its for the sharing of ideas and information, not verbatim scripts of something you can find out your self for a little wise investment.
getting the service manual is a must if you plan to tinker or service it yourself, so I think its sound advice.
But some basics to check will be, all hose clamps, sc belt, oil, hull, intake and plate for cracks damage, steering nut and cables, reverse lever bolts, (have had this come off), trailer bolts and wheel bearings,
lie under it and it for while and see what you can see if you really dont know what your looking at then take it to your dealer or a trusty mate.

I would suggest buying one, the forum can give you some specific things to check, but I will tell you No one can do the correct job with out refering back to the manual at some time.
hence the commet BUY A MANUAL..

I was also advised to get the Service Manual. There are portions of that Service Manual that are still way over my head but it has been extremely helpful, not only in understanding technical discussions here but in communicating with dealer.
If you run in salt, may want to check salt water Kawi thread. I think a lot of these basic owners manuals understate the special care required for heavy salt use.
Definitely get a battery tender. You always want to know you have full juice, or if not, why not.
Oil level is absolutely critical. Check dipstick before and after every ride for reasons discussed in many different threads.

Right...i agree. a service manual is a must..as well as the SC belt tool. however whenever i see a question from someone and KNOW the answer i GIVE it. ya know.. obviously this guy doesnt have the service manual. so maybe a good comprimise would have been to tell him what you know and then adivse him to get the manual. Sorry for earlier response tho. X girlfriends and alcohol dont make for a "happy GH commentor"
I apologize. im normally nice
LOL - so i posted 2 comments and didnt asnwer the initial 29 hour question either. I'm struggling
