Prepping for this coming season
« on: January 08, 2020, 10:12:25 AM »

Hi Guys
So what are you all doing to make sure your bike is ready to go for this coming season?

Check your brake pads, lines and fluid.
Flush your brake fluid.
Check all bolts and fasteners
Change your oil
Is your suspension fresh?
Check your footpegs, shifter linkage, rear brake pedal
Lube all the pivot points on your bike
Sort out any problems you were having last season
Lube your clutch cable and clutch and brake levers
Make sure all wiring and cables do not interfere with steering your bike
Check the chain and sprockets for wear and tight spots
What condition are the tires in?
Is your bodywork secured tightly?  Have all the same fasteners holding it together?
Check the exhaust system and all mounting brackets
Have you removed the bodywork and thoroughly cleaned your entire bike? Remove all the dirt and grime from everything, clean the wheels, rotors and brake calipers.
If your have a broken swingarm spool, is it repaired yet?
Replace the grips if they are at all worn
Take the time to set all the levers, bars and foot controls perfectly for yourself so you are completely comfortable.
Flush the coolant. ( or water and water wetter)
Clean the radiator fins out from all the dirt and rubber
Check to make sure everything that needs to be safety wired is.
Is your tail section tightly secured to your bike?
Are you the modifications that you wanted to make complete?
Is your suspension set up?

Making sure that your bike is ready for this season is very important to having a great season.  It is the first step toward success at the track this year.  When your bike is ready to go and you are not working on it at the track it makes it so much easier to enjoy yourself and concentrate on riding.  Which is what you went out to do in the first place.

Jim great points to check and even more so the notion that a safe bike removes one danger.
I have always viewed a well prepared bike as important as leathers boots helmet etc.

My OCD has me going through the bike with these.
