OK we'll i'm about to hit 11k miles on my 02sv. I do oil changes regularly but besides that what should i be looking into? i hear talk about plugs, and rejetting.. im not ashamed to admit i know almost nothing when it comes to technical issues, cosmetic work im pretty good at but mechanical things ehhh, im too scared to fuk something up... somebody fill me in, id appreciate it, thanks in advance

the recomended schedule is in the owners manual

minor service every 3500-4000 miles in cludes oil changem fastener check, lube & adjust throttle clutch cables, chain, shift linkage, make sure choke cable is operating freely, lube levers etc, much more than just an oil change

intermediate service every 7500 miles ± includes minor service + new plugs, carb sync, clean air filter etc.

major service every 15k, includes minor & intermediade service, + valve inspection, things like brake fluid, cooland should be checked, fluched if necessary, radiator hoses brake lines checked for weakenss etc.


the most important things I find that my dealer does when servicing are the little things, clean & lube linkages, levers cables and things like that, every time I pick my bike up after a service, it's like I'm getting a new bike

my SV is in for 120k major service tomorrow, I dropped it off tonite so they have cold valves in the morning..... I'll be riding my 920r tomorrow
