In order to perform this operation correctly,
we advise you to do it when the engine

ADJUSTING FORK
ADJUSTING THE REBOUND
DAMPER
The hydraulic brake unit in extension
determines the behaviour in the extension
phase of the fork and can be adjusted using screw 1. Turning clockwise increases
the action of the brake in extension, while
rotating counter-clockwise decreases the
action of the brake in extension.

ADJUSTMENTS
For standard calibration, refer to page 10.
ADJUSTING THE SPRING
PRELOAD
Spring preload is adjusted by means of
screw 2. Turning clockwise will increase
the preload, while rotating counter- clockwise decreases the preload.

For standard calibration, refer to page 10.
SHOCK ABSORBER
ADJUSTING THE REBOUND
DAMPER
The hydraulic brake unit in extension determines the behaviour in the extension phase
of the shock absorber and can be adjusted
using screw 1. Turning clockwise increases
the action of the brake in extension, while
rotating counter-clockwise decreases the
action of the brake in extension.
For standard calibration, refer to page 10.

ADJUSTING THE SPRING
PRELOAD
To adjust the spring preload, use the procedure described below.
Loosen counter-ring 1, rotate ring 2 clockwise to increase the spring preload (and
consequently the shock absorber preload)

considerable wear.
WARNING:
After each operation check that no
object is left in the filter box.
SPARK PLUG
Keeping the spark plug in good condition
will reduce fuel consumption and increase
engine performance.
To perform the check, simply slide off the
electrical connection tube and unscrew the
spark plug. Examine the distance between
the electrodes with a feeler. This distance
should be from 0.7÷0.8 mm. If it is not,
it may be corrected by bending the earth
electrode.
Check as well that there are no cracks in
the insulation or corroded electrodes. If so,
replace immediately.

CLEANING THE VEHICLE
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
WARNING: Wash motorbikes frequently with cold water that are used near
the sea (salty air) and on roads subject to salt spreading in winter. Cover with
a film of oil or silicone spray unpainted parts and the most exposed parts such
as wheels, forks and swingarm. Do not treat rubber parts and brakes.
When cleaning, avoid direct exposure to sunlight.
Close off the exhaust system to prevent water from entering.
Avoid directing the jet of water onto the air filter box cover and the carburettor.
WASHING MODE
Use water jet to soften the dirt and mud accumulated on the paintwork, then remove
them with a soft bodywork sponge soaked in water and shampoo. Subsequently
rinse well with water, and dry with air and cloth or suede leather.
Detergents pollute water. Always wash the vehicle in areas equipped for collection
and purification of the washing liquids.
AFTER WASHING
Proceed to the emptying of the filter box using the appropriate ventilation and drying.
After cleaning, ride a short distance until the engine reaches operating temperature.
WARNING: braking effect is reduced with wet brakes. Operate the
brakes cautiously to allow them to dry.
CHECKS AND MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Do not clean your vehicle with a high-pressure device with a
strong jet of water. Excessive pressure can reach electrical components, connectors, flexible cables, bearings, etc and can damage or destroy them.
Push back the handlebar control covers, so that water can evaporate.
When the bike is completely dry and cooled down, lubricate all moving parts.
Treat all plastic and painted components with non-aggressive detergents or products
that are specific for the care of the motorcycle.

PROLONGED INACTIVITY
A few simple operations should be performed to keep the vehicle in good condition
whenever it is to remain inactive for a long period (e.g. during the winter):
•Thoroughly clean the vehicle.
•Reduce the tyre pressures by approximately 30 percent, and if possible raise the
tyres off the ground.
•Remove the spark plug and pour a few drops of engine oil into the spark plug hole.
Make the engine turn a few times by operating the kick-start (where available) and
then replace the spark plug.
•Cover the unpainted parts, excepting the brakes and the rubber parts, with a film
of oil or spray silicone.
•Protect the vehicle with a dust cover.
•Drain the carburetor tank as described at page 42.
AFTER PROLONGED INACTIVITY
•Restore the tyre inflating pressures.
•Check the tightening of all the screws having an important mechanical function.
