Moving off

1) Disengage the clutch squeezing the control lever.
2) Push down on gear change lever sharply with the tip
of your foot to engage the first gear.
3) Speed up engine, by turning the throttle twistgrip and
slightly releasing the clutch lever at the same time. The
motorcycle will start moving off.
4) Let go of clutch lever and speed up.
5) To shift up, close the throttle to slow down engine,
disengage the clutch, lift the gear change lever and let go
of clutch lever.
To shift down, release the twistgrip, pull the clutch
control lever, shortly speed up to help gears synchronise,
shift down and release the clutch.
The controls should be used correctly and timely: when
riding uphill do not hesitate to shift down as soon as the
motorcycle tends to slow down, so you will avoid
stressing the engine and the motorcycle abnormally.
Avoid harsh accelerations, as this may lead to
misfiring and transmission snatching. The clutch lever
should not be pulled longer than necessary after gear is
engaged, or friction parts may overheat and wear out.
