HOW TO RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE
KIBS is not designed to shorten the
braking distance. On loose, uneven
or downhill surfaces, the stopping
distance of a motorcycle with KIBS
may be longer than that of an equiv-
alent motorcycle without KIBS. Use
special caution in such areas.
KIBS will help prevent wheel lock-up
when braking in a straight line, but it
cannot control wheel slip which may
be caused by braking during corner-
ing. When turning a corner, it is bet-
ter to limit braking to a light applica-
tion of both brakes or not to brake at
all. Reduce your speed before you
get into the corner.
Same as conventional brake system,
an excessive sudden braking may
cause wheel lock up that makes it
harder to control a motorcycle.
KIBS will not prevent the rear wheel
lifting.
WARNING
KIBS cannot protect the rider
from all possible hazards and
is not a substitute for safe rid-
ing practices. Be aware of how
the KIBS system operates and
its limitations. It is the rider's
responsibility to ride at appro-
priate speeds and manner for
weather, road surface and traffic
conditions.
