(MAINTENANCE).

 

 

WARNING

Do not use gasoline or flammable solvents to wash the air cleaner, in order to avoid fire or explosion.

CAUTION

Reduce the service intervals by half when the vehicle is used in rainy or dusty conditions, on rough roads or for racing.

Inspect the air cleaner for clogging every 6,250 mi (1,000 km) or 12 months of use. Replace the air cleaner with a new one every 12,500 mi (20,000 km).

The air cleaner must be inspected more frequently, cleaned if necessary, and replaced more frequently if the vehicle is used on dusty or wet roads.

More frequent cleaning of the air cleaner is suggested, especially if your bike is used under very dusty conditions.

CAUTION

The air cleaner must not be used for more than 12,500 mi (20,000 km) regardless of how many times it has been cleaned in the interval. Under very dusty or dirty conditions, it is advisable to replace the air cleaner more often.

Before cleaning, it is necessary to remove the air cleaner from the vehicle.

CAUTION

Plug the opening with a clean cloth to prevent any foreign matter from entering the intake tubes.

When reassembling, before putting back the filter case cover (3), make sure that you have not left the cloth or other objects inside the case. Make sure that the air cleaner is positioned correctly, in such a way as to prevent non-filteredair from entering. Premature wear of the piston rings, pistons and cylinders is caused by an improperly installed air cleaner.

CLEANING

CAUTION

Take great care not to deform the perforated metal outside screen. It is very fragile and can be easily damaged. Never use a screwdriver or other sharp hard tool to remove the air cleaner itself.

WARNING

During this operation, always wear goggles which provide your eyes with 360° protection.

Be very careful using compressed air jets, they can cause serious personal injury if directed towards your body.

uGrasp the air cleaner (6) vertically and strike it repeatedly on a clean hard horizontal surface.

uIf available, clean the air cleaner (6) with a compressed air jet, directing it from the inside of the filter towards the outside.

CHECKING THE ENGINE OIL LEVEL AND TOPPING UP

Carefully read page 48 (LUBRICANTS), page 79 (MAINTENANCE) and page 141 (LUBRICANT CHART).

WARNING

It is critical to the safe operation of your vehicle that the proper lubricants, maintained at the proper levels, are used. Failure to observe this warning can lead to engine seizure which can result in accidents, serious injury or death.

NOTE Reduce the service intervals by half when the vehicle is used in rainy or dusty conditions, on rough roads or for racing.

Periodically check the engine oil level, and change oil after the first 625 mi (1,000 km) and every 6,250 mi (10,000 km) thereafter, see page 65 (CHANGING ENGINE OIL AND THE ENGINE OIL FILTER).

CAUTION

If the vehicle is used for racing, change the engine oil every 3,125 mi (5,000 km). Change oil more frequently if the vehicle is used in dusty conditions.

CHECKING

NOTE Place the vehicle on firm and flat ground.

CAUTION

The engine oil level must be checked when the engine is warm.

If the check is carried out when the engine is cold, the oil level may temporarily lower below the “MIN” mark.

This is not a problem, provided that the engine oil pressure icon“ ” (A) does not come on, see page 32 (INSTRUMENT AND INDICATOR TABLE).

WARNING

Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, which is extremely poisonous if inhaled. Do not start the engine in closed or poorly-ventilatedrooms. Failure to observe this warning may cause loss of consciousness or even lead to death by asphyxia.

uCheck the oil when the engine is warm, having been ridden for at least 10 mi (15 km).

NOTE If the engine is cold, warm it up for riding, preferably on a hilly road, for approximately 10 mi (15 km) before checking the oil.

u Stop the engine before checking the oil.

WARNING

Should your vehicle overturn, it will leak gasoline, which is extremely flammable. Flames or sparks may cause a fire, which could destroy not only the vehicle, but also the building in which it is located, and cause serious injuries or even death.

uKeep the vehicle vertical, with the two wheels resting on the ground.

NOTE If you attempt to check the oil with the vehicle in any position other than vertical, the measurement will be inaccurate.

NOTE If the engine oil tank is dirty, wipe it with a clean cloth so that the “MIN” and “MAX” marks are visible.

uLook through the appropriate slots (1) in the left fairing. Check the oil level in the inspection glass (2).

MAX = maximum level

MIN = minimum level

The difference between “MAX” and “MIN” is about 0.53 US qt (500 cm3).

uThe level is correct if the oil reaches approx. the “MAX” mark.

WARNING

Never exceed the “MAX” mark, nor leave the oil below the “MIN” mark, in order to avoid serious damage to the engine.

If necessary, top up the engine oil tank:

CAUTION

When warmed up, the engine contains hot oil and the engine oil tank (4) is warm; therefore, while carrying out the operations described here below, be particularly careful, in order to avoid burns.

CAUTION

Use thick gloves to prevent burns.

uRemove the left fairing, see page 109 (REMOVING THE SIDE FAIRINGS).

CAUTION

Before unscrewing and removing the filler cap (3), clean it and the area of the tank around it with a clean cloth. Prevent any foreign matter from falling into the oil tank, since this could cause serious engine damage.

Do not use any flammable solvents such as alcohol or gasoline when wiping the oil tank. The oil tank is hot enough to cause ignition of flammable solvents.

Use only a natural fiber cloth, e.g. cotton. Man made fabrics such as polyester, etc. could ignite.

u Unscrew and remove the filler cap (3).

CAUTION

If you use a container or funnel for topping up, make sure that it is perfectly clean. Any foreign matter getting into the oil tank may lead to severe damage.

WARNING

Do not add any additives or other substances to the engine oil.

If you use a funnel or other tool, make sure they are perfectly clean.

CAUTION

When topping up, never exceed the “MAX” level.

uTop up the engine oil tank (4) through the filler neck (5), with high-qualityengine oil, see page 141 (LUBRICANT CHART).

uReplace and tighten the filler cap (3).

WARNING

Tighten the filler cap (3) snugly to avoid leaks.

uReplace the left fairing, see page 109 [REMOVING THE SIDE FAIRINGS].

WARNING

Never ride your vehicle with low engine oil, or with contaminated oil, or with unapproved oil. Any of these will greatly accelerate wear of your engine, and cause irreparable damage.
