MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT

Engine Oil

In order for the engine, transmission,
and clutch to function properly, main-
tain the engine oil at the proper level,
and change the oil and replace the oil
filter in accordance with the Periodic
Maintenance Chart. Not only do dirt
and metal particles collect in the oil, but
the oil itself loses its lubricative quality
if used too long.
WARNING
Motorcycle operation with insuf-
ficient, deteriorated, or contam-
inated engine oil will cause ac-
celerated wear and may result in
engine or transmission seizure,
accident, and injury. Check the
oil level before each ride and
change the oil according to the
periodic maintenance chart in
the Owner's Manual.
Oil Level Inspection
If the oil has just been changed, start
the engine and run it for several min-
utes at idle speed. This fills the oil
filter with oil. Stop the engine, then
wait several minutes until the oil set-
tles.
NOTICE
Racing the engine before the oil
reaches every part can cause en-
gine seizure.
If the motorcycle has just been used,
wait several minutes for all the oil to
drain down.
