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 en-
gine just enough fuel to keep it from
stalling.
A. Shift Pedal
NOTE
The motorcycle is equipped with a
side stand switch. This switch is de-
signed 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 position
should cover the proper rate of speed
shown in the table.
