NOTE
The transmission is equipped with a
positive neutral finder. When the mo-
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. T he transmission will
shift only into neutral.
Braking
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
