HYDROSTATIC TRANSMISSION WHEN DRIVING Driving a two wheel driven motorcycle is different from driving a conventional motorcycle. The front wheel drive system, during certain conditions, affects the feeling of the handlebar. In sand, mud and snow the traction is greatly improved. However in conditions with deep ruts and slippery surfaces the two wheel drive system might contribute to that the motorcycle feels heavier and more brutal.
ADJUSTMENTS The pulling force, at a given circumstance, can be varied by changing the rear wheel sprocket up or down one tooth. If we increase the no by one tooth the pump rotates faster in relation to the hydraulic motor, thereby increasing the pressure in the system and increasing the pulling force of the front wheel.
INFO SPECIAL TOOLS SPECIAL TOOLS The following special tools are necessary for complete and accurate tune-up and assembly. Use only the appropriate special tools; this will help prevent damage caused by the use of inappropriate tools or improvised techniques. Special tools may differ by shape and part number from country to country. In such a case, two types are provided.

INSP STEERING DAMPER ADJUSTMENT STEERING DAMPER ADJUSTMENT The steering damper is a hydraulic damper that counteracts wobble, alleviates shock against the front wheel and prevents head shake/cast by the motorcycle, which gives safer riding. The damper is fitted on the upper fork crown, in the centre over the steering stem 1.
STEERING DAMPER ADJUSTMENT Damping sweep controls Damping sweep controls 5 are located on each side off the damper body. Damping is in position 2, (12 o´clock), when delivered from Yamaha. This setting is fitted for enduro, motocross and off-road riding. WARNING Always ensure that valve setting is within the permitted ranges.
Change the fluid regularly. In new dampers after 10 hours riding and then every 20 hours riding. Use only recommended fluid that is tested and ap- proved by Yamaha. We cannot guarantee fully ac- ceptable operation using other fluids. NOTE: Regular maintenance and inspection counteracts possible malfunction.
