CARE AND MAINTENANCE Voltmeter Test See Table 2. The voltmeter test provides a general indicator of battery condition. Check the voltage of the battery to verify that it is in a 100% fully-charged condition. If the open circuit (disconnected) voltage reading is below 12.7 V, charge the battery and then check the voltage again after the battery has set for one to two hours. If the voltage reading is 12.7 V or above, perform a load test. Table 2. Voltmeter Test For Battery Charge Conditions STATE OF CHARGE VOLTAGE (OCV) 100% 12.7 V 75% 12.6 V 50% 12.3 V 25% 12.0 V 0% 11.8 V Disconnection and Removal Refer to a service manual for specific disconnection and removal steps. Pay attention to all warnings and cautions within the manual and remove battery from battery box/tray. Battery Charging Batteries contain sulfuric acid, which could cause severe burns to eyes and skin. Wear a protective face shield, rubberized gloves and protective clothing when working with batteries. KEEP BATTERIES AWAY FROM CHILDREN. (00063a) 1. Never charge a battery without first reviewing the instructions for the charger being used. 2. Perform a voltmeter test to determine the state of charge. See BATTERY TESTING, VOLTMETER TEST. If battery needs to be charged, proceed to Step 3. Remove battery from motorcycle before charging. Electrolyte leakage will damage motorcycle parts. (00213a) Explosive hydrogen gas, which escapes during charging, could cause death or serious injury. Charge battery in a well-ventilated area. Keep open flames, electrical sparks and smoking materials away from battery at all times. KEEP BATTERIES AWAY FROM CHILDREN. (00065a) 3. See applicable service manual and remove the battery from the motorcycle. Place the battery on a level surface. 4. Inspect battery for damage. Replace battery if visibly damaged or frozen. 5. Inspect battery charger, verify that the charger leads are not damaged, frayed or loose

Battery The battery is located under panel D. (See page 6-7 for panel removal and installation procedures.) This motorcycle is equipped with a sealed-type (MF) battery, which does not require any maintenance. There is no need to check the electrolyte or to add distilled water. To charge the battery Have a Yamaha dealer charge the battery as soon as possible if it seems to have discharged. Keep in mind that the battery tends to discharge more quickly if the motorcycle is equipped with optional electrical accessories. EW000116 WARNING ● Electrolyte is poisonous and dangerous since it contains sulfuric acid, which causes severe burns. Avoid any contact with skin, eyes or clothing and always shield your eyes when working near batteries. In case of contact, administer the following FIRST AID. •EXTERNAL: Flush with plenty of water. •INTERNAL: Drink large quantities of water or milk and immediately call a physician. •EYES: Flush with water for 15minutes and seek prompt medical attention. ● Batteries produce explosive hydrogen gas. Therefore, keep sparks, flames, cigarettes, etc., away from the battery and provide sufficient ventilation when charging it in an enclosed space. ● KEEP THIS AND ALL BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. To store the battery 1. If the motorcycle will not be used for more than one month, remove the battery, fully charge it, and then place it in a cool, dry place. 2. If the battery will be stored for more than two months, check it at least once a month and fully charge it if necessary. 3. Fully charge the battery before in- stallation Replacing the fuses The fuse box, which contains the fuses for the individual circuits, is located under panel D. The fuel injection system fuse box is located under panel D. The main fuse box is also located under panel D, beside the battery. (See page 6-7 for panel removal and installation procedures.) If a fuse is blown, replace it as follows. 1. Turn the key to “OFF” and turn off the electrical circuit in question. 2. Remove the blown fuse, and then install a new fuse of the specified amperage.
