Side stand (fig. 24)
Before lowering the side stand, make sure that the
bearing surface is hard and flat.
Do not park on soft or pebbled ground or on asphalt melt
by the sun heat and similar or the motorcycle may fall
When parking in downhill road tracts, always park the
motorcycle with its rear wheel facing downhill.
To pull down the side stand, hold the motorcycle
handlebars with both hands and push down on the thrust
arm (1) with your foot until it is fully extended. Tilt the
motorcycle until the side stand is resting on the ground.
Do not sit on the motorcycle when it is supported
on the side stand.
To move the side stand to its rest position (horizontal
position), tilt the motorcycle to the right and, at the same
time, lift the thrust arm (1) with your foot.
Check for proper operation of the stand mechanism
(two springs, one into the other) and the safety sensor (2)
at regular intervals.
It is possible to start the engine with side stand
down and the gearbox in neutral. When starting the bike
with a gear engaged, pull the clutch lever (in this case the
side stand must be up).
