Drive Chain Cleaning and Lubrication
This machine has a drive chain with small rub-
ber O-rings between the chain plates. Steam
cleaning, high-pressure washes, and certain
solvent can damage these O-rings. Use only
kerosene to clean the drive chain. Wipe it dry,
and thoroughly lubricate it with SAE 30 - 50
motor oil. Do not use any other lubricants on
the drive chain. They may contain solvents
that could damage the O-rings.
Steering Head Adjustment
The steering assembly should be checked
periodically for looseness.
1. Raise the front end of the machine so
that there is no weight on the front
2. Grasp the bottom of the forks and gently
rock the fork assembly backward and
forward, checking for looseness in the
steering assembly bearings.
