Wheels (Rims)
Replace the cotter pin [A] with a new one.
Insert a new cotter pin.
Bend the cotter pin over the axle.
A loose axle nut can lead to an accident resulting in
serious injury or death. Tighten the axle nut to the
proper torque and install a new cotter pin.
Adjust the drive chain slack (see Drive Chain Slack In-
spection in the Periodic Maintenance chapter).
Check the rear brake for good braking power and no
brake drag.
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.
