Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Owners Manual: Stopping and parking

  1. Twist the throttle grip away from yourself to close the throttle completely.
  2.  Apply the front and rear brakes evenly and at the same time.
  3.  Downshift through the gears as road speed decreases.
  4.  Select neutral with the clutch lever squeezed toward the grip (disengaged position) just before the motorcycle stops.

    Neutral position can be confirmed by observing the neutral indicator light.

Warning


Inexperienced riders tend to under utilize the front brake.

This can cause excessive stopping distance and lead to a collision.

Using only the front or rear brake can cause skidding and loss of control.

Apply both brakes evenly and at the same time .

 

Warning


Hard braking while turning may cause wheel skid and loss of control.

Brake before you begin to turn.

 

Warning


Hard braking on wet, loose, rough, or other slippery surfaces can cause wheel skid and loss of control.

Brake lightly and with care on slippery or irregular surfaces.

 

Warning


Following another vehicle too closely can lead to a collision.

As vehicle speeds increase, stopping distance increases progressively.

Be sure you have a safe stopping distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.

  1. Park the motorcycle on a firm, flat surface where it will not fall over.
Warning


A hot muffler can burn you. The muffler will be hot enough to burn you for some time after stopping the engine.

Park the motorcycle where pedestrians or children are not likely to touch the muffler.

Note

: if the motorcycle is to be parked on the side stand on a slight slope, the front end of the motorcycle should face "up" the incline to avoid rolling forward off the side stand. You may leave the motorcycle in 1st gear to help prevent it from rolling off the side stand. Return to neutral before starting engine.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the "off" position.
  2.  Turn the handlebars all the way to the left and lock the steering for security.
  3.  Remove the ignition key.
