Engine Oil

In order for the engine, transmission and clutch
to function properly, maintain the engine oil at the
proper level, and change the oil and oil filter in ac-
cordance with the Periodic Maintenance Chart.
Not only do dirt and metal particles collect in the
oil, but the oil itself loses its lubricative quality if used
too long.
WARNING
Motorcycle operation with insufficient, de-
teriorated, or contaminated engine oil will
cause accelerated wear and may result in en-
gine or transmission seizure, accident, and
injury. Check the oil level before each ride
and change the oil according to the periodic
maintenance chart in the Owner's Manual.
NOTICE
Racing the engine before the oil reaches ev-
ery part can cause engine seizure.
MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT

Oil Level Inspection

If the oil has just been changed, let the motorcycle
sit a few minutes allowing the oil to settle.
Start the engine and run it for several minutes at
idle speed. Do not run the engine at high en-
gine speed.
Stop the engine and wait several minutes for the
oil to settle.
Check the engine oil level with the motorcycle ver-
tical through the oil level inspection window on the
lower right side of the engine. The oil level should
come up between the high and low level lines next
to the oil level inspection window.
NOTE
If the oil level is too high, remove the excess oil
using a syringe or other suitable device.
If the oil level is too low, add the correct amount
of oil through the oil filler opening. Use oil of the
same type and brand as those of the one that is
already in the engine.
