Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Connections to Adapter: Digital Meter (+) → R (sensor BL) lead Digital Meter (–) → BK (sensor BR/BK) lead

Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Input Voltage Standard: DC 4.75 5.25 V


If the reading is within the standard, check the output voltage (see Vehicle-down Sensor Output Voltage Inspection).

If the reading is out of the standard, remove the ECU and check the wiring for continuity between main harness connectors.

Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

Disconnect the ECU and sensor connectors.

Valve-to-Guide Clearance Measurement (Wobble Method)
If a small bore gauge is not available, inspect the valve guide wear by measuring the valve to valve guide clearance with the wobble method as indicated below. Insert a new valve [A] into the guide [B] and set a dial gauge against the stem perpendicular to it as close as possible to the cy ...

Rear Sprocket Warp Inspection
Raise the rear wheel off the ground with the stand so that it will turn freely. Set a dial gauge [A] against the rear sprocket [B] near the teeth as shown in the figure, and rotate [C] the rear wheel to measure the sprocket runout (warp). The difference between the highest and lowest di ...
