    Maintenance intervals

    Finally got an hour meter hooked up to the bike since we're riding more and I have 2 bikes to maintain. What hours do you guys usually do all the maintenance at? And what do I gotta do. I know I have to do oil change, check valves, clean/replace air filter, chain care, anything else Im missing?

    Re: Maintenance intervals

    You change the filter every time or wash it? And we average a bit over an hour of ride time every time we go out, so you change it every 4-5 hours of ride time?

    Re: Maintenance intervals

    Change them usually I buy the Maxima pre oiled ones for $9.00. I usually do @ 2 Hours track time (Im at the track for 5 or 6 hours)

    You have to look at it before every ride and decide.

    Re: Maintenance intervals

    You are so slow that you can just change the oil and filter at the end of the year. Lube your chain every ride though!

    Re: Maintenance intervals

    And make sure to DRAIN the oil before you put new oil in.

    I know nobody ever does this (myself included), but would you consider going by the clymer, and just stretch it a little?

    I feel like most people only do enough to keep the bike running

    Re: Maintenance intervals

    What is maintenance?

    I fix it when it breaks.

    if it flies with me on it, I maintain it like an airplane. Follow schedule, avoid a major fucking calamity. Bike will perform better as well.

    Re: Maintenance intervals

    Oh, and just wash the damn filter. New one every time is insanity.

    Re: Maintenance intervals

    How often should i be doing the top and bottom ends? I have probably 40 hours on the bike, never had to adjust clearance, and it starts up and runs fine.

    Re: Maintenance intervals

    Top end after it requires 2 valve adjustments in a short hour interval.

    Bottom end... never? See Seth's post above...
