Biglerville, or Upper Adams...

A bit south is the best there is IMO. Just visited the Robbinsville NC region. Motorcycle bliss is the Cherohala Skyway. Wife and I took Sklyine Dr (boring) straight to the BRP. Epic ride!

OK so now that I have her, what to do first? I have downloaded the service manual & will start with the general maintenance stuff (oil, fluids, filters, etc.) anything else to be aware of? Starting to read the knowledge base here.

Welcome to the best forum for the best bike.

There are only a few nuts on here. Don't listen if they tell you I'm one.

Ride safe.

Welcome. They're very good bikes. As noted do manual CCTs and R/R.

Oil changed first. Some idiot put both the filter & drain plug on TIGHT! Oh well no damage and now there is fresh blood in the bike. Picked up some DOT 4 brake fluid today and will do the brakes & clutch fluid next.

Brakes bled, clutch fluid R&R, air filter ordered ($50+ bucks ouch!).

Help me out on plugs. I'm thinking NGK DPR9EIX-9 Iridium, is that right?

Looks about right, lol!

I hate when people get ham fisted on the filters. For cripes sake, it doesn't hold the engine cases together!

Although I love my 15 ZX14R, I've been riding the VTR much more this summer, even with the ***** forks n bearings. So much fun!
