Safety information EAU1028B

Be a Responsible Owner As the vehicles owner, you are respon- sible for the safe and proper operation of your motorcycle. Motorcycles are single-track vehicles. Their safe use and operation are de- pendent upon the use of proper riding techniques as well as the expertise of the operator. Every operator should know the following requirements before riding this motorcycle. He or she should: Obtain thorough instructions from

a competent source on all aspects of motorcycle operation.

Observe the warnings and mainte- nance requirements in this Own- ers Manual.

Obtain qualified training in safe and proper riding techniques.

Obtain professional technical ser- vice as indicated in this Owners Manual and/or when made neces- sary by mechanical conditions.

Never operate a motorcycle with- out proper training or instruction.

Take a training course. Beginners should receive training from a cer- tified instructor. Contact an autho- rized motorcycle dealer to find out about the training courses nearest you.

Safe Riding Perform the pre-operation checks each time you use the vehicle to make sure it is in safe operating condition. Failure to inspect or maintain the vehicle properly increases the possibility of an accident or equipment damage. See page 6-1 for a list of pre-operation checks. This motorcycle is designed to car-

ry the operator and a passenger. The failure of motorists to detect

and recognize motorcycles in traf- fic is the predominating cause of automobile/motorcycle accidents. Many accidents have been caused by an automobile driver who did not see the motorcycle. Making yourself conspicuous appears to be very effective in reducing the chance of this type of accident. Therefore: Wear a brightly colored jacket.

Use extra caution when you are approaching and passing through intersections, since in- tersections are the most likely places for motorcycle accidents to occur.

Ride where other motorists can see you. Avoid riding in another motorists blind spot.

Never maintain a motorcycle without proper knowledge. Con- tact an authorized motorcycle dealer to inform you on basic motorcycle maintenance. Cer- tain maintenance can only be carried out by certified staff.

Many accidents involve inexperi- enced operators. In fact, many op- erators who have been involved in accidents do not even have a cur- rent motorcycle license. Make sure that you are qualified

and that you only lend your mo- torcycle to other qualified opera- tors.

Know your skills and limits. Staying within your limits may help you to avoid an accident.

We recommend that you prac-

tice riding your motorcycle where there is no traffic until you have become thoroughly famil- iar with the motorcycle and all of its controls.

Many accidents have been caused by error of the motorcycle opera- tor. A typical error made by the op- erator is veering wide on a turn due to excessive speed or under- cornering (insufficient lean angle for the speed). Always obey the speed limit and

never travel faster than warrant- ed by road and traffic conditions.

Always signal before turning or changing lanes. Make sure that other motorists can see you.

The posture of the operator and passenger is important for proper control. The operator should keep both

hands on the handlebar and both feet on the operator foot- rests during operation to main- tain control of the motorcycle.

The passenger should always hold onto the operator, the seat strap or grab bar, if equipped,

with both hands and keep both feet on the passenger footrests. Never carry a passenger unless he or she can firmly place both feet on the passenger footrests.

Never ride under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

This motorcycle is designed for on-road use only. It is not suitable for off-road use.

Protective Apparel The majority of fatalities from motorcy- cle accidents are the result of head in- juries. The use of a safety helmet is the single most critical factor in the preven- tion or reduction of head injuries. Always wear an approved helmet. Wear a face shield or goggles.

Wind in your unprotected eyes could contribute to an impairment of vision that could delay seeing a hazard.

The use of a jacket, heavy boots, trousers, gloves, etc., is effective in preventing or reducing abrasions or lacerations.

Never wear loose-fitting clothes, otherwise they could catch on the

control levers, footrests, or wheels and cause injury or an accident.

Always wear protective clothing that covers your legs, ankles, and feet. The engine or exhaust sys- tem become very hot during or af- ter operation and can cause burns.

A passenger should also observe the above precautions.

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-

MENT. Do not run engine indoors. Even if

you try to ventilate engine exhaust with fans or open windows and doors, carbon monoxide can rap- idly reach dangerous levels.

Do not run engine in poorly venti- lated or partially enclosed areas such as barns, garages, or car- ports.

Do not run engine outdoors where engine exhaust can be drawn into a building through openings such as windows and doors.

Loading Adding accessories or cargo to your motorcycle can adversely affect stabili- ty and handling if the weight distribution of the motorcycle is changed. To avoid the possibility of an accident, use ex- treme caution when adding cargo or accessories to your motorcycle. Use extra care when riding a motorcycle that has added cargo or accessories. Here, along with the information about accessories below, are some general guidelines to follow if loading cargo to your motorcycle:

The total weight of the operator, pas- senger, accessories and cargo must not exceed the maximum load limit. Operation of an overloaded vehicle could cause an accident.

When loading within this weight limit, keep the following in mind: Cargo and accessory weight

should be kept as low and close to the motorcycle as possible. Se- curely pack your heaviest items as close to the center of the vehicle as possible and make sure to distrib- ute the weight as evenly as possi- ble on both sides of the motorcycle to minimize imbalance or instabili- ty.

Shifting weights can create a sud- den imbalance. Make sure that ac- cessories and cargo are securely attached to the motorcycle before riding. Check accessory mounts and cargo restraints frequently. Properly adjust the suspension

for your load (suspension-ad-

justable models only), and check the condition and pres- sure of your tires.

Never attach any large or heavy items to the handlebar, front fork, or front fender. These items, including such cargo as sleeping bags, duffel bags, or tents, can create unstable han- dling or a slow steering re- sponse.

This vehicle is not designed to pull a trailer or to be attached to a sidecar.

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-

dorse nor recommend the use of ac- cessories not sold by Yamaha or modifications not specifically recom- mended by Yamaha, even if sold and installed by a Yamaha dealer.

Aftermarket Parts, Accessories, and Modifications While you may find aftermarket prod- ucts similar in design and quality to genuine Yamaha accessories, recog- nize that some aftermarket accessories or modifications are not suitable be- cause of potential safety hazards to you or others. Installing aftermarket prod- ucts or having other modifications per- formed to your vehicle that change any of the vehicles design or operation characteristics can put you and others at greater risk of serious injury or death. You are responsible for injuries related to changes in the vehicle. Keep the following guidelines in mind, as well as those provided under Load- ing when mounting accessories. Never install accessories or carry

cargo that would impair the perfor- mance of your motorcycle. Care- fully inspect the accessory before

using it to make sure that it does not in any way reduce ground clearance or cornering clearance, limit suspension travel, steering travel or control operation, or ob- scure lights or reflectors. Accessories fitted to the handle-

bar or the front fork area can create instability due to improper weight distribution or aerody- namic changes. If accessories are added to the handlebar or front fork area, they must be as lightweight as possible and should be kept to a minimum.

Bulky or large accessories may seriously affect the stability of the motorcycle due to aerody- namic effects. Wind may at- tempt to lift the motorcycle, or the motorcycle may become un- stable in cross winds. These ac- cessories may also cause instability when passing or being passed by large vehicles.

Certain accessories can dis- place the operator from his or her normal riding position. This improper position limits the free-

dom of movement of the opera- tor and may limit control ability, therefore, such accessories are not recommended.

Use caution when adding electri- cal accessories. If electrical acces- sories exceed the capacity of the motorcycles electrical system, an electric failure could result, which could cause a dangerous loss of lights or engine power.

Aftermarket Tires and Rims The tires and rims that came with your motorcycle were designed to match the performance capabilities and to provide the best combination of handling, brak- ing, and comfort. Other tires, rims, siz- es, and combinations may not be appropriate. Refer to page 8-19 for tire specifications and more information on replacing your tires.

Transporting the Motorcycle Be sure to observe following instruc- tions before transporting the motorcy- cle in another vehicle. Remove all loose items from the

motorcycle.

Check that the fuel cock (if equipped) is in the OFF position and that there are no fuel leaks.

Point the front wheel straight ahead on the trailer or in the truck bed, and choke it in a rail to pre- vent movement.

Shift the transmission in gear (for models with a manual transmis- sion).

Secure the motorcycle with tie-downs or suitable straps that are attached to solid parts of the motorcycle, such as the frame or upper front fork triple clamp (and not, for example, to rubber-mount- ed handlebars or turn signals, or parts that could break). Choose the location for the straps carefully so the straps will not rub against painted surfaces during transport.

The suspension should be com- pressed somewhat by the tie-downs, if possible, so that the motorcycle will not bounce exces- sively during transport.

Special features EAU76422

D-mode (drive mode) D-mode is an electronically controlled engine performance system. This mod- el has three mode selections: STD, A, and B.

WARNING EWA18440

Do not change the drive mode while the vehicle is moving.

With the throttle grip closed, push this switch to change the drive mode in the following order: STD A B STD

TIP Make sure you understand each

drive mode before operating the

drive mode switch. The current drive mode is shown in

the drive mode display (page 5-8). The current drive mode is saved

when the vehicle is turned off.

Mode STD Mode STD is suitable for various rid- ing conditions. This mode allows the rider to enjoy smooth and sporty drivability from the low-speed range to the high-speed range.

Mode A Mode A offers a sportier engine re- sponse in the low- to mid-speed range compared to mode STD.

Mode B Mode B offers response that is some- what less sharp compared to mode STD for riding situations that require especially sensitive throttle operation.

EAU76433

Traction control system The traction control system (TCS) helps maintain traction when accelerat- ing on slippery surfaces, such as un- paved or wet roads. If sensors detect that the rear wheel is starting to slip (un- controlled spinning), the traction control system assists by regulating engine power as needed until traction is re- stored.

WARNING EWA15432

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.

Setting the traction control system

With the throttle closed, push this switch down to change from TCS 1 to TCS 2. Push up to change from 2 to 1. With the vehicle stopped, push this switch up for two seconds to turn the system off. Push down to turn the sys- tem on.

TIP The current TCS setting is shown

in the TCS display (page 5-8). Traction control can be turned on

or off only when the vehicle is stopped.

When the key is turned to ON, traction control is turned on and

set to 1 or 2 (whichever was last selected).

Turn the traction control system off to help free the rear wheel if the ve- hicle gets stuck in mud, sand, or other soft surfaces.

TCS OFF TCS OFF turns the traction control system off.

TCS 1 TCS 1 minimizes traction control as- sist.

TCS 2 TCS 2 maximizes traction control as- sist; wheel spin is most strongly con- trolled.

The indicator light flashes when traction control has engaged. You may notice slight changes in engine and ex- haust sounds when the system has en- gaged. When the traction control system has been set to OFF, the indicator light will come on.

NOTICE ECA16801

Use only the specified tires. (See page 8-19.) Using different sized tires will prevent the traction control system from controlling tire rotation accurately.

Resetting the traction control sys- tem The traction control system will auto- matically disable when: the front wheel or rear wheel

comes off the ground while riding. excessive rear wheel spin is de-

tected while riding. either wheel is rotated with the key

turned to ON (such as when per- forming maintenance).

If the traction control system is dis- abled, both the indicator light and the warning light will come on. Should this occur, try resetting the sys- tem as follows.

1. Stop the vehicle and turn the key to OFF.

2. Wait a few seconds and then turn the key back to ON.

3. The indicator light should turn off and the system be enabled.

TIP If the indicator light remains on af- ter resetting, the vehicle may still be rid- den; however, have a Yamaha dealer check the vehicle as soon as possible.

4. Have a Yamaha dealer check the

vehicle and turn off the warn- ing light.

EAU78130

Quick shift system The quick shift system (QS) allows for full-throttle, clutch lever-less, electroni- cally-assisted upshifts. When the shift switch detects motion in the shift pedal (page 5-12), engine power and drive torque are momentarily adjusted to al- low the upshift to occur.

TIP This system requires an accessory

part to be activated. Contact your Yahama dealer for details.

The quick shift system operates when traveling at least 20 km/h (12 mi/h) with an engine speed of 2300 r/min or higher, and only when ac- celerating.

It does not operate when the clutch lever is pulled.

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.

WARNING EWA16051

Always keep a sufficient distance from the vehicle ahead to match the riding speed even with ABS. The ABS performs best with

long braking distances. On certain surfaces, such as

rough or gravel roads, the brak- ing distance may be longer with the ABS than without.

The ABS is monitored by an ECU, which will revert the system to conven- tional braking if a malfunction occurs.

During this test, a clicking noise can be heard from the hy- draulic control unit, and if the brake lever or brake pedal is even slight- ly applied, a vibration can be felt at the lever and pedal, but these do not indicate a malfunction.

This ABS has a test mode which allows the owner to experience the pulsation at the brake lever or brake pedal when the ABS is oper- ating. However, special tools are required, so please consult your Yamaha dealer.

NOTICE ECA20100

Be careful not to damage the wheel sensor or wheel sensor rotor; other- wise, improper performance of the ABS will result.

Fuel Make sure there is sufficient gasoline in the tank.

WARNING EWA10882

Gasoline and gasoline vapors are extremely flammable. To avoid fires and explosions and to reduce the risk of injury when refueling, follow these instructions.

1. Before refueling, turn off the en- gine and be sure that no one is sit- ting on the vehicle. Never refuel while smoking, or while in the vi- cinity of sparks, open flames, or other sources of ignition such as the pilot lights of water heaters and clothes dryers.

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.

3. Wipe up any spilled fuel immedi- ately. NOTICE: Immediately wipe off spilled fuel with a clean, dry, soft cloth, since fuel may deteri- orate painted surfaces or plastic parts.[ECA10072]

4. Be sure to securely close the fuel tank cap.

WARNING EWA15152

Gasoline is poisonous and can cause injury or death. Handle gaso- line with care. Never siphon gaso- line by mouth. If you should swallow some gasoline or inhale a lot of gas- oline vapor, or get some gasoline in

NOTICE ECA11401

Use only unleaded gasoline. The use of leaded gasoline will cause severe damage to internal engine parts, such as the valves and piston rings, as well as to the exhaust system.

Your Yamaha engine has been de- signed to use premium unleaded gaso- line with a pump octane number [(R+M)/2] of 91 or higher, or a research octane number of 95 or higher. If knocking (or pinging) occurs, use a

gasoline of a different brand. Use of un- leaded fuel will extend spark plug life and reduce maintenance costs.

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.

Periodic maintenance and adjustment EAU17246

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.

WARNING EWA10322

Failure to properly maintain the ve- hicle or performing maintenance ac- tivities incorrectly may increase your risk of injury or death during service or while using the vehicle. If you are not familiar with vehicle ser- vice, have a Yamaha dealer perform service.

WARNING EWA15123

Turn off the engine when performing maintenance unless otherwise specified. A running engine has moving

parts that can catch on body parts or clothing and electrical parts that can cause shocks or fires.

Running the engine while ser- vicing can lead to eye injury, burns, fire, or carbon monoxide poisoning possibly leading to death. See page 2-2 for more in- formation about carbon monox- ide.

WARNING EWA15461

Brake discs, calipers, drums, and linings can become very hot during use. To avoid possible burns, let brake components cool before touching them.

EAU17303

Emission controls not only function to ensure cleaner air, but are also vital to proper engine operation and maximum performance. In the following periodic maintenance charts, the services relat- ed to emissions control are grouped separately. These services require specialized data, knowledge, and equipment. Maintenance, replacement, or repair of the emission control devic- es and systems may be performed by any repair establishment or individual that is certified (if applicable).

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.

Before installing a spark plug, the spark plug gap should be measured with a wire thickness gauge and, if necessary, adjusted to specification.

Clean the surface of the spark plug gasket and its mating surface, and then wipe off any grime from the spark plug threads.

TIP If a torque wrench is not available when

installing a spark plug, a good estimate of the correct torque is 1/41/2 turn past finger tight. However, the spark plug should be tightened to the speci- fied torque as soon as possible.

NOTICE ECA10841

Do not use any tools to remove or in- stall the spark plug cap, otherwise the ignition coil coupler may get damaged. The spark plug cap may be difficult to remove because the rubber seal on the end of the cap fits tightly. To remove the spark plug cap, simply twist it back and forth while pulling it out; to install it, twist it back and forth while pushing it in.

Tire information

This model is equipped with tubeless tires and tire air valves. Tires age, even if they have not been used or have only been used occasion- ally. Cracking of the tread and sidewall rubber, sometimes accompanied by carcass deformation, is an evidence of ageing. Old and aged tires shall be checked by tire specialists to ascertain their suitability for further use.

WARNING EWA10902

The front and rear tires should be of the same make and de-

sign, otherwise the handling characteristics of the motorcy- cle may be different, which could lead to an accident.

Always make sure that the valve caps are securely installed to prevent air pressure leakage.

Use only the tire valves and valve cores listed below to avoid tire deflation during a ride.

After extensive tests, only the tires list- ed below have been approved for this model by Yamaha.

WARNING EWA10601

This motorcycle is fitted with su- per-high-speed tires. Note the fol- lowing points in order to make the most efficient use of these tires. Use only the specified replace-

ment tires. Other tires may run the danger of bursting at super high speeds.

Brand-new tires can have a rela- tively poor grip on certain road surfaces until they have been broken in. Therefore, it is ad- visable before doing any high-speed riding to ride con- servatively for approximately 100 km (60 mi) after installing a new tire.

The tires must be warmed up before a high-speed run.

Always adjust the tire air pres- sure according to the operating conditions.

WARNING EWA16011

Improper maintenance can result in loss of braking ability. Observe these precautions: Insufficient brake fluid may al-

low air to enter the brake sys- tem, reducing braking performance.

Clean the filler cap before re- moving. Use only DOT 4 brake fluid from a sealed container.

Use only the specified brake flu- id; otherwise, the rubber seals

may deteriorate, causing leak- age.

Refill with the same type of brake fluid. Adding a brake fluid other than DOT 4 may result in a harmful chemical reaction.

Be careful that water or dust does not enter the brake fluid reservoir when refilling. Water will significantly lower the boil- ing point of the fluid and may re- sult in vapor lock, and dirt may clog the ABS hydraulic unit valves.

NOTICE ECA17641

Brake fluid may damage painted sur- faces or plastic parts. Always clean up spilled fluid immediately.

As the brake pads wear, it is normal for the brake fluid level to gradually go down. A low brake fluid level may indi- cate worn brake pads and/or brake sys- tem leakage; therefore, be sure to check the brake pads for wear and the brake system for leakage. If the brake fluid level goes down suddenly, have a Yamaha dealer check the cause before

further riding.

Supporting the motorcycle

Since this model is not equipped with a centerstand, use maintenance stands when removing the front or rear wheel or when performing other maintenance that requires the motorcycle to stand up right. Check that the motorcycle is in a stable and level position before starting any maintenance.

EAU25872

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.

WARNING EWA15142

When checking the fuel system, do not smoke, and make sure there are no open flames or sparks in the ar- ea, including pilot lights from water

heaters or furnaces. Gasoline or gasoline vapors can ignite or ex- plode, causing severe injury or property damage.

Matte color caution

NOTICE ECA15193

Some models are equipped with matte colored finished parts. Be sure to consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on what products to use be- fore cleaning the vehicle. Using a brush, harsh chemical products or cleaning compounds when cleaning these parts will scratch or damage their surface. Wax also should not be applied to any matte colored fin- ished parts.

EAU26015

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.

Before cleaning 1. Cover the muffler outlet with a

plastic bag after the engine has cooled down.

2. Make sure that all caps and covers as well as all electrical couplers and connectors, including the spark plug caps, are tightly in- stalled.

3. Remove extremely stubborn dirt, like oil burnt onto the crankcase, with a degreasing agent and a brush, but never apply such prod-

ucts onto seals, gaskets, sprock- ets, the drive chain and wheel axles. Always rinse the dirt and de- greaser off with water.

Cleaning

NOTICE ECA10773

Avoid using strong acidic wheel cleaners, especially on spoked wheels. If such products are used on hard-to-remove dirt, do not leave the cleaner on the af- fected area any longer than in- structed. Also, thoroughly rinse the area off with water, immedi- ately dry it, and then apply a cor- rosion protection spray.

Improper cleaning can damage plastic parts (such as cowlings, panels, windshields, headlight lenses, meter lenses, etc.) and the mufflers. Use only a soft, clean cloth or sponge with wa- ter to clean plastic. However, if the plastic parts cannot be thor- oughly cleaned with water, di- luted mild detergent with water may be used. Be sure to rinse

off any detergent residue using plenty of water, as it is harmful to plastic parts.

Do not use any harsh chemical products on plastic parts. Be sure to avoid using cloths or sponges which have been in contact with strong or abrasive cleaning products, solvent or thinner, fuel (gasoline), rust re- movers or inhibitors, brake flu- id, antifreeze or electrolyte.

Do not use high-pressure wash- ers or steam-jet cleaners since they cause water seepage and deterioration in the following ar- eas: seals (of wheel and swing- arm bearings, fork and brakes), electric components (couplers, connectors, instruments, switches and lights), breather hoses and vents.

For motorcycles equipped with a windshield: Do not use strong cleaners or hard sponges as they will cause dulling or scratching. Some cleaning com- pounds for plastic may leave scratches on the windshield.

Test the product on a small hid- den part of the windshield to make sure that it does not leave any marks. If the windshield is scratched, use a quality plastic polishing compound after washing.

After normal use Remove dirt with warm water, a mild detergent, and a soft, clean sponge, and then rinse thoroughly with clean water. Use a toothbrush or bottlebrush for hard-to-reach areas. Stubborn dirt and insects will come off more easily if the area is covered with a wet cloth for a few minutes before cleaning.

After riding in the rain, near the sea or on salt-sprayed roads Since sea salt or salt sprayed on roads during winter are extremely corrosive in combination with water, carry out the following steps after each ride in the rain, near the sea or on salt-sprayed roads.

TIP Salt sprayed on roads in the winter may

remain well into spring.

1. Clean the motorcycle with cold wa- ter and a mild detergent, after the engine has cooled down. NOTICE: Do not use warm water since it increases the corrosive action of the salt.[ECA10792]

2. Apply a corrosion protection spray on all metal, including chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces to prevent corrosion.

After cleaning 1. Dry the motorcycle with a chamois

or an absorbing cloth. 2. Immediately dry the drive chain

and lubricate it to prevent it from rusting.

3. Use a chrome polish to shine chrome, aluminum and stain- less-steel parts, including the ex- haust system. (Even the thermally induced discoloring of stain- less-steel exhaust systems can be removed through polishing.)

4. To prevent corrosion, it is recom- mended to apply a corrosion pro- tection spray on all metal,

including chrome- and nickel-plat- ed, surfaces.

5. Use spray oil as a universal clean- er to remove any remaining dirt.

6. Touch up minor paint damage caused by stones, etc.

7. Wax all painted surfaces. 8. Let the motorcycle dry completely

before storing or covering it.

WARNING EWA11132

Contaminants on the brakes or tires can cause loss of control. Make sure that there is no oil or

wax on the brakes or tires. 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.

NOTICE ECA10801

Apply spray oil and wax spar- ingly and make sure to wipe off

any excess. Never apply oil or wax to any

rubber and plastic parts, but treat them with a suitable care product.

Avoid using abrasive polishing compounds as they will wear away the paint.

TIP Consult a Yamaha dealer for ad-

vice on what products to use. Washing, rainy weather or humid

climates can cause the headlight lens to fog. Turning the headlight on for a short period of time will help remove the moisture from the lens.

EAU26183

Storage

Short-term Always store your motorcycle in a cool, dry place and, if necessary, protect it against dust with a porous cover. Be sure the engine and the exhaust sys- tem are cool before covering the motor- cycle.

NOTICE ECA10811

Storing the motorcycle in a poorly ventilated room or cover- ing it with a tarp, while it is still wet, will allow water and humid- ity to seep in and cause rust.

To prevent corrosion, avoid damp cellars, stables (because of the presence of ammonia) and areas where strong chemi- cals are stored.

Long-term Before storing your motorcycle for sev- eral months:

1. Follow all the instructions in the Care section of this chapter.

2. Fill up the fuel tank and add fuel stabilizer (if available) to prevent the fuel tank from rusting and the fuel from deteriorating.

3. Perform the following steps to pro- tect the cylinders, piston rings, etc. from corrosion. a. Remove the spark plug caps

and spark plugs. b. Pour a teaspoonful of engine oil

into each spark plug bore. c. Install the spark plug caps onto

the spark plugs, and then place the spark plugs on the cylinder head so that the electrodes are grounded. (This will limit spark- ing during the next step.)

d. Turn the engine over several times with the starter. (This will coat the cylinder walls with oil.) WARNING! To prevent dam- age or injury from sparking, make sure to ground the spark plug electrodes while turning the engine over.[EWA10952]

e. Remove the spark plug caps from the spark plugs, and then install the spark plugs and the

spark plug caps. 4. Lubricate all control cables and the

pivoting points of all levers and pedals as well as of the sidestand/ centerstand.

5. Check and, if necessary, correct the tire air pressure, and then lift the motorcycle so that both of its wheels are off the ground. Alterna- tively, turn the wheels a little every month in order to prevent the tires from becoming degraded in one spot.

6. Cover the muffler outlet with a plastic bag to prevent moisture from entering it.

7. Remove the battery and fully charge it. Store it in a cool, dry place and charge it once a month. Do not store the battery in an ex- cessively cold or warm place [less than 0 C (30 F) or more than 30 C (90 F)]. For more information on storing the battery, see page 8-32.

WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period? The customers responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services, non-warranty repairs, accident and collision damages, and oil, oil filters, air filters, spark plugs, and brake shoes.

What are some examples of abnormal strain, neglect, or abuse? These terms are general and overlap each other in areas. Specific examples include: Running the machine out of oil, sustained high rpm, full-throttle, operating the machine with a broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail, damage or failure due to improper or careless transportation and/or tie-down. If you have any specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your dealer for advice.

Does the warranty cover incidental costs such as towing or transportation due to a failure? No. The warranty is limited to repair of the machine itself.

May I perform any or all of the recommended maintenance shown in the Owners Manual instead of having the dealer do them? Yes, if you are a qualified mechanic and follow the procedures specified in the Owners and Service Manual. We do recommend, however, that items requiring special tools or equipment be done by a Yamaha motorcycle dealer.

Will the warranty be void or cancelled if I do not operate or maintain my new motorcycle exactly as specified in the Owners Manual? No. The warranty on a new motorcycle cannot be voided or cancelled. However, if a particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than as described in the Owners Manual, that failure may not be covered under warranty.

What responsibility does my dealer have under this warranty? Each Yamaha motorcycle dealer is expected to:

Completely set up every new machine before sale. Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your satisfaction at the time of sale, and upon your request at any later date. Each Yamaha motorcycle dealer is held responsible for his setup, service and warranty repair work.

Is the warranty transferable to second owners? Yes. The remainder of the existing warranty can be transferred upon request. The unit has to be inspected and re-registered by an authorized Yamaha motorcycle dealer for the policy to remain effective.

CUSTOMER SERVICE

If your machine requires warranty service, you must take it to any authorized Yamaha motorcycle dealer within the continental United States. Be sure to bring your warranty registration card or other valid proof of the original date of purchase. If a question or problem arises regarding the warranty, first contact the owner of the dealership. Since all warranty matters are handled at the dealer level, this person is in the best position to help you. IF you are still not satisfied and require additional assistance, please write to:

If you should move after you have purchased your new motorcycle, please advise us of your new address by sending a postcard listing your motorcycle model name, V.I.N. (frame number), dealer number (or dealers name) as it is shown on your warranty card, your name and new mailing address. Mail to:
