Inspect the front and rear brake pads to see if they are worn down to the grooved wear limit line 1. If a pad is worn to the grooved wear limit line, it must be replaced with a new one. After replacing either the front or rear brake pads, the brake lever or pedal must be pumped several times. This will extend the pads to their proper position.

Warning


Riding with worn brake pads will reduce braking performance and will increase your chance of having an accident.

Inspect brake pad wear before each use. Ask your suzuki dealer or qualified mechanic to replace brake pads if any pad is worn to the limit.

 

Warning


Failure to extend brake pads after repair or replacement can cause poor braking performance and may result in an accident.

Before riding, "pump" the brake repeatedly until brake pads are pressed against the brake disks and proper lever/ pedal stroke and firm feel are restored.

Note

: do not squeeze/depress the brake lever/pedal when the pads are not in their positions. It is difficult to push the pistons back and brake fluid leakage may result.
