Filling the Fuel Tank
Avoid filling the tank in rainy or dusty
conditions where airborne material can
contaminate the fuel.
Contaminated fuel may cause damage to
fuel system components.
Fill the fuel tank slowly to help prevent
spillage. Do not fill the tank to a level above
the bottom of the filler neck. This will ensure
there is enough air space to allow for fuel
expansion if the fuel inside the tank expands
through absorption of heat from the engine
or from direct sunlight.

2. Maximum fuel level
After refuelling always check that the fuel
filler cap is correctly closed.
Overfilling the tank can lead to fuel
If fuel is spilled, thoroughly clean up the
spillage immediately and dispose of the
materials used safely.
Take care not to spill any fuel on the
engine, exhaust pipes, tires or any other
part of the motorcycle.
Because fuel is highly flammable, any fuel
leak or spillage, or any failure to observe
the safety advice given above may lead to
a fire hazard, which could cause damage to
property and injury or death to persons.
Fuel spilled near to, or onto the tires will
reduce the tire's ability to grip the road.
This will result in a dangerous riding
motorcycle control and an accident.
