The transmission is equipped with a
positive neutral finder. W hen the mo-
torcycle is standing still, the tra n s mis-

from 1st gear. To use the positive
neutral finder, shift down to 1st gear,
then lift u p on the shift pedal while
standing still. The transmission will
shift only into neutral.

shifting g e ars) so that the engine will
help slow down the motorcycle.
Shift down one gear at a time so that
you are in 1st gear when you come
to a complete stop.

brakes at the same time. Normally
the front brake sho uld be applied a lit-

fully disengage the clutch as neces-
sary to keep the engine from stalling.

the tires to skid. When turnin g a cor-

duce your speed before you get into
the corner.
For emergency braking, disregard
downshifting, and concentrate on
