SETTINGS AND ADJUSTMENTS
Adjustment of the control lever and check of the clutch fluid level
Free play (A) must be at least 3 mm (0.1 in.).
The lever position can be adjusted for any driver hand size. To decrease the lever
distance from the handle grip, rotate the adjuster (B) CLOCKWISE. To increase
the lever distance from the handle grip, rotate the adjuster (B)
COUNTERCLOCKWISE. To check the fluid level, proceed as follows:
- remove screws (1), cover (2) and rubber pump diaphragm on the handlebar
- by keeping the master cylinder (3) in horizontal position, check the fluid level is
NOT BELOW 4 mm (0.16 in.) from the upper surface (D) of the pump body;
- if necessary, add fluid until the correct level is reached (see page A.9: TABLE
FOR LUBRICATION and SUPPLIES for the fluid type)
: NEVER use brake fluid.
Reassembly the removed parts using the reverse procedure.
Periodically check the connecting hose (see "Periodical maintenance card"): if
the hose (C) is bent or cracked, replace it.
