Keep an eye on the chain..............it loosens up real easy. I am getting a good RK Gold for mine

Don't go over about ten hours on the stock chain....it will continue to stretch, and if it gets too long, it will eat the sprockets.

Get a Zip-Ty (or another manufacturer) Fuel Screw, so that Atmospheric conditions (e.g. temperature, humidity, Altitude) can be compensated for. Then it will be easy to adjust, rather than having to carry a shortened screwdriver with you.

Get an hourmeter for it....takes the guesswork out of maintenance. If I had to do my "new bike" experience all over again (and I will, just a matter of time) I would check my valve clearances before riding it to ensure they were set correctly and to have an idea of a baseline setting. If the first time you check them happens to be at 50 hours (like someone I know....), you'll know if they changed at all. Not necessary, just nice to know.

:thumbsup:
