Steering Inspection

Lubricate and inspect the condition of the
steering
head
(headstock)
accordance with scheduled maintenance
requirements.
Note:
Always inspect the wheel bearings
at the same time as the steering
bearings.
Warning
To prevent risk of injury from the
motorcycle falling during the inspection,
ensure that the motorcycle is stabilized and
secured on a suitable support. Do not
exert extreme force against each wheel or
rock each wheel vigorously as this may
cause the motorcycle to become unstable
and cause injury by falling from its support.
Ensure that the position of the support
block will not cause damage to the sump.
