OK kiddies. Time to help me write another Article Forum item.
I'm looking for definitive procedures for the simple regular or annual servicing for the backyard mechanics or wannabe's among us.
I got the idea for this while writing up the procedure I use for cleaning throttle cable and twist grips. Seems like there's a lot of this sort of stuff that keeps coming up. So it's time for a FAQ writing session.
I'm not looking to replace the darn shop manual that you should all go and buy but rather I'd like to describe how some of the simple stuff can be done. Things like cleaning the cables, flushing through new brake fluid, new coolant or replacing an air filter without dropping the screwdriver down the carb. Minor stuff like that. It would be nice to concentrate on Spring Bike Tuneup items as a companion to Actionmechanic's Rider Tune Up article
I'll start by copying over the throttle cable stuff...
