Engine stop/kill switch on an OHM

As with other functions, keep your weight forward for better braking control.

  • Ease up on the throttle.
  • Keep your weight forward and over the footpegs.
  • Press your knees against the gas tank to keep your weight forward and balanced.
  • Although the front brake is most effective for stopping on most surfaces, practice using front and rear brakes on all surfaces.
  • Use the engine stop/kill switch during normal and emergency stops.
  • After stopping, turn off the ignition key or switch to save your battery.
