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 aerodynamic effects. Wind may attempt to lift the motorcycle, or the motorcycle may become unstable in cross winds. Certain accessories can displace the operator from his or her normal riding position. This improper position limits the freedom of movement of the operator and may limit control ability, therefore, such accessories are not recommended. Use caution when adding electrical accessories. If electrical accessories exceed the capacity of the motorcycles electrical system an electric failure could result, which could cause a dangerous loss of engine power.
Gasoline and exhaust gas G GASOLINE IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Be sure to always use a fresh mixture of oil and gasoline. Always turn the engine off when refueling. Take care not to spill any gasoline on the engine or exhaust pipe/muffler when refueling. Never refuel while smoking or in the vicinity of an open flame. G Never start the engine or let it run for any length of time in a closed area. The exhaust fumes are poisonous and may cause loss of consciousness and death within a short time. Always operate your motorcycle in an area that has adequate ventilation. G Always turn the engine off before leaving the motorcycle unattended. When parking the motorcycle, note the following: The engine and exhaust pipe/muffler may be hot, therefore, park the motorcycle in a place where pedestrians or children are not likely to touch these hot areas. Do not park the motorcycle on a slope or soft ground, otherwise it may fall over. Do not park the motorcycle near a flammable source (e.g., a kerosene heater, or near an open flame), otherwise it could catch fire. When transporting the motorcycle in another vehicle, make sure that it is kept upright and that the fuel cock is turned to OFF. If the motorcycle should lean over, gasoline may leak out of the carburetor or fuel tank. If you should swallow any gasoline, inhale a lot of gasoline vapor, or allow gasoline to get into your eyes, see your doctor immediately. If any gasoline spills on your skin or clothing, immediately wash the affected area with soap and water and change your clothes. Page 4 Thursday, April 13, 2006 3:06 PM

Shifting gears lets you control the amount of engine power available for starting off, accelerating, climbing hills, etc. The gear positions are shown in the illustration. NOTE: To shift the transmission into the neutral position, press the shift pedal down repeatedly until it reaches the end of its travel, and then slightly raise it.
Even with the transmission in the neutral position, do not coast for long periods of time with the engine off, and do not tow the motorcycle for long distances. The transmission is properly lubricated only when the engine is running. Inadequate lubrication may damage the transmission. Always use the clutch while changing gears to avoid damaging the engine, transmission, and drive train, which are not designed to withstand the shock of forced shifting.


WARNING If you are not familiar with maintenance work, have a Yamaha dealer do it for you. 7. Drain the break-in oil-fuel mixture from the fuel tank and refill with the specified mix. (See page 3-3.) 8. Start the engine and check the operation of the motorcycle throughout its entire operating range. Stop the engine and check the spark
When any of the following parts have been replaced, they must be broken in. Cylinder or crankshaft: About one hour of break-in operation is necessary. Piston, rings or transmission gears: These parts require about 30 minutes of break-in operation at half-throttle or less. Observe the condition of the engine carefully during operation.
If any engine trouble should occur during the engine break-in period, immediately have a Yamaha dealer check the vehicle.


When parking, stop the engine, and then turn the fuel cock lever to OFF.


Since the engine and exhaust system can become very hot, park in a place where pedestrians or children are not likely to touch them. Do not park on a slope or on soft ground, otherwise the vehicle may overturn.


Safety is an obligation of the owner. Periodic inspection, adjustment and lubrication will keep your vehicle in the safest and most efficient condition possible. The most important points of inspection, adjustment, and lubrication are explained on the following pages. The intervals given in the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart should be simply considered as a general guide under normal riding conditions. However, DEPENDING ON THE WEATHER, TERRAIN, GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION, AND INDIVIDUAL USE, THE MAINTENANCE INTERVALS MAY NEED TO BE SHORTENED.
WARNING If you are not familiar with maintenance work, have a Yamaha dealer do it for you.


Periodic maintenance and lubrication chart
The following chart is intended as a general guide to maintenance and lubrication. Bear in mind that such factors as weather, terrain, geographical location, and individual usage will alter the required maintenance and lubrication intervals. If you are in doubt as to what intervals to follow in maintaining and lubricating your motorcycle, consult your Yamaha dealer. NOTE: G From the seventh race, repeat the maintenance intervals starting from Every race. G Items marked with an asterisk should be performed by a Yamaha dealer as they require special tools, data and technical skills.

Checking the spark plug
The spark plug is an important engine component, which is easy to check. Since heat and deposits will cause any spark plug to slowly erode, the spark plug should be removed and checked in accordance with the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart. In addition, the condition of the spark plug can reveal the condition of the engine. To remove the spark plug 1. Remove the spark plug cap. 6
2. Check the spark plug for electrode erosion and excessive carbon or other deposits, and replace it if necessary.


Tire information This motorcycle is equipped with spoke wheels and tube tires.


sively worn tires decreases riding stability and can lead to loss of control. The replacement of all wheeland brake-related parts, including the tires, should be left to a Yamaha dealer, who has the necessary professional knowledge and experience. It is not recommended to patch a punctured tube. If unavoidable, however, patch the tube very carefully and replace it as soon as possible with a highquality product.
The front and rear tires should be of the same make and design, otherwise the handling characteristics of the vehicle cannot be guaranteed. After extensive tests, only the tires listed below have been approved for this model by Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.
Have a Yamaha dealer replace excessively worn tires. Operating the motorcycle with exces6-16 Page 17 Thursday, April 13, 2006 3:06 PM

Spoke wheels

To maximize the performance, durability, and safe operation of your motorcycle, note the following points regarding the specified wheels. G The wheel rims should be checked for cracks, bends or warpage, and the spokes for looseness or damage before each ride. If any damage is found, have a Yamaha dealer replace the wheel. Do not attempt even the smallest repair to the wheel. A deformed or cracked wheel must be replaced. G The wheel should be balanced whenever either the tire or wheel has been changed or replaced. An unbalanced wheel can result in poor performance, adverse handling characteristics, and a shortened tire life. G Ride at moderate speeds after changing a tire since the tire surface must first be broken in for it to develop its optimal characteristics.

Recommended brake fluid: DOT 4
Be careful that water does not enter the brake fluid reservoir when refilling. Water will significantly lower the boiling point of the fluid and may result in vapor lock. Brake fluid may deteriorate painted surfaces 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. However, if the brake fluid level goes down suddenly, have a Yamaha dealer check the cause.
Refill with the same type of brake fluid. Mixing fluids may result in a harmful chemical reaction and lead to poor braking performance.
Insufficient brake fluid may allow air to enter the brake system, possibly causing it to become ineffective. Page 20 Thursday, April 13, 2006 3:06 PM

EAU22730 EAU22760

Changing the brake fluid
Have a Yamaha dealer change the brake fluid at the intervals specified in the NOTE after the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart. In addition, have the oil seals of the master cylinders and calipers as well as the brake hoses replaced at the intervals listed below or whenever they are damaged or leaking. G Oil seals: Replace every two years. G Brake hoses: Replace every four years. 6

Drive chain slack

The drive chain slack should be checked before each ride and adjusted if necessary.


To check the drive chain slack 1. Install the removable sidestand and place the motorcycle on it. NOTE: When checking and adjusting the drive chain slack, there should be no weight on the motorcycle. 2. Shift the transmission into the neutral position. 3. Move the rear wheel by pushing the motorcycle to locate the tightest portion of the drive chain, and then measure the drive chain slack as shown.
Drive chain slack: 35.045.0 mm (1.381.77 in)

1. Drive chain slack

4. If the drive chain slack is incorrect, adjust it as follows.


To adjust the drive chain slack 1. Loosen the axle nut and the locknut on each side of the swingarm. 2. To tighten the drive chain, turn the adjusting bolt on each side of the swingarm in direction (a). To loosen the drive chain, turn the adjusting bolt on each side of the swingarm in direction (b), and then push the rear wheel forward. Page 21 Thursday, April 13, 2006 3:06 PM
NOTE: Using the alignment marks on each chain puller, make sure that both chain pullers are in the same position for proper wheel alignment. 3. Tighten both locknuts and the axle nut to the specified torques.


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 affected area any longer than instructed. Also, thoroughly rinse the area off with water, immediately dry it, and then apply a corrosion protection spray. Improper cleaning can damage windshields, cowlings, panels and other plastic parts. Use only a soft, clean cloth or sponge with mild detergent and water to clean plastic. 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 removers or inhibitors, brake fluid, antifreeze or electrolyte. Do not use high-pressure washers or steam-jet cleaners since they cause water seepage and deterioration in the following areas: seals (of wheel and swingarm 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 compounds for plastic may leave scratches on the windshield. Test the product on a small hidden 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 or near the sea Since sea salt is extremely corrosive, carry out the following steps after each ride in the rain or near the sea. 1. Clean the motorcycle with cold water and a mild detergent, after the engine has cooled down.


CAUTION: Do not use warm water since it increases the corrosive action of the salt. 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 stainlesssteel parts, including the exhaust system. (Even the thermally induced discoloring of stainlesssteel exhaust systems can be removed through polishing.) 4. To prevent corrosion, it is recommended to apply a corrosion protection spray on all metal, including chrome- and nickel-plated, surfaces. 5. Use spray oil as a universal cleaner 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.


If necessary, clean the brake discs and brake linings with a regular brake disc cleaner or acetone, and wash the tires with warm water and a mild detergent. Before riding at higher speeds, test the motorcycles braking performance and cornering behavior.


Apply spray oil and wax sparingly 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.
NOTE: Consult a Yamaha dealer for advice on what products to use.
Make sure that there is no oil or wax on the brakes or tires.


Short-term Always store your motorcycle in a cool, dry place and, if necessary, protect it against dust with a porous cover.


Storing the motorcycle in a poorly ventilated room or covering it with a tarp, while it is still wet, will allow water and humidity to seep in and cause rust. To prevent corrosion, avoid damp cellars, stables (because of the presence of ammonia) and areas where strong chemicals are stored.
Long-term Before storing your motorcycle for several months: 1. Follow all the instructions in the Care section of this chapter. 2. For motorcycles equipped with a fuel cock that has an OFF position: Turn the fuel cock lever to OFF.
3. Drain the fuel tank and fuel lines, and the carburetor float chamber by loosening the drain bolt; this will prevent fuel deposits from building up. 4. Perform the following steps to protect the cylinder, piston rings, etc. from corrosion. a. Remove the spark plug cap and spark plug. b. Pour a teaspoonful of engine oil into the spark plug bore. c. Install the spark plug cap onto the spark plug, and then place the spark plug on the cylinder head so that the electrodes are grounded. (This will limit sparking during the next step.) d. Turn the engine over several times with the starter. (This will coat the cylinder wall with oil.) e. Remove the spark plug cap from the spark plug, and then install the spark plug and the spark plug cap.


WARNING To prevent damage or injury from sparking, make sure to ground the spark plug electrodes while turning the engine over. 5. Lubricate all control cables and the pivoting points of all levers and pedals. 6. Check and, if necessary, correct the tire air pressure, and then lift the motorcycle so that both of its wheels are off the ground. Alternatively, turn the wheels a little every month in order to prevent the tires from becoming degraded in one spot. 7. Cover the muffler outlet with a plastic bag to prevent moisture from entering it. NOTE: Make any necessary repairs before storing the motorcycle.
