The author of this manual has the conviction that the only way in which a meaningful and easy to follow text can be
written is first to do the work himself, under conditions similar to those found in the average household. As a result, the hands seen in the photographs are those of the author. Even the machines are not new: examples that have covered a consider- able mileage were selected so that the conditions encountered would be typical of those found by the average owner. Unless specially mentioned, and therefore considered essential, Honda service tools have not been used. There is
invariably some alternative means of slackening or removing some vital component when service tools are not available and
isk of damage has to be avoided at all costs. Each of the six Chapters is divided into numbered Sections. Within the Sections are numbered paragraphs. In consequence, cross reference throughout this manual is both straightforward
and logical. When a reference is made ‘See Section 5.12′ it means Section 5, paragraph 12 in the same Chapter. If another
Chapter were meant, the text would read ‘See Chapter 2, Section 5.12′. All photographs are captioned with a Section/paragraph number to which they refer and are always relevant to the Chapter text adjacent. Figure numbers (usually line illustrations) appear in numerical order, within a given Chapter. Fig. 1.1 therefore refers o the first figure in Chapter 1. Left-hand and right-hand descriptions of the machines and their component parts refer to the right and left of a given machine when the rider is seated normally. Motorcycle manufacturers continually make changes to specifications and recommendations, and these, when notified,mare incorporated into our manuals at the earliest opportunity.
We take great pride in the accuracy of information given in this manual, but motorcycle manufacturers make alterations and design changes during the production run of a particular n motorcycle of which they do not inform us. No liability can be ccepted by the authors or publishers for loss, damage or injury caused by any errors in, or omissions from, the information give

Always make a pre-ride inspection before you start the engine. You may prevent an accident or equipment damage. 2 Many accidents involve inexperienced riders. Most countries require a special riding test or license. Make sure you are qualified before you ride. NEVER lend your motorcycle to an inexperienced rider. 3 Many car/motorcycle accidents happen because the car driver does not “ see the motorcyclist. Make yourself conspicuous to help avoid the accident that is not your fault: • Wear bright or reflective clothing • Don’t drive in another motorist’s “blind spot” 4 Obey all national, and local laws and regulations Excessive speed is a factor in many accidents. Obey the speed limits am NEVER travel faster than conditions warrant • Signal before you make a turn or lane change. Your size and manoeuvrability can surprise other motorists.5 Don’t let other motorists surprise you. Use extra caution at intersections, parking entrances and exits and driveways. 6 Keep both hands on the handlebars and both feet on the footrests while riding. A passenger should hold onto the motorcycle or the rider with both hands, and keep both feet on the passenger footrests. PROTECTIVE APPAREL
1 Most motorcycle accidents fatalities are due to head impact. ALWAYS wear a helmet. You should also wear a face shield or goggles; boots, gloves, and protective clothing. A passenger needs the same protection. The exhaust system becomes very hot during operation, and it remains hot after operation. Never touch any part of the hot exhaust system. Wear clothing that fully covers your legs.
Do not wear loose clothing which could catch on the control levers, footrests, or wheels
