New bike

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by Saml, Apr 28, 2006.

  1. My bikes new, but I want to know
    whats the best thing I can do in the way of maintaining my bike? and how often?

    I want to learn to take care of things myself but I'm starting from the ground up.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    This isn't a bad site to give you an insight into some things you should be looking into/out for especially as a new rider
    There is also heaps of info around on this site to help you with just about everything! :grin:

    Good Luck
  3. whats the bike? get your bikes owners manual & service manual if you can. There is a basic schedule in the back of the owners manual... ITS WAY TO BASIC! put a call out to other owners of teh bike and see if there are any qirks to be checking on...

    i have an owner's manual, but I don't find that very informative.

    I've been searching the internet for a service manual. That would be fantastic..
  5. it takes alot of searching but it is worth it... Mine is $150 or so form peter stevens and not worth it if you can downlaod it for free :wink:
