The battery is very important for proper functioning of the ignition and lighting system. It is located in the toolbox in a special container. The toolbox can be opened with the nose on the ignition key or with a coin. Engine readiness and reliability depend to a large extent on the condition of the battery. It therefore requires regular maintenance. Before the motorcycle is put into operation for the first time, the standardized 6 Ah battery must be properly charged with battery acid (spec. Weight 1.28 in charged condition) filled and charged at foreign power source. Any battery charging station can do this work. In continuous operation, recharging at an external power source is usually not necessary. On the other hand, it is necessary to check the acid level of the battery about every 3,000 km, and possibly. By topping up with distilled water to supplement until the acid in each cell is about 5R12;10 mm above the plates. The collector connections should always be kept clean, checked for tight fit and good contact, and greased with Äronix after each cleaning.
Occasional checking of the acid density and cell voltage according to the battery manufacturer's specifications by the workshop is recommended. A vent hose is attached to the battery lid, which is routed through the rear wall of the toolbox into the open air and allows the gases to be extracted without hindrance. (Protection of tools from oxidation.) When installing the battery, pay attention to the correct position of the venting hose. Be careful when working on the battery; acid splashes eat away at clothes!
Air Filter Cleaning:
To clean the air filter, loosen the side and top screws of the carburetor cowling and remove the right cowling. After loosening the hexagon nut on the clamping screw of the air filter mounting, the filter can be pulled off to the rear. The filter is washed out in benzine. Must be wetted with engine oil. Care must be taken that the excess oil drips off. The air filter is slid back onto the carburetor neck. The nut of the clamping screw well tightened. In snow. Ice or. In sandy or dusty areas, the air filter must be cleaned more frequently. A dirty air filter causes irregular engine running, smoke formation, high consumption and poor performance. The engine must never be started without an air filter!
Fuel filter cleaning:
In the supply line to the carburetor, behind the fuel tap, lies the fuel filter. For cleaning (every 3000 km) close the tap and loosen the fuel line at the tap by unscrewing the union nut with 17 mm open-end wrench, remove the filter and wash it out well in gasoline. Then reinsert the filter so that the spring of the filter is on the tap. Then tighten the fuel line.
