Use

a Tutoro chain oiler instead of a scottoiler they are £60 cheaper; http://www.tutorochainoiler.com Get MCN from Greatmagazines.com and pay £1.15 per issue (£60 a year) Buy SDoc100 cleaner its the best, but wait for offers in MCN like BOGGOFF There was a biker credit card which got you 10% off at sportsbikeshop.com but I think its not available any more. Go to bike shows for kit, they normally have good deals on and you can haggle as well. Buy pre-registered bikes, they are a lot cheaper still come with the full warranty and no miles and if you want it restricted the dealer will do it for free.

Vasaline?

just a little bit worried about that,,, really!  as for Joke, I don't think there is any call for that sort of thing on here. but seriously my  C5 was a real amp sucker compared to my Busa  (Timing Retard Eliminator equipped and otherwise enhanced) .

Use Ebay

Do you really need a new part? Find out how much it costs from the OEM, then search ebay. New parts are often cheaper than going to a dealer and 2nd hand ones in good condition are widely available. 

I wouldn't buy some items 2nd hand e.g. brake parts etc but others are fine. I've been happy with everything I've bought so far.
