Air Pressure Adjustment

The standard air pressure in the front fork legs is atmo-
spheric (0 kPa, 0 kgf/cm², 0 psi). Air pressure in the fork
legs increase with normal use, so the fork action stiffens
during operation. Release air pressure from the fork legs
prior to each race through the air pressure relief screw lo-
cated in front fork top plug.
Place the jack under the frame so that the front wheel is
raised off the ground.
