Might be a little late to ask Picked up a 2006 525 EXC this weekend to compliment my fantastic 990 streetbike. I made it about 65 pages into this thread before I figured it might be a really bad (good idea). Paid $2700, it has 350hrs/5500 miles. Looking to rip around in a few parks around the Seattle area this summer and then maybe do some longer trips. First Impression: :eek1 Wheelie city. This thing is NOT like my DRZ400 was. And after taking an hour to change the oil, I definitely realize its not my DRZ. Here are my takeaways from that megathread: -Fan kit: Necessary -Oil Cooler / Cush Hub: Only needed for extended highway riding -Steering Damper: Good idea but not necessary Maintenance Plan: Oil (done) Valves/Plug/Coolant (to be done tonight) Repack exhaust Make it streetlegalish (its plated already) Freshen forks, possibly the shock as well, might need a respring (I'm 200lb) Ride? Am I OK to assume that until it starts to run worse the top/bottom end should be happy? Or should I pull it apart to check everything? Thanks guys!
