The rear shock absorber inspection should be
done in accordance with the Periodic Maintenance
Rear Shock Absorber Inspection
Sticking muds or dusts on the sliding surface
of the rear shock absorber could damage to
the oil seal, leading to an oil leak. Clean the
sliding surface after each ride.
Pump the seat down and up by 4 or 5 times, and
inspect the smooth stroke.
If it does not smoothly or noise is found, inspect
the oil leak and rear shock absorber mounting.
Visually inspect the rear shock absorber for oil
If necessary, repair or replace by an authorized
MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
Tire Air Pressure
Tire air pressure affects traction, handling, and tire
life. Adjust the tire air pressure to suit track condi-
tions and rider preference, but keep it close within
the recommended range.
To check the tire air pressure, remove the air valve
cap, and make sure to tighten the cap securely
after checking the tire pressure.
Reduce the tire air pressure to increase the tire
tread surface on the ground when riding on a wet,
muddy, sandy or slippery track.
Increase the tire air pressure to prevent damage
or punctures (though the tires will skid more easily)
when riding on a pebbly or hard track.
Tire Air Pressure Adjustable Range
80 ∼ 100 kPa (0.8 ∼ 1.0 kgf/cm², 12 ∼ 14 psi)
Tire air pressure should be checked when the tires
are cold, before you ride the motorcycle.
