HOW TO RIDE THE MOTORCYCLE
Leaving the throttle completelyclosed, push the starter button.
Do not operate the starter con-tinuously for more than 5 sec-onds or the starter will overheatand the battery power will droptemporarily. Wait 15 secondsbetween each operation of thestarter to let it cool and the bat-tery power recover.
If the engine is flooded, crank the en-gine over with the throttle fully openuntil the engine starts.
The motorcycle is equipped with astarter lockout switch. This switch isdesigned so that the engine does not start ifthe transmission is ingear and the side stand is down. However, theengine can be started if the clutchlever is pulled and the side stand isfully up.
