Folks; Its been a turbulent but enjoyable first six months with my bike, and she's starting to grow up. Just the other day she clicked over 12,000kms so I guess its major service time. Alot of the stuff I should be able to tackle on my own using the info from ninja250.org, but there are some things that its probably not a good idea to do by myself - such as the valve gaps adjustments. So if there is anyone in the Sydney area who is available to come and give me a hand, please let me know. I can pay in beer, or in other ways should you be that way inclined. Heres to hoping you're not! Thanks all!
