I bought this bike about 3 weeks ago. It has about 30,000km. The bike was stored before I bought it but I didn't do anything prior to riding it. It came out of the garage and I rode it. Now, I'd like to get few things done before I keep riding it, because the bike has developed few noises that i'm not too pleased about. I'm new at this (riding...) so i'm hoping I could get some tips from you guys...
-What type of oil do you recommend?
-I've seen Honda Recommended Oil for $6/litre and some $20/litre oil.
(I'd like to get something that will not only work good for the bike, but also, plug holes and clean the engine...After all it's a 30,000km engine.)
-What fuel liquids do you recommend?
-Once again, i'd like something that will keep that motor running through high rpm's and for a long time...
ANYTHING ELSE I MISSED???
Also there's a tiny ticking noise coming from the engine when at idle...It's really quiet but i can hear it. Now people are telling me i'm hearing things but I'd like to catch things while they are a small problem.
Another thing that's bothering me is when the bike is cruising at a constant speed of 4000rpm or higher or when i'm downshifting from with in that area, there seems to be a rattle or scratching noise, like there's sand in the engine.
I'm not sure if i'm paranoid abit or if honda's are supposed to sound like that but i'd really like to figure out what's going on...
My budy's got a 02 r6. He reved it to 10rpms and you can hardly hear the motor. I go that high and my motor is just screaming. I have a Qarkapovic full exhaust and he's got stock. Are Honda's loud compared to other bikes or (here we go again) is something wrong?
Anything else I might of missed?
Thanks for your patience...
