Insert a new cotter pin [A].
When inserting the cotter pin, if the slots in the nut do
not align with the cotter pin hole in the axle, tighten the
nut clockwise [B] up to next alignment.
It should be within 30 degree.
Loosen once and tighten again when the slot goes past
the nearest hole.
Bend the cotter pin [A] over the nut.
If the rear axle nut is not securely tightened or the
cotter pin is not installed, an unsafe riding condi-
tion may result.
Check the rear brake for weak braking power and brake
Wheel Alignment Inspection/Adjustment
Check that the notch [A] on the left belt adjuster [B] aligns
with the same swingarm mark [C] or position that the right
belt adjuster notch aligns with.
If they do not, adjust the belt deflection (see Belt Deflec-
tion Adjustment) and align the wheel alignment.
Wheel alignment can be also checked using the
straightedge or string method.
Misalignment of the wheel will result in abnormal
wear, and may result in an unsafe riding condition.
