1.....7500 mls service inc plugs, oil n filter, antifreeze change, brake n clutch fluid change.......no pics im afraid but i saved the reciepts
the reason im doing this thread is so when i sell ol blacker is that the new owner can really see her history and see what has been done
extras..........
1.... tail tidy
2.....braided front lines
3....arrow end cans
4....rear seat cowl
5....r&g crash protection

im not selling her anytime soon.........im just putting her history with me together in this thread:wink::biggrin:

feck that took some digging to find this thread..............well here we are in the depth of winter early 2014 and time for this years contributions.............the plan is the following

1.....oil and filter.....a must
2.....chain and sprockets.....i give them five years or 15k miles........5 years came first
3.....brake fluid change front n rear
4.....fix the wee things that went wrong........the head light defuser has broken off and is hitting the bulb and the r&g no plate led light no longer works
5....strip and clean brakes front and back......these need to be 100%
6....time to fit radiator guard and oil cooler guard.....money well spent
7.....a good clean while all the plastic is off.......a no brainer while you are in there
