HOW TO RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE
NOTE
If you drive the motorcycle before
the engine is warmed up, release the
choke lever as soon as you start
moving.
If the choke lever is left on too long
after the engine is warm, it will cause
the spark plug to foul, and poor gas
mileage.
NOTICE
Do not let the engine idle longer
than five minutes, or engine over-
heating and damage may occur.

Jump Starting

If your motorcycle battery is "run
down", it should be removed and
charged. If this is not practical, a 12
volt booster battery and jumper cables
may be used to start the engine.
DANGER
Battery acid generates hydrogen
gas which is flammable and ex-
plosive under certain conditions.
It is present within a battery at all
times, even in a discharged con-
dition. Keep all flames and sparks
(cigarettes) away from the bat-
tery. Wear eye protection when
working with a battery. In the
event of battery acid contact with
skin, eyes, or clothing, wash the
affected areas immediately with
water for at least five minutes.
Seek medical attention.
Connecting Jumper Cables
Make sure the ignition switch is
turned off.
