This motorcycle is equipped with two oxidation
catalytic converters. Each catalytic converter
contains precious metals that serve as catalysts

convert hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon

or otherwise not running properly, stop
riding and turn off the engine. Have your
motorcycle serviced as soon as possible.
