 Make sure that there is no oil or
wax on the tires.
 If necessary, wash the tires with
warm water and a mild deter-
gent. Before riding at higher
speeds, test the motorcycle's
braking performance and cor-
nering behavior.
NOTICE
 Apply spray oil and wax spar-
ingly and make sure to wipe off
any excess.
 Never apply oil or wax to any
rubber and plastic parts, but
treat them with a suitable care
product.
 Avoid using abrasive polishing
compounds as they will wear
away the paint.
TIP
Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on
what products to use.
Motorcycle care and storage

Storage

Short-term
Always store your motorcycle in a cool,
dry place and, if necessary, protect it
against dust with a porous cover. Be
sure the engine and the exhaust sys-
tem are cool before covering the mo-
ECA10801
torcycle.
NOTICE
 Storing the motorcycle in a
poorly ventilated room or cover-
ing it with a tarp, while it is still
wet, will allow water and humid-
ity to seep in and cause rust.
 To prevent corrosion, avoid
damp cellars, stables (because
of the presence of ammonia)
and areas where strong chemi-
cals are stored.
Long-term
Before storing your motorcycle for sev-
eral months:
1. Follow all the instructions in the
"Care" section of this chapter.
2. For motorcycles equipped with a
fuel cock that has an "S" (stop)
position: Turn the fuel cock lever
to "S".
3. Drain the carburetor float chamber
by loosening the drain bolt; this
will prevent fuel deposits from
building up. Pour the drained fuel
into the fuel tank.
4. Fill up the fuel tank and add fuel
stabilizer (if available) to prevent
the fuel tank from rusting and the
fuel from deteriorating.
