● Hydraulic brake service
• After disassembling the brake master cylinders and calipers, always change the fluid. Regularly check the brake fluid levels and fill the reservoirs as required.
• Every two years replace the internal components of the brake master cylinders and calipers, and change the brake fluid.
• Replace the brake hoses every four years or if cracked or damaged.

About the 2017 Yamaha SCR950

Unlike most early scramblers out there, the SCR950 runs a 60-degree V-twin engine. Yamaha kept things simple and light with air cooling, and a single over-head cam to actuate the four valves within each pent-roof combustion chamber. The 85 mm bore and 83 mm stroke, ceramic-composite coated cylinders define a nearly square engine, and the relatively low, 9-to-1 compression ratio will keep it from running too awful hot while preventing the forged aluminum pistons and bearings from taking a beating.

All this adds up to a 942 cc (58 cubic-inches) displacement motor, and as usual with V-twins, the power comes on early. This mill cranks out 54.1 pound-feet of torque at 3,400 RPM and 48.5 horsepower at 5,400 RPM , not terribly impressive given the 547-pound curb weight, but it’s built for controlled technical riding, not big jumps or complicated tricks. A five-speed transmission uses that power to wring 51 mpg out of the rig, and a belt-and-pulley drive makes the final connection to the rear wheel.
