Yamaha YZF-R125 Owners Manual: Shifting


Shifting

  1. Shift pedal
  2. Neutral position

Shifting gears lets you control the amount of engine power available for starting off, accelerating, climbing hills, etc.

The gear positions are shown in the illustration.

TIP
To shift the transmission into the neutral position, press the shift pedal down repeatedly until it reaches the end of its travel, and then slightly raise it.

NOTICE

  • Even with the transmission in the neutral position, do not coast for long periods of time with the engine off, and do not tow the motorcycle for long distances. The transmission is properly lubricated only when the engine is running. Inadequate lubrication may damage the transmission.

  • Always use the clutch while changing gears to avoid damaging the engine, transmission, and drive train, which are not designed to withstand the shock of forced shifting.

    Starting the engine
    In order for the ignition circuit cut-off system to enable starting, one of the following conditions must be met: The transmission is in the neutral position. The transmission is in gear ...
