2-28 PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Wheel Bearing Inspection
Raise the front/rear wheel off the ground using the jack.
Special Tools - Jack: 57001-1238
Jack Attachment: 57001-1608
Rotate [A] the wheel lightly, and check for roughness,
binding or noise.
If any damage is found, replace the hub bearing.
Turn the handlebars until the handlebars does not move
to either side (front wheel).
The wheel edge is moved [A] 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.
Drive Chain Wear Inspection
Rotate the rear wheel to inspect the drive chain for dam-
aged rollers, and loose pins and links.
If there is any irregularity, replace the drive chain.
Lubricate the drive chain if it appears dry.
Pin Link [D]
Roller Link [E]
Stretch the chain taut by hanging a 10 kg (22 lb) weight
[A] on the chain.
Measure the length of 20 links [B] on the straight part [C] of
the chain from the pin center of the 1st pin to the pin center
of the 21st pin. Since the chain may wear unevenly, take
measurements at several places.
Drive Chain 20-link Length
254.0 ∼ 254.6 mm (10.00 ∼ 10.02 in.)
259 mm (10.2 in.)
If any measurements exceed the service limit, replace the
chain. Also, replace the front and rear sprockets when the
drive chain is replaced.
