Periodic Maintenance Procedures

Fuel Tank Cleaning

Clean the fuel tank in a well-ventilated area, and
take care that there is no sparks or flame anywhere
near the working area. Because of the danger of
highly flammable liquids, do not use gasoline or low
flash-point solvent to clean the tank.
Remove the fuel tank and drain it (see Fuel Tank Removal
in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter).
Remove the fuel pump (see Fuel Pump Removal in the
Fuel System (DFI) chapter).
Pour some high-flash point solvent into the fuel tank and
shake the tank to remove dirt and fuel deposits.
Drain the solvent out of the tank.
Dry the tank with compressed air.

Cooling System

To avoid burns, do not remove the radiator cap or
try to change the coolant when the engine is still
hot. Wait until it cools down.
Coolant on tires will make them slippery and can
cause an accident and injury. Immediately wash
away any coolant that spills on the wheels.
Since coolant is harmful to the human body, do not
use for drinking.
The coolant should be changed periodically to en-
sure long engine life.

Coolant Level Inspection

Check the level when the engine is cold (room or ambi-
ent temperature).
Lean the motorcycle slightly until the radiator cap is level
to the ground so that the radiator cap is located uppermost
in order to exhaust the air accumulated in the radiator.
Remove the radiator cap [A].
Remove the radiator cap in two steps. First turn the
cap counterclockwise to the first stop and wait there for
a few seconds. Then push down and turn it further in
the same direction and remove the cap.
