BRAKES, WHEELS AND FINAL DRIVE
All models covered in this manual have hydraulically operated disc brakes, with twin discs at the front and a single disc at the rear.
On all models the front calipers have four opposed pistons, and the rear has a sliding caliper with a single piston.
The drive to the rear wheel is by chain and sprockets. The rear wheel incorporates a rubber 'cush-drive'.
All models are fitted with cast alloy wheels designed for tubeless tires only.
Caution: Disc brake components rarely require disassembly. Do not disassemble components unless absolutely necessary.
If a hydraulic brake hose is loosened or disconnected, the banjo union sealing washers must be replaced with new ones and the system must be bled upon reassembly.
Do not use solvents on internal brake components. Solvents will cause the seals to swell and distort. Use only clean DOT 4 brake fluid for cleaning.
Use care when working with brake fluid as it can injure your eyes and it will damage painted surfaces and plastic parts.
SIDESTAND SWITCH: CHECK
- The sidestand switch is mounted on the stand pivot. The switch is part of the starter interlock safety circuit which prevents or stops the engine running if the transmission is in gear while the sidestand is down, and prevents the engine from starting if the transmission is in gear unless the sidestand is up and the clutch is pulled in.
Before checking the electrical circuit, check the fuse (see Section 5).
- On RR-4 and RR-5 models remove the left-hand lower fairing left-hand side panel (see Chapter 7), then trace the wiring from the switch and disconnect at the green 2-pin wiring connector inside the rubber boot - release the cable tie from the boot (see illustration).
On RR-6 and RR-7 models trace the wiring from the switch and disconnect at the black 2-pin wiring connector (see illustration).
