Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Clutch Hose and Pipe Damage and Installation
The high pressure inside the clutch line can cause fluid
to leak [A] or the hose to burst if the line is not properly
maintained. Bend and twist the rubber hose while exam-
Replace it if any fraying, cracks [B] or bulges [C] are no-
Check that the hoses are securely connected and banjo
bolts are tightened correctly.
Torque - Clutch Hose Banjo Bolts: 25 N·m (2.5 kgf·m, 18
When installing the clutch hose, route the hoses accord-
ing to Cable, Wire, and Hose Routing section in the Ap-
Replace the hose if it has been sharply bent or kinked.
Wheels and Tires
Tire Air Pressure Inspection
Remove the air valve cap.
Measure the tire air pressure with an air pressure gauge
[A] when the tires are cold (that is, when the motorcycle
has not been ridden more than a mile during the past 3
Adjust the tire air pressure according to the specifications
Air Pressure (when Cold)
Up to 180 kg (397 lb)
200 kPa (2.00 kgf/cm², 28 psi)
Up to 97.5 kg (215 lb)
250 kPa (2.50 kgf/cm², 36 psi)
97.5 ∼ 180 kg (215 ∼ 397 lb)
280 kPa (2.80 kgf/cm², 40psi)
Install the air valve cap.
Wheel/Tire Damage Inspection
Remove any imbedded stones [A] or other foreign parti-
cles [B] from tread.
Visually inspect the tire for cracks and cuts, and replace
the tire if necessary. Swelling or high spots indicate inter-
nal damage, requiring tire replacement.
Visually inspect the wheel for cracks, cuts and dents dam-
If any damage is found, replace the wheel if necessary.
Tire Tread Wear Inspection
As the tire tread wears down, the tire becomes more sus-
ceptible to puncture and failure. An accepted estimate is
that 90% of all tire failures occur during the last 10% of tread
life (90% worn). So it is false economy and unsafe to use
the tires until they are bald.
