MAINTENANCE AN D ADJUSTMENT 139
Standard Tire (Tube-type)
Mixing tire brands and types can
adversely affect handling and
cause an accident resulting in
injury or death. Always use the
same manufacturer ’s tires on
both front and rear wheels.
New tires are slippery and m ay
cause loss of control and injury.
A break-in period of 160 km (100
miles) is necessary to estab-
lish normal tire traction. During
break-in, avoid sudden and max-
imum braking and acceleration,
and hard cornering.
The battery installed in this motorcy-
cle is a sealed type, so it is not nec-
essary to check the battery electrolyte
level or add distilled water.
