How many miles are on your bike? Answer that question and we can tell you what your next series of maintenance items are going to be.

Also, how hard do you ride your bike? What time of temps do you ride in? And how long does the bike usually sit between rides? Those will help us answer which type of oil and how often to change it.

Sorry about taking so long to respond, I actually forgot about your request.

Here's a list of what you should have had done by the 6k km mark:
Spark plugs cleaned and gapped; Air suction valve check; fuel line inspection; oil change; emmisions equipment check; steering check; clutch adjustment; brake pad check.

There were a couple others, but they are stuff you should check before you ride, like the chain lubing and slack check, brake fluid level, etc.

At 12k km, you are due for all of the above, plus valve clearance inspection; air filter cleaning; carb synch and throttle freeplay adjustment; oil filter change; suspension inspections (look for leaks); swingarm pivot lubing.

The next service is at 18k km, and its the first list all over again.

BC.
