Pre and Post Ride Checklist
Before each start:
Check your maintenance schedule
Check the oil level
Check the brake linings and brake disks for wear
Check the braking effect
Make sure you have enough fuel in the tank
Check the lighting devices for proper functioning
Check the horn for proper functioning
Check the chain tension
Check the tyre pressure and tyre condition
Check the cooling liquid level
Check all actuating elements for smooth operation
Before you store:
Clean your motorcycle thoroughly
Change the engine oil, the oil filter and the fine filter
Check the quantity and quality of antifreeze and cooling liquid
Allow the engine to warm up, close the fuel tap and wait until the engine stalls. This will prevent the old fuel from resinifying the carburetor jets.
Remove the spark plug and fill approximately 5cc of engine oil into the cylinder through the spark plug hole. Actuate the kickstarter 10 times to distribute the engine oil over the cylinder wall and mount the spark plug again.
Set the piston in the ignition TCD position to close the valves and ducts. Slowly actuate the kickstarter until you hear the automatic decompression click.
Drain the fuel from the tank into a suitable container
Correct the tyre pressure
Oil the bearing points on the control levers, footrests and oil the chain
Remove and charge the batter
Make sure your motorcycle storage area is dry and not subject to extreme fluctuations in temperature
Cover your motorcycle with a breathable cover or blanket.
