I just got my first bike. its an 08 zx-14 (please only give me the obligatory "u r going to die" speech if u really must).
anyway, i am following the manual procedure on break in (mostly). i have exceeded the recommended rpms on several occasions though.
should i do an early oil change? i only have 400km now.
the dealer recommended a $200.00 dollar service at 1000km. something about tightening steering head bolts.
is this necessary/can i do it myself?
can someone give me a good link to a site/thread that goes over preload and damping in detail. the bike feels a bit tightly sprung over bumps, but maybe thats just a sportbike thing. im a little heavier than the 150lb "average" rider though. prob about 210lb with gear on.
