PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AND MINOR REPAIR

1. Battery

EAU04035

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 bat- tery 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 op- tional electrical accessories.

WARNING Electrolyte is poisonous and dangerous since it contains sul- furic acid, which causes severe burns. Avoid any contact with skin, eyes or clothing and al- ways shield your eyes when working near batteries. In case of contact, administer the fol- lowing FIRST AID.

  • EXTERNAL: Flush with plenty of water.

  • INTERNAL: Drink large quan- tities of water or milk and im- mediately call a physician.

  • EYES: Flush with water for 15 minutes and seek prompt medical attention.

Batteries produce explosive hy- drogen gas. Therefore, keep sparks, flames, cigarettes, etc., away from the battery and pro- vide sufficient ventilation when charging it in an enclosed space.
