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 com-
mands as no other does, Unlike an automobile, there is no metal cage around you. Like
an airplane, a pe-ride 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 MOTORCY-
CLE.
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 Shop Manual to help you perform many maintenance and repair
tasks.
Pleasant riding, and thank you for choosing a Honda!

| V WARNING
* Motorcycle riding requires special efforts on your part to ensure your safety. Know
these requirements before you ride.
SAFE RIDING RULES
|.
Always make a pre-ride inspection (page
24) before you start the engine. You
may prevent an accident or equipment
damage.
. Many accidents involve inexperienced
riders. Most states require a special
riding test or license. Make sure you
are qualified before you ride. NEVER
lend your motorcycle to an inexperi-
enced rider.
. Many automobile/motorcycle acci-
dents happen because the automobile
driver does not “see” the rider, Make
yourself conspicuous to help avoid the
accident that wasn’t your fault:
e Don't ride in another motorist’s
“blind spot.”
4. 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 maneuverabili-
ty can surprise other motorists.
. Don’t let other motorists surprise you.
Use extra caution at intersections, park-
ing lot entrances and exits, and
driveways.
6. Keep both hands on the handlebars and
both feet on the floor boards while
riding.
. Moderate your speed when riding over
bumpy roads. Avoid hitting road
hazards, such as sharp bumps and
holes in the road surface. These haz-
ards can cause loss of control or struc-
tural damage to the vehicle.
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.
The exhaust system becomes very hot
during operation, and it remains hot
after operation. Never touch any part of
the hot exhaust system. Wear clothing
that fully covers your legs.
. Do not wear loose clothing which could
catch on the control levers or wheels.
LOADING AND ACCESSORIES
* A motorcycle is sensitive to changes in
weight distribution. Improper loading
of cargo and mounting of accessories
can impair the motorcycle's stability
and performance. To prevent an acci-
dent, use extreme care when mounting
accessories and riding with cargo,
These general guidelines may help you
decide whether or how to equip your
motorcycle, and how to load it safety.
The vehicle load limit is 82 kg (180 1bs.).
The combined weight of the rider, and
cargo must not exceed this limit,
1. Do not exceed these following weight
limits for the luggage rack.
Overloading the luggage rack will ad-
versely affect stability and handling.
Front (Basket) Rear (Corrier)
3 Кв (7 155.) 5 Кв (11 165.)
. Keep cargo weight low and close to
the center of the motorcycle. As
weight is located farther from the
motorcycle’s center of gravity, han-
dling is proportionally affected.
. All cargo and accessories must be secure
for stable handling. Recheck security
frequently.
. Do not carry items that protrude
through the rack or block the taillight.
. Do not carry children or pets on the lug-
gage rack.
. Do not install another fairing or modify
the existing one,
TIRES
Proper air pressure will provide maximum
traction, stability, riding comfort and tire
life.
Check tire pressures frequently and adjust
if necessary (see page 2).
NOTE:
* Tire pressure should be checked when
the tires are ‘‘cold’’, before you ride.
Check the tires for cuts, imbedded nails, or
other sharp objects. See your authorized
Honda motor dealer for replacement of
damaged tires or punctured inner tubes.
* Improper tire inflation will cause abnor-
mal tread wear and create a safety
hazard. Underinflation may result in the
tire slipping on, or coming off of the
rim.
* Operation with excessively worn tires is
hazardous and will adversely affect trac-
tion and handling.
* Do not attempt to patch a damaged tire
or inner tube. Wheel balance and tire
reliability may be impaired.
* Replace tires before tread depth at the
center of the tires reaches the following
limit:
Minimum tread depth
0.8 mm (1/32 in)
MODIFICATIONS
* Modification of the motorcycle or re-
moval of original equipment may
render the vehicle unsafe or illegal,
Obey all national, state and local equip-
ment regulations.

Oil Recommendation
USE HONDA 2 STROKE OIL OR ITS
EQUIVALENT.
CAUTION:
* The use of improper oils may cause
excessive and/or premature carbon
build up in the engine and exhaust
system, resulting in loss of power and
possible engine damage. Genuine
Honda 2-Stroke Oil has been specifi-
cally designed and tested in Honda
motorcycles and is a proper oil,
* If the engine has run after the oil in-
dicator light has come on, check the
tube from the oil tank to the oil pump.
If air is present in this tube, do not
start the engine. The motorcycle must
be taken to an authorized Honda
dealer for inspection and bleeding of
the oil system. Failure to do this will
result in serious engine damage.
NOTE:
* When filling, do not let dirt or other
foreign materials enter the tank.
23
PRE-RIDE INSPECTION
* If the Pre-ride Inspection is not per-
formed, serious damage or an accident
may result.
Inspect your motorcycle every day before
you start the engine. The items listed here
will only take a few minutes to check
and, in the long run, can save time, ex-
pense, and possibly your life.
1. Oil level-check the level and if necessary
add oil (page 23).
2. Fuel level-fill the fuel tank when
necessary (page 22). Check for leaks.
3. Front and rear brakes-check operation
and if necessary, adjust free play
(pages 40—41).
4. Tires-check condition and pressure
(pages 2, 6).
5. Throttle-check for smooth opening and
closing in all steering positions.
24
6. Lights and horn- check that the
headlight, tail/stoplight, turn signals, in-
dicators and horn function properly.
Correct any discrepancy before you ride.
Contact your authorized Honda dealer
for assistance if you cannot correct the
problem.

BREAK-IN
During the first 300 km (200-miles), do
not operate the motorcycle at more than
80% of the maximum speed.
Avoid full throttle operation, and do not
operate for a long time at one speed.
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 300 km (200
miles) is designed to compensate for this
initial minor wear. Timely performance
of the break-in maintenance will ensure
optimum service life and performance
from the engine.
RIDING THE MOTORCYCLE 1. Make sure the throttle is closed and
the rear brake is locked before moving
the motorcycle off the center stand.

ANTI-THEFT TIPS
1.
Always lock the steering and never leave
the key in the ignition switch. This
sounds simple but people do forget.
. Be sure the registration information
for your motorcycle is accurate and
current,
. Park your motorcycle in a locked
garage whenever possible.
. Use an additional anti-theft device of
good quality.
. Put your name, address, and phone
number in this Owner’s Manual and
keep it on your motorcycle at all
times.
Many times stolen motorcycles are
identified by information in the
Owner’s Manuals which are still with
them.

Wear Indicator:
When the brake is applied, an arrow (2) at-
tached to the brake arm (3) moves toward a
reference mark (1) on the brake panel.
If the arrow aligns with the reference mark
on full application of the brake, the brake
shoes must be replaced. See your autho-
rized Honda dealer for this service,

Other Checks:
Check the brake cable for kinks or signs of
wear that could cause sticking or failure.
Lubricate the brake cable with a commer-
cially available cable lubricant to prevent
premature wear and corrosion.
Make sure the brake arm, spring and
fasteners are in good condition.

BATTERY
It is not necessary to check battery elec-
trolyte level or add distilled water as the
battery is a sealed type. If any los of elec-
trolyte is experienced or if your battery
seems to be weak, causing slow starting or
other electrical troubles, see your author-
ized Honda dealer.
CAUTION:
* Do not attempt to remove the caps
from the cells.
* When the motorcycle is to be stored
for an extended period of time, re-
move the battery from the motorcycle
and charge it fully. Then store it in a
cool, dry place. If the battery is to be
left in the motorcycle, disconnect the
negative cable from the battery termi-
nal.
CIT
* Keep away from open flames or sparks
when handling a battery.

FUSE REPLACEMENT
The fuse holder is near the battery. The
specified fuse is 7A. When frequent fuse
failure occurs, it usually indicates a short
circuit or an overload in the electrical sys-
tem. If this happens, the electrical system
should be checked visually for damaged
insulation or other possible malfunctions.
If the problem cannot be located visually,
the motorcycle should be examined by
an authorized Honda dealer.
(1) Fuse holder
* Never use a fuse with a different rating
from that specified. Serious damage to
the electrical system or a fire may result,
causing a dangerous loss of lights or
engine power at night or in traffic.
CAUTION:
* Turn the ignition switch OFF before
checking or replacing the fuse to prevent
accidental short-circuiting.
43
* Do not pry the clips open to get a fuse
out; you could bend them and cause
poor contact with the new fuse. A loose
fuse could cause damage to the electrical
system and even start a fire.
To replace the fuse, open the fuse holder
and lift out the fuse with the clips. Slide the
old fuse out of the clips and discard it. Slide
the clips onto the ends of the new fuse, push
them back into the fuse holder, and close
the fuse holder.
