Keep your servicing bills up to date
When you have a service at a dealers ask for the ‘job sheet’ relating to the work done. A stamp in a book is just a stamp. When you do the next service, maybe at another dealer, either you or they will know what has been done. If you sell the bike it looks so much better to have service bills rather than ‘stamps’.
It’s the only thing driving the rear wheel forward! A snapped chain due to poor maintenance is not funny and it could be dangerous. Lubricate regularly every 200 miles or so, even if it’s been raining! Use a good lube, adjust in accordance with the hand book and keep an eye on the wear of the sprockets. If you can’t do it….learn, or get someone who can!
