ENGINE
• Check the oil quantity within 5 min-
utes after the engine is shut off.
Over 5 minutes, idle the engine
again and recheck the oil quantity.
• Do not leave the check bolt for the
oil quantity upper limit removed.
Otherwise, the oil level drops with
time in the engine, allowing the oil
to flow out.
• Engine oil also luburicates the
clutch and the wrong oil types or
additives could cause clutch
slippage. Therefore, do not add
any chemical additives or use en-
gine oils with a grade of CD or
higher and do not use oils la-
beled "ENERGY CONSERVING
II".
• Do not allow foreign material to
enter the crankcase.
