• Ground clearance is reduced when the motorcycle leans. Do not allow components to contact the road surface
when leaning the motorcycle in a curve, as this could cause loss of control.
• Retract the sidestand fully before riding. If the sidestand is not fully retracted, it could contact the road surface and
cause loss of control.
• Do not tow a trailer. Towing a trailer can make the motorcycle hard to handle, which could cause loss of control.
