7,000 miles any service I need to do??? Help Please

Ok guys

I got my bike at 2,500 miles

got no manual with it, I did oil changes every 2,000 miles or so with synthetic repsol oil and filter

now I have about 7,000 miles, put on new tires and wondering, do I have to get the bike serviced at that mileage
the bike runs fine and starts like it always has


thx guys

Leave it alone until about 16k when you check the valve clearance. Other than that just keep on doing what you're doing, might want to lube the clutch cable. Your oil change might be a little overkill changing at 2k, 3000 miles should be just fine.

^^^You could change your plugs but I highly doubt you need to...

I just rolled 8500 on mine and I did a oil change,brake pads, plugs, coolant to wet wetter, filter, tires, brake fluid the works and it was over kill...But I treat my baby good

2000 miles is over kill like said above, think 25-3500 every oil change...16,000 miles I would think hes doing a complete valve adjustment along with everything I said above

Never use grease on your cables. It will only attract more crude and cause more problems.

There are various spray types that do a fair job. You can get a tool that clamps on the cable to keep it from going everywhere.

Never use anything that remains sticky and doesn't dry. Like grease, it will make things worst over time.

A little graphite is all I would ever use around the throttle housing. Can also be used on the cables.

Every year or 2 I remove the cables
(clutch and throttle) and let a 3in1 type oil drip and few drops at a time until it appears out the other end. Remove any excess, let dry completely and reinstall.

hey guys, brake pads, how often do you change yours
I have 8,000 miles and I have the HH pads

I can hear some squeeking at the beggining when I just start the ride, once they warm up they feel fine

thx
