Make sure that there is sufficient fuel in the tank. Fill the fuel tank to the bottom of the filler tube as shown.

EWA10880

WARNING

Do not overfill the fuel tank, otherwise it may overflow when the fuel warms up and expands.

Avoid spilling fuel on the hot engine.

ECA10070

CAUTION:

Immediately wipe off spilled fuel with a clean, dry, soft cloth, since

ECA11400

CAUTION:

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 regular unleaded gasoline with a pump octane number

[(R+M)/2] of 86 or higher, or a research octane number of 91 or higher. If knocking (or pinging) occurs, use a gasoline of a different brand or premium unleaded fuel. Use of unleaded fuel will extend spark plug life and reduce

3-6 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%. Gasohol containing methanol is not recommended by Yamaha because it can cause damage to the fuel system or vehicle performance problems.

To increase the rebound damping force and thereby harden the rebound damping, turn the adjusting dial in direction

(a). To decrease the rebound damping force and thereby soften the rebound damping, turn the adjusting dial in direction (b).

Minimum (soft):

20 clicks in direction (b)*

Standard:

9 clicks in direction (b)*

Maximum (hard):

1 click in direction (b)*

* With the adjusting dial fully turned in direction (a)

NOTE:

Although the total number of clicks of the damping force adjusting mechanism may not exactly match the above specifications due to small differences in production, the actual number of clicks always represents the entire adjusting range. To obtain a precise adjustment, it would be advisable to check the number of clicks of the damping force adjusting mechanism and to modify the specifications as necessary.

EWA10220

WARNING

This shock absorber contains highly pressurized nitrogen gas. For proper handling, read and understand the following information before

3-10

INSTRUMENT AND CONTROL FUNCTIONS handling the shock absorber. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for property damage or personal injury that may result from improper handling.

Do not tamper with or attempt to open the gas cylinder.

Do not subject the shock absorber to an open flame or other

high heat sources, otherwise it may explode due to excessive gas pressure.

Do not deform or damage the gas cylinder in any way, as this will result in poor damping performance.

Always have a Yamaha dealer service the shock absorber.

EAU15300

Sidestand

The sidestand is located on the left side of the frame. Raise the sidestand or lower it with your foot while holding the vehicle upright.

NOTE:

The built-in sidestand switch is part of the ignition circuit cut-off system, which cuts the ignition in certain situations.

(See further down for an explanation of the ignition circuit cut-off system.)

EWA10240

WARNING

The vehicle must not be ridden with the sidestand down, or if the sidestand cannot be properly moved up

(or does not stay up), otherwise the sidestand could contact the ground and distract the operator, resulting in a possible loss of control.

Yamaha’s ignition circuit cut-off system has been designed to assist the operator in fulfilling the responsibility of raising the sidestand before starting off. Therefore, check this system regularly as described below and have a Yamaha dealer repair it if it does not function properly.

PRE-OPERATION CHECKS

EAU15591

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.

EWA11150

WARNING

If any item in the Pre-operation check list is not working properly, have it inspected and repaired before operating the vehicle.
