To apply the parking brake:
Pull in the parking brake lever 1 to lock the rear wheel.
To release the parking brake:
Release the parking brake lever by lightly pulling in the lever while pushing the release knob 2.
NOTE: Before riding, check to see if the parking brake indicator light on the dash is OFF. Make sure that the rear brake is fully released so there is no drag on the rear wheel.

Engaging the parking brake while riding can cause rear wheel skid and loss of control.
Use the parking brake lever only when parking and release lever before riding.
