MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
Mix a mild neutral detergent (de-
signed for motorcycles or automo-
biles) and water in bucket. Use a soft
cloth or sponge to wash your motor-
cycle. If needed, use a mild degreas-
er to remove any oil or grease build
up.
After washing, rinse your motorcycle
thoroughly with clean water to re-
move any residue (residue from the
detergent can damage parts of your
motorcycle).
Use a soft cloth to dry your motor-
cycle. As you dry, inspect your mo-
torcycle for chips and scratches. Do
not let the water air dry as this can
damage the painted surfaces.
Start the engine and let it idle for sev-
eral minutes. The heat from the en-
gine will help dry moist areas.
Carefully ride your motorcycle at a
slow speed and apply the brakes
several times. This helps dry the
brakes and restores them to normal
operating performance.
NOTE
After riding in an area where the
roads are salted or near the ocean,
immediately wash your motorcycle
with cold water. Do not use warm
water as it accelerates the chemical
reaction of the salt. After drying, ap-
ply a corrosion protection spray on
all metal and chrome surfaces to pre-
vent corrosion.
Condensation may form on the in-
side of the headlight lens after riding
in the rain or washing the motor-
cycle. To remove the moisture, start
the engine and turn on the headlight.
Gradually the condensation on the
inside of the lens will clear off.
