Great job Ferrett, and a "how to" section would be a very welcome addition to the site.

RE: How to do your own 600 mile service
Couple things I noticed on re- reading ( besides the spelling and grammatical errors) but cant seem to correct due to editing issues

First when adjusting the rear chain you'll also need a 27 mm wrench or socket and ratchet on left hand side to keep axle from turning

I should have mentioned the fuse puller should be in your tool kit bag

I also forgot to post torque spec for oil filter which was I believe is 19 ft lbs

Also once you've completed the service and run the bike for a few minutes go ack and check to make sure the drain plug and filter are not leaking.

And heres the pic that goes with measuring throttle play. I am using the metric side of the ruler and it shows throttle play at 4 mm ( spec 2-6 mm)

İmage

The correct model is PL14612 which is 2.5". There is not adequate clearance between the header pipes to fit the 3.25" model.

Thanks for the updated info ridesalot!

RE: How to do your own 600 mile service
*** IMPORTANT****. It has been mentioned to me that in the 5 th picture down, where I am pointing to the engine oil drain bolt, that as viewed from the side,saying to turn bolt counter clockwise could be construed as turning the bolt from left to right, therby tightening the bolt.

You want to turn the bolt counter-clockwise from head on, as if you were looking at the bolt while lying directly underneath it looking up. Remember the old adage..righty-tighty, lefty-loosey

When using a ratchet, I always check it to see if it is in the loosen or tighten mode by holding onto the socket and working the ratchet a few turns before I ever stick the socket on the bolt, so I know there is no mistake.

Sorry if there is any confusion.

In the service manual on page 3-15, before installing the new oil filter,

"If the oil filter boss is loose, applay a locking agent to the oil filter boss threads and torque to the specifed torque".

Specified torque is: 13 foot pounds.

The oil filter boss is the threaded tube the filter screws on to.

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!

Gosh, I've never seen one of those loose, ever, but I guess it's worthwhile checking. I suppose you'd need 2 big nuts to lock together to check torque on that?

2 nuts is what I would figure too.

I've heard of it loosening on 4-stroke outboards, but thats about it.

Just thought I'd mention it as its in the manual. Maybe because the oil filter torque spec is so high and they though it might spin the boss out?

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!
