The likelihood of tire failure increases with tread wear. It is estimated that the majority of all tire failures occur during the last 10% of usable tread wear. Check tire tread for excessive wear, deep cuts, and embedded objects, such as stones, nails, etc.
FRONT SUSPENSION: FORK OIL CHANGE
Also check for high spots that indicate internal tire damage. Replace tires that show high spots or swelling.
If there is a nail in a tire, mark its location with a light crayon before pulling it out. This will help locate the hole for repair. Refer to Chapter Ten for tire changing procedures.
Measure tread wear at the center of the tire tread with a tread depth gauge or small ruler. Because tires sometimes wear unevenly, measure wear at several points.
Replace the original equipment tires if any tread depth measurement is less than the value specified in Table 2.
Yamaha does not provide an oil change interval for the front fork. Nonetheless, it is a good practice to change the fork oil once a year. If the fork oil becomes contaminated with dirt and water, change it immediately.
Changing the fork oil requires disassembling and assembling the fork leg. Refer to Removal/Disassembly (Fork Leg Requires Service) and Fork Leg Assembly in Chapter Eleven.
