MAINTENANCE - - - - - - - - - -
• The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires manufacturers to certify that
motorcycles built after December 31, 1977 will comply with applicable emissions
standards during their useful life, when operated and maintained according to the
instructions provided. Compliance with the terms of the Distributor's Warranty for
Honda Motorcycle Emission Control Systems is necessary in order to keep the emis-
sions system warranty in effect (USA ONLY) .
• When service is required, remember that your authorized Honda dealer knows your
motorcycle best and is fully equipped to maintain and repair it.
The scheduled maintenance may also be performed by a qualified service facility that
normally does this kind of work; or you may perform most of the work yourself if
are mechanically qualified and have the proper tools and service data.
• These instructions are based on the assumption that the motorcycle will be used ex-
clusively for its designed purpose. Sustained high speed operation, or operation in
unusually wet or dusty conditions will require more frequent service than specified in
the MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE. Consult your authorized Honda dealer for recomen-
dations applicable to your individual needs and use.
