Hi All, I'm new to dirt bikes and most maintenance. I've been asking for help in a lot of areas and have been getting it. Thanks! My bike has about 5500 miles on it, but it's been sitting a while. I am in the process of: UPDATES AS OF JAN 2012 in GREEN UPDATES AS OF FEB 2012 In YELLOW replacing tires (just took wheels off tonight) Front on...but i need to refill the brakes before torquing down re-filling the front brakes (screwed this up tonight, too) Done...mighty vac did great! fixing a coolant leak at the thermostat o-ring (waiting for parts) Done!!! changing the oil (waiting until I get my wheels back on) Done...couldn't wait for the springs...it was actually pretty easy...not as hard or messy as everyone thinks it will be.Changed again yesterday - lots of metal on the magnet and I broke the banjo bolt!! having stiff springs installed (I'm too hefty for the stock springs at 250 lbs) Can't affor this month Done by Trailtricks!! Awesome!! figuring out why my radiator fan doesn't get power.replaced thermoswitch and it works fine. I just may need to get a lower temperature thermo to cool it off before 98C.Got new Thermo and radiator cap...works great! I think the fan is broken again - need to check the wiring and fuse. buying lots of metric tools I don't already have still acquiring...bought a carb adjust tool - makes that a lot easier cleaning everything Done!!! enough for now...it IS a DIRT bike after all. needs more love here!! getting a new license plate (mine is split in two) DONE! annoying my wife Done daily!! stepping this up to twice daily. Brake light fixed today, too!!! Need C/S sprocket with more teeth to go faster on hwys.Had a 42T put on the rear and the bike runs comfortably at 75 mph. However, I can feel the difference in giddyup in second gear big time.
