Yamaha NMAX Periodic Maintenance Schedule Guide

Hello, here I am again, Erwin Salarda. We have now the new tutorial about the periodic maintenance schedule guide for Yamaha NMAX. Do you have a Yamaha NMAX? You’d like to know when it will require routine maintenance. This is a blog post dedicated to you. I’ve compiled a list of all the Yamaha NMAX maintenance schedules to assist you in taking care of your motorcycle. Please read the blog post below. Thank you!

  • The annual checks must be performed every year, except if a kilometer-based (or mileage-based) maintenance is, performed instead.
  • From 20000 km (12000 mi), repeat the maintenance intervals starting from 4000 km (2400 mi).

 

NMAX FUEL CAPACITY

FUEL LINE MAINTENANCE

• Check fuel level in fuel tank.
• Refuel if necessary.
• Check fuel line for leakage.
• Check fuel tank overflow hose for obstructions, cracks or damage, and check hose connection.

Recommended fuel:

Regular unleaded gasoline (Gasohol [E10] acceptable)
Fuel tank capacity:
6.6 L (1.7 US gal, 1.5 Imp.gal)
Fuel reserve amount:
1.4 L (0.37 US gal, 0.31 Imp.gal)

Note: Use only unleaded gasoline. The use of leaded gasoline will cause severe damage to internal engine parts, such as the valves and piston rings, as well as to the exhaust system.

Tips for reducing fuel consumption

Fuel consumption depends largely on your riding style. Consider the following tips to reduce fuel consumption:

  • Avoid high engine speeds during acceleration.
  • Avoid high engine speeds with no load on the engine.
  • Turn the engine off instead of letting it idle for an extended length of time (e.g., in traffic jams, at traffic lights or at railroad crossings).

ENGINE OIL MAINTENANCE

The oil change indicator “OIL” will flash at the initial 1000 km (600 mi), then at 4000 km (2500 mi) and every 4000 km(2500 mi) thereafter to indicate that the engine oil should be changed.

After changing the engine oil, you must reset the oil change tripmeter and the oil change indicator.
