2-28 PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
Install the oil filter clamp so that projection [B] fits the slot
[A] of oil cooler.
Be sure to place the rubber tube on the projection.

Tire Wear Check
As the tire tread wears down, the tire becomes more sus-
ceptible to puncture and failure. An accepted estimate is
that 90 % of all tire failures occur during the last 10 % of
tread life (90 % worn). So it is false economy and unsafe to
use the tires until they are bald.
Remove any imbedded stones or other foreign particles
from the tread.
Visually inspect the tire for cracks and cuts, replacing the
tire in case of damage. Swelling or high spots indicate
internal damage, requiring tire replacement.
Measure the tread depth at the center of the tread with a
depth gauge [A]. Since the tire may wear unevenly, take
measurement at several places.
If any measurement is less than the service limit, replace
3.8 mm (0.15 in.) (BRIDGESTONE),
3.8 mm (0.15 in.) (MICHELIN)
Service Limit: 1 mm (0.04 in.),
(DE, AT, CH) 1.6 mm (0.06 in.)
5.8 mm (0.23 in.) (BRIDGESTONE)
5.6 mm (0.22 in.) (MICHELIN)
Service Limit: 2 mm (0.08 in.)
(Up to 130 km/h, 80 mph)
3 mm (0.12 in.)
(Over 130 km/h, 80 mph)
To ensure safe handling and stability, use only the
recommended standard tires for replacement, in-
flated to the standard pressure.
