This describes the basic safe steps to disable the bike's powertrain before working on it.

Any work around the vehicle that does not require it to be on should start with this.
This derives from the general philosophy and practice of Lockout-tagout procedures in industrial workplace settings.
  • Prevent inadvertent, unexpected, or just inappropriate wheel and belt spinup.

  1. Toggle the cutout switch to off.
  2. Key off the bike.
  3. Remove the key from the ignition lock to prevent re-energizing without positive intent.
  4. Remove power sources that could charge the bike.
    • Unplug the cord feeding the onboard charger.
    • Disconnect any accessory charging connector to the accessory charging port.
    • Disconnect any J1772 or Type 2 connector to your Charge Tank or other onboard aftermarket charging equipment.
