ENGINE OIL LEVEL

Place the motorcycle on its center stand and shift into neutral.

Start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes.

Stop the engine, remove the oil filler cap/dipstick and wipe clean.
Check the oil level with the oil filler cap/dipstick by inserting it without screwing it in.

NOTE


If the oil level is below the lower level mark on the dipstick, fill to the upper level mark with the recomended oil.
Check the O-ring for damage.

ENGINE OIL CHANGE

NOTE


Remove the oil filler cap/dipstick and drain bolt. (17mm)
With the engine stop switch OFF, start the starter motor for a few seconds to drain any oil which may be left in the engine.

NOTE


After the oil has drained, check that the drain bolt sealing washer is in good condition, and install the bolt.

TORQUE: 35 N.m (3.5 kg-m, 25 ft-lb)

Fill the crankcase with the correct quantity of the recommended oil.

OIL CAPACITY:
   2.8 lit (2.94 US qt, 2.46 Imp qt) after disassembly
    2.3 lit (2.43 US qt, 2.02 Imp qt) at oil filter and oil change
    2.2 lit (2.32 US qt, 1.94 Imp qt) after draining

RECOMENDED OIL:Honda 4-stroke oil or equivalent
API service classification: SE or SF
VISCOSITY: SAE 10W-40
Install the oil filler cap/dipstick.
Start the engine and let it idle for 2-3 minutes.

Stop the engine and wait a few minutes, then check that the oil level is at the upper level mark.

Check that there are no oil leaks.

Page 2-4

OIL FILTER CHANGE

Drain the engine oil (page 2-3).

CAUTION


Remove the drive sprocet cover (page 8-2).
Remove the oil filter with a filter wrench.

TOOL:
Oil filter wrench        07HAA-PJ70100

Apply oil to the new oil fiter O-ring and install the new oil filter.

Tighten the oil filter with a filter wrench.

Torque: 10 N.m (1.0 kg-m, 7.2 ft-lb)

Fill the engine with recomended oil (page 2-3).

OIL PRESSURE CHECK

Warm the engine up to normal poeration tempererature (approximatesly 80° C/176° F).
Stop the engine.

WARNING



Remove the oil pressure switch and connect an oil pressure gauge attachment and gauge to the pressure switch hole.
Check the oil level.
TOOLS:
Oil pressure gauge attachment 07510-4220100 or
equivalent commertially
available in U.S.A.
Oil pressure gauge 07506-3000000 or
equivalent commertially
available in U.S.A.
Start the engine and check the oil pressure at 6,000 rpm.
OIL PRESSURE:
   441 kPa (4.5 kg/cm-sq, 64 psi) at 6000 rpm (80°C/176°F)

Stop the engine.

Apply 3-BOND® sealant or equivalent to the pressure switch therads and install.
TORQUE: 12 N.m (1.2 kg-m, 9 ft-lb)

Connect the oil pressure switch wire and start the engine.
Check that the oil pressure warning indicator goes out after one or two seconds. If the oil pressure warning indicattor stays on, stop the engine immedialtely and determine the cause.

CONTROL CABLE LUBRICATION

Periodically disconnect the throttle and choke cable at their upper ends. Thoroughly lubricate the cables and their pivot points with a commercially available cable lubricant or a light weight oil.

LUBRICATION POINTS

Use general purpose grease when not otherwise specified here.
Apply oil or grease to the other sliding surfaces and cables not shown here.
