  1. Withdraw the fuel tank vent hose (A, Figure 1) from the handlebar cover.
  2. Push up and remove the handlebar cover (B, Figure 1).
  3. Remove cable and hose bands.
  4. Remove the front master cylinder as described in Chapter Fourteen.

Refer to Chapter Three for drive chain cleaning, lubrication, adjustment and measurement. Refer to Table 3 in this chapter for drive chain specifications.

When checking the condition of the chain, also check the condition of the sprockets (Chapter Three).

If either the chain or sprockets are worn, replace all drive components. Using new sprockets with a worn chain, or a new chain on worn sprockets will shorten the life of the new part.

The vehicle is originally equipped with an endless O-ring type chain. This type of chain is recommended because it is internally lubricated and requires minimal maintenance.

The chain is permanently assembled, which increases reliability. However, to remove the chain, the swing arm must be partially disassembled so the chain can pass by the swing arm pivot.
