Motoman- congrats on your new bike. A manual
is very important, and should have come with your bike, at least mine did. I know some have said they got a special spark plug tool with their bikes but I didn't get that, and it would be handy
since you have to have at least a union and an extension to get it out. Look at some of the older posts here to learn more about the important maintenance on this bike. The main thing is to keep the oil fresh, and some other things to look at soon are the swingarm and steering head bearings, get some grease on them as soon as you can. Other than that just give it the gas and hang on... Oh, and I usually put about a quart and a half or maybe a little more in mine after I drain the oil. Another important thing that is in the manual is how to check the oil, you need to let the engine run a couple minutes then check it right away after you kill it, or else your oil will drain partly back down in the engine and you'll think you are low. hmmm, can't think of anything else right now but I'm sure some of the boys will add more if I forgot anything. Good luck...
