    Hey everyone, I'm getting supplies for my 15km maintenance and i'm planning on doing oil, valve check, spark plugs, water pump preventative maintenance.

    Anything I'm missing, any other suggestions of supplies i need to pick up?


    thanks in advance

    Thanks mate, I've read through quite a bit and I know this is totally one of those threads that's begging to be flamed but unfortunately I'm working some pretty intense hours lately and my 990 (2010) is my daily rider so I have to place an order for supplies soon. So far I have:

    oil change stuff (oil + filter)
    CJ Designs oil plug extension
    CJ Designs water pump kit
    radiator crush washer
    spark plugs

    If I need to change valve shims I'll address that bridge when i cross it.

    I thought about blocking off sass plates while I have it completely taken down but not sure it's worth it for the 990. I put in a K&N air filter and am pretty happy with it.
