Preparation For Service


Gasoline is extremely flammable and highly explosive. Always stop the engine when refueling or servicing the fuel system. Do not smoke or allow open flame or sparks near the work site. Inadequate safety precautions could result in death or serious injury.

Good preparation is very important for efficient service work. A clean work area at the start of each job will allow you to perform the repair as easily and quickly as possible, and will reduce the incidence of misplaced tools and parts. A motorcycle that is excessively dirty should be cleaned before work starts. Cleaning will occasionally uncover sources of trouble. Tools, instruments and any parts needed for the job should be gathered before work is started. Interrupting a job to locate tools or parts is a distraction and causes needless delay. See A.1 APPENDIX A-TOOLS for equipment required for special service work.


• To avoid unnecessary disassembly, carefully read all relative service information before repair work is started.

• In figure legends, the number which follows the name of a part indicates the quantity necessary for one complete assembly
