NOTE
Tighten the two clamp bolts alternately two times
to ensure even tightening torque.
Check the front brake for good braking power and
no brake drag.
WARNING
After servicing, it takes several applications
of the brake lever before the brake pads con-
tact the disc, which could result in increased
stopping distance and cause an accident re-
sulting in injury or death. Do not attempt to
ride the motorcycle until a firm brake lever is
obtained by pumping the lever until the pads
are against the disc.
Adjust the compression and rebound damping
force adjusters.
Before riding, adjust the air pressure to the specific
valve.
Fork Height Adjustment
Steering is greatly affected by the fork height (how
much the outer fork tubes protrude above the up-
per fork clamp). The less the fork tube protrudes,
the lighter the front end becomes and the greater
the tendency for understeering and washout due to
weight biasing. Increasing the amount of fork tube
protrusion has opposite effects.
Be sure that the front tire does not touch the fender
when the fork is fully compressed.
MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
NOTICE
The right and left fork tubes must be adjusted
evenly.
