10 000 km Service
« on: April 01, 2015, 07:28:43 am »
Hi everyone,

My bike is currently on 9500 km and I want to know what are the main things I need to do when service the bike and what parts I need to start ordering?

Your advise would be much appreciated.

Thanks ;)

I can't remember what the factory recommends but I'd do the following regardless of wiht they say...as well as what they say to do...

First clean it really well. But not pressure clean, just a right good scrub up.

1. Oil and filters...no brainer there. In fact if you can, do the oil twice in a two week period. Clean the muck out!
2. Air filter.
3. Spark plug.
4. Fuel filter check (the one in the gas tank), and while you're about it clean the tank out. Also check for rubbing fuel line on the frame.
5. Fuel injector. Get it cleaned, tested professionally. It cost very little to get it done.
6. Pop your battery and get it tested.
7. Steering head bearing, check and grease, same for wheel bearings, swing arm etc.
8. Valve clearances, and cam chain adjuster.
9. Tires, chain and sprocket check.
10. Check and re torque all nuts, bolts to spec.
11. Fork seals. Check for leaks.
12. Visual check...take your time and try to check all electrical wires that you can.
13. New brake fluid, check your pads as well.
14. New clutch fluid.
Hope this helps.

And I forgot, drain the radiator and flush before re filling.

Hey, can I ask if you topped up the oil at all along the way to 10000km? Or was it god from the first service?
