All engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a deadly gas... Breathing carbon monoxide can cause head- aches, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, confusion, and eventually death... Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odor- less, tasteless gas which may be pres- ent even if you do not see or smell any engine exhaust... Deadly levels of car- bon monoxide can collect rapidly and you can quickly be overcome and un- able to save yourself... Also, deadly lev- els of carbon monoxide can linger for hours or days in enclosed or poorly ventilated areas... If you experience any symptoms of carbon monoxide poi- soning, leave the area immediately, get fresh air, and SEEK MEDICAL TREAT- MENT... Do not run engine indoors... Even if

Engine break-in There is never a more important period in the life of your engine than the period between 0 and 1600 km (1000 mi)... For this reason, you should read the fol- lowing material carefully... Since the engine is brand new, do not put an excessive load on it for the first 1600 km (1000 mi)... The various parts in the engine wear and polish themselves to the correct operating clearances... During this period, prolonged full-throt- tle operation or any condition that might result in engine overheating must be avoided...

Parking When parking, stop the engine, and then remove the key from the main switch...

Page 64

Periodic inspection, adjustment, and lubrication will keep your vehicle in the safest and most efficient condition possible... Safety is an obligation of the vehicle owner/operator... The most im- portant points of vehicle inspection, adjustment, and lubrication are ex- plained on the following pages... The intervals given in the periodic maintenance charts should be simply considered as a general guide under normal riding conditions... However, de- pending on the weather, terrain, geo- graphical location, and individual use, the maintenance intervals may need to be shortened...

Page 73

Checking the spark plugs The spark plugs are important engine components, which should be checked periodically, preferably by a Yamaha dealer... Since heat and depos- its will cause any spark plug to slowly erode, they should be removed and checked in accordance with the peri- odic maintenance and lubrication chart... In addition, the condition of the spark plugs can reveal the condition of the engine... The porcelain insulator around the center electrode of each spark plug should be a medium-to-light tan (the ideal color when the vehicle is ridden normally), and all spark plugs installed in the engine should have the same color... If any spark plug shows a dis- tinctly different color, the engine could be operating improperly... Do not at- tempt to diagnose such problems yourself... Instead, have a Yamaha deal- er check the vehicle... If a spark plug shows signs of elec- trode erosion and excessive carbon or other deposits, it should be replaced...

Page 74

Engine oil and oil filter car- tridge The engine oil level should be checked before each ride... In addition, the oil must be changed and the oil filter car- tridge replaced at the intervals speci- fied in the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart...

Troubleshooting Although Yamaha motorcycles receive a thorough inspection before shipment from the factory, trouble may occur during operation... Any problem in the fuel, compression, or ignition systems, for example, can cause poor starting and loss of power... The following troubleshooting charts represent quick and easy procedures for checking these vital systems your- self... However, should your motorcycle require any repair, take it to a Yamaha dealer, whose skilled technicians have the necessary tools, experience, and know-how to service the motorcycle properly... Use only genuine Yamaha replace- ment parts... Imitation parts may look like Yamaha parts, but they are often inferior, have a shorter service life and can lead to expensive repair bills...

Page 102

3... Ignition Wipe off with a dry cloth and correct the spark plug gaps, or replace the spark plugs...

Page 103

If coolant is not available, tap water can be temporarily used instead, provided that it is changed to the recommended cool- ant as soon as possible...

Page 104

Care While the open design of a motorcycle reveals the attractiveness of the tech- nology, it also makes it more vulnera- ble... Rust and corrosion can develop even if high-quality components are used... A rusty exhaust pipe may go un- noticed on a car, however, it detracts from the overall appearance of a mo- torcycle... Frequent and proper care does not only comply with the terms of the warranty, but it will also keep your motorcycle looking good, extend its life and optimize its performance...

Page 105

Cleaning the windshield Avoid using any alkaline or strong acid cleaner, gasoline, brake fluid, or any other solvent... Clean the windshield with a cloth or sponge dampened with a mild detergent, and then wash it off thoroughly with water... For additional cleaning, use Yamaha Windshield Cleaner or another high-quality wind- shield cleaner... Some cleaning com- pounds for plastics may leave scratches on the windshield... Before using such cleaners, test an area of the
