Many thanks for replying to my enquiry with regards to the dealer. My brother said exactly the same word’s to me as you did, but when face to face with a so-called professional who tell’s you that they don’t issue service checklists anymore, I was’nt going to put him in a half nelson and demand one ! On one of my rides recently I came across another biker who recommended a fully qualified motorcycle mechanic (Ben Adgie) with some 35 years experience in the trade. His business is 20 miles away (only a further 5 miles on from the idiot dealer !). When I get the chance to speak to him, I will ask if he issues a service checklist and if he would be willing to work on my bike. I have downloaded the owner’s and service manuals (thank’s Marcel), at least now when I do some maintenance on the bike I’ve got some reference to work to. I have alway’s looked after whatever vehicle I’ve owned and am keen to make sure my bike is as well. I am going to order a new oil filter and ‘O’ rings and change the oil myself, I’ll be sure to get some decent oil as well. I’ve clocked-up 1200 mls and according to the owner’s manual the next service is due around 2500 mls. Will I be okay to leave it till then to get the valve clearance checked/adjusted and anything else that’s not within my capability. I can do most thing’s myself and other’s, if somebody shows me first then quite happy to “ave a go”. It’s a pity you don’t live abit closer to where I am then I could call on your service’s Marcel, anyway you’ve got your day job. I have been interested in the recommendation’s re: up-grades such as coil, fuel lines, engine mounting bolts etc. Would you suggest I leave it till something play’s up or up-grade as & when I want to ? Many thanks for your help Marcel, going to sign off now.
A safe ride to you, regard’s Nigel.
