Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning All engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a deadly gas... Breathing car- bon monoxide can cause headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, confu- sion, 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 poison- ing, leave the area immediately, get fresh air, and SEEK MEDICAL TREAT-

Genuine Yamaha Accessories Choosing accessories for your vehicle is an important decision... Genuine Yamaha accessories, which are avail- able only from a Yamaha dealer, have been designed, tested, and approved by Yamaha for use on your vehicle... Many companies with no connection to Yamaha manufacture parts and acces- sories or offer other modifications for Yamaha vehicles... Yamaha is not in a position to test the products that these aftermarket companies produce... Therefore, Yamaha can neither en-

ABS The Yamaha ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) features a dual electronic con- trol system, which acts on the front and rear brakes independently... Operate the brakes with ABS as you would conventional brakes... If the ABS is activated, a pulsating sensation may be felt at the brake lever or brake pedal... In this situation, continue to apply the brakes and let the ABS work; do not pump the brakes as this will reduce braking effectiveness...

Page 38

The traction control system is not a substitute for riding appropriately for the conditions... Traction control cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when entering turns, when accelerating hard at a sharp lean angle, or while braking, and cannot prevent front wheel slip- ping... As with any motorcycle, ap- proach surfaces that may be slippery with caution and avoid es- pecially slippery surfaces...

Page 39

Be sure to stop the vehicle before making any setting changes to the traction control system... Changing settings while riding can distract the operator and increase the risk of an accident...

Page 40

To open the fuel tank cap Open the fuel tank cap lock cover, in- sert the key into the lock, and then turn it 1/4 turn clockwise... The lock will be re- leased and the fuel tank cap can be opened...

Page 41

2... Do not overfill the fuel tank... When refueling, be sure to insert the pump nozzle into the fuel tank filler hole... Stop filling when the fuel reaches the bottom of the filler tube... Because fuel expands when it heats up, heat from the engine or the sun can cause fuel to spill out of the fuel tank...

Page 42

Gasohol There are two types of gasohol: gaso- hol containing ethanol and that contain- ing methanol... Gasohol containing ethanol can be used if the ethanol con- tent does not exceed 10% (E10)... Gas- ohol containing methanol is not recommended by Yamaha because it can cause damage to the fuel system or vehicle performance problems...

gine in case of a turnover... In this case, the engine trouble warning light will come on, but this is not a malfunction... Turn the key to OFF and then to ON to turn off the warning light... Failing to do so will prevent the engine from starting even though the engine will crank when pushing the start switch...

Page 60

3... Start the engine by sliding the switch toward ... If the engine fails to start, release the start/engine stop switch, wait a few seconds, and then try again... Each starting attempt should be as short as possible to preserve the battery... Do not crank the engine more than 10 seconds on any one attempt...

Page 61

Make sure that the motorcycle and the engine have sufficiently slowed before shifting to a low- er gear... Engaging a lower gear when the vehicle or engine speed is too high could make the rear wheel lose traction or the engine to over-rev... This could cause loss of control, an accident and injury... It could also cause engine or drive train dam- age...

Page 62

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 follow- ing 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...

Page 63

Since the engine and exhaust system can become very hot, park in a place where pedestri- ans or children are not likely to touch them and be burned...

Page 64

Periodic inspection, adjustment, and lu- brication will keep your vehicle in the safest and most efficient condition pos- sible... Safety is an obligation of the vehi- cle owner/operator... The most important points of vehicle inspection, adjust- ment, and lubrication are explained 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 deposits will cause any spark plug to slowly erode, they should be removed and checked in accordance with the periodic mainte- nance and lubrication chart... In addition, the condition of the spark plugs can re- veal the condition of the engine... The porcelain insulator around the cen- ter 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 en- gine should have the same color... If any spark plug shows a distinctly different color, the engine could be operating im- properly... Do not attempt to diagnose such problems yourself... Instead, have a Yamaha dealer check the vehicle... If a spark plug shows signs of electrode erosion and excessive carbon or other deposits, it should be replaced...

Page 74

Troubleshooting Although Yamaha motorcycles receive a thorough inspection before shipment from the factory, trouble may occur dur- ing 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 inferi- or, have a shorter service life and can lead to expensive repair bills...

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 motor- cycle... Frequent and proper care does not only comply with the terms of the warranty, but it will also keep your mo- torcycle 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 thor- oughly with water... For additional clean- ing, use Yamaha Windshield Cleaner or another high-quality windshield cleaner... Some cleaning compounds for plastics may leave scratches on the windshield... Before using such clean- ers, test an area of the windshield which does not affect your visibility and which cannot be easily recognized...

Page 106

If necessary, clean the brake discs and brake linings with a regular brake disc cleaner or ac- etone, and wash the tires with warm water and a mild deter- gent... Before riding at higher speeds, test the motorcycles braking performance and cor- nering behavior...
