    HELP! JUST GOT A BIKE and I NEED UR HELP

    Hey all I just got a bike from my buddy which he hasnt ridden for a bit over a year. What do I need to do to give my bike a COMPLETE tune up.

    I'm bringing it in to imperial as soon as I can and what I have in mind so far is:

    Change front tire (has a few bumps)
    Change the chain (gettin kinda rusty)
    Get a new breaks for the front (I only have one break pad- usually there is a pad on each side, mine only has it on one side, anybody have any idea how much it costs?)

    What types of fluids should I change. My oil? what else... Can somebody give me an estimate of how much everything might cost? Any help is much appreciated, CHEERS

    For a complete tune up and new brake pads and a tire for the front be prepared to spend some serious coin. Pads should be changed to new ones on both sides at once so they wear evenly. A two new pairs will run you close to $100. If it's sat for a year the carbs may need a full cleaning and that'll run you a good hour and a bit for labour.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    I did the same thing when I bought my bike, and it had sat for over a year. I just told the guys at Imperial what was up, and Gord gave it a good once over. All fluids certainly, he recommended a few other things after looking the bike over and I said yes to all. They're good guys, not going to screw you so if you tell them the situation they'll set you up.

    But yes expect to pay, it was a bit over $500 if I recall correctly. And no new tires.
