OPERATION AND IMPORTANT RIDING POINTS
7. When the engine is warm, turn
the starter (choke) off.
NOTE:
The engine is warm when it responds
normally to the throttle with the starter
(choke) turned off.

Starting a warm engine

Follow the same procedure as for
starting a cold engine with the excep-
tion that the starter (choke) is not
5
required when the engine is warm.

Shifting

Shifting gears lets you control the
amount of engine power available for
starting off, accelerating, climbing
hills, etc.
The gear positions are shown in the

N. Neutral
1. Shift pedal
NOTE:
To shift the transmission into the neu-
tral position, press the shift pedal down
repeatedly until it reaches the end of its
EAU16671
travel, and then slightly raise it.
CAUTION
Even with the transmission in
the neutral position, do not
coast for long periods of time
with the engine off, and do not
tow the motorcycle for long
distances. The transmission is
properly lubricated only when
the engine is running. Inade-
quate lubrication may damage
the transmission.

Engine break-in

There is never a more important
period in the life of your engine than
the period between 0 and 1000 km
(600 mi). For this reason, you should
read the following material carefully.
Since the engine is brand new, do not
put an excessive load on it for the first
1000 km (600 mi). The various parts in
ECA10260
the engine wear and polish themsel-
ves to the correct operating clearan-
ces. During this period, prolonged
full-throttle operation or any condition
that might result in engine overhea-
ting must be avoided.
0–150 km (0–90 mi)
Avoid prolonged operation above 1/3
throttle.
5-2
Always use the clutch while
changing gears to avoid dama-
ging the engine, transmission,
and drive train, which are not
designed to withstand the
shock of forced shifting.
