NOTE
If the engine fails starting, open the throttle fully
and depress the kick pedal slowly about 4
times to clear too rich fuel mixtures in the engine.
Then, kick the engine over, leaving the throttle
closed.

Shifting Gears

5
This motorcycle is equipped with a 6-speed "return
shift" transmission. The neutral is located halfway
between 1st and 2nd gear. "Return shift" means
that when shifting up or down, each gear must be
engaged before the next higher or lower gear may
be selected.
To engage 1st gear from the neutral position, pull
in the clutch lever and push down on the shift
pedal, gently release the clutch lever, then release
the shift pedal.
To shift up to the next gear, pull in the clutch lever,
lift the shift pedal with your toes, gently release the
clutch lever, and then release the shift pedal.
To shift down to the next gear, pull in the clutch
lever, push the shift pedal down as far as it will go,
gently release the clutch lever, then release the
shift pedal.
When changing gears, press firmly on the
shift pedal to ensure proper shifting. Care-
less, incomplete shifting can cause the
transmission to jump out of gear and lead to
engine damage.
