HOW TO RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE
Open the throttle a little, and start to
let out the clutch lever very slowly.
As the clutch starts to engage, open
the throttle a little more, giving the
engine just enough fuel to keep it
from stalling.
A. Shift Pedal
NOTE
The motorcycle is equipped with a
side stand switch. This switch is
designed so that the engine does not
start if the transmission is in gear
and the side stand is down.

Shifting Gears

Close the throttle while pulling in the
clutch lever.
Shift into the next higher or lower
gear.
Open the throttle part way, while re-
leasing the clutch lever.
For smooth riding, each gear posi-
tion should cover the proper rate of
speed shown in the table.
