After servicing, it takes several applications of the
brake 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 pedal is obtained by pumping the pedal until
the pads are against the disc.
