After servicing, it takes several applications of the
brake lever or pedal before the brake pads contact
the disc, which could result in increased stopping
distance and cause an accident resulting in injury
or death. Do not attempt to ride the motorcycle until
a firm brake lever or pedal is obtained by pumping
the lever or pedal until the pads are against the disc.

placement in the Periodic Maintenance chapter.
