Mini Service

Post  stevemcc on Thu Jan 31 2013, 14:22

Whilst the weather is pants I thought i would prep my cat for the coming year.
So far I have oil, filter and spark plugs ready to change, checked brake pads, tyres, tyre pressures, brake lines, all fluid levels and given it a general once over and all looks ok.
I have also lightly oiled the fecalised portions (shiney bits) of the forks.

What i'm wondering is what else would be a good idea to do whilst I have the fairings off?
Is there anything that needs a squirt of grease? Is it worth changing the coolant?

Any advise would be greatly appriciated.

I suppose a general deep clean of the engine and hard to reach with the fairings on parts and maybe a get some ACF50 or equivelant corrosion inhibitor on the hard to access shiny bits to keep em rust free wouldn't hurt.

Oh and don't forget to pay a bit of attention to the rear shock bottom linkage as it gets a hell of a lot of shite thrown at it and is prone to seizing if not looked after, (ask Ross or me on that one)!!
