Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Drive Chain Slack Adjustment •Remove the cotter pin [A], and loosen the axle nut [B]. •Loosen the both chain adjuster locknuts [C].
If the chain is too loose, turn in the left and right chain adjuster nuts [D] evenly.
If the chain is too tight, turn out the left and right chain adjuster nuts evenly, and kick the wheel forward.
•Turn both chain adjuster nuts evenly until the drive chain has the correct amount of slack. To keep the chain and wheel properly aligned, the notch [E] on the left wheel alignment indicator [F] should align with the same swing-arm mark or position [G] that the right indicator notch aligns with.
Misalignment of the wheel will result in abnormal wear and may result in an unsafe riding condition.
•Tighten both chain adjuster locknuts securely. •Tighten the axle nut.
Torque - Rear Axle Nut: 98 N·m (10.0 kgf·m, 72 ft·lb)
•Turn the wheel,measure the chain slack again at the tightest position, and readjust if necessary.
•Insert a new cotter pin [A].
○When inserting the cotter pin, if the slots in the nut do not align with the cotter pin hole in the axle, tighten the nut clockwise [B] up to next alignment.
○It should be within 30°.
○Loosen once and tighten again when the slot goes past the nearest hole.
•Bend the cotter pin [A] over the nut [B].
If the rear axle nut is not securely tightened or the cotter pin is not installed, an unsafe riding condition may result.
