Major Service - CBRF3 - whats involved?

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by lukemc, Sep 25, 2006.

  1. Ive had my CBRF3 for over 12thousand kays now, changed the plugs when i first brought it and have changed the oil and filter 3 times. Now comes time for me to admit i cant do much else and assume its time for a "major" service at a mechanic.

    What should i be getting checked out? I dont want to walk in and say, can i get the "major" service thanks (as being skeptical i can only assume this would mean, please ream me!)



    Any advice welcome.

  3. I'd be guessing and say the main things to do are carby tune/balance, perhaps valve clearances (check your manual for when it needs to be done) and a check of the other fluids and consumables. It's possible they'd flush your brake lines for you, possibly look at new pads depending how hard you are on them.

    But the $$$ bits are the valves and carbies, and they're the bits that you probably aren't that confident doing... right? :)
