The title says it all.

I'm back to motorbiking after some 15 years, and am re-learning all over!
I'm making a new luggage rack for my Sprint (as no-one appears to make one for an ST 2003 with factory-fit panniers - so I;m making my own!), and have remove all fairings.

Anyone care to suggest any maintenance I sould be doing while it's stripped to this state?

Thanks!

Taking off the fairings is not that difficult or time consuming, but I always clean it up a bit when they're off while at the same time I look for any broken, fraid, wires or anything else that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. The timing chain cover along with the other covers are easy to take off at this time. How many miles do you have on the bike? Any problems?

Hey thanks for the reply - (sorry I've been away for a few days)

The bike has only got about 3500 km's on it and is generally in very good condition. It's an import (from the USA to NZ - I think) so when it got here the chain and chain guard was covered in thick grease - to protect it from the elements I guess - so that's my first job!

It had a service only 600k's ago, but I'd like to make sure everything else is in order, so if you have any recommendations . . . . ?

Thanks,
Steve
