  1. Heres a good nooby question.
    What does a "service" mean exactly?
    they check oil, brakes, lube
    or what?

    Anyone got a reccomendation for a Kawasaki dealer to service my ZZR, its approaching 6,000km

  2. depends on what your bike requires and when - your owners manual (if you have one) will outline what maintenance needs to be done at certains times/odometer readings.

    obviously outside of this, if something is busted or not right it will be fixed (or brought to your attention) during a service.
  3. You hope.
  4. Thats why i dont wanna to Jimbo's backyard Fix it. Reputable :D
  5. Unless it's Top Gear.

    "What front brake pads?"
    "What wheel alignment?" :p
  6. Or what .. because it should be a lot more than that.
    - replace oil
    - replace oil filter
    - inspect spark plugs
    - inspect caburettor sync
    - inspect caburettor mixtures
    - inspect head stem bearings
    - inspect all fluids (brake, clutch, cooling)
    - inspect all fasteners (nuts and bolts)
    - inspect electrics
    - lube all pivot points
