PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AND MINOR REPAIR
s WARNING
s
Have a Yamaha dealer replace
excessively worn tires. Besides
being illegal, operating the
motorcycle with excessively
worn tires decreases riding
stability and can lead to loss of
control.
The replacement of all wheel-
and brake-related parts, inclu-
ding the tires, should be left to
a Yamaha dealer, who has the
necessary professional know-
ledge and experience.

It is not recommended to patch
a punctured tube. If unavoida-
ble, however, patch the tube
very carefully and replace it as
soon as possible with a high-
quality product.

Spoke wheels

To maximize the performance, durabi-
lity, and safe operation of your
motorcycle, note the following points
regarding the specified wheels.
EWA10570
The wheel rims should be chec-
ked for cracks, bends or warpa-
ge, and the spokes for looseness
or damage before each ride. If
any damage is found, have a
Yamaha dealer replace the whe-
el. Do not attempt even the sma-
llest repair to the wheel. A defor-
med or cracked wheel must be
replaced.
The wheel should be balanced
whenever either the tire or wheel
has been changed or replaced.
An unbalanced wheel can result
in poor performance, adverse
handling characteristics, and a
shortened tire life.
Ride at moderate speeds after
changing a tire since the tire sur-
face must first be "broken in" for
it to develop its optimal characte-
ristics.
