7 -
A. CLEANING
Frequent, thorough cleaning of your
motorcycle will not only enhance its ap-
pearance but will improve its general
performance and extend the useful life
of many components.
1. Rinse the dirt and degreaser off
with a garden hose.
CAUTION:
_
Excessive hose pressure may cause
water seepage and deterioration of
wheel bearings, front fork, brakes,
transmission seals and electrical
parts.

2. After cleaning the motorcycle, dry
all surfaces with a chamois, clean
towel, or soft absorbent cloth.
3. Automotive-type wax may be ap-
plied to all painted and chrome-
plated surfaces. When finished,
start the engine and let it idle for
several minutes.

B. STORAGE
Long term storage (60 days or more) of
your motorcycle will require some pre-
ventive procedures to guard against
deterioration. After thoroughly cleaning
the motorcycle, prepare for storage as
follows:
1. Drain the fuel tank, fuel lines, and
EUU34602
carburetor float bowl(s).
2. Lubricate all control cables.
3. Block up the frame to raise both
wheels off the ground.
4. Tie a plastic bag over the exhaust
pipe outlet to prevent moisture
from entering.
5. If storing in a humid or salt-air at-
mosphere, coat all exposed metal
surfaces with a light film of oil. Do
not apply oil to any rubber parts or
the seat cover.
6. Remove the battery and charge it.
