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 dis-
tances. The transmission is
properly lubricated only when
the engine is running. Inade-
quate lubrication may damage
the transmission.
Always use the clutch while
changing gears to avoid dam-
aging the engine, transmission,
and drive train, which are not
designed
to
withstand
shock of forced shifting.

Turn the engine off instead of let-

of time (e.g., in traffic jams, at traf-
fic lights or at railroad crossings).
