torcycle is standing still, the transmis-
sion cannot be shifted past neutral
from 1st gear. To use the positive
neutral finder, shift down to 1st gear,
then lift up on the shift pedal while
standing still. The transm ission will
shift only into neutral.

Close the throttle completely, leav-
ing the clutch engaged (except when
shifting gears) so that the e ng ine 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.
When stopping, always apply both
brakes at the same time. Normally
the front brake should be applied a lit-
tle more than the rear. Shift down or
fully disengage the clutch as neces-
sary to keep the engine from stalling.
Never lock the brakes, or it will cause
the t ires to skid. When turning a cor-
ner, it is better not to brake at all. Re-
duce your speed before you get into
the corner.
For e mergency braking, disrega rd
