Now I've got three bikes and I realized, a load of maintenance to keep on top of. Just bought all three in last 4 months, and thinking about mods to my bike, and adjustments. What would be the best products to buy for oil, fluids, tools, etc.. Everytime I want to do something, it's a couple of trips to the store. I intend to do some of the mods suggested on this site, carb jetting, speed bleeder etc.. What needles should I order for the carb etc.. What do you guys feel are the most important tools, accessories, and supplies I should have and stock to keep my bikes up and running. Any suggestions are appreciated. ( I'm new at this you know! )

Try using the search in the upper right.

Things like IMS tank, Applied triple clamps, EKP needle, exhausts (some suggested by Clark), greasing linkages, Scotts steering damper, frequent oil changes, etc. are a few popular things that come to mind.

If you do go with the tank. Make sure you accomodate money for a seat. The IMS tank JD refers to is a YZ style tank. It will allow you to move further forward on the bike. This will weight the front end better, to keep the front wheel from washing out.

Also if it still has the stock air filter, pitch and replace with an aftermarket unit.
