  1. Place the bike on level ground on its center stand.
  2. Have an assistant sit forward on the seat to keep the rear wheel off the ground.
  3. Push hard on the rear wheel (sideways) to check for side play in the rear swing arm bearings.
  4. Remove the frame right-hand trim cap (Figure 91) and make sure the swing arm pivot bolt and nut are tight.
  5. Make sure the shock absorber upper (Figure 92) and lower (A, Figure 93) bolts and nuts are tight.
  6. Make sure the shock absorber lever assembly bolts and nuts are tight.
  7. Make sure the rear axle nut is tight (Figure 94). On models so equipped, make sure the cotter pin is in place.

There are 2 different handlebar configurations used on these models, and they are covered in separate procedures. The 1989 model is equipped with a separate "clip-on" type short handlebar on each side that can be removed separately.

From 1990-on, the handlebar is a single continuous bar that is removed as an assembly.


Refer to Figure 49 for this procedure.


  1. Remove the fuel tank as described in Chapter Eight.
  2. Unscrew and remove the rear view mirrors from the handlebar holder plate.
  3. Remove the plastic strap on each side securing the handlebar switch electrical cables to the handlebar.
