ing this oil change, remove the fol-
lowing parts and reinstall them.
Replacement steps:

new one.
c. Install the oil filter element and oil
filter element cover.
Oil filter element cover:
10 Nm (1.0 m•kg, 7.2
ft•lb)
5. Install:
• Gaskets
• Oil drain bolt (oil pan)
Oil drain bolt (oil pan):
20 Nm (2.0 m•kg, 14
ft•lb)
• Oil drain bolt (oil tank)
Oil drain bolt (oil tank):

ENGINE
ADJUSTING THE ENGINE IDLING
SPEED
• Because the air pressure is lower at
high altitudes, the air-fuel mixture
will become richer. If the engine
idling speed is low, turn the starter
(choke) knob/idling screw a few
clicks counterclockwise to increase
the idling speed.
• Before adjusting the engine idling
speed, make sure that the com-
pression pressure is within specifi-
cation and that the air filter element
is not clogged.
• Adjust the engine idling speed with
the starter (choke) knob/idling
screw pushed in completely.
1. Start the engine and warm it up
until the engine oil has reached
the specified temperature.
2. Use a temperature probe tester
"1" and contact it to the drain bolt
thread.
Oil temperature:
55.0–65.0 °C
(131–149°F)
3. Adjust:
• Engine idling speed
Adjustment steps:
a. Turn the starter knob/idle screw
"1" until the specified engine idling
speed is obtaind.
Using the digital tachometer, mea-
sure the engine speed with the detec-
tor "c" pinched in the high tension
cord "2" of the ignition coil.
Digital tachometer:
YU-39951-B/90890-
06760
To increase the engine idling
speed → Turn the starter
(choke) knob/idling screw
counterclockwise "a".
To decrease the engine idling
speed → Turn the starter
(choke) knob/idling screw
clockwise "b".
