HOW TO RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE
Close the throttle while pulling in the
Shift into the next higher or lower
Downshifting to a lower gear at
high speed causes engine rpm to
increase excessively, potentially
damaging the engine and it may
also cause the rear wheel to skid
and cause an accident. Down-
shifting should be done below 5
000 rpm for each gear.
Open the throttle half way, while re-
leasing the clutch lever.
The transmission is equipped with a
positive neutral finder. When the
motorcycle is standing still, the trans-
mission cannot be shifted past neu-
tral from 1st gear. To use the positive
neutral finder, shift down to 1st gear,
then lift up on the shift pedal while
standing still. The transmission will
shift only into neutral.
