel against an obstacle, as
wheel damage may result.
MOTORCYCLE SAFETY
PROTECTIVE APPAREL
1. Most motorcycle accident fatalities are due to head injuries:
ALWAYS wear a helmet. You should also wear a face shield or
goggles as well as boots, gloves, and protective clothing. A
passenger needs the same protection.
2. The exhaust system becomes hot during operation, and it
remains hot for a while after stopping the engine. Be careful not
to touch the exhaust system while it is hot. Wear clothing that
fully covers your legs.
3. Do not wear loose clothing which could catch on the control
levers, footpegs, or wheels.
MODIFICATIONS
Á WARNING
e Modification of the motorcycle, or removal of original
equipment, may render the vehicle unsafe or illegal. Obey all
federal, state and local equipment regulations.
LOADING AND ACCESSORIES
A WARNING
To prevent an accident, use extreme care when adding and
riding with accessories and cargo. Addition of accessories and
cargo can reduce a motorcycle's stability, performance and safe
operating speed. Never ride an accessory-equipped motorcycle
at speeds above 130 km (80 mph). And remember that this 130
km (80 mph) limit may be reduced by installation of non-Honda
accessories, improper loading, worn tires and overall motorcy-
cle condition, poor road or weather conditions. These general
guidelines may help you decide whether or how to equip your
motorcycle, and how to load it safely.
Loading
The combined weight of the rider, passenger, cargo and addi-
tional accessories must not exceed 205 kg (452 165), 195 Ка (430
Ib); Equipped with the ABS and TCS, the maximum weight capacity.
Cargo weight alone should not exceed 27 kg (60 Ibs).
1.
Keep cargo and accessory weight low and close to the center of
the motorcycle. Load weight equally on both sides to minimize
imbalance. As weight is located farther from the motorcycle’s
center of gravity, handling is proportionally affected.
. Adjust tire pressure (page 30).
. All cargo and accessories must be secure for stable handling.
Recheck cargo security and accessory mounts frequently.
MOTORCYCLE SAFETY
. Do not attach large, heavy items to the handlebars, fork, or
fender. Unstable handling or slow steering response may re-
sult.
. Do not exceed the maximum weight capacity of Honda acces-
sories.
Saddlebag: 9 kg (20 Ibs) Each side
Fairing pocket: 2 kg (5 Ibs) Each side
. The Honda fairing and saddlebag are designed for this motor-
cycle only. Do not install them on any other motorcycle.
. Do not store articles between fairing and motorcycle. They may
interfere with steering causing loss of control.
. Do not use the handlebars to hold the motorcycle with a rope
during transportation or the handlebars may be bent.
Accessories
Genuine Honda accessories have been specifically designed for
and tested on this motorcycle. Because the factory cannot test all
other accessories, you are personally responsible for proper selec-
tion, installation, and use of non-Honda accessories.
Always follow the guidelines under Loading, and these:
1.
Carefully inspect the accessory to make sure it does not ob-
scure any lights, reduce ground clearance and banking angle,
or limit suspension travel, steering travel or control operation.
. Large fork-mounted fairings or windshields, or poorly designed
or improperly mounted fairings can produce aerodynamic forces
that cause unstable handling. Do not install fairings that de-
crease cooling air flow to the engine.
. Accessories which alter your riding position by moving hands
or feet away from controls may increase reaction time in an
emergency.
. Do not add electrical equipment that will exceed the motorcycle’s
electrical system capacity. A blown fuse could cause a dangerous
loss of lights or engine power.
. This motorcycle was not designed to pull a | sidecar or trailer.
Handling may be seriously impaired if so equipped.
. Any modification of the cooling system may cause overheating
and serious engine damage. Do not modify the radiator shrouds
or install accessories which block or deflect air away from the
radiator.

BRAKES
Both front and rear brakes are hydraulic disc types.
As the brake pads wear, the brake fluid level will drop. Therefore,
the brake fluid level and pad wear must be inspected periodically.
The system must be inspected frequently to ensure there are no
fluid leaks.
NOTE:
If the control lever or pedal free travel becomes excessive and the
brake pads are not worn beyond the recommended limit (page
86), there is probably air in the brake system and it must be bled.
See your authorized Honda dealer for this service.
| Brake fluid may cause irritation. Avoid contact with skin or
eyes. In case of contact, flush thoroughly with water and call
a doctor if your eyes were exposed.
e KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
CAUTION:
oe When adding brake fluid, be sure the reservoir is horizontal
before the cap is removed or brake fluid may spill out.
e Use only DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed container.
e Never allow contaminants such as dirt or water to enter the
brake fluid reservoir.
e Handle brake fluid with care because it can damage plastic and
painted surfaces.

CLUTCH
This motorcycle has a hydraulically actuated clutch. There are no
adjustments to perform but the clutch system must be inspected
periodically for fluid level and leakage. If the control lever freeplay
becomes excessive and the motorcycle creeps or stalls when shifted
into gear, or if the clutch slips, causing acceleration to lag behind
engine speed, there is probably air in the clutch system and it
must be bled out. See your authorized Honda dealer for this service.
Fluid tevel:
Check that the fluid level is above the LOWER LEVEL LINE. If the
fluid level is near the LOWER LEVEL LINE, it indicates fluid leakage.
See your authorized Honda dealer for repair.

COOLANT
Coolant Recommendation
The owner must properly maintain the coolant to prevent freezing,
overheating, and corrosion. Use only high quality ethylene glycol
antifreeze containing corrosion protection inhibitors specifically
recommended for use in aluminum engines. (SEE ANTIFREEZE
CONTAINER LABEL).
CAUTION:
e Use only low-mineral drinking water or distilled water as a part
of the antifreeze solution. Water that is high in mineral content
or salt may be harmful to the aluminum engine.
The factory provides a 50/50 solution of antifreeze and water in
this motorcycle. This coolant solution is recommended for most
operating temperatures and provides good corrosion protection.
A higher concentration of antifreeze decreases cooling system
performance and is recommended only when additional protection
against freezing is needed. A concentration of less than 40/60 (40%
antifreeze) will not provide proper corrosion protection. During
freezing temperatures, check the cooling system frequently and
add higher concentrations of antifreeze (up to a maximum of 60%
antifreeze) if required.
Inspection
The reserve tank is behind the right side cover or right side cowl
(Equipped with the ABS and TCS). Check the coolant level in the
reserve tank while the engine is at normal operating temperature.
If the coolant is low, remove the right side cover or right side cowl
(page 66) and add coolant to the reserve tank as required to bring
the coolant level to the UPPER level mark.
If the reserve tank is empty, or if coolant loss is excessive, check
for leaks and see your authorized Honda dealer for repair.
e Do not remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. The
coolant is under pressure and could scald you.
e Keep hands and clothing away from the cooling fan, as it starts
automatically.

Use unleaded or low-lead petrol with a research octane number of
91 or higher. We recommend that you use unleaded petrol because
it produces fewer engine and spark plug deposits and extends the
life of exhaust system components.
FOR AUSTRALIA ONLY:
Use unleaded petrol with a research octane number of 91 or higher.
Never use stale or contaminated petrol or an oil/petrol mixture.
Avoid getting dirt, dust or water in the fuel tank. Use of a lower
octane petrol can cause persistent “pinging” or heavy “spark
knock” (a metallic rapping noise) which, if severe, can lead to
engine damage. |
24
CAUTION:
If “spark knock” or “pinging” occurs at a steady engine speed
under normal load, change brands of petrol. If spark knock or
pinging persists, consult your authorized Honda dealer. Failure
to do so is considered misuse, and damage caused by misuse
is not covered by Honda's Limited Warranty.
Occasionally you may experience light spark knock while operating
under heavy loads. This is no cause for concern, it simply means
your engine is operating efficiently.
Install the fuel tank cap by turning it clockwise. Be sure to properly
route the hose attached to the top of the cap.
Close the fuel filler compartment lid with the key inserted and
turned clockwise, then turn the key counterclockwise to lock the
lid.
Petrol is extremely flammable and is explosive under certain
conditions. Refuel in a well-ventilated area with the engine
stopped. Do not smoke or allow flames or sparks in the area
where petrol is stored or where the fuel tank is refueled.
Do not overfill the tank (there should be no fuel in the filler
neck). After refueling, make sure the tank cap is closed properly
and securely.
Be careful not to spill fuel when refueling. Spilled fuel or fuel
vapor may ignite. If any fuel is spilled, make sure the area is
dry before starting the engine.
Avoid repeated or prolonged contact with skin or breathing of
vapor. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
25
MAJOR COMPONENTS
(Information you need to operate this motorcycle)
Petrol Containing Alcohol
If you decide to use a petrol containing alcohol (gasohol), be sure
its octane rating is at least as high as that recommended by Honda.
There are two types of “gasohol”: one containing ethanol, and the
other containing methanol. Do not use gasohol that contains more
than 10% ethanol. Do not use petrol containing methanol (methyl
or wood alcohol) that does not also contain cosolvents and
corrosion inhibitors for methanol. Never use petrol containing more
than 5% methanol, even if it has cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors.
NOTE:
e Fuel system damage or engine performance problems resulting
from the use of fuels that contain alcoho! are not covered under
the warranty. Honda cannot endorse the use of fuels containing
methanol since evidence of their suitability is as yet incomplete.
* Before buying fuel from an unfamiliar station, try to find out if
the fuel contains alcohol. If it does, confirm the type and
percentage of alcohol used. If you notice any undesirable
operating symptoms while using a petrol that contains alcohol,
or one that you think contains alcohol, switch to a petrol that
you know does not contain alcohol.
26
ENGINE OIL
Check engine oil level each day before operating the motorcycle.
To check the oil level:
1. Place the motorcycle on its center stand on firm, level ground.
2. Start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes.
3. Stop the engine. After a few minutes, check the oil level
inspection window.
The oil level should be between the upper and lower level marks.
4. If required, remove the airduct/maintenance cover (page 66)
and filler cap, add the specified oil up to the upper level mark.
Do not overfill.
5. Reinstall the filler cap.
CAUTION:
e Running the engine with insufficient oil can cause serious engine
damage.

TUBELESS TIRES
This motorcycle is equipped with tubeless tires, valves, and wheel
rims. Use only tires marked “TUBELESS” and tubeless valves on
rims marked “TUBELESS TIRE APPLICABLE.”
Never mount tires designed for use on automobiles on a motorcycle
rim.
A WARNING
e Any attempt to mount passenger car tires on à motorcycle rim
may cause the tire bead to separate from the rim with enough
explosive force to cause serious injury or death.
Proper air pressure will provide maximum stability, riding comfort,
proper ABS and TCS operation (For some types) and tire life.
Check tire pressure frequently and adjust if necessary.
NOTE:
e Tire pressure should be checked before you ride while the tires
are “cold.”
e Tubeless tires have some degree of self-sealing ability if they
are punctured, and leakage is often very slow. Inspect very
closely for punctures, especially if the tire is not fully inflated.

A WARNING
The use of tires other than those listed pn the tire information
label may adversely affect handling.
Do not install tube-type tires on tubeless rims. The beads may
not seat and the tires could slip on the rims, causing tire de-
flation that may result in a loss of vehicle control.
Any attempt to mount passenger car tires on a motorcycle rim
may cause the tire bead to separate from the rim with enough
explosive force to cause serious injury or death.
Do not install a tube inside a tubeless tire. Excessive heat build-
up may cause the tube to burst resulting in rapid tire deflation
that may result in a loss of vehicle control.
Proper wheel balance is necessary for safe, stable handling of
the motorcycle. Do not remove or change any wheel balance
weights. When wheel balancing is required, see your authorized
Honda dealer. Wheel balancing is required after tire repair or
replacement.
To avoid possible repair failure and tire deflation that may result
in a loss of vehicle control, do not exceed 80 km (50 mph) for
the first 24 hours, or 130 km (80 mph) at any time, after tire
repair.
Replace the tire if the sidewall is punctured or damaged.
Sidewall flexing may cause repair failure and tire deflation that
may result in a loss of vehicle control.
CAUTION:
Do not try to remove tubeless tires without special tools and
rim protectors. You may damage the rim sealing surface or
disfigure the rim.
When replacing tires, use the same tires those listed on the tire
information label. Use of other tires may impair in the proper
ABS and TCS function (Equipped with the ABS and TCS).

STARTING THE ENGINE
This motorcycle is equipped with a side stand ignition cut-off
system. The engine cannot be started if the side stand is down,
unless the transmission is in neutral. If the side stand is up, the
engine can be started in neutral or in gear with the clutch lever
pulled in. After starting with the side stand down, the engine will
stop if the transmission is put in gear before raising the side stand.
o Never run the engine in an enclosed area. The exhaust contains
poisonous carbon monoxide gas that can cause loss of
consciousness and lead to death.
e Do not flood the engine by twisting the throttle repeatedly.
The carburetor has an accelerator pump.
NOTE:
e Do not use the electric starter for more than 5 seconds at a
time. Release the starter button for approximately 10 seconds
before pressing it again.
Preparation
Before starting, insert the key, turn the ignition switch ON and
confirm the following:
e The transmission is in NEUTRAL (neutral indicator light ON).
e The engine stop switch is at RUN.
e The ABS Warning Light, TCS Warning Light, TCS OFF Indicator
and TCS Activation Light are ON (For Some Types). (See pages
13—14).
e The red engine oil pressure warning light is ON.
CAUTION:
* The red oil pressure warning light should go off a few seconds
after the engine starts. If the light stays on, stop the engine
immediately and check engine oil level. Operating the engine
with insufficient oil pressure can cause serious engine damage.
45
OPERATION
Starting Procedure
1. Pull the choke lever to the fully ON (B) position, if the engine is
cold.
2. Press the starter button.
3. Warm up the engine until it runs smoothly with the choke OFF
(A).
NOTE:
e Do not open the throttle when starting the engine with the
choke on. This will lean the mixture, resulting in hard starting.
Choke Lever
CAUTION:
e Extended use of the choke may impair piston and cylinder wall
lubrication.
Flooded Engine
If the engine fails to start after repeated attempts, it may be flooded
with excess fuel. To clear a flooded engine, turn the engine stop
switch OFF and push the choke lever up to Fully Off (A). Open the
throttle fully and crank the engine for 5 seconds. Wait 10 seconds,
then turn the engine stop switch ON and follow the Starting
Procedure.
46
BREAK-IN
During initial break-in, newly machined surfaces will be in contact
with each other and these surfaces will wear in quickly. Break-in
maintenance at 1,000 km (600 miles) is designed to compensate
for this initial minor wear. Timely performance of break-in
maintenance will ensure optimum service life and performance
from the engine.
The general rules are as follows:
1.
2.
Never lug the engine with full throttle at low engine speeds.
This rule is applicable not only during break-in but at all times.
Maximum continuous engine speed during the first 1,000 km
(600 miles) must not exceed 4,000 rpm.
. Increase the maximum continuous engine speed by 1,000 rpm
between odometer readings of 1,000 km (600 miles) and 1,600
km (1,000 miles). Drive briskly, vary speeds frequently and use
full throttle for short bursts only. Do not exceed 6,000 rpm.
. Upon reaching an odometer reading of 1,600 km (1,000 miles),
you can subject the motorcycle to full throttle operation.
However, do not exceed 8,000 rpm at any time (tachometer red
zone limit).
CAUTION:
The red bar indicates the maximum limit of engine speed and
running the engine in the red bar will adversely affect its service
life.
47
OPERATION
RIDING
Review Motorcycle Safety (pages 1—5) before you ride.
NOTE:
e Make sure the function of the side stand mechanism (See
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE on page 61 and explanation for SIDE
STAND on page 87.)
Proper shifting will provide better fuel economy.
À WARNING
e Do not downshift when traveling at a speed that would force
the engine to overrev in the next lower gear; the rear wheel
may lose traction, resulting in a possible loss of vehicle control.
CAUTION:
e Do not shift gears without disengaging the clutch and closing
the throttle. The engine and drive train could be damaged by
overspeed and shock.
e Do not tow the motorcycle or coast for long distances while
the engine is off. The transmission will not be properly lubricated
and damage may result.
e Do not run the engine at high rpm with the transmission in
neutral or the clutch lever pulled in. Serious engine damage
may result.
NOTE:
e Be careful when revving the engine or accelerating in 1st or 2nd
gear as the engine speed will easily enter the red bar.
48
BRAKING
1.
For normal braking, gradually apply both the front and rear
brakes while downshifting to suit your road speed.
2. For maximum deceleration, close the throttle and apply the front
and rear brakes firmly. Pull in the clutch lever before coming to
a complete stop to prevent stalling the engine.
À WARNING
Independent operation of only the brake lever or brake pedal
reduces stopping performance.
Extreme application of the brake controls may cause wheel
lock, reducing control of the motorcycle.
When possible, reduce speed or brake before entering a turn;
closing the throttle or braking in mid-turn may cause wheel
slip. Wheel slip will reduce control of the motorcycle.
When riding in wet or rainy conditions, or on loose surfaces,
the ability to maneuver and stop will be reduced. All of your
actions should be smooth under these conditions. Sudden
acceleration, braking or turning may cause loss of control. For
your safety, exercise extreme caution when braking, accelerating
or turning.
When descending a long, steep grade, use engine compression
braking by downshifting, with intermittent use of both brakes.
Continuous brake application can overheat the brakes and
reduce their effectiveness.
Riding with your foot resting on the brake pedal or your hand
on the brake lever may actuate the brakelight, giving a false
indication to other drivers. It may also overheat the brakes,
reducing effectiveness.
49
OPERATION
ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM (ABS)
(For Some Types)
The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) is designed to help prevent
wheel lock up during hard braking or during braking on uneven
surfaces while running straight.
ABS cannot make up for road conditions, bad judgement, or im-
proper operation of the brakes. It is still your responsibility to ride
at reasonable speeds for weather, road surface, and traffic con-
ditions, and to leave a margin of safety.
ABS is self-checking and is always ON. You may feel a pulsing in
the brake lever or pedal or hear the sound of a small electric
motor right after starting the engine. This is normal. It indicates
that the system is checking itself.
A WARNING
* Though your motorcycle is equipped with ABS, avoid driving
on snow-covered road, frozen surface, etc.
e In some situations, a motorcycle with ABS may require a longer
stopping distance to stop on loose or uneven surfaces than an
equivalent motorcycle without ABS.
NOTE:
e You may hear the sound of a small electric motor when the
ABS is active.
e ABS may be activated by ridding over a sharp drop or rise in
the road level.
You may feel a pulsation in the brake pedal and lever when you
operate the brake system. This is normal indicating that the ABS
is active. While, you may not feel a pulsation in the brake pedal
and lever according to the road condition. This is normal, too.
50
NOTE
e It is important to follow the tire recommendations (see page
30). The ABS computer works by comparing wheelspeed. Non-
recommended tires can affect wheelspeed and may confuse the
ABS computer.
* ABS does not function at low speeds (approximately 7 km/h or
below).
e The ABS does not function if the battery is discharged.
ABS Warning Light
Normally, this light comes on when the ignition is turned ON and
goes off after starting to ride (see page 14). If there is an ABS
problem, the warning light comes on and remains on — or blinks.
The system does not operate when the ABS warning light is ON
or blinking.

51
OPERATION
If the ABS warning light blinks while riding, stop the motorcycle
in a safe place and turn off the engine.
Turn the ignition ON again. The light should come on, and then go
off after starting to ride. If it does not go off or if it blinks again,
ABS is not functioning, but the brakes still work like a conventional
system and provide normal stopping ability. However, you should
have the system checked by an authorized Honda dealer as soon
as possible.
NOTE
e The ABS warning light may blink if you turn the rear wheel
placing the motorcycle upright on the stand. This is normal.
Turn the ignition OFF to stop the blinking.
CAUTION
* Two LED bulbs are used for the ABS warning light. Be sure
that both bulbs light when the ignition is ON. If either or both
bulbs fail to light, See your authorized Honda dealer.

OPERATION
TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM (TCS)
(For Some Type)
The traction control system (TCS) is assists you in maintaining
traction by regulating the spinning force of the rear wheel that is
often caused by change in the road surface while running straight.
When riding on loose, slippery, or uneven surfaces, you may notice
the engine does not respond to the throttle in the same way it
usually does. This is a sign that TCS is activated and operating.
The TCS Activation Light will turn on to signal you. Once you
know TCS is active, reduce your throttle input and ride with extra
care.
The TCS automatically placed in the ON mode when the ignition
is ON.
The TCS is the system that assists you in throttle operation and it
does not make up for a rough driving. It is still your responsibility
to ride at reasonable speeds and to leave a sufficient margin of
safety.
A WARNING
* Though your motorcycle is equipped with TCS, avoid driving
on snow-covered road, frozen surface, etc.
NOTE:
e Engine intake and exhaust noise may change when the TCS is
active.
e TCS may be activated by ridding over a sharp drop or rise in
the road level.

the switch is pushed again, the TCS turns ON and the TCS OFF
indicator turns OFF.
The TCS repeats ON and OFF alternately when the switch is pushed.
A WARNING
e Do not operate the switch while riding the motorcycle.
Operating the motorcycle with one or both hands away from
the handlebar/controls may result in a loss of vehicle control.

or blinking.
If the TCS warning light blinks while riding, stop the motorcycle in
a safe place and turn off the engine.
Turn the ignition ON again. The light should come on, and then go
off after starting to ride. If it does not go off or if it blinks again,
the TCS is not functioning, you can drive the motorcycle without
TCS. However, have the system checked by an authorized Honda
dealer as soon as possible.
NOTE:
e When the TCS warning light blinks, the TCS is automatically
disabled and the TCS OFF indicator turns on.

STORAGE GUIDE
Extended storage, such as for winter, requires that you take certain
steps to reduce the effects of deterioration from non-use of the
motorcycle. In addition, necessary repairs should be made BEFORE
storing the motorcycle; otherwise, these repairs may be forgotten
by the time the motorcycle is removed from storage.
STORAGE
1. Change the engine oil and filter.
2. Make sure the cooling system is filled with a 50/50% antifreeze
solution.
3. Drain the fuel tank and carburetor into an approved gasoline
container. Spray the inside of the tank with an aerosol rust-
inhibiting oil.
Reinstall the fuel cap on the tank.
NOTE:
e If storage will last more than one month, carburetor draining is
very important, to assure proper performance after storage.
A WARNING
eo Petrol is extremely flammable and is explosive under certain
conditions. Perform this operation in a well-ventilated area with
the engine stopped. Do not smoke or allow flames or sparks in
the area where petrol is drained or stored and where the fuel
tank is refueled.
4. Remove the spark plugs and pour a tablespoon (15—20 cc) of
clean engine oil into each cylinder. Crank the engine several
times to distribute the oil, then reinstall the spark plugs.
NOTE:
e When turning the engine over, the Engine Stop Switch should
be OFF and each spark plug placed in its cable cap and grounded
to prevent damage to the ignition system.
5. Remove the battery. Store in an area protected from freezing
temperatures and direct sunlight. Slow charge the battery once
a month,
94
