Periodic Maintenance Procedures

Rim Runout Inspection

Place the jack under the frame so that the front/rear wheel
off the ground.
Special Tool - Jack: 57001-1238
Inspect the rim for small cracks, dents, bending, or warp-
ing.
If there is any damage to the rim, it must be replaced.
Set a dial gauge against the side of the rim, and rotate
the rim to measure the axial runout [A]. The difference be-
tween the highest and lowest dial readings is the amount
of runout.
Set a dial gauge against the outer circumference of the
rim, and rotate the rim to measure radial runout [B]. The
difference between the highest and lowest dial readings
is the amount of runout.
If rim runout exceeds the service limit, check the wheel
bearings first. Replace them if they are damaged. If the
problem is not due to the bearings, correct the rim warp
(runout). A certain amount of rim warp can be corrected
by recentering the rim. Loosen some spokes and tighten
others within the standard torque to change the position of
different parts of the rim. If the rim is badly bent, however,
it must be replaced.

Axial
TIR 1.0 mm (0.039 in.) or less

Wheel Bearing Inspection

Raise the front/rear wheel off the ground.
Special Tool - Jack: 57001-1238
Spin the wheel lightly, and check for roughness, binding
or noise.
If roughness, binding, abnormal noise is found, replace
the hub bearing.
Turn the handlebar until the handlebar doesn't move to
either side.
The wheel edge is moved to one direction gripping the
edge of the wheel by both hands and the play of the wheel
bearing is checked.
If the play is found, replace the bearing.
