G
Brand-new tires can have a rela-
tively poor grip on certain road
surfaces until they have been
"broken in". Therefore, it is ad-
visable before doing any high-
speed riding to ride conserva-
tively for approximately 100 km
(60 mi) after installing a new tire.
G
The tires must be warmed up
before a high-speed run.
G
Always adjust the tire air pres-
sure according to the operating
conditions.
PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AND MINOR REPAIR

Cast wheels

To maximize the performance, durabil-
ity, and safe operation of your vehicle,
note the following points regarding the
specified wheels.
G
The wheel rims should be checked
for cracks, bends or warpage be-
fore each ride. If any damage is
found, have a Yamaha dealer re-
place the wheel. Do not attempt
even the smallest repair to the
wheel. A deformed or cracked
wheel must be replaced.
G
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 han-
dling characteristics, and a short-
ened tire life.
G
Ride at moderate speeds after
changing a tire since the tire sur-
face must first be "broken in" for it
to develop its optimal characteris-
tics.
